Cumberland First Baptist is a community devoted to transformative expressions of life, lived in Jesus' name!
The Bible, while our sourcebook, is not a recipe book for life. Pat answers no longer satisfy. We know life is more complex than sound bites. To read the Bible is to make meaning through interpretation.
Just like our lives, the Bible carries multiple meanings and won't be reduced to stale doctrines.
Religious diversity surrounds us like never before, crying out for open interfaith dialogue about common lived values and experiences.
While grounded in a rich tradition of community and American Baptist life, Cumberland is a church energetically engaged in reformulating faith's questions and living fresh answers to them.
