"THE BIBLE, GOD'S WORD IS AS REVELANT
TODAY AS WHEN IT WAS WRITTEN."
Robin and Penny Donley
Robin and Penny have been pastoring at BCF for the last 28 years. Robin and Penny help plant the church as associate pastors in February of 1991 and became lead pastors in August of 2001. Pastor Robin is passionate in his weekly messages and desires to help people grow in their faith, moving from simply a head-knowledge to an intimate heart-knowledge which produces true faith which pleases God. (Hebrews 11:6)
The mission of our church is what we believe brings out the best parts of BCF which is Loving God, Loving People and Serving the World. From Discovery Kids Nursery, LifeLab Kids Church, Epic Youth, Spanish ministry as well as our varies Life Groups and service teams, there’s truly something here for everyone.
BCF’s motto is: Doing Life Together. It is our desire to be a church and a people living life transparently, showing the world around us the love of Jesus in a genuine and sacrificial way, honoring God in all we do.
So, if you are looking for a church to help you grow spiritually, in your relationship with God through Jesus Christ as well as get involved with helping others both in our community and around the world we invite you to make BCF your home church.
We can’t wait for you to visit! And when you do, make sure to come a little early (9:30a-10:25a) on Sundays and get a free cup of coffee.
May God’s blessing be with you and your family and we hope to personally get a chance to shake your hand and introduce ourselves soon.

WHAT WE BELIEVE
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God
We are all made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. We are the supreme object of God's creation. Although mankind has tremendous potential for good, we are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin." This attitude separates us from God.
We all were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. The place of eternal separation from God is called Hell. Heaven is the place of eternal union and eternal life with God.
About Jesus Christ:
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again to earth to reign as King of kings, and Lord of lords.
Salvation is a gift from God to mankind. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can we be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment we receive Jesus Christ into our life by faith.
About the Holy Spirit:
The Holy Spirit is equal with God the Father and God the Son. He is in the world to make people aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.
About the Baptism in the Holy Spirit:
The Bible teaches that all believers are entitled to and should expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit. This was the normal experience of all the early Christian churches. With the experience comes the power for life and service. This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of Salvation. The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by initial physical evidence of speaking in tongues.
About the Bible:
The Bible is God's Word to all mankind. Human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, wrote it. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.
