"Imagine A Church"

Imagine a church that welcomes you regardless of your age, your looks, the clothes you wear, the amount of money you have, your past experiences, your stage in life or your stage in the journey of faith.
Imagine a church that is amazed by your God given gifts and talents and is eager to help you use them to make the community and world around you better. 
 
Image a church that could step outside the norm, embracing new technology and ideas, while also staying true to a sound Biblical foundation.
 
Imagine a church that challenges the status quo in its Christian life by studying, praying, practicing, and praising with receptive hunger that grows deeper every day.
 
Image a church that seizes the opportunity to make a positive impact in the community through service and spreading the message of hope of Jesus Christ to others.  
 
Imagine a church where strangers and guests are united as a family and want to nurture one another in their spiritual growth. 
 
Our vision is that your imagination becomes reality as we seek to Exalt God!

"FOOD FOR THOUGHT"

The Lasting Command

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
 Matthew 28:19


Jesus spoke these words over 2,000 years ago.  While the disciples did not scatter into the world immediately, once they began to be persecuted, they and the Word spread quickly.  Since then, millions of disciples have taken the Gospel into their neighborhoods and around the world.

It is easy to put the early disciples on a pedestal, thinking they were somehow smarter, better eqipped, or more courageous to share the Gospel than we are today.  The truth is that they were ordinary men equipped and guided by God.  They understood, just as David did when he fought Goliath, that the result of their efforts did not depend on them, but on God.

Today, we have the same commission that Christ assigned to His disciples.  While His command may seem daunting, we have the same God with us, and He makes successful evangelism possible.  Our only responsibility is to remain focused on Him.  We can be confident in Him.  He has the power to take our mustard seed faith and move mountains.  Let's remain committed to letting our light shine before men, that they may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16).

READ: Ephesians 3

God uses men who are weak and feeble enough to lean on Him.
Hudson Taylor

Should your path be obscured with darkness,

I pray that God's grace light up your path.
Should your heart be burdened with fear,
I pray that you reach out for His Hands and let it guide you.
Should your hands feel empty and your struggles pushing you to the ground
I pray that you find His Love and let it fill the void in your soul.

                                                                                                                                                        

PRAYER:  Lord God, I come before you praising you and thanking you for your Son, our Savior. 
Open my heart and mind to the understanding of your word. 
Help me to press on in the studying of Your Word.
May my light always shine bright for you.  Strengthen my prayer time, and help me to become a mighty warrior in prayer.
Strengthen my fellowship with other believers. Help me to share your great love with others. Give me a true heart of worship and help me to be obedient to your word and callings on my life. May my love for others be selfless, and my heart never be shut when I see a brother or sister in need or lonely.  Help me to share your love with the world.  All this I ask in Your Precious Holy Name.  Amen.



Something to Really Think About

"The Lords Prayer"

The Lord is my Shepherd
(That is Relationship!)

I shall not want.
(That is Supply!)

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
(That is Rest!)

He leadeth me beside the still waters
(That is Refreshment!)

He restoreth my soul
(That is Healing!)

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
(That is Guidance!)

For His name's sake
(That is Purpose!)

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
(That is testing!)

I will fear no evil
(That is Protection!)

For Thou art with me
(That is Faithfulness!)

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me
(That is Discipline!)

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies
(That is Hope!)

Thou annointest my head with oil
(That is Consecration!)

My cup runneth over
(That is Abundance!)

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
(That is Blessing!)

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
(That is Security!)

Forever.
(That is Eternity!)

Three Approaches to Reading the Bible

There are many ways to read the Bible, but these three methods work and they will bear fruit.  If you are not reading God's Word daily right now, that can change by using one of these simple plans or approaches.  Depending on your daily schedule, you can pick a way to read the Bible that works best for you.  Enjoy your reading!

(1) PICK A BOOK
Other than reading the Bible straight through from Genesis to Revelation, choosing a book of the Bible is the easiest
way to begin.  But you can choose the books you read based on length or based on subject matter.

BOOKS BY LENGTH:
The greastest sense of accomplishment will come by starting with short books rather than long ones.  Obadiah, Philemon,
and Jude each have one chapter; Ruth, several of the Minor Prophets, and some of Paul's epistles have fewer than
five chapters, and so on.  It is better to start small and be encouraged by your accomplishment than to start big (like with
Deuteronomy, Isaiah, Jeremiah, or Revelation) and grow discouraged.  An advantage of this approach is that it requires no other study aids.  The Bible is all you need.

BOOKS BY SUBJECT MATTER:
The Bible contains five broad categoreis of subject matter that could be chosen based on personal interest or perference:

HISTORY:  Genesis - Esther plus Acts (Written in narrative, historical style)

WISDOM/POETRY:  Job - Song of Songs (Full of poetic imagery)

PROPHETIC/APOCALYPTIC:  Isaiah - Malachi plus Revelation (The most challenging subject matter)

GOSPELS Matthew - John (Mark is shortest; John is thematic rather than biographical)

EPIESTLES:  Romans - Jude (practical theology and instruction for the Christian life)

(2) PICK A TOPIC
There is no shortage of topics one could choose to read about in the Bible.  The two broadest being a subject or a person(s):

SUBJECTS:  Read about love, war, sex, discipline, creation, wisdom, judgment, money, angels, marriage, children, anger, and the list goes on.  Pick a subject that interests you, or about which you have quetions, and pursue it in an open-ended fashion.  Or, purpose to study a subject-a-month for a year.  Reading just 15 minutes a day for 30 days equals 7.5 hours -
a mini-course in a topic related to your life.

PEOPLE:  Read about Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus' disciples (by name or as a group), Paul, Peter, John Barnabas, one of several Marys -- and more.

For a subject or character study, you will need some sort of topical study guide or a Bible concordance (either or both are found in many of today's study Bibles).  A topical study guide will group relevant passages together for you; a concordance will list every verse in which "love/loves" or "Abraham" is mentioned.  Then, it is simply a matter of reading through all of the relevant verses.

(3) PICK A PURPOSE
This approach allows you to embrace the purpose for which certain parts of the Bible were written.  For instance . . .

PSALMS - staying focused on (worshipping) God in the midst of life's trials.

PROVERBS - gaining wisdom needed to live a skillful godly life.

SONG OF SONGS - exploring the depths of marital love and romance.

ECCLESIASTES - understanding why the world can't satisfy man's deepest longings.

DANIEL - Examining evidence that God rules the world and the affairs of kings.

MATTHEW - proving to a Jewish audience that Jesus was the Messiah.

JOHN - demonstrating that Jesus was the divine Son of God.

ACTS - relating a record of the supernatural explosion of the early Church.

1 CORINTHIANS - answering a variety of questions about Christian living.

REVELATION - outlining God's victorious plan for the end of the present age.

Each of the above three approaches works well when you designate a specific amount of time to study every day.
Begin reading, mark your place at the end of the allotted time and continue reading the next day.

Make time for GOD's Word!
