Knowing What We Believe and Why...
You are invited to join us in our study of the doctrines (teachings) of the Christian faith. We suggest visiting this Sunday School class until you have gone through all the doctrinal ports. After that point, we invite you to join one of the Adult Bible Classes where books of the Bible and related topics are studied in depth.
The Foundations class is intended to help you establish a basic understanding of each of the doctrines in our doctrinal statement, and to teach the basic church policy by which Community Bible functions. Having laid a firm foundation for your faith, you now can grow spiritually and remain steadfast in the Lord.
Because newcomers to CBC are encouraged to attend the Foundations Class, our times together will begin with introductions. Over the weeks we hope that you will not only get to know others in the class but will open your hearts and homes to one another.
After introductions, we will have a time of prayer. Please feel free to share any requests that you have, or to volunteer to pray for someone else's request.
