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."

    And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the Kingdom of heaven suffers violence and the violent take it by force. - Jesus in Matthew 11:12

    We grieve over the increase of violence in our culture. But there is a kind of spiritual violence required of those who want to go deeper with God. We hope you can be with us this weekend for this compelling message from Pastor Ray.

    "You are the salt of the earth...You are the light of the world." - Matthew 5:13-14
     
    Faith in these words of Jesus empowered the early church to "Christianize" cultures and disciple nations. But faith in myths, lies, and half-truths has left the modern church sitting on the sidelines while the battle for the soul of our nation rages on. The knowledge of the truth will set us free.

    Fathers are God's "point men", called to lead their families and deliver the earth from the curse. And they will! Please join us for this weekend for a special Father's Day message from Pastor Ray.

    "As goes the pulpit, so goes the pew. As goes the pew, so goes the nation." - Dr. Michael Youssef
     
    The power of the early American pulpits shaped the nation by providing God's people with a biblical worldview. Yet today, in an hour of great crisis in our civil government, our pulpits are misleading God's people, misreading God's word, and misunderstanding the signs of the times. We hope you can be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray continues our "War of the Worldviews" studies with a compelling message on "Politics and Pulpits."

Might it lie at the feet of an American Christian church that has largely abdicated its responsibility to advance the Kingdom of God in every sphere of government: family, church and state?

    “Historically, the term ‘government’ was always qualified in some way, unlike our present-day definitions. The state was seen as only one government among many.”  Gary DeMar
     
    When American Christians hear the word "government", they automatically think in political terms. This is a sad testimony to the fact that only 19% of American Christians have a biblical worldview. Please join us this weekend as Pastor Ray continues our "War of the Worldviews" series with an eye-opening introduction to the 4 spheres of government that God has ordained to regulate His world and what it means to you!

    "The foundations of the Christian worldview are all laid in the Book of Genesis, specifically in the events described in the first 3 chapters. After that, spiritually speaking, history just repeats itself. The history of the human race proves that our lives are "Echoes of Eden".

    History merely repeats itself...there is nothing new under the sun. - King Solomon in Ecclesiastes 1:9

    The foundation stones of the biblical worldview are set in place in the 1st 3 chapters of Genesis, where we discover the patterns and prototypes that will be repeated, over and over again, throughout human history. Please join us this weekend for a closer look at how world events and the days of our lives are merely "echoes of Eden".

    History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. Sometimes people say, "Here is something new!" But actually it is old; nothing is ever truly new. - Ecclesiastes 1:9-11

    All the foundation stones of the biblical worldview are laid in the Book of Genesis and many are found in the events in the Garden of Eden. In this week's message, Pastor Ray will show how the events of human history are really only "Echoes of Eden" and what it all means us in our everyday lives.

    "Lukewarm people call radical what Jesus expects from all His followers." - Pastor Francis Chan

    The terms "radical" or to become "radicalized" usually carry a negative context these days. On the other hand, it will require a radical commitment to Christ and the authority of the His Word to win the "War of the Worldviews" raging in American culture today. Properly understood, all "real" Christianity is "radical" Christianity.

    "Of all the 50 or so Easter sermons I have delivered, I truly believe that none is more significant than this one; how the God of the Bible hides Himself in the very midst of revealing Himself. We need to know that God may never be more present in our lives than when He seems to be most absent. I invite you to be with us this weekend for this truly life-changing message, "Jesus Incognito"."

    Awake, you who sleep. Arise from the dead and Christ will give you light. Be careful how you walk, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:15-16
     
    Evil days call for an awakened church, risen from the dead and "redeeming the time". But what does that mean? How do we do it? Please be with us this weekend for the 10th message in our "WAR OF THE WORLDVIEWS" series!

    "A lie can go halfway around the world before the truth gets its pants on." - Winston Churchill
     
    The Christian church is losing the culture wars in our country for lack of defending the truth. But, as Pontius Pilate asked Jesus at His trial, "What is truth? " Nothing is more needed today than a recovery of the truth and nothing is more under attack. We hope you can join us for the revelation of the alien worldview that must be defeated if God's kingdom is to be advanced.
