Biblical Friendship


Good relationships don't happen by accident. They take cultivation, work, and a lot of time. That requires commitment! How many committed friends do you have?

Friends can't meet all yo...

What's My Calling?


I hear people ask, all the time, "what is my calling?" This is a great question to ask! One of my passions as a pastor is helping people discover and live out their God-given purpose.

What Serving God Looks Like


What's the greatest thing you can do with your life? Serve God. But, how can we actually serve God? We can't see him. How do we serve an invisible God? Jesus teaches that we serve God by serving others. He said, even if we give a cup of water to somebody who's thirsty, and we do it in the name of Jesus, that's as if we did it to him, God. We serve God by serving others. ...

If You Give This, People Will Feel Loved

The most desired gift of love and the most priceless gift of love is focused attention. It's time. When you give someone your time, they will feel loved.

Known By The Way We Love


"Everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another"(John 13:35 NIV). Jesus told His disciples that the primary way the world would know they were His was by their love for one another. Not by how many weeks we attend a church service. Not by how many verses we have memorized. But, by our love. If you think about it, the way Christ followers are called...
