COMMUNITY LIFE

What is Community Life at 4C’s?

Learning to love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength is a life-long process. We never “graduate” from the school of Christian living. As we learn to apply and obey Christ’s teachings, our lifestyle will increasingly reflect our commitment to Christ. In other words, the result of this life-long process is real, radical change, as expressed in both our individual and our community life.
To support holistic and integrated formation within individuals and within the church, we believe that there are four essential elements that foster the transforming work of the Spirit. Practices within each of these 4 areas should be engaged by our community
  • 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

Our hope at 4C’s is to 1. help mature believers to become disciples, 2. encourage others to take responsibility for their Christian growth, 3. encourage the Community of Faith to take responsibility for the growth of its people, and 4. create an environment where Christian formation is centered of the calling of Christ for growing deeper in Christ and further in His Kingdom mission.

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.
