It is a sincere pleasure to welcome you to Community Bible Church today. I trust that you will learn more about the church as a means to know Christ and the power of His resurrection in your everyday life. You have something to offer the Lord here in this church. You are a part of a royal priesthood and I look forward to getting to know you and your heart to see God do amazing things among us.
“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth” John 17:17. As Jesus was speaking to the Father, He prayed for His disciples and those who would become the church. He gave us a pattern for sanctification: Lives based upon truth. God’s word is truth.
Community: CBC is a family of believers that loves one another, prays for one another and carries one another’s burdens. As a church we understand the importance of keeping the unity of the spirit and the bond of peace. We truly do long to be together with the affection of Christ Jesus. CBC is a place to laugh, to cry and to enjoy the incredible abundant life that Christ desires for each of us. This truly is a hospitable place where all are welcome. This community of faith is growing both in depth and in number. God has blessed the church with a generation of energetic young people that will carry on the cause of Christ for decades to come.
Bible: The ministry of CBC recognizes the importance of the Word of God. God’s Word is relevant, living, active and sharper than a double-edged sword. God’s Word is inspired and authoritative. The ministry of CBC preaches Christ and Him crucified. The Word of God is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. Here at CBC, the gospel, or the incredible good news of God’s grace is the power of God.
Church: CBC exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus who went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people. As a church we prepare ourselves to be both people of faith and people of action. We seek to not only be hearers of God’s Word but doers as well. With the authority of God’s Word, we serve this community and make the gospel known around the world. The ministry of CBC is very intentional and strategic about making disciples of all nations.
