Mission Statement

We covenant one with another to seek and respond to the Word and the will of God. We purpose to walk together in the ways of the Lord, made known and to be made known to us. We hold it to be the mission of the Church to witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ in all the world, while worshipping God, and striving for truth, justice, and peace. As did our fathers, we depend on the Holy Spirit to lead and empower us. We pray for the coming of the kingdom of God, and we look with faith toward the triumph of righteousness and eternal life.

Join us for worship!

Message from the Pastor

                                                                 “JUST PASSING THROUGH”

     Does anyone remember February of this year?  The economy was stronger than ever.  The unemployment rate was at an all time low.  For the most part people were getting along with other people.  Our country was strong.  We had money in the bank and were looking forward to going on vacation in a few short months.  But then, seemingly overnight, the world changed.  Our entire country was shut down due to the Corona Virus.  Then there were race issues throughout the land.  People became angry.  Businesses were destroyed and looted.  Police were looked at as the enemy, and it seemed as though everyone in the country lost their common sense.  All of this in only a few short months of time.

     Have you ever stepped back and just looked at the bigger picture and wondered, “Why?”.  I most certainly have.  I have had numerous people ask me if this is the end of the world?  I don’t think it is.  However, I do believe this is a “preview of coming attractions”.  But if you think this was bad; it’s going to get worse.  Jesus tells us in the Gospel of Matthew that there will be “wars and rumors of wars….nations will rise against nations….there will be famines and earthquakes….false prophets….lawlessness will increase and many will find their love growing cold.”  Sounds very bleak, but here is the Good News.  Jesus says, “The one who last to the end, will be delivered.”  That means, hold tightly to your faith, and never give up on Jesus!  He is the One that can save us from this world.  Always remember, this is not our home.  We are just passing through.  Do not love the things of this world, because they will pass away.  Instead prepare for you eternal home while you are here.

     My friends, tomorrow is not promised to any of us!  Let the life you live today, be a life that glorifies and honors Christ.  As we pass through this world, spread His Word to those who need to hear it.  Share His love to all that you meet.  Let them see Jesus as they see you.

    

                                                                                  May God Bless You,

                                                                                                                Pastor Kevin
