What we hold to
Our values seek to outwork the vision of ‘go, plant, build’, which expresses our desire to be planting vibrant and healthy churches throughout the surrounding region as part of a movement which brings heaven to earth!
Values and Partnerships
The core leadership of our church has certain beliefs, values and commitments. This is how we want to live together in our part of the family of God!
They describe us now – the result of walking together relationally for many years – and so they are also the foundation for the future. We have explored a 3-stage model, successively setting out our place in God’s wider church, within the evangelical charismatic family and our distinctive character locally.
As a local church, we are grateful to be a part of the wider body of Christ and to play our part in God’s bigger plans and purposes in the world today. This is expressed through a variety of relationships:
CCD is part of East Midlands Christian Fellowships (EMCF) which has a vision to ‘Go, Plant and Build’ new expressions of church in the East Midlands and beyond!
We have a growing number of active congregations and a desire to equip and build through training and apostolic development.
Each congregation is distinct in its identity and style, the way it does things and the people who are in it - yet as a growing group of churches we do lots of things together such as regular Celebration gatherings and Conferences.
CCD is part of a wider international family of churches and leaders called Salt and Light Ministries which has developed over the last 30 years around a common desire to see the Body of Christ grow to be all God wants it to be.
We believe in strong, loving and committed relationships within local churches and across the Body of Christ throughout the nations as we play our part in God's mission together.
