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...

I want to expand on the introductory sermon illustration I used last Sunday. I have both family and friends whose children are employed by major airlines. For a small service charge, the      parents get to fly wherever the airline flies. There’s one drawback, however. They must fly “standby.” That means they’re allowed to board only if there’s space available. While the paying passengers board, they must wait, wondering if their names will be called. They can never be certain of getting seats because available...

This is my pre-election article. I can no more predict who will be elected president any more today than I could just after they were chosen at their respective political conventions. This is the most important  election between the two most unpopular major party candidates in my lifetime. Putting this reality and other important aspects into perspective is challenging, to say the least. The Bible tells us in Romans 13 that, at best, human leaders are imperfect stewards of power that ultimately belongs to God. Therefore, no leader can...

This has, without question, been the most unusual year in my 45 years of voting in presidential elections.  It was recently reported that whichever candidate wins the election for President, he or she will have the highest beginning disapproval rating of any newly elected candidate in history! Unfortunately, some of the people who have concluded that neither candidate is desirable are considering not voting at all. Beloved, exercising your civic responsibility to vote goes beyond your feelings about the candidates. Regardless of the...

An Ohio highway became usually crowded one night and many weren’t sure what was happening. But people had started spreading the word that an image of Christ had been appearing nightly on a nearby soybean tank. Many observers claimed that the image was nothing more than a shadow created by night lighting on the surface of a rusty tank. The response of one driver caught in the traffic jam was especially interesting. When he leaned out of his van window and asked someone what was going on, the motorist looked at him and said, “Jesus...

From the Pastor’s Desk 10/6/2016

Have you ever wondered what God’s purpose is for your life? The good news is that God wants you to know and understand His purpose for your life. He didn’t create you to live without direction, simply wandering aimlessly through life. Sometimes Christians complicate God’s purpose for their lives. As believers, God’s highest purpose is for us to worship Him, know Him, and make Him known. As we walk in obedience to the basic teachings of God’s word, He will reveal a divine purpose that matches His design for us. In Acts...
