The Light Has Come!

“Darkness,” may be defined as the partial or total absence of light. When light is removed objects are unrecognizable or distorted. The human eye can’t perceive color without light. One can’t judge distance very well when stumbling in the dark of night. Darkness also hides what could easily be recognized in the light; whether that is a rugged pathway, furniture in a room, a curving highway or an abyss that looms ahead. When we choose to walk in darkness trouble usually ensues. It is no wonder … [Read more...]

A Note From Dan…

Several weeks ago as Hurricane Michael pounded the coast of north Florida, it left a path of massive destruction across Florida, south Alabama, and Georgia.

I was able to catch a cargo ship out in the Pacific Ocean and transit the Panama Canal all the way to the … [Read more...]

A Church That Serves…

Serving God and others is the hallmark of the Christian life. Jesus Christ is the greatest example we have of what a true servant looks like. Mark 10:45 “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.” (NIV) As a church we are called to serve others. The true witness of our faith cannot be separated from service. James 2:14-18 (NLT) “…What’s the use of saying you have faith if you don’t prove it by your actions? That kind of … [Read more...]
