  • Open Bible Church hosts evangelist

  • I heard someone pray that they wanted peace and comfort in their life for the New Year.
    I understand this type of prayer, as I want the same, much like I am sure most of us do.
    However, Christ promised us a very different life if we want to follow him. Matthew 10:34-35, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword, for I am come to set a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.”

    Every dog may have his day, but if he wants Ike Smith’s respect he better have some good nights, according to a story by Dwain Harris.
    That’s when the action is for coon hunters, and coon hunters are only as good as their dogs.
    Sky High Nitro, Smith’s 2 1/2-year-old registered Treeing Walker coon hound, had sniffed and barked his way onto Ike’s short list.

  • Open Bible church changes service
    Open Bible Church will hold a service on New Year’s Day at 10:30 a.m.

  • I have had two people tell me within the last week how we just need to know and follow the basics of the Bible.
    One of them was a family member and another was a close friend. Both of them basically said we just do our best and stressed that serious focus on understanding and studying the Bible was not really necessary.
    I think this is pretty common thinking for a lot of professing Christians. However, I think the Bible tells us quite the opposite.
