For this reason, we hold life as sacred. Not because we love babies and seniors, but because God made life sacred. We...

The true follower of Christ is marked by their faith in God and righteous behaviour, especially toward others, because that is what God desires.

Commitment: Commitment to Bless One Another

By Brad Quiring on February 4, 2018

Commitment to Bless One Another. Romans 12:9-16. God has given each one of us gifts, which we use with humility to honour God and benefit others. The question is, what does the "benefit others" look like? Blessing one another is an expression of love and it is shown in our relationships with others in the church and community. It means...

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...

Forward from Here: Forward through Leadership

By on June 19, 2016

Acts 6:1-7 We see from the first day of The Church, that Christians served one another, took care of the needy and actively participated in the community. The practical service began to crack under sinful pressure and division. Racism reared its ugly head and the complaints began. The leadership of the church moved everyone forward through unity and wise decisions....
