Statement of Faith
believe that there is only one sovereign God eternally existent in
three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the independent
Creator of the heavens and the universe and is all-knowing,
all-powerful, just, loving, completely truthful and holy (Genesis 1:1,
26, 27; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14;
Isaiah 6:3; Titus 1:2; John 3:16; 1 Chronicles 29:11-12).
believe that the Bible (66 books: 39 Old Testament books and 27 New
Testament books) is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired, inerrant
and infallible. It is our supreme authority in all matters of faith,
doctrine and conduct. We also affirm its sufficiency, clarity, and
necessity for genuine Christian living (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter
1:20-21; Pslams 119:105; Pslams 19:7-11; Proverbs 30:5).
believe that salvation, with its forgiveness of sins, impartation of a
new nature and eternal life, is a free gift from God received when a
person trusts in Jesus Christ to be his only Savior and Lord. Salvation
is given by God's grace and cannot be earned by man through good works,
baptism, church membership or any other means (Romans 6:23; Ephesians
2:8-9; John 14:6; John 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1).
believe that water baptism by immersion is an act of obedience to
Christ's command. It is a public confession of our personal faith in
Jesus Christ. As Christ died for our sins, we raised from death, we
walk in newness of life with Him (Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9; Colossians
2:12; Romans 6:3-4).
believe that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man, that He
was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He lived a
sinless life. He was crucified and He died to pay the penalty for our
sins. By His blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect sacrifice for
sin once-and-for-all time and was raised from the dead on the third
day. Later, He ascended to the Father's right hand where He reigns as
the Head of the Church and intercedes for believers. We believe He is
coming again to the earth bodily and visibly to set up His Kingdom
(Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5,14; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1
Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus
2:13; Ephesians 1:22; Hebrews 7:25).
Every Christian's Mission
believe that it is God's will and command for every Christian to be
actively engaged in telling others how to establish a personal
relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ and in discipling
those who respond to the good news of salvation ( 2 Timothy 1:7-8, 4:2;
2 Corinthians 5:19-20; Matthew 28:19-20).
The Holy Spirit
believe that the Holy Spirit is God and possesses all the Divine
attributes. He indwells all believers, baptizes all believers at the
moment they trust in Jesus Christ to be their only Savior and Lord. He
controls and empowers all true believers to live the Christian life in
response to their obedience, confession of sins, and submission to Him
(Romans 8:9-11; 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; Acts 1:8; 1
Corinthians 3:16; 1 Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25;
believe that good works are not the means to salvation but are the
expected by-product in the life of a true believer in Christ. The
evidence of true salvation and true faith is repentance, good works,
and change lives. It is every believer's responsibility to pursue a
life of good works through the power of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians
2:8-10; Galatians 6:9-10; Matthew 5:16; 1 Timothy 6:18).
The CCF Story
the early 1980s, Peter Tan-Chi began an evangelistic home Bible study in Brookside
Subdivision, Cainta. Only three couples attended that first Bible study in the home of Ike and Del Punsalang. But as they began to invite their friends, the Bible study grew and moved to San Juan to the garage of Loreto Carbonel.
A core group of
40 people -- businessmen, professionals, and their families -- emerged from these Bible studies. In 1984, they met at the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) for
their first Christ's Commission Fellowship Sunday worship service.
Since then, CCF's continuous growth has caused its worship services to move from place to place. From AIM, services moved to Greenbelt then to the
Conference Room of the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) and then to the PICC Plenary Hall. Worshippers
then split in order to attend at two different venues: one in Sucat, and one at the Valle Verde Country Club. Eventually in 1997, CCF settled at St.
Francis Square in Ortigas Center. Last May 2013 marked the inauguration of the new CCF Center at Fontera Verde, Ortigas.
Today by God's grace, CCF is a thriving church of approximately 30+ outreaches here in the Philippines and abroad. It
is a unique fellowship composed and led by lay men and women, all of whom still
share God's love and the Gospel in the style of the first century
Christians: in small groups, in their homes, communities, and
workplaces. It is an indigenous church which operates without foreign
affiliation or financial assistance.
The vision that the Lord gave to
the leaders of CCF is to establish a church patterned after that of the
New Testament. CCF places emphasis on the active participation and ministry
of lay people committed to obeying Christ's command as given in
'Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you....'
This command is often dubbed the Great Commission; hence, the church is named Christ's Commission
Fellowship. According to Scripture, all Christians are called by the Lord
to be ministers, to make committed followers of Jesus Christ.
