I Love the Church

By: Waylon Bailey ~ I love the church, and I have great admiration for the church which Jesus established. My parents also loved the church and did all they could to be a blessing to the church. My love and admiration for the church is not naïve. Through the years, I have seen the church…

Life Has Never Been Easy

By: Waylon Bailey Life has never been easy, and it is certainly not easy now. We have to deal with human sin and with our enemy who goes to and fro seeking to steal, kill, and destroy. How do we deal effectively with our common problems? First, we must recognize reality. Too many people want to…

I had an interesting day yesterday.

By: Waylon Bailey ~ I had an interesting day yesterday. First, Martha and I worshiped with my mother at the church where I grew up and where I remained a member until I became pastor of my first church. It’s always a joy to worship with other people and especially people you’ve known through the…
