Means of Grace: Gathering
Thesis: Gathering is a means of grace to the believer that connects believers to hear the gospel, illustrate the gospel, and confirm the gospel through the church as a primary means of discipleship and edification for the believer.
From CBC Statement of Faith: We believe that Christ is the Head of the Church, which is His body, established to bring God glory. All who have trusted in Christ as Savior are members of this body. Christians should commit themselves to worship, prayer, instruction, fellowship, stewardship, and service in a local church. The church is responsible to represent Jesus Christ in the world through godly living and evangelism. All believers are commanded to participate in two church ordinances: believers’ baptism, by immersion if pos sible, and the Lord’s Supper; the bread and cup symbolizing Christ’s body and blood.
