Pastor’s Note

20 Questions to ask yourself…

It is as old as the Apostle Paul and it comes up in every generation. It is the assumption that preaching the radical, free and accepting grace of God is the first step on a licentious, slippery slope toward antinomianism.… [more]

Struggle To Be Free Or Free To Struggle?
Struggle To Be Free Or Free To Struggle?

I want you to imagine a man who has abandoned reading Scripture and has a secret addiction to pornography. Imagine that same man writing a letter to his pastor, confessing the struggle and asking for help. Imagine a pastor writing a “Dear Abby” type response to his question.… [more]

Questions, Vows & Membership - What for?
Questions, Vows & Membership - What for?

Let’s ask an obvious question: why do we have membership vows at all? Why do we have any membership criteria? Why don’t we just all come together in one building and whoever shows up shows up, and there are no members, no membership? Why can’t it be like that? It sounds much less… [more]
