Welcome to Community Bible Church
We are a growing and thriving biblical community where the gospel of Jesus Christ transforms lives and families. Simply put, we are a non-denominational community of faith declaring and delighting in the gospel of grace. We seek to intentionally mature believers in their faith, lovingly convince unbelievers of the truth claims of Jesus Christ, and redemptively minister to a hurting world. Central to all we do is the clear and relevant teaching of the Bible, which we see as foundational to vital spirituality and Christ-centered living in this world. We also value passionate worship of God’s greatness, and purposeful discipleship of all ages. It would be our joy to minister to any need you have and help you grow in your relationship with God- no matter your background.

Weekly Word - Talk to Yourself
No one is more influential in your life than you are, because no one talks to you as much as you talk to yourself.
People laugh at that statement, but I'm really quite serious. You're in an unending, incredibly important conversation with your soul every moment of every day.
You interpret, organize, and analyze what's going on inside and outside of you. You talk to yourself about the past, you talk to yourself about the future, and you talk to yourself about what you're experiencing in the present.
Obviously, this is an internal conversation - if you had this conversation aloud they would probably put you into a ward! But that's why it's so dangerous - you often don't even realize that you're saying things to yourself. But you are. You're saying things to you that will shape your desires, actions, and theology.
What are you saying to you about God and your circumstances? Do your words stimulate faith, hope, and courage? Or does your talk stimulate doubt, discouragement, and fear? Do you remind yourself that God is near, or do you reason within yourself that, given your circumstances, he must be distant?
Here's the question: how wholesome, faith-driven, and Christ-centered is the conversation that you have with yourself every day? Do you remind yourself of your need? Do you point yourself once again to the beauty and practicality of God's grace? Do you tell yourself to run toward him in those moments when you feel like running from him?
No one is more influential in your life than you are, because no one talks to you as much as you talk to yourself. What will you say to you today?
