Mission & Vision
The primary mission of Communities 4 Christ is to reach the lost with the salvation that is found in Jesus Christ alone. We see this mission as a common thread which will unite the body of Christ. We desire for denominational walls to come down as we rally around this common purpose. This leads us to our primary vision. The primary vision of Communities 4 Christ is the unification of the body of Christ. We believe that evangelism is the tool for unification of the body. As we at Communities 4 Christ seek to mobilize individual members of the body for evangelistic purposes, this common purpose of reaching the lost will bring the body together as one.
Denominational walls will fall in response to the final prayer of our Lord and Savior in John 17. Jesus said in verse 11 "that they all may be one, as we are.” Again in verse 21 "that they all may be one; as you Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us; THAT THE WORLD MAY BELIEVE THAT YOU HAVE SENT ME." Could it be that the very condition required for the world to believe in Jesus…a.k.a..REVIVAL….is the unification of the body of Christ? Again in verse 22 "And the glory which you gave me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one."
It is the glory, the presence of God, the precious Holy Spirit, that makes us all one body in Christ. First Corinthians 12:13 "for by one spirit are we all baptized into one body…and have been all made to drink into one spirit." We are all one body in Christ. Again in verse 23 "that they may be made perfect in one; and THAT THE WORLD MAY KNOW THAT YOU HAVE SENT ME..." Isn't it interesting that Jesus stated the condition for revival a second time? Our oneness as a body leads to the world believing...WOW!!!
Communities 4 Christ desires to be a vehicle facilitating the fulfillment of the final prayer of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
| Matthew 28:19-20
The vision of Communities 4 Christ is nothing less than revival. This vision of revival will only be achieved as members within the body of Christ unify for the sole purpose of reaching the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thus, unity becomes the precursor for revival. Without unity within the body of Christ, revival is rendered null and void. Remember the final prayer of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Jesus specifically addressed this issue twice within his prayer in John chapter 17.
John 17:21, "That they all may be one; as you Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that you have sent me."
John 17:23, "I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that you have sent me, and have loved them, as you have loved me."
Jesus Christ specifically stated that the required condition for the world to believe on Him is oneness within the body. The precursor for revival is the unity of the body of Christ. This leads us to our general statement regarding the beliefs of Communities 4 Christ. Our general statement of beliefs is the following: Unity in the essentials......Liberty in the non-essentials......Love over all.
