Other Details:

Cannon Beach Bible Church is located in the picturesque, quaint and world famous tourist
destination of Cannon Beach, Oregon. We are a small, elder-ruled church committed to the
accurate exposition of God’s Word and the living out of the great commission. We are
composed of about 30 members. We are thankful for God’s sustaining of CBBC in an area that
has a dearth of solid teaching. Our congregation spans an 80 mile long section of the Oregon
Coast from Warrenton Oregon to Tillamook Oregon. The community is primarily composed of
retirees, and workers in the hospitality, logging, fishing and dairy industries. The church has
grown about 500% in the last 5 years from 7 to 30.

CBBC’s distinctives are as follows:
● Literal, grammatical historical hermeneutic
● Dispensationalist
● Premillenial
● Calvinistic
● Expositional Preaching
● Cessationist
● The importance of sound doctrinal music that accurately communicates God’s Word and is written by doctrinally sound writers
● We are a unified and loving body of believers that enjoys being spiritually well fed.
● We want to grow in sanctification and Christlikeness.

God has blessed us with much growth in the last 5 years. Not just numerically – we have also
been blessed with spiritual growth of members.

We believe that Christ, not the state is the head of the church.
We share our facilities with a very like minded Spanish-speaking congregation whose church
meets Sunday nights
