What is the purpose of becoming a Christian? For some, the answer to that question may be, “It is so that we can go to Heaven when we die.” Going to Heaven is a wonderful benefit of embracing Christ, but the Bible clearly explains that we have a greater purpose. There is much…

There are some voices out there today that would say that the Church as an institution is irrelevant and unbiblical. They would suggest that we no longer need buildings to gather in, leaders to teach and guide us, and gathered congregations to worship and serve. It is ironically coincidental that these “voices” typically come from…

The hill where Jesus was crucified is called “Golgotha,” or the “Place of the Skull,” due to its shape which resembles a human skull. Jesus dying at the “Place of the Skull” is a representation of the healing and restoration for our minds. He died so our minds could be free from thoughts and ideas…

God did a wonderful thing when He used Moses to free the Hebrew people from slavery in Egypt, as recorded in the book of Exodus.
