For just over 11 years now, Community Bible Church has had an outward reminder of the biblical truth that the local church is God’s people gathered, not the building in which they meet. Today as we entered an exciting new phase of ministry in our own beautiful building, we don’t want to forget that important truth.
We have a street address now, but what makes CBC isn’t the brick, siding, concrete, and wood you’ll see on Benson Street in Trenton. CBC is something alive just like Jesus, the Chief Cornerstone, is alive. We are living stones, being built into a spiritual house so that we might declare His praises for calling us out of the darkness of sin and into the brightness of new life.
“As you come to him, the living Stone…you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house…offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ…you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:4, 9)

This is sooooo exciting, Erica and Matt! Thanks for sharing the important reminders and for including pictures of real people doing real work that really matters! Continuing to pray for CBC every Sunday morning!
Thanks for your kind words and prayers, Brenda! We are thankful for the financial and prayer support of many over the years and we know God used their (your!) faithfulness to bring us to this point. Great to hear from you!
