The Bible presents itself as the inspired Word of God, truth, God's revelation of Himself, eternal, profitable, and trustworthy. We are instructed to handle it carefully and correctly. I have a friend, who loves the Word of God, and recently wrote the following: "Scripture and the wisdom in it, is a privileged and precious thing. It is God's knowledge. Using it to boast, or to be a clever, show-off would be a huge, huge mistake for anyone. The Bible is presious "living water" from God, and it's incredible to think that we could be capable of using it arrogantly, like it was some kind of "insider" information. I, along with others, need to remember that the scripture is not mine, and it is not for my glory. It's for God's glory! As long as I can remember, and keep that in mind, God's word will help me to realize and believe His greatness and glory. I hope for once, that I'm wise enough to do with the scriptures what He has intended for me to do. Catchy phrases and neat sayings are one thing, but God's word and its true purpose can strike like a sword to our hearts when He talks to us. I pray that we all remember this, and in seeking and finding His wisdom, we will use it for the purposes God intended." Amen, my friend! Well said.

The Old Testament book of Job presents some very difficult lessons for us to consider. These lessons are difficult, because we clearly see them and know they are true, but we don't fully understand them. And if we understand them, we honestly wish they weren't true. Join us this summer, as we identify and look at these lessons from Job.

Those who want to avoid the subject of death, eventually come face to face with it. Most of us have experienced the death of loved ones and friends, and it is a reality that hits hard, when it comes.
Worst of all, we are often reminded that death is no respecter of persons. The young die, as well as the old, and that is when the very foundations of our security and faith can be shaken.
The Bible says that "man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgement" (Hebrews 9:27). It also says that "just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, in this way death came to all men, because all sinned" (Romans 5:12).
The good news is that there is an eternal hope beyond death, that comes through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, because of the fogiveness of sin experienced, when we surrender our lives to Him (1 Corinthians 15:57).
Death will always hurt. We will always grieve the loss of people whom we love. But, with Jesus Christ in our lives, we can hurt and grieve in the context of a wonderful hope.
Do you have this hope, my firend? Turn to the One who said, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who b
elieves in Me will live, even though he dies." (John 11:25)
One of the trademarks of this body of believers is that we are committed to being "One Another People". That is, we strive to live out the 36 Biblical principles that deal with how we are to treat one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. The "One Another Principles" are:
