In essential beliefs we have unity

“There is one body and one Spirit – just as you were called to one hope when you were called – one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.” Ephesians 4:4-6 (NIV)

In non-essential beliefs we have freedom

“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters…Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. And he will stand, for the Lord is able to make him stand…So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God…So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God. Blessed is the man who does not condemn himself by what he approves.” Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22 (NIV)

In all our beliefs we show love

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-35 (NIV)


These “Essential Beliefs” of Community Bible Chapel are summary statements regarding the basics of evangelical Christian faith and are in harmony with the Canadian National Baptist Convention (CNBC) Statement of Faith.

About God

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. (Genesis 1:1, 26, 27; Psalm 90:2; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

About Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus was both fully God and fully human, was born of a virgin and lived a perfect, sinless human life. He offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people 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 someday to reign as King of Kings
and Lord of Lords. (Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 8:58, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; Philippians 2:5-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13)

About the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is a divine person, co-equal with the Father and the Son. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with the power for living, enables understanding of Biblical truth and guides them in righteous living. He provides every Christian with spiritual gifts for service. As Christians, we seek to live under His
control daily. (2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 2 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18; Galatians 5:25)

About the Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without any mixture of error. (2 Timothy 1:13, 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105, 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5)

About People

People are the supreme object of God’s creation, originally created in the image and likeness of God. Humanity fell through disobedience, incurring both physical and spiritual death. All people are sinners by nature and sinners by choice and this separates them from the life of God. Only through the atoning work of Jesus Christ can anyone be saved and restored to relationship with God. (Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; 51:1-8; Isaiah 53:6, 59:1-2; Romans 3:23; 5:12)

About The Family

God has planned the family as the first institution of the world. It is made up of persons joined to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption.

Marriage is the joining of one man and one woman with the promise of being faithful to one another for a lifetime. Marriage is God’s special gift. Marriage shows the union between Christ and His church. Marriage gives the man and the woman the way for intimate friendship. Marriage is the way of sexual expression according to the main beliefs in the Bible. Marriage is the way for increasing of the human race. The husband and wife are of the same worth before God. Both are created in God’s likeness. The marriage relationship shows the way God relates to His people. A husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the church. He has the God-given duty to provide for, to protect, and to guide his family. A wife is to submit herself with kindness to the servant leadership of her husband. A wife submits just as the church willingly submits to the leadership of Christ. She is made in the likeness of God.
Her husband is also made in the likeness of God. This makes the wife and husband equals. She has the God-given duty respect her husband. She is to serve as his helper in running the household and supporting the next generation. Children, from the moment of creation, are a blessing and inheritance from the Lord. Parents are to show to their children God’s example for marriage.

Parents are to teach their children spiritual and right values. Parents are to guide their children to make choices based on truths in the Bible. Parents are to guide their children by living a life faithful to God. Parents are to guide their children with loving discipline. Children are to respect and obey their parents.

Genesis 1:26-28; 2:15-25; 3:1-20; Exodus 20:12; Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Joshua 24:15; 1 Samuel 1:26-28; Psalms 51:5; 78:1-8; 127; 128; 139:13-16; Proverbs 1:8; 5:15-20; 6:20-22; 12:4; 13:24; 14:1; 17:6; 18:22; 22:6,15; 23:13-14; 24:3; 29:15,17; 31:10-31; Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; 9:9; Malachi 2:14-16; Matthew 5:31-32; 18:2-5; 19:3-9; Mark 10:6-12; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 7:1-16; Ephesians 5:21-33; 6:1-4; Colossians 3:18-21; 1 Timothy 5:8,14; 2 Timothy 1:3-5; Titus 2:3-5; Hebrews 13:4; 1 Peter 3:1-7.

