Why Christ Proclamation Church?
Because it's a great description of who we are as a body of believers.
Christ and His finished work on the cross is the foundation of our faith. He is the beginning and the end and the very center of all of history, Christianity, and the church. That's why Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, points to the good news of the gospel; that sinful man can be reconciled to a holy God, forgiven of their sin and granted the hope of eternal life, only through faith in Christ's substitutionary death on the cross. Christ holds first place in everything, including the name of this church.
Proclamation is really the outworking of our faith in Jesus Christ. When you have truly experienced salvation, there's nothing you want more than for other people to know the joy of having their sins forgiven and the hope of eternal life. Our passion for gospel proclamation is captured in the phrase, "Knowing Christ and making Him known." In other words, to know Christ is to proclaim Christ. Proclamation is at the center of our name because it's the very heartbeat of this church.
Church is the assembly of God's people. It's a community of those who have embraced the Lord Jesus Christ by faith and gather together to encourage and stimulate one another to love and good deeds. It's a local expression of those who love and follow the Lord Jesus Christ and want to walk in a manner worthy of the gospel. Church is not a physical building or a dead institution. It's God’s people coming together and living so gloriously different that people say, "Surely God is in that place!"
