Introduction to CBP
Who We Are
Our mission is to build God’s kingdom, His Church, by giving and receiving business from each other through member referrals in a Christ centered environment of relationship and trust.
1: We believe that one of the ways that God’s Kingdom is furthered is through our financial gifts of tithes and offerings. As we are blessed financially, we will in turn bless our individual churches and thus build the Kingdom of God. Consequently, we instruct our members to give to their churches. Malachi 3:10
2: We believe in the Biblical law of sowing and reaping. As we give it is given unto us with even greater measure. Therefore, we encourage our members to participate in this ministry with the desire to give a referral more than to receive one. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
3: We believe that it is Biblical to give our business to believers. We challenge our members to consider giving their business to a Christian first before turning to other sources. 1 Timothy 5:8
4: We believe that trust is an essential component of relationship. As we trust one another we will give and refer business to each other. We therefore encourage our members to long-term Christ-centered relationships. Proverbs 27:17
5: We are Christians. All that we do is for His praise and His glory. Therefore, our business practices and our interaction must be with His purpose in mind over our own. Colossians 3:23
Statement of Faith
Christian Business Partners is comprised of members from many different Christian churches and denominations. These churches have many different views that can vary from one another.
We believe that there are doctrines that are essential to our faith as followers and disciples of Christ Jesus. These doctrines are the absolute foundation of our faith. They are:
- Inerrancy of Scripture We believe that the Bible is inspired by God in its entirety; is without error in the original writings and is a complete and final written revelation from God. (2 Timothy 3:15-17, 2 Peter 1:21)
- Deity of Jesus We believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the promised Messiah, born of a Virgin, totally without sin, God in human flesh, the One Who died on the cross for our sins, was buried, rose again from the dead on the third day and ascended to the right hand of the Father in heaven where He now intercedes for us who believe in Him. (John 1:36-42, Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:34-35, Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26, John 1:1, John 20:28, 1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9, John 19:40-42, John 2:19, Mark 16:19, Actus 7:56, 1 Timothy 2:5)
- Salvation by Faith We believe that all humanity is lost and born with a sinful nature and can only be saved by a personal faith in the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and not by any human merit or performance. (John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5)
