Praise

The subject of praise is one that has always captured my heart. It is said that the command to praise God is mentioned about 250 times in the Bible (Old and New Testaments). So it would be accurate to say that praise is a “big deal” to God.

Often one gets the feeling that praise […]

Faith

The following is a brief list of all that God does by or through faith

God so Loved

What did God give? Nothing less than His Son. This is the love of God, that He gives us Someone–a living person–not something or another blessing, but Him who is all life and blessing.

“And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in […]

Wells of Faith

In all of God’s dealings with man, He asked for (and still asks for), sought after (and still seeks after), and required (and still requires) one thing above all else: To believe, to trust, adhere to, to have faith in Him. 

There is much teaching on faith that, when measured by the Bible, is both unscriptural […]

“I Will Build My Church”

By Jim Cryer (Jim, who was a faithful man of God, was one of the founders of this church and is now with the Lord)

If the gospel becomes a message of salvation that offers escape from hell and eternal life in heaven only, it is an inadequate message when compared to […]

Touching Hearts – Changing Lives

“In every action, we take we are doing one of two things: we are either…contributing to the broken condition of the world or participating with God in transforming the world to reflect His righteousness. We are either advancing the rule of Satan or establishing the reign of God” (from How Now Shall We […]

Order of the Day

Isn’t order wonderful? As parents we create order. We love our children and the life that rises from their spontaneity, and yet we desire those lives to exhibit ordered restraint. How manageable would life be if things were always in place or events happened as we believe they should? Unfortunately, life is not […]

What is the Church?

“I will build my church and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.” (Matt. 16:18)

This is one of my favorite scriptures. God, the all-powerful, all-knowing, everlasting Creator of everything will build (build up, edify, strengthen, encourage, to build together) His church and the gates of Hades will NOT overcome […]
