What is a Bible Church?
A Bible church is a denominationally unaffiliated local church. It is unhampered by the restrictions and decisions of other churches or denominations that might determine the ministry and message of the church. This is not to say that all denominational churches are wrong. Rather, a Bible church has chosen to remain independent of such organizations, so that the Word of God might determine its ministry and message.
A Bible church stresses the authority of the written Word of God. A Bible church strongly adheres to the inspiration and authority of the Scriptures. It draws from the Scriptures the principles that determine beliefs and practices. The apostle Paul wrote to pastor Timothy--"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be perfect (that is, complete) thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (II Timothy 3:16,17). A Bible church proclaims these Biblical truths, being confident that God is glorified and people's needs are met when His truths are presented.
What is the purpose of Culver Bible Church?
The primary purpose of any local church as revealed in the Bible is to glorify God in all that we are, and in all that we do. This is accomplished in several ways: through worship (our relationship with a living Lord); through instruction; (our relationship with the written Word of God); through fellowship (our relationship with other Christians); and through evangelism: (our relationship with those who do not know Christ as the Savior and Redeemer of a lost world).
Culver Bible Church is non-charasmatic in the sense that it does not practice speaking in tongues and other activities associated with charismatic-type churches. CBC believes in the exercise of spiritual gifts, but does not hold that all the New Testament spiritual gifts are for today.
Culver Bible Church, like all true churches, is "the church of God which He purchased with His own blood" (Acts 20:28). Praise the Lord that He did!
