Statement of Faith

1. The Bible is God’s word to man, written by human authors, under the divine guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without error. (2 Timothy 3:16 | 2 Peter 1:20,21 | 2 Timothy 1:13 | Psalm 119:105,160, 12:6 | Proverbs 30:5)

Core Values

Accountability - We believe that we will be held accountable for how we use the gifts and resources with which God has entrusted us. Our desire is to be accountable to God and to one another in striving to be wise stewards of His gifts. - Matthew 5:13-16 / Matthew 25:14-30 / 1 Corinthians 4:2

God won't give me more than I can handle??????

So this is my blog right? I have every right to say what I feel right? Great!!!

Folks, that phrase that you hear in church on the regular...that you hear from our pastors on the regular...that you hear in Gospel songs of EVERY genre...that you hear on radio shows...that you hear at awards shows...that phrase is just anti-Biblical.

Getting closer and closer...

As 2009 unfolds a few things have become apparent to me and my wife...there's movement. You might be saying, "Duh E, of course there's movement." But I mean movement in terms of getting closer to people, to dates, to purpose.
