History of Christ Community Church



 

Sunday May 25th 2008 was an extraordinarily beautiful spring day in Mount Airy, North Carolina. At 10 AM that morning a group of just over 100 people gathered together in the back parking lot of the Creekside Cinemas to worship God in spirit and truth. Songs of praise were sung, prayers were prayed, the Word was preached and Christ Community Church was born. The people who gathered were a diverse group, but they shared a common commitment to God and His Word.

The next Sunday God opened the door for us to begin meeting regularly at Millennium Charter Academy. They were incredibly helpful and kind to us and were used of God in a wonderful way to provide us with excellent facilities for our Sunday and Wednesday meetings, until we moved into our new facility on Riverside Drive.   We experienced great joy and blessing in this endeavor as the Lord richly blessed us. We celebrated our first baptism, two babies dedicated, our first wedding, the beginning of the regular taking of the Lord’s Supper, the organization of a Sunday School, the WMU, and men’s group, and affiliating with the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and the Southern Baptist Convention by beginning our giving to both the Cooperative Program and various Missions Offerings.

In February of 2009 we adopted three guiding documents: our Statement of Faith, our Constitution, and our Membership Covenant. We officially voted Dr. David J. Brady to be our pastor and the first elder in our church. We recognized several other men who are currently being trained to share in the responsibilities of that office with him.

In May of 2009 we celebrated our first anniversary and continue to press forward in building on the foundation of Christ and His Word. On August 23rd 2009 we held our first member’s meeting and officially voted in our charter membership and considered many important issues for the life and future of our congregation.

On May 25, 2014, God blessed us with our new building, at 507 Riverside Drive, Mount Airy, NC

We are excited by all that God has done in us and through us, but we recognize that we have only just begun. We have been greatly blessed and know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that everything we do is by His grace and for His glory…for from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen.
