Jesus said, “For a brief time still, the light is among you. Walk by the light you have so darkness doesn’t destroy you. If you walk in darkness, you don’t know where you’re going. As you have the light, believe in the light. Then the light will be within you, and shining through your lives. You’ll be children of light.” – John 12:35-36

Our Vision

To be known as Jesus' disciples through actions that are motivated by love for God, for each other, and for those who suffer spiritually and physically.

Christianity (and the church in particular) is all about relationships; building and growing them. We have a relationship with God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit. We relate to each other as the church, the body of Christ, and show one another Christ-like love. However, the church does not exist for the sole benefit of its members. We are here to benefit a lost and suffering world by serving it and meeting its spiritual and physical needs.

I Am What I Am

Popeye the Sailorman popularized the phrase, “I yam what I yam.” Today we say, “That’s just the way I am.” Both phrases seem to imply that there is no hope people will change. Nor should we expect them to. God’s expectations for us are much higher.

Charlie McGee brings us the lesson the morning with scripture from the books of Ephesian, Philippians, and 1 Peter.

We Are Saints

What is a “saint” anyway?  Can I be one or is that title reserved for a select few?  Jesus calls us to a higher plane.  He calls us to e people the way He does, to treat them the way He did.  We can do that best when we are active parts of Christ’s body, the church.

Charlie McGee brings us the lesson the morning with scripture from the books of John and 1 John.

Church of England and the Puritans

While Jesus hung on the cross, one of the first things he said was a prayer. He prayed that the Father would “forgive them because they do not know what they are doing.” This morning, we will look at the word “forgive” in the context of Jesus’ prayer and what it means for us today.
