WHERE WE COME FROM
We came from humble beginnings. In 1971, we met at a school building but quickly were able to amass a loyal following that assisted in purchasing a small ranch that is where we currently stand now.
WHO WE ARE
- a community of believers
- a multicultural community who celebrates our differences instead of shaming them
- people who really believe in the power of God and want to see others experience His healing and redeeming love
- a group of perfect people
- a judgmental place of religious rhetoric
- people who have it all together or all figured out
WHO WE ARE NOT
Dr. Clifton and Dr. Marcia Clarke
Drs. Clifton and Marcia Clarke are both theologians originally from Nottingham, UK. In their 30+ years of marriage, they have traveled the world as messengers of the Gospel including being missionaries in Ghana, West Africa for over a decade. They have both served as professors of theology at numerous universities and have written a total of 7 books combined. They are the proud parents of Jessica and Joel.
God is real and Jesus is King
We believe God exists in 3 persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus was born of a virgin, crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. We believe in the all knowing presence of God that is with us wherever we go. We believe Jesus is the Son of God.
The Holy Spirit is our secret weapon
We believe that through the power of the Holy Spirit, no boundaries exist with what God can do. The Holy Spirit is our advocate and intercessor. We believe in the Holy Spirit is given to every believer and equips us with spiritual gifts used for the glory of God.
Faith is our Key
Our faith in God is how we communicate to God and grow closer to him. It is what allows us to experience Him in His fullness. Apart of this expression of faith is through worship and giving.
Follow the leader
We aim to follow the ultimate example, Jesus Christ by walking in faith, loving others, and serving. As a result, we believe the fruits of the spirit occur (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, self-control). Just as we aim to deepen our physical relationships, we do the same with our spiritual ones spending time getting to know the Father in a real way through prayer, community, and worship.
The Bible is our roadmap
We believe the Bible is the written words of God in human text inspired by the Holy Spirit that tells a story of overwhelming redemption and love. We look to it for guidance and comfort. We trust its words.
We all have sinned and will always fall short, but gratefully we serve an amazing God who rights our wrongs when we repent.
Community is Our Jam
We exist for you and with you. We truly are all in this together. Community for us means we are the Church as an identity and community of believers and not just as a building.
