The Bible is our only guide. We accept the Bible as the full and final revelation of the will of God to man.
We follow the New Testament pattern and example to conduct ourselves that all might be led to a closer relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Elder Joe Holmes and wife Wanda
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Weekly Bible Verse
For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
His Story, Our Story, the Story of Christ
Imagine a child asking the apostle Paul, “Would you tell me a story?” Where would he start? He could tell about his Damascus road experience, adventures at sea, the time he was bitten by a snake, and the great basket escape. He could speak of the time Eutychus fell asleep during his sermon and fell out the window and died. Then there were the occasions he was stoned and left for dead. He could relate his vision of the third heaven. He might mention his authorship of at least a dozen books of the Bible.
Paul could say, “Let me tell you of the time . . .”
The Jews were pursuing me and I had a personal escort of 472 soldiers as bodyguards.
I gave my testimony to the king, and he was more scared than I was.
I mouthed off to the high priest because I didn't realize he was the high priest.
I dogged the Roman government by flashing my Roman citizenship card.
I took on a sorcerer who tried to cast a spell on me.
I accidentally incited a riot.
I spent time alone in the desert with Christ.
There would be so much that Paul could relate. Paul Reese wrote, “What Socrates is to philosophy, and Shakespeare is to literature, Paul is to the Christian faith. There was a total-ness about Paul that is quite staggering.”
But the first thing Paul would speak of would not be something he did but rather, something he received. In 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4 he wrote, “For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures”
And in 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, “For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, ‘This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.’ In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.”
Paul’s story was not his own; it was Christ’s. And his story is also our story as we gather with this cup and loaf today.
We all need second chances sometimes. So many times I've been thankful that I didn't have to be judged by my first attempt. Why is there reluctance to let people try again when they fail? To often previous failures are used as reasons to exclude others from jobs and relationships; God doesn't think that way.... Hallelujah... If He cut us off when we failed, we would be hopeless. He doesn't only allow second chances; He provided a way for them through His Son Jesus Christ. I am so thankful today that I serve a God who cares enough to give second chances.
Recognize the needs in others for second chances, that may be all they need to be effective in the Lord's service. God Bless.
1 Thessalonians 5:14 And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.
Keep a smile on your face, a prayer in your heart, and your eyes on God!
EVERYONE WELCOME AND ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND.....
**Prayer of the Day**
Heavenly Father, may we always listen for your guidance in the soft whispers and feel it in the gentle nudges of everyday life. Help us follow your light when we know it comes from only you. In Jesus name Amen†
The Christian's life is to make a difference. So please do bless someone's day today. Even the smallest of deeds makes a difference.

Ordination Ceremony Minister Brian Taylor February 22, 2014
Acts 2:38 contains these segments, each of which are powerful before God:
3.) Water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins;
4.) The promise of the Holy Ghost to all who by faith complete #1 and #2.
And Live faithfully unto death.
Now why would anyone hate what ACTS 2:38 does for a sinner?
