About Uswhat we believe and where it comes from
All of our beliefs and convictions are derived from the Bible. The Bible is our final and ultimate authority. Our doctrines and distinctives are not original to us, but come to us from the historic and reformed faith. The celebration of the Sovereign Grace of God at Community is rooted in the Reformation itself. We are an old soul theology in a modern context. What we do as a church is driven by what we believe.

The Second Coming
We teach that Jesus will return to earth bodily (Acts 1:11, Titus 2:12-13, Rev. 1:7, John 14:3) in order to deliver His elect (Matt. 24:31), to execute judgment (2 Thess. 1:6-10, Acts 3:13-26) upon the living and the dead (2 Tim. 4:1, 1 Pet. 4:5), to consummate His kingdom (2 Sam. 7:12-13, Rev. 20:10) as promised to Abraham (Gen. 12:1-3, Heb. 11:10), Israel (Eze. 37:1-14, Luke 1:68-79), and the Church (Gen. 17:1-8), to abolish all earthly rule, authority and power (1 Cor. 15:24), to put an end to the last enemy, which is death (1 Cor. 15:26), and to reconcile all things to himself, having made peace by the blood of His cross (Col. 1:20).
The Eternal State
We believe that all those who have believed on and have received the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour will, at death, immediately enter into His presence in Heaven and will there remain in conscious comfort until the resurrection of the body at His coming for His bride, the Church, when spirit, soul and body will be reunited and they, together with those raptured alive at His coming for the church, will dwell with Him forever in the glory. (Luke 16:19-26; 23:43; John 3:36; II Cor. 5:8; Phil. 1:23; II Thess. 1:7-9; Rev. 20:11-15; 21:8)
