Welcome to the Evangelical Free Church of Embarrass

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.

A word from the pastor with your coffee..


I stood there for a few minutes, observing the Christmas crowds, the overflowing shopping carts, and the festive decorations.
I remember thinking, “This happens every year.  It’s a cycle that keeps on coming around, and we are all willing to be a part of it!”
Here is some good news:
We don’t need another Bethlehem.
Every year, we may celebrate the fact that the Christ-child was born in Bethlehem, but it happened only once.  Jesus came to this world.  The Word became flesh and lived among us.  He taught God’s truth.  He set a holy example.  He showed us what God is like.
We don’t need another Bethlehem.
We don’t need another Calvary.
The love of God was demonstrated toward us, when Jesus went to the cross of Calvary.  On that cross, He bore our sins in His body and was judged in our place.  By His blood, once and for all, He paid the price for the forgiveness of sin and reconciliation with God.
We don’t need another Calvary.
We don’t need another Pentecost.
On the Day of Pentecost, as recorded in chapter two of Acts, Jesus’ promise to send the Holy Spirit was fulfilled.  He came and “moved into” every believer.  Since then, all followers of Christ have the Holy Spirit living in them, to guide and empower them.
We don’t need another Pentecost.
If we don’t need another Bethlehem, Calvary, or Pentecost, then what do we need?
We need to embrace the Christ who came to this world.  We need to turn from our sins and surrender our lives to the one who died for us.  Then, we need to follow the indwelling Holy Spirit, as He guides and empowers us to live for Jesus every day.
