The Not-For-Today Version of the Bible

Since the end of the 7th century, there have been over 450 versions of the Bible translated into English!

In My Father's House

John 2:16, "And He said to those who sold doves, "Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!"

Rethinking the Way We Do Church

June 5, 2017 For a number of years, I have been of the opinion that if a strategy to reach people with the gospel, disciple them to reproductive maturity, and involve them in a true New Testament type church is biblical, it will work anywhere and at any period of time.

God's New Creation Was Launched in the Resurrection of Christ!

As we stated in a previous article, Christians should celebrate the Resurrection daily and not just annually at Easter because it is the day in which the “SON” came out of the tomb and all of history was changed forever in that historical event. Sam Gamgee, a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's, The Lord of the Rings is speaking: "Gandalf! I thought you ...

Worshipping the God Who is Eternally Unchangeable- Part 2
