Scripture teaches that the world will know that we are Christians by our love. Love in this way is the measure of every activity within our church. This love exudes from the community that one experiences within the body but is also encountered in our passionate worship and preaching. We aim to not only revolutionize one's expectations of church but to visibly engage the world (global) with the measure of Love that God has bestowed upon us. At CLC showing God's love is one of our highest indicators of success.
