Three Pillars of CBFVA
Why We Do The Work We Do
Every Voice Matters
Defined by Deeply Engrained Core Values
At CBFVA, we believe that the Church is God’s best instrument for doing work in the world. We believe that God has put your congregation right where you are, with the people you need to do the work God is calling your congregation to do. We also believe that God has given us the gift of partners that help us on our way. CBFVA is compelled by God’s spirit to walk alongside congregations as they live out their unique call. We believe the best way to do that, in this season of life, is through Advocacy, Partnerships, and Theological Education.
