The Mission of CHBC – Extending the Gospel
The church is not a building people meet together in, but a people who gather to worship Jesus Christ as Lord. And the goal of extending the gospel is to see more worshippers gathering under the Lordship of Christ, whether in our church with us (outreach), or in other biblically planted and biblically modeled churches (missions). Extending the gospel is not an institutional responsibility, but an individual Christian matter of obedience. Evangelism happens corporately because each member of the body is faithful to plant and water the seeds of the gospel.
We continue to wait for updates related to the final production of the carpet that will be installed in our worship center. We will keep you updated as we find out the specific timeline. The new choir risers should arrive in about a week. Thank you for patiently praying with the Building Team as this project is underway.

Scripture of the Month
Mark 12:29-31 "Jesus answered, " The foremost is, 'Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is One Lord; And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this' You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." Each week CHBC says aloud a passage of Scripture during our morning worship gathering. This is done for two reasons. First, we are commanded in Scripture to encourage one another with the Word of God. Second, we want to emphasize the spiritual discipline of Scripture memory. Receive a text to your phone with this verse set to music by texting the word “CHBCVERSE” to the number (302) 207-SONG (7664).
A Moment in Church History
On May 26, 1521, at the Diet of Worms a special session is held which finds Martin Luther guilty of heresy and calls for his arrest and death. Learn more about what happened on this date in church history by following this link: Today in Church History.
Pray for one another the words of this passage of Scripture. Pray that by divine wisdom each one of us would act in ways that are pure, peaceable, reasonable, and full of mercy.
“For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.”
