CURRENT SERIES -
How wonderful and marvelous it is to have an intimate relationship with God. Even
the very thought or mention of such a possibility existing is enough to totally overwhelm
our minds and understanding. Yet, this is what God desires for us and has made possible
for those who believe in Him. It is truly sad for any human being to be born, live
and die without experiencing the pleasure, duty, honor; privilege and saving grace
of “knowing” God. Not only just knowing Him by name or knowing of Him, but knowing
Him in a very personal way; a way that is totally impossible outside the working
of Holy Spirit within the human heart -
The Book of 1 John presents us with a appetizing glimpse into the available wonders and joys of our relationship with God through Jesus Christ the Son. Here we learn more about the nature of Christ and many of the great and marvelous things that He has made possible for those who love Him. We are also provided with additional assurances of our salvation and the power of the cross as relayed by those who were eye witnesses to His glory and power.
This new series of messages based on 1 John begins December 3. We invite you to come and enjoy them with us. We will grow spiritually together.

THE IMPORTANCE OF BIBLE STUDY
Much too often we as human beings accept what we have heard and what we feel without
investigating the validity or strength on which it is based. To our sorrow, much
of what we accept as a factual basis for our beliefs as Christians is arrived upon
in the same manner. We tend to place a lot of confidence in what we think or what
we feel, forgetting that our thinking may change and our feelings may also change.
Truth is truth. Truth is constant as well as absolute. Truth is completely independent
of what we may think or feel. It is therefore vitally important that we base our
Christian beliefs on the unchanging truth of God’s Word, the Bible. God’s Word is
the exact reflection of who and what He is, the same yesterday, today, tomorrow and
eternally. We may place different labels, such as denominations, on the interpretation
and application of His truth, but the fundamental basis of the the Christian faith
and the nature of God as defined by His Word must never be compromised or adjusted
to fit or explain culture, time, nationality, politics or anything visible or invisible.
We cannot recognize what is not truth unless we know what is truth. We cannot know
what is truth unless we know what God has revealed to us through His Word. His truth
and His truth alone is totally time proof -
THE WORD “EASTER”
The move to disregard the word “Easter” entirely and replace it with “Resurrection Day” was motivated with good intentions but the facts surrounding it leave much to be desired. We may use either the word ”Easter” or the term “Resurrection Day” but it is dangerous to be dogmatic about either. The following link from Christianity Today should prove to be of help.
