Our Priorities


The foundation of this Church is the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 3:11), and its code of guidance in all its affairs is the Word of God. This Church does here affirm its faith that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the Word of Almighty God (Luke 24:27; 2 Peter 3:15-16).


The purpose of Redding Community Bible Church (RCBC) can be summarized in the statement of purpose Jesus Himself gave to His disciples: “And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)


The priorities of RCBC can be summarized as follows from Acts 2:42-47:

First - RCBC’s chief objective is to worship and glorify God. We seek to propagate and practice conformance to God’s will and delight in Him as the main priority for everything we do. It is our chief aim to reflect back to God (through our words, attitudes and actions) the great treasure that He is in our lives.

Second - to teach and preach all the counsel of God’s Word, and, through the wisdom found in His Word, be guided in our understanding of the Person of God, the way of salvation, and all other areas of godly living, both within and outside of the church.

Third - to experience true fellowship as the family of God through loving and caring relationships; that our relationships would be guided by the truth of God’s Word, and that, being rooted and grounded in love, we would be built up in the likeness of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Fourth - to be a body of believers in which every member is actively putting to use the spiritual gifting God has given them through His Spirit; not just our Pastors, but that every member be an active “minister” laboring for the building up (edification) of the church in love.

Fifth - to spread a passion and delight for the supremacy of God through the Lord Jesus Christ to all the peoples of the world – locally, nationally and internationally. Our great desire is to be a “mission minded/mission guided” body of believers who are exhilarated with God.

** Finally, in all five of the above priorities, it is our aim to pursue God’s strength and supply through trusting reliant prayer, that in all things, God would receive the glory!
