Don’t Miss The Signs

In our text we learned last week about a smart, beautiful sister, with a relationship with God who ended up in a relationship with a fool. Her name is Abigail, and his name is Nabal which in the Hebrew means fool. And the truth is that good people, Godly people, can find themselves trapped in…

Becoming a Church of Power Through Prayer

Fifty-six years ago on February 1, 1965, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led more than 250 activists to the Dallas County Courthouse to register to vote.

Don’t Be So Stingy

I truly believe God is saying to the church, “Don’t be so stingy.” What good is it to draw attention to the good God that we have, if we’re not going to tell everyone about Him? Instead, we should be eager to share. We should have the mentality that the grace and love of God…
