At CRBC we are committed to engagement in missions and evangelism that follows a Scriptural pattern.Our church constitution defines our purpose as a church as follows:
Our purpose is to obey the Great Commandment (Matthew 22:34-40) and the Great Commission (Matthew
In addition, in our core doctrinal affirmations, we make this declaration:
We affirm the need for the church to be engaged in evangelism, missions, and ministry. We shall support the preaching of the gospel and the planting of Biblical churches throughout the world. Although we are an independent congregation, we shall work together with like-minded churches and organizations in the spreading of the gospel and for our mutual support and edification in the faith.
Missions that we support directly:
Andy and Beth Rice: Missionaries to Zambia
Trinitarian Bible Society
We give regular monthly support to the Trinitarian Bible Society, including designated support for a project aimed at making a new translation of the Bible into the Farsi language.
