We Are Free!

February 2, 2012 by


‘Sin is not a disqualification from the things of God. But, rather, sin is an INDICATION of where you must surrender your heart.’ -unknown When we struggle with a particular temptation we must realize that we have been given the power by God to overcome it. Jesus set us free from the power of sin! […]

Simple Ministry to a Lost World

July 25, 2011 by


Here is my attempt to simplify the ministry that everyone in the church has been called to join. If everyone in the church is in full-time ministry (and we are supposed to be), then what is our ministry?  We are in the ministry of sharing with the lost world the relationship we have with Jesus.  […]

Coming from a background where it was not necessarily taught, but totally understood, that God doesn’t really speak anymore, I understand anyone who does […]

Growing Faith

December 4, 2010 by


I have been met head on with a test of faith.  This I know without a doubt: What I thought I knew about the strength of my faith was false and arrogant and I have thrown it out the window. I can’t believe the goodness of God to meet us with tests exactly where our […]

Our Experience vs The Truth: Part 3

November 30, 2010 by


I realized that I didn’t make it clear why I titled this series ‘Our Experience vs. The Truth.’  The point of the title is because we base our theology on our experiences.   Our theology CANNOT be determined by our experiences. Jesus told us that he taught in parables to keep truth hidden so that only […]
