THE BIBLE’S ANSWER TO, “I CAN BE A CHRISTIAN AND NOT JOIN A LOCAL CHURCH!”

Post Views: 653 Beware of self centered decisions. Your life is no longer yours as a new follower of Jesus, so you must immediately drop all ideas that you are in charge.

Does Doctrine Matter?

Post Views: 1,068 If you drift through the modern American churches it will not take long to hear the echo of “…doctrine is not important, it just divides the church. Let’s unite and show God’s love!” But God’s Word disagrees. 2 John 1:9-10  NKJV “Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God.

The Biblical Way of Asking For Forgiveness When You Wrong Someone

Post Views: 965 The narrow way of abundant life that Jesus gives us through His grace pushes us to do everything in our power to make things right when we wrong others.

WORKS: How Valuable Is Your Church To God? Part 2

Post Views: 732 As we look at the second city church [Smyrna], it verifies the single important action that is approved by the Lord, “I know your works, tribulation, and poverty (but you are rich);” [Rev 2:9 (NKJV)]. This second church report shows again that consistent Kingdom work to reach the world is the primary purpose of the church, and the Lord checks on it in every church in the world![…]
