Our church is made up of a diverse collection of broken, flawed, imperfect sinners who have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus. From teenagers to seniors, blue collar to white collar, east siders to west siders, white, black, and everything in between, we have seen the error of our ways, and decided to follow Jesus with all of our heart. One thing is certain, there is a place for you at The Cleveland Church!
"But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions"
He loved, we love. He served, we serve. He prayed, we pray. You get the idea. Whatever Jesus did, we do our best to imitate. We call ourselves disciples of Christ... not a term we take lightly. And while we are FAR from perfect, we strive to walk as Jesus did everyday of our lives.
"This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must live as Jesus did."
1 John 2:4-5
The gospel. The God of Heaven loved us so very much that he was willing to sacrifice his son. Jesus, God's one and only Son, willfully gave himself up to rescue us. God's mercy (Romans 12:1), grace (Titus 2:11-12), kindness (Romans 2:4) and love (2 Corinthians 5:14) provide the motivation for us to live for him. Understanding the simple gospel has transformed our lives.
"For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves"
