I was so encouraged by the early responses to my new sermon series, Making Sense out of Unanswered Prayer. Comments included words like: timely, a God–thing, and greatly needed. I realize an answer of no is not God’s only answer to prayer; wait and yes are also answers. However, the word, unanswered, is typically understood by most Christians as being an answer to prayer which is either denied or delayed. I will address each of them during the series. Some of the sermon titles will include: When God’s Answer is Delayed When God’s...

Preacher and author, Dr. Haddon Robinson, wrote an interesting piece on evangelism and since that has been a recent focus revolving around Share72, I want to share the article with you: When you think of the term evangelism, what picture flashes onto the wall of your mind? A large stadium filled with people? A small booklet with a set of diagrams? A Christian wearing a pin with the symbol of a fish? A zealous believer playing intellectual chess with a pagan opponent? A salesman convincing a reluctant person to “try Jesus”?...

I want to share the breakdown of the tremendous response to Share72:   Adult Classes ———– 58 Youth Classes ———-   7 Children’s classes —–    7 Gen. Officers ———–   3 Worship Attenders —–   2   A total  of 78 people responded to the challenge to share their testimony, a gospel presentation, or simply engage someone in a conversation about spiritual things with one person during a 72-hour period! That resulted in each minister praying...

From the Pastor’s Desk 9/21/2017

Take a minute to read 2 Corinthians 3:7-18.  This passage teaches that Christians should be like mirrors. Paul wrote that our faces are not to be veiled or covered. That makes sense; no one installs a mirror and then places a curtain over it. A covered mirror cannot fulfill its purpose. In 2 Corinthians 3:18, Christians are described as “beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord.” When we behold His glory, we will be “transformed into the same image,” in other words, into the likeness of Christ. You may sometimes...

Would you like to know how to share the gospel with a family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker, or even a complete stranger in a comfortable and conversational way? Have various evangelism training programs like Evangelism Explosion (EE), Continuous Witness Training (CWT), or FAITH Evangelism frightened you because of memorization and/or the gospel outline seemed too “canned.”   Beginning on Monday evening, September 11, I will facilitate a video-driven training seminar titled Conversational Evangelism: Connecting with People to...

What are your favorite Falls Creek (FC) memories?   Experiences at FC began later in my life than most of you. Being raised in Texas, my only camp experiences were much smaller Baptist encampments. Early in my ministry, I had only heard stories of a “ginormous” youth camp in Oklahoma from the churches who took groups to Texas week.   My first trip to FC was during my ministry at FBC in Madill. We used the Johnston-Marshall Association’s cabin. It was like coming to a small town occupied by 5,000 teenagers! I remember the heat,...

Summer is winding down, school is about to start, and an exciting fall is “right around the corner.” Among the ministries that will be resuming is the fall semester of Life Study Classes. There is one study that I have been asked if it will be repeated; I am referring to Dr. Erwin Lutzer’s, One Minute After You Die; a curriculum I used in 2013.   It is an 8-session study that will give biblical answers to questions such as… What do unbelievers experience when they die? What do believers experience when they die? What changes and...
