The church of the Lord Jesus Christ was established by Christ and purchased with His own blood. As the church, we are to continue the work of Christ on the earth.
The Apostle Paul speaks of the church as a body made up of many parts yet working together for the same purpose. We see this pictured in the book of Acts. Chapter 2:44-47 says the church was “together and had all things in common; and sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men as every man had need. And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, praising God, and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.” Today, the Cooperative Program is an excellent way that the church works together in unity and selflessness to continue the work of Jesus in the world.
The Cooperative Program has significantly aided Clear Creek Baptist Bible College as the institution equips ministers for Christian service.
The Cooperative Program helps Clear Creek in several ways.
The money received through the Cooperative Program lowers student tuition making it more affordable to receive the education students need.
Cooperative Program dollars are also used for providing students with scholarships. This is a great help for students who may not have the financial means necessary to pay for higher education.
As a student myself, I have personally been greatly helped through financial aid to pursue God’s call. Day-to-day operations of the school and projects, such as renovating Moore Hall, are also aided by Cooperative Program dollars.
Clear Creek Baptist Bible College would not be able to do these things without the support of local churches through the Cooperative Program. On behalf of the college and personally, I would like to thank you, and God bless you. May Clear Creek Baptist Bible College be found faithful and thankful to God for His provision.
