Introducing people in Woodbridge, VA to Jesus

Membership

Are You Interested in Becoming a Member?

If you are, we will ask just one thing of you.  But we will ask it in four different ways.  We will ask you to COMMIT!

1) Commit to attend.  As a vital part of CBC it is important that members attend worship services as faithfully as possible.

2) Commit to Discover.  A number of opportunities are provided during the course of the year for you to meet the Pastors, elders, directors and other ministry leaders in a more informal setting.  It may be at one of our monthly fellowships, after a Sunday evening Bible study, at a ministry volunteer meeting or possibly even during a CBC workday.   Regardless, each of these gives the occasion for you to get to know CBC and its leadership.  Even more importantly, it will provide you with the chance to become familiar with the heart of our ministry and our people.    In addition, on Sunday mornings we offer various classes, for all ages.  They are designed to provide spiritual enrichment and help you to develop meaningful relationships.  We invite you to “plug in” and discover CBC today!”

3) Commit to Grow.  It is important that CBC members be continually growing in their relationship with the Lord.  Growth is a sign of life.  Growth means increasing our knowledge in God’s Word, which leads to continual spiritual development.  So that we might worship sincerelygrow spirituallypray fervently and serve passionately.  PM Bible studies for adults and youth help to facilitate this.

4) Commit to Give.  We make no apologies for asking CBC members to give of their tithes and talents.  We rely on these two things to keep the ministries and outreaches at CBC going on a daily, weekly and yearly basis.
