A PERSONAL INVITATION TO VISIT WITH US
In 1976 two country churches merged that go back to the late 1800's: the Elkdale Baptist Church and the West Clifford Community Church. We are now the Elkdale Baptist Church Of West Clifford. In 1983, I came as Pastor and have counted it a privilege to serve God in this community these many years. I want to extend to you an invitation to visit with us. We have the atmosphere of a small old-fashioned country church but still maintain a big heart for people. You are cordially invited to attend one of our services. THE MOST IMPORTANT INVITATION
Jesus told a story once of a certain rich man who invited all his rich friends to a great feast. They all made excuses why they couldn’t come. The man was very angry. He called his servants and told them to go out and invite the poor, the maimed, the halt and the blind instead of his rich friends . They responded to the invitation and his rich friends were excluded. Let me explain the meaning of the story from Luke 14:17-24:
Jesus is that rich man and the supper feast is eternal salvation. Those who excuse themselves are people who have no time for the Lord. He paid for your salvation with his own life on the cross of Calvary and is now in heaven preparing the feast. If you have not received Him as your Lord and Savior, why don’t you respond to His great invitation? Jesus said, “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. (Rev. 3:20).
To respond to His invitation ask Him into your heart and life today..
Sincerely Yours, Pastor Frank Bissol

Please Note The Following Video We Made And Was Banned By Google...
I had to by pass youtube, and upload our video, "The Cure" to our website. Would you believe YouTube banned this video, saying it promoted misinformation about Covid 19? So much for freedom of speech... I guess when I said Jesus is the great Physician and someday He would heal all mankind of every sickness and disease, that is intolerable to Youtube. Only the World Health Organization and The Center For Disease Control can make statements about Covid 19, anything else is disinformation. The first amendment was put their so things like this would not happen. We are in trouble in our nation! I believe if Jesus were walking planet earth today he would be arrested for practicing medicine without a license. I am going to post this on a separate page that you can send as a link to others. Please share this video with others. Jesus said marvel not if the world hates you. You can watch the video below and to share it... Just click on the link and share the page link with others.

HOW TO LISTEN TO OUR SERVICES ON LINE
Since the Covid scare we have been broadcasting our services on line through a service which is called Huddle.team. We have had a few folks in our church who do not have internet and but everyone has a phone. So we broadcast all our services over the phone and internet.. Please note Special Musical Services will not be broadcast.
You now can listen in with audio simply by dialing in on your phone, but if you use your computer you can view with video. You will need to download an app to stream video of our services on your computer or smart device. So it is as easy as dialing in on your phone or using your smart phone computer or Ipad device to view our services with video and audio.
Again Please Note: There are two ways to listen in:
1. To listen in with your phone, Just Dial in using this number (520) 525-8841 With this number you will not need any access code to hear the service. After the greeting you will go right into the broadcast. If no one is on line background music will play until someone else enters the session or the service starts. This is the easiest way to listen to our live services.
When you get to this page click join and then it will ask three questions for you to participate in the service and broadcast.. You will then see this screen. Put your name, email address in and the meeting ID which is (FrankBissol) or Our broadcast phone number which is (520) 525-8841 make sure you click remember me on this computer this way you will not have to go through this each time you join the broadcast.
When you listen or join in using your computer you will be able to see any video information we may broadcast on line. You also will be able to see a video broadcast of the message. This will be especially good for Sunday School projections of maps and various other materials. Occasionally I do power point projections of various points of my messages. You can choose between the powerpoint or the live video. We put the audio archive of these sermons on the website.. We do not record and archive the video.
The recording of our services we make available at our link entitled Pastor Bissol's Audio/Written Sermons ... please go to this link to hear the pre-recorded messages of our services. We have some services archived all the way back to 1987.
We broadcast services at:
Sunday School at 10:00 AM Sunday Morning 11:00 A.M. Sunday Evening at 7:00 P.M. Wednesday night at 7:00 P.M.
