I’m New Here

Welcome to Community! We are thrilled you’ve come to worship with us! We hope you feel at home in this place we call the church. But The Church is so much more! It’s the whole body of believers that we connect with when we gather together in His name. Below you’ll find a brief overview of what it’s like to do life here at Community Church.

What to Expect

As you walk into Community Church, you will notice casual and comfortable dress, free coffee and light snacks, vibrant worship, applicable and relevant teaching, and many opportunities to connect to the people around you. Our desire is to love people where they are, create space for life change, serve where needs are met, speak truth with grace.

Get Connected

At Community Church we believe that every follower of Jesus is also constantly learning. That’s why we hope you’ll connect with a short-term small group that speaks to a need you currently have. We offer a variety of options throughout the year.


As we live out our mission, stand on our values, and remain dependent on God, our individual lives, together as God’s people, and Mt Carmel will see more positive change by 2020 than it has in the past 20 years combined.



Basically, we are a Christ-centered, bible teaching, missional church. Being Christ-centered means that everything that we believe and do is about Jesus. Being Bible-teaching means that the Bible is our ultimate authority on all matters of faith and life, and we boldly preach the Bible every week. Being missional means that our church isn’t defined by our programs, but by the influence we have in the city through relationships with people who do not yet know Jesus. We are also Church of God Anderson, IN affiliated. To find out more about our beliefs or the Church of God movement check out the About Page
We gather a variety of times through-out the week. Our main services are:

We are pretty casual we wear everything from suits to t-shirt, jeans and flip flops (sometimes even in the winter). As long as you have clothes on you’re good.
Of course! We love kids! On Sunday mornings we have nursery for birth to 2 years old called Little Ones. We also have Children’s church for 2 yrs – kindergarten.

Our Wednesday night program Champions with Christ (CWC) meets Wednesdays from 6:15-7:30pm. Champions with Christ is a place kids come to church to have a good time, learn about the Word of God and worship Him through music and song. Children are split into age groups for their lesson and game time, but all worship and sing together.

No. baptism is the first step in the life of a disciple. When a person accepts Jesus as Savior, it is
expected that the person will take the first step of following Jesus in baptism; however,
believers who have been baptized in another church/denomination will not need to be rebaptized
in our churches. We would also like to encourage anyone that was baptized as an
infant to appreciate their parents acting on faith and to witness to their own decision by taking
part in a public baptism.
Yes. We believe that, in a broader sense, all healing is divine. We encourage consultation with
medical professionals in matters of physical health and with other professionals in matters of
emotional and relational problems. We believe that professionals can be used by God to bring
health to ill and injured persons.

In addition to the healing that comes through natural processes and the informed use of
medication and surgery, we believe that at times God directly intervenes in the life of individuals
to initiate and complete healing. We put into practice James’ instructions to the young church:
“Is any of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with
oil in the name of the Lord” (James 5:14).

We believe Jesus is coming again, but have no idea about the date and time (Matthew 24:36;
Mark 13:32-37). We emphasize that when Jesus comes to receive His bride, the church, all
things of this world will end, and those who believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior will go with Him
to live eternally. We believe that the Kingdom of God is a present reality, launched by Jesus
when He came to earth (Matthew 3:2; 4:17; 10:7; Luke 17:20-26) and His kingdom is in the
hearts of men and women who recognize and serve Him as King.

Great study has been undertaken by many pre-millennial scholars and the optimism of the postmillennial
cannot be denied; however, we are a-millennial, meaning that in our study of the
Bible, we do not agree with those who would seek to teach about an earthly reign of Christ in a
governmental or military sense. Scriptures speak of last things often in figurative language
(Revelation 20) and we believe they often refer to spiritual rather than temporal realities. The
teachings that give special attention to repeatedly setting dates for the expected return of
Christ, the observation of things as an indication of the imminent appearance of Christ, and to
identifying contemporary historical people as embodiments of the anti-Christ are not in our
understanding of Scripture. Though it does not exclude us from identifying with these other
streams of the faith as brothers and sisters, we agree to disagree and seek to explore other ways
to experience and express our unity in Christ.

We work and pray for Christ’s return (Revelation 22:20-21). We wholeheartedly agree that we
are to be involved in God’s redemptive plan-but feel that sharing the gospel is greater than
speculating about the nature and timing of last things. With that being said, within the variety of
Church of God congregations you will find those that accept a range of opinions and beliefs on
last things.
