What's on your mind? Confusion? Fear? Worry? Frustration? These feelings are real, but they aren't helpful to you or anyone else. Philippians 4:4-9 has some great counsel on how to move your mind into a godly place, where you can not only help yourself, but do good to others.

From darkness in our thinking to clarity about the truth of Jesus. Every person is unclear about Jesus, the Bible, The Holy Spirit and God. We are constantly unsure of right and wrong, good and evil. Some live as if ignorance is bliss while others spin their mental wheels trying to figure it all out. This darkness in our thinking...

Relativism chooses every turn, every pace, every street, according to its own autonomous preferences, and submits to no truth. God's Word, the Bible, calls followers of Jesus to a much higher standard: the standard of Truth. Truth based on what God has established from a loving and wise heart and mind.

God has spoken to us and revealed himself to us in many ways. But the greatest way is by Jesus coming to this earth.

Trials, testing, difficulties, challenges. This is a hard life. It's not fun. But it is joyful. What? God leverages all of this for His glory and our good. Through all of these hardships, God makes us stronger in our faith, builds us up in our hope and gives us more and more wisdom. Read James 1:2-4.

Indispensable God. We need God. Period. Without God, we have no life, no blessings, no hope, no existence at all. God is real and he is the One who defines all things in this universe. So many us live as if we don't believe that we need God for everything. A refining of our faith will then manifest itself in...

We cannot be saved on our own. We need Jesus. How do we know this? We have a message: the Gospel, which means, literally, the Good News. We need this Good News in order to be saved from our sins and from God's punishment. We also need to proclaim this message to others.

How pleasant it would be to walk with Jesus, right? While our eternal future with Jesus is bright and pleasant, the journey there may be far from that. Yet, Jesus is still with us and we can get through it all through our faith and obedience. Pastor Lowell Ethier will be sharing from his years of experience in churches and...

Acts 14:21-28. After Paul, Barnabas and their team completed their tour of Asia Minor, they returned to all the places they had been and reinforced the churches: praying with, teaching, warning and encouraging them.
