We exist to proclaim the Lordship of Jesus Christ over all things for the joy of all people.
THE WORD OF GOD
The preaching, programs, and people of Cool Community Church are saturated with the Bible--the Word of God. Scripture is God's special and revealed will for humanity. The Bible is to be believed in all it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires, and trusted in all that it promises. The purpose of our sermons is to expose our hearts to the Word of God through expository preaching. Expository preaching is simply preaching that exposes the text of Scripture seeking to understand exactly what God has said. As Wayne Grudem states, “The authority of Scripture means that all the words of Scripture are God’s words in such a way that to disbelieve or disobey any word of Scripture is to disbelieve or disobey God” (Systematic Theology, 73). As we listen to God's Word we want to do so in such a way that we invite Him to change us and seek to submit to the authority of His Word.
THE PEOPLE OF GOD
At Cool Community Church we believe that God has created us to live in community with one another. As Paul Tripp has said, “The Christian life is not a solo venture, it is a community project.” We need to live together in community with one another so that we can grow and be sanctified. A large part of sanctification (spiritual growth) is growing in our love for the gospel. The gospel is not simply something we believed to get saved, it’s something we must continue to believe in order to be sanctified. Because of the importance of the gospel for everyday life we must live in community with one another and continually preach the gospel to one another in order to grow in our sanctification as individuals and as a community.
THE GLORY OF GOD
At Cool Community Church we really do believe that "it's not about us." So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31). The ultimate purpose of every human being is to live a life that displays the greatness of God. We exist to glorify God, to please Him and to display His greatnesss. It is all about His glory, not our own. Indeed, the universe exists to glorify God (Psalm 19:1). So whether it's Vacation Bible School, high school discipleship, or the Young at Heart, we seek to do it all for His glory, not for the glory of Cool Community Church, it's leadership, or its membership.
