We are Compass
ONE CHURCH, TWO LOCATIONS
We are a church in Arizona that follows Jesus Christ. We do this by Loving God, Loving People, and Sharing Jesus with our community locally and around the world.
Leading people to find and follow Jesus!
Multiplying disciples in relational environments.
There is one God existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is the Creator of all things; He knows everything; is everywhere present; He is just; loving; and full of grace. He can be sufficiently known only through Jesus Christ.
Jesus is fully human and fully divine existing eternally, fully equal with the Father. He was begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He has proven Himself to be the Son of God by His deeds, fulfillment of prophecy, crucifixion and bodily resurrection.
Those who believe in Jesus Christ as God’s Son and our Savior; who repents of their sins and continually make Jesus the Lord of their lives; who confesses Jesus as Lord; and who are baptized by immersion; and have accepted the gracious gift of salvation by faith. Those who follow this Biblical plan can have assurance of this salvation.
Compass Christian Church (formerly Chandler Christian Church) is a non-denominational fellowship of believers who have no creed but Christ, no book but the Bible, and wear no name but Christian. We believe that Christ is the Head of His Church, and therefore every Christian is a part of His body. We do not believe that we are the only Christians, but earnestly strive to be Christians only. We seek to speak where the Bible speaks, and remain silent where the Bible is silent. We take the Bible, and the Bible alone, as our only rule of faith and practice. The original Church that we read about in the Bible was a church where salvation made you a member, so Compass Christian Church follows that pattern. We refuse to impose upon people more than the Word of God asks a Christian to be, nor require less than the Word states. Therefore, membership here requires that one accept the gracious gift of salvation by faith, which is belief in Jesus as the Son of God, repenting of sin, confessing Jesus as Lord, and being baptized by immersion. To make sure that these principal teachings are understood we have found it beneficial for anyone choosing to be a part of Compass Christian Church to complete our Compass Connect class.
The Second Coming
The coming of Christ for His Church can occur at any time and will occur at some time. The Scripture teaches that Jesus will descend from heaven; that all Christians, dead and alive, will be raised to eternal life; and all non-believers will be judged or condemned to eternal punishment in hell.
The Christian life by its very nature is to be distinct from the world. Because of this, each believer is set apart (sanctified) by God for His purposes. The process of sanctification is carried out through prayer, reading the Bible, witnessing and fellowship. Each believer has been given a spiritual gift or gifts to be used in serving others.
Marriage & Morality
Marriage is an honorable creation of God for the purpose of procreation and completion. Biblical marriage is a covenant and legally recognized relationship solely between one man and one woman. Therefore, sexual intimacy is biblically acceptable and a privilege between a man and woman in the union of marriage.
