Enigmatic and Problematic

by Office Secretary

In times of crisis, people are the most open to considering an answer or hope from God. The churches of the world that teach the truth of the bible are often the very means by which truth and hope are disseminated. In the aftermath of 911, churches were bursting at the seams for several weeks […]

Respect for Authorities

by Office Secretary

Respect and decency are missing from every aspect of our common social interaction in America today. Law enforcement officers have been targeted by those who would dump liquids on them, the so called “cancel culture” shouts angrily to stop speakers with opposing opinions, and children are out of control in the classrooms of this once […]

If God Is For Us…

by Office Secretary

We are all conformed to a particular worldview. This worldview is chosen based on our interactions and experiences in life. For believers and followers of Christ, the bible is the foundation upon which we are supposed to build our outlook and participation in the circumstances in which we find ourselves. The bible directs us to […]

by Office Secretary

In a recent poll, 81% of those who claim to follow Christ understand that all believers are responsible to share their faith.
