Our Statement of Beliefs

The mandate of Church of Christ Development Company Ltd. (CCDC) is to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ by providing low interest capital loans to congregationally governed churches in Canada, except the Province of Ontario. . Churches that borrow from CCDC are governed independently but share a common set of principles based on a commitment to Biblical integrity.

This Biblical integrity is outlined in the following Statement of Beliefs and Practices:

  • Jesus is the Christ, the son of the living God (Mt 16:16)
  • That Christ died to atone for the sins of all people and was raised from the dead (Ro 4:25, Ro 6:9, Ep 1:20) 
  • The Bible, containing 66 sub-books, is the inspired Word of God, the authority for the teaching, organization and life of the church (2Ti 3:14-16)
  • That we seek the unity of all believers by practicing Biblical Christianity (Jn 17:20, Ep 4:1-13)
  • People are justified by faith in Jesus Christ, confessing Jesus as Lord and Savior, being baptized and obeying His commandments (Jn 3:16, Acts 2:38, Ro 10:9-10, Mt 28: 18-20)
  • Practicing observance of the Lord’s Supper preferably weekly but at least monthly (Mt 26:26-28, Mk 14:22-24, Lu 22: 19-20, 1Co 10: 16-17, 11: 23-32)
