Why GO to Church
Posted by Tim Brooks
Senior Pastor Tim Brooks from Christian Ministries Church in Hot Springs, Arkansas, challenges us with the question, "Why go to church?" In a time when churches are being discouraged and, in some cases, even banned from meeting, is it really that big of a deal to meet in person? After all, online church is church, right? It's definitely more convenient and less time consuming. Please listen as Pastor Tim breaks it down and powerfully reminds us why in-person church is not just better, but neccessary for the Christian.

    A Relationship With God Part 7
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Would heaven be inviting to you if you had could have everyone and everything that you loved and held dear here on the earth except for Christ? Pastor Ashley teaches in Part 7 of A Relationship with God series that without Christ we would never have had the blessings in our lives to begin with. He is our ultimate goal, and when we cultivate a relationship with Him through gratitude, we will not desire anyone or anything more than we desire Him.

    A Relationship With God Part 6
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    In Part 6 of our A Right Relationship with God series, Pastor Ashley teaches how to pray for others when their own free will is at odds with what we are praying for them. We all have friends/family that need to be saved or who are making bad choices. What do you do when you can't override their own desires? How do you pray for them? Is there any point in praying for them? Listen as Pastor Ashley gives honest, Biblical answers to those questions that so many have.

    A Relationship with God Part 5
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Pastor Ashley teaches us to rightly divide the passage in Luke 11:5-8, which many have taught as a comparison to God when it is, in fact, a contrast. We do not have to beg God for things that He not only desires to give, but has already given. In the Old Testament, great men like Moses and Abraham had to serve as mediators between God and man; however, today we have Christ as our mediator. He is always advocating on our behalf, but it is our job to position ourselves to receive whatever it is that we are asking for.

    Getting Real Part 2: The Fear of God
    Melanie Bertoglio finishes this two-part message by reminding us that we are to love every aspect of God's character. He is loving, merciful, and forgiving; but He is also holy, righteous, and just. We are instructed to live in the "fear of God," and the evidence of that is obedience.

    Getting Real Part 1: True and False Worship
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Melanie Bertoglio teaches from Isaiah 58 to remind us that the condition of our vertical relationship with God does not rest on what we do for Him, i.e. going to church, reading the Bible, fasting, praying, sacrificing, singing in the choir, etc. While all of these things are important, a loving, intimate relationship with God will manifest itself in our horizontal relationships with others. If our relationships and our communications with people do not reflect the heart of God toward them, then our vertical relationship with God is not what it needs to be. In today's culture, the world needs to see Christians being nice.

    A Relationship with God Part 4
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Prayer is communion with God, and not an attempt to inform a misinformed God. Using the Lord's Prayer as our outline for how to commune with God, Pastor Ashley encourages that if we start and end with praise, all of our circumstances that we are praying about become very small. When we think of our prayer time as communing with God, worshiping and loving Him as our primary goal, we can truly develop a deep and meaningful relationship with Him.

    In the final teaching on Colossians, Pastor Ashley covers Chapter 4, emphasizing Paul's inclusion of the friends and co-laborers who have been a comfort to him throughout his ministry. As Christians, and like Paul, we need to have people around us who encourage and comfort us.
