11 "And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, 12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, 14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes."-Ephesians 4:11-14
Scripture makes it clear that each believer is uniquely gifted by the Holy Spirit to do ministry. CBC's passion is to see every member active in service of our Lord and Savior, not just a select few. You can take the spiritual gifts survey as a tool to help you discover your calling. Then a pastor from CBC would love to connect with you to discuss how your gifting can be used within the CBC family!
The Spiritual Gifts link will take you Lifeway's website. There you can learn about the different gifts according to scripture and take their inventory. Then, take our CBC Ministry Survey to find out how you can uniquely serve here!
The biblical model used by Paul, and others, is that of a mature follower of Christ investing his/her life in others to help them grow in their own faith. At CBC we are finding ways to be intentional in helping everyone in need of guidance to connect with a mentor of the faith. This is largely done through our Men's and Women's Ministries. If you want to know more about either serving as a mentor or are in need of finding a mentor, let our staff know and we will assist you.
We have recently started to survey our church family asking for help in what trainings we as staff can provide to help our church family live out their calling for Jesus through CBC. With your input and the guidance of our church leadership, new trainings will begin to be made available soon! If you know a training you need right now, please let our staff know!
We also offer annual trainings (such as Financial Peace University, evangelism, and prayer) so check back often for upcoming events! Also, some of our summer small groups will be studying Prayer, so join one of them today!
