Our Genesis

The charter partners of the Cordova Community Church were people dedicated to non-denominational Christianity. We have been from our origin a people who seek unity and fellowship based upon the core teachings of the Bible. The founders of this church sought to fulfill the spirit, teachings, and mission of the early days of Christianity.
 
This church is non-denominational, self-governed and thus does not answer to any church governing body. We answer only to God and his Son, Jesus Christ, who is the head of the Church.
 
In the fall of 1997, God used Gary Ealy and John Mark Hicks to bring together a group of Christians to meet and pray about beginning the Cordova Community Church. As a result, an initial “Cell Group” began to meet.
 
On Easter Sunday of 1998, with additional cell groups and a ministry staff in place, this community “went public” and began to meet on Sunday mornings.
 
In 2002, Cordova Community Church entered into a partnership with Bert Ferguson Community Center and the City of Memphis, allowing us to use the facility for Sunday morning worship and Bible classes as well many special events. We cooperate with BFCC to provide services and programs to our community, providing many opportunities to build relationships. We count this partnership as a great blessing and want to continue calling BFCC “home”.
