Leadership at CNC
A word to the 2013 CNC Leadership Team, it is imperative that there be
Unity within our community. It is extremely important that we are on the same page concerning leadership philosophy, Christian doctrine and the culture of CNC.
Leadership Philosophy To be a leader within CNC is to walk with others on their life’s journey from earth to heaven. We hesitate to give road maps or easy answers. Spirituality is discovered and unfolds. Faith in God is never forced on people. We are to encourage, pray, model, and point away from self and to Jesus Christ.
Christian Doctrine The New Testament is our authority for morals and belief. One difficulty we often have is that we accept teachings and practices uncritically. We are to be like the Berean Christians of Acts 17. At the end of the day, Christians are to give witness to the Death and Resurrection of Jesus and His love.
The CNC Culture We are to love and care for one another. CNC is a community of love. We are a culture of placing others before self. There are no superstars at CNC. Every person is as important as every other person. Pastor Ellison does not rule over CNC, but serves CNC. Love, not Church politics, is what CNC is about.
God is with us. Let’s focus our efforts to lift up the name.
