CHURCH MISSION, VISION & VALUES
Our Mission: To make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Our Vision: To be a body of growing disciples who impact Cape Cod and the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Our Values: To have the life and power of Jesus Christ among us, by His Word and Spirit, with a Good News message for our neighbors and for the world.
We’re a church centered on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to exalt Him with vibrant worship and by making disciples through teaching, fellowship, evangelism, and service. Over the years we’ve been blessed with a unity that is centered in the Gospel and its impact on each of us. As a member church of the Christian & Missionary Alliance, we continue in the values of the “Christ-life” (depending upon Jesus Christ for our power for living and service) world missions. Our worship is blended – using hymns and contemporary songs, with congregational readings and a praise time open to the congregation for testimonies. We believe the Word of God will do the work of God when properly taught.

Our church was incorporated in 1978 by a group that had been meeting together for Bible study and to form a church. One of the members of that group was a daughter of Alliance missionaries who suggested they contact the New England District of the C&MA. Myron Heckman was called as Pastor shortly thereafter. He was supported by New England Home Missions for three years, with the church assuming increasing financial support over that time.
After ten years of renting, a first church building was constructed in 1987, and expanded in 1997. In November of 2012, the church was burned to the foundation by an arson fire. The arsonist had no connection of the church and was convicted and sentenced in 2014. A new church building was built in the same, but expanded, location and began holding services in the spring of 2016.
The church has supported New England Church planting and the Great Commission Fund (worldwide missions) from its beginning. Over the past ten years it has given over $1,000,000 to Great Commission ministries. That includes our support for a church partnership to start a church and construct a building in the village of Cana Segura, Dominican Republic. We have had intergenerational teams go at least once a year to do ministry with the church.
In 2010 we began supporting a church start in Truro, MA called the Outer Cape Christian church. http://outercapechristianchurch.org/
