    Sharing Christ – Part 4
    Jonah 1:1 - 4:11, II Kings 14:25, and Matthew 12:38-45
     
    Sharing Christ with our friends and loved ones can often seem like an overwhelming task all in itself. With this message we explore the book of Jonah and wrestle with the challenge to share with people we don't like, even our enemies. "The Lord is a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love" (Jonah 4:2).

    Sharing Christ – Part 3
    Luke 15:3-7, Luke 18:24-25, Luke 19:1-10
     
    Salvation does not come from what we are able to do or how much we have, it is by faith in Christ alone. Jesus came to seek and save the Lost and he wants to use His church to represent Him in the same way.

    Sharing Christ – Part 2
    Your Story and God's Story
     
    Do you know how to share your faith with a friend? In this message we talk about how you can share both your story, as well as explore three ways to share God's plan of salvation. We walk through the tools of: Do vs. Done, The Romans Road and The Bridge Illustration to help you use God's word to explain His plan to solve man's problem of sin.  The Good News that makes a way for all to have a right relationship with God through Jesus.

    Sharing Christ – Part 1

    Acts 20:24, I Peter 3:15-16, and II Corinthians 5:16-20 

    Christ followers have been called to Share Christ with a lost world. Are you ready to share with friends who may ask about the hope of Christ in you? In this introductory message we set the stage for our need to learn how to share our faith with others.

    Better Together – Part 4 “Impacting The World”
    Matthew 28:16-20, Acts 1:5-8, and Philippians 4:10-20
    On this 1st day of May we celebrated the ordinances of The Lord's Supper and Baptism together as a church family. The introduction for our  message was the baptisms of Teagan Bird, Macy Nolan and Shelly Bloomer. Unfortunately that portion of our service was not recorded. However, we have included the video testimonies of those who were baptized. The message that followed was a brief reminder that we are called to be a church that both sends, partners with and supports God's mission for us to reach the world with His love.  Ten and a half percent of all offerings received at Community Bible Church are used outside our church walls to support this effort. We are Better Together, and that includes those who the Lord has called to serve him in hard to reach places.

    Better Together – Part 3 – Serving in Our Community
    Galatians 5:13-14 and Matthew 5:14-16
    Christ followers are called to be a light in the world. At Community we believe everyone should use their gifts within the church, but not so much so that they are not also actively bringing God's light to a world in need. Where might God want you to volunteer and show His love in your community?
  • Apr 17, 2016Better Together – Part 2 “The Team – Serving in the Church”
    Apr 17, 2016
    Better Together – Part 2 “The Team – Serving in the Church”
    I Peter 4:10-11, I Corinthians 12 and 13, and Ephesians 4:1-16
    In this message we see that Scripture reveals that every Christ follower has been given a gift to be used to serve others, so we can be the church. We are better together and God can use us for His glory!
    "A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other." - I Corinthians 12:7
    "God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another." I Peter 4:10

    Apr 10, 2016
    Better Together – Part 1
    I Peter 2:9-12 and John 13:33-35
    With this message we begin our new series entitled "Better Together." We explore our responsibility as a church to represent Christ together to a world in need.  This message sets the stage for us exploring the mission of Community Bible Church for the next several weeks. It is not enough to know that our mission is to Share Christ, Build Believers and Serve Others. We must be equipped to live it out!
  • Apr 3, 2016The Life of Jesus – Part 12 (Mark 16)
    Apr 3, 2016
    The Life of Jesus – Part 12 (Mark 16)
    Mark 16 and Matthew 28:16-20
     
