1 Corinthians 1:12-31 ESV

12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves[a] or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.

14 For the body does not consist of one member but of many. 15 If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do...

Pastor Donald Curtis

Salvation is one of the basic theological beliefs that is paramount to our understanding of the very love of God and for our entrance into the portals of Heaven. (Eph. 2:8-9)[1] I believe through this amazing testament that salvation has been offered to humankind as a direct gift from God to everyone who would believe and accept it. (John 3:16)[2] There is absolutely nothing we can do at all to earn, e...

My morning drive takes me by the church building. This morning my attention was drawn to the mess that the construction and the rain has made and I decided to pull over. It is amazing to me how what looks like a mess on the outside is so beautiful on the inside, not carpet and paint beautiful, God beautiful.

On the other side of that wall, seven people decided to obey the Lord in baptism.

On the other side of that wall, the glorious Word of God was preach...

Many times we read verses in the Bible and to be honest I'm not sure we fully grasp the amazing message that God is trying to tell us. Some of those verses is in Jeremiah 29:11-12 which says, "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. 12 Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you." In these verses what really catches my attention is tha...

From the quiet of the front pew on a Monday morning, I caught a glimpse of something that I had not noticed before, and it struck me as so profoundly beautiful.

Knee prints.

Knee prints on the altar- still there from the day before. As I enjoyed the sunlight and the quiet, I thought of those that left the knee prints. People that God loves, being obedient to His call to come, humbling themselves, pouring out burdens too heavy to bear, receiving forgiveness...

Don't miss the awe

It is so easy to slip into the pattern of just going about life, isn’t it? We go day to day focused on our never ending to-do list. There are kids or parents to take care of, bills to pay, people and work that needs your attention. Life is short. James 4:14 describes life as “a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” I don’t want to be an alarmist here, but what if you spend your whole life so focused on that “to-do” list and you ...
