    MEMBERSHIP IS NOT AN OPTION Why do some people who have grown up in the church or having started out so well after being saved as adults run aground or drift away from the Lord?

    God has been preparing you for a unique role in ministry all your life – what is it He has called you to do? If you don’t know you need to find out. You do that through prayer.

    What’s in a Name? When I say the name “Mark McGuire” most of you immediately recognize him because he established a new home-run record.

    I like to think that every Christian is born again with a spiritual toolbox. In your Christian toolbox are some basic tools. We all need to become experts in using these tools if we want to become mature Christians.

    CHRISTIAN TOOLBOX BASICS Let me see the hands of everyone who has a toolbox. (interview people “What do you have in your toolbox?” - (next person) “Do you have anything different in your toolbox?” “Why do you have a toolbox?” “What would your life be like without your tools?”) I like ...read more
