"Questions..."

The grandchildren are at that stage. Questions are coming with machine-gun rapidity. I forgot how amusing and annoying this stage of life can be. It is a somewhat predictable human behavior; after we've done anything for a while we take it for granted. We think "everybody knows this" and we move on to curiosity about other things in life. This is true with church and spiritual matters too. While some people are debating the timing of Jesus' return and discussing the finer points of Tribulation eschatology, we have others who have never witnessed a baptism. They cannot imagine why a church would put a water tank indoors and not use it for a Jacuzzi. I'll just let the reader of this blog, who may also happen to be a listener to my Sunday sermons know this now, I'm going to speak to the people who have basic questions this week. There will be nothing novel. There will be no dazzling exegesis. There will be no funny stories. There will be no "meat." Chances are you will "not be fed." There will be no Power Point. What there will be (God willing), are the testimonies of three believers and the opportunity to witness their confession of faith through immersion. There will be the reminder of death, burial and resurrection. There will be the reminder that the follower of Jesus IS all in and should go ALL IN. There will be bread and cup and fellowship around the Table of Remembrance with the Lord Jesus and fellow saints. There will be giving and praying and singing and hugging and crying and clapping. There will be people who are bored, and people who are seeking and people who were dragged in who do not want to be there. And, angels will be observing and Heaven and Hell are awaiting the response of immortal beings to an amazing offer of life from the Creator and Sustainer of all things. Why do we do these things? Come and see.

 
Welcome!

We believe God has placed us here to glorify Him by “making disciples”of Jesus Christ.  In other words, we invite you to join us in becoming His apprentices. Our process is summarized in four descriptive words.

  • Worship:  A lifestyle of love and devotion to God.
  • Connect:  A lifestyle of love and commitment to others.
  • Grow:       A lifestyle that is producing the likeness of Jesus Christ.
  • Serve:      A lifestyle of service for Christ within the body and in our community.
