It was a little over a year ago that I was invited to speak at a church one Sunday. Leading up to that Sunday I felt the Lord placed a message in my heart which talked about the difference between facts and feelings, and emotions and truth.

If we were to do an exhaustive study on what the Bible says the Church is, we would be unable to carry the book because it would be too heavy. For today, however, we are going to look at three major aspects of the church. These three, when truly ....

When we are working towards something and things seem to not be going the way that we expected, what is the normal reaction of most people? I believe that if we are honest there would be a temptation to quit and cut the losses. For many people ....

In the past, I was the type of person who did not want to feel as though I couldn’t do something. I never liked people to think that I needed anyone else, and I always tried to project the image that I could do anything and handle any situation that ....

God is alive, and He speaks to us. The relationship with Him that He has called us to is a relationship that is to be real and active. So, what does that relationship look like? God has given the example in marriage.

January 20, 2024

There is no doubt that God has given us many things to do with our time here on earth. We are called to be a witness to those who do not yet know Christ as their savior. We are all in some way called to be an evangelist. But, the work does not stop ....
