The Proclamation

Our pastor's original mission from God was this publication, distributed on the rural routes of our small town. Our church sprang from this initial calling and today you can read any issue of The Proclamation from anywhere in the world!

Savior and Lord

March 2017

Imagine a football player - a benchwarmer - who finally gets his chance in the big game... "Put your helmet on, you're going in!" commands the coach. With lazy, uninterested eyes the player replies, "Oh, I'm not here to play football, I just want to wear the jersey so I can say I'm on the team." Sound ridiculous? This scenario represents a person who wears the name "Christian" but has no dedication to Jesus Christ and His teaching... Read More >>

What is Your Life's Objective?

September 2015

Life is way too short to just simply exist, with no real purpose or meaning.  James 4:14 compares life to a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.  In the short time that you will be on this earth, what are you trying to achieve? Are you pouring your whole life into short-term objectives that will cease to be a blessing to you the moment you draw your last breath? Or have you established your life's objective as one that will be an eternal blessing? Read More >>

If I Were God

September 2014

There are few people, if any, when talking about those in leadership that say, “they are doing everything exactly the way i would do it.” I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say that, come to think of it. Unfortunately, our quickness of opinion is no different in our attitude towards God. The One who put breath in our lungs must be broken hearted when we use that breath to express our disapproval of His decisions ...        Read More >>

God's Wrecking Ball of Grace

March 2014

“I promise.” That phrase doesn’t mean much these days does it? There was a day when a man’s word was worth more than gold. And don’t get me wrong, there are still many people of integrity still today who can be trusted to honor their word. But often, a person's promise is nothing more than an empty phrase. This may not seem like a big deal to us, but I assure you it is a very big deal to God… Read More >>

The Kingdom of God

November 2013

A kingdom is a territory that is under the rule of a king. There are many kingdoms in the world but their power is limited to the territory they rule over. God, who holds the title and patent for the Universe, has supreme authority over everything in existence. Did you already know that? Then why are you still acting as the king of your life? Read More >>

Unanswered Prayers

April 2013

Before I begin this message about unanswered prayers I would like to establish the fact that there is really no such thing as “unanswered” prayers. God answers every single prayer that we pray. Sometimes the answer is "yes," sometimes the answer is "no," and sometimes the answer is "wait." We may never understand why God chooses the answer that He does, so we must just learn to trust Him… Read More >>

Yesterday Ended at Midnight

December 2012

Midnight officially closes out one day and ushers in a brand new one every twenty-four hours. Yesterday is over and so is everything that happened in it. It's pains, failures, and heartaches are all over. The only part of yesterday that can haunt you today is the part that you continue to dwell on... Read More >>

The ABCs of Faith

February 2011

"It's as easy as ABC and 123." That's what we say when something should be very simple and easy to understand. Isaiah 35:8 signifies that God has established the path that we are supposed to walk in life that leads us to Heaven. Read More >>
