    God asks us to help build His ONE church - and how we measure things can make all the difference in how the local church turns out. What measuring stick does God want us to use in making the right measurements?

  • How To Be Blessed Part Iii- Build On Christ's Words Series

    The Pastor encourages everyone else but he too, need to be encouarges by others. The objective of this message, is to remind the body of Christ to encourage their leaders in the Lord.

    There is a great need to encourage your pastor in this day and time. This is a generation of unreasonable and wicked men. Paul directs us in the text to encourage one another.

  • Loving Others

    Contributed by Annie Springate on May 26, 2016

    The commandment Jesus left us with is to love God and love others. In general we find it much easier to love God than we do loving others. Why is that? We have an enemy and when we realize his tactics we are better placed to fulfill Jesus' command.

    Loving Others • The Word of God is the most powerful thing that exists in the earth • Consistent attention and with full attention • It is our education If you want to be a doctor you need to be educated. If you want to be a carpenter you need to be educated, if you want more

  • Marks Of A Godly Father (Psalms 103)

    Contributed by Walter Thomas on Jun 20, 2015

    David describes our Heavenly Father in many ways. Psalms 103 is special and on point. A Godly father would do well to emulate the Heavenly Father in these specific ways.
