    Contributed by Scott Maze on Jun 4, 2021

  • Steps To Christian Maturity Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 29, 2021

    The Bible is not just a reference book. It is to be our daily menu if we want to be mature. It will put muscles on our faith, marrow in our hope and blood in our heart of love.

    There is one calling that every Christian has without exception, and that is the calling to maturity. We are born into the household of God as babes in Christ, but we are not to remain infants. We are to grow up into the fullness of the stature of Christ. The speed with which we achieve this goal more

  • Our Backyard Needs Cleaned.

    Contributed by B H Grace on Feb 1, 2021

    based on 1 rating

    A word we don't like is submission. We certainly don't like it when we feel as if we're being wronged somehow. “Submission” is the key ingredient that enables a Christian to live a good life among the ungodly!

    I’m confident that in the years that follow, there will be plenty of articles and books written about this chapter in world history and in church history.
