" … [A]llows guests to log into its Online Church 24 hours a day/seven days a week in English or Spanish; join an online Bible study; watch archives of sermons; or learn more about the church."

According to Community Bible Church's innovation pastor, Nils Smith, "Each new platform is a golden opportunity to spread the word of God, and that's why we are particularly thrilled to blaze a trail in his name via Amazon Fire TV."
