“… and behold I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20 That is a promise given by our King and Savior, Jesus Christ, upon which there exists no expiration date. This initial declaration was given to the remaining eleven disciples, with implication extending to all who name the name of Jesus as Lord. “Promise,” as defined by Webster’s Dictionary: “declaration or assurance which God has given in His Word of bestowing blessings on His people.” To think that the Creator of the universe has given a......

Shepherd’s Outpost By Pastor Ron Gardner “I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: ‘Whom shall I send, who will go for us?’ Then I said, ‘Here am I! send me.” Isaiah 6:8 Through out Scripture, we see men chosen of God who would by today’s standard be considered outcasts, less than desirable, unqualified.

Prayer: Our Communication with God

God Has Ordained You: A Devotional by Pastor Chuck Smith

Then the Word of the Lord came to me, saying “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations” Jeremiah 1:4-5 Jeremiah’s life and ministry began in the mind of God before Jeremiah was ever born. The same is true of each of us. Before we were conceived, God knew us and prepared a perfect plan for each of us—a purpose we are to fulfill for His glory. As we age, we can look back and see how......

What does it mean to be saved?

To enter God’s kingdom, you must be born again. Simply look to Jesus Christ, who died for your sins on the cross, and believe in Him and His love for you, and that transformation will take place. Thus the question, “Have you been born again by the Spirit of God?” If not, the process is very simple. See, it all depends on your relationship to Jesus Christ. You can both believe and look in faith to Jesus, who died for you on the cross; or you can continue going on as you......
