Faith’s Checkbook: Let Trials Bless

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon “Knowing that tribulation worketh patience”   (Romans 5:3). This is a promise in essence if not in form. We have need of patience, and here we see the way of getting it. It is only by enduring that we learn to endure, even as by swimming men learn to swim. You […]

Madman or God-Man?

by Precarious Yates In his book Mere Christianity, the great apologist C.S. Lewis put forth these three possibilities: Jesus Christ was either a liar of the highest order, a delusional madman, or a exactly what He claimed to be: God made Man.

Faith’s Checkbook: Divine, Ever-Living, Unchanging

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon “BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ABIDES FOREVER.” And this is the word which was preached to you” (1 Peter 1:25). All human teaching and, indeed, all human beings shall pass away as the grass of the meadow; but we are here assured that the Word of the LORD […]

Gems From Pastor Jim 8/7/2018

by Jim Hughes Prov. 26:18-19 Just as damaging as a mad man shooting a lethal weapon is someone who lies to a friend and then says, “I was only joking.” Words matter. Truth matters. What you say affects others. When lies are spoken about another, great harm is done. False accusations can forever […]

Gems From Pastor Jim as of 7/31/2018

by Jim Hughes Prov. 25:27 Just as it is not good to eat too much honey, it is not good for people to think about all the honors they deserve. We do it don’t we? We think more highly of ourselves than we ought to. We get caught up in the thinking of […]

Image Rich, Reality Poor: Behind the Story: Deep in the Heart

by Staci Stallings It’s amazing to me how different life looks if you ever bother to look at more than the outside surface of things.  In our world today we’re all so busy, and we get so caught up in doing things and getting things and having things that we forget what’s really important.  What’s really important […]

Faith’s Checkbook: Word to Him Who Halts

by Charles Haddon Spurgeon “I will save her that halteth”   (Zephaniah 3:19). There are plenty of these lame ones, both male and female. You may meet “her that halteth” twenty times in an hour. They are in the right road and exceedingly anxious to run in it with diligence, but they are lame […]
