Christ the Lord is Risen Today
September 4, 2020
"I want to know Christ - yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death."
1. The goal of the Christian life is to know Christ and to be like Him. Are you willing to fulfill that goal by allowing the same mighty power of God that raised Jesus from the dead to shatter your sinfulness and overwhelm your entire being to be radically transformed into Christlikeness?
2. The goal of the Christian life is to know Christ and to be like Him. Are you willing to fulfill that goal by going through suffering and learning to entrust your soul to a faithful Creator in doing what is right even if it hurts?
First, I want to thank you for being part of our online community. Second, I wanted to ask if you would consider supporting the work of CBF through our online giving portal? We know that many of you are struggling financially. We would never ask anyone in such a situation to give to us rather than care for their family. We believe that our calling is to steward God's gifts well. Asking someone to neglect their obligation to family in the name of financial giving would be irresponsible on our part. Having said this we also acknowledge that many of us have been blessed by God even in this time of hardship. We are asking that those who have been given much would consider helping to support the work God is doing through our church. We are a small community of believer and given our size this time of hardship will continue to affect the work that we are able to produce in the coming weeks and possibly months. We can assure you that anything given to CBF will be used to glorify God in the Naples area. Would you please consider partnering with us in the work of the Gospel? If you feel God leading you to partner with us, just click on the "Support CBF Naples" button below. When you get there scroll down and you will find a "donate" button.

7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
