The first session video of my Life Study Class, When Forgiveness Doesn’t Make Sense, opened with a moving story of a murderer who found Christ in prison and later sought the forgiveness of his victim’s sister. Well, suppose a non-Christian person murders another non-Christian person. The victim, according to the Bible, would spend eternity separated from God in hell (Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:11-15). If the murderer later repents of his sin and receives Christ as his Savior and Lord, he would go to heaven. Is that fair? From a mere human...

From the Pastor’s Desk 1/26/2017 ~ Night of Prayer

A special Night of Prayer will precede the State Evangelism Conference (SEC) on Sunday evening, January 29, at 5:00 p.m. I recommended to the church last Wednesday night that we transfer our evening worship to First Southern for this special prayer service. In addition to others who will be leading during the service, Charles Billingsley will be singing.   If you would like a ride to the Night of Prayer, please call the church office and request a seat on the church bus. If people sign up for transportation to the Night of Prayer, the bus...

For your information:   Winter is here so no telling when we will actually be having real winter weather.  In Oklahoma, it’s hard to know.  We have spring-like days and then winter days. If the weather is bad on    Sunday, in most cases we will post the decision to cancel on Saturday night or at least by 6:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.  You can check the news stations on TV or on your computer and see if we will be having church.  We will also post it on FaceBook and the church’s website.  We will send out emails to those...

From the Pastor’s Desk:   As we begin the New Year, there are resolutions that will be made that likely will be broken before the month is over; it may be a promise to lose weight, exercise more, break a bad habit, or to begin a good habit. I would like to suggest a few things that we all should do every day in 2017: Surrender to the Lord’s complete control. Read a portion of God’s word and pray. Desire that God will be glorified in every circumstance in your life. Doing these three things will make 2017 one of the most meaningful,...

From the Pastor’s Desk 12/22/2016

Last Sunday morning, I talked about the gifts Jesus came to give. Have you given any thought and consideration to what you are going to give Him? I have often said that one of the best gifts you can give is a generous financial gift to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions; and I still believe it is Christ-honoring way to celebrate His birth. But is it the only thing you can give Him? Of course, there are other things you can give. But rather than focus on the things you should stop doing because you love Him, I want to...

  The following excerpts were taken from an article that was written in 2009 by Dr. Erwin Lutzer, pastor emeritus of Moody Church in Chicago. I pray it will speak to your heart as it did mine:   There will be no Christmas Celebrations in Turkey, this year! Rebecca and I visited Turkey (formerly Asia Minor), where Paul spent most of his time planting churches. It is also where the famous Seven Churches of Revelation existed…and when we visited all seven of these sites…The Seven Churches of Asia Minor no longer exist. I am not...

The Bogota Mission Trip that, at one time, seemed so far away, is now just a few days away. I and the other team members (Johnnie Kay, John and Cindy Cauffiel, David Day, and Mark Roby) want to thank every person who gave financially; over $10,000 was given through offerings and fund raising events. God bless you all for caring and for sharing. If you are wondering about the prayer needs of the team, please pray for: the Baptist church in Bogota and Pastor Sadis the borough of Bosa (pop. 200,000) where there is no evangelical church...
