About Us

The Clearfield Community Church welcomes all who seek and accept Christ as Savior and Lord and involves people of a variety of Christian backgrounds. The word “community” implies a non-sectarian congregational concept. The word also points to a style of relationship in which many Christian backgrounds are accepted and affirmed, forming one body, one spirit and one hope through fellowship in Christ.

The Clearfield Community Church is an active member of the Community Churches of Utah. Our official denominational affiliation is with American Baptist Churches, USA whose national offices are in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. We are part of the ABC Northwest Region which has its headquarters in Post Falls, Idaho. While we are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches, it is not necessary to become a Baptist to join…just an active faith in Jesus Christ.

While the church acknowledges there are many modes of baptism in the Christian family such as immersion, pouring, sprinkling…we encourage persons who become Christ-followers to then be baptized as believers. This pattern is that which we have observed in the New Testament. Persons who have proclaimed their faith in Christ as Savior and Lord and wish to join the Clearfield Community Church are welcomed and encouraged to join our fellowship by transfer of membership or statement of faith.

Opportunities are also provided for receiving communion in a variety of ways.  We encourage persons to become Christ-followers through a personal faith relationship with Jesus Christ.  We offer Sunday School, small groups for discipleship plus fellowship and Bible Study opportunities for all ages groups. Please check the website or call the Church Office for meeting times and locations.

You are invited to join us in fulfilling your relationship to Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior and growing with us in faithfulness.

If you would like more information, contact the church office. Office hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

A Note From the Interim Pastor (January 2016)
My name is Jim Deininger and I have the privilege of serving as your interim pastor beginning in mid-January. I accepted Christ in 1959 in order to please a girlfriend; the relationship with the girl didn’t last, but the one with Him did. I graduated from the University of Illinois where I met my future wife, Susan. Next September we will celebrate our golden anniversary. Susan and I have three children, three grandchildren and an old cat.
In the course of nearly forty years of pastoring I have served three churches as permanent senior pastor, all in northern California, and I have done twelve interim’s throughout the country. Between my full-time pastorates and the interim’s I earned my law degree and worked in the San Diego County District Attorney’s office, but pastoring and God’s people are what I love.
One of the major emphases of my ministry is Bible study. I will be offering a number of studies ranging from Genesis to Revelation, all focusing on how we “do” the Word. As many studies you want I will do; any times you want I will do.
Susan and I are looking forward to getting to know you all, and God bless you richly as we follow Christ into the future.
Grace and Peace in Jesus,
Jim


History

Clearfield Community Church was formed in 1945 by a group of individuals whose personal experience drew them together for worship, instruction, service, and fellowship.

At the outbreak of World War II, Hill Field and the Naval Depot were established in Clearfield, Utah. Almost overnight, a small town of 750 people grew to a town of over 6,000. Many of these newcomers were Protestants in search of a home church. Their search, however, was a difficult one because there were no churches in the valley between Ogden and Salt Lake City. In response to this need, the United Christian Ministry of the Intermountain Conference of Evangelical Churches (Methodist, Baptist, Christian, Congregational, Presbyterian, Episcopal, Evangelical Reform, and Lutheran) appointed Dr. Rollo Speer to conduct Sunday School and worship in the North Davis – South Ogden area.

The first of these groups was the Clearfield group which met for Sunday School in the North Davis Junior High School cafeteria each Sunday. On December 6, 1945 the Clearfield Community Church was formed. This new church would be specifically Baptist and intentionally ecumenical. The constitution, a combination of the best features of all denominations, was read, approved, and the church was officially established.

The first building was dedicated on October 3, 1948. Since that time several changes and additions have been made. Throughout the years, the Clearfield Community Church has continued to grow and strengthen its ecumenical character.
