The Whole Picture: The True Consequence of “Skipping Church”

By Brad Quiring on August 27, 2017

Hebrews 10:23-25: This is the traditional thought: “Good Christians never miss church. If you miss church you are in sin because church is for your growth and learning and you’ll end up suffering.” According to the Bible, when we habitually neglect getting together as believers, the whole body suffers. It’s far more than getting together on Sunday. The...

By Brad Quiring on March 26, 2017

Acts 12:1-19. The Church that Jesus had established was growing by leaps and bounds. Despite brutal opposition, the numbers and dedication of the followers of Jesus was growing beyond control.

Ignite!: Igniting a Growing Family

By Brad Quiring on March 19, 2017

Acts 11:25-30. As the church grew beyond the borders of Israel, God ignited encouragement in the hearts of the followers of Jesus. They didn't just take care of one another in Antioch, they willingly gave their help and encouragement to those far away who were in need. We are a family in The Church. Every follower of Jesus, every "Christian",...

In Remembrance of Me

By Brad Quiring on March 12, 2017

Communion. The Lord's Supper. The Last Supper. We have practiced this in some form or another in every Christian church since The Church began back in Acts 2. It was commanded by Jesus. Sometimes we get caught in the trap of following a tradition without really knowing what it is about. We do the "What" very well, but forget about the ...

Ignite!: Ignite Unity

By Brad Quiring on November 20, 2016

When Jesus moves through his church, things will be lit. Change can bring some uncertainty. Following God's commands sometimes isn't as clear to some as it is to others. When Jesus told his followers to go into all the world to preach the good news, he meant go to EVERYONE. When the new believers in Jesus came into the family,...

International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

By Jason and Charlene Ryan on November 13, 2016

2 Corinthians 1:5 NIV "For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.". Christians in Canada and the United States have the huge privilege of being able to believe in Jesus and practice their faith publicly. Most of the world's population does not have that privilege. For millions, to merely believe in Jesus...

Ignite!: Igniting a Vision

By Brad Quiring on October 30, 2016

Igniting through Vision, Acts 10:1 – 23. When Jesus moves in His Church, something will be lit. Two righteous followers of God. Good men. Complete strangers to one another, yet intimately known by God. Jesus brought them together through powerful visions. Through these visions, and the subsequent obedience, the Church went far beyond the borders of Israel and Judaism to meet us here...
