Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “Comfortable Christianity” based on Revelation 3: 14-22:

  • The Church in the West has become like Laodicea
  • God has blessed us abundantly
  • Because of our blessing we fail to acknowledge our need for God
  • We are ignorant and apathetic to our own condition
  • Jesus says that we must be zealous and repent!

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “The Christian Life: Prayer” based on Matthew 6:5-13.  It is the first of a four part series on the Essentials of the Christian Life:

  • We are privileged to call God “Father”
  • We should worship and adore God in our prayers.
  • We should pray for our needs and for God’s guidance.
  • We should praise the Lord and thank Him for His blessings.
  • We are privileged to approach God’s throne because of what Jesus has done for us.
  • Those who have not believed on Jesus cannot call God “Father”.

2010 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Goal Announced

Posted by Rick on November 4, 2010

The International Mission Board has announced that the 2010 Lottie Moon Christmas Offering Goal is $175 million!  Our church goal is $1000.00.

The 2010 theme is “Are We There Yet?

The following is taken directly from the IMB website:

Are we there yet?

When it comes to reaching a lost world for Christ, some may wonder how far we’ve come and how much farther to go.

Today, we can identify the people groups that remain untouched by the Gospel. For the first time, it is conceivable that all people groups can be reached in the coming years with a Gospel presence. According to IMB’s 2009 statistical data* there were 506,019 baptisms, 204,192 churches. Church membership overseas was at 10.7 million, and there were 24,650 new churches.

Yes, there is still a long way to go, but progress is being made every day.

Now is the time to also take a fresh look at the challenges ahead and be ready to finish the task. With 45,560 churches in the Southern Baptist Convention, there is much work to be done.

Here’s a global snapshot of the work ahead of us:

* 4,743 people groups are not engaged at all with the Gospel

* 6,426 unreached people groups (those with less than 2 percent of people who profess to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ)

* 1.7 billion with little or no access to the Gospel

* 1.5 billion Muslims – 22 percent of the world’s population

* 950 million Hindus in the world

* Christian witness among China cities less than 1 percent

* 3 percent evangelical believers among Ethiopia’s 82 million people

* 355 million in South America do not know Christ

* Less than 1 percent Christian among more than 270 million living in the Central Asia region

* 650,000 Lezghi in the Causcasus Mountains fear evil spirits

* 97 percent of all Palestinians are Muslim

* 89 percent of North African and Middle Eastern people groups are unreached

* 311 people groups in India have no known evangelical believers

* Only 1,600 believers among 1.6 million Muong of Northern Vietnam

 

A little overwhelming isn’t it?

he task is doable, but it will take all of us – our churches, our missionaries, our national partners, our Great Commission partners.

Are we there yet? Not quite. But we’re on our way.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “The Commandment of Christ” based on Matthew 28:18-20:

  • Jesus expects His followers to tell others about His good news.
  • Jesus left us with instructions to follow and expects them to be done when He gets back.
  • As we go about our regular lives, we should be faithful to tell others.
  • We shouldn’t wait until we go somewhere special to start telling others about Jesus.
  • Baptism is an important part of following Jesus.

Sunday’s Coming!

Posted by Rick on March 24, 2010

This coming Sunday,  we will be celebrating the Lord’s Supper!  Begin to prepare your hearts.  I Corinthians 11:29 warns us to not take the Lord’s Supper in an unworthy manner.  It urges us to examine ourselves.

We should take this to mean that if we are living in unrepentant sin, then get right with God (repent and don’t do that sin any more) before coming to His table.  If you have something against someone, or someone has something against you, then make it right with that person before coming to His table.

Our message Sunday morning will be “Cleaning House” based on Matthew 21:12-16, where Jesus cleansed the temple in Jerusalem.

Sunday evening, the Abbotts will be with us to give a presentation of their work in Indonesia.  We’ll have a Finger Food Fellowship following.

See you Sunday!
