We believe God is on a mission to give people a full life, as a gift. Our mission is to help you discover that life–more and more each day, wherever your story starts.
It’s a beautiful life of discovery.
Here are the things we’re passionate about
We are for the one who’s not here yet.
We create community that becomes family.
We share the story of life, and life to the full.
We give generously to care for people’s lives.
We build a culture of celebration that reflects heaven.
Cape Cod Church was founded in 1992 by a young couple with a dream: to create a church that non-church people loved. Pastor Ben and Tammy Feldott held the first service in their apartment living room, and only two people attended (hint: themselves). Soon after, they began meeting in a rented plumbing building in Falmouth, which was not exactly the dream but is now cherished in Cape Cod Church history. The church grew to about 30 people, and some of our members today can still recall those early days.
In 1997, Cape Cod Church was able to find one bank that believed in them and scrape together enough volunteer labor to build a home of its own. The new building on Teaticket Highway drew curiosity, and soon the church began to grow. As things changed, Cape Cod Church continued to do what it had always done: create a welcoming space for everyone. Eventually, the church community outgrew that building too, and in 2011 the people of Cape Cod Church committed by faith to build a home that would not only house their community, but benefit the wider community. Over the course of three years, hundreds of people gave sacrificially to make it happen. In 2014, Cape Cod Church celebrated its first Easter at its new home on Route 151. Since then, Cape Cod Church has grown to a community of more than 2,000 people.
A lot has changed in 30 years. But the essentials remain the same: we are still passionate about Jesus, still passionate about creating a space where everyone can explore Him. We want to be a church where you can safely invite your friends. We believe God offers us a full life, as a gift. What should get in the way of that?
At Cape Cod Church, you can belong well before you believe:
you’re still family to us.
We believe that the Bible was written by people who were supernaturally inspired; that it reveals ultimate truth and is without error; and therefore is, and shall remain to the end of the time, the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to humanity; the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be judged.
We believe that there is one living and true God, the maker and supreme ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness and love and worthy of all possible honor, confidence and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious purposes in the great work of redemption.
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly by grace, through the mediation of the Son of God, who by direction of the Father freely took upon Himself our (human) nature, yet without sin; honored God’s law by His personal obedience, and by His death made a full and vicarious atonement for our sins; that His atonement was the voluntary substitution of Himself in the sinner’s place, the just dying for the unjust; Christ the Lord bearing our sins in His own body on the cross; then, having risen from the dead, now sits enthroned in heaven, uniting in His wonderful person perfect love and perfect holiness. He is in every way qualified to be a suitable, compassionate and all-sufficient Savior.
We believe that in order to be saved, sinners must accept the free gift of God to be made new; that the new birth is a new creation in Christ Jesus; that it is instantaneous and not a process; that in the new birth the one dead in sin is made a partaker of the divine nature and receives eternal life, the freegift of God; that the new creation is brought about in a manner above our comprehension, not by culture, not by character, nor by the will of man, but wholly and solely by the power of the Holy Spirit in connection with divine truth, so as to secure our voluntary obedience to the gospel; that its proper evidence appears in the holy fruit of repentance and faith and newness of life.
We believe in God’s electing grace; that the blessings of salvation are made free to all by the Gospel; that it is the immediate duty of all to accept them by a willing, penitent and obedient faith; and that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner on earth but his or her voluntary rejection of the Gospel, and that such rejection keeps him or her in condemnation and leads to eternal separation from God.
We believe that repentance and faith are solemn obligations of the believer in Christ, and also that they are abilities given to us by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, being deeply convicted of our guilt, condemnation and helplessness apart from Jesus, we repent and turn to God with honest and heartfelt contrition, confession, and requests for mercy; at the same time joyfully receiving Jesus Christ and openly confessing Him as our only and all-sufficient Savior, and Lord of our lives.
We believe that the great gospel blessing which Christ provides to those who believe in Him is justification; that justification includes the pardoning of all sin and the gift of eternal life based on the inherited righteousness of Christ which we receive at salvation; that justification is not given to us because of any good works that we have done or will do, but solely through our faith and trust in the atoning power of Jesus’ sacrifice.
