About Us

When you come on Sunday, you will be warmly welcomed and invited to join us for fellowship, Bible Study, and worship. Come on in and grab a cup of coffee before you head to Sunday School at 9:45 am or the morning Worship service at 11.

Our goal is to know more of His Word and to be able to apply it to all areas of our lives.

Come grow with us as we…

  • Worship, praise, and celebrate our great God

  • Become a people after His own heart by learning more of His Word

  • Share His love with others in our community and around the world.

…exalt His name together!

Above all we hope you experience God’s love when you come to CG Bible. We have people of all ages from different walks of life, so you are welcome to dress up or dress casually but modestly. We’re all a little different but together we form a loving, growing church.

Bob grew up in Wilmington, DE, and has been attending church since nursery. When he was a teenager, he knew that God was calling him to be a pastor.

After his first year at the University of Delaware, Bob spent 2 months in Liberia, Africa at Radio ELWA (Eternal Love Winning Africa). While he was still at the U of D, he went to a conference where Dr. Earl Radmacher, a seminary president, was speaking. Bob knew immediately where he wanted to get Bible training. Graduating with a degree in biology, he moved to the west coast to attend Western Conservative Baptist Seminary in Portland, Oregon and graduated with a MDiv degree in 1978. During that time, he met Helen, who was a secretary of a church in Vancouver, Washington. They fell in love and were married 9 months later, in March of 1976.

Together, Bob and Helen served as youth leaders at First Baptist, Vancouver. In 1980, they moved to Tacoma, where Bob served as Youth Director at Tacoma First Presbyterian Church. Later they lived in the Dalles, OR, where Bob was Pastor at Chenowith Baptist Church for nearly five years. Then they moved to Cottage Grove to serve at Cottage Grove Bible Church and have been here over 30 years.

While in Cottage Grove, Bob received his DMin from Western Seminary in Portland. His doctrinal product was completing a Harmony of the Gospels from scratch. He is a member of the Evangelical Theological Association and enjoys attending the yearly conferences with Helen. He serves on the Executive Committee of CBNorthwest as a Trustee. Bob is passionate about teaching God’s Word. His favorite passage in the Bible is the story of Micaiah in 1 Kings 22 and 2 Chronicles 18. He even has a page of this passage from the original 1611 King James Bible.

Humor is important to Bob; he’d be very happy to share a joke or two with you. Other things he enjoys? Playing Settlers of Catan and chess (challenge anyone?), watching Star Trek, traveling, fishing, and gardening. His favorite candy is dark chocolate, with cranberries or raspberries.

Bob and Helen are blessed to have three grown sons, two daughters-in-law, and 5 grandchildren who live nearby; all are serving the Lord.

Our History

On March 24, 1963, Louis (Bev) Jackson and his wife, Helen, arrived in Cottage Grove from Hollister, CA, to plant a church. The first church service was held at the American Legion Hall on April 7th and The Conservative Baptist Church of Cottage Grove was officially incorporated on April 9, 1963. Then followed the work of completing the charter of the church, creating a constitution / by-laws, and electing officers. The Jacksons resigned in April, 1967.

In September, 1967, Earl and Helen Eaton were called to serve and 6 months later the church purchased two acres on Quincy Avenue. With the help of many volunteers, the new church was up and running by February, 1970.

Since then, the church has been privileged by the service of the following pastors:

Percy and Carolyn Kooshian (15 years service, 1970-1985)
Steve and Carla Sorensen (1 year, 1987-1988)
Bob and Helen Singer (30+ years, 1989-present)
