How to Make a Big Difference

Many people are frustrated by the drug use, theft, and violence in our culture. Others lament the high rates of divorce and suicide.

Christ Has Come

Christ has come. He left heaven where He was in the beginning (John 1:1) and entered the world over 2000 years ago. He came as a baby, called Jesus, born of the virgin Mary in Bethlehem (Luke 2:7).

How to Build a Strong Congregation

How Suffering Helps Us

How many of us really enjoy suffering? I’m willing to bet none of us do, but today I want to talk about how suffering can really help us. We see in Ecclesiastes 7:2-3 that it is better to mourn than to feast and in Matthew 5:4, Christ says, “Blessed are those who mourn, for they […]

How Shall the Young Secure Their Hearts?

As summer comes to a close and young people prepare to either go back to school or away to college, it is a good time to re-emphasize the need for them to stay morally pure and to remember God in their youth (Ecclesiastes 12:1).
