Who are we?

Clearview Baptist Church was established in 2003. The first Sunday
worship service was August 3, 2003 and with 29 charter members
Clearview began its work in the Higdon community.


With the faithful giving of it’s congregation, in less than three short
years the ministry became debt-free and celebrated with a note-burning
service in 2006.

The original charter of Clearview Baptist Church began in 1983 with its first pastor, Bro. Leon Cloud. Unforseen circumstances caused the
building to be vacated for several years before the current charter
revived the ministry. Bro. Leon and his wife, Sister Patsy are current
members today.

Clearview is an Independent Baptist Church whose mission is to fulfill
the command given by Jesus Christ Himself.

Matthew 28:18-20 (KJV) - “And Jesus came and spake unto them,
saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.   Go ye
therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:   Teaching them to
observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


Mark 16:15 (KJV) - “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world,
and preach the gospel to every creature.”

The families of Clearview have enlisted in the belief that we have been
called to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ to gather the harvest of
souls for His Kingdom. Matthew 9:37-38 (KJV) - “Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.”

Our greatest desire is for people of all ages to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We want to help them to develop that personal
relationship. We will do this by the instruction and truths found in
God’s Holy Word!



We believe the Holy Bible is inspired by God and is without errors.

- We believe in the incarnation of God in Jesus Christ.
- We believe in the Holy Trinity - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
- We Believe in the sacrificial death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We further believe in His imminent return.
- We believe in the sanctity of human life, and that all must be born again “saved from sin”.
- We believe that we must share the gospel message with all people.

Major Ordinances we practice:


The Lord’s Supper

- The Lord’s Supper (referred to as “Communion”) is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members of the church partake of the bread and the wine to memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate his second coming.
- We believe in open communion, but only believers may partake. Matthew 26:26-30 (KJV) - “And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;   For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.   But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom. And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.”

Believer’s Baptism

- Baptism symbolizes that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
- It is an outward expression of the inward possession.
- It identifies you with Christ through His death, burial and resurrection.
- It is your obedience to His command to be baptized by submersion.

Matthew 3:13-17 (KJV) - “Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.   But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?   And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:   And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”



God’s Plan of Salvation

“What must I do to be saved?”

Acts 16:31 (KJV) - “And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. There is no salvation apart from a personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.

Romans 3:23 (KJV) - “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”

Romans 6:23 (KJV) - “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Romans 10:9-13 (KJV) - “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.   For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

John 3:14-18 (KJV) - “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever elieveth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”

Revelation 3:20 (KJV) - “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”
