COMMUNITY LIFE

What is Community Life at 4C’s?

Our hope at 4Cs is to build an environment where Christians of all stages can enter into transformational discipleship.

What is transformational discipleship?

For us it means that we want to see our community live with dedication to growing deeper in the calling of Christ, deeper into His community, and further in His Kingdom mission. Our faith journey is a lifelong process of learning to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.

We never “graduate” from the school of Christian living. As we learn to apply and obey Christ’s teachings, our life will increasingly reflect our commitment to Christ. In other words, transformational discipleship is the result of a lifelong process. A real, radical change expressed in both our individual and our community life.

To support Christian growth in individuals and within the church, we believe that there are four essential elements that foster the transforming work of the Spirit:

  • God’s Word – Shaping our Actions and our lives

  • Relationships – Community nurturing and encouraging our growth

  • Obedient Living – Abiding in Christ as we hear his call to witness for his name

  • Worship – Interacting with and experiencing the presence of God

Community Life Groups

At 4C’s, we believe it is of the utmost importance that each of us has a place to be known and to know others. No matter how long you have been in our community, if you are looking for a point of connection where you can grow personally and spiritually, consider joining a Community Life Group (CLG) this season.
