Psalms 35:1-3

1. A Psalm of David. Plead my cause, O LORD, with those who strive with me; Fight against those who fight against me. 

2. Take hold of shield and buckler, And stand up for my help. 

3. Also draw out the spear and stop those who pursue me. Say to my soul, "I am your salvation." 

 

Have you ever needed a lawyer? What about a friend who would stand up for you in the face of false accusations? Sometimes we feel like we are all alone with no one on our side, and so we

The Way to God's House.

 Do you know the way to God’s house?  I am so thankful that God has given us clear directions, no only how to live with Him forever, but how to live for Him here on earth!  His directions are in the Bible.  There are some things we must know that help us to understand God’s map.

 

We have all sinned, that includes you.

Romans 3:10; “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.”

Romans 3:23; “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”

Because our nature

Election Day

Election Day!

Over the last couple of years politics has taken center stage not only in the public forum but in the Church as well. I am hesitant to say this is unprecedented for the simple reason that if people are involved in any organization, group, club, society, or church there will be politics. I was asked once if I allowed politics in our church, my response was, “Do you vote on the Pastor, when He is called?” We are all involved in politics even if unaware. Of cours

Are you known for your “…ism” or your Love?

Are you known for your “…ism?”

Do you understand Arminianism? What about Calvinism?

These are only two of the “isms” that you may have been asked about or heard of. 

What about Molinism, Thomism, Lutheranism, Wesleyanism or Pelagianism? Or maybe you know quietism, congruism, determinism, or traditionalism?

 

In the Christian and philosophical arena today there are debates, issues and so many theological /philosophical leanings that it can be numbing? Theologians debate Theology

True Love Transcends Time

True Love Transcends Time!

Do you believe in love at first sight? I do! In fact, I believe that true love is eternal and therefore “love at first sight” is merely our recognition of something that already exist. I can’t remember a time when I did not love my Granddaughter (or any of my Grandchildren) and why is that? I can remember a time when I didn’t have grandchildren, or children for that matter. But I can’t remember a time when I did not love them. The reason for this

How Should A Christian VOTE?

How Should A Christian VOTE?

As a Pastor and Christian, I am often asked about politics. Surprisingly, I know, since we know that you are never to speak of politics or religion and certainly not together! But, be that as it may, I find it comes up often in each day. As a Pastor, many assume that I belong to one party, those who live in other parts of the country may assume I am in another. Assuming “Southern Democrat” or “right wing Republican” are each a form of prejudice

YOUR SAFETY IS OUR CONCERN!

A lot of people tell us how much they care, and most really do. But, we understand that your safety is an individual responsibility and if you have chosen to stay home and are not yet ready to return to in person worship, WE SUPPORT YOU! We have our services available on Facebook Live and here by using the Sermon Tab above!

However, if you are curious as to what we have done to assist in your return to worship we want you to know! So, here we will

Mortality: The State of being subject to Death

In his own words Benjamin Franklin wrote in The Epitaph of Benjamin Franklin, 

The Body of

Benjamin Franklin,

Printer, 

(Like the cover of an old book,

It's contents torn out, And stript of its lettering and gilding,)

Lies here, food for worms,

But the work shall not be lost, 

for it will, as He believed, appear once more, 

in a new and more elegant edition,

Revised and Corrected

The Author.