    In this message we conclude our series on The Life of Jesus and launch into our new series discussing the mission of CBC: to Share Christ, Build Believers, and Serve Others. We take a look at the conclusion of Mark's gospel and then wrestle with the command given in the Great Commission found in Matthew. To make disciples who make disciples.
  • Mar 27, 2016The Life of Jesus – Part 11 – “Risen” (Mark 16)
    Mar 27, 2016
    The Life of Jesus – Part 11 – “Risen” (Mark 16)
    Romans 5:6-10, Mark 16:1-7, 14:27-31, 14:71-72, I Corinthians 15, II Timothy 1:10 and John 11:25-26
    He is risen! This Easter Sunday message looks at the resurrection account found in Mark and reflects on the reason the angel in the empty tomb specifically mentions Peter. We can come to God in our brokenness and find the forgiveness He offers that will make us whole.
  • Mar 20, 2016The Life of Jesus – Part 10 (Mark 15)
    Mar 20, 2016
    The Life of Jesus – Part 10 (Mark 15)
    Matthew 15, Psalm 22, Hebrews 10, Galatians 5:24
    In this message we recall what took place on the cross for our forgiveness.  Jesus Christ gave His life to pay for the penalty of our wrong doings, our sin. Through His perfect sacrifice we now have the ability to stand forgiven in the presence of our Holy God and have direct access to His throne.
  • Mar 13, 2016The Life of Jesus – Part 9 (Mark 11-14)
    Mar 13, 2016
    The Life of Jesus – Part 9 (Mark 11-14)
    In this message we explore what it means to seek the Lord's will in prayer. Jesus prays in the way in the garden the night he was betrayed. If we hope to lay aside our selfish ways and put others before ourselves we must be people of prayer as well.
  • Mar 6, 2016The Life of Jesus – Part 8 (Mark 9 and 10)
    Mar 6, 2016
    The Life of Jesus – Part 8 (Mark 9 and 10)
    Mark 10:32-34 and 42-45, Mark 11:1-11, Zechariah 9:9, and Isaiah 9:6-7
     
    Jesus willingly led his followers to Jerusalem, where He knew he would suffer, die and rise again. His passionate commitment to fulfill the Father's will, by giving His life as a ransom for you and me, has made a way for all to have a relationship with God. In the triumphant entry Jesus once again affirms his Kingship as the one who can save. He demonstrates His control and authority over all creation and reminds us that His rule is different than all others. It is not a military or governmental rule, but is  a spiritual rule that is eternal.  Will we share the true hope that the world is looking for with those God has placed in our lives?
  • Feb 28, 2016The Life of Jesus – Part 7 (Mark 8)
    Feb 28, 2016
    The Life of Jesus – Part 7 (Mark 8)
    Mark 8:27-38 and Luke 9:23
    This message is a turning point in Mark's gospel. We turn our attention from Mark authenticating Jesus' authority on earth to highlighting Jesus' journey to Jerusalem, the cross and the resurrection. The true reason the Father sent him to earth in the first place. To provide redemption for all who would place their faith on Him.  Who do we say Jesus is and does our life reflect that reality? To follow Jesus we must say no to our selfish ways, take up our cross daily, and follow him.
  • Feb 21, 2016The Life of Jesus – Part 6 (Mark 7:1-23)
    Feb 21, 2016
    The Life of Jesus – Part 6 (Mark 7:1-23)
    Mark 7:1-23, Romans 12:1-2, Mark 12: 41-44
    The religious leaders of Jesus' day honored the Lord with their words, but their hearts were far from him. He calls them hypocrites whose worship was not genuine.  In this message we explore the truth that worship is a lifestyle we live, not simply a service we attend. We look specifically at Jesus' challenge when it comes to worshiping God by giving sacrificially. It is not the size of the gift, but the size of the sacrifice that pleases the Lord.
  • Feb 14, 2016The Life of Jesus – Part 5 (Mark 5 and 6)
    Feb 14, 2016
    The Life of Jesus – Part 5 (Mark 5 and 6)
    Mark 5 and 6, John 6, Matthew 4:4 and 9:35, and II Timothy 3:15-16
     
     
    With each of Jesus' miracles on earth, He teaches a lesson of faith. He can be trusted to provide both provision and protection, but more than that, He can provide eternal life to those who place their faith in Him. His life also provides a pattern worth following.
     
    Are we willing to find a quite place where we can hear from God in the busyness of our lives?
