Comeback Kids Ministries

"Where we Build People with Love."

What CBK Ministries Believes

Comeback Kids was started in 2003 under the name of "One Way Ministry" by Pastor Joey Bauer. Pastor Joey Bauer was a young man with a troubled past, medical issues, and family problems that seemed to take over his life all the time, but then Pastor Joey was drawn into the Christian Church because of their love, compassion, and forgiveness they displayed where he was attending locally in Burson, CA. Pastor Joey continued to move along in the Ministry and God led him to Stockton, Ca where he currently Pastors, Mentors, and Ministers the Gospel of Jesus. Time after time again Pastor Joey would fall down, make some mistakes or have to deal with horrible things in his life and then one day somebody had the nerve to call him "The Comeback Kid" because he always managed to pull through and get back up after every fall. Pastor Joey loved the name so "One Way Ministry" became "Comeback Kids Ministries in 2006 and we have been proclaiming the good news of Jesus ever since. We want to motivate, and empower Christians to be over comers. We know that men and women are bound to fall and get knocked down, but we here at CBK Ministries specialize in getting back up again, and again, and again.

 

You may ask, because some do... What our Doctrinal Statements are. We are full Gospel and our entire Ministry can be summed up in four words.

 

GRACE

LOVE

FORGIVENESS  

HOPE

 

We believe firmly in the Love of God and the Finished Work of Jesus Christ. GRACE, we are Grace preachers and we believe the rest of the doctrinal divisions, dogma of men, and denominational barriers can be broken down because we all have our mind on the same Savior, Jesus Christ. 

 

The Scriptures

We believe the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments to be the full record of God?s self-disclosure to mankind.  Different men, while writing according to their own styles and personalities, were supernaturally moved along by the Holy Spirit to record God?s very words, inerrant in the original writings.  Therefore, those applying themselves to study its literal, historical-grammatical context can accurately understand God?s Word.  Scripture is fully trustworthy as our final and sufficient authority for all of life (2 Timothy 3:16-172 Peter 1:20-21).

The Triune God

We believe in the one living and true God, eternally (John 17:3) existing in perfect unity as three equally and fully divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19-20).  Each member of the Godhead, while executing distinct but complementary roles in redemptive history, has precisely the same nature, attributes, and being, and is equally worthy of the same glory and honor and obedience (John 1:1-4Acts 5:3-4).

God the Father

We believe God the Father created all things in six literal days for His glory according to His own will (Revelation 4:11), through His Son, Jesus Christ.  He upholds all things by the Word of His power and grace, exercising sovereign headship over all creation, providence, and redemption (Colossians 1:17,Hebrews 1:3).

God the Son

We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son, moved by love in accordance with the will of the Father, took on human flesh (John 1:11418).  Conceived through the miraculous work of the Holy Spirit, He was born of the virgin Mary.  He, being fully God and fully man (John 14:8-9), lived a sinless life and sacrificially shed His blood and died on the cross in our place accomplishing redemption for all who place their faith in Him.  He arose visibly and bodily from the dead three days later and ascended into heaven, where, at the Father?s right hand, He is now Head of His Body the Church, the only Savior and Mediator between God and man, and will return to earth in power and glory to consummate His redemptive mission (1 Timothy 3:16).

God the Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ during this age.  He convicts the world of sin, but convicts the Christian Believer unto their righteousness. We do not believe that a repented believer is convicted or Sin Consciousness but rather of their righteousness in Christ.  He draws the unredeemed to repentance and faith, and at salvation imparts new spiritual life to the believer, bringing that person into union with Christ and the Body of Christ.  The Holy Spirit sanctifies, seals, fills, guides, instructs, comforts, equips, empowers, permanently indwells at salvation, and bestows spiritual gifts to the believer for Christ-like living and service (John 16:813:15Titus 3:5Ephesians 1:224:11-12Romans 8:9-1712:4-81 Corinthians 3:1612:4-511-1319Galatians 5:25Hebrews 2:1-42 Corinthians 12:12).

Mankind

We believe that God created mankind?male and female?in His own image and likeness, free of sin, to glorify Himself and enjoy His fellowship.  Tempted by Satan, but in the sovereign plan of God, man freely chose to disobey God, bringing sin, death and condemnation to all mankind.  All human beings, therefore, are totally depraved by nature and by choice.  Alienated from God without defense or excuse, and subject to God?s righteous wrath, all of mankind is in desperate need of the Savior (Genesis 3:1-6Romans 3:10-19Romans 1:1832). 
 

Salvation

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, as the substitutionary atonement in our place, and that salvation is found in none other than Jesus Christ.  Before Creation, God predestinated EVERYBODY to be saved and granted this unearned grace solely based on His sovereign good pleasure, but it is up to us to chose.  Jesus Christ?s death on the cross was the sole and complete payment for sins, fully satisfying God?s righteous wrath, for each person that turns from sin in repentance and places their faith in Christ alone by grace alone.  At salvation each person is made a new creation by the Holy Spirit, declared righteous before God, and secured as an adopted child of God forever, regardless of mistakes, lifestyle choices, problems or struggling in a believers life. All are sealed by the Holy Spirit until the time of Redemption. (Romans 8:37-392 Corinthians 5:211 Corinthians 12:13). 

The Church

We believe that upon placing one?s faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, the believer is made part of the Body of Christ, the one universal Church, of which Jesus Christ is the Head.  The Scriptures command believers to gather locally in order to devote themselves to worship, prayer, teaching of the Word, fellowship, the ordinances of baptism and communion, service to the local body through the development and use of talents and spiritual gifts, and outreach to the world to make disciples (Ephesians 1:22-23Acts 2:42-46
1 Corinthians 14:26Matthew 28:18-20). Wherever God?s people meet regularly in obedience to this command, there is the local expression of the Church under the watchful care of a plurality of elders.  A church?s members are to work together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ (Ephesians 4:16).

Missions

We believe it is the aim, duty, and privilege of every believer and local church fellowship to glorify God by responding as active participants in the Great Commission call of Jesus Christ to go and make disciples of all nations.  We believe the primary focus and priority of this call is centered on efforts that establish, strengthen, and reproduce biblically-based churches, which will then plant churches that plant churches for future generations and God?s glory.
