No wonder the average Christian is so weak in their faith.

Scroll down to Video Archives and listen to Joel Osteen, pastor of the largest church in America, back down and get as soft as cotton candy when cornered and asked to say whether or not Jesus is the only way to heaven. All he has to do is let the word of God speak and say: "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12). Instead here is an example of how far many churches are from telling the truth of God's word and how weak and timid some leaders are in standing and proclaiming the message of the Gospel of Christ.

Hello to all!

Good to see everyone at church Sunday! Nice turnout and looking forward for great things in the church. Hopefully on women's day -next Sunday- we will have an equally nice turnout. We have a new member to announce: DeAndre Thompson he joined a couple of weeks ago and we will be praying for his growth for great things for God. We also want to thank all those who came out to the leaders meeting and we want to encourage more creative ideas for the church. The new video is on hold and will be posted as soon as it is released and cleared from Godtube. Enough for now -I'll see everyone this weeks in one way or another! I almost forgot...LaRhonda was back yea! Good to see her we have been missing her.
Peace in Him,
(I like that "Me" ending cool huh?)

Back and better than ever (at least that's what I think)

Hello people! I have been off of the scene for over a week (sorry about that I know I have committed one of the cardinal sins of bloggers: not blogging often). Haven't had a chance to write but I am back and will be giving my "divine opinions" (don't laugh the pope says he's infallible) to the masses on a regular basis again! I hope the last week or so has been fairly good. We have been having some great studies both in 1 Samuel and in John. We did not meet last week for the Thursday group but hopefully everyone did their reading throughout the chapter. Hope everyone is having a good week and you are reading the articles posted on the blog. I will also try and put up Sunday's sermon notes today so you can follow the series I am preaching on: The Christian: Monday through Saturday. I will also be posting up a new video this week-as I promised Sunday- in harmony with the series of sermons I am giving. Oh yeah before I forget...good to announce our new member Angel Thomas. Hip hip hooray!
Blessings my children! (man... I'm sounding more and more catholic in this post)

Thursday Night

Hello to all! Thursday's study covered a lot of ground. We did quite a bit of reading and a lot of discussion of Jesus's conflicts with religious leaders in John. I thought that everyone did a wonderful job in moving about the text and attempting to figure out the various issues Jesus encountered. Good to see two of the " double trouble sisters" out on Thursday. Where was number three? Only God knows. Tell Cameron we missed him!
See You On SUNDAY!

I almost forgot...sorry.

It was a wonderful event on last Friday night in Long Beach at the Christians In Action banquet! It was a great service and we got to see how a lot of the missionary work is done overseas. Elgin Taylor gave a dynamic testimony of their work and service in the 50 years that he served as a missionary, and in later years as president of Christian in Action. Let us continue to pray and support the work of missionaries with Christians in Action.

I'm Back!

Haven't written in a while but that doesn't mean we haven't been, busy, busy, busy! Had a great time Sunday afternoon with the kids. Sis Jenkins did a great job with the program putting it together. The Tuesday morning bible study was very very inspirational one of the best ones believe it or not. There were only a few there but God was definitely in the mix of things. A powerful moving of God's Spirit took place as He opened up verses like never before! I also want to commend the Wednesday night crew for a interactive study that was very encouraging. I don't recall when we have ever had that much input- great question and sharing!
