Baptism / Communion / Dedication

 Baptism1


 

We cannot add anything to salvation other than believing in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross and His resurrection. But, as an example of that faith, we adhere to the practice of Baptism in obedience to Jesus’ command to His disciples, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”  Matthew 28:19

We are to understand that being baptized does not save us, but is simply an expression outwardly of a change that has happened “inwardly”. It is a statement of witness before the Lord and others that you have committed your life to Jesus as your Lord and Savior and that you are now “symbolically” burying the old self to emerge as a new creature in Christ!

 

So if your desire is to be baptized there are two annual dates when the church gets together to celebrate the public declaration of faith. No registration is required just remember to bring a modest bathing suit and a towel.

If you were not able to be present on those dates contact the church office for further assistance.

 

 

Communion1


Communion is a time to be connected not only with the Lord who saved us but also with the family in Christ.

“And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me. Likewise, He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you. Luke 22:19-20

The Lord’s Supper is a time to reflect and recall what Jesus has done for us. So every first Wednesday of the each month we come together to partake communion in remembrance of Him.

Personal communion is available in the Main Office Conference Room for individuals and families between services on Sundays. Personal communion is also available before and after Wednesday evening service.

 

 Baby1


Here at CCBF, we believe that children are a gift from the Lord and that they belong to Him. Baby Dedication is a way for parents to show publicly that they promise to raise them and teach them the Word of God.  Proverbs 22:6

This is not a means of salvation for the child but, rather, it is a commitment on the part of the parents – a promise to God.

Hanna desperately wanted a child, so she made a promise: “I will give him unto the Lord all the days of his life.” I Samuel 1:11

If you decide to dedicate your child(ren) than signups are available in the Foyer across from the media counter.
