     We believe in the importance of living with a "heart for Christ", and our goal is to witness of God's saving grace and love.  We hope enforce the importance of allowing God to have providence in our every day lives, and this approach to daily living allows us to do God's will.

     We strive to offer Bible-based principles through our worship services and group bible studies.  Through our ministries, we hope to teach the importance of keeping God first and developing a deeply personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Who’s in Charge Here?

Read Judges 17:1 through 18:31; Luke 4:31 through 5:11

The teenage girl had invited several friends to a party at her house while her parents were out of town. The night started out smoothly, but, within a couple of hours, her friends—and several uninvited guests—became unruly and the house became strewn with trash and broken items as the teenagers did whatever they wanted. The girl had to call the police to come and restore order.

In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as they saw fit (Judges 17:6).

Israel knew the consequences of not having a king or any authority figure. The people sinned greatly against God, and everyone acted in their own selfish interests. How terrifying it must have been to live in such a society! Only when people have rules and authority to guide their lives can they enjoy peace and real freedom.

Those who ignore the teachings and instructions of God’s Word and seek to do what they want to do instead will not have peace. God is King, and everyone must bow and submit to His authority to have a joyous and abundant life.

Prayer Suggestion: Heavenly Father, have complete control of my life.
