The Conservative Congregational Christian Conference (CCCC) is a Calvinist Christian denomination headquartered in Lake Elmo, Minnesota, United States. It was founded in 1948 by a group of churches that left the Congregational Christian Churches because they disagreed with the denomination’s liberal theological stance.
The CCCC has about 42,000 members in over 298 churches in the United States and Canada. It is a congregational denomination, which means that each church is autonomous and self-governing. The CCCC has a national body, the General Conference of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference, which provides resources and support to its member churches.
The CCCC is a conservative denomination that holds to the five points of Calvinism: total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and the perseverance of the saints. It also emphasizes the importance of biblical authority, the priesthood of all believers, and the separation of church and state.
The founder of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference was the late Clarence E. Macartney, who was its first general superintendent. Macartney was a controversial figure, and his teachings have been criticized by some other conservative Christian denominations.
However, the CCCC remains a major force in the conservative Christian movement, and it continues to grow and expand its reach.
Here are some of the key beliefs of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference:
- The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
- There is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of the virgin Mary, and is fully God and fully man.
- He died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead on the third day.
- He ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
- He will return to earth one day to judge the living and the dead.
- Salvation is by grace through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
- Repentance and baptism are necessary for salvation.
- The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity and is present in the lives of believers.
- The church is the body of Christ and is made up of all believers.
- The second coming of Christ is imminent.
- The resurrection of the dead and the final judgment will take place.
