Follow Jesus, Make Disciples.
Let's not make things unnecessarily complicated - we want our pursuit of Jesus to be contagious. At CBC, we follow Jesus and encourage others to do the same through three actions - gathering, growing and going. We gather in worship. We grow in small groups, which allow us to be known. We go out in to the world around us, sharing God's love and goodness with our local community and the rest of the world.
Mission is our big idea. It's what we get up in the morning and strive to accomplish. Our values are who we are when we are driving towards our mission. It's the character of CBC. If mission is the end goal, our values are the kind of people we want to be while getting there. Click on each of the Values to hear more about what it means to us.
Redeemed People Can't Keep Quiet
Authentic Community is Messy
Can't Do Life Alone
Everyone Has a Part to Play
It all spells out GRACE. Grace is the overarching, driving value at CBC. Basically, grace is the idea that we all need the same amount of Jesus to save us. We are all in process of being changed, and we know first hand life is messy. It's in the messiness we see God's goodness most clearly. Church isn't somewhere you go when you've got life cleaned up - church exists because we need Jesus to do the cleaning. Find out more on why we value grace so highly.
