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.

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
Beginning Sunday April 28 2019, Pastor Gant will take us through a study of the believers reward at the Judgement Seat of Christ!
How will believers be judged? Do rewards for faithfulness vary? If heaven is perfect, why do rewards even matter?
"My hope in this study is for us to live more faithfully, whether in our conduct, speech, etc.! What we sow here on earth will be reaped in heaven, and all believers should take this seriously!"
"10 You, then, why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you treat them with contempt? For we will all stand before God's judgement seat. 11 It is written: 'As surely as I live,' says the Lord, every knee will bow before me; every tongue will acknowledge God.' 12 So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God."
Romans 14:10-12 NIV
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 continuing the study of the book of Habakkuk. Upon completion of this study, Pastor Gant will embark on a study of the other 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!"
