Pastor’s Desk

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Welcome to the new Claysville Christian Church web page. This page is being launched in the church’s one-hundredth year of ministry in the Claysville area. Above all we give thanks to our Heavenly Father for sustaining us through the last century. The church belongs to Him through His Son, Jesus Christ, and the head of the church. He purchased us with His own blood shed on the cross of Calvary and ministers to us and through us daily through the blessed Holy Spirit, God’s gift to those who obey Him (Acts 5:32). All praise to God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We live in challenging times and face a very different world than our brothers and sisters who began this church family a century ago. But
though the world may change Jesus Christ is the same “yesterday, today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8 NKJV) The same everlasting arms that upheld and strengthened our ancestors continue to hold us today. One of my favorite verses in the Bible is “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5 NKJV) It is my prayer that we will
never leave Him, but will remain faithful until the time He calls us home. So let us “Fix our eyes on Jesus the author and perfecter of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2 NIV) as we journey into this next century seeking to follow the Lord Jesus wherever He may lead us and seeking to please God in all that we say and do. May His Kingdom come and His
will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

May the blessings of Almighty God be upon you as you seek to glorify Him in your life.
