Keeping it Real

by

Zone V tour into Plymouth have been cancelled since the passage of hurricane Maria. Having an inability to provide an excursion to four different tours this week would love to have open communication to the situation.

The season has started, and we have been waiting 8 long weeks for our income to return. I cannot express the disappointment, and frustration we feel largely based on a lack of communication. Words like”soon, later, sometime, check back with me….” are not communication! Continue reading →

Initial thoughts…

by

Instead of Christ followers focusing on changing laws, or the actions of our government we could focus on changing ourselves to be more like Christ. What if we as a community truly did follow the narrow way, and had abundant life? IF we as a church chose to walk out the living word of God in our lives day to day, sold out for him, what would it look like and how would Gods image be reflected in us and in turn into society? If our hearts were truly like “a dear panting for water,” would the hearts of our neighbors be changed? Could we once again be the salt and light of a lost world?

Christ Came to Fulfill the Law

by

I have wondered in the past if the “grace message” is the blame of all the compromise that I see. However the only way that could possibly be the fact would be because of ineptness of ministers to truly minister via the Holy Spirit the full heart of the grace message.  Grace is an amazing thing, and it is a gift given to the New church, to those us so lucky to live in the generations after Christ death on the cross. The blood of Jesus has provided more then we will ever comprehend in this small faceted dimension that we find ourselves presently in. Continue reading →
