Because you are forgiven

By Brad Quiring on January 12, 2020

"Because you're forgiven". It is continuing from the message on the 5th of, "Be Better". 1 John 1:5-2:4 says we're in fellowship with God and with other, cleansed from our sins and having a strong testimony because we're forgiven through the work of Jesus Christ. All of His work results in us being forgiven.

By Brad Quiring on January 5, 2020

It's the New Year. Time to make some resolutions. The resolutions inevitably are to make you a better person. So you DO lots in order to BE a better person. Unfortunately we fail. Why?

By Bill Ehlers on October 27, 2019

Romans 8:28 is probably the second most well-known and used verse in the evangelical Christian's Bible vocabulary. The big question is beyond do we know what it means.

Examine Yourself

By Brad Quiring on September 8, 2019

1 Corinthians 11:23-32. Communion is a vital part of every church and Christian's life. It was instituted by Jesus Himself. We have been called to practice communion and to do it carefully.

By Brad Quiring on May 26, 2019
