By Brad Quiring on August 25, 2019

The Power of God to Raise the Dead - Acts 20, 1 Corinthians 15. People have been falling asleep in church for centuries. It's most likely the preacher's fault. Even Paul's sermons dropped on poor young man not just into dreamland, but out of a third story window. What could have been a horrific tragedy, turned into another revelation of God's great power...

By Brad Quiring on July 28, 2019

God had given the whole world to King Nebuchadnezzar. In fact, in Jeremiah 27, God called Nebuchadnezzar his "servant". In a move that is common to all people, Nebuchadnezzar began to think his incredible success was a result of his wisdom, intelligence, craftiness and greatness. Little did he know that God was not going to let him get away with this...

Share: In Their Language

By Brad Quiring on June 16, 2019

We have the command from Jesus to share our faith. Most Christians really do want to share their faith. Our modern culture, though, has drifted so far from the true God, from church and the Bible that we cannot assume they know what we are talking about when we share our faith. We have to take the time and have...

Toll Road: Lose Your Life to Save It

By Brad Quiring on May 26, 2019

Salvation is free, but there is a cost to follow Jesus as His disciple. Our life is that: OURS. It is not to be ours as it was purchased by Jesus' own life to save us from our sins and the eternal punishment we deserve for being sinners. Our desire for preserving our comfort and doing our own thing only...

Life is sacred. God created all people in His image and is the one who determines life and death. God loves all people and it is his desire that all come to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
