Here at CCTO, we believe that the Church benefits from a posture of,
“In essentials unity. In non-essentials, liberty. In all things charity.” Below is a list of our “essentials.” 

We believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, that they are distinct personalities with distinct roles, but one God.

We believe that One God is the creator of the universe.

We believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Savior, the Son of God who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, and was raised from the grave. He will return as our victorious Lord.

We believe our salvation comes only through Jesus Christ, cannot be earned, and is a gift of God.

We believe faith in Jesus requires repentance, confession of that faith before witnesses, and obedience to His Word. Baptism by immersion demonstrates our faith and obedience while it depicts our union with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.

We believe everyone who accepts Christ has the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit who acts as a Comforter, Guide, and Advocate.

We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God in its entirety, and is the guide for all of life.

We believe the church as the body of Christ is the extension of Jesus Christ’s character, attitude, behavior, and mission in our world today.

We believe that God gives gifts to both men and women through the Holy Spirit for the building up of the church’s ministry.

We believe that humility in prayer is the foundation for all we do and that celebrating the Lord’s Supper together weekly is beneficial for all Christians.
