Church Clarity & Our Bible
Our Bible believes that Clarity is Reasonable. We are dedicated to uplifting the standard of Clarity when it comes to churches, pastors and their parishioners. We are officially teaming up with Church Clarity to provide our community with accountable spiritual resources.
What is Church Clarity?
Church Clarity is an initiative that seeks to increase transparency and accountability in churches by establishing a standard for clearly communicated policies. We do so by crowdsourcing ratings of local churches based on how clearly they communicate their policies on their websites.
The goal of Church Clarity is as simple as the name: to delivery Church Clarity. To literally map out the Church, and clarify what it is. This requires a different approach to conversations among those who identify as followers of Jesus. Before we can address our differences, we must first acknowledge them. Clarity is Reasonable, and the goal of delivering Church Clarity should appeal to all people, regardless of their particular beliefs, or even if they are not involved with a local church. Counterintuitively, Church Clarity is not exactly for ‘churches’ it is for ‘THE Church’ - it is for people.

Message Highlights: From time to time devotionals submitted by Clear authors will be hosted on the Church Clarity site.
Church Clarity Shelf: A shelf in the app will be curated by the folks over at Church Clarity.
