I’m a sinner because…

Posted by Rod Neufeld on July 17, 2015

I’m a sinner because…..or I sin because….or…What’s the answer? Sin. That dirty little word. It’s the word nobody ever wants to talk about. We hear it and a number of responses go through our minds. It really seems that this word, that once carried such a tremendous amount of weight, has become of no...

A Wretch Like Me… and You

Posted by Rod Neufeld on April 22, 2015

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me! (‘Amazing Grace’, John Newton, 1779) How a slave trader could turn from his wealth and lifestyle to follow Christ. This wretched shell of a man captured the Gospel in 12 words. John Newton was lost, then found and saved. Not by his own works, but by the power and grace...

The Road to Easter

Posted by Brad Quiring on April 8, 2015

Easter in North American culture has basically become “Christmasized”. That is, the very heart and elements of the story were removed and replaced by cheap, plasticized, commercialized cuteness designed to appeal to children and incite us to spend lots of money while we eagerly await another long weekend. Good Friday and Easter according to the Bible should be the most “...

The Road to a Tragic Triumph (Palm Sunday, 2015)

Posted by Brad Quiring on March 30, 2015

If you ask me, Easter should be the biggest celebration of the year, not Christmas. Christmas is the first chapter, Easter is the completion. Then again, why not have TWO celebrations? Turkey, pie and presents twice a year!! Back on topic: Jesus walked three different roads at the first Easter nearly 2000 years ago. The first was the road up to...

Jesus, a friend of sinners?!

Posted by Rod Neufeld on March 24, 2015

Yeah, this is a tough one to get through. You see people that don’t know CHRIST have a preconceived notion about Christians and what we stand for etc…. The problem is they are usually wrong about us. Unfortunately for everyone there are a lot of bad examples out there. We need to make sure we are not those bad...

Who is this JESUS you speak of?

Posted by Rod Neufeld on March 12, 2015

The big question, we hear talk of spirituality and the word “god” thrown around. Let’s face it, most of the world not only doesn’t really understand what we as Christians believe neither do they realize that what we know is true has been revealed to us. They have ideas but don’t truly know. We are in a...

Jesus Died for All

Posted by Rod Neufeld on February 25, 2015

Who did Christ die for? It’s a simple question, we answer quickly with our lips. How do we answer with our actions though? For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16 KJV) Here it is, the 6th word gives it away “...
