  • God forms all children in the mother’s womb

    Genesis 9:6: Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed; For in the image of God He made man. Killing another person is a sin, and the Bible makes that very clear.
    Psalms 51:5: For I was born a sinner. From the moment my mother conceived me. Some justify abortion by claiming that the unborn child is only a fetus, a physical body in the early stages of development.

  • God’s amazing grace

    We tell people that we can get ahead by our efforts, but here is the problem when it comes to salvation. We think we can be good enough, go to church enough, pray enough, give enough money to the church or read the Bible enough, then God will love us and save us.  But this is not the way God works.
    Our salvation is based on grace, and grace is the heart of our faith.  It is at the center of our relationship with God. Grace is when God gives us what we don’t deserve.  Who can begin to understand God’s amazing grace?
