Welcome to CSBC

Today we celebrate 65 years of ministry for our Church, and as we look backward, we are thankful for what God has done! Today is the first Sunday of the second half of 2024 and we look forward to what God will do with us, through us and in us as we continue to faithfully serve our Savior. We are so thankful you have chosen to be her. We have prayed for every person the Lord sends our way. We have asked Him to speak to every person through the music, teaching and preaching. God bless you for being here today. Please let us know you are here by filling out our digital guest card. We pray that God will bless you this weekend!

-Pastor Dennis Jennings

Celebrating 65 Years of Ministry

CSBC began in 1959, and has been faithfully engaged in the Great Commission given by the Lord Jesus, reaching, teaching and ministering in Springfield and beyond for 65 years. Our church has been led by just four pastors: Dr. Kenneth Gillming, Harold Brown, Ken Gillming, and Dennis Jennings. Each of our previous pastors led with great passion for the Word of God and the souls of the lost here and around the world. We thank the Lord for the godly foundation and heritage that continues to inspire us as we shine our collective light here and around the world.

Welcome Our Guests

It is our joy to have guests with us at CSBC in any of our services. Our desire is always to warmly welcome those who honor us with a visit. For our 65th Anniversary, we have several notable guests, including Ken Gillming (previous pastor of CSBC); Keith Gillming (son of our founding pastor); John Smith (former staff member); Dan Brown (son of former pastor Harold Brown); Ben Jennings (son of Pastor Dennis Jennings). We have missionaries sent from CSBC who came from their fields specifically for this celebration: Jim Eberhard (Kenya); Richie Orrick (Wales); Shane Salmon (Thailand). Let’s welcome these and all our guests to our services this morning.
