God wants to heal hurting people.

God created us to love Him and experience His love. In Genesis 1:26 we are told, Let's make man in our image( to reflect our nature) and after our likeness( to operate like us), so He created us just that way. Wow, can you believe that you are made so special by God. Created to reflect God and operate like God in this life... and He gives us the power to do it. When we don't understand God's purpose for us, we can live way short of it. If we don't understand what the Creator created us for, we will come up with our own ideas of why... and that is where abuse comes in... using ourselves and others in ways we were not created for... For example, if you never saw a clothing iron, and had no idea what it's purpose was... you would probably end up using it for something it was never meant for, like a doorstop, or a nut crusher, or a thousand other things. Well that would be abusing the iron, not using it for it's intended use. Same for you and me, if we don't know the reason God created us, we can have a tendency of abusing our lives... or letting others do it... all the time the mighty God of all creation wants to give us purpose and dignity reflecting His great grace, values, and character... It all starts by asking Jesus to give you new life... letting Him put a new heart and new desires in you. To know more of the plan God has for you please go to Becoming a Christian, which will give the full story to get you started on your journey of purpose... I pray if you are reading this right now and need help... you will allow God to take your life and make it better... Listen you do not have to live one more day without hope, without help, without God... and you can't save yourself... let God... I pray His peace and Grace sustain you...

Passion is Growing

The whole church is getting into the new series on Miracles... great reports coming from many... At least 25 came to Christ or renewed their commitment to Christ this last weekend... it was over the top. We were sharing about the miracle of New Birth and that Christianity is not just forgiven, but a brand new life... No other religion can claim that... it is either searching for God... trying to be good enough to be accepted by God... or working for forgiveness from God... but Christianity is about a New Birth... a New Man... a New Life... Jesus said to enter the Kingdom, only one way... You must be born again... so I ask you, " Have you received the Miracle of New Birth?" So check it out this coming weekend and bring somebody with you... we will set up more chairs...

Can you believe for a Miracle

We have started the new series on Miracles and wow it was over the top. Many people came up after service and expressed that they were changed... and are now once again trusting God to do the miraculous in their lives, marriages, finances, and many other areas.. On Sunday we also saw an increase of attendance because many are coming back after the summer break... God's Spirit was tremendous during the whole service. I love being part of a Church that wants God's Spirit to be evident and ever convincing that God's Word is the answer to our every situation in life...
