DOCTRINE

SERMON SERIES FOR THE MONTH OF MAY

Doctrine is the word that Christians use to describe the truths of the Holy Scriptures. There are many different denominations and organizations, each with their own view and interpretations of the Bible; their own “doctrine”. There are some doctrines which are universally understood to be non-negotiable. Other doctrines have been and will continue to be sources of debate and sometimes conflict. Come with us as we embark on a journey to understand, as a church, what the followers of Jesus MUST believe and where we MAY disagree.


NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER

Thursday, May 4, 7 pm

“For Your Great Name’s Sake! Hear Us…Forgive Us… Heal Us!” Daniel 9:19

At this crucial time for our nation, we can do nothing more important than pray. As citizens and residents of the U.S. we not only have a spiritual responsibility to pray (I Timothy 2:1-2), but a civic duty as well.  Who but God’s people have the ability to enter into the very throne room of Heaven with prayers and petitions!

Please join us for this very important evening of worship and prayer.
