BUT IF THE 'WORLD' GETS INTO THE CHURCH,

THE CHURCH WILL GO DOWN IN DISGRACE!"

"Now fear the Lord and serve Him with all faithfulness...But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve...But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."-Joshua 24:14-15

A Quote Worth Reading

“Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.”

~Patrick Henry
***********************************
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; to 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.

IS THERE A BIBLICAL PRESCRIPTION TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? YES! ONE AND ONLY ONE. IT'S FOUND IN 2nd CHRONICLES 7:14; "IF MY PEOPLE WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN I WILL HEAR FROM HEAVEN, AND WILL FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND HEAL THEIR LAND." 

THE ANSWER IS: TURN BACK TO THE LORD GOD-TO FAITH-FAMILY! 


WHY REACH OUT AND MINISTER TO MEN?

  • When a child is reached for Christ, 3.5% of the family will follow.
  • When a mother is reached for Christ, 17% of her family will follow.
  • 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!

*******************************************************

God, The Father of Creation



THE WHORE OF BABYLON


As a pastor, as a minister of God, I am to believe Him, to teach, to preach that every Word in the Bible is true, not what I may want to be true only; but every word; and without compromise!

SALVATION:  Not 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

    Love Your Neighbor




    It has been said, "If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other."




    One of the Pharisees, being an expert in the Law of Moses and seeking to test Jesus, asked Jesus, what is the greatest commandment, to which Jesus replied; Jesus declared with the command, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:37-40)

    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.

    11. Good Day PB

      Good Word for all to heed the warning and be sure of this: The Ecumenical church had no desire to return to ---- What Saith The Lord? - It Is Written - Have you Not Read?
      The Mother of Harlots: our self-deceived, sex saturated society has our posterity in the cross hairs and they will not negotiate.

      Wake Up Church and Stand up Church and hold your ensign on high!

      Keep on Keeping on PB

    12. 100 degrees. Makes everything slow down. Mentally and physically. Or maybe that's age.... I guess between age and heat , things really slow down.
