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.
Adult Bible Study - Sunday mornings: 9:15-10:15am
Ron Quiggins is currently leading us through a study of Isaiah. 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."
Isaiah 55:6-11 TLB
Pastor Dave - 2nd Hour Sunday Mornings 10:30-11:30
Pastor Gant is currently leading us through I Timothy, one of three Pastoral Letters written by the apostle Paul.
1 Timothy 4:1-8 New Living Translation (NLT)
Warnings against False Teachers
4 Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last times some will turn away from the true faith; they will follow deceptive spirits and teachings that come from demons. 2 These people are hypocrites and liars, and their consciences are dead. 3 They will say it is wrong to be married and wrong to eat certain foods. But God created those foods to be eaten with thanks by faithful people who know the truth. 4 Since everything God created is good, we should not reject any of it but receive it with thanks. 5 For we know it is made acceptable[b] by the word of God and prayer.
A Good Servant of Christ Jesus
6 If you explain these things to the brothers and sisters,[c] Timothy, you will be a worthy servant of Christ Jesus, one who is nourished by the message of faith and the good teaching you have followed. 7 Do not waste time arguing over godless ideas and old wives’ tales. Instead, train yourself to be godly. 8 “Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.”
We also meet every Wednesday evening from 7-8 pm and welcome everyone to join us for Bible study, prayer, worship and fellowship!
Pastor Gant is currently teaching from the Minor Prophets of the Old Testament.
"The 12 Minor Prophets, called "The Book of the Twelve" in the Hebrew Bible, are just as important as the Major Prophets. They are called "minor" because of the shorter length of the books. The Minor Prophets also brought God's word to the people regarding judgement and hope."
" 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!"
