We are looking to the future and working towards it now. Yet have re-commited ourselves to specifically and deliberately give the best our plans and ourselves to follow our calling.
It begins with our vision statement forged in 2012.
It continues with our strategic priorities to build our ministries of inspiration belonging and purpose towards 2020.
Our biblical vision spells out why we are here. Since 2010 we have affirmed that God is moving in three ways among us:
• Being followers of Christ. Jesus calls us all to follow with our whole lives. We nurture that life in God through the Bible, prayer, and encouragement for one another. At CBC we now call this our inspiration.
• Being a community. Gathering us together to worship, to connect in groups, and to commit to one another when we meet and make decisions. At CBC we now call this our belonging.
• Engaging in mission. We are getting on with being change-agents to shape the world according to God's longings. This shows in witness, service, and justice both locally and overseas. At CBC we now call this our purpose.
Therefore our vision statement since 2012 is an invitation to people within and beyond CBC: “Discovering and spreading Inspiration, Belonging and Purpose in God.”
