Jesus Gives Victory!

Jesus gives victory!

After Jesus Christ resurrected, the new church was quick to expand. His new followers called Christians, had the mission of spreading the Good News: Jesus has authority over death! Their greeting to each other reflected this truth.

Is Faith In Creation Important?

Is faith in creation important?

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

In six days, God created the world and all that is in it. Human understanding of six days may be different than six days for our Lord, but time clocks are not the issue.  

The first chapter of Genesis states- “And God said,”, nine times. Each time “God said,”, something new was created. By faith this information concludes God to be the most awe-inspiring painter, architect and sculptor ever to design and produce structure. But how does “God said,” generate life? Continue reading

This wilderness man also preached an aggressive message which included baptism of repentance for forgiveness of sins.   Continue reading

You Can Not Fool God

You can not fool God

Only God knows what is deep inside each one of us. He knows the direction of our hearts when we think, speak and act. I may demonstrate the action of a good deed simply because that is what is expected of me. But God, my Creator, knows me inside and out. So He knows if on certain occasions my conduct looks genuine on the outside but is false on the inside.

God can not be fooled by kind actions or positive words which try to cover up misdirected hearts and unrighteous thoughts. Continue reading

God can conquer your inner villain

Do you ever feel like you live in constant battle with temptation? As though there simply is no other choice but to give in to: immoral conduct, the determination to argue, the desire to get even, getting drunk, the impulse to take God’s name in vain, smoking, the craving to over eat, the eagerness to act selfishly?  The list goes on…
