WHAT WE BELIEVE
1. In one God, who is eternal, all-powerful and absolutely Holy, who has revealed Himself to man as existing in three distinguishable expressions: the Father, the Son – Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
2. That the Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments is God’s eternal, inspired, infallible Word in its entirety…
FIVE CORE FREEDOMS
From the very beginning, our Free Methodist denomination has been championing the word: freedom.
There are five essential freedoms that define us, and are born out of our commitment to equality and our belief in the freedom that Christ gives to all. We call this a theology of love…
DOCTRINE / THEOLOGY
The doctrine or theology of the Free Methodist Church is often referred to as “via media” or the middle way.
What we believe, therefore, is not easily classified as theologically “conservative” or “liberal” but instead seeks to honor four main sources of theology (also called the Wesleyan Quadrilateral)…

They work hard as a family on creating shared moments, which bring them closer together and point toward God’s hand in the midst of life.LEARN ABOUT OUR LEADERSHIP TEAM
The local church is God’s plan for family and community, and Cucamonga Christian Fellowship (CCF) is a multi-generational, multi-cultural church for all ages and stages of life.
CCF began in October 1983, with 9 adults and 3 children meeting together in a living room in Rancho Cucamonga. In the 30+ years since that day, CCF has consistently grown and been a place from which many church plants were birthed, missionaries sent out, and projects created with the intent of ministering to the poor and needy of our community.
God created the church to be His witness of love to the world and in addition to being a place for people to connect, at CCF we are committed to social justice both locally and globally.
Through the outworking of our vision to be “a place to connect,” our leadership have positioned CCF as a church that is known for making a difference in our city, our community and our world.
Locally, we host a weekly free-food program for the community. Throughout the year, we look for ways to partner with our local community to bring practical hope to people. Globally, we invest in partnerships with organizations who are making a difference around the world.
Our deepest desire is that that you will not only find a place to connect at CCF, but your experience will inspire you to help others to do the same.
Free Methodists are first and foremost a Kingdom people. Yet throughout church history God has raised up distinct movements like ours to enrich the larger body of Christ.
Building on the legacies of John Wesley and B.T. Roberts, but always discerning where God is moving today, our identity is shaped by values that are both historical and aspirational.
Of the many values we hold dear, these five lie at the heart of our movement. We view them as a whole, each one bringing necessary balance to the others.
- Life-Giving Holiness
- Love-Driven Justice
- Christ-Compelled Multiplication
- Cross-Cultural Collaboration
- God-Given Revelation
We call this The Free Methodist Way.
