He is always there, loving us and being ever present in our lives. We have so much to be thankful for, yet we take God for granted. He is always there for us. Ephesians 3:14-21 reminds us of things we sho...

June 2022...GOD IS GOOD!

There is a chorus that goes like this... "God is so good, God is so good, God is so good, He's so good to me! He answers prayer, He answers prayer, He answers prayer, He's so good to me!

"There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved." (Acts 4:12) The most important message that we have is that salvation comes only through faith in Jesus Christ. So what is this message, "Repent therefore and return, that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshment ma...

January, 2022...A New Day, A new Year, A New Vision

Vision challenges us to reach beyond ourselves. It challenges us to live by faith. With a clear vision of what our future is in Christ, no barrier is too difficult.

We can become whatever Go...

Oct. 2021...How to Treat Your Pastor...

Acts 13:2 says,"Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them." The call to be a pastor is a special calling. He is responsible to lead the church as directed by God.
