Who we are

Say hello to the leadership team at Community Bible Church

Jesus Christ: the Head of the Church

We believe church must be completed centered on Jesus and His glory. Dustin Benge puts it this way: "The church receives all of its life from Christ and has no life apart from Him." What that means for leadership is this: we believe the church ought to follow the example of how Jesus led and in all aspects of how we lead, seek His glory and His alone. (Ephesians 1:20-23, 5:23; Colossians 1:17-18, 2:8-10; 1 Corinthians 10:31)
