Message From Our Pastor
Welcome to Clement Baptist Church!
On behalf of the fellowship of Clement Baptist Church, I invite you and your family to become a part of the family of God. Come and join us as we seek to minister to others in the name of Jesus throughout the world.
Our desire is to see people trust their lives completely to the Lord Jesus Christ. In order for someone to do this, they must first invite Jesus into their heart and receive Him as Savior and Lord. John 1:12 says, "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the children of God, even to them that believe in his name." There are three things one must do to receive Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior.
1. YOU MUST REPENT OF YOUR SIN.
"Repent and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out" (Acts 3:19). To repent is not just feeling sorry for your sins but turning away from your sins and turning to God through Jesus.
2. YOU MUST PLACE YOUR FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST.
"For by grace ye are saved through faith" (Ephesians 2:8). To place your faith in Jesus is not just knowing facts about Jesus but trusting Him completely with your life.
3. YOU MUST SURRENDER YOUR LIFE TO JESUS CHRIST.
"That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your hear that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved" (Romans 10:9). To surrender to Jesus as Lord is not just saying you give your life to Jesus, but giving Him complete control of your life.
Our hope is that you have received Jesus as Lord and Savior. If so, we rejoice with you. If not, we pray that you would soon receive Him into your life and experience the wonderful salvation available in no one else.
Clement Baptist Church is affiliated with the New South River Baptist Association, the North Carolina Baptist State Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention.
May God continue to bless and keep you and yours! See you in heaven!
