About

We, the members of “The Christian Crew”, stand united in our effort to provide the online gaming community with a clean environment, of fellowship and exciting game play. Our members will conduct themselves with integrity and decency, reflecting true Christian Character, in order that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ might be honored and glorified. We are committed to the ministry and growth of our community for the Kingdom of God, presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the fundamental truth of God. Finally, we pledge to never forget that we are Christians first, and fellow gamers second.

We are Christian Crew Gaming — a faith based gaming community founded in 2003. Since our beginning we have grown into becoming one of the largest online Christian gaming communities globally. Our mission is to provide a safe and family-friendly gaming community where anyone is welcome to join and participate. Our desire is to be ambassadors of Christ in the area of online gaming, being examples and sharing the Good News in the hopes of reaching the lost. Our members pledge to be Christians first and gamers second so that our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, would be honored and glorified.

We hold ourselves accountable to be a light in the darkness, a beacon in the great sea of the internet, a caring place for those uncared for. The Christian Crew is different from the standard Christian presence on the web because we understand the power of the medium itself. We use social media, voip, video, and much more to get Christ’s message out there, as well as to give our members the greatest fellowship capabilities they can find to interact with each other. We believe all of our assets should be family friendly, clean and respectful, and uplifting as possible.

We have a core of leaders known as the Council. We have our regular believer members, as well as ACC Members. (Allies of the Christian Crew) ACC members can be non-believers who simply love the idea of gaming in an environment kept free from crass language, pornography, and sexual innuendo. Yes, some ACC members are atheists! We hope one day to help them become believers!

We are unique for many reasons, but some of the main ones are that we have evolved as gaming and the internet itself have evolved, to keep up with the changing moods of our members. We started as a clan primarily centered around the game Counter-Strike, but we have grown far beyond those initial constraints. We now have members who play many different games in many different genres…Married couples who play, families with children who play, mom housewives who play, and more! We are active in the streaming world, on youtube, twitter, facebook, have some serious professionals maintaining our servers and website, doing our graphics, and product design, and more. We have been around for 13 years, and God Willing, we will have 13 more!


What We Believe

  • We believe that there is only one God, who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and in 7 days created the heavens and the earth (I John 5:7; Matthew 28:19-20; Genesis 1:29-2:25).
  • We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God; it is perfect, true, and God-breathed. The Bible is the final authority for faith and life (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:20-21; II Peter 3:15-16; Matthew 5:18).
  • We believe that man was created in the image of God. But by his voluntary sin, fell from his high and holy state; that as a result the human race was plunged into condemnation and death, so that now all human beings are born with a sinful nature; and that all become willful sinners in thought, word, and deed and are without excuse before God (Genesis 1:26-27; Genesis 3:1-22; Romans 5:10-19; Psalm 51:5).
  • We believe that because of man’s sin, God sent His only son, Jesus Christ, to earth and was crucified on the cross, died, and on the third day rose again and ascended into heaven where he sits at the right hand of the Father (John 3:16; Mark 15:33-37; Mark 16:1-8; Mark 16:19-20).
  • We believe that the salvation of sinners is by the grace through faith in the blood sacrifice, death, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ; that all who receive Him are born again by the Holy Spirit and become children of God; that no rite, ceremony, or work can avail one whit for the sinner’s salvation or make the believer’s salvation more secure; that Christ is the only and all sufficient Savior, and He will never leave those He saves (Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5-7; John 3:3; John 5:24; John 1:12; Romans 10:9-13; Acts 16:31; Acts 4:12; II Timothy 1:12; John 10:28-29; Romans 8:35-39; Philippians 1:6).

Events

Here at Christian Crew Gaming we have a team of Event Coordinators who put together monthly free-to-play game nights, we host Bible Studies every Thursday night, and we have CC Meetings every other Saturday evening.  On top of that, some of our game divisions have weekly game nights, where we get everyone we can who plays that game to play together!

Username & Username Changes

Members are allowed only one name change. This is to minimize the amount of confusion that could be caused from people constantly changing their names. If you wish to change your name, post a new thread on the forums stating the new username you wish to use, and why. Members are not allowed to change their names while connected to a server. Variations may be made; however, your “usual” name must be visible.

Tags

Only those who have have been posted in the New CC Members section and/or received email confirmation may wear the CC/ACC tags.

Members are required to wear the CC tags when in The FISH servers.

Leaving

You may leave CC at any time. If you wish to leave CC either PM a Council Member or post a new thread on the forums and state the reason why you’re leaving. If you’re leaving because of a problem within CC please talk privately with a Council Member rather then post the problem in the forums.

Please keep in mind that any CC member leaving, whether it be on good or bad terms, receives a minimum 2 week ban from the game servers. If you cause problems during this time this length may be extended.
