About CCM and our Colleges

Christian Community Ministries Ltd (CCM) operates colleges located in Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia, in regional and metropolitan areas. Our Colleges enrol children of those parents who choose for their children and themselves to participate in a Christ-centred educational community in the Christian faith tradition of the College, including as outlined in the CCM Statement of Faith. Parents seeking enrolment for their children undertake to support the College in its creation of a community of faith, which will both nurture and support Christians in their faith and reveal the gospel of Christ to those who do not yet hold that faith.

Our Christian faith is at the core of who we are. Our schools and early education centres adhere to the historic doctrines of evangelical Christianity and believe the Bible as originally given by God is divinely inspired, infallible, and entirely trustworthy, and is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. Employment candidates are required to be a person of active Christian faith who will support the vision, mission and values of CCM and the College, including our Statement of Faith.
