Gems From Pastor Jim – 11/6/2018

by Jim Hughes Prov. 29:27 The godly despise the wicked; the wicked despise the godly. I think for the most part, we only see this verse partially fulfilled.

Gems From Pastor Jim – 10/30/2018

by Jim Hughes Prov. 29:19,21 For a servant, mere words are not enough–discipline is needed. For the words may be understood, but they are not heeded. A servant who is pampered from childhood will later become a rebel. Everyone needs discipline in their life. We need a firm hand on us to keep […]

by Jim Hughes Prov. 28:2 Where there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But with wise and knowledgeable leaders, there is stability.

by Jim Hughes Prov. 27:20 Just as Death and Destruction are never satisfied, so human desire is never satisfied. There are some things in life you can count on; death is one of them. No one will escape death unless it’s those who are taken to heaven when the Lord returns. Death is […]

by Jim Hughes Prov. 27:19 As a face is reflected in water, so the heart reflects the person. Here is a truth that we must always remember. What is in the heart matters. We may be able to put on a front and fool people, but who we really are is determined by […]

by Jim Hughes Prov. 27:17 As iron sharpens iron, a friend sharpens a friend. Friends are good to have. Friends are people that come into our lives that we can lean on. They support us. They encourage us. They help us when we need correction. They defend us against those who would attack […]
