Responsibility of the Senior Pastor

As the Senior Pastor of this church, called by God to oversee His Church in Valley Farms, it is my responsibility from God to care for the flock; see that His Church is always God honoring; That His Word is taught without compromise.

A POWERFUL TRUTH:
The Word of God is alive and Powerful! When truly heard, this Word will awaken the spiritually dead.  His Word, when accepted as truth; will save men from their sin, therefore... “How can they hear without a preacher?” – Romans 10: 13-15.

Should you have any questions, feel free to talk with me.

SCRIPTURE:  2 Corinthians 5:17

1.     In the 6th chapter of the Gospel of John, Jesus miraculously fed a crowd with one little boy’s lunch and later he declared to this same crowd in John 6:35, “I am the ___________ of ___________. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”

6.     We discover that ______________ is the supreme source of our satisfaction.

7.     As we trust in Christ, He transforms our taste in such a way that we ____ the things of ____ we once hated:  His Law, His Precepts, and His Way.  We begin to ______ the ways of the ____________.

SALVATIONNot only to Eternity in Heaven, but From Eternity in Hell! You MUST, first of all; Admit You Are a Sinner in Need of a Savior:


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!

    Pastor’s Corner

    Written By: Dr. Doug W. Beeks- Blue-line ministries
    Edited By: Pastor William Perry- Community Christian Church

    Blessed Be the Small Church and it's Pastor

    We all have a mental image of what our “ideal” church is. Having been a small child in rural North Dakota, my mental image no doubt comes from my memories of the small white churches that could be found through out the state in many small farming communities. Sadly small community churches are disappearing rapidly all around us throughout the country. Like the many small local mom and pop stores of the past being replaced by big box stores; these small local church's are being  replaced by the super-sized, one size fits all mega church. Most of the local churches are being forced to close because of declining congregations with far too many people being drawn to the bigger mega churches with all the “amenities” they claim to offer, a theology that is a mile wide and 1/4 in. deep, causing a general decline in Christian teaching. These mega churches truly do not offer more of what is truly important.

    (1 Peter 5:2),“shepherd the flock of God among you, exercising oversight not under compulsion, but voluntarily, according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with eagerness;”

    It is true, Jesus did speak to large crowds, many times numbering in the thousands, but these crowds were not a church. But even today, in the mega church congregation one may easily become lost to the dynamics that so readily bind us together in a small church, that is the personal connection to each other as well as to the pastor; and the church family. Lost is the close nit community feel as these mega churches with their large auditorium seating, filled with hundreds, at times even thousands. The Pastor of the church may never appear before them live, but only on a big screen with surround sound. In this setting, the connection between the pastor and his flock cannot be forged, or nurtured when the pastor appears as larger than life on a big screen monitor. Lost is the pastoral care; the real human connection, the nurturing, and personal contact with the pastor.  Lost in the mega church is that community connection. Too often, sermons preached in the mega-church are polished, sterile and “boiled”productions that in no way connect to the specific spiritual needs of the local community. The delivery becomes more like a political campaign speech, with lots of feel good fluff, a one size fits all feel, but with very little substance. While such sermons may bring in the numbers and money, and may keep them in attendance, but do not challenge their sin filled life in any way! A larger congregation does not equate to the true mission; Saved Souls.

    Truly it is important for all of us to attend church on a regular basis, but I would challenge any that attend the mega-church, to take a chance, to attend a small local church in your community. To get to know and appreciate the spiritual connection that is often lost in the impersonal mass of large congregations, the value and heart felt simple greetings before and after the service, the connection between the pastor and church member (or visitor) can never be underestimated or replaced. There is, and always will be a need for the God called pastor and his humble uncompromising sermon delivery, for his eagerness to spread God's word, for his love for the local church. Like looking for that small mom and pop restaurant that has the best food to eat and the personal touch that comes with it. Take the time to look for that small local church with its loving uncompromising pastor, who will feed you the "Bread of Life", Bread that will feed your eternal soul.
    ----------
    Lord we pray for all churches both big and small, to teach the truth, without compromise. Bless the powerful Jesus Honoring  small church, bless it's pastor who will stand tall and preach Your Word, and give you the glory, that truly belongs to you, Lord.

    We pray in Jesus’s name
    Amen

      Dr. William Perry is a prolific writer of outstanding books. His titles for Newburgh Press thus far are Christians Helping Christians, Christian Counseling for the 21st Century and Theology for the 21st Century. Each book is a must for every reader of solid Christian material.

      I am happy to endorse Dr. Perry’s latest treasure, “A Journey Through The Gospels.” Every student and preacher/teacher of the Bible needs this book for the desk or the bedside table. You will enjoy reading insights and valuable lessons that many casual readers of the Bible will miss.

      While this book is not lengthy you will find a delightful study of each gospel that will make you appreciate the wonderful gospel stories and love Jesus even more.
      To God be the glory!
