Supplement your faith!

Many times Christians may feel their growth is stagnant.  They profess to believe or have faith in Jesus, but they may feel that they are not growing in their spiritual journey.  Just as we take supplements when something is not right with our health, our faith also needs spiritual supplements. Peter wrote to Christians who…

Breaking the Mold

By Angela De la Cruz I often wondered why God’s sense of humor played out the opposite of “traditional” molds in my life. I was confident growing up I would be married to someone who was in civil service of some kind, but I had made up my mind that I would not marry a…

Redefine our theological beliefs

Today more than ever, there is a need to redefine our theological beliefs.  Most of us grew up believing certain things, which were passed from generation to generation, without even knowing if these things are true.  We never question those beliefs, we just believe them as true, but we may not even know why we…

God’s will!

God’s will can be both known and unknown.  In Scripture we can see that God’s will can be secret and also known.  God’s secret will (Supreme, sovereign) is God’s plan for everything.  He does as he pleases.  We don’t know what God has plan unless he reveals it to us.  Det.29:29  The secret things belong…

Moving On!

“When we feel the need to move on.  Moving on into the future; not reliving the past.  Moving on into what God has in store.  Moving on by God’s definition involves more than slamming the door closed when our human limit of patience has been exasperated, when we are beyond empty.  God then moves to…

We have been having a great time in our Bible study “Multiply” on Friday night.  Currently we are going through the Old Testament, specifically the Exodus story.  We have been learning who God is through the deeds he displayed on behalf of his people. God is faithful and true to his word.  He had said…

Being Missional!

This past Saturday a group of men from our church attended a men’s retreat in Tranquility NJ.  The theme was “Being Missional”  I know so many people cringe when they hear this word, but one of the definition is to live as missionary in the culture where we live.  I particularly like this definition because…

The Church Matters!

Have you ever heard people who claim they rather have a relationship with Jesus apart from the church?  They want to be Christians who have a relationship with Jesus and not his church.  It is sad to see how many professing Christians display this type of attitude.  However, you cannot claim to love God and…

Year Resolution?

With the beginning of a new year most people tend to make resolutions (eat healthy, quit smoking, join a gym, lose weight, take a trip, etc).  Have you ever considered to work on your relationship with God during this new year?  By the end of January some of the resolutions have already been thrown out. …
