Our Mission...... As men, women, and children united in faith in Christ Jesus, we believe he commanded us to “go and make disciples.” We therefore will proclaim the Gospel of Christ through our words and actions to the community, campus, and others. We will teach God’s word in its truth and purity to help each other grow and mature in faith preparing us, God’s people, for “works of service.”

Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! The truth of God's Word is often opposed in this world, and when it is, the Christian may suffer. Believers can expect opposition from prophets and other children of darkness. Yet, throughout these struggles, the Christian knows that he will ultimately attain the harvest of righteousness.
August 7, 2016 Do All Things Really Work for My Good?
Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! To know Christ in faith is the meaning and purpose of this life. Jesus tells the parable of a "fool" who thought the amount of material possessions he had were what gave his life value. The writer of Ecclesiastes and Paul also warn against letting the things of this world blind us to our real goal- eternal life.
Jesus told his disciples of his coming suffering, death, and resurrection. Peter's clear confession of Christ in the face of so much false information about him is a wonderful example for us.
Although Jesus ascended, he does not leave us on our own. He continues to send the Spirit and to offer salvation full and free. We eagerly await his second and final coming when he will take us to himself in heaven. So we pray, â€œCome Lord Jesus.â€
Paul and Barnabas preach the message of salvation to the crowds of people. However, jealous Jews stir up persecution against Paul and Barnabas and force them to leave. But God used persecution to spread his Word to many others, Jews and Gentiles alike.
Pastor Clayton Welch, Easter 2, John 20:19-31
On Easter evening, the glorified Jesus appeared to his disciples and announced peace to them. When Thomas refused to believe, Jesus, in love, appeared a second time to convince him of the resurrection and to repeat his message of peace. In love, God gives us his Word that we might also believe and have life in his name.
The first witnesses of the empty tomb are the women who were going to anoint Jesus' body with spices. The angels announced to them the great news, â€œHe is not here; he has risen!â€ They, in turn, told the disciples. The disciples were not immediately convinced that Christ had indeed risen.
Pastor Clayton Welch preaches this 5th Sunday in Lent on Luke 20:9-19. God continued to offer salvation to the chosen nation of Israel. As they rejected the prophets of salvation, so they also reject and would soon kill the author of their salvation, God's own son. Since they rejected their Savior, he would also reject them. May we never reject the precious gift of life from our God.

First Lesson Genesis 17:1-7
When Abram was 99 years old, God confirmed his covenant with Abram. God again promised that he was going to be the father of many nations, so God changed his mane to Abraham which means â€œfather of many.â€ God promised to show love to Abraham and his descendants who, by faith, would also look to Jehovah as their God.
Zephaniah refers to believers with the loving terms of Daughter of Zion, Israel, Daughter of Jerusalem, Jerusalem, and Zion. The realization if our sinfulness may cause us to fear the Lord's coming, but we can rejoice because the Lord our God is with us to save us. Zephaniah 3:14-17
