What We Believe


Our Vision and Mission

Our Vision ... is that every person in our community discover their purpose and experience the fulfillment that God intends for their lives.

Our Mission ... is to provide immediate assistance to members of our community who are experiencing crisis in the areas of food, shelter, or finances while engaging them in a series of actions that will empower them to move beyond crisis.

Our Operating Principles

Our Operating Principles ... guide decision making and provide criteria for participation in CCM's programs.

  • Affirmation – acknowledges each individual as a person of value; created by God, in His image, with equal access to God’s grace as any one of us.
  • Accountability – requires that each individual accept personal responsibility for their circumstances (crisis) and expects each person to actively participate in the solution.

Our Core Values

Our Core Values are principles which guide our ongoing internal conduct and our relationship with the external community.

Prayer undergirds everything we do and is the most important investment our board, staff and volunteers make to the ministry.  Prayer is the most effective way to discover God's plan for our ministry and the most effective means of employing His blessing on our efforts.

Excellence means understanding our role in the Mission and applying our talents, skills and spiritual gifts in a manner that will meet or exceed expectations.  It is our purpose to bring glory to God in all that we do and say in carrying out our ministry responsibilities.  

Encouragement involves affirming the value of each volunteer, staff and supporter; acknowledging the talent, skills and spiritual gifts of each person involved in the ministry with us; and fostering an atmosphere of joy and celebration through God's Word.

Community encompasses embracing accountability to each other and to our community, maintaining a presence throughout our community, recognizing changing needs and altering our approach to ministry in response to those needs.