About Salvation

Salvation is by grace through faith. It is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. 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 anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn in repentance from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26, Romans 5:1)

About Eternity

People were created to exist forever in eternity. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation through Christ. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. (John 3:16; 17:3; Romans 6:23; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; Revelation 20:15)

About Baptism and the Lord’s Supper

Jesus instructed His disciples to remember His death and resurrection. He gave the Church two visible symbols (called “ordinances”) as reminders. These two ordinances are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. While we respect all acts of spiritual obedience, the Bible teaches that Baptism is to be done by immersion, following salvation, as a one-time act of obedience and identification with Jesus Christ as Lord. The Lord’s Supper is an ongoing
symbol remembering our Lord’s death, burial, resurrection and promised return. Each individual must decide his or her own participation in these ordinances. Regardless, we do not regard anyone’s participation in these practices as a means of salvation. (Matthew 28:18-20, 26:26-29; I Corinthians 11:23-32, Colossians 2:12)

About The Church

The Church consists of all those who have been saved through faith in Jesus Christ. Christ is the Head the Church, whose members have been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations. The local church is an autonomous, local body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for teaching of the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship and the proclamation of the Gospel, and for observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The local church is governed by the principles found in Scripture. (Matthew 16:18; Acts
2:41-47; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14; Colossians 1:18; Hebrews 10:25)


The cornerstone of our belief and faith is Jesus Christ. Through Him, we have the free gift of salvation, an eternal relationship with God, and an example of how to live our lives and love God and each other. He is central to everything that we believe and everything that we do. God wants us to live in the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, keeping ourselves constantly in subjection to Christ, we must allow God’s Holy Spirit to live through us in a daily “walk” of faith. All of us need to make sure that He is the
center of our lives in every way.

Join Us Sunday


Community Bible Chapel has services every Sunday at 10am, with nursery and Sunday School for children up to eight year’s old.

Our Sunday morning services are also available online here.

We believe in loving God and loving people.  We believe this is the greatest commandment:

Matthew 22:36-40 36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

We also have weekly bible studies and home groups, and monthly events related to men’s and women’s ministry.

Matthew 28:18-20 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

We began in 2013 as a home group of about 15 people.  We now have a church building in Timberlea.

We are affiliated with the CNBC.

Our pastors/elders are:

Peter Ruttimann
Dave Bergman
Darrell Bergman
Ray McEachern

      Kur lexova per here te pare Kur’anin e Shenjte u befasova ne menyra te ndryshme. Se pari gjeta shume referime te drejtperdrejta te Inxhilit (Ungjillit). Por me terhoqi struktura e vecante me ane te ciles Inxhili ishte permendur. Me poshte jane te gjitha ajetet ne Kur’an qe permendin direkt Inxhilin. Ndoshta ju do te vini re te njejten strukture qe me ra mua ne sy.

      Ai ta zbret ty (Muhammed) librin me argument që të është vërtetues i librave të mëparshme. Ai e zbriti më parë Tevratin (e Muses) dhe Inxhilin (e Isait). Udhërrfim për njerëz, e zbriti edhe Furkanin (dalluesin e së vertetës nga gënjeshtra). S`ka dyshim për se ata që mohojnë argumentet e All-llahut i pret ndëshkimi i rreptë. [Sure 3:3-4 (Ali-Imran)]

      Ai (All-llahu) ia mëson atij (Isait) librin (besimin), urtësinë, Tevratin dhe Inxhilin. [Sure 3:48 (Ali-Imran)]

      (madje thuaju): “O ithtarë të librit, pse po polemizoni me ne rreth Ibrahimit? E, nuk ja në shpallur as Tevrati as Inxhilli, vetëm se pas tij?! A nuk e kuptoni (gënjeshtrën tuaj)?” [Sure 3:65 (Ali-Imran)]

      Ne vazhduam gjurmët e tyre (të pejgamberëve) me Isain, birin e Merjemes, vërtetues i Tevratit që kishin më parë. Atij i dhamë Inxhilin, që është udhëzim i drejtë dhe dritë, që është vërtetues i Tevratit që kishin pranë, që ishte udhëzues e këshillues për të devotshmit. [Sure 5:46 (El Maide)]

