Community Bible Church Launches New Roku Channel, Free Mobile App

Community Bible Church (CBC), an interdenominational church that has developed a massive worldwide following thanks to online outreach, is now connecting with followers in two innovative ways: a new video channel accessible using Roku streaming media players, and a free mobile app with a host of updated features, now available for download in iTunes and Google Play.

Each week, more than 27,000 people attend CBC’s campus in San Antonio and online church, which reaches the faithful in more than 150 countries. The online church’s popularity is exceptionally strong, with 425,000 Facebook ‘likes’, while the CBC and online church Twitter pages have more than 38,000 followers combined.

“The Roku channel and app are designed to extend our ability to reach and teach people globally in Jesus’ name,” said CBC Innovation Pastor Nils Smith. “Technology is giving us the opportunity to impact the lives of millions around the world, and we hope they will take advantage of these unique tools to welcome the Word of God into their daily lives.”

A new Vimeo video shows a number of ways that the CBC Roku channel brings viewers closer to Jesus, including:

  • Online Church: Music and messages streaming on TV 24/7 in English or in Spanish
  • Online Groups: Join an Online Group from home watching the Bible study on TV
