We Love | We Teach | We Serve

The Gospel of Jesus Christ

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

The word “gospel” is mentioned over 100 times in the Bible by Jesus and His disciples. Jesus was the source and the subject of this good news. Jesus personally shared the gospel with those who listened to Him and  today He is sharing it through the Bible and those who know and follow Him. He wants everyone to believe this gospel. But why is the gospel needed and how do people come to understand clearly what it means to become a follower of Christ and believe this gospel message?


Thank You for visiting the online home of the First Baptist Church of Cloverdale – Virginia, where “Our Doors are Hinged on LOVE – GOD’s Love – A Love For Everyone”. At First Baptist Church Cloverdale we desire to come together to worship the One True and Living God, to teach people the authentic Word of God, and to disciple believers so they can trust God to cover them in every area of their lives. We strive to equip disciples to reach those who don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Whether it is in our homes, neighborhoods, communities or the world, we long to reach beyond the walls of the church. Our goal is to carry out the Gospel through Worship, Witness, Evangelism and Outreach. Though we are not perfect, we diligently depend on God’s power as we strive to be Christians who by the example of our actions, reflect the nature and the character of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
