CLIFTON BIBLE CHURCH
Our little church is growing and God is stirring big things into many of our hearts. We hope you can join us in the journey.
Pastor Dave Gant and wife Connie
Welcome! Thank you for visiting our website! Since 2006, Clifton Bible Church has been providing a family-friendly church where believers may fellowship, worship, and learn the Word of God. Our primary emphasis is on teaching the Bible, which we hold to be the final authority of our faith, worship, and practice. We welcome you to stop by any Sunday to visit, but for now please come in and browse our website to see just a bit of who we are. We would love to hear from you.
FIRST WORD - 1st Hour 9:30 - 10:30
During this first hour, we will have a time of interactive Bible study. The format may be different each Sunday, ranging from videos to questions someone may have about a specific passage of Holy Scripture or a persons favorite verse/s and what it means to each of us.
It is our prayer that this form of adult Bible study will help each of us, through open discussion and new insights from the Holy Spirit, as we mature in our walk with Christ.
"Seek the Lord while you can find him. Call upon him now while he is near. Let men cast off their wicked deeds; let them banish from their minds the very thought of doing wrong! Let them turn to the Lord that he may have mercy upon them, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon! This plan of mine is not what you would work out, neither are my thoughts the same as yours! For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than yours, and my thoughts than yours. As the rain and snow come down from heaven and stay upon the ground to water the earth, and cause the grain to grow and to produce seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry, so also is my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It shall accomplish all I want it to and prosper everywhere I send it."
Isaiah 55:6-11 TLB
Pastor Dave - 2nd Hour Sunday Mornings 10:45-11:30
Pastor Gant will be teaching/preaching from the book of Revelation for the next several weeks, possibly months. Please join us as we learn and gain insight into God's Holy Revelation.
Revelation 1:3 (NIV)
3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.
I Samuel 2:2 (NIV)
“There is no one holy like the Lord;
there is no one besides you;
there is no Rock like our God.
I Peter 1:14-16 (NIV)
14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. 15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
Wednesday evening activities will resume at a later date.
" In the study of Scripture, it is important to understand that scriptural revelation falls into well-defined periods of time. These are clearly separated and the recognition of these divisions and their divine purposes constitute one of the important factors in true and accurate interpretation of the Scriptures. These divisions are termed " dispensations", and in successive periods of time different dispensations can be observed. A dispensation can be defined as a stage in the progressive revelation of God constituting a distinctive stewardship or rule of life. Apart from the knowledge of dispensational truth, the believer will not be accurately adjusted to present purpose and will of God in the world. As we study we will see seven major dispensations in the scriptures that are evident. We are now in the sixth dispensation called grace and this time will end with the rapture of the church. The final dispensation will be the millennial kingdom of Christ. Along with this study of dispensations, we will also look at covenants God made with man during those different time periods.We look forward to seeing you!"
