Christ Church is a mission of the Presbyterian Church in America.
Here at Christ Church Carrollton, Jesus Christ is at the center of our life together. He is “the living Stone” in whom we too are being built into “a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood” (1 Peter 2:4). Jesus is at the heart of our worship, our work, our service, our fellowship. He is the reason we are able to call on God our Father in prayer. It is through his atoning sacrifice on the cross—where he willingly substituted himself for sinners like us—that we now have life. God the Holy Spirit draws us to Jesus and fills our hearts with gratitude for all he has done.
At Christ Church Carrollton, we preach and teach the Bible at every opportunity. The Holy Spirit speaks to us through its pages. Written down by men, it is at the same time “God-breathed” (2 Timothy 3:16). With the authority of God himself, the Bible speaks to us of his grace and holiness. It is absolutely trustworthy: we can build our lives on it. Of course, above everything else, the written Word bears witness to the Word Incarnate, Jesus Christ, and it’s in him (and his words) that we find the motive and the model for everything we do.
All this stirs our hearts to Christian mission—reaching out in Christ’s Name across geographic, ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, and linguistic barriers (Isaiah 49:6). While our mission takes many forms, all our work is aimed at bringing people the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Christ Church Carrollton stands in the strongly reformed tradition of men like John Knox, John Calvin, Charles Simeon, and, more recently, Tim Keller, J.I. Packer and Dick Lucas.
