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.
Please watch this space, Facebook, and Twitter (@CumberlandFBC) for news and announcements. We're experimenting with hybrid forms of gathering, so that those that are waiting to be vaccinated or those that are vunderable can reach out and connect.
If you wish to speak to a church representative, please call the church office at 317-750-5873 between the hours of 10a-12p on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
In this moment of uncertainty, we find ourselves falling back on faith community for comfort, guidance and inspiration. Though our lives are now distanced, our congregational ministry remains strong and present, and so must be our support of it. All that you do to provide for our faith family financially is a deeply felt blessing. Now more than ever, that blessing is needed, as our staff helps us navigate this crisis with resolute hope.
