  • Satan knows he has a short time (Revelation 12:12).

    The devil’s days are numbered. We see so much confusion and evil in our world because Satan knows he doesn’t have much time left before God sends him to hell forever. Therefore, he is trying to do as much damage as he can now. As a result, we note an increase in crime, immorality, violence, war racism, strife and other evils in our day.

    Mankind has turned their backs on God and Satan is unleashing hellish forces before the end. The believer’s job is to counterattack with militant spiritual warfare.

  • Hodgenville Christian Church is in the midst of a construction project in downtown Hodgenville that members hope will produce an addition usable for the entire community.

The building, which was once a hardware store has been used for several purposes throughout the years and was bought by the church some time ago.
