Who We Are
Wexford Christian Community Church is a church that is committed to following the Lord Jesus Christ and His teachings. The Church started out as a fellowship in 1990 and after moving to various locations we finally settled in our new church building in June 2009.
WxCCC has a strong commitment to its members and the community, and we believe in Christian values for our families. The leadership of WxCCC strongly believe in accountability as a scriptural principle and as such, we are a member of the Christian Churches Ireland (CCI) churches. This consequently means that we are accountable to the National Council of the CCI. The CCI currently has more than thirty churches registered as members in Ireland and this provides us with relationship support with similar churches.
WxCCC endeavours to reach out to the community to build relationships. We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is an essential message to be shared with the community. We also place great importance on our family type relationships with each other in the church and to be there for one another in times of difficulty. We are a church of different languages and cultures and we are blessed by the diversity of people who attend and also contribute to serving one another.
The vision of WxCCC is to reach out to the community with the love of Jesus Christ and the good news of the Gospel. We are committed to each other in the unity of the Holy Spirit and we aim to be a church that reflects the true Gospel and the love of Christ.
We value people, the teaching and the daily application of scriptures in the lives of believers. We also aim to serve each other in the true meaning of the scriptures and equip Gods people to serve Him in whatever He calls them to. We further believe in the power of the Gospel to reach and transform a community that is lost without it, and we aim to share that message in love with those who will listen.

Statement of Faith – Wexford Christian Community Church
Word of God
We believe the bible to be the inspired Word of God. We accept it in its entirety as the Word of God from the original manuscripts. We believe it is holy, inspired, infallible and our source of guidance, light and truth. (2 Timothy 3:16).
The Person of God
We believe in one God, manifested in the Trinity as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, eternal in existence. We believe God to be the Creator of all things and the Author of eternal salvation.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the only all-sufficient Saviour. We believe Jesus Christ to be God manifested in the flesh, Son of God and Son of man. We believe Him to be the Word made flesh (Jn 1:14; Jn 1:1-3). We believe in the virgin birth of Jesus, His death on the cross for all mankind and His bodily resurrection. We also believe in His ascension into heaven and His high-priestly ministry.
We believe in His promised physical return to this earth to receive those, living and dead, who have repented of their sin and accepted Him as their Saviour.
We acknowledge the Holy Spirit as Comforter, Divine Agent of regeneration, the Revealer of Christ and His redemptive work at the cross. We believe that the Holy Spirit is the distributor of gifts and grace upon God’s church.
We believe that Salvation is by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8). Salvation is a free gift from God apart from works (Eph.2:9; Romans 11:6) which requires repentance, meaning a change of mind and turning to God. Salvation is through personal faith (Eph.2:8) in the Lord Jesus Christ alone (Acts 4:12). It is by ‘believing’ only on the Lord Jesus Christ that we are saved. (Acts 16:30-31).
The Two Ordinances
We believe that Jesus established and gave two ordinances to the church. These are water baptism and the Lord’s supper, which are to be observed according to the instruction of scripture.
We believe in water baptism by full emersion of the believer in water, identifying with Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. (Romans 6:1-6; Acts 2:38).
We believe that the Lord’s supper is a means of fellowship in the Spiritual body of Christ. We also believe that the Lord’s supper is a means whereby we remember Christ’s sacrifice at the Cross until He returns. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
Baptism of the Holy Spirit
We believe in the infilling of the Holy Spirit subsequent to the New Birth, with evidence of speaking in other tongues. We also believe that this infilling is an empowerment for the believer to witness. (Acts 1:8; 10:44-46; Romans 5:5).
The Universal Church
We believe that every born-again believer is a member of the Body of Christ, His church. (Col.1:8; Eph.1:20-23; 1 Cor. 12:12-13; Eph.4:11-16). We therefore believe that the local church is part of the universal church and is placed by God to carry out His work where it is planted.
We believe that divine healing is a part of God’s provision for mankind and that through the gift of healing, the laying on of hands, the anointing with oil, or by simple faith alone, comes physical healing and deliverance. (Isaiah 53:5; 1 Peter 2:24; Mark 16:17-18).
We recognise that the church has an obligation to spread the gospel of good news to those who do not know Christ. (Acts 11:8; Matt.28:18-20; Matt.3:8-10). We believe that the ‘good news’ of the Gospel is a message of love that is to be shared out of the love of Jesus Christ.
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ
We believe in the promised physical and personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the events described in the following scriptures. (Acts 1:11; 1 Thess.4:16-17; Titus 2:12-14; 2 Thess.1:7-10).
Living a Christ-Like Life
We believe that ALL Christians are called to a life of holiness and separation from sin in order that they should live righteously with God’s grace. (James 4:4; Romans 12:1-2; 1 John 2:15-17).
The Laying on of Hands
We believe in the laying on of hands as described in the New Testament, which is a ministry of the Holy Spirit. This includes the dedication of babies, sending out ministers (Acts 13:3) for healing of the sick, baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the reception of spiritual gifts.
Jesus’ Gifts to the Church
We believe that Jesus gave five gifts to the church. These are Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers for the equipping of the Church. (Eph.4:11).
Marriage is defined to be a living example of the relationship between Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:31-32). Marriage is a holy sacrament of the church defined as being between one naturally born man and one naturally born woman. Therefore, as a church, and based upon scripture, we do not recognize common-law or same-sex marriage (Genesis 2:18-24; Matthew 19:4-6, Hebrews 13:4).
