"name": " Church of Christ Kakkanad ",
This is a congregation of people who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God, who is God himself, came into this world as a man to take upon himself the sins of all mankind and it’s punishment on the cross. This congregation started meeting for worship in English in 2009 at Mavelipuram Colony, Kakkanad, Kochi in Church of Christ Building.
We strive to follow the pattern of the New Testament church. We speak where the Bible speaks and we are silent where the Bible is silent. We follow the God-given pattern of weekly communion and the immersion (baptism in water) of believers for the forgiveness of sins and to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. We believe God loves us, made us, and doesn’t want empty religion, but rather a loving relationship with us all. We teach that sin is when you don’t follow God’s plan(will) for your life, which will separate You from God eternally (Hell). But those who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, are baptized in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit and live for Him , receive forgiveness of their sins and the gift of eternal life with Him through God’s grace.
The Sunday Service begins with the ‘Praise and Worship‘ session, followed by intercessory prayer, Holy Spirit inspired message, communion , announcements, closing prayer and benediction.The church partners with KCM ( Kerala Christian Mission) in various mission activities.
Church of Christ @ Kakkanad is all about knowing God through His Word. We believe the Bible is God’s Word, literally; His message to His people about His plan for their lives. The Bible is as relevant today as it was when it was first written and gives us direction, guidance, and wisdom for living life to its fullest. Sermons on Sunday mornings dig deep into the meaning of God’s Word and how we can put it into practical use in our everyday lives.
