Mission statement

Christian Community Foundation exists to serve Mid-South donors and ministries to facilitate the building of God's kingdom in our community and throughout the world. Our mission is to encourage philanthropy and increase giving. We seek transformation of the city of Memphis through churches and ministries that combine Christian faith and Christian action.

Statement of faith

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the divine Word of God, the final and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. The Scriptures are infallible, that is without error.

God reveals himself as the living and true God, Creator of all things, perfect in love and righteous in all His ways. This one God exists eternally as a Trinity of persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Humankind was created in the image of God that he might have fellowship with Him. Being estranged from God by disobedience, humankind is incapable of a right relationship to God apart from God's grace.

The only Mediator between God and humankind is Jesus Christ our Lord, God's eternal Son, who as a man shared and fulfilled our humanity in a life of perfect obedience.

By His death in our place, Jesus revealed the divine love and upheld divine justice, removing our guilt and reconciling us to God. Having risen bodily from the dead and ascended into Heaven, He rules as Lord over all and intercedes for us as our great High Priest.

The Holy Spirit through the proclamation of the Gospel renews our hearts, persuading us to repent of our sins and confess Jesus as Lord. By the same Spirit we are led to trust in divine mercy, whereby we are forgiven all our sins, justified by faith through the merit of Christ our Savior, adopted in God's family as His children and enabled us to live in the world that people may see our good works and glorify our Father who is in heaven.

God by His work and Spirit calls sinful men and women into the fellowship of Christ's body. Thus He creates the one holy, catholic and apostolic church, united in the bonds of love, endowed with gifts of the Spirit and summoned by Christ to preach the Gospel and to administer the sacraments, to relieve human need and to strive for social justice.

God's redemptive purpose will be consummated by the return of Christ to raise the dead, judge all humankind and establish His glorious kingdom. Those who are apart from Christ shall be eternally separated from God's presence, but the righteous shall live and reign with Him forever.

Since our founding in 1992, our donors have strategically given nearly $500 million through the Foundation. Of this amount, almost 75 percent stayed in Memphis and more than 75 percent went to Christian ministries serving primarily the educational and other needs of youth and families.
