Songs are food for the soul, what you sing changes you. Through out the centuries people have learned their faith through what they sang together. Eat good soul food on Sunday and it will cause you to grow through out the week. Here’s how that happens: Singing Takes Sundays Truths into Monday! Sing helps us remember weather it is scripture or biblical truth singing it will help move it form our head to our hearts. We have two voices that…

March Parenting Principle #3

Principle: Your children need God’s law, but you cannot ask the law to do what only grace can accomplish. As Christian parents, many of us know that our children are born with a desperation for God’s law. They come into the world not knowing what is true or what is false. They cannot distinguish between good or bad, and right and wrong. Ted Tripp says, “they need the grace of wisdom that God’s law alone can give.” He further says,…

SING: We are Compelled to Sing!

Alistair Begg once said “Saved people are singing people” “Worship isn’t primarily about music, techniques, songs or methodologies. It’s about our hearts. It’s about what and who we love more than anything.” Bob Kauflin We are compelled to sing because of Christ’s Love. [14] For the love of Christ compels us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; [15] and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live…

SING: Created to Sing!

SING: Created to Sing! Psalm 139:13-14 (ESV) [13] For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. [14] I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

What are Epistles?

Have you ever wondered what the “epistles” are? We have heard people talk about them in church, but have we ever stopped to understand what they are?  Essentially, the epistles are personal letters written to churches and individuals. Elmer Towns says, “While they follow the typical form of first-century letters in the Roman world, they uniquely express Christian truth.”  These authors wrote to express great truths of the Christian faith. They also wrote to explain how a Christian should exhibit…

February Parenting Principle #2

February Parenting Principle Principle # 2:  God never calls you to a task without giving you what you need to do it. He never sends you without going with you.  Parents often times feel discouraged, not equipped, and to be honest, unable to fulfill the task required of parenting.  This thinking will often times distract us to overlook things that are very important, namely that God gave us our particular children, and they are His gift to us on loan…
