History

A group of Chinese Christians led by the Holy Spirit started a Bible study fellowship in Indianapolis in 1968. The group met at the Northminster Presbyterian Church for worship services. This congregation was transformed into the Chinese Community Church of Indianapolis in November 1973. The group physically moved to the Meridian Street Methodist Church sanctuary for services in the fall of 1974. Subsequently, the church settled at the location on Broadway Avenue on August 1982. Over the past few years, the group grew in desperate need of larger facilities. By God’s grace, the church purchased and moved into the present location at 3405 E. 116th Street in Carmel in June 1999.

The church organization consists of administration, finance, education, worship, fellowship, mission and caring ministry. The congregation elects deacons to oversee various responsibilities within the church as well as to guide the brothers & sisters in serving the Lord together.

1968年間,一群基督徒在神的引導下,於印城開始查經班的工作。最先,他們使用Northminster Presbyterian教堂聚會並且於1973年11月定名為「印城華人教會」;在1974年秋改借Meridian Street Methodist教堂聚會,最後在1982年買下座落在56街和Broadway交接口的一所教堂,從此才正式擁有屬於自己的聚會場所。近年來由於人數的增長和使用空間的不足,於1999年6月神恩待我們,使教會得以搬遷並買下現址。 教會會務共分為行政部、財務部、教育部、崇拜部、團契部、宣教部和關懷部。教會每年甄選執事和同工分別負責各部門事工,並帶領會內弟兄姐妹同心事奉主。

Beliefs

Statement of Faith

  1. We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; and these three are the same in substance, equal in power and glory.
  2. We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and the New Testaments as verbally and plenary inspired by God and inerrant in the original writing, and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.
  3. We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.
  4. We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred, not only physical death but also that spiritual death which is separation from God and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and, in the case of those who reach moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word, and deed.
  5. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins; according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
  6. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, and in His present life there for us, as High Priest and Advocate.
  7. We believe in the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit, who convicts the sinner, regenerates, indwells, enlightens and guides the believer.
  8. We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again by the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God.
  9. We believe on "that blessed hope" the personal and premillennial and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
  10. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust; the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.

Based on the above statement, the Chinese Community Church of Indianapolis devotes its ministries to the Chinese both Overseas and American-born in accordance with God-given cultural characteristics and regional location.
