ABOUT US

We are an open book. We want to be as transparent, as a church, as possible. We are very open with our goals and ambitions through Christ. Feel free to ask us anything you need!


   

     "Since coming to ClearView in November 2019, it is our passion to see the people of our community 'Love God, Love the Church, Love the City and Love the Nations.' We are a church with a life-giving culture and focus on leading people to an intimate relationship with God.

     We desire to lead a church that is life-giving, spirit-filled and brings value to the people of ClearView and the tri-county area (Lorain, Cuyahoga, and Medina).  We believe that building God's kingdom is directly connected to building people. Our heart is to help all generations develop a ClearView of who God is, their identity in Christ, and His purpose for all people" 

Donovan & Sarah Reed, Lead Pastors



OUR VALUES

Love (1 John 4:19), Believe (Hebrews 11:6), Dream (Acts 2:17), Give (2 Corinthians 9:6,7),

Serve (Matthew 20:28), Unity (1 Corinthians 1:10), Honor (1 Peter 2:17-19), Generosity (Luke 6:37,38)


FOCUS ON THE WORD

The Bible is the blueprint on how we should live our lives. We strongly believe that if we follow the Word that we will grow stronger as a community, and closer to God. We rely heavily on what the Bible says so that we may not stray away from the path that God has set before us. 

 

FOCUS ON GOD

As long as we keep our focus on God we can not stray. God has set forth a path for us to follow. He has a very specific set of plans that he wants us to follow, and it is our mission to follow His instructions as closely as possible. We understand that we all fall short of the glory of God. We pray and work everyday to do our very best.

FOCUS ON EACH OTHER

As long as we love one another we will grow stronger as a community of believers. We feel that engaging in fellowship is a very important tool that God calls for us to do as often as possible. If we continue to reach the lost and broken, and extend grace, God will bless us for our efforts.
