  • Wise men - Then and now

    There are so many questions about the wise men who journeyed to see the newborn King --- who were they?  From where did they come?  How did they know to follow the star?  How many were there? 

    They seem to come out of nowhere, worship the newborn King and disappear back into nowhere.  Legend tells us things about their origin, their number and their person.

  • Bethlehem - Then and Now

    At Bethlehem God became flesh and dwelt among us. The Lord of heaven came down to earth. This amazing Christ who came to Bethlehem wants to come and live in our hearts. He will spiritually come in, live and fellowship with us if we will invite Him.

  • Three Christian traits to strive for in 2018

    As we approach the end of 2017 and launch into 2018, many of us will be making resolutions for the new year. These resolutions will range from losing weight to spending less time with technology and more time with actual people. But one resolution that must ever be present in the life of a believer is to live out a life that is centered on the leading and presence of Christ. The Apostle Paul declares to a young Timothy three important characteristics of a believer in 2 Timothy 2:4-6 in the usage of three illustrations.

  • Come ye lowly

    The Bible says, “there were some shepherds” (Luke 2:8) --- simple, ordinary shepherds. It was to these ordinary and lowly men that the angel announced the birth of Jesus Christ.

  • Family probs

    Got family problems? Drama? Division? Discord? If so, you aren’t alone, and this Christmas season can be extra difficult as you prepare to spend time with those who may be difficult to be with, so what should you do?

  • Which Jesus do you choose to follow?

    At the end of 2015, the Gallup Poll released data stating 75% of Americans identified with Christianity. This number was down by roughly 5% since 2008, but still stands as a overwhelming majority of individuals within our country. At the same time, we find that the gathering of the church across America is in a state of plateau or decline. The ultimate question then must be asked, “Which Jesus is being followed?”

  • Joseph: obedient to God

    As we consider the people at the birth of Jesus the Christ, let us turn our attention to Joseph. Some have referred to him as the forgotten man at Christmas. We sing of the Christ child, the mother, the shepherds, the angels, the wise men and even the bells on Christmas day, but there is little mention of Joseph.

    There is not a single word he utters recorded in the gospel story. He is the silent servant who acts rather than speaks. He is mentioned in the gospels of Matthew and Luke and then fades from the scene.
