I am very thankful to have been led to the Clay Church. There is not just preaching going on here but caring for one another most importantly. I am happy to say that this is demonstrated from top down as we all strive for spiritual maturity together with patience and hope. In addition, this is truly a church of many nations as in the new testament. Different people growing together because the culture of Christianity unites us all.
I met Pastor Heintje and Holly Yin at my place of business. The positive attitude from both of them was so uplifting. When I found out this young Asian man was a Pastor, I wanted to ask questions. I was looking for a church. I was curious to know what type of church and people he ministered to. I was drawn to the Pastor and Holly’s story and how they ended up here in Arizona. I finely mumbled and asked what nationality are the people that attends his church? He responded by saying “HUMANS”!! Humans??! Wow…LOL. Humans goes to his church? I was enthused at the Pastors attitude and his sense of humor. I new then that any one who walked into his church, was excepted. We are human and God made us as equal. So I decided I had to check this church out. And I did. And I was impressed. I have been attending ever since and it’s been over a year now. Over the course of my life I have looked for a church that will teach me the bible… with people that would make me feel welcomed, comfortable and accepted. This is what I have found in The Clay Church.
The Clay Church is like a family to me. The first time I met Pastor Heintje, I was impressed by his caring heart and down-to-earth personality. The more I've gotten to know him, the more I realize how much he wants God's best for each and every one of us. The people here are a loving, encouraging, and accepting community who come from a variety of backgrounds and nationalities. Together we enjoy relating to each other as Christians saved by God's grace through our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. We are also finding new ways to serve God and to be involved in ministry as we worship God, study the Bible, and grow in our relationships with God and with each other. I'm thankful for the people I've gotten to know and the blessings I've experienced since becoming involved with The Clay Church.
