Our Church, Our Beliefs and Community

The Austin Church – Community Bible Fellowship https://www.austincbf.org/

The Austin Church of God was founded in 1946 in the home of Charles Schnabel Sr and has continuously ministered since that time. The past few years have been a time of great change for the church and our city. Five years ago, we moved to the northeast area of Austin for greater ministry opportunities in a more diverse population, both racially and socioeconomically. The historical multicultural nature of our fellowship continues to be important to the life of our church.

The facility is located on the corner of Highway 290 and Giles Lane, a high traffic intersection on the edge of several smaller cities and emerging residential and business development. By our move, we were blessed to purchase a 9500 sq foot church facility on 2 acres and nearby parsonage (2000 sq ft) without incurring debt. We continue to operate debt free.

Along with our blessings we have experienced deep losses. The Covid pandemic has also taken a heavy toll on ministries, administration and our people who are grieving. We need an experienced shepherd who can lead us to recovery and healing while also reaching out to new members.
