God’s Promise

What God speaks is reality and truth. Or, in the case of creation, what he speaks becomes reality and truth. Such is the power of God’s word. So aren’t you glad that his word is reality and his promises true? Especially in weeks like this one in Central Alabama when the rains just keep coming.…

3rd John

John tells us of two men. Gaius: He was beloved. He had made the truth of Jesus his truth. He walked in the truth of Jesus. It caused him to befriend and offer hospitality to strangers.

Ready For Questions?

Listen To Him

Three times the Bible records the words God speaks to Jesus directly from heaven. The first is at Jesus’ baptism. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” (Matt. 3:17 NIV) God is well pleased with Jesus. He delights in him. All Jesus does…
