“Love is…. Love is not… (1 Corinthians 13)”

We have all heard the expression, “He loves me, He loves me not…”! We can all rest assured that the LORD always, unconditionally, irrevocably loves us. The Greek word Agape is used by the writers of Scripture to convey the concept of how much God loves us. Agape is the very nature of God and is a Love that is not based on emotion, feelings, or sentiment, but solely on an act of God’s will. Agape is an unconditional love given freely to all without any thought of reciprocation, nor with any strings attached to it. It is sacrificial love personified in the Lord Jesus Christ.

As a child of God, you have this Agape love inside of you.

In 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 the Apostle Paul lays out 15 points to help us determine what God’s love is and what it is not. He penned this well-known portion of Scripture not to be read at weddings, but to the most problematic and immature church that he had established.

Join us this Sunday (2/18) as we allow the Holy Spirit to mature His Love in us, so that this God-kind of love will be manifest in everything that we do, everything that we say and in every relationship that we have.

Super Cup Sunday

Join us this Sunday (2/4) at 10 am as we celebrate Super Cup (Communion) Sunday.  We will see from Scripture how Jesus  partook of the Cup of God’s Wrath, so that we can enjoy the cup of His New Covenant.   All are invited and welcome to attend.  Children’s Church is also available!

Fasting for Break Through (Part II)

Fasting for Break Through (Part II)

Jesus said that sometimes in life we do not get the results that we desire unless we attack the situation through prayer & fasting. Join us this Sunday (1/28 @ 10 am) if you need a breakthrough in any area of your life or if you are praying for someone else to receive what God has for them, as we learn from Scripture what are the benefits of prayer & fasting. This is the fifth point on “Turning New Year’s Resolutions into New You Realities”! (Philippians 3:12-15).

We started the month of January with 3 nights of fasting & prayer. I invite you to join us on Mon. (1/29) through Wed. (1//31) from 6 pm until to end this month in fasting & prayer.

The Holy Spirit’s Role in Christmas

This Sunday we will continue to look at the Trinity’s Role in Christmas. Last Sunday we saw how the Father orchestrated the entirety of human history, with all of its empires and world rulers to set the stage for the coming of His Son, our Savior the Lord Jesus Christ. Join us this Sunday (12/17 @ 10am) as we examine what the Angel Gabriel meant when he said to Mary, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you…” Come to Church this Sunday and discover how the Holy Spirit wants to Overshadow & Empower you to do great things for the LORD! This Christmas allow Christ to be born anew in you! Receive the Word of the Lord and conceive the Father’s purposes for your life.

Christmas is…

Christmas is about Agape Love being birthed into the human race in the Person of that Babe born in the manger! It was His Love for you and I that caused Jesus to cry out to the Father, “Not my will but Your will be done”! Join us this Sunday @ 10 am as we continue our series “Love Is”!  Join us after service for lunch and our Christmas decorating party.  Next Sunday 12/10 wear your fanciest or funkiest Christmas sweater to Church.
