Jesus said, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father but through me.

"Get in the Word. Get the Word in you. Read and study your Bible!"
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in the shed blood atonement of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin and we believe that the Holy Bible is the perfect Word of God. There are no mistakes, no conflict and it says what it means and means what it says. Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven and you must be born again to get there. We believe that the triune God. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, is one God. We believe in Christ and Him crucified. Being a Christian means you have a relationship with Jesus and you fashion your life and lifestyle according what He teaches in His Word, the Bible. We believe Christians are people who are growing in His grace and daily trying to reflect Jesus Christ in their lives, not perfect little religious robots. We believe that God is a merciful Father who cares about every thing, big or little, in our lives and that all His promises are as good today as they were two thousand years ago. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever and he will meet you at your need whenever you ask, where ever you are. We do not claim to have all the answers to all the questions but we are absolutely positive that we can introduce you to the One, who not only does have all the answers, but the One Who is the answer. We also believe that the greatest miracle of all is when a person is born again. Whether you've come to our web site deliberately or maybe you just happened upon it, please let me tell you what the lord has done for us.
WHERE WE CAME FROM
I, Jack, was a lost, drunken, drug abusing street bum for many years. After my father died when I was four years old my mother re-married. How can I soften telling how it was? I think by realizing they both had a history of suffering too. My step-father had been bullied in his life and I think that's one of the reasons he brutally beat me on a regular basis. My mother never made any effort to stop him and I guess she was trying to justify herself by blaming me, saying I was no good and ugly. I didn't know any better than to believe what she said which made me think I deserved the beatings. It really warped my mind and emotions for years. Drinking and drugs were an escape that eventually enslaved me and I pretty much became what I hated most; a mean destructive hateful adult.There is no limit to what I could have done had not the violence and anger turned inside onto myself It could have been a much different outcome. God was very merciful to me. I became a statistic, in and out of jails and mental hospitals and I didn't know how to live and I couldn't die. On December 8th, 1988 I finally came to the end of myself. While in a detox facility in Kentucky, I cried out to Jesus in desperation, not believing He would hear me, but He did. He didn't give me what I deserved but gave me grace and mercy instead. I asked Him to forgive me and save me and He did. He came into my life and my heart and I was born again. It hasn't always been easy but it has always been worth the effort and work it takes to live a transformed life in Christ.
PLEASE, SIGN IN ON OUR GUEST BOOK.
Sally came from parents who were young and foolish that got married for the wrong reasons and when they realized their mistake she was on the way. They went their own ways and for many years Sally was subjected to a mean, hard drinking, violent step-father who wanted to be with her mother but resented her being in the way. She suffered much emotional abuse and often had to literally run to keep him from hitting her. It was not an easy way to grow up but she survived. There was good side to her growing up though. Her grandparents came on the scene and took her into their home and raised her in a Godly and sane environment. They were both devoted Christian and church members. Because he was the caretaker of the church, Sally often went with her grandfather to tend to various duties. Her grandmother was head of her Sunday School department so she says she sometimes felt like she literally lived part of her life in church. Sally is very quick to share with people how the Lord was there for her as she experienced both the harsh bitterness of life while having loving nurturing grandparents there too.
WHERE WE ARE AND WHERE YOU CAN BE TOO
God has been so good to us and He wants to be good to you too. We've shared this little snapshot of our lives so you can see that He really can and wants to make a difference in all our lives. Maybe your life has always been pretty good and you were brought up by good parents (praise God for good parents). You still need to come to Jesus if you want to have the abundance of life that only He can give. Believe it or not, but heaven and hell are real. You will experience one or the other by the decision you make. If you are a Christian, we thank God for you, but if you've never come to Jesus Christ and confessed yourself a sinner and asked His forgiveness and invited Him into your heart to give Him your life you are lost and you will spend eternity separated from God. That is hell by any definition. Jesus gave His life for you on the Cross of Calvary and He wants you to give your life to Him because He wants you to be with Him in eternal life.
We thank the Lord that He put us together to work for Him. We come from totally different cultures. I grew up in the deep south, Mississippi, and Sally grew up in the north, northern Illinois but because of the consistency of the Bible's teaching we live in love and unity. We believe that it doesn't matter that much where you come from or what you've come from but it is a matter of life and death where you are and where you're going. God bless you and keep you safe and give you favor in all you do and everywhere you go.
