‘Worship music’ should be based on praise, prayer and proclamation

One of the most divisive topics in today’s church is the nature and application of “worship music.” What is it and how should it be presented?. The goal of music in worship is praise, prayer and proclamation; those three elements are crucial when one considers that our music must glorify God.

Four reasons to read the Bible correctly | Tim Dinkins

There is a lot at stake when it comes to reading the Bible. If you read it correctly, we believe God can show you His holiness and the universal problem of sin. He can use His word to reveal the way of salvation through Jesus Christ to you, and He can show you how to live in a way that is pleasing to Him.

Pray For The Peace of Jerusalem

2 Chronicles 6:12-42 Solomon’s Prayer of Dedication. 12 Then Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord in front of the whole assembly of Israel and spread out his hands. 13 Now he had made a bronze platform, five cubits long, five cubits wide and three cubits high,[a] and had placed it in the center of the outer court.

PEARRELL: The Bible is God's truth

Many years ago, a young pastor accepted a position in a small country church in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. An elderly widow was a member of his new congregation and he learned that, since she lived up in the mountains, she was snowed in and unable to attend church for many months each year.

Teach Us to Pray—Part 3

Have you ever thought about where prayer originates? Where do we get prayer from? How do we know what to pray and pray for? Do we know who we are even talking to when we pray?. Might I suggest to us that prayer originates from time spent in the Word of God.

Does God Make Us Holy? Part II

Last week we looked at Scripture from the Old Testament, particularly in Leviticus, to discover what God means when he tells us to be holy. We found it is not anything we can do ourselves; our holiness comes from God. Let's review three of the Scriptures found in Leviticus. The...

Is there any absolute truth in the Bible?

We have been taught in school and in society to not be arguing over politics and religion. We have been brainwashed by the school system not to discuss these two items in which we might unite together in a common faith. They say don’t be arguing over controversial things. The very opposite is true.


HOMILY FOR THE MEMORIAL OF ST. MARGRET MARY ALACOQUE:. Today we honour the memory of St Margret Mary Alacoque, a French nun through whom our Lord revealed the importance of devotion to His Most Sacred Heart. The visions of Margret were an affirmation of the message of the gospel about the love of God which was made manifest in Christ: “For God so loved the world that he sent his only Son, so that everyone who believes in will not perish but will have eternal life” (Jn 3:16) Devotion to the Sacred Heart simply implies our human effort to reciprocate this divine love, by firmly believing in Christ and making him known to the whole world as we read in today’s gospel: “Jesus said to his disciples: “I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before others the Son of Man will acknowledge before the angels of God. But whoever denies me before others will be denied before the angels of God.” (Lk 12:8-12) Dear friends, each morning when we face God, we express our filial devotion to him. I pray that our Lord Jesus will grant you a share in the first five of the twelve promises he made through St Margret: 1. I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life. 2. I will establish peace in their homes. 3. I will comfort them in all their afflictions. 4. I will be their secure refuge during life, and above all, in death. 5. I will bestow abundant blessings upon all their undertakings. Have a Blessed Weekend.
