Why Baptism?

I am writing about baptism today because I hope you will trust Christ with all your heart and prayerfully consider following Him in baptism.

A Checklist for Taking the Next Step in Your Faith

During that brief time in my life when I flew a private plane, we always used a checklist to make sure that everything worked. After all, you never want to hear “oops” in the cockpit. You will be happy to know that a checklist is standard practice for the most accomplished airline pilot. If it…

I’ve always been impressed by Vacation Bible School. I can remember several important events in VBS from the time when I was a kid. I remember a story about a POW. Only a few students knew what a POW was. We learned a valuable lesson that day about depending on God and knowing that God…
