What would you be willing to do to save the life of your child or someone you love? What are you willing to do to introduce people around you to the Lord Jesus Christ? Christ Church is willing to do whatever it takes to introduce people to the love of Christ. Our mission statement at Christ Church is “To reach millions of unchurched persons by developing thousands of fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ” – a big mission, but we have a big God. And our God is full of big, unfailing love. Christ Church is about reaching and developing. We want to reach people (individuals and families) who have yet to belong; and then to develop them so that they live into their full potential, with complete commitment to Christ. This is what God has done for us. God reached for us when He crossed the eternal portals of heaven and came to earth, when He gave the world the gift of His Son.
Reaching & Developing

Where do you turn for comfort, for answers in this post-pandemic grid we find ourselves? Thoughts regarding life, work, and family relationships have been fine-tuned. Many people continue to deal with grief over the loss of a loved one. Extreme loneliness and isolation has caused many to suffer silently. Interruption of work and school routine is still affecting us, resulting in a lack of focus, motivation, meaning and purpose, at some level. Anxiety and depression is a daily battle for many of us. Are you weighed down with troubles? Where do you find respite? This week we are looking at our fifth essential core value represented by the “S” in the acronym of C-H-R-I-S-T. “Small Groups are the best place for life change.”
Incarnational & Inspirational Worship
August 21, 2022 • Dr Charles Kyker
Using the acronym C-H-R-I-S-T, the fourth core value of Christ Church is ‘I’ – “Incarnational and inspirational worship that is relevant and authentic is at the heart of who we are as we help people grow closer in their walk with Christ.” This fourth core value is a big one! What comes to mind when you think about worship? What does worship mean to you—how would you describe (explain, define) worship to someone who has no clue about God, the church, or who Jesus Christ is? Often, even those of us familiar with Christianity and the church may think of worship as a corporate service involving music, teaching, communion, and prayer. Others may think of worship as an event resembling a Christian concert. Still others may think of worship more in terms of a private setting, involving solitude and quiet reflection. Worship means different things to different people. What does the Bible say about worship?
