Our Goals

Reimagine life because of Jesus.

Our hope is that CCC will participate in a movement of God in Northeast Ohio and beyond through a few specific goals. We are reimagining the next 30 years in three big ways.

Everyone with a Christ-following friend

We believe Jesus is pro-evangelism. He came to seek and save the lost and those far from him (Luke 19:10) — just as he did with us. We believe every church has a role in the mission of Jesus, including ours. We are praying for God to use our church to lead more people to know Jesus by 2050 so that every person within a 10-mile radius of our church has a Christ-following friend. Check out the link below to learn more and see stories of people whose lives have been changed because of Jesus.

Every community with a gospel-preaching church

We believe Jesus is pro-church planting. In the mission of Jesus, evangelism and church planting go hand-in-hand (Acts 14:21-23) — just as what happened here in 1981 when our church was first formed. Because of that, we have a goal to plant 60 churches in Northeast Ohio by 2050 through our Orchard NEO church-planting program. Check out the link below for information about the churches that have been planted so far, and join us in praying for the plants that are to come!

Everywhere with a Jesus-centered witness

We believe Jesus is pro-nations. Matthew 28:19-20 says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” In the mission of Jesus, evangelism and church planting are for all nations. To that end, our church’s focus is to channel our global giving to the least-reached parts of the world, known as the 10/40 Window. You can learn more about the 10/40 Window below or give online if you feel led to do so!

What are people groups?
The term people group refers to an ethnic group defined by culture and language. CCC is planting indigenous churches among the least-reached people groups and helping them grow.

What is the 10/40 Window?
The 10/40 Window refers to the area located from 10 degrees to 40 degrees north of the equator, bordered by the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. This region is home to 95% of all people groups with little or no Christian witness.
