What is the Church?

What is the Church?


Happy Veterans Day! We admire and appreciate our veterans!

I always love what we do at CIL Church, but our services seem to deepen in meaning and impact this time of year. This Sunday, I will share a teaching titled What is the Church? If you are still reading this article, it indicates that the Church is valuable to you. This teaching points out characteristics of the Church that will inspire you to love Jesus and people more. It will be another Sunday to transform!

Christ is love!






Have you been baptized in water?

You have that opportunity at CIL on Sunday, November 27, in both the 9:00am and 10:45am services! Please register here – Water Baptism




We are doing something that has never been done before by aligning with Bless Our Neighborhood partners for the Sumner County Thanksgiving Blessing!

Sumner County Thanksgiving Blessing is a county-wide event providing 1,000 Thanksgiving meals to families in need. This multi-site, simultaneous distribution is the result of multiple churches and non-profits coming together to benefit their community. Together with Feed Sumner, First Baptist Church Hendersonville, First Baptist Church Winchester Street, Unlimited Potential, and Crossroads Church, we will prep, pack, and distribute Thanksgiving meals for neighbors across Sumner County – all for the word of Christ to dwell in our neighborhood!

You have multiple ways to get involved and help make Thanksgiving Blessing a success! See below for all the details!
