what to expect
we love jesus
We think Jesus is the greatest person you will ever meet, and so we bring Him up a lot. We believe that Jesus is who He said He is--God's Son, our Savior, come down to live the life none of us can ever live and die the death we deserve to offer us salvation and eternal life that we could never earn on our own.
sing pray learn
We worship through song, prayer and by opening up God's Word to learn. We sing a mixture of both old and newer songs that help focus our hearts and minds to the awesomeness of God. Once a month we take extra time within our service to celebrate Communion together.
Our kids ministry for Sunday mornings focuses on 4 to 9yrs. The kids are dismissed to their classroom prior to the message, right after the music portion of our service. Kids are welcome to remain with their parents for the whole service if they prefer. A Nursery is available for mothers with children 0-17months. We also have a Wiggle Room for parents with kids 18months to 3 years. The service is presented on a TV in the room so that parents do not miss the message.
Church is not a building but its people. Life is full of hardships and trials that we can't bear on our own. Simply put, we need each other. That's why God refers to His followers as His family. Our Groups and Studies are the building blocks of our church. This is where people connect, discuss, study the Bible, grow and serve together. This is where transformation really takes place. Our groups meet at a variety of times throughout the week.

what we believe
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God. It is without error in the original manuscripts and has been preserved by God in its verbal and complete inspiration. It is our supreme and final authority for all truth, for all time and all people (2 Tim. 3:16, 17; 2 Pet.1:20, 21).
We believe that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit - and that these three are one God (Matt. 3:16-17; 28:19; Mark 12:29; 1 Corin. 8:5-6; 2 Corin. 13:14). He is the supreme authority over man in all affairs (Acts 5:28-29; Rom 13:1-4). We believe that God is the creator of the universe and that all of creation was brought into being out of nothing in six literal twenty-four hour days (Gen.1 & 2; Ex. 20:11; Isa. 44:24; Heb. 11:3). We believe that God, by His sovereign choice and love for all mankind, sent His Son Jesus Christ into the world to save all sinners (John 3:16; Rom. 5:8; 1 Tim. 1:15; 2:3-6, 1 John 2:2, 4:10).
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, second person of the Godhead, was born in the flesh by the Holy Spirit through the virgin Mary, thus being fully God and fully man. He lived a sinless life, was crucified, gave His life as the payment for the sins of the world, and raised bodily from the dead on the third day. He ascended to the Father's right hand where He is head of the church and intercedes for believers. He is coming again personally, bodily and visibly back to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom and then reign forever and ever. (Matt. 1:18-25; Luke 1:30-35; Acts 1:11; Rom. 8:34; 1 Cor. 1:16-18; 1 Tim. 2:5-6; Heb. 4:14-15; Rev. 11:15; 19:11-16).
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead who convicts all men of their sin, and their need of salvation. At the moment of salvation He indwells, seals and baptizes all believers into the Body of Christ, the church. He then proceeds to fill all believers as they yield to Him, submitting to His guidance and confessing known sin. (John 16:7-11; Rom. 6:12-14; 8:9,11; 1 Cor. 12:13; Gal 5:16; Eph. 1:13; 4:30; 5:18).
We believe that man was created by God, sinless, in His own image and likeness, both male and female, to rule as His representatives here on earth. Mankind then fell, breaking fellowship with God through sin and thereby incurred to himself and his posterity not only physical death, but spiritual death as well. As a result, all mankind became sinners by nature and by choice. The only hope for mankind is found in the Lord Jesus Christ, who died for our sins and offers a changed life, an abundant life and eternal life to all who will call upon Him for salvation (Gen.1:26-27; 3; Ps. 51:5; Jer.17:9; Rom.1:18-3:20; 5:12-21; 7:14-18; 10:8-13; 2 Cor. 4:3-4; 5:17-21; Eph. 2:1-3; 4:17-22).
We believe that salvation is freely available by faith to all mankind. Jesus Christ is the propitiation for our sins, and also the sins of the whole world, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us. Thus mankind is saved on the simple and single ground of His shed blood. This free gift of salvation with its forgiveness of sins, its impartation of a new nature, and its hope of eternal life is entirely apart from good works or mankind’s efforts, and is by grace through faith. Salvation comes by putting your trust in Christ alone. Each true believer is eternally secured by God, so that he cannot lose his salvation, but sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and bring God's loving discipline upon him (John 3:14-18; Rom. 3:21-30; 5:6-9; Gal. 3:13; Eph.1:13-14; 2:8-9; 4:30; Heb 9:22; 12:5-11; 1 John 1:5-2:2; 5:10-13).
