Here at CVCC we strive to structure our ministries and services around the following seven Core Principles. Each principle is based on Biblical teaching and in place to guide and instruct us as we work to build and nurture the body of Christ in Hartford and beyond.

  1. God-Centered: all things were created by God, through God, and for God.
  2. Christ-Exalting: God (the Father) has revealed Himself fully in His Son Jesus Christ.
  3. Gospel-Driven: Christ’s Glory is clearly seen in the Gospel which is our motivation for holiness.
  4. Mission-Minded: Christ entrusted His people with the Gospel to make disciples of all nations.
  5. Family-Oriented: the role of parents is fundamental to the health of our church.
  6. Church-Based: the church (local and univeral) is the only ordained institution by our Lord and Savior.
  7. Expository Preaching: Christ’s teaching as revealed in the Bible is how the church is built up.
