Communion

As Often As You Gather

We believe what the Word of God says, "As often as you gather together in My Name."  Jesus was speaking of celebrating Communion in a corporate setting.  This means wherever 2 or 3 are gathered together in His Name.  There was a reason behind it.  He knew faith would arise and healing would happen.  We celebrate Communion together every Sunday Morning as part of our worship.  Everyone is welcome.  If you miss communion....COME.

Overcome by Christ

When Faith Is Tested

Bro. Boniface Gitau taught a great message for us on Sunday, When Faith Is Tested.  It is a message of encouragement, hope and victory.  You may be going through something, especially something physical, right now.  Know that the Lord is going to lead you through it to victory.  Give this message a listen.  It will change your life.  http://www.messiahcommunity.org/sermons/2018-sunday-messages-4/november-43/

Worship

Praise & Worship

Worship is one of the most important parts of any church experience.  Our worship is alive and dynamic.  We believe in coming into the Lord's presence with thanksgiving and songs that speak to Him.  You should feel free to express your gratitude for the grace given at the Cross and ratified at the Resurrection in song, dance or humble worship on your knees.  Join us each Sunday morning for the experience of WORSHIP!! 

Deep Water Wednesdays

Deep Water Wednesdays

Catch us Wednesday night at 8:00PM for a lesson on The Power Of A Thankful Heart.  We will be examining how the attitude of your heart changes the situations of your life, especially when you are thankful for the opportunity to show the glory of God through a situation or trial that might just be testing your armor.  This will give you a great perspective as you prepare for the Holiday.

No class Wednesday November 21.  New series starts November 28.

 

Heaven

My Unrighteousness Exchanged For Christ Righteousness

Many people struggle with the "sins" of their past.  They are haunted with a sense that they are not worthy of complete, total and final forgiveness.  After all, our society and religions demand a judgement and punishment for sins committed.  Even the ones nobody realizes we have committed.  The problem is that even though nobody else knows.....we know.  So it becomes very easy when things don't go our way or bad events happen in our lives to tell ourselves that somehow we ultimately deserved it anyway.  If God is merciful then He also has to be righteous!! Right!?!?

This is code for, "you deserve punishment."  But what if in the realm of righteousness, true righteousness, there would be no penalty for sins committed?  What if you could stand before the Almighty God of the universe completely and totally in right standing, guilty of nothing at all.??  Would you accept that outcome?  Could you find it in your heart to receive in the inner most chambers of your heart and mind complete exoneration for all the known and unknown errors of your life?  Sadly many do not know that this option exist so they make no attempt to receive it.  If they believe there is an ultimate God out there somewhere who will ultimately judge men according to their deeds, they most often believe there isn't a thing they can do about their own end result.  If they don't believe there is a God at all then they simply live life ignorant of the blessing of true unbridled freedom from conscience. 

The option does exist and it is a person not an action that opens a human life to live totally free from guilt, shame and any fear of eternal judgement.  That person is Jesus the Christ.  He is the Son of The Living God who stood before His Father and declared by royal decree that all of mankind, regardless of culture, upbringing, social economic status, severity of sins committed or good deeds done, were declared in right standing.  Not by works of right standing that any could or would do.  Not at the cost of an accounting sheet that kept track of our good and bad deeds.  He declared us all not guilty and in right standing because of His satisfaction of the requirements of holiness and righteousness.  By taking all our efforts on Himself to become righteous, He once and for all accomplished what man could not.  He satisfied the demands of the universe for judgement.  

But what do I have to do??  Glad you ask!  All you have to do is accept that for yourself.  Claim His righteousness for yourself.  Make the decision in your mind and heart to believe the story.  Accept that this person who lived in the flesh 2000+ years ago had you in mind when He accepted the death on the cross as payment for sin, unrighteousness, human error, iniquity, bad judgement, and any other thing that condemns the heart of a man.  He took upon Himself any future punishment for things done wrong in the human condition.  "It is finished", were His final words.  He didn't mean it was over He meant it was just beginning.  Your life lived in right standing.  It is a beautiful thing to experience and live. Change your mind today.  Accept the gift of eternal right standing and begin to truly live.
