about us banner

Compelled by Christ's love, we are devoted to family, expectant in mission, and renewed by God's Spirit.

We believe that God (Father, Son, and Spirit) created the universe and placed human beings here with a unique role as His image bearers and managers of the earth. As a result of the freedom God gave each person, we now live in a world where evil seeks to confuse our roles and separate us from the Father who loves us and desires a relationship with us. He entered into His creation as the Son, Jesus, and by His life and teaching we were offered an opportunity to participate in rebirth through baptism to once again be free from sin and death and made alive as those who call Jesus Lord and Savior. God’s Spirit is given to every Christian to help us mature in faith and seek His will (Ephesians 1:1-14).

We believe the Church is the community of believers who seek to glorify God and proclaim this message that Jesus Christ has been raised from the dead to bring hope, joy, and purpose to all those who believe in Him. We believe that the Church is God’s plan to make the resurrection of Jesus known to all people and to invite everyone to be reconciled to God in Christ (Ephesians 3:7-13).

We believe the Bible to be the inspired word of God. We humbly seek to read, study, meditate, and apply the teachings from Scripture to our lives.

We believe in Resurrection. Just as Jesus was raised from the dead by the Father, so Jesus will return to this earth one day for a great resurrection when all will stand before the judgment (I Corinthians 15). For that reason, we try to make known to as many as possible that in Christ there is salvation and without Him there is condemnation. As ambassadors of Christ, we implore all to be reconciled to God (II Corinthians 5:20).

When you visit us on Sunday morning you can expect to meet greeters at the door who will hand you a bulletin full of Cloverdale news and an order of events for the morning.  We have a cappella singing, weekly observance of the Lord's Supper, prayer, an opportunity to give to help in various works, a sermon from God's word, and a few comments and prayer from one of our Shepherds.  After a short break we have classes for all ages and welcome you to stay and visit with us.  We look forward to seeing you!

Our congregation is lead by a wonderful group of shepherds (elders) and deacons.  The shepherds oversee various ministries while the details are handled by our deacons and ministry leaders.  See our Shepherds page, or view our Ministry Overseer chart for the ministries they oversee.
