What is multi-site?

Welcome to Community Bible Church! We are a multi-campus church, with campuses in Beaufort, Grays, and Graniteville, SC. We are also exploring additional campuses in other communities that currently lack a church whose primary mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. We teach the Bible, as the infallible, inerrant and inspired (literally God-breathed) Word of God. Our messages are typically through one particular book of the Bible at a time (expository teaching) rather than topically. This helps insure that all messages are taught in their full context rather than purposing to promote any particular agenda.

Why multi-site?

The purpose of becoming a multi-site church is to make more and better disciples by bringing the church closer to where people are. The motivation is to do a better job of loving people, including different types of people, with an outcome of making significant advances in obeying Jesus’ Great Commandment (Matt. 22:37-40) and Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20). Churches report that conversion growth is greater on their extension campuses than at the original campus.

What are the advantages of multi-site?

  1. Assist in reaching friends and family unwilling to travel a great distance to church
  2. Bring together the best aspects of larger churches and smaller churches
  3. Increase the total number of available seats during optimal worship times
  4. Overcome geographic barriers when a church facility is landlocked or tightly zoned
  5. Enable untapped talent to emerge each time a new venue or site is opened
  6. Mobilize volunteers through an added variety of ministry opportunities
  7. Improve a church’s stewardship of funds and resources
  8. Enable a church to extend itself into smaller niches
  9. Model and train people for church planting elsewhere
  10. Provide a pipeline for the development of emerging leaders and future staff
