Worship—It is the church’s highest calling to worship God—personally (1 Cor. 10:31), familially (Deut. 6:4-9), and corporately (Ps. 95:6). Particularly in corporate worship on the Lord’s Day, we serve God with our praise, and he serves us through his Word and by the Spirit. This worship is regulated by Scripture. We gather every Sunday morning at 10:30am and on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Sunday nights of the month, 5:30pm.
Equip—Through the ministry of the primary means of grace (Word, Sacrament, and Prayer), the people of God are equipped for every good work (Eph. 4:11-16). This means, corporate worship is essential at CPC. Equipping also occurs as Christians gather in Sunday School classes, small groups, Wednesday night ministry, and informally in homes. The grace of God in the Gospel trains the mind, heart, and will to love and follow Jesus. As the love of Christ is set before us in his life, death, and resurrection, we are compelled to live not for self but to persevere in life and godliness (2 Cor. 5:14-15).
Fellowship—As a Body of Believers, CPC intentionally seeks to build one another up through word and deed (Eph. 4:29-32, Gal. 6:10). We desire to be a church where friendships are established and nurtured through worshipping together, hospitality, and service to one another (Acts 2:42, Rom. 12:13, Gal. 5:13). We do this through weekly worship, regular fellowship meals, monthly small groups, and simply being involved each other’s lives, so that we might spur one another on in love and good deeds (Heb. 10:24).
Proclaim—CPC is committed to Gospel proclamation, publicly through the preaching of Scripture (Rom. 10:14-15), and as Believers seeking to be salt and light (Mat. 5:13-16). We at CPC want to give a reason for the hope that we have, in Jesus Christ, but we want to do this with gentleness and respect (1 Pet. 3:15). We are seeking to be faithful witnesses in our own community, through personal evangelism and community outreach events. We also support various missionaries planting and establishing reformed and Presbyterian works nationally and around the world.
