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. This one God exists in three persons, Father, Son, and Spirit, who working together, call men and women from their rebellion to freedom in Christ. This truth is revealed in God’s perfect written Word, the Bible. Christians are those who have turned from their sin and self and placed their faith in Jesus Christ as their only hope for salvation.

Each week, we learn more about God and how we, as the church, are to live 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 the church might be built up and guard against false teaching.

As you look around, if you have any questions, feel free to send me an email at alan@whitecliffchurch.org. We are a Southern Baptist Church, to learn more about what Southern Baptist's beleive, click on "About Us" and scroll down to the "What We Believe" heading. 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 look forward to meeting you!

In Christ,

Pastor Alan McElroy
