About Community Bible Church
Dave Laborde has been the pastor of Community Bible Church since 1985. He is a graduate of the University of Tennesse and Grace Theological Seminary. His passion is to serve the Lord and others through pastoral ministry and expository teaching and preaching of the Bible.
Beth is also very much involved with the ministry of CBC. She leads the Kid's Klubhouse ministry (for children in kindergarten to 6th grade) and serves as one of the church's pianists.
The Labordes have three children, Benjamin, Anne and James.
The history of our church
Community Bible Church was officially organized on November 13, 1977 when a handful of believers committed to the Bible Church movement desired to see a Bible church in Paris. They began meeting regularly and soon decided to work toward formally becoming a church body. They soon developed a doctrinal statement and church constitution, and called Michael Slaven to be their first pastor.
In 1978, the church purchased an office building in downtown Paris, which was our location until 1990. Later that same year, the church became a member of the Independent Fundamental Churches of America (IFCA) for reasons of accountability and fellowship with like-minded congregations.

What we believe
We believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, written by God through men. We believe that Jesus Christ is the very Son of God and that it is only through faith in His death, burial and resurrection that a person is saved, that is, forgiven of their sin and receives the free gift of eternal life.
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9, NKJV)
