The purpose of the Congregational Bible Church is to help people grow spiritually so that they impact others for Christ.
OUR FOUR OBJECTIVES:
BY DECLARING HIS WORTH THROUGH ADORATION & PRAISE WITH ALL THAT IS WITHIN US.
God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.
Through Him then, let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that give thanks to His name. 16 And do not neglect doing good and sharing, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.
Come, let us worship and bow down, Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. 7 For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand. Today, if you would hear His voice,
BY HELPING THEM MATURE IN THEIR WALK OF FAITH.
For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. 13 For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. 14 But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.
I Peter 2:2
like newborn babies, long for the pure milk of the word, so that by it you may grow in respect to salvation,
CARING FOR OTHERS
BY ACTIVELY MINISTERING TO THE PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL NEEDS IN OUR BODY, COMMUNITY AND WORLD
I John 3:17
But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?
So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith.
What use is it, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but he has no works? Can that faith save him?
For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.
BY TELLING UNBELIEVERS THE GOOD NEWS THAT THEY CAN HAVE THEIR SINS FORGIVEN AND RECEIVE ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH TRUSTING CHRIST.
I Corinthians 15:3
For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy.
And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
