Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" - John 11:24-26
 
Worldviews answer the most important questions of life, and what could be more important than the answer to the question, "What happens when you die?" We hope you can be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray takes a revealing look at the only 3 possible answers to this question and why the biblical worldview is the only one that makes sense.

    For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but are divinely powerful...2 Corinthians 10:3-4
     
    Christians are in a war, but our enemies are not flesh and blood. Our warfare is spiritual and spiritual war requires spiritual weapons! But sadly, many of God's people know little or nothing about their spiritual weapons or how to use them. We hope you can be with us this weekend for this compelling message from Pastor Ray.

    The near total abandonment of God and a radical commitment to the secular worldview in the institutions of American public education has brought our nation to the brink of anarchy and cultural collapse. Our only hope is that God will awaken the parents and grandparents of this generation to repent and return to the biblical mandate to take responsibility for the education of the next generation. The stakes could not possibly be higher.

    Worldviews answer the big questions of life and one of the biggest is "What's wrong with the world?" Many Christians would answer, "Sin", and that's mostly right. But the biblical worldview goes much deeper; even to the very "Heart of the Matter". We hope you can be with us this weekend for a closer look at the biblical revelation of the nature of the human heart, and why it matters so much for all of us.

    A critical piece of the puzzle in our real-life "game of thrones" comes with an understanding of the fact that all human beings are wired for religion.

    One of the deadliest enemies of the Christian biblical worldview is socialism; a political philosophy that strikes at the very heart of the Lordship of Christ and the principles of private property and personal responsibility established in the Law of God. Yet so many of God's people don't know what it is, what it looks like, or why God is against it. We hope you can be with us for part one of a two-part message on "God Versus Socialism."

    "All the answers the Holy Ghost gives concerning man are to humble man. Man is ready to flatter himself and one man to flatter another. But God tells us plainly what we are." - Puritan minister Joseph Caryl, (1602-1673)
     
    The same Bible that tells us God created man for dominion and "in His own image and likeness" paints a most painful picture of the condition of man as fallen from God. We hope you can be with us this weekend as we continue our War of the Worldviews series with Part 2 of the answer to one of life's greatest questions: "What is Man?"

    "What is man that You should exalt him, that You should set your heart on him?" - Job 7:17
     
    Dr. Ronald Nash says, "A worldview is the total of answers people give to the most important questions of life." And the question "What is man?" is so important that it's found 5 times in the Bible! We hope you can be with us this weekend to discover how the biblical worldview answers this great question and how knowing the answer can equip us for life in an increasingly counter-Christian culture.

To this day, it remains the central issue and there is much confusion and controversy! What does the Bible teach on this most important subject? Larry Tomczak returns after his surgery of last month to teach from scripture and bring clarity to us all.

    "The human heart is is an idol factory. Every one of us from his mother's womb, is an expert on inventing idols." - John Calvin
     
    A critical piece of the puzzle in our real-life "game of thrones" comes with an understanding of the fact that all human beings are wired for religion. Man will have his God; either the true God, or something that sits in His place. We hope you can be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray continues our "War of the Worldviews" series!

    I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth has come, He will guide you into all truth... - Jesus in John 16:13
     
    "When all is said and done, there is no pursuit in life more worthy than following the truth, wherever it may lead." - Josh McDowell, "Evidence That Demands A Verdict"
     
    Nothing identifies the true followers of Jesus Christ more than their commitment to a lifelong pursuit of the truth. We hope you can be with us for this compelling message as we continue our series, "War of the Worldviews".

    At Jesus' trial, Pontius Pilate asks a question that has fascinated the human race since the foundation of the world: "What is truth?" We hope you can be with us this weekend as we continue our study of "The War of the Worldviews" with a message that addresses the answer to that question, and why it matter so much in our day.

    The military uses the term "fog of war" to describe the confusion and chaos that soldiers experience in the heat of battle. God's people must deal with the same thing in the "War of the Worldviews." There is so much warfare we hardly know where to shoot! In this week's message, Pastor Ray will be teaching on how to move in the spirit of the children of Issachar and becoming one who understands the times and knows what to do. We hope you can be with us!

    “The arguments of socialism resound through America like never before, and Christians must discern their persuasive but devious rhetoric and stand firm with a biblical answer. The answers to socialism are ‘the king is not God’ and ‘thou shalt not steal’.” - Dr. Joel McDurmon

    We hope you can be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray continues our "War of the Worldviews" series with a second message on "God Versus Socialism", an expose' of the socialist agenda, who is leading it, and how we can derail it.

    "The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people's money." - British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher
     
    One of the deadliest enemies of the Christian biblical worldview is socialism; a political philosophy that strikes at the very heart of the Lordship of Christ and the principles of private property and personal responsibility established in the Law of God. Yet so many of God's people don't know what it is, what it looks like, or why God is against it. We hope you can be with us for part one of a two-part message on "God Versus Socialism."

    "If you find it easy to be a Christian, you probably aren't one." Matt Walsh 
    Jesus tells us that our eternity will be determined by one of 2 choices: the "narrow gate"  that leads to life or the "broad gate" that leads to destruction, and that "many" will be lost and "few" will be saved. We hope you can be with us for this week's compelling message that exposes the false gospel being preached today that offers an easy way to heaven and a comfortable path along the way.

    In Matthew 7:1, Jesus commands that we "Judge not". In John 7:24, He commands us to "Judge righteous judgment". Our Lord was not confused. There is no contradiction here, just much misunderstanding about the difference between judging righteous judgment and the terrible sin of judgmentalism. Every Christian needs to know the difference.

    Jesus said, "Judge not, lest ye be judged". And it is the most misunderstood command in the Bible. The world is quoting it to the church to shame us into silence. The church is quoting it to itself to make sure we are politically correct. What a mess.

Dorothy Sayers, a close friend of the great C.S. Lewis, once said:
 
 "The incarnation is the most dramatic thing about Christianity; and indeed, the most dramatic thing that ever entered the mind of man."
 
 But in recent years, the busyness of the Christmas season has tended to smother out our appreciation of the amazing account of the God who "became flesh " and the practical implications it has for how we live our lives today.

The Gospels of Matthew and Mark include the account of Jesus' interaction with a seemingly well qualified seeker of eternal life. The Master's response is curious, even counter-cultural to how we present the terms of discipleship today.

In the same way the slavers of Alex Haley's novel disconnected the Africans from their "Roots", so the devil seeks to keep God's people enslaved by separating us from the faith of our fathers.

Pastor Ray concludes this teaching series with how the Church can reclaim the culture for Christ by reconnecting with the radical faith of our fathers and the kind of discipleship that turns the world upside down.

    The Bible tells us that Abraham is the "father of all them that believe," who are those who "walk in the steps" of his faith.  In his 2nd message, Pastor Ray reveals an eye-opening view of what the true Christian life really looks like.  
     
    It may cause you to re-imagine your personal walk with the Lord and how you can help others seeking to follow Jesus!

    In his Father's Day weekend message, Pastor Ray shows why Abraham is called "the father of all them that believe," and how God uses his life as a model for all who are called to "walk in the footsteps" of his faith. (See Romans 4:11-12).
     
    You may be surprised to learn how closely his journey foreshadows Jesus' call to the 12...and to YOU!
