CCU affirms that Scripture is divinely inspired and
inerrant in its original manuscripts and, therefore,
the authoritative Word of God and the standard
by which all theological claims, ecclesiastical
practices, social trends, and lifestyle choices must
God, Christ, & Holy Spirit
CCU affirms that God is the sovereign Creator of
the universe, that Jesus Christ is His Son and God
incarnate who died on the cross and was raised
from the dead and who is our only Savior, and that
the Holy Spirit is God indwelling and giving life to
all believers and working in the world to empower
the mission of God.
CCU affirms that God is entirely transcendent,
and His attributes cannot be fully represented by
analogy to anything in the material world. CCU
affirms that both men and women are created in
the image of God. We follow the examples set
in Scripture by using masculine pronouns when
referring to God.
CCU affirms that the beliefs and purposes
of Jesus and the early Church should be
foundational to the beliefs and purposes of the
Church and of local congregations today.
CCU affirms the autonomy of every local
congregation in their faith and practice, including
the calling and ordination of leaders.
