COMMENT FROM AN INTERNET CONTRIBUTOR: "HEY PASTOR BILL, YOU SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE AN AGENDA WHEN YOU PREACH!"  

YOU BET I DO!  (BUT ONLY ONE!) To teach the Truth! To teach that all roads do not lead to Heaven. Only the narrow road, that leads to repentance! Through Obedience to following Jesus Christ as Lord. All other roads lead to hell and destruction (John 8:32).

WHY REACH OUT AND MINISTER TO MEN?

  • When a father is reached for Christ, 93% of his family will follow.  (Per the Heritage Foundation)
  • THE LORD S CALLING FAITHFUL MEN TO LEAD THEIR FAMILIES!

GRACE THAT IS AMAZING!

DO YOU SERVE JESUS AS LORD?

PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISE REPORTS


PRAY: The Church would not give in to the pressure from the world for Spiritual Correctness, (that is, not confronting the make-believer who claims to be believers), yet they continue in their disobedience, as if the Lord has given them a License to Sin! (1 John 2:19). Pray that the Church would be Strong,  yet compassionate in their confrontation.

Pray for: Wayne Beeks, living in Denver dealing with cancer- Wayne is our friend Doug's dad. Doug is with the Arizona Sheriff's Dept. Please keep his whole family in your prayers.

Pray for: Church membership; as membership is the life blood of our church second only to the Lord Jesus Christ Himself. A requirement for a strong continuation into the future.

Pray for:  OUR PRESIDENT and VICE PRESIDENT, as they take their posts, THEY NEED OUR PRAYERS!!  

Pray for: The teaching of; "The Gospel in the Stars". 

Pray for: Sandy & Fred Wilcox, as they are dealing with some health problems.

Pray for:  our son Eric  He briefly read through his latest chest X-ray and the memo that was written with it looks pretty good.  There is some build up of something in one of the lungs but he has had that for awhile.  The doc may give him something for that.  He's going to go in for a teeth exam next week.  He is thinking that there might be something happening on the inside that hasn't gotten to his roots yet.  So far he has had the following tests...  Cat scan, MRI, Spinal tap, Eye exam, Chest X-ray, and Random blood tests.  They all came back pretty good.  He thanks you for your continued prayers. He will be going in for a dental check.

Pray for:  Pastor John Whitaker who is recovering from foot surgery. Also, Pastor John has seen the need for additional study, is starting his continuing education.

Pray for:  Our law enforcement officers.

Pray for:  Hope, now 13 who is battling Lyme disease and its side affects.  Good news received this week.  Hope has officially transferred from the public school system back to her Christian School as of Wednesday.  She'll be going every day part time for awhile for about 3 1/2 hours.  A small group of remedial teachers will be working with her to bring her back up to grade level.  She will also attend a couple of general classes with her class to transition back into a classroom setting.  She is seeing progress with her legs by using brain activation and mental therapy.  She is setting major goals for herself and seeing God strengthen her to accomplish them.  Very encouraging and motivating!  Her sleep is slowly improving.  She is still awake much of the night, but seeing a bit of progress with dosing off and on trough those hours.  They are hoping that with the added school routine her body clock with right itself.

Pray that: All who are attending the Community Christian Church, as well as all who have ever attended- The Lord Jesus knows who you are, and He knows your needs. We pray that He will meet your every need. If your need is Salvation, and you have not yet accepted the Lord's invitation to join His family of believers by being born again, I pray that today will be the day you make that decision..

Pray that: all who know Jesus as Lord and Savior would start to live as if they do, and  will be willing to pay the one debt we owe for our Salvation; that is the debt of LOVE (Romans 13:8)! 

Pray: That all men who are called into the pastorate would know the need to study to gain advanced Training into a deeper and broader  understanding of the HolBible (2 Timothy 2:15)

Pray for: Pastor Bill as he teaches God's Word (1 Timothy 2:2). Also that the congregation would encourage him, and continue to love and encourage one another ( John 13:34).

THE PLAN OF SALVATION (NKJV)

 Admit You Are a Sinner in Need of Saving
•James 2:10 “For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles on one (point), he has become guilty of all.”

•Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

•Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Accept God’s Love through the/Sacrifice in His Son Jesus
•Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

Turn to God in Repentance
•Acts 20:21 “I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.”

Trust the Fullness Jesus Christ!
•Romans 10:9 “…if you confess with your mouth Jesus as  Lord,  and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved;

•Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the Name of the Lord shall be saved.”

•Romans 10:14 “How then shall they call on Him Who they have not believed?  And how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard?  And how shall they hear without a preacher?

•Romans 10:17 “So then Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.

•Jeremiah 29:13 “You will seek Me (God) and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart.”

It may not be easy to give up your old sinful ways, and turn in faith to Jesus Christ; but it is the only way to  SALVATION,  AND IT IS WORTH IT! 

 CALL UPON (THE FULLNESS OF) THE NAME OF JESUS AND YOU WILL BE SAVED!

  1. Hope you had a nice church service. I read the prayer request list and saw the news about the person in Denver. I'll be praying for him. And I saw the Eric update as well. Sounds like they're somewhat figuring it out. I have heard that health concerns could be tied to your teeth so that's good he's having a dental exam this week just to rule everything out.
    How's the new bible study going? It sounds really interesting!

    HI there Brother Bill and Kathy,

    As I’ve seen your new lessons “Gospel in the Stars” I’ve wondered if you have ever been to the CREATION MUSEUM in Kentucky outside of Cincinnati? Now they also have an actual size exhibit of Noah’s Ark too. Anyway they have an AWESOME planetarium with 2 excellent presentations on the stars. You could probably even go on line and order them in DVD’s. It may be GENESIS 1:1… As you travel it would be WELL WORTH PLANNING 3 DAYS there. (We were there 1 1/2 days and could have used a little more time—so with the Ark as well I’m sure 3 days are needed.)

    Praying for you!

    In Christian Love,

  4. Hi PB,

    Good Word and straight to the point - we serve our Master! Only by God's mercy and Grace have we been liberated from our old master to serve The Master! Praise His name Jesus!

    So many profess Jesus as Lord but they are only wanting to employ Him as Savior .... while He wishes to give them the position of servant.

    I feel so blessed that The Lord would give us a position to serve Him. Knowing the only good in man is Him!

    John 15:15

    That was quite a story about Hawaii you shared... Thank You PB for sharing with me.

    Who do you serve? What a question! So many in this day of me-me-me, we can know what the answer to that question is, so many today serves self- yet, call themselves Christians, but are they? A true statement, "If you are living in sin, don't claim to be following The Lord Jesus Christ. Way to go Pastor Bill
