Discover CLC

What to Expect

Thanks for visiting with us online.  CLC is a community of people who are on a journey of transformation.  Our mission is to transform the way people think, in order to transform the way that they live.  Romans 12:2 teaches us: “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Our church doors are wide open to people of all backgrounds.  People young and old, single and families, spiritual seekers who are just starting to ask questions about God, and committed Christians have all found CLC is their place to believe and belong.  We invite you to join the journey!

Our Beliefs

Our church is in affiliation with the Assemblies of God which is a missional fellowship with a powerful focus on world missions. Our relationship with the Assemblies of God provides us many wonderful opportunities to reach out to our world with the good news of the Gospel. As a part of this fellowship, we embrace the following statement of beliefs:

We Believe…

The Scriptures are Inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.

We Believe…

There is only One True God–revealed in three persons…Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).

We Believe…

In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s son Jesus was both human and divine.

We Believe…

Though originally good, man willingly fell to sin–ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

We Believe…

Every person can have restored fellowship with God through ‘salvation’ (accepting Christ’s offer of forgiveness for sin).

We Believe…

And practice two ordinances—(1) water baptism by immersion after repenting of one’s sins and receiving Christ’s gift of salvation, and (2) holy communion (the Lord’s Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. ‘And so shall we forever be with the Lord!’

We Believe…

Sanctification Initially Occurs at Salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christ-like.

We Believe…

The Church has a Mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe ‘the Church’ is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ.

We Believe…

A divinely called and scripturally ordained leadership ministry serves the church. The Bible teaches that each of us under leadership must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, to worship Him with other believers, and to build up or edify the body of believers–the Church.

We Believe…

Divine Healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ’s atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins).

We Believe…

In The Blessed Hope—when Jesus raptures His church prior to his return to earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air.  Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.

We Believe…

In The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.

We Believe…

A Final Judgment will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire.

We Believe…

And look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth.
