In our house, we initiate and celebrate life change in Jesus’ name. We are a place for people to start growing, developing, and connecting. We are preparing and equipping believers for life ministry.
We are CBC.
CBC continued to grow at a rapid pace at our 1604 location. The church began to quickly run out of worship space on the weekends and began a plan to build a new sanctuary and children’s building. Through the fall of 2003 and all of 2004 the church launched a giving campaign for the new buildings. Construction on the Worship Center began in 2004 and was completed by Christmas of 2005.
As 2006 began, construction continued on the new Children’s Building, that was opened in September of the same year. The church continued to grow adding ministries, services, and campuses. CBC added a service in Spanish, the 1:00 service, and several campuses across San Antonio, and around the state of Texas. CBC’s weekend services grew to over 10,000 people weekly.
From 2012 -2017 brought many changes and transitions for CBC. CBC went from one pastor and 4 services to 3 pastors and 7 services, and over 12,000 in weekly worship attendance. In 2016 our founding Pastor, Robert Emmitt, retired and we transitioned to our new Lead Pastor Ed Newton. Pastor Ed had been speaking at CBC men’s conference since 2010, and in 2016 moved his family from Orlando to San Antonio.
From 2018-2020 has seen God pour out his holy Spirit in amazing ways at CBC. We have launched a new campus, we have become completely debt free as a church, and we have built a park at CBC as a gift to the city. We have gotten the opportunity to be instrumental in lifting our city during the pandemic that has captivated our world by providing food distributions, blessing teachers and schools, and partnering with so many churches around our city.
