Gospel Intentionality

If you want a church to grow biblically, you must focus on evangelism.  Much of what happens in churches can be attributed to transfer growth vs. conversion growth.  Evangelism can catch fire in a church when everyone assumes the responsibility to grow in the gospel. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen [2 Pet. 3:18]. Evangelism must be out…

Piedmont Women’s Center Baby Bottles

On Mothers Day morning, many of our church family picked up an empty PWC Baby Bottle.  The idea is to take the bottle home, fill it with cash, or checks to support the ultra-sound ministry of Piedmont Women’s Center.  Women come to the Piedmont Women’s Center and are given a free Ultrasound to be able to see their pre-born baby.  Some women who are intent on abortion are convinced by the ultrasound that their baby is truly a living baby…

Dangerous Freedom

This article was on the back cover of the May issue of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association magazine, “Decision”.  It is from Ruth Graham Bell’s book “Legacy of a Pack Rat”.  A powerful testimony about American Christianity.   He had just emerged from existence under a regime that took a dim, even intolerant, view of Christianity.  But now, viewing Christians who lived not only in freedom but in relative comfort this man was appalled.  To him, these Christians seemed casual about their…
