Community Bible Church of Gordonville

Leadership

Our Lord Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the owner and head of the church. He gave Himself to save her and she is His body and bride. We do not take for granted His rightful place as the true decision maker and final authority at CBCG. All human leadership takes second place to Him and is accountable to Him. The elders and deacons of CBCG affirm that it is their primary responsibility to know Him intimately and to follow His leading implicitly.
