Robby’s testimony sounds eerily familiar. He knew God, but he ran from Him. I did the same. Sometimes it’s easier to doubt than it is to have faith. But God is not a God to easily give up on His people. He loves us and He wants us to return to Him. Click the link below to read Robby’s testimony.
A poem that reminds us that God is the same yesterday, today & forever. He still works miracles and He can work in your life.
The God we worship, the God of the Bible, is the same God who parted the Red Sea, saved Daniel from the lions, brought water from a rock, stopped time . . . we need to remember who He is and have faith that He can move the mountains in our lives.
Some organizations teach that the act of baptism is what brings about salvation. We disagree.
Some organizations (like the Church of Christ) teach that baptism saves. They teach that we are not saved by faith. We are saved by baptism. They take it one step further. Say for example that I’m a Christian and I believe that I’m saved by grace, through faith. I’ve followed Scripture’s example and I’ve been baptized. Am I saved? Not according to the Church of Christ. I’m still damned, because I don’t believe that baptism saves. So even though I’ve repented of my sins, believe that Jesus Christ came to earth and died to save me from sin and death and have been baptized, I’m still not saved. Why? Because I don’t believe that the act of baptism is what brought about my salvation.
The following article further explains our translation of the preposition Greek preposition “eis” and reiterates that we’re saved through faith in the Jesus of the Bible.
Some say baptism is absolutely necessary for salvation? Is it? Does Scripture support that position?
This seems to be the never-ending topic.
So many people see baptism as a necessary requirement for salvation. Others go so far as to say it’s the act that brings salvation. We’re on the other side of the spectrum.
We see Scripture, time and again, telling us that we need to believe to be saved. Faith is the requirement. True faith will bring about a heart change. Being saved isn’t about some external act; it’s about running to God, trusting in Him, believing in His holy Word, living in constant communion with Him and being guided daily by His Holy Spirit.
It’s about having a relationship with the Jesus of the Bible.
What is an apostate? Is the Bible clear on the subject? Is it one who believes then leaves?
What is an apostate? Does the Bible make it clear? Is it one who believes in God then decides to depart from the faith? Can a person really depart from the faith? Does the Bible even use the word?
Letting go and letting God doesn’t seem to jive with Scripture. What do you think?
Let go and let God.
We’ve all heard the phrase. But does it jive with Scripture? We don’t think so. Jesus calls us to be active participants in our faith.

A Christian poem about trusting God. He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it.
Vinita sent us a poem about waiting on God. Sometimes we lose faith. We give up on God; we don’t believe He’ll keep His promises. But His Word promises that He who began a good work in us will be faithful to complete it.
Never lose hope! God will never give up on us.

We are not universalists.
Someone recently asked us (based on their reading of our statement of faith) if we are universalists.
A universalist, basically, is someone who believes that all men will be saved, because Christ died for all. While we believe that Jesus died for everyone, unfortunately, not everyone will accept His gift of eternal life.

Should parents who pray in lieu of seeking medical care for a sick child be held culpable if the child dies?
A child dies. Her parents prayed for her life. Friends, relatives and onlookers encouraged the parents to obtain medical care. They refused, believing prayer and faith would heal their child. It didn’t.
Should these parents be held culpable for the death of their child? Should they be prosecuted as murderers? Can parents have faith and still obtain medical care?
