The primary call of God in our lives is our relationship with Him. But there is also a secondary call - the work God has appointed us to do. more

Finding Purpose

You can trust God with the plans He has for your life! more

God's Will

None of our prayers fall to the ground. Every prayer we ever pray hangs, as it were, in space, until God answers it according to His eternal purposes and in His perfect timing. more

Prayer

Fear and worry are not fruit of the Spirit but rather fruit of the flesh - fear and worry denote a lack of trust and confidence in the Lord. more

No matter how many difficult things are going on in your life, peace is possible in the deepest part of your heart. more

Prayer

How can we as Christians, who know the answers to the eternal why in people’s hearts, do anything other than live a life sharing it with others? more

Finding Purpose

Another Good Friday. Time to wonder anew at the price of my redemption. Lord, only through the cross can I enter; only through the cross am I saved more

Easter

Why is it so important to believe in Jesus’ resurrection? Because we who believe it and confess Him as Lord will be raised too! more

Easter

Jesus died in our place on a wooden cross two thousand years ago so we could be forgiven. We only have to accept that forgiveness. We have to accept the Cross. more

Easter

God is a purposeful God who had sweet reasons for making you just as you are! more

Finding Purpose

There is nothing quite as difficult as waiting. When we are in the midst of difficult trials, time often appears to stand still. more

Tough Times

Hope is overwhelming confidence in the God who can do anything with anyone at any time in any place. more

Hope in Difficult Times

One aspect of prayer is thanksgiving. Send God some roses of thanks today! more

Gratitude

When trouble comes, the world needs to see us flying into our Father’s arms. People today are desperate for that example; that God is all we need. more

Relationship with God

Where does God have you at the moment? Have you unpacked your suitcase? Learn to accept and settle in wherever God sends you. more

God's Will

We can experience a sense of calling every day as God sets our agendas. more

Relationship with God

We often come to the end of ourselves. We run out of energy, strength, even ideas. But we will never run out of God! more

God can bring good out of a bad situation. Will you trust Him? more

Tough Times

Learn what it means to listen to God and how to hear His voice. more

In a society that is market driven and filled with “people worshipers,” the Church needs to be careful that it doesn’t allow the world’s values to drive ministry. more

There is something incredibly comforting about someone “just being there” when life gets hard. more
