Does a family integrated church make us holy?

Written by Admin on July 2nd, 2016

“Sanctification, by which our hearts and lives are conformed to the law, is a grace of God communicated to us…”  Walter Marshall, a great puritan preacher of the 1600’s, said these words in a book called The Gospel Mystery of Sanctification where he outlines the essential Biblical teaching regarding how we grow spiritually.

Of those that have come, especially in the past couple of years, nearly all have come from other churches. Because of this, it would be easy for us to become the target of the negative criticism that our church has grown simply by attracting people from other churches. Read More

The Path Less Traveled

Written by Admin on February 8th, 2016

When reading the Bible what do you want to “get out of it”?  There seems to be two different popular paths to go down when answering this question, but we need to look to Scripture for the correct answer. Read More
