The 2018 Bogota Mission team has been finalized; it will be comprised of the Cauffiels, Atterburys, and the Tignors. The team will depart on February 9 and will return on February 16.   We will be partnering with the Redencion Baptist Church in Panama City, Panama and the  Baptist church in Bogota to do evangelism, discipleship, and children’s ministry. A key part of the week will involve evangelism and follow-up ministry in the extremely poor area of Bosa; that is where we got to be a part of an Operation Christmas Child distribution...

The following devotional was written by James Banks and was included in the devotional book, Our Daily Bread, and appeared as the daily devotion for November 6, 2017:   Sometimes God takes His time in answering our prayers, and that isn’t always easy for us to understand.  That was the situation for Zechariah, a priest whom the angel Gabriel appeared to one day near an altar in the temple in Jerusalem. Gabriel told him, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to...

There are daily reminders that we live in a sinful and fallen world; some of them, however, while not daily occurrences, are horrific in nature and are increasing in frequency. Of course, I am referring to the tragic murder of at least 26 people, the youngest was 18 months old at the FBC of Southerland Springs, Texas last Sunday morning. It goes without saying that we should continue praying for the injured and the victims’ families. You may have been among the many people who have thought that such an incident would never happen in our...

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Matthew 7:15 NKJV If you heard the first two sermons in the series Making Sense of Unanswered Prayer, you probably recall hearing me mention some of the false teachings of the Word of Faith movement and specifically, statements made by the popular television preacher, T.D. Jakes. Additional false teachers in the Word of Faith movement include, but are not limited to: Kenneth Copeland, Gloria Copeland, Benny Hinn, John Avanzini,...

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...
