by Delman Coates on May 31st, 2023

Chase “The Great”
by Delman Coates on May 18th, 2023
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” - Galatians 6:9  When you choose to delay gratification and give up what seems “good” in the moment, you will earn eternal rewards. What God wants to give you isn’t just “good,” it’s GREAT. It’s the BEST. God has the very best in store for every one of His children who are willing to follow...  Read More

by Delman Coates on April 22nd, 2023

by Delman Coates on February 27th, 2023
“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” - John 8:32  Oftentimes, people may believe that religion creates bondage and that it only holds a laundry list of things you cannot do.

A Friend of Sinners
by Ministry Support on November 19th, 2022
“I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners and need to repent.” - Luke 5:32  Jesus not only loved those like Him. He loved everyone. And this wasn’t just a theoretical overarching principle. Jesus actually HUNG OUT with people who were different from Him.

“The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” - John 10:10  When Jesus says, “I am the door,” the first thing He is telling us is that through Him we gain access to godly solutions.

What Are You Drunk On?
by Ministry Support on January 9th, 2021
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 5:18-20)  This world has so much to offer when it comes to bringing us fulfillment, hap...  Read More
