"For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given..." Isaiah 9:6

Our Purpose

The purpose of this church is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ through Holy Spirit controlled believers fulfilling the Great Commission.

Our Philosophy

Closely related to the purpose of any church is its philosophy of ministry. We find our philosophy for ministry in Ephesians 4:11-12. "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ."
God intended for the local church to function as a team. The body of Christ has many individuals specifically given a spiritual gift, natural talents, unique personality and a particular time schedule to fulfill the divine call of any local church. Each one is equipped for his specific job. Each one is dependent upon the other to perform his specific job. Here at CBC we expect each member to serve as God equips and leads.

Our Goals

Fifty By Faith

 

Colonial Baptist Church is very missions oriented. It is a stated goal of CBC to identify, disciple, train and send out 50 couples or individuals into full-time ministry within a 20 period which began in 2003. This would include missionaries (church planters and mission support personnel), pastors, associate pastors, youth pastors, evangelists, and teachers.

Impact Blue Ridge

Impact Blue Ridge is our church's initiative to share with our community the good news of Christ through an accurate presentation of the gospel by either church activities or outreach ministries.

Our Missions Program

We at Colonial Baptist Church believe that the biblical mandate given the church by Christ through the Great Commission is world evangelization. The missions program of CBC is based on the scriptural conviction that God desires the local church to be the primary means of sending people to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to every tribe, tongue, and nation (Matthew 28:19 -20).

CBC's Response To Covid-19

We are so excited that we can finally meet in person again! To adhere to the guidelines for reopening houses of worship, Colonial Baptist is implementing the following practices for our church: 

Service Opportunities: 

Guidelines 

The current guidelines require that religious services be limited to no more than 50% capacity. To accommodate for this guideline we are now offering the following services on Sunday mornings: 

8:00 a.m.   | Drive-In Service 

10:30 a.m. | In-Person Service 

10:30 a.m. | Live Stream of the In-Person Service on our Facebook page

For our In-Person Services we ask that you review the following questions on behalf of your health and the health of all those attending the service: 

  • Am I showing any flu-like symptoms?

  • Have I had a fever within the last 14 days?

  • Have I had prolonged exposure to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19? 

  • Is there any medical reason why I shouldn't be around others?

If you answered yes to any of those questions or if you still are not totally comfortable with coming to an indoor service yet we encourage you to attend either our Drive-In Service or join us online this week. 

What steps have we taken to best ensure the health and safety of you and your family?

Entrances 

All main entrances will be open to ensure that there is as little touching as possible coming in and out of the building and sanctuary. 

Sanitation 

You will find hand sanitizing stations available in the lobby near each entrance. Additionally our staff is working to make sure all areas are cleaned after services and throughout the week. 

Face Masks 

 

The Governor of Virginia has required that everyone 10 years old and older wear a face mask when indoors. As a result we are suggesting that face coverings be worn during our indoor services. We do have face masks available and if you would like one please see a member of our welcome team and they will be happy to grab you a face mask. If this causes health concerns for you, the Governor has stated that you are not required to wear a mask. Thank you for understanding as we all go through this time together! 

Restrooms 

Our restrooms are open and available for use and will be routinely cleaned by our staff. 

Social Distancing: 

Seating 

 

In order to maintain the 6 ft. social distancing requirement we have marked off every other pew in the sanctuary. Family members are allowed to sit together but we ask if you are sharing a pew with another family to be mindful of the space between your family and theirs.
