About midweek during VBS, the Lord showed up in a group of children’s lives in a real & applicable way. It was a beautiful thing to watch take place! There was a child, not a Christian, who had been invited by another child, a Christian, to attend VBS. The Christian child started gravitating toward who they knew & were familiar with in fellowship. This left the invited child a little bit of an outsider. It was clearly unintentional. During snack time, the invited child had done something odd with their food. This was probably to gain attention from the...Read More
One of the wonderful things about the gospel is that there are no generational gaps with it. This year’s crusade includes 11 men ranging from 22 years of age to 64 years of age, which is a 42 year span from youngest to eldest team member.

When Israel […]
- The Unleavened ChurchLeaven is a substance, such as yeast, used as the ingredient in dough or batter to make them rise. In the Scriptures leaven represents an evil influence, be it a lifestyle or a doctrine. We find the first Biblical reference to leaven in Genesis 19:3, where it is mentioned that Lot baked unleavened bread and […]
- All Things Become NewWhen a person comes to saving faith in Jesus, the motive for everything changes, because we do things not to earn favor with God, but to draw closer to Him and worship Him in Spirit and truth.
- Jesus Christ Is Lord!The Lordship of Jesus is established in the Scriptures. He was highly exalted following His obedience unto death, by which He tasted death for every man. In that exalted position, we acknowledge Him as Master and Lord. Christianity is more than a creed or a system of religious rituals. It is a Shepherd-sheep, Husband-wife relationship […]
