This site is a result of a Constant Contact email that was sent out each Tuesday as we were pastoring. Articles, thoughts and videos were shared with our congregation. There was always a desire to make this more frequent than once a week. It was one and done unless the email shared with or forwarded to others. Therefore the readership was limited. In our day, the Gospel has been so diluted and smoothed that there is a need of many voices to shout out the truth of God’s Holy Word.
So this website is a forum to share the word of God and explore those marvelous things which He has reserved for the church, the body of Christ. The Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians Chapter 2 that which the Lord has prepared for us is spiritually discerned and not naturally received. For the things of the Spirit are not received by natural man but by the spirit of man which is fashioned after the Spirit of God.
A bit here about the moderators of this website. My wife and I have been married for 43 years and we have three grown and married children and five grandchildren. I believe that the mark of a true bishop is how well he is ruled his own house. Without boasting in anything that we had done, but what the Lord has done in us and through us, we can say with all assurance that all of her household are born again, serving the Lord and have the blessed hope of heaven. In 1995 we pioneered the church and served that church for 18 years until March 2013. As we approached the end of the chapter of that church, very wise man told me that often to rebuild something you have to tear it totally down, analyze the parts and reassemble by the plans of its original creator. So in this transition and analyzing time, my wife and I are sharing God’s word in His truths with the readers of this site and the readers with us!
What do we believe? Without sounding trite, we simply believe that the Bible says what it means and means what it says. We do not want to put our private interpretation or to allow our circumstances to determine what the Word of God means. We believe there is but one God, the Creator of heaven and earth and all that in them is! We believe that the Godhead is manifest in three distinct persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We believe that mankind is born of a woman and must be born again of the spirit to enter into God’s kingdom. We believe that sin is a choice for the word of God tells us in Romans and in Galatians that a man can choose to walk in the spirit or by the flesh. We also know by 1 John that if a man is born of God he does not sin. In these last days, many will be deceived by smooth words and smooth false teachers that it’s all good and you’re okay. The only way we can be okay is to be in Jesus! The only way to be okay is to love God with all of our heart, all of our strength, and all of our mind and to keep his commandments. We believe that in the days to come when we pass from this world to the next, there will be judgment. Again in the book of Romans we see that we will be judged by the truth. Jesus said in John 17:17,”Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” We believe that while we are here to live on this earth that where to glorify God, live holy and righteous, teach his word to our children, raise up holy offspring and together to declare His word to a lost and dying world without apology and without excuse.
So thank you for visiting, reading, listening, watching and sharing.
