Church News

  • Sin separates us from God; the Gospel brings ‘good news’

    Vince Lombardi famously said, “Winning isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.” Striking comment. But I wish to take Mr. Lombardi’s comment in a different direction; the gospel isn’t everything; it’s the only thing. What do I mean by that? Everything begins and ends with the gospel of Jesus Christ. So what is the “gospel?” The gospel is translated “good news.”

  • Worship is not a spectator sport

    I came across something this week on social media that I think is worthwhile to share.

    “Twelve reasons I don’t go to sporting events anymore.

    1. Every time I went, they asked for money.

    2. The people sitting in my row didn’t act very friendly.

    3. The seats were very hard.

    4. The coach never came to visit me.

    5. The referees made a decision that I didn’t like.

    6. I was sitting with hypocrites. They only came to see what others were wearing.

    New mission provides

  • ‘We need courageous, compassionate men to preach truth’
