BUT IF THE 'WORLD' GETS INTO THE CHURCH,

THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

April 3

is the church failing?

IF the Church is failing in the world
WHAT WOULD BE A SIGN OF ITS FAILURE?

The size of the congregation?  NO!
The growth of the church?  NO!
How many are being saved? No!
FAILING TO BE BIBLICAL? YES!

THE CHURCH CAN ONLY FAIL IF THE CHURCH FAILS TO BE BIBLICAL.

The Church belongs to Jesus Christ,
So the only way the Church can fail is if it fails to teach and submit to the truth of God’s word.  

NOTE:  Hearing from you every two or three weeks, would let us know you want to continue receiving our newsletter.

THE BOOK OF REVELATION

The book of Revelation is one of the most powerful books in the Bible.  The Apostle John, who actually saw Jesus crucified, wrote it while he was a prisoner on the Island of Patmos.  Want to see what happens when God lets loose His wrath?  Read this book.  It is scarier than any movie out there.  It will put the fear of God into you.  And here is the real scary part...it's all true and it is really going to happen!

    Pastor, the church is not losing, the world is losing- Will they Never Learn.

    I never thought of Jesus being Lord of any group except Christians, but, sure, when you give it a little thought. If He is Lord of Lord, King of Kings, and Lord of ALL! Of course He is.

  7. What you are telling us here, many of us have never heard, we didn't know Jesus is telling us to do, we have been taught that Jesus loves us, and wants so much for us to accept Him, that He will save us just like we are. Now you are telling us we have to repent! My mind is spinning. Please, tell me more.

  9. Hi PB and K
    I was able to a listen to your Resurrection Morning message.... and I loved the way your children received the story you told them about someone finding Jesus' bones.
    When all you know is the truth - anything else rings untrue.
    and sir... Happy Birthday to you .... late but sincere.
    I hope to watch your last weeks message before I get home again.
