Clyde Gospel Hall
We are your neighbors and friends; believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. This local assembly has been here since 1962. It is the Lord Himself that is the head of His Church. As such, it is His prerogative to establish local assemblies and also to extinguish them according to His good pleasure. At this time, it is the Lord's mind to remove this particular testimony in Clyde Ohio. Due to decline in health, domicile changes and death, we no longer have a functioning oversight and therefore as of September 1, 2021 we are no longer able to meet as a local assembly.
Nevertheless, there is still a great deal of Biblical teaching here so please enjoy exploring our website to learn more about us and about what we believe the scriptures say about ourselves and our world.
The Gospel Hall was simply a hall or building where the good news of Jesus Christ was preached. A local church, or Christian Assembly, is a group of believers who meet together recognizing that Jesus Christ is Lord and that,
What We Teach
- The earth was created in six, literal 24 hour days. (Genesis 2:1)
- Man was created purposefully and directly by the Word of God and is not a product of chance evolutionary processes. (Genesis 1:27) God built into every living creature the genetic capacity to adapt to changes in its environment, while producing seed in itself ‘according to its kind.’ (Genesis 1:24, 25) Some scientists refer to this variability within species as ‘micro-evolution'.
- The first man, Adam, was created in perfection but was ruined by his disobedience to God. As a result mankind is universally and utterly sinful by nature and it is impossible for him to be saved by his own works or religious observances. (Romans 3:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5)
What We Believe
The Bible is God’s final word to man. (Hebrews 1:2) We believe it is Divinely inspired and absolutely accurate from the very first verse. (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)
There is one true God who eternally exists in three equal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:4) Jesus Christ is the only begotten and eternal Son of God, miraculously conceived, born of a virgin, and the only One whose life and nature is absolutely sinless. (John 1:1; Matthew 1:18,23; 1 John 3:5)
Come and See the Salvation of the Lord
If you are not saved, our greatest desire and prayer is that you would seek the Lord while He may be found. The Gospel that is preached on this website is “the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes.” Romans 1:16
God has made His salvation very simple so that people of any station in life out of every tongue and tribe and nation may receive it. We presently live in a day of grace, but that day or age is quickly coming to a close.
This world is quickly moving toward the establishment of a one world government, one world religion and one world economy with Satan himself as its head. Only the presence of the Holy Spirit indwelling His church (called out ones) restrains this from happening. So it is no wonder that believers in Christ are the evil one's object of wrath.
After this age is complete and God's church is complete, God will once again turn His attention to the nation of Israel to fulfill His promises to them of Land, Seed and Blessing. According to the Lord's own words, it will be a time of intense persecution of Israel;
"For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." - Matthew 24:21-22 KJV
At the end of that 7 year period, the Lord will put down all of His enemies, returning to the mount of Olives from heaven. At that time He will set up His Kingdom, ruling from David's throne in Jerusalem. (For a more complete explanation of the coming kingdom, please refer to Dr Andy Woods book and series: The Coming Kingdom
In the coming years (2021 and beyond) until the church is removed from the earth, a great deal of unthinkable evil will be revealed. It should be come clear to you that you have a stark choice to make. If you choose to refuse the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ, you will remain a slave and tool of Satan. You will remain under the condemnation of the Devil. His doom is sure as will be yours.
"And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. ... And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." - Revelation 20:10, 15 KJV
