Christ Community Church (CCC) was founded in 1920 by Pastor T.T. Noble. Following Pastor Noble’s experience at Azusa Street, he came to Murphysboro and started a tent revival. In the aftermath of that Pentecostal “tent revival” a church was born.The church was part of a Pentecostal denomination throughout most of its early history until it officially became “non-denominational” in 1969 under the leadership of Pastor Paul Worley. Since that time the church has become home to people from many denominational backgrounds.
In keeping with its history, the church maintains a strong emphasis on the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer and is committed to helping people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
In 1977, the church founded Murphysboro Christian Academy, a K-8th grade private school which remains a thriving ministry to this day. The school is located on the corner of 17th and Grace Street in Murphysboro.
In 2006, the church moved to its present location on 27 acres north of Murphysboro. The new location on the highway has helped CCC to become a regional church with its prime location reaching out to all of Southern Illinois.
