 "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 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 followers of Christ, who are on one accord. As a member of the CUC family, you will come to understand that "church" is so much more than a place that you go to or a service that you attend... prayerfully you will learn that it's about living life in community (common unity) with others where we care for and share with one another. 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 worship and training. 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. One of our current projects is Paradise Village and Retreat Centerwhich is designed to provide a place of rest, refuge and restoration for our members. Contact us to find out how you can participate in our "Mobilizing Believers Training Program"; which allows participants to study our online Associates Degree program @ $10.00 a course. Qualified graduates are eligible to apply for ministerial licensing 90 days after completion and join our ministry team as we... "Impact Our World with the Love of Christ". Join us for our Friendship & Fellowship Saturdays in Paradise Village.

"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)



THE MEANING OF THE WORD "CHURCH"

The word used in the New Testament for church is the word ekklesia, which means “to call out from” or “the called-out ones.” It can also mean “called unto.” In the simplest terms the church is God’s people. It is the believers who have been called out of the world by means of the gospel of Christ. These believers maintain a personal relationship with Christ by faith and are united to the body of believers by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12:12-13). Jesus founded the church to address the universal problem of sin and He address addressed this problem through the universal plan of salvation; as proclaimed and manifested to the world through the universal church.

  • The Universal Problem - "Sin"
  • The Universal Plan - "Salvation"
  • The Universal Church - "Solution" 

If you want to deal with the issue of sin, the answer is found through salvation in Christ, and you become part of the solution by being an active member of His universal church. Contact us to find out ho you can connect with other maturing believers and be a part of the solution, by experiencing and sharing the message of salvation; instead of the problem. We can connect with you wherever you are... there is a place for you in Christ Universal Church. Join us for our Friendship & Fellowship Saturdays in Paradise Village.


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 course entitled: "The Body of Christ."



WORSHIP

"Worship" - is when we gather as a body to 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. We introduce members to worship through our course entitled: "Principles of Worship.


DISCIPLESHIP

 building community







connection







"Discipleship" - was Jesus’ method of winning the world to Himself. In fact, Jesus converted very few people in His earth 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 quietly poured His life in those who would multiply. Jesus was not trying to impress the crowd, but usher in a kingdom. We have seen that Jesus calls His followers to reproduce the example of training disciples to continue the mission of actively teaching and sharing the gospel. We introduce members to discipleship through our course entitled: "Foundations for New Life - Your 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 and we have a place for you. 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... "think, live and serve outside the box".
