Welcome to the White Cliff Church website! Here at WCC, we have the privilege of worshiping the one true and living God in spirit and truth. The God of the Bible calls men and women from their rebellion to freedom in Christ. This truth is revealed in God's perfect written Word - the Bible. Followers of Jesus, called Christians, are those who have turned from their sin and placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their only hope in both life and death.

Each week, we learn more about God and how we, as the church, are to live in light of what Jesus has done for us as we work consecutively through books of the Bible together during the service. As divine instruction breathed out by God himself, I am convinced that the Bible should be explained and applied clearly and faithfully each week so that God's people, the Church, might be built up and guard against false teaching.

If you are not currently a member of a local church here in Ketchikan, we would like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our meetings. We are a Southern Baptist Church. To learn more about what Southern Baptists believe, click on "About Us" and scroll down to the "What We Believe" heading.

We look forward to connecting with you! As you look around our website, if you have any questions, feel free to send me an email at alan@whitecliffchurch.org.
