  • The Nature and Mission of the Church

    Dr. Joseph Capers|Oct 1, 2018

    The symbol for the early church in the early history of Christianity was the "boat." The church was understood as an"ark of salvation" carrying believers safely over the flood that destroys life. The earliest name of the Christian Church was "The Way." According to Owen C. Thomas in his book, entitle Introduction to Theology, the description of the church as the body of Christ appears only in Paul's letters, and it is his only image of the church, except of the olive tree in Romans 11. Bultmann said that the church exists only in the event of...

    1 Timothy 6:12 "Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses."

  • GOD, JESUS, CHURCH

    Henry Davison|Oct 1, 2018

    God is the Creator of Heaven, Earth, seas and all things that live. Jesus is the Son of God who came down from Heaven to teach men and women how to live before God and man and that we should love God and love one another. The church is God’s mouthpiece on Earth and where we congregate together to worship God and fellowship with one another. The church must be on one accord in worship and create jobs, build houses, help start businesses. Let us, God’s people begin a movement to take care of, teach, train and support one another. We can do all...

  • Expectations

    Jessica DeTiege|Nov 9, 2017

    Years ago, I saw a gorgeous hairstyle on a woman who worked in the same office building as my company was housed. Each morning I saw her I would admire her hairstyle. It was cut in a long bob and she would style it in many different ways. After a few months I decided I wanted to take the plunge and cut my hair too in a bob like hers, and asked her for her stylist’s information. After a consultation with her stylist, I pulled the trigger and had my hair cut. It was bad and looked nothing like I expected. I was so disappointed. I wanted to a...

  • ADVANCING THE KINGDOM

    Pastor K. C. Wade|Nov 9, 2017

    2 Corinthians 4:7 — 2 Corinthians 4:10 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

  • Our Children, Our Responsibility

    Dr. Joseph Capers|Nov 9, 2017

    Play a Major Role in the Children’s Development Luke 2:52 tells of the boyhood of Jesus as He increased in widsdom and stature and in favor with God and man. Development is a four-fold process: (1) wisdom-mental; (2) stature - physical; (3) in favor with God; and (4) in favor with man - social. Parents must be greatly involved in the total development of their children. They must be active in the life of the children. A tremendous amount of emphasis must be placed on spiritual development...

  • Reason for the Season

    Jessica DeTiege|Nov 2, 2017

    We experience four seasons each year - fall, winter, spring, and summer. Each season has a distinctive purpose. The spring is the transition between cold and hot weather and most often brings rain, but the rain does not last long. After the rain, beautiful flowers begin to bloom and leaves begin to sprout on trees and bushes. The temperature is normally pleasant. The summer, like the spring brings beautiful flowers. The summer is the season in which you would see most people out enjoying the summer air on the beach or in the park. The...

  • Our Children, Our Responsibility

    Dr. Joseph Capers|Nov 2, 2017

    Obedience does not come naturally. We do not inherit it. It must be taught and learned. Jesus learned obedience through suffering. The Bible teaches children should obey their parents. Also, parents are not to make unreasonable demands on their children. Today, obedience is not often practiced by our children. Often parents do not teach their children to be obedient. Discipline our Children God never intended that children should be disciplined by the courts, but by parents. According to Proverbs 19:18 we need more discipline in the home....

  • Starting Your Day

    Jessica DeTiege|Oct 26, 2017

    How do you start your day? Do you roll over to your phone and scroll news or social media? Do you begin by turning on the radio? Do you reach for the remote control to turn on your TV? How does your day end up going? Does it go smoothly or do you have small situations that consume you? Start your day by being reminded to whom you belong. God wants us to be in constant relation and communication with Him. The closer we stay to Him the farther we are away from sin, depression, and anxiety. Throughout the day as you would a close friend, call on...

  • Our Children, Our Responsibility

    Dr. Joseph Capers|Oct 26, 2017

    Children need inspiration, instruction, and examples. The greatest of these is “examples.” We must teach our children to love God. Parents should teach by instruction and example. Proverbs 6:20-21 teaches “...my son keep the commandments of the father and forsake not the law of his mother.” This Scripture indicates that parents have a great responsibility. Our children will reflect our teaching and the examples that we have been exemplifying. We must take heed of the statement made by the great evangelist Gypsy Smith. He said, “there are actua...

  • Our Children, Our Responsibility

    Dr. Joseph Capers|Oct 19, 2017

    The home is threatened seriously because we have shirked our responsibilities as parents. The Bible emphasizes marriage. God made marriage possible. He performed the first marriage ceremony. Some years ago every young lady planned on marriage and establishing a God-fearing home. Today, marriage is not in the plan of the majority of young ladies. Single-parent families are the majority. The absence of the father in the home is reflected in the lifestyle of our children. What is practiced today is contrary to God’s plan. The home was e...
