About Us

OUR MISSION & BELIEFS

OUR Mission

Our biblical mission is to love God, love and serve others, and make disciples of Jesus Christ.

OUR Vision

A church that seeks, welcomes, and forms in Christian faith all ages of people with a special focus at this time on reaching out more to families and children, increasing our connection with and ministry in the community, and forming more small groups to grow people in relationship with Jesus and one another.

OUR BELIEFS

We believe that God works in our world and in our lives in these ways:

God our creator values all human beings. We are called into partnership with God. God has given us the responsibility for our lives and the life of the world.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the source of our salvation. Through faith in Jesus Christ we are forgiven our sins, made right with God, and given a new life in which faith is lived out in the world. All possible by Christ's death for our sins and resurrection to conquer sin.

The Holy Spirit, God with us, guides us in our Christian life, grows us closer to the image of Christ as we open ourselves to Him, and empowers our daily living.

We believe that the Christian life involves representing God in the world through Christian mission, social witness, and faith sharing. We grow in our faith through participation in the Christian community. We are obligated to reflect thoughtfully on the Scriptures, which are illumined by tradition, brought to life in personal experience, and confirmed by reason.

We believe the Church belongs to God and that the Church in the world is as Scripture puts it "the body of Christ." The Church is to be the physical presence of Christ in the world. As such, our primary aim is to do God’s will.

It is our desire to honor God through our work on His behalf. To that end, we will do His work with these qualities: integrity, grace, excellence, relevance, authentically, passion, humility, faith, inclusivity, commitment, joy, and love.

OUR VALUES

Encounter

It is our hope that through each other, worship, the Word, prayer, and serving that we would find ourselves in the presence of God.

Compassion

Our desire is to be a people that would give hope and compassion to the sick, broken, & hurting. Christ Church is a faith family where one can be transparent and know that regardless of who they are or where they’ve been, they have a seat around the table with the Lord.

Embrace

We are a group that is searching for more to life. For many of us, this is the search for hope, love, and wholeness. For believers, this is the desire to go beyond surface level Christianity and into a deeper walk with Christ through discipleship. Regardless of where you are in the search, we believe that more can only truly be found in the deep and unconditional embrace of God.

Going

When one finds themselves in the embrace of God, they can no longer remain the same person that they were before we become more like Him to ourselves and to those around us. Our greatest desire is to serve and love the people of Racine; that they would experience God and His embrace through us. Through this church, we desire to bring glory and honor to the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
