Churches in the Community





Christ Community Christian Church




Most parishioners are familiar with the more common religious denominations including Baptist, Pentecostal-Holiness, and Methodist.  In recent times, churches are appearing that are non-denominational.


Non-denominational in Christian circles may have a couple of common uses, ie, 1) a church related activity such as a worship service that is tailored to be acceptable to all denominations, 2) an association of churches that does not hold to a particular historical creed, and 3) a church without a denominational affiliation.  The latter is most common.


Although a church may consider itself non-denominational many of its practices and ceremonies are similar to those of traditional denominations.  In most instances, it's because their pastors and leadership have a history or receive their ordination in those denominations.
