Intentional Opportunities – (Resurrection Day Activies for the Whole Family)
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6 As parents and teachers, we have so many balls in the air at any given time, losing track of what’s most important can happen quickly. With all the business of our days, it’s…Read More
No Jesus, No Thanks!
An atheistic evolutionist would have us believe there is nothing more than matter, yet if matter is all there is, then how would an immaterial concept such as “THANKS” ever originate? “Thanks” has no color, no shape, no texture, and no taste. A rock, for example, is matter in a solid form, yet it cares…Read More

Line-Dancing: Careful, it Gets Blurry…
Observing the state of the modern church is no difficult task. With the church unabashedly looking to (and adopting) the image and likeness of the world, and the world sometimes quite convincingly imitating the church in hopes of proving their own righteousness, the lines can become indiscernibly blurred as to which side is which.

Walk Worthy by John Wesley
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye…Read More

Sins – Past, Present, and Future?
Question: “Does faith in Christ cancel out our sins past, present, and future or just our past sins? Answer: This is arguably one of the most essential and fundamental elements of the Gospel.