      Dhe, sikur ta zbatonin Tevratin, Inxhilin dhe Kur’anin, që u zbritën nga Zoti i tyre. [Sure 5:66 (El Maide)]

      Thuaj: “O ithtarë të librit, ju nuk jeni asgjë (në fe) derisa të mos zbatoni Tevratin, Inxhilin dhe atë që ju zbriti nga Zoti i juaj. [Sure 5:68 (El Maide)]

      All-llahu (atë ditë) i thotë: “O Isa, bir i Merjemes, … kur ta mësova ty librin e urtësinë, Tevratin e Inxhilin,!” [Sure 5:110 (El Maide)]

      …(All-llahu dha) Premtim të cilin e vërtetoi në Tevrat, Inxhill e Kur’an. [Sure 9:111 (Et Tevbe)]

      Përshkrimi i cilësive të tyre është në Tevrat dhe po ky përshkrim është edhe në Inxhil. Ata janë si një farë e mbjellë ku mbin filizi i vet, e ai trashet, përforcohet dhe qëndron në trungun e vet, ajo e mahnit mbjellësin. [Sure 48:29 (El Fet-h)].

      Ajo qe bie ne sy kur i mbledh bashke te gjitha referencat e Ungjillit ne Kur’an eshte fakti se “Inxhili” (Ungjilli) asnjehere nuk qendron i vetem. Ne cdo rrethane, termi “Tevrat” (Ligji) eshte perpara. Tevrati eshte libri i profetit Moisi, gjeresisht i njohur si Ligji midis myslimaneve dhe Torah midis judenjve. Ungjilli esht i vecante midis Librave te shenjte, asnjehere nuk eshte permendur i vecuar. Ne te kundert, mund te gjesh referenca te Ligjit dhe Kur’anit te cilat qendrojne me vete. Ja disa shembuj:

      E Musait i dhamë librin plotësim (i të mirave) për atë që tregon bindje të mirë, dhe sqarues për çdo send, udherrëfyes e mëshirë, ashtu që të besojnë se do të takohen me Zotin e tyre. Dhe ky libër, dobi prurës, Ne e zbritëm, përmbanju këtij, ruajuni shtu që të mëshiroheni. [Sure 6:154-155 (El Enam)]

      A nuk e përfillin ata (me vëmendje) Kur’anin? Sikur të ishte prej dikujt tjetër, përveç prej All-llahut, do të gjenin në te shumë kundërthënie. [Sure 4:82 (En Nisa)]

      Me fjale te tjera, verejme qe kur Kur’ani i Shenjte permend Inxhilin, gjithmone e permend si te pandare me Kur’anin dhe gjithmone pas Tevratit. Kjo eshte e vecante sepse Kur’ani e permend veten te ndare kur i referohet Librave te tjere te Shenjte dhe gjithashtu e permend Tevratin pa permendur Librat e tjere te Shenjte.

      Struktura e verejtur edhe ne nje perjashtim

      Vetem nje perjashtim kam gjetur kete strukture. Vereni se si ajeti i meposhtem e permend “Inxhillin”:

      Ne Nuhun dhe Ibrahimin i zgjodhëm të dërguar e pasardhësve të atyre dyve ua dhamë pejgamberllëkun dhe librin, e disa prej tyre po shumë prej tyre mbetën jashtë rrugës. (26)

      Pastaj vazhduam pas tyre (Nuhun, Ibrahimin dhe profetet) me të dërguarit Tanë, e pas tyre dërguam Isain të birin e Merjemes dhe atij ia dhamë Inxhilin, e në zemrat e ithtarëve të tij dhuruam butësi e mëshirë. [Sure 57:26-27 (El Hadid)]

      Megjithese ky eshte i vetmi rast i Inxhilit (Ungjillit) ne te gjithe Kur’anin qe nuk eshte paraprire nga nje reference direkte e Ligjit, konteksti i ketij ajeti konfirmon kete stukture. Ky ajet permend perpara (26) ne menyre te qarte Nuhun, Ibrahimin dhe profetet e tjere dhe ne ajetin 27 permend Ungjillin. Eshte Tevrati – Libri i Musait (Moisiut) qe tregon per Nuhun, Ibrahimin dhe profetet e tjere. Edhe ne kete perjashtim, modeli mbetet sepse Ligji i Profeteve, jo vetem titulli paraprin permendjen e Inxhilit.

