WHY CHURCH?

The CHURCH is not a building. To think of the church as a building is to limit it in so many different ways. The CHURCH is the physical gathering together of spiritual believers. We gather together, because we’ve been brought from death to life and our spirit is empowered to help us live life at a higher level. We gather together to worship the ONE , Who has made it all possible. We gather together to study, learn and grow as disciples set apart to something better than just getting by. We gather together to bless, encourage and serve others, because when we do this we are serving the ONE, Who makes everything possible. We gather together, because we are better, stronger and more powerful together than apart.

Coming together on Sunday is about accountability, community, connection, encouragement, growth, networking, relationship and so much more. This face to face, heart to heart and spirit to spirit interaction accomplishes things that nothing else can. It’s God’s designed way for us to become all that He has created and crafted us to be and then some.

“Do not forsake the assembling of yourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhort one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” -Hebrews 10:25

Why Church? Because Church Is Ministry We Are All In Need Of…

The Ministry OF Relationship! We are a part of something much bigger than ourselves. We belong to a spiritual family that loves us at our best and worst. We are united together as the family of God, a group of men, women, boys and girls who believe in the Gospel “good news” that God made a way where there was no way, so that we might have abundant and everlasting life.

The Ministry Of Example! We need one another to grow spiritually the way God designed us to grow! When we do life together we learn from each other’s failures and successes. We see how “not to do it” and how to “do it”. Learning from failure and success are both important and the good news is: It is not dependent upon you being perfect and never making a mistake. It is just simply dependent upon you living your life, learning along the way and sharing the journey with others.

The Ministry Of Presence! We grow one another! The best way to learn is from one another. When we come together in unity, in spite of all that tries to divide us, it is a brilliant testimony to the rest of the world that there is something (SOMEONE) greater that unites us and ties us together. Young, old and in-between, from every socio-economic background, all colors and creeds, from every walk of life – united in Christ, yielded to the Spirit and in love with God our Creator.

I want to encourage you to find a church that you can be a part of, because you have blessings that someone else needs and somewhere there is someone waiting on you with a blessing you’ve been looking for…

Becoming Powerful!

Breath Is Life! Have you ever stopped to think about what an amazing thing BREATHING is? I mean if our breathing stops, then life as we know it stops. Breath is the evidence of an external force and supernatural source at work in, on and through us. A force and source which allows us to live, grow and experience the miraculous from the inside – out.

Notice Your Breath! Take a moment to pay attention to your breath. Inhale a deep breath and hold it for a moment, now as you exhale, think about and realize the reality of the power of breath. Isn’t it amazing! We don’t have to remind ourselves to do it. We just naturally breath in and out all day and all night long, asleep or awake. Breathing is an awesome gift from our Creator, a gift that keeps giving in so many different ways.

“And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” -Genesis 2:7

When we take the time to become aware of our breath, we are almost immediately reminded of God’s love. Breath is His gift of life to us, which enables us as spiritual beings to enjoy, learn and grow from this human experience. I breathe in God’s love, His endless love, miracles and blessings flow into my life and empower me to remember who I am. I am a child of the Most High God, the Creator of everything and the sustainer of all life. From within and all around me, I find spiritual nourishment from my connection with the divine.

Open up your heart, mind and spirit today. Pay attention to who and what you really are. Not a human being, but a spiritual being, empowered by the supernatural power of the One who created you. Breathe in God’s love, grace and mercy and breathe out love, grace and mercy to others. This participation with divinity is our super power to transform lives and change this world we live in.

Love Is A Wonderful Thing!

Who remembers Michael Bolten? He used to sing a song called “Love Is A Wonderful Thing!” He said: “Love is a wonderful thing, make you. smile through the pouring rain. Turn your world into one sweet dream. Take your heart and make it sing. Love is a wonderful thing…”

There are all kinds of things we call love in this world, but I’m talking about the real deal. The one thing that really matters is love, real love, love that flows from our Creator, to us and through us to one another. Once you have ever experienced it, then you know what real is, because God is love and love is the will of God, because it is who and what He is.

In the spiritual dimension of my living, love is the thing that makes everything else make sense. It’s the thing that helps everything else fall into place and fit together. In the physical realm of life, I often miss out on love, because my physical senses tend to cloud my view by being more focused on ego – who I am, what I do or what I think others think of me. This causes me to get lost in the mental part of life by getting me confused and dazed by the constant barrage of thoughts that crowd and fight for space in my head.

This is why it is necessary for us to slow down, still ourselves and find some solitude, so we can get back to the beat of our heart and hear what really matters. The truth is: God is love and God, who is love created you in love for love. LOVE is what it’s all about! Receive it, Return it and Share it with everyone in everyway you can and your life will take on new meaning and purpose, Which will fuel your spirit to feed your mind with the right thoughts, which will energize your body to all it was created for…

Love is real, recognize it for all that it is and all it has the power to accomplish in your life and living. Commit to opening your spirit, mind and body to receive it and share it, so that it creates a powerful flow for the stuff of God to move to and through your life in miraculous ways.

You are a channel for the supernatural! No matter what you ever find yourself going through, God’s love is powerful enough to see you through. With God’s love you are a miracle worker and can face and overcome any situation that life throws your way. You see, love is a wonderful thing!
