3/25 Sunday Slide

Here is one of the slides we used during our 3/25 service. The decision tree pictured above sorts through options when dealing with Christ's claim to be God. Whether or not we think Jesus is God, Jesus does!

In making that claim, we then have several decisions to make - whether we believe He is God, or don't believe He is God. And if He was God, whether to accept or reject Him.

And if we don't believe He was God, if we think He was lying, or He just didn't know better. To find out more, listen to the message at our website

Here is the video we showed during our 3/25 service.

New Series - CSI Jerusalem

Over the upcoming weeks we'll examine the claims of Christian faith from an investigative point of view. This is a great series for people who have questions like..

- Who was the real Jesus?
- Can The Bible Be Trusted?
- Is Jesus Really the Only Way to Heaven?
- With all the different religions, how can we know which one is right?
- Did Jesus really rise from the dead?

Do you know someone who has questions about the faith, bring them to this series.

Did you know?

Did you know that 85% percent of people who come to church, came because a friend or relative invited them? Was that true for you?

Over the last couple weeks we've had guests at our Sunday services who came because one of our members invited them. Keep up the good work!

P.S. If you want to invite someone to church, we have invitation cards that are available at the information table!

A relationship with Christ as an end and not the means

On Sunday, Mike Hannah talked about a relationship with Christ, as the goal, not the means to a goal. While we come to Christ for what He offers, the greatest gift He offers is himself.

Below is a link to the message that MIke refered to in the Sunday message. This message was part of 40 Days of Discipleship. This message encourages people to look at relationship with Christ as the pearl of great price. Hope you enjoy it.