      A eshte nje shenje nga Profetet per ne?

      A eshte kjo strukture (Inxhili gjithmone permendet pas Tevratit) e rendesishme? Disa mund te mos e vene re si nje dukuri e rastit ose si nje zakon i thjeshte qe i referohet Ungjillit ne kete menyre. Kam mesuar t’i jap shume rendesi strukturave te tilla ne Librat e Shenjte. Ndoshta eshte nje shenje e rendesishme per ne, te na ndihmoje te kuptojme nje parim te vendosur nga vete All-llahu – ne mund t’a kuptojme Inxhilin, si fillim duke shkuar me pare tek Tevrati (Ligji). Tevrati eshte nje kusht paraprak qe ne duhet te dime perpara se te kuptojme Inxhilin. Mund t’ia vleje pra se pari te shikojme Tevratin dhe te shohim se c’mund te mesojme qe te na ndihmoje te kuptojme me mire Inxhilin (Ungjillin). Kur’ani na thote qe keta profete te hershem ishin nje “Shenje” per ne. Merrni parasysh se cfare na thote:

      O bijtë e Ademit, juve ju vijnë të dërguar nga mesi juaj, ju përkujtonë faktet e Mia (shkoni pas tyre). E kush ruhet dhe përmirësohet, për ta s’ka as frikë as s’kanë përse të pikëllohen. E ata që i konsideruan të rreme faktet tona dhe me kryelartësi u larguan prej tyre, ata janë banues të zjarrit dhe në të janë përjetë. [Surah 7:35-36 (El A’raf)]

      Me fjale te tjera keto profete kishin Shenjat ne jeten e tyre dhe mesazhin per femijet e Ademit (dhe ne te gjithe jemi femijet e tij!) Ata qe jane te mencur dhe te durueshem do arrijne te kuptojne keto shenja. Pra le te marrin parasysh Inxhilin duke shkuar perms Tevratit-duke kujtuar profetet e meparshem qe nga fillimi per te pare se cfare Shenjash ata na kane dhene per te kuptuar Rrugen e Drejte.

      Ne fillojme ne fillim te kohes me Shenjen e Ademit. Sigurisht do te doje t’i pergjigjeshe pyetjes nese librat e Tevratir, Zaburit dhe Inxhilit jane korruptuar. Cfare thote Kur’ani i shenjte per kete pyetje te rendesishme? Po Suna? Ne Diten e Gjykimit do ishte mire t’i kishe dhene kohen e duhur per t’u informuar mbi Tevratin dhe si ishte nje Shenje per Rrugen e Drejte.


      skype system


      Skype is free and it allows you to talk with from one to several people at once while everyone can see a computer screen, enabling people to read and discuss together from anywhere. I have started using Skype with friends around the world where we explore key verses together from Bible/Al-Kitab from my computer screen. We take turns reading, giving people the chance to investigate Al-Kitab so they can be informed about it, and they practice English reading and pronunciation.

      I thought I would make this available to others who would like to try this to investigate Al-Kitab. (I can also do this in French or Swedish if you prefer one of these languages.) For you to do this you need a regular skype account (which is free). If you do not have a skype account please click here to register and then download skype on your computer, tablet or phone.

      Please fill in the form below with your Skype Name so we can become Skype Contacts. When you submit the form I will send you a skype request to become a contact and determine a time convenient for everyone to hold a Skype session to read, explore and discuss verses from Al-Kitab, allowing you to improve your understanding of it.

      This is a site about Al Injil – The Gospel. But this is NOT a site about Christianity. I make this distinction for several reasons.

