On behalf of everyone who calls Clearlake First Assembly of God Church home, we want you to know how glad we are that you decided to visit us. Please feel free to browse our site and get to know us.
Since the beginning of our church, our mission has remained the same: to make disciples. We do that by . . .
CONNECTING PEOPLE TO GOD
The love of God changes lives. No matter who you are or where you’ve come from, the message of Jesus is all about God’s love for you. As we connect to God through Bible teaching, prayer, and worship, we will experience the transforming power of Christ’s love in our lives.
CONNECTING PEOPLE TO PEOPLE
God never intended for us to go through life alone. We were created for relationship. When we experience life surrounded by others who share our love for God, we’ll not only build lasting friendships, but we’ll come to realize that we belong to a family . . . we’re home.
CONNECTING PEOPLE TO OUTREACH
Every day God pursues us with His unrelenting love. And it’s because of His love that we seek opportunities to reach out and serve others. By reflecting God’s heart and living like Jesus, we give others the chance to want to get to know Him for themselves.
We’d love for you to join us for a service. Below, you will find a list of service times. We look forward to seeing you!
New York New
A great Christian apologist once made
this astute observation by forming
the following question:
“How do you reach a generation that
LISTENS with its EYES and
THINKS with its FEELINGS
Today’s culture believes that
FEELINGS define life.
They have missed the reality that it is
TRUTH that assuredly defines life!
Jesus said that the TRUTH will make you free
and to have the truth we must abide in His word.
God and God alone created all things.
And it is God’s word that declares
the TRUTH ABOUT all things!
“Believing a lie” will result in “RECEIVING a lie”.
To receive the truth one must believe the truth!
God’s word is the truth that gives us faith
in spite of our feelings!
May we all walk in the light of the
Word of the LORD!
What is YOUR feeling about that?!

Facing Fear and Finding Freedomby Joyce MeyerIf you don't remember anything else from this article, remember that fear is not from God but from Satan. See Second Timothy 1:7. Every time you feel fear in your life, it's a manifestation of the kingdom of darkness. I often say in my teachings that fear is the "master spirit." It's the spirit Satan uses to try to rule God's people and keep them from coming under the leadership of the true Master, Jesus Christ.
What Are You Afraid Of?
Multitudes of people never fulfill the call of God on their lives simply because every time they try to go forward, the devil uses fear to stop them. Is he using fear to stop you? Satan uses fear to keep people from enjoying life. Fear brings torment, according to 1 John 4:18, and you surely can't enjoy life and be tormented at the same time.
I want to encourage you to take an inventory in the fear department. What are you afraid of? Are there any areas in your life that are being stifled because of fear? Satan is always going to bring fear against us at various times. It's one of his major weapons—not a cap gun, but a cannon.
Stepping Out in Spite of Fear
All of us must learn how not to "fear the fear." The devil brings fear, but you can choose not to bow your knee to it. David said, "What time I am afraid, I will…trust…in You" (Psalm 56:3). I believe we can say that when God leads you to step out in an area to do something new, or leads you to make a bigger commitment, you may (or probably will) feel fear. However, if you're sure God told you to do it, put your trust in Him and go forward.
I have to apply this same principle to my life all the time. Years ago, we realized that we really needed more office space. At the same time, we needed more employees, which would require more desks, computers, phones, etc. We had a choice. We had prayed for growth so we could help more people. And everything did increase—resource orders, speaking engagements, incoming phone calls, mail, etc. It was God's timing, and He was moving.
We had to make a decision to either stand still in fear or move with God. If we had not been willing to rent more space and hire more people, we couldn't have kept up with the growth. I can tell you for sure that fear tried to stop me. I heard things like, "Joyce, you're getting in over your head." "That's too much money to spend." "What if the increase doesn't continue?" I'm sure you know the recording; you've probably heard it also.
We certainly don't want to move in the flesh or out of God's timing, but when God is moving, you can't be afraid to move with Him. In my situation, I had a choice to be led by my head or follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.
How Fear Works
Some common fears are fear of lack, death, loneliness, people, authority, commitment, heights, germs, closed-in spaces, airplanes, dogs, cats, failure, rejection, being laughed at, and even fear of being attractive.
We went to the library and got a typed list of known phobias—it was four pages long. It even includedphobaphobia, which is the fear of being afraid. It seems that the list is endless. It convinced me even more of how extensive Satan's work is in this area.
Face Fear and Move Forward
Isaiah 41:10 says, Fear not, for I am with you. I believe God works gently with us to bring us out of bondage and into liberty. If you've been afraid of something and desire to be free, the time will eventually come when you'll have to face your fear and not run away from it. Just take Jesus' hand, acknowledge that He is with you, and do it. If you're afraid of people with authority, the time will come when you'll have to confront an authority figure and not cower in fear. God will have arranged the time. He'll be there, but you'll have to choose whether to go through or run away.
If you're at one of these crossroads in your life, let me encourage you to go forward. Don't stand still in terror, but take His hand and go forward. Remember, fear torments and God wants to deliver you from all of your fears.
