A Life of Praise

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Churches of all denominations, all over the United States, have difficulty retaining those who come and profess faith in Christ. A person who comes to faith in Christ is a “new creation” having been born again. This new Christian is not born fully developed and spiritually mature.

Just before ascending to heaven, Jesus gave us a command: make disciples by baptizing and teaching all that He

Learning the Rules

The fire alarm went off in the middle of our Sunday morning worship service. I asked the ushers to check and see if it was legitimate or a false alarm. In a few minutes, they reported a child in the nursery had pulled the fire alarm. There was no fire.

by Dr. Don Kuehle

The institution of marriage is as old as Adam & Eve. In the beginning God, in his divine wisdom, designed marriage to be between one man and one woman. Marriage is the bedrock upon which the family is built. And the family is the key to a solid society. As marriage goes, so goes society.

Divisions Vanish in Christ

by Pastor Steve Ellison
