What we want to be known for...
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and therefore is completely true (inerrant) and that the Bible is to be interpreted in the normal fashion as the truth. Because it is God’s Word and our supreme and final authority the Bible affects every part of our faith including the doctrines of God (Trinity), Jesus Christ (God and Savior), the Holy Spirit (God and Comforter), man (both inner and outer), sin (all have sinned), salvation (by grace through faith alone), the church (the body of Christ), angels (both good and evil), and the end times (eternal judgment for unbelievers, eternal life for believers).
Community Bible Church is a group of genuine believers of Jesus Christ whose goal is to love everyone He brings in our path and bring glory to our Great God. CBC is an independent church which fellowships with the IFCA International. You are invited to come, hoping that you find CBC as a place of spiritual refreshment, loving encouragement and biblical challenge.
"TO KNOW HIM AND MAKE HIM KNOWN"
Making life-long disciples of Jesus Christ.
We'd love for you to join us for Sunday morning service at 10:15am!
