Last Sunday, Bro. Jerry Billingsley, announced that September 25 will be his last Sunday to serve as our Interim Minister of Music. He and Barbara began their ministry in October 2015 and the months that have since passed so quickly, have been wonderfully blessed by God. However, the same Lord who called them to serve with us almost a year ago, has released them to enjoy full retirement. I am praying that the remaining Sundays in September will be filled with the blessings of Heaven; that many people will be saved and many saved will be...

The Bogota Mission Team had its first orientation meeting with Coordinator, Matt Hofeld, on August 17. In addition to hearing some basics regarding our ministry responsibilities, we heard about a very difficult decision that has been made by the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. The IMB will be pulling out all missionaries from the Americas (Central America, South America, etc.) sometime in 2017. While many of us would characterize that decision as “shocking” or “troubling,” I would advise every reader...

It was a special blessing to be able to return again to the Mt. Carmel Baptist Church where I    began my pastoral ministry more than 40 years ago to attend an annual homecoming day! I was able to reunite with two couples whose wedding ceremonies I officiated; they are still active in the church and also have children and grandchildren in the church. I had the blessing of leading one of the wives to Christ during premarital counseling. I got to see the mother of her, then,   teenage son who was my first baptismal candidate. I got to see a...

The following devotional was written by Chuck Swindoll and appeared on his ministry’s website on July 31, 2016:   Divided allegiance is as wrong as open idolatry. “How long will you hesitate between two opinions?”   Elijah asks the people of Israel. The easiest thing to do when you are outnumbered or overwhelmed is to remain in that mediocre state of non-commitment. That was where the people of Israel lived, but Elijah never went there. He told them, “You cannot continue in this period of divided allegiance any...

When I think of people who have revived a sense of patriotism, national pride, and love of country, some who immediately come to mind include: the first three astronauts who landed on the moon and Neil Armstrong’s famous first words after being the first person to step on lunar soil, “That’s a small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.” Then I think of President Ronald Reagan, whose philosophy of peace through strength led to the end of the Cold War and to the removal of the Berlin Wall. There seemed to me to be a greater sense of...

I appreciated the positive feedback I received from the two-part study in Romans 13:1-7 entitled, Christian Response to Civil Authorities. The most challenging part to process was to obey the words of Jesus that command us to not respond to civil authorities with vindictive words or actions. Unfortunately, Christians often respond to ungodliness and injustice more like lost people rather than like followers of the One who said in Matthew 5:43-44 – You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your...

Brothers and Sisters:   We have reached a critical point in our financial position at FBC; and before I draw any conclusions, I   want to put the matter in perspective. First of all, most churches, including Southern Baptist churches, are struggling in the face of declining attendance and offerings; many who’ve never faced these challenges before have been humbled by the downward trend. We have been among the more fortunate churches in the fact that we have not had to cut or eliminate ministries or staff. Even though we have been able...

Several weeks ago, Matt Hofeld came to FBC and presented an overview of international mission opportunities in Panama and Columbia which are scheduled for later this year. So far, God has led Johnnie Kay, John and Cindy Cauffiel, and me to go to Bogota, Columbia, November 28 – December 5. There were a few things God used to lead me to answer His call: The mission will be two-pronged: evangelism, church strengthening and church planting. Church ministries will include children, leadership training, prayer walking, and witnessing. Church...

The recent tragedy in Dallas that resulted in the senseless injury and loss of the lives of several of their brave police officers saddened my heart. Please pray for the families of these officers and the entire DPD family.  I agree with Dr. Robert Jeffress of FBC in Dallas when he wrote, “This tragedy in Dallas is symptomatic of the lawlessness in our country that is being fueled by a disrespect for police — a disrespect that should be strongly denounced by all leaders, beginning with the President of the United States. Please pray for...
