Core Values

CBS has three core values focused on Gospel Centrality, Family Life, and Kingdom Mission. While an intentional Vision Verse and statement directs CBS from year to year, these core values make up the groundwork of our Christian fellowship.

Gospel Centrality

The gospel message of Jesus Christ is the essence and motivation of all that we do as a fellowship body.  It is the central story of God’s redemptive plan (creation, fall, redemption, restoration) throughout the entire Bible and it is the power of God to save people and transform hearts for his glory.  This is all made possible by the sacrificial death of Christ on the cross and his resurrection.  In humbly recognizing that we are all sinners having received the gift of salvation by grace and faith alone, we as His people respond in love and worship. Having received new life, we strive to live out and grow in our understanding of this good news, keeping it at the center of who we are and all that we do in every aspect and area of our lives.

Romans 1:16,  Romans 3:21-26, John 3:16, Titus 3:4-7, Ephesians 2:8-9, 1 Corinthians 15:3-5

Family Life

Through the Gospel, we as believers are born again and adopted into the family of God, living alongside one another as brothers and sisters in Christ.  Because of the love and grace shown to us, we love, serve, and encourage one another in covenant community.  The members of this family, counting others more significant than themselves, sacrificially care for one another by meeting physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.  We gather regularly and frequently to live out the realities of what Christ has done in our lives and to grow more into his likeness.

John 1:12, Acts 2:42-47, Romans 12:10-13, Philippians 2:3-4, Hebrews 10:24-25, Ephesians 4:15-16

Kingdom Mission

As a fellowship, we seek the well-being of our campus community and city, wishing to share and proclaim the love of Christ by word and deed. Our main mission is to fulfill the Great Commission and make mature disciples of all nations by the power of the Holy Spirit. In bringing reconciliation and redemption through the gospel to our various spheres of influence, study, and work, we are bringing forth the kingdom of God, which will be fully realized when Christ returns and makes all things new in eternity.

Jeremiah 29:7, Romans 10:14-15, Matthew 5:13-16, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8, 2 Corinthians 5:18-20, Revelation 21:1-5
