Meet the Pastor

Jon & Sue Wiziarde have been ministering at Coronado Bible Church since 2013. They followed God’s call on their lives to move to Panama from the church where Jon was the associate Pastor for 20 years. They would love to meet you when you visit CBC.
 

Elder Board

Our Elder Board recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that they are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. They desire to devote themselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Their passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Statement of Faith

THE SCRIPTURES

We believe the Holy Bible to be the total, inerrant Word of the living God of the universe.  The Bible was penned by Godly men as chosen by the holy God as they were inspired and directed by His Spirit.  The Bible is the divine revelation of God Himself to all mankind.  Salvation into a heavenly kingdom is its message and uncompromised Truth its foundation.  The scriptures are given for study, reproof, correction, and instruction in God’s righteousness.

GOD, THE FATHER

The God spoken of is the head of the triune God which is evidenced throughout scripture.  He is the Yahweh of Judah, the Elohim of Genesis, and the heavenly father of Jesus Christ.  He is the supreme creator of the entire universe including all mankind and every living creature below heaven on earth.

GOD, THE SON

Jesus Christ is the son of God who was with God, the Father from the beginning of time as is evidenced in scripture.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a young virgin Mary, and manifested his Sonship and authority on numerous occasions during His earthly ministry all the while being in total obedience to the Father.  His sole purpose on earth was to make provision for eternal salvation of all mankind through his propitiatory and atoning death on the cross.

GOD, THE HOLY SPIRIT

God’s Holy Spirit completes the theology of the Holy Trinity.  The obvious presence of the Holy Spirit is manifest throughout scripture and His functions are numerous.

THE FAMILY

We believe the basic family unit to be one man and one woman in holy matrimony as God purposed it in scripture.

SIN

Sin is basically rebellion against God and falling short of His righteousness.

MAN

The original man, Adam [and Eve] was created in God’s own image and was His final crowning work of creation.  However, as Adam was the progenitor of all future generations, his fall from grace through his disobedience set the stage for all future mankind to be born into a sinful state and consequently are lost and separated from a righteous God.  The good news is that man is redeemed from eternal damnation through his confession of his personal sins, his complete repentance, and his faith and acceptance in Jesus Christ as his savior and His completed work on the cross.

HEAVEN

Heaven is a real place where God resides and where Christ, after His ascension into heaven, sits at the Father’s right hand.  It is where all followers of Christ will eventually reside.

HELL

Hell is a real place sometimes referred to by various other names but what God originally created solely for the fallen angel, Lucifer, commonly known as Satan, along with all the other fallen angels we call demons.  Those who reject Christ as their savior are destined to follow Satan into the fiery pits of hell.
