In Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus gave his followers “ The Great Commission”, one of the most comprehensive and compelling statements in the Bible.
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Our Missions Philosophy at Cedar Creek is rooted in this biblical passage. The Great Commission commands us to be Great Commission Christians who are 100% committed and dedicated to multiplying the church. We strive to live as disciples who actively make disciples, and we strive to empower others to multiply and make more disciples in our church, local community, and globally.
‘Missions’ is the longest standing, highest priority ministry at our church. As a team, it is our desire for everyone at the Creek to become personally engaged in living the Great Commission, as we seek to integrate missions into the very heart of CCCC. We are working towards embracing, supporting, and participating in evangelism and humanitarian service in local, national and global communities.
These four distinct values guide and encompass our actions in missions at Cedar Creek Community Church:

  • Engaging – Attracting and involving people directly in the Great Commission.
  • Empowering – Unleashing our church missionaries and the people of Cedar Creek by supporting them physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
