Getting to Know CBC

The purpose of this church is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ through Holy Spirit controlled believers fulfilling the Great Commission as found in the following passages:

Matthew 28:19
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Acts 1:8
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Philosophy of Ministry


Closely related to the purpose of any church is its philosophy or ministry. We find our philosophy for ministry in Ephesians 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

Equipping the saints is the primary task God has given to every pastor and pastoral staff. God never intended for any church to hire a pastor to do their ministry. The Bible teaches that all believers are given at least one spiritual gift and no believer has all the spiritual gifts. 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.

Missions Statement


We at Colonial Baptist Church believe that the Biblical mandate given the Church by Christ through the Great Commission is World Evangelization. As outlined in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19 , 20), world evangelism is the process of making disciples by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ verbally, through presence, persuasion, and perseverance, collectively for the purpose of converting, baptizing, and teaching new converts how to live a Christian life according to Biblical (not cultural) principles and practices within the establishment of national and local indigenous churches.

The missions strategy of Colonial Baptist Church (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 all people through the entire world (Matthew 28:19 ,20; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 10:2; John 20:21; Acts 1:8; Romans 10:13 - 15; 1 Corinthians 15:1-5; Revelation 5:8-10, 7:9-10. (See Below)

Matthew 28:19
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Luke 10:2
Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. 

John 20:21
Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

Acts 1:8
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Romans 10:13
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

1 Corinthians 15:1
Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve:

Revelation 5:8
And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.
9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

Revelation 7:9
After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

This is done through the ministry of missions which is the process of being actively engaged in the sending forth of authorized personnel (missionaries) beyond the borders of the local New Testament church and its influence (with and emphasis on crossing geographical, cultural and linguistical barriers, to areas and peoples of the world where Christ is largely, if not entirely, unknown).

The role of Colonial Baptist Church in this great worldwide ministry is to confirm those whom God is calling, to help in effectively equipping them for life and ministry, and then sending them out with sufficient resources and encouragement for their task. We are committed to developing significant loving and accountable relationships with our missionaries, both for them personally and for their ministry.

We are committed to sending our own people where God directs them to go and for the task He equips them to do. As we encourage and disciple missionary candidates, however, we will emphasize: 1) ministries which focus on the "unreached" people groups where there is little or no gospel witness; and 2) strategic efforts which will effectively equip the national Christian leaders to evangelize, make disciples, and plant churches. We are committed to our people, but we will focus on the following strategy and those who best accomplish that strategy whether they are from Colonial Baptist Church or not. Those from CBC who desire to be missionaries sent out by CBC should be familiar with our strategy and the importance we place on reaching the "unreached" people groups.

Fifty by Faith


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

Impact Blue Ridge


Impact Blue Ridge is our church's initiative for fulfilling the "local home part," or what the Scripture calls our "Jerusalem," of the Great Commission.  It is our unique ministry effort that has as it's goal to make a difference for Christ in the lives of the people in our community and to deeply touch these lives for eternity.  Impact Blue Ridge involves all ministries of the church and all equipped saints using their spiritual gifts, natural talents, unique personalities and time. Therefore, we believe that "OUT-REACH" is a church wide team effort. It is our desire that all homes in our community receive a good presentation of the gospel either by written word (gospel tracts) or by the spoken word (visitation and various outreaches).
