“Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
and don't lean on your own understanding. In all things acknowledge him, and he
shall direct your way.
[Proverbs 3:5, 6]”

“For God so loved the world, that he gave
his only begotten Son, that whosoever
believeth in him should not perish, but
have everlasting life (Bible 3:16).”

“Even though I walk through the valley
of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,
for you are with me; your rod and
your staff, they comfort me”

“Let the morning bring me word of your
unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul (Psalm 143:8).”

What We Believe

Cremation for Christians is widely accepted among all Christian denominations. Christians have a strong belief in the afterlife and much of our lives are directed at achieving eternal peace in Heaven. We believe that Jesus was the son of God and came to earth to teach through his actions and lessons. Each Christian denomination has its own emphasis and interpretation of the Bible. Although they each hold slightly different beliefs, they follow the same principles and share similar funeral rituals.

Why We Believe

Christian funeral services focus mainly on the deceased entry into Heaven and God's ability to give the grieving strength to cope with their recent loss. According to the New Testament, Jesus sacrificed himself to his enemies and was crucified. This sacrifice was made to pay for the sins of all mankind. A true believer in Jesus and the Christian faith will be forgiven for sins as a result of Jesus' sacrifice and gain eternal life in Heaven. Christian funeral services serve the same purpose: to pray for the soul of the deceased, as well as to offer comfort and support to the bereaved.

THOUGHTFUL

Christianity widely accepts cremation. Joining CCS is a gift that will ease the burden of decision making and provide peace of mind for both you and your family. You may consider a pre-payment option in order to spare your family the financial burden of your final arrangements. The funds are placed in a trust, insurance policy or an annuity and remain there until the death occurs.

PLANNING

Pre-planning your Christian funeral or memorial service is one of the best ways to help your family during their difficult time of grief and loss. By leaving specific information regarding your own personal desires for your Christian funeral, burial or cremation, you will greatly ease your family's burden of making decisions by having to try and guess what arrangements you would have wanted.



Personal Decisions

Death is such an odious eventuality that many people neglect to do much planning for the disposal of their body. How one arranges a funeral for a loved one (or for himself) is a very personal matter. No one should presume to lay down rigid regulations, to which all others are expected to conform. The Scriptures do not dictate this matter. We often make rash, sometimes unwise judgments. And we live with the consequences of these decisions for years. Preplanning affords you the opportunity to ensure that your wishes are fulfilled.
