Currently, CNCBC is a small congregation with ambitious goals. Our Pastor is Theodis Scott, Jr the son of the late Theodis Scott, Sr. Currently the church is in the building phase. We have just installed new lights into the sanctuary, and are working on a bathroom and fellowship hall remodel.
We have many ministries to get involved in: Sunday School, Music Ministry, Help the Homeless, and a Mental Health Ministry.
In the future CNCBC is looking to get more involved in the local and county communities to help in the fight against homelessness and help to increase education in addition to spreading the Gospel of Christ.
