Have you given up on God?

Do you even believe that He exists?


Do you know that He wants you to know Him, to love Him?

and it's possible....

What's stopping you from getting to know God?
Lots of people have tried to get to know God, and given up.

Lots of people have decided that God doesn't exist or is totally irrelevant to them.
Some people just don't find the time to think about anything more than the problems in their lives.
Does this sound familiar to you?
Let's be honest: not one of us goes through life without doubts and problems.

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my path
Psalm 119:105

Do you hate the thought of someone inviting you to church?
Ours is a church for ordinary people who know that they haven't got it all sussed.
But we really believe that Jesus is the way to know God personally.
Now may be the right time for you to find out more about what the Bible actually says about God, and you.....

We are God’s church.
We seek to love first and most God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We seek to love each other as we love ourselves.
We seek to reach out with the gospel of grace to the people of Kircubbin and others who we come in to contact with.

Kircubbin Community Church is just a group of people, most of us Christians, who gather together each Sunday in Maxwell Court on Kircubbin Main Street, to find out more about God.

Our services are very informal and welcoming.
We want people who are asking big questions to come and join us, and enjoy the opportunity to discover some answers.

We believe the that Bible clearly says that we can know God through His Son, Jesus.
Jesus said: "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life."



Each of us has a big problem that gets in the way of knowing God.
It's called sin.
If you want to get to know God, then your sin needs to be dealt with because God is Holy and Perfect.
Some people think that God is harsh because He judges the wrong things we do. But the great news is that He isn't harsh, God loves us enough to find a way to sort out our sin and our relationship with Him.
His own son, Jesus, agreed to take our place, taking the blame and the punishment for the things that we've done wrong.
That punishment was His torture and death on a Roman cross about 2000 years ago (a historical fact).

If you believe and trust that Jesus accepted this punishment on your behalf, it means that you can enjoy a real relationship with God.
Jesus didn't stay dead.
He took His life back, which means that death isn't the end for us.

It is very important for you to work out where you stand in relation to God.
We want to help you in your search for Him.....



On Sundays we meet in Maxwell Court for coffee, tea and juice at 10:30am
Our service begins at 11am
We have TotZone for toddlers and babies.
And for primary school age children, there is WhizzKidz.

Mid-Week we meet in each others' homes to pray and study the Bible.
On Sunday evenings we also have Teen Spirit youth fellowship for secondary school-aged young people.

Summer WhizzKidz
Every summer since 1997 we have run a Holiday Bible Club for the children and teenagers of Kircubbin.
We started with less than a dozen children, and in recent years we have had more than 100 children and young people involved.

 

Our Church Covenant

What is the purpose of the church covenant ?

  • It is a promise, identifying our expectations of each other and how we will live together as a local church.
  • It holds out a biblical standard by which we determine to live.
  • It forms the ethics and moral principles of our worldview.

Our acceptance of this multifaceted document follows the practice of believers throughout the centuries who have pledged to God and one another to live out the gospel in community.
By featuring this covenant in our life together, we strive to protect ourselves from individual and corporate sin, spurring one another on to live in the light of a greater covenant, one initiated by love, sealed by sacrifice, and kept for eternity by our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
New members will be required to sign up to it when joining the church and it shall be used annually and on occasions as appropriate, to publicly renew our commitment to one another as part of the body of Christ.

Believing the Spirit of God has led us to repent2 and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as our Saviour,3 and having been baptised upon our profession of faith,4 in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit,5 we do now, as one body in Christ,6 relying on His gracious help, solemnly and joyfully renew our covenant with each other.

With the help of the Holy Spirit7 we will walk together in Christian love,8 as is fitting for the members of a Christian Church.9 We will work and pray for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace,10 and with affection and attention we will watch out for one another,11 caring,12 instructing and encouraging in the ways of the Lord.13 We will rejoice at each other’s happiness and endeavour with tenderness and sympathy to bear each other’s burdens and sorrows.14 We will be slow to take offence15 and eagerly desire reconciliation.16 We will not forsake meeting together,17 nor neglect to pray for ourselves and others.18

We will do our best to bring up those under our care in the ways of the Lord,19 and by a pure and loving example seek the salvation of our family and friends.20 We will determine, with God’s help, to live carefully in the world21 by denying all ungodliness and worldly lusts,22 remembering that, as we have been voluntarily buried by baptism and raised again from the symbolic grave,23 we are now under a special obligation to lead a new and holy life.24

We will work together25 for the continuation of a faithful evangelical ministry in this church26 as we sustain its worship,27 ordinances,28 discipline,29 and doctrines.30 We will contribute cheerfully and regularly31 to the support of the ministry,32 the expenses of the church,33 helping the poor,34 and the spread of the Gospel through all nations.35

Whenever we do move on from this place, we will unite with another local church as soon as possible, where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.36 May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. Amen.37

You will note Scripture references given along with the things which we promise. This is because the Covenant is not something in addition to, but the very teachings of Gods Word put in the form of a covenant, vow or promise.
