Mission Statement: Welcoming, Worshipping, Serving

What we believe:

Epping Community Church believes the true expression of God is expressed through the Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe this Trinity to be the foundation of the Christian Faith.

God is personally active in our lives and thus every person can have a meaningful relationship with God through the person of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Bible is the Word of God and essential for our daily living guided by the interpretation of theological scholars in light of modern scholarship and individual understanding.

Lastly, to believe and do is to follow Christ’s great commandments. “You shall love the Lord your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind” and the second is like it: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself”. ~Matthew 22: 37-39. And thus, we are a church dedicated to serving people locally and globally.
