Word from the Pastor

...became corrupted because they allowed other religions to mix with Judaism. Ahab, the notorious king who was behind all this, took God's ways lightly. 

1 Kings 16:31 says, "And it came to pass, as though it had been a trivial thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Sidonians; and he went and served Baal and worshiped him."

Ahab tolerated sexual immorality, bribery, and even child sacrifices. People sinned freely and felt no conviction over it.  In the darkest hour of both the Nation and the Church, Elijah stood for God.

It is time for us as God's people to take a stand for righteousness. Like Elijah, our daily lives should be so near to God's heart that when we see the present spiritual decline we can say, with God's authority, "this should not be." God's feeling should be our feelings. We must speak the Word of God with boldness and authority. We must hide ourselves in the presence of God to be walking in His divine authority and power.

God Bless You All and I look forward to seeing you in church.
