All You Need Is Love!

by Pastor Bill
All You Need Is

The same sentiment made famous by the Beatles in 1967, is again becoming very popular among some Christians and Churches today.  And why not?   One of the first words that should come to mind when thinking of the Christian faith is LOVE.  And the idea that all we really need to do is concentrate on […]

Do We Still Need The Altars?

by Pastor Bill

Without question, the most neglected piece of furniture in most churches today is the altar.  In fact it saddens me to tell you that many churches have completely done away with them.  You have to wonder why.  Could it be that we are not seeing enough “lost” souls coming in and being saved to make […]

“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13   I’m sitting here (minding my own […]

Open your heart and listen to […]

Make Yourself at Home

by Sheri

When your a guest you’re limited in what you do, see and have charge in. For instance, when we need […]

Jail Breaker

by Sheri

Philippians 1:12-30 In these scriptures Paul reassures the Philippi church not to be discouraged with his imprisonment. OPPORTUNITY IS KNOCKING Paul took the opportunity to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ no matter his situation; he also encouraged everyone to do the same. In this manner those in the Lord Jesus Christ can be encouraged […]
