During a pastoral internship at Sovereign Grace Church of Cherry Hill, NJ, C.B. Eder experienced a growing desire to plant a church. This desire was examined and evaluated by the pastor he served with and the leadership team of Sovereign Grace Churches. After much prayer, they believed God wanted to plant a Sovereign Grace church in the Reading area. So C.B., his family, and a team of 13 adults and 9 children relocated to the Reading area in 2001. Since then, God has proven himself to be faithful in providing for the people of Christ Community as they have sought to exalt, proclaim and enjoy Jesus Christ and his gospel.
but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. -Romans 5:8 (ESV)
