Baptism – United To Christ

What Is Your Purpose?

What Is Your Purpose? There is a popular idea that true freedom must mean a complete absence of any limitations.

The Love of The Son

Where God Dwells

Where God Dwells One of the most startling descriptions of Jesus is found early  in the gospel of John, at the feast of Passover in Jerusalem we find Jesus in the courts of God’s temple chasing off money-changers, flipping tables, and swinging a rope whip to scare off the animals. Jesus was zealous for the purity […]

Reaching One Friend for Christ

One Friend For Christ It is startling when Jesus began his ministry, to reveal God’s plan to restore and redeem a rebellious and broken world, He chose very ordinary, still hurting, still messy people to entrust His mission to. Because the good news of what Jesus is doing, and the message of the gospel is not a […]