We believe that the body of Christ is made up of all true believers from Pentecost to the rapture, regardless of membership or non-membership in the organized churches on earth. This body expresses itself in local assemblies who are led by elders and united for worship, instruction, equipping the saints, fellowship and outreach, being subject to Jesus Christ as their head (Matt.16:16-18; Acts 2:1, 42-47; Rom. 12:5; 1 Cor. 12:12-27; Eph. 1:20-23; 4:3-13; Col. 3:14-15; 1 Tim. 3:1-7; Tit. 1:5-9).
We believe that the responsibility of every believer is to glorify God. We glorify God by growing toward spiritual maturity, which includes: regular time in the Word of God and prayer; obedience to the Word of God; and yielding to the indwelling Spirit of God. We believe that some spiritual gifts have ceased to function, such as the gifts of tongues, prophecy the working of miracles, etc. We also believe that all sin is detrimental to walking by the Spirit, including lying, idolatry, immorality, abortion, homosexuality and pride. (Ex 20:1-17, Lev 18:22; Psalm 139:13-16; Rom. 1:21-32; 6:11-13; 8:1-14; 1 Cor.13:8; 14:1-40; 2 Cor.12:12; Gal.5:16-23; Col.3:1-17)
We believe that sin is lawlessness, the transgression of God's will, either by omitting to do what the Word of God requires or by doing what it forbids. Sin can occur in thought, word, or deed. Mankind was created without sin and morally upright, but sin entered into human experience when Adam and Eve violated the direct command of God by eating the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. Because Adam was the head and representative of the whole human race, his sin affected all mankind - all people have sinned. The only relief from the penalty of death and judgment for sin is faith in Jesus Christ as noted in #6, SALVATION above. (Rom 3:23; Rom 5:12-21; Gal 3:22; 1 John 3:4)
the lord's supper
We believe that the Lord's Supper is a reminder of Christ’s death until He comes. It is a celebration of life in Christ which should be preceded by sincere self-examination. It is also a commemoration of His resurrection life in us, reminding us that our Lord is alive and is coming again. It should be freely taken by all believers, reminding us to walk in obedience to our Lord. The bread and the cup are symbols of our Lord's body and blood (Matt. 26:26-28; 1 Cor.11:23-34).
We believe that baptism by immersion is an act of obedience by those who are already saved. It is an outward testimony of an inward reality that reveals one’s personal faith in the crucified and risen Savior, Jesus Christ (Matt.28:19-20; Acts 8:35-39, 1 Cor. 1:14-17).
We believe that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman. All intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship, whether heterosexual, homosexual, or other perversions, is immoral and therefore sin (Gen. 1:27, 2:24-25; Ex. 20:14, 17, 22:19; Lev. 18:22-23, 20:13, 15-16; Matt. 19:4-6, 9; Rom. 1:18-31; I Cor. 6:9-10, 15-20; I Tim. 1:8-11; Jude 7).
We believe in a pre-wrath rapture of the church. This includes recognition that the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord are separate events in Scripture. (1 Thess 1:10, 5:9; Matthew 24:15-28; John 16:33; Luke 21:25-28).
Cascade Bible Church has encouraged the bulk of the missionary support to be through individual and family commitments. Over the past few years, the church has supported short-term mission trips to Idaho, Mexico, Colombia, and South Korea.
At present, the church is committed to helping with financial support for Michael and Jonna Payne with Cadence International in South Korea. Their mission is to provide Spiritual and moral support to military personnel in the Osan Hospitality House near Osan, South Korea. Their ministry is mostly to US military personnel, discipling, fellowshipping, and encouraging them while providing a place to be removed from the pressures and stresses of their military mission and surroundings. They enjoy fellowship, home-cooked meals, and ministering to one another as followers of Jesus Christ while being discipled by Michael and Jonna. They are extremely busy in this ministry due to the constant rotations of personnel in and out, along with the pressing spiritual needs of young believers in such challenging situations common to military personnel.
