Make a Better Choice

Posted in:

My wife, Vickie, bought a small, green, plastic box for me at the pharmacy. It is divided into seven smaller sections, each with its own lid and a letter indicating the day of the week. Its purpose is to hold the vitamins and nutritional supplements that I am supposed to take each day. We simply refer to it as my vitamin box.

Roundtable Discussion: Rebaptism

Posted in:

Once again, I call on my friends to join me at the Round Table for what I hope will be a lively conversation. Today's subject: Rebaptism.

BR: So Martin, what is it?

MHS: Rebaptism is the practice of baptizing adults who have already been baptized as infants.

BR: Okay. So, do we have anything from church history that will help us figure this out?

We Believe in Jesus Christ

"An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, 'Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins'" (Matthew 1:20-21).

Seeing Through Your Mistakes

Posted in:

Seeking advice and clearing any tension in the air with friends or with grades in school are great ways to take responsibility. Working through mistakes can be very hard and painful, but the Bible tells us in Philippians 4:13 that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

Journeying with God every day means allowing Him to be involved in your life, even in those moments when you make mistakes. He wants to help you become stronger and learn from your mistakes so that you can help others avoid the same ones.

For Such a Time As This

I greet you on behalf of the Board of General Superintendents (BGS) in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Our motivation for mission and ministry is not derived from a calendar of denominational programs and promotions designed by human effort. It comes from a divine appointment that we are given, as Daniel 2:21 suggests, within the 'times and seasons' designed by our good God.

The Past Year

A Chief Serves a King

As told to Don Gardner

Chief John Kimorgo leaned back in his chair, crossed his legs, and shared his story.

The Holy Spirit drives me to do this. When the Holy Spirit works, you just do it. It should be an automatic sequence.

I feel like I cannot do anything else except serve the Lord.