      First of all, as I explained in About Me, it was always the Injil revealed by the Prophets that has changed my life and has drawn my interest. Christianity has never affected me in the same way and thus has never raised my interest and study as the Injil has done. And since I can only write about what has touched me, I limit this site to only the Injil (and Taurat & Zabur – the books of the Bible or al kitab) as revealed by the Prophets. Many websites exist, some good and others not-so-good, that discuss Christianity and if that is your particular interest I suggest googling ‘Christianity’ and following those links.

      Perhaps you are wondering about the difference between the two. You might think of it as similar to the distinction between being an Arab and being a Muslim. Most people in the West think that these two are the same, i.e. all Arabs are Muslim and all Muslims are Arab. Of course there has been tremendous overlap and influence between the two. Arabic culture and customs have been greatly influenced by Islam, and since the Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) and his companions and successors were Arabic it is also true that the Arabic milieu birthed and nurtured Islam. And today the Qur’an is best read and understood in Arabic. However, there are many Muslims who are not Arab and there are many Arabs who are not Muslims. There is overlap and influence one upon the other – but they are not the same.

      So it is with the Injil and Christianity. There are many things, beliefs and practices in Christianity that are not part of the Injil. For example, there are the well-known celebrations of Easter and Christmas. They are probably the most well-known representations of Christianity. And these festivals are in memory of the birth and passing of the prophet Isa al Masih (Jesus Christ – PBUH), who is the central prophet in the Injil. But nowhere in the message of the Injil, or in the Gospel books, do we find any reference or command (or anything) to do with these celebrations. I enjoy celebrating these festivals – but so also do many of my friends who have no interest at all in the Injil. In fact, different Christian sects have different days of the year in which they celebrate these festivals. As another example, The Injil records that Isa al Masih (PBUH) greeted his disciples with ‘Peace be with you’ (i.e. Salaam wa alykum), though Christians today do not use that greeting.

      On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” (John 20:19)

      Whether with festivals, churches, images (like statues in churches) there is much, good and bad, that has developed after the Injil was revealed by Isa al Masih (PBUH), that has been pulled into Christianity.

      So though there is much overlap between the two – but they are not the same. In fact, in the whole Bible (al kitab) the word ‘Christian’ is mentioned just three times, and the first time it is mentioned it indicates that idolaters of that day invented the word as their name for the ‘disciples’ of Isa al Masih.

      So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch. (Acts 11:26)

      The people of Antioch, at that time, worshiped many gods and when the disciples of Isa came following his teaching they were called “Christians” by these people. Terms and concepts in the Taurat, Zabur and Injil (i.e. the Bible or al kitab) that are commonly used to describe the Injil are ‘The Way’ and ‘The Straight Way’; and those that follow the Injil are called ‘Believers’, ‘Disciples’, ‘Followers of the Way’, those who “submit to God’s righteousness”.

      I am convinced that everyone should have the opportunity to understand the Injil. To that end I also have another blog/website for secular westerners – those of my culture – at But that site deals with many questions that believers in Allah have already answered (like “Is there a God?”). Since there is so much common history and foundation between the Injil and Islam, with much of any disagreement coming primarily from a lack of opportunity to gain understanding, and since I have had the privilege of having so many good Muslim friends guide me in understanding the Qur’an and Haddith, while I in turn helped them gain an understanding of the Injil, I thought I would launch this website. Inshalla‘Allah it will help believers gain a better understanding of all that the Prophets have spoken. And it will continue to change lives in quiet but dramatic ways just as Isa al Masih (PBUH) taught so long ago about the power of the Straight Way.

      Since we know that the Injil was revealed by the Prophet Isa al Masih (PBUH), and those who fear Allah want to know and understand all that the prophets have spoken, we leave the controversies of Christianity for other places and other people. The Injil deserves to be understood without the complications of Christianity. I think you will find, as I have found, that the Injil will be interesting and challenging enough for us on that basis.
