We began as a church plant meeting in places like granges and hotels. After a few years of renting places, our small group, along with our sending church, decided to purchase a more permanent location on South Gold Street. The building was most recently used as a chiropractor office and was not much of a church building. The bathrooms were located in the sanctuary. The carpet was old and worn. The building was rather musty - but it was ours, all 5 parking spots and the 1,600 square foot building (You're right, it wasn't much). Looking back on those days it was nothing short of a miracle that people came to church and stuck around. We praise the Lord as He is the one who builds His church - in spite of the obstacles.
In 2010 we chartered the church and decided to remodel the building to make every square foot count. As the church grew, we went to two morning services and filled the building up again. It became obvious that it was time to relocate and God opened the door. In 2014, we moved to our current location and have been remodeling and building ever since. It took 3 1/2 years, but we built our current sanctuary debt free and went back to one morning worship service the first Sunday of 2018.
In January 2022, God called Pastor Tim to a new ministry opportunity with the Bundles of Hope ministry at Hope Children's Home. The church called (then Assistant Pastor) Pastor Andrew to be the next Pastor of CBBC.
We are currently in the process of building a covered play and picnic area, park and playground. These outdoor improvements will greatly help us serve the church and community. We are debt free, and all our current renovations are being accomplished without debt. It is our goal to turn every square foot that God has given us into a place of ministry for His glory. We'd love for you to come be a part of the story. We would count it a privilege to have you be our guest this Sunday.
