Our Fall Revival and Renewal Services with guest speaker Jason Pratt are off and running. Sunday morning Jason shared his journey of faith and how he came to receive and follow Jesus. He also spoke of the approach he takes when sharing his faith, quoting I Peter 3:15:
"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have."
Last evening his topic was Biblical Discernment.
Jason's main text was Matthew 24:1-25, and he talked about the importance of possessing biblical discernment. For those that don't, there will be limited or stunted spiritual growth, backsliding, a lack of assurance of salvation. For those who DO possess biblical discernment, they will experience a growing faith, spiritual maturity, victory in trials, a love for God and His Word, an assurance of salvation and eternal life.
Over the course of the next three evenings we'll be looking at "excercising biblical discernment."
Be sure to join us the next three evenings (Monday through Wednesday) at 7:00pm as we look to grow in our faith and deepen our relationship with Jesus.

"...and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you,... (I Peter 3:15)
Many Believers feel inadequate when it comes to talking about their faith. They know what they believe, but often times are afraid to enter in a conversation about Jesus for fear of not being able to truly defend their faith.
This Sunday marks the beginning of our Fall Revival and Renewal Services, and our guest speaker for this 4-day event will be Jason Pratt. Jason is a former atheist who attempted to disprove the Bible but met the living God instead. This Sunday morning Jason will be speaking on "What is the Reason for Your Hope?" The topics that will follow include:
Sunday evening (7:00) - "Biblical Discernment"
Monday evening (7:00) - Apologetics and Evangelism, and Encouragement to all Believers!"
Tuesday evening (7:00) - The Science of Faith (Part 1)
Wednesday evening (7:00) - The Science of Faith (Part 2)
If you are one that has a fear of talking about what you believe, we encourage you to come out to these five special services and allow God to speak to you and help you overcome this obstacle.
NOTE: Due to our Special Services, there will be no service at 11:00 in the Chapel as we'll combine the two 11:00 services and meet in the Auditorium.
