Americans are battling depression at record levels, suicide rates are up, and the surveys say everything gets even worse at Christmas season. But there is help for the child of God. We hope you can be with us this weekend for a special message from Pastor Ray on how we can defeat the debilitating spirit of depression.

    The Jews of Jesus' day did not mind Jesus healing the paralytic but were offended when Jesus forgave his sins. Today we have opposite problem. The Church is comfortable with our message that Jesus forgives all our sins but gets uncomfortable if we say that Jesus heals all our sicknesses. Yet the obvious answer to Jesus' rhetorical question in Matthew 9:5 is it's just as easy for Him to heal His people as it was to save them!

    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.

    Train up a child in the way that he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it. - Proverbs 22:6
     
    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.

    2 Corinthians 11:4

    The "Christian" cults continue to be a "Trojan Horse" within American religious culture, bringing spiritual chaos and confusion into countless communities. We hope you can be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray identifies the major cults of our day and the 3 ways you can recognize them.

    For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine...1 Timothy 4:3

    What evolution is to the biblical worldview of creationism and socialism is to the biblical worldview of civil government, so is dispensationalism to the biblical worldview of God’s plan for the end-times. It is a fundamental error that has put God’s people into spiritual paralysis and hindered the advancement of the Kingdom of God.

    The greatest threats to the Church do not come from outside the Church but from within the Church. We hope you can be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray begins a 3 part mini-series in our War of the Worldviews studies on "Defeating the 5th Column", exposing and expelling the enemies that undermine and hinder the advancement of the Kingdom of God from within.

    The 60's sexual revolution gave us "freedoms": hooking up, living together, abortion, homosexual unions, pornography, transgenderism and "safe sex."
     
    The CDC says we now have a "public health crisis" of 115 million Americans with epidemic STD's. What went wrong with "Sex and the City" permissiveness? Discover brutal realities alongside the beautiful design for those in the City of God. Larry Tomczak brings a strong and sobering word this weekend as we continue the War of the Worldviews series.

    You have put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him. - Hebrews 2:8-9 (NKJV)

    The heart of the biblical worldview is the revelation of the Kingdom of God, (the reign and rule of the Lord Jesus Christ), as a present reality awaiting a full fulfillment in the future. We hope you can be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray explores the "now" and "not yet" dimensions of the Kingdom of God, the most important subject in the Bible.

    Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God. - John 3:3

    Jesus did not say IF a man is born again he WILL see the Kingdom of God; He said EXCEPT a man is born again he CANNOT see it. It is very possible to be born again and not "see" the Kingdom of God as a worldview and as a very present reality. We hope you can be with us this weekend to find out why the Kingdom of God is "The Most Important Subject in the Bible."

    "Dear Sirs: In response to your article 'What's Wrong with the World? ' I am. Yours truly, G.K. Chesterton

    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.

    These 8 words can rock your world...and your worldview. All human beings, Christians and non-Christians alike, are subject to "confirmation bias"; and how we handle it really matters. We hope you can be with us this weekend as we get to "The Heart of the Matter", this week's message in our War of the Worldviews series.

    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?"

    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!

    "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.
