  • Like shepherds

    January 8 2019 by Cameron McGill | with 0 comments

  • Helping others find ‘newness of life’

    January 4 2019 by Mark Snowden | with 0 comments

    How people learn is important. How they progress toward belief and action is more important.  A white-haired man was introduced to me after preaching. He was starting a church in the next town over but his comment startled me. “Mark, I...

  • 2.8 billion lost people & you

    January 2 2019 by Keith Shorter | with 0 comments

    Have you ever stood face to face with someone who has never heard of the name of Jesus? If so, it is not an experience you will soon forget.   Several years ago, a family from our church was serving as Christian workers in the mountains of...

  • As we face a new year, some of the issues churches will likely need to address haven’t changed. On the other hand, we seldom address these issues unless we’re reminded to consider them.  Here are some of those issues I’m...

    December 19 2018 by Autumn Wall | with 0 comments

  • A wounded warrior’s baptism

    December 17 2018 by Jeff Iorg | with 0 comments

    Over the years, a few people have asked me for a private baptism experience. I have always declined.   A private ceremony undermines key purposes of baptism – a public witness of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus and public...

  • CHRISTMAS: The reality of God’s favor

    December 14 2018 by J.D. Greear | with 0 comments

  • An ever-escalating identity crisis

    December 5 2018 by Charles Patrick | with 0 comments

    Man has been plagued with the desire to “play God” since Genesis 3. This includes promoting “imago” self rather than “imago Dei.” That is, culture is obsessed with representing self, according to one’s own...

  • I’m in. Are you?

    December 5 2018 by Tony Wolfe | with 0 comments

    No doubt the 120 believers in Jerusalem’s First Downtown Church Plant, in Acts Chapter 1, were uneasy. The commission Jesus had given them was completely impossible. Unless, of course, God wanted to do something fresh, new and maybe even a...

    November 29 2018 by Brian Hobbs | with 0 comments

    The 2018 midterm elections saw many winners and losers. Yet the much-discussed Nov. 6 vote had one big winner that some people are not talking about.   That “winner” is marijuana, which is actually a...
