“Making Disciples of Jesus Christ who worship Him by growing in love for God, love for one another, and love for a broken world"

Do you know what’s really special about us here at CSBC?

Nothing! Absolutely nothing!  If you are looking for a perfect church then you are going to be very disappointed with us.  At CSBC you’ll find real people, with real problems, who live real lives, and are all learning to love a real God whose grace is more than enough for all our needs.

You see, here at CSBC we don’t need to cling to our own “special-ness” or “goodness” because of the cross of Jesus Christ.  At His cross we find that we are really not so “good” after all.  In fact, we discover that we are unquestionably guilty and yet can be unconditionally loved and forgiven.

At Jesus’ cross we learn that He does not want to condemn us in our sins but to save us from them.  At the cross we find that God receives us just where we are but He loves us enough not to leave us there.  God can and will change lives.  He is changing us and can change you as well.

So here at CSBC there are only people.  People like me.  People like you.  People like us.  People who desperately need God’s grace.  Everyone is welcome to come and receive that grace.  We invite you to join us on this life-changing journey.
