CBC seeks to function as a Biblical New Testament Church. The New Testament Church was led by men who were “faithful” and were “qualified” to lead God’s people, (I Timothy 3:8-ff, Titus 1:5-ff and Ephesians 4;11-ff).
CBC functions with a Pastor, Elders and Deacons! These men are responsible to God, “to shepherd the flock” and “...to equip the saints for the work of ministry” and to “serve one another”.
Every member of the Church is encouraged to discover the gifts given to them by the Holy Spirit, I Cor. 12-14; Eph. 4 and Romans 12. Utilizing each gift is vital for the entire “building up” of the body to spiritual maturity! So, since every gift is vital, it is our desire to see those wonderful gifts displayed through all the family of CBC! Those gifts displayed in the body include: showing mercy, exhortation, encouragement, teaching, evangelizing, helps, giving, etc.
