Our Pastor

       Pastor Chris Wiley


Objective:

My objective is to minister the Word of God through verse by verse preaching and teaching to a people whose desire is to be fed and then to feed others what God teaches them as we grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ together. The desire of my heart is to shepherd the flock of God through the Word and prayer, with all my life. My wife and I are committed to the Lord individually, in our marriage, in the raising of our children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord, and in the ministry of the church. We look forward to what God will do at Community Bible Fellowship.

Bio:

I had no religious affiliation growing up except to attend an occasional VBS in Southern Baptist Churches as my mother would take us children. I had no interest in church or the things of the Lord. By the time I was around twelve, I heard about the “youth” ministry at the First Baptist Church and the trips they got to go on. I was interested in that so I started attending. The youth pastor asked me if I would like to go to heaven as opposed to hell. I said heaven was the better choice and he agreed. I prayed a prayer, was baptized and then lived fourteen years under the delusion that I was saved. In 1998, I was at a “revival” meeting and understood by the preaching of the Word of God that I had not repented of my sins and trusted in Christ for salvation. The Holy Spirit weighed heavy on my heart and mind. The Lord gave to me the gift of salvation and fruits in keeping with repentance. Since then, the Lord has given me a love for my wife that grows all the time, many years of ministry experience, and the grand opportunity of seminary training at The Master’s Seminary. Praise God for His wonderful and matchless grace.

I have been married for 22 years to Hayley and we have 5 children ages 20 to 10,  3 boys and 2 girls. I have been faithfully serving the Lord in Tahlequah, OK at Community Bible Fellowship for six years.
