CLIFTON BIBLE CHURCH HAS RESUMED GATHERING ON SUNDAY MORNINGS WITH A FEW NEW ARRANGEMENTS!
1. You may bring masks if desired or use one which will be provided - if you feel it necessary.
2. We will not use the coffee/tea cups but use Styrofoam cups instead.
3. Spoons should only be used once and then thrown away.
4. Hand sanitizer and wipes will be available.
5. Seating arrangements will give the required 6 foot separation. We removed one table in each row and separated the tables to give the 6 feet required distance.
6. We should observe the no hugging or handshake principles.
These arrangements are for our good but, ultimately, members must take personal responsibility for social distancing and other related actions. It will surely be good to see each other again after such a long pause and even
though fellowship will be a little limited – it will still be uplifting. We encourage all to attend but recognize that some may not yet feel comfortable in gatherings, even if small in numbers. Please continue to pray that the Lord will be honored and bless our time together.
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.

Dear Saints at Clifton Bible Church,
This Sunday morning I will begin a study on the doctrine of the holiness of God. As many believers, (and I put myself at the top of the list) we know very little about the holiness of God. We come to God with our prayers, we read His word expecting Him to bless us, but we very seldom approach Him for the purpose of being conformed to His image, His holiness! This study will take weeks, probably months so be prepared as we pursue God's holiness. Holiness is God's crown as its the perfection of all the attributes of God. For example: His power is holy. His mercy is holy. His wisdom is holy and it's His holiness that makes Him worthy of all praise! Proverbs 9:10 states, " The fear (Heb.=reverent, submissive acknowledgment) of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Heb.=skill and experience), And the knowledge (Heb.=learning and discernment) of the Holy One is understanding. So to have the fear of the Lord is to have a state of mind in which one's own attitudes, will, feelings, and goals are exchanged for God's! This change of our attitude toward the absolute holiness of our Great God and Savior is my prayer for us in this study. A word of warning: This study will not be a feel good study! If we truly seek to be holy as He is holy, because of our daily falling short of His glory, we will be convicted by God's Holy Spirit. But God, out of His love for us will prune us if we allow Him to, and as branches of the True Vine we will bear God much fruit bringing Him glory! Please lift me up in your prayers as I attempt to lead us on this journey in pursuit of the holiness of God.
Adult Bible Study - 1st Hour Sunday Mornings: 9:30-10:30
Ron Quiggins is currently leading us through The Doctrine of the Trinity. Ron does very in depth, interesting and informative teachings. Come join us for an interesting treatment of this portion of God's Word purposed to reveal God and bring us into a closer relationship with Him (2 Peter 3:18).
"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."

Pastor Dave - 2nd Hour Sunday Mornings 10:45-11:45
Pastor Gant will be teaching/preaching the Doctrine of the Holiness of God & The Believer's Pursuit of His Holiness for the next several weeks, possibly months. Please join us as we delve into this most important aspect of our Christian faith.
Isaiah 6:1-3 (NIV)
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. 2 Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. 3 And they were calling to one another:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”
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!"
