Loving God, Loving People, Serving Both

Good eating

Pastor LZ, perhaps the only Southern Baptist minister in the universe who doesn’t like chicken, managed to choke down a few bites of his least favorite food during Eggstravaganza in November.  The pastor was making good on a promise to the New Vision Sunday School class: If they would refurbish their threadbare classroom, he would eat a small amount of fried fowl.  They did, he did.  Bringing out the chicken is Johnny Bradford.  For more evidence of the historic event, click the “Photos” tab above.



A lot of boxes

Pastor LZ Johnson (left) joined Susan and Judd Clements in admiring the 158 Operation Christmas Child boxes donated by CFBC members.  The Clements, retired missionaries to Tanzania, spearhead the Christmas box drive every year.  The church exceeded its ambitious goal of 150 boxes.

Off to Carnton

Members of the women’s book club (joined by Pastor LZ Johnson for the photo) recently visited Carnton and Carter House, historic sites from the 1864 Battle of Franklin.  Their October reading selection, With This Pledgewas set during the battle.

Life’s Greatest Question


Do you know for certain that you will go to Heaven when you die? Would you say that is something you are still working on? One thing you can know for sure is God loves you!  God's Word is clear, either you will spend eternity with God or suffer eternal separation.

16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved (John 3:16-17).  

The Main Thing 
The starting point for CFBC is Jesus. Our hunger is to know Him and share His love with those around us. We invite you to know Him and know what it means to be forgiven and truly follow Christ. Life is full of demands, conflicts, struggles and tough decisions. Meeting those challenges takes strength, and that strength can only be found in Jesus Christ, and we unashamedly proclaim Him as Lord! That's why we like to say that CFBC is a great place to belong, filled with loving people ready to welcome you.....We look forward to seeing you this Sunday!      
What is Heaven and how do I get there?   
What do you think it takes for a person to go to Heaven?  Please review the information found under God's Plan of Salvation icon or if you would like to speak with someone about Eternal Life, please call the church office at 931-967-7506.  One of our Ministry Team members will be glad to hear and answer your questions.
