|About||West Bend First Church of God in Clay City Kentucky|
We are a non-denominational group of believers who teach that a "born-again" salvation experience makes each one a member of God's universal church, therefore nullifying the need for formal membership in the local church.
We believe the Holy Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, and that it is the completed revelation of God to all mankind.
We teach that holiness is a realistic and attainable lifestyle, achievable through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, which is commanded by God for all who claim the name of Christ.
It is our understanding that God desires that all Christians serve together in unity with the common purpose of building up His Kingdom on earth.
The West Bend First Church of God began worship in a tent in 1954. The basement was completed in 1955. Services were conducted there until the there till the church was finished and dedicated in 1956. The church began under the leadership of Rev. Raymond Berry and Rev. James Clark. Rev. Clark is still a dedicated servant of the Lord and to our Church.
There have been many changes at the church including the building and dedication of a baptistery in July 1997. The most recent and proud addition has been the construction of a much needed fellowship hall. Even though it is still in the progress, it will soon be finished with another wonderful dedication we pray before the end of 2011. We have many dedicated people working on it to get it completed
