OUR STORY

     Simply stated, we are working and walking the path paved with values instilled in us by the teachings of Jesus. We encourage you to come and join us, especially if you are seeking answers to your questions of faith and spirituality.

     From such humble beginnings of home worship services and mid-week Bible studies, a chapel was built on High Street in Somersworth, NH and dedicated in 1974. Thirty-one years later we were presented with the privilege and opportunity of building a new chapel off of Indigo Hill Road in Somersworth. We moved into the new building in December, 2005.     The same purpose and mission continues at CBF as in 1925. Through sermons, Bible studies, workshops and many other activities, every individual is encouraged to become an active, contributing member of the body of Christ. The church provides a nursery, Sunday School classes, as well as a teen program. Beyond instruction and nurturing of the congregation, an important part of CBF's mission is to carry out charitable and evangelistic work.

     We view our move into the new chapel as an exciting and challenging venture. It presents an opportunity for us not only to continue doing what we have been doing for these many years, but to view it as a new beginning in which Christian fellowship and brotherly love is extended to our new neighors, and to all seeking to know the divine will and purpose of God.

     We invite you to join with us in this joyous and exciting mission of fellowship and discovery. 

 

     Christian Believers Fellowship Church had it's origins in 1925. At that time, several young families left traditional churches and started home Bible studies in Dover, NH. The primary reason for leaving was the realization that, indeed, many of the ceremonies and teachings of these churches were purely traditional, and had no scriptural basis.   The desire of the early founders of CBF was to return to the fundamental simple structure, and doctrinal teaching of the first century church, reaffirming the teachings of Jesus Christ and His Apostles.

     Recognizing the rigid structure and hierarchical arrangements of organized religion, the second major objective of these stalwart pioneers was to provide for services with an atmosphere of freedom in which God's word could be diligently searched to discern what His plans and purposes are for each individual's life.
