Book Recommendations

We live in an age in which most anyone with a laptop and an idea can pound out a book (or two). Even in evangelical circles, this potential for production threatens to overwhelm us. With so many books out there, what should we read? As those who have encountered Edward’s meditations, Dallimore’s biographies, and Piper’s […]

Congregation

The congregation represents the final authority on all matters of church life. Recognizing that both Jesus and Paul appealed to the congregation as the adjudicating body on matters of discipline, we structure our polity congregationally. We are a self-governing church, captive only to the will of God (Matthew 18; 1 Cor. 5). Accordingly, the congregation […]

Deacons & Deaconesses

The deacons and deaconesses of CHBC fill supportive roles as they coordinate various ministries that relate to the physical needs of the congregation. As those who free the elders to provide spiritual oversight to the church, the deacons and deaconesses each oversee a particular church ministry (e.g. Sound Ministry or Nursery). At their discretion, the deacons […]

1-on-1 Discipling

God in His grace has not made us to walk alone in the Christian life.  In one-on- one discipling relationships, two Christians of the same sex meet to study Scripture, hold one another accountable, and pray.  Within this basic framework, discipling relationships may take a number of different shapes: an elder member may disciple a younger member, […]

Students

There is great benefit to spending time with wise, godly Christians. We seek to season the consciences of students by bringing them together at church with believers of all ages to learn abut God and His truth. Additionally, we emphasize that parents are the principal shapers of young minds and that the home is the […]

Children

We treasure our children because “sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him” (Ps. 127:3). Jesus himself cherished children and blessed them, saying, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Mt 19:14). It is a joy […]

Governed

As the children of God, we have submitted ourselves without reservation to His good governance. Our resistance to His good guidance has crumbled; our attempts to control our destinies are cast off; our aspersions against His will are silenced. God leads us now. As with our individual lives, so with our corporate lives. We are […]

Adults

As adults understanding our need to care well for our souls, we come together to learn from the Bible, the life-giving Word of God. We place emphasis on this idea of togetherness, believing it most helpful to our collective spiritual growth to focus on gathering with men and women of all ages in our weekly […]

Bible Study

Each Wednesday night, beginning at 7pm, we gather to meditate collectively on a passage of Scripture. For an hour’s time, one of our pastors leads an inductive study of a few verses, helping attendees to parse out different translations, meanings, and applications from the passage. We ask three primary questions of the text during our […]

Covenant

CHBC has worshiped together under a covenant, or statement on how we agree to live as a church, since our earliest days in 1878. The church covenant is equal parts promise, summary of expectations, ethical statement, and biblical standard. We summarize how we promise to live together in the covenant. It forms the ethics, or […]
