WHAT IS C.L.I.M.B.
C.L.I.M.B., Inc. (Christian Life Institute for Ministry
& Blessings) is a nondenominational parachurch
organization that serves the Body of Christ by providing
support to local churches with Bible based training to
lay persons, and ministers.
By pooling the resources of local churches, economies of
scale are created (i.e.,combining resources to have a
joint project or operation that - due to limited
resources - an individual church would not
be able to support on its own).
There are four components of C.L.I.M.B.:
The Center for Evangelism,
The Center for Reconciliation,
The Center for Education, and
The Center for Technology.
CENTER FOR EVANGELISM
The Center for Evangelism has a mission to assist local
churches in developing Street/Youth evangelism teams to
spread the Gospel to the people of Whatcom County.
C.L.I.M.B. helps sponsor and coordinate multi-church -
joint projects (mostly outdoors) for the youth to enjoy
themselves and share the love of Christ
CENTER FOR RECONCILIATION
The Center for Reconciliation has a mission to assist
local churches in breaking down racial, denominational
and intra-church walls.
The seven areas of reconciliation are:
Spiritual - between Man & GOD
Generational - between age groups
Gender - between men and women
Environmental - between man and nature
CENTER FOR EDUCATION
The Center for Education has a mission to provide quality
Bible based education for Christian Workers, Small Group
