The story of Christ Community Church has been a story of faith. Hebrews 11 states that “faith is the substance of things hoped for; the evidence of things not seen” and that “without faith, it is impossible to please God.” Here at CCC, our highest goal is to please and to glorify God. Therefore, vision and faith have always characterized our life as a church. In the future, our hope is to boldly take steps of faith—believing God’s promises and obeying His commands.
Christ Community Church was started in October 2000 by people who felt that there was a need for a new church in the northwest Atlanta metro area—a church that would be a bit different, a church that would be distinctive. So, what is distinctive about Christ Community Church? The answer is that we are a church driven, not by mere programs or activities, but by an overarching sense of purpose—a purpose that is centered on the gospel, the good news of God’s salvation in Jesus Christ. We launched our first public worship service at Lewis Elementary School in Kennesaw on September 16, 2001 and in 2005 moved to Bullard Elementary. In May 2006, God provided a great opportunity for a new location in the Kennesaw Community Center. In August 2008, God enabled CCC to purchase eight acres of prime property on N. Main Street in Kennesaw across from Kennesaw Elementary and Swift-Cantrell Park. Most recently, sensing God’s leading to move more immediately into a 24/7 facility the congregation has voted to market the eight acres for sale. Also, after 13 years of faithful ministry to CCC, Lead Pastor Mike Glass resigned effective December 15, 2013. Cameron Barham was called and began as pastor September 2014. This is a time of big changes for CCC, and a time to look in trust and hopeful anticipation for how God will grow His people and His church in times of change.
As a church, we are members of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) which means that we submit to Jesus Christ as King and Head of the Church, God’s Word as revealed in the Old and New Testaments, the doctrinal standards as set forth in the Westminster Confession of Faith (WCF), the Larger Catechism, and Shorter Catechism, and governance and worship as defined by the Book of Church Order (BCO). We are locally members of the Northwest Georgia Presbytery (NWGP) and regularly participate in biannual Presbytery meetings as part of our connection to the church universal.
