A personal inventory as you prayerfully consider service in the Kingdom through CLC Ministries International.
To make evangelical Christian literature available to all nations, so that people may come to faith and maturity in the Lord Jesus Christ.
CLC members come from many different national, ethnic and denominational backgrounds. Our common beliefs and an ability to work with one another are what keep us moving together toward our common goal.
What CLC believes. . .
The divine inspiration and consequent authority of the whole canonical Scriptures
The doctrine of the Trinity
The fall of man, his consequent moral depravity and his need of regeneration
The atonement through the substitutionary death of Christ
The doctrine of justification by faith
The resurrection of the body, both in the case of the just and of the unjust
The eternal life of the saved and the eternal punishment of the lost
The spiritual unity of believers, who form the universal church, of which Christ is the Head
Questions to ask yourself. . .
“CLCers” are not perfect people, nor are we able to enlist the help of perfect people (there is no such person). But we do want our team members to see their gifts being optimally used while meeting the goals of CLC. If you can answer “Yes” to most of the following questions, we believe that you can have a meaningful mission experience with us. You may want to discuss these with your pastor, church elder, missions committee, or someone else who knows you well.
- Am I a Christian who has a growing relationship with the Lord?
- Am I able to use and apply God’s Word?
- Am I actively involved in a local church?
- Does my behavior reflect my commitment to sexual purity and personal holiness?
- Do I agree with “What CLC Believes”
