Local Ministries

Living life as mission to redeem Birmingham for the glory of God and the good of the city

Our local missions philosophy embraces the concept that our members voluntarily come alongside ministries that are already doing things well.  We want people to use the gifts that God has given them to do ministry wherever their passion lies.  We believe as followers of Christ we are to “do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with our God.” (Micah 6:8)  We love and serve our community because God first loved and redeemed us.  We want to share our lives and the gospel with the people we care about. (1 Thessalonians 2:8)

Below are Birmingham ministries that we support, along with the contact email for a Cahaba Park member already involved in the ministry.
