OUR MISSION

Magnifying Jesus Christ by making disciples who advance the mission of God among all people.

CORE CONVICTIONS

Worship

True identity is always rooted in what we worship. We have been created to worship, magnify, and glorify God revealed in Christ. We want our lives to magnify Jesus Christ both individually and corporately, offering our lives as a living sacrifice to the glory of God. We want our lives to advertise that we love Jesus more than anything else.

Pray

God loves to be asked and He loves for us to talk to Him in prayer. Prayer is not a small thing. Prayer is not a marginal thing. Prayer is not some inconsequential or incidental thing in the Christian life. The reality at the center of the universe is God created man and woman in His image. We were created to display God’s glory through His image in us. And the way God delights to display His glory in our lives is through dependent, desperate prayer. As a means of grace, prayer puts us in the path of God’s grace and His working in the world and in our lives, and so we will devote ourselves to prayer.

Proclaim

Proclaim the gospel with our words and our lives. Speak God’s Word in love. Share God’s Word in deed. Teach God’s Word faithfully.

Belong

The gospel promises us that when we surrender to live life as a disciple of Jesus by faith, we experience community with God and with other believers in Jesus Christ. The promise of the gospel is the promise of new creation and new life within a new community. What we find in Jesus is that we finally discover the sense of purpose and belonging we have been longing for. In Jesus, we are safe, known, and loved, now and forevermore.

Serve

A heart captured and captivated by the gospel understands that we exist for God and others. We believe we are each a vital vein in the body of Christ, carrying to others what they need from God. Jesus died to purchase for each of us the strength and compassion to share our lives, gifts, time, and resources for God’s glory, so that others might be made whole in Christ and discover the fullness of joy in relationship with their Creator.

Multiply

God’s mission in the world is to advance the kingdom of God among all people. We want to live as disciple-making disciples of Jesus Christ. We are seeking to raise up people so radically committed to the gospel that they live to multiply the world-impacting disciple-makers by leveraging their careers, families, hobbies, finances, and talents to make much of Jesus where He is not now treasured, adored, and worshiped.

CBC is a member of the Evangelical Free Church of America, therefore, we hold to the following statement of faith as the doctrinal position of our church.

STATEMENTS OF FAITH

God

We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in a loving unity of three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Having limitless knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem a people for Himself and to make all things new for His own glory.

The Bible

We believe that God has spoken in the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, through the words of human authors. As the verbally inspired Word of God, the Bible is without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for salvation, and the ultimate authority by which every realm of human knowledge and endeavor should be judged. Therefore, it is to be believed in all that it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires, and trusted in all that it promises.

The Human Condition

We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image, but they sinned when tempted by Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated from God, and under His wrath. Only through God’s saving work in Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, one Person in two natures. Jesus-Israel’s promised Messiah-was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest and Advocate.
