Our Philosophy

Our ministry philosophy is guided by the following principles:


Part of our DNA, prayer is the starting point for our decisions and our activities – everything we do.


We want every single person who attends a CBS class to feel cared for and loved, and comfortable regardless of their background, education, church involvement, ethnicity, or economic status. Our desire is to build unity in the midst of diversity.

Denominational respect

We concentrate on the essentials of the Christian faith, not on denominational distinctives. As we grow in our love and respect for one another we learn that Christians can hold differing views on matters that are not essential to salvation.

Leadership development

CBS leaders are volunteers who feel called by God to their roles, and give of their time and talents out of love for Him. Shepherding occurs at every level so that each individual feels connected and cared for and does not operate in isolation. Each leader is equipped specifically for their role and must attend ongoing training and spiritual enrichment sessions.


We have a manual that assists classes in operating as effectively and efficiently as possible. It is packed with guidelines that have been developed and have proven successful over time. We aim for excellence in everything we do.
