Missions and Outreach
We take seriously Jesus’ Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you.”
Copperfield Bible Church believes very strongly in proclaiming
the Gospel of Jesus Christ to unbelievers and trusting God to
do His work through His Word. CBC encourages personal
evangelism through our local outreach ministry. Once a month we have a outreach event where we proclaim the Gospel to our surrounding neighborhoods. You can find these outreach events scheduled on the CBC calendar. We also have events such as Vacation Bible School which gives us another avenue to share the Word with our local community.
Everyone is called to the mission field, probably not as a full-time missionary, but in the mission field that is within the sphere of our daily lives: friends, family, and co-workers. We encourage every member to reach out to those people whom God has brought into our lives that need the saving message of Jesus Christ. It is important not only to proclaim the Gospel, but to live our lives in such a way that it does not contradict the message we are proclaiming.
CARE NET PREGNANCY CENTER
This could rightly be placed under "local outreach" since Care Net Pregnancy Center of Northwest Houston
is only minutes away from CBC, but Care Net shows that we care about the spiritual and physical needs of our community.
Care Net's mission is to demonstrate the love of Christ to those facing an unplanned or crisis pregnancy through the provision of spiritual, physical, emotional, and educational support and by proclaiming the Gospel. They are committed to providing compassionate counsel, practical help, and accurate information to men and women facing unplanned pregnancies or past abortions; to promote premarital abstinence; and to do these in a way that draws people to the Lord Jesus Christ to bring Him honor and glory.
We support Care Net financially and through regular collections of clothing, equipment and supplies.
We realize that everyone is not given the giftedness to be a full-time missionary. Our approach to International Missions is to instruct our people as to how they can best support the cause of Christ abroad, as well as giving financial and prayer support to missionaries in the field.
CBC currently supports three missionary families in the United Kingdom, South America, and Albania. More information about these families and their ministries is available in the main sanctuary. These missionaries need our prayers and financial support.
During the Christmas season we also take up a special collection to help the Slavic Gospel Association
in a program called Immanuel's Child
. This program serves to reach children in Russia with special Christmas gifts and tremendous evangelistic opportunity for Russian missionaries and local Russian Churches.
