Welcome to CHURCH@Claremont
A church in the centre of Bolton
where you will be made very welcome,
whoever you are.
A Sense of Expectation!
There is a real sense of expectation in the church that God is doing something new and exciting. We believe that God wants to bring Revival here in the UK - soon - as long as His people will work with Him. Are we the generation who will accept His leading?
We are also very aware that revival usually starts with purification of the Church. It means that each individual believer is likely to be challenged by the Lord to look at everything we do and see whether our actions are in line with the standards of Jesus Christ.
Revival means that we will have to face some disturbing realities as we start to see what Holiness really means and how far most of us may be from it. No longer will it be sufficient to believe and discuss - Revival will effect the lives and actions of believers before it spreads outwards to those who need Christ in their lives - from healthy and revived churches who are living the life!
LETS BE READY!
Find out more every Sunday morning at 10:30.
Will Jesus Christ really return?
After His death and resurrection Jesus Christ returned to Heaven, in full view of some of His followers. He promised that He would return for all who follow Him. He said that the whole world " ... will see the Son of Man (that's what Jesus called Himself) coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory ... and he will send out his angels with the mighty blast of a trumpet, and they will gather his chosen ones from all over the world—from the farthest ends of the earth and heaven". (Matthew 24:30-31 NLT)
When His followers asked Him how they would know that He had returned, Jesus replied that no-one would be in any doubt!
Jesus also told His disciples, and everyone who will listen, that many 'signs' would happen before He returned .. and we can see most of those happening right now! (Read more on the page "When will Jesus Christ return?")
Jesus said that no-one, not even He Himself, knew the date that His Father in Heaven would choose for Him to return - but that we should always be prepared!
The best way to prepare is to start immediately to follow Jesus Christ, to join an active church near you, to read the bible (God's Word to us) and to pray. CHURCH@Claremont will be pleased to guide you on that journey - but don't delay. He could come today!
Don't be Fearful - be Expectant!
For the Christian, the return of Jesus Christ is just the beginning of an amazing adventure culminating in the joining in marriage of Christ with His faithful people (the Church) and the revelation of a completely New Heaven and a New Earth, where sin, decay, sickness, famine, fear and death no longer have a place. That's not a threat - it's an amazing promise!
Someone prayed that we would see more of the supernatural - the response from God was; "You do the NATURAL and I will do the SUPER part"
Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin ... (Zechariah 4:10 NLT)
A Time for Action
Every Monday a small team from Claremont goes out into the town centre to speak about the Good News that God has already sent His promised one, Jesus Christ to open the way for every one of us to have a relationship with Himself. They offer free coffee and tea to whoever will stop and listen - from rough sleepers to early evening diners and late business people. Please pray for them as they go out - that God will bring about significant encounters and that they will be protected from harm - and pray for the people that they meet - that they might experience and be influenced by the Love of God.
It’s About People!
CHURCH@Claremont is all about real people who have found that life works better when we allow Jesus Christ to lead us. We are everyday folk with everyday lifestyles who simply love to tell our stories to anyone who will listen. Come along and find out what makes us different.
" … when you see people praying and prayers being answered week after week, it makes you think.”
Find out what it means to really be loved – by Jesus Christ and by His followers. Join us at 10:30 each Sunday.
“For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent His Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through Him”. (Jesus Christ, from John 3:16-17 NLT)
