Clean and Free's mission is to glorify God by offering Christ-centered hope and freedom to those in bondage to life-dominating and destructive behaviors through truth-based training and accountability, resulting in a victorious and joy filled life.
The ministry meets every Monday evening (as needed) at the Church from 7pm - 8:30pm in a group setting that also includes one-on-one counseling if necessary.
The program includes ten principals from Reformers Unanimous (see below), testimonies from people that have been delivered from addictive behavior, a lesson from CLEAN (Christ's Love Emancipates Addicts Now), twelve weeks of lessons to include some from Two Ways to Live and Men of Honor plus a sixty day course from Setting Captives Free that can be taken on the internet with an assigned mentor or in a book at the church with a qualified mentor. All are welcome.
Are you, or is someone you care about, currently incarcerated? Clean and Free leaders also minister to the men and women in the Livingston County Jail every other Thursday evening at 7:00pm. Please contact us for more information.
For more information about Clean and Free and the Jail Ministry, or to make an appointment contact Director Ron Rauber.
1. If God’s against it, so are we (Galatians 5:19-24).
2. Every sin has its origin in the heart (Jeremiah 17:9; Proverbs 4:23; Romans 13:14).
3. It is easier to keep the heart clean than after it has been defiled (Proverbs 22:3; 6:27-28).
4. It is not possible to fight a fleshly appetite by indulging in it (Ecclesiastes 5:10; James 1:14-15)
5. Small compromises lead to great disasters or little sins lead to big sins (Luke 16:10; Matthew 6:24; Romans 6:16).
6. Those who do not love the Lord will not help us serve the Lord (John 5:18-20; Proverbs 25:15).
7. Our sinful habits do hurt those who are following us (Romans 14:7; 1 Corinthians 10:23-24).
8. It is not possible to fight a fleshly temptation with fleshly weapons (2 Corinthians 10:3-5; 1 John 4:4).
9. We lose our freedom of choice after we have chosen our actions. The consequences of our choices are inevitable, incalculable and up to God (Proverbs 5:22-23; 20:17; 9:17-18).
10. God balances guilt with blame. When we accept the blame for our actions, God, by our repentance and confession, will eliminate the guilt (1 John 1:9).
