If you're looking for a church to attend once a week which will make you feel all warm and fuzzy about how good you are, CBC isn't the place for you. If you want to hear preaching from a "social gospel" with no moral absolutes, CBC isn't the place for you. If you believe the Holy Scriptures are not the totally-inspired, inerrant Word of God and aren't willing to change your mind in that regard, CBC probably isn't for you. If you believe that there's any other way to Heaven except by Jesus Christ (John 14: 6), you need help, and a visit to CBC is prescribed. If you just want to go fill a seat to check- off a weekly "obligation" and aren't interested in growing in your Christian walk, CBC isn't the church for you. If you believe that you can live like the Devil for six days then go to church on Sunday and make everything OK, CBC might not be the place for you. However, if you are interested in solid, scripturally-based, preaching, fellowship with good people who are striving to grow in a daily walk with Christ, you are interested in your own Christian growth, are willing to submit completely to the Lord, and you are willing to serve Christ and others, CBC just might be the place for you. If you want a pastor and church family who will welcome and love you, CBC is definitely a church you should consider.

I am the author of the other review under the name 'evandyril. I have been informed of the truth of the issue with the couple, and the passing of the husband. I was grossly misinformed, and have to state that Pastor Zacharias dealt very well with a very difficult situation. I have also resolved the personal issues I had, and have reconciled and returned to the Church!What you will find at CBC in Branford are a Pastor, and a congregation that will stand with you, and help you, and pray with and for you. I regret that I wrote as I did previously... after all, Jesus went to the 'sinners' and the lowly people... not to those who were perfect. If you are looking for a place where nobody is perfect, but you will be received warmly, and shown love and grace in Jesus Christ, please don't hesitate to visit, or give Pastor Zacharias a call. God bless you!!

I attended this church for several years. I would not go back. The teaching can be described as fanatical fundamentalism... to the point that Pastor Tim Zacharias counselled a woman to stay in an abusive marriage, but when the husband tragically died of a heart attack, he counselled her to NOT give him a wake or a funeral because he was not worthy... because he had 'strayed from God'.

Zacharias also refused to marry a couple in his church because the woman had been divorced once... 8 years previous, from an abusive husband... then when the couple did not want to follow Zacharias' specific couselling schedule, he would not have anything to do with the wedding. Besides this, the man who teaches the adult Sunday school told the husband-to-be that he would be commiting adultery if he married the woman... odd how the Pastor and the main Bible teacher don't agree on such points as marriage...

There are good people that go to this church, don't get me wrong... but I do not believe that the Pastor is qualified to do what he does. If you are looking for a church in the shoreline area, I would look elsewhere... at Community Baptist, you are either a 'cookie cutter christian', or you just are not fully accepted...

Pros: Good people in the congregation

Cons: Awful Pastoral couselling
