CHRIST UNIVERSAL CHURCH

 "Impacting Our World with the Love of Christ"

 love



Christ Universal Church (CUC) - is the congregational ministry of Amazing Grace Ministries. CUC - is a community of believers (followers of Christ), who are committed to fellowship, worship and discipleship. We believe that God created us to live life in community... and we believe that we do this best, as we "do life together". The church, as Jesus intended is not a place, building, denomination, or religion; but a local community of believers, who are on one accord. CHURCH IS NOT A PLACE, so our focus is on being the church; not on going to church. As a member of CUC, it is our prayer that you will come to understand that "church" is so much more than a place that you go or a service that you attend and prayerfully you will also learn how to enjoy and participate with others by living in community or (common unity) with others, caring for and sharing with one another 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year... we call this "doing life together". You are welcome and invited to join us for our weekly Cell Church Fellowships for teaching, prayer, breaking of bread and fellowship, as well as, our monthly Corporate Worship & Training; as we gather to exalt Christ, edify one another, and evangelize the lost through fellowship, worship, and discipleship wherever two or three are gathered in His name. We have opportunities are available for those who would like to join our ministry team as a Cell Church Leader, as we have a mandate to plant at least 49 cell churches across the southeastern states of SC, GA, FL, AL, MS, LA and TN, as well as, other region as the Holy Spirit directs. We are currently developing the model property for our Affordable Housing Initiative  - "Paradise Village & Retreat Center" in Southeast, GA, which is designed as a retirement community for our members and ministry partners age 50 and up, it also serves a retreat center for relaxation, restoration, and recreation. You are welcome and invited to join us for our weekly Cell Church Fellowships that are currently in the Atlanta, Macon, and Savannah, GA and surrounding communities. Contact us to find out how you can "Get Connected" with us or how you can plant a Cell Church in your local community.

FOUNDATIONAL SCRIPTURE

"For we are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that we may declare the praises of Him who has called us out of darkness into His wonderful light."

(1 Peter 2:9)

MINISTRY OBJECTIVES

The word used in the New Testament for church is the word ekklesia, which means the "called-out ones.” or “ those called into.” That is is called out of darkness, into light and called unto service for the glory of God and the good of mankind. In the simplest terms the church is God’s chosen people. called out of darkness into the Kingdom of His marvelous light. It is our prayer and aim that (1) every follower of Christ live radiantly and abundantly, (2) maintain a personal relationship with Christ by faith and, (3) are united to the body of believers by the power of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:12-13). Jesus founded and empowered His church to address the universal problem of sin through His universal plan of salvation, as manifested to the world through His universal church. Our growth strategy and priorities are (1) Spiritual, (2) Geographical, and (3) Numerical by serving the needs of the whole person: mind, body, and soul and our Cell Church Leaders are committed to caring for each and every member by displaying the love and character of Christ. Our goal as followers of Christ should be to live the life of Christ and share that life with others; as we "do life together" through...

  • Fellowship
  • Worship
  • Discipleship


FELLOWSHIP

"Fellowship" - The Biblical Greek word for fellowship is “koinonia.”  It is usually translated in English to “communion,” “fellowship,” “sharing in common” and “partake.” Another way of putting it is... you now have "common unity" with others. The usage of Greek words belonging to the koin-family refer primarily, though not invariably, to participation in something rather than to association with others, and there is often a possessive word (genitive) to indicate that in which one participates or shares. “sharing” or “fellowship” arises out of the common sharing of something tangible. This is Christian fellowship: sharing together in Christ. Many times, Scripture speaks of sharing or partaking in Christ together and the effects that it should have on us in practical ways. Simply put, this means "doing life together". The Bible makes it clear that our fellowship in Christ should lead to unity and a spirit of community. We introduce members into fellowship through our new members course entitled:... "The Body of Christ."



WORSHIP

"Worship" - we gather as a body to praise and exalt Christ. It is more than a service; it is an act of submission that reflects the honor, majesty and presence of God in our midst and can happen or take place anywhere We strive to to create an atmosphere of worship where each person can hear from God and be heard of God and receive the joy, peace, strength, hope, encouragement and renewal that only God can give as we exalt Christ through teaching, prayer, praise, and worship. It doesn't matter whether there are two or two thousand gathered, as the presence of Christ is in the midst of those who gather in His name. Our members are introduced to the basic principles of worship through our new members course entitled:.. "Principles of Worship.


DISCIPLESHIP

 building community







connection







"Discipleship" - this was Jesus’ method of winning souls for the Kingdom of God. In fact, Jesus converted very few people in His earthly ministry in a clear-cut way. He literally staked His whole ministry on twelve men. As popular as He was during His earthly ministry, Jesus did not focus on the momentary applause of men: but rather He quietly poured His life into those who would multiply and who would in turn pour themselves into others, so that they too would multiply. Jesus was not trying to impress others or gather a crowd around Himself:, but to usher in the Kingdom of God - (God's way of doing things). In the Scriptures, we see that Jesus calls His followers  to continue the mission of actively teaching and sharing the gospel by make disciples of all nations . We introduce members to discipleship through our new members course entitled:... "Foundations for New Life".




MINISTRY MODEL


Our ministry model is centered around three key biblical principles: "fellowship", "worship" and  "discipleship". This allows us to build authentic and genuine relationships that edify one another, and helps to expand the mission of Christ and His Church.

We are committed to helping one another to grow in grace and favor with God and man and the key principle that we use accomplish this task is bu impacting our world with the Love of Chris". Loving God, Loving One Another, and Loving Yourself.






A PARADIGM SHIFT




At CUC, our focus is on building people; not buildings. We believe in following the example of Christ, as He taught His early disciples that they must go and make disciples of all nations. And just as they we taught to cast their nets where the fish are, so must we have a vision to reach people where they are and this requires that we... "love, lead, and live outside the box". Come... let's do life together!
