Countryside Christian Church is a Bible believing church with a caring heart. We believe every person can and must be saved by personal and free decision to respond to the gospel by trusting in Jesus Christ alone as Lord and Savior. The Pastor/Elder’s role is to work with other men, all of which are considered co- equals and have been called to be Elder’s /Shepherds at CCC. Their role is to develop, communicate and equip the church for gospel growth within our fellowship, and gospel outreach to our community and the world.

We are an independent, fundamental body of believers. We hold to a historical – grammatical (also known as “literal”) way of interpreting the Bible. We believe that the Church began with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, and that the unifying theme of the Bible is the glory of God. We are neither Pentecostal nor Reformed in our beliefs or practices. Our polity is congregational.

We believe that the gospel is the Word of God, which is sufficient in itself, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to enable a response in all who hear God’s appeal to be reconciled to Him (John 6:63; Hebrews 4:12). We believe that all people are sinful and responsible for their sin, but they are also responsible for answering God’s universal call for men to be saved (Titus 2:11). We believe that the Bible teaches that Christ died for all people (1 John 2:2), which is why God promises to save any who come to Him in faith (Romans 10:11–13; Revelation 22:17). We believe that Christ genuinely desires all of humanity to be saved (Luke 5:32; 19:10; 1 Timothy 2:4–6; ).
