CFBC came to be in 1976 as the Lord used the church-planting abilities of Pastor Dave and Grace Reeves. Previously, they had planted other churches in various communities around BC, including just “up the road” in Kimberley.
For the first year and a half, services were held in the Girl Guide Hall on Second St. South. Then, the current property backing on to Victoria Ave. was purchased and a prefab building was erected. Five years later, a permanent building, the one that we continue to occupy, was opened.
More recently, the church was blessed for a number of years by the strong interim ministry of Pastor Helmut Strauss. And in Sept. 2018, Pastor Craig Montgomery commenced his ministry at CFBC.
While there has been of course, times of great growth as well as more difficult years during the more than forty year history of the church, through all of those times God has been faithful. And CFBC continues to be a church that seeks to preach faithfully the Scriptures and point others to Christ.
