April Series: "How Now Shall We Live"
An exciting, albeit frightening, era has begun for American believers. Cultural changes are sweeping our country. We are rapidly being drawn into a time when we will be challenged to live out our lives in confrontation from direct and overt persecution.
Since the founding of America, Christians have been able to live relatively free from persecution. Our country had previously embraced, and even promoted, Biblical values. After all, these very values were the basis of our Constitution. The founding father had penned such a document to esteem religious freedom and used it in establishing that rights come from God.
Believers in other parts of the world regularly encounter persecution, prosecution and sometimes fen execution. Persecution is the global norm which we have eluded for many years.
But today we allowing a change in epic proportions in our culture --- a spiritual climate change if you will. And this threatens to reshape our lives and challenge our faith. Hostility and intolerance have replaced toleration. Rejection is turning aside acceptance. Hatred is overwhelming neutrality.
The goal of the oppressors is to silence the voices of believers. Persecution does not and will not discriminate. Everyone who claims the name of Jesus is in the crosshairs.
We will review and revisit the New Testament to learn how to apply the many passages on persecution in new ways.

A Message from Pastor Dan Scruggs

Welcome to our website. We are glad you stopped by and we hope this site will answer some of the questions about the life of our church and ministries. Please feel free to contact us at anytime. If you are looking for a home church we would love the opportunity to speak to you in person.

Women's Bible Study is happening and you are welcome to come and join us.

Ladies as we enter the New Year, so we also find many new opportunities to spiritually grow
in The Word of God, as well as serving The Lord and one another.
On Thursday, January 7th we will take down and pack away the churches lovely Christmas
decorations. Many hands make the job easier! Please join in and help.
Tuesday, January 19th, at 9:30 Ladies Bible Study will begin. Joyce Scruggs will lead us in a study of The Names of God.
May I ask you where you run in times of need? When evil seeks to overtake you, where is your energy spent?
When you are weak, where do you turn?
My prayer is that each of us will make a habit of running to our strong tower. The Bible says, "The name of The LORD 
is a strong tower, the righteous runs into it and is safe." Proverbs 18:10
Please join us in the conference room at North Chapel for this study. Let us continue to KNOW the only true God,
and Jesus Christ whom He has sent.

Prayer is Powerful

Why We Need Prayer

Prayer happens when we humble ourselves before the Lord and make requests for our needs. We acknowledge that we are needy and cannot control or do something or provide for our needs and the needs of those entrusted to our care on our own. In fact, we need Him for all things, beginning with salvation, continuing in sanctification, and culminating in the day when we become like Him for we shall see Him as He is. (1 John 3:2)

A life without prayer for a Christian is a life devoid of faith and spiritual nourishment. Prayer is an exercise of our devotion to God. We get to know who God is through prayer and develop a more intimate relationship with Him. Prayer changes us by relieving our anxieties, comforting us, giving us hope, guiding us, and empowering us to continue on in our walk.

Prayer is not so much getting our requests answered as it is getting to know the God who delights in us and learning His will. As we pray, we grow in our knowledge of God and His power. “Thy will be done” is the prayer that never fails. God will always do His will. His will is best and good, acceptable, and perfect. What better way to get to know God then to pray and watch to see what He does.God knows what we need before we ask Him. (Matthew 6:8) He reveals Himself and His will in prayer. God leads us in response to our prayers. God prepares the answers before we even pray.

One example of prayer is how Abraham’s servant prayed that he would find a wife for Isaac and she would return to Canaan with him. How unlikely is it that a woman would leave her family to follow a stranger to a different land to marry a man she has never met! Yet, Rebekah responded as the servant had prayed and gave him water for him and his camels. Isaac’s response was, “Blessed be the LORD God of my master Abraham, who has not forsaken His mercy and His truth toward my master.” Genesis 24:27

Our God is great, mighty, and powerful! Prayer passes all the bounds of physical possibility.“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Ephesians 3:20,21

Lord, we entrust our lives to You. Cause us to know You better as we turn our eyes to You. We rely on You for You alone are our hope. There is no God like you. Please come to our aid and cause us to live in the freedom you give us in Jesus Christ. Remove anything that will hold us back from serving You.
