Welcome!

“A family church rejoicing in the grace of God”

Hi! We are pleased you took the time to visit our church website. Hopefully you’ll learn more about our church family and ministries. It’s not easy being in a culture that prefers to be entertained. As a church family we aim to keep things simple and as close as possible to the instructions in the New Testament scriptures.  Stop by if you love our Savior Jesus and you love God’s precious word. Stop by if you want to know about God’s free gift of salvation in Jesus Christ.

Life Finds All Its Meaning in Christ

Philippians 1:12-26 – Moe Bergeron

Brothers and sisters, here is what I want you to know. What has happened to me has actually helped to spread the good news. [13] One thing has become clear. I am being held by chains because I am a witness for Christ. All the palace guards and everyone else know it. [14] And because I am a prisoner, most of the believers have become bolder in the Lord. They now dare even more to preach the good news without fear. [15] It’s true that some preach about Christ because they are jealous. But others preach about Christ to help me in my work. [16] The last group acts out of love. They know I have been put here to be a witness for the good news. [17] But the others preach about Christ only to get ahead. They preach Christ for the wrong reasons. They think they can stir up trouble for me while I am being held by chains. [18] But what does it matter? Here is the important thing. Whether for right or wrong reasons, Christ is being preached about. That makes me very glad. And I will continue to be glad. [19] I know that you are praying for me. I also know that God will give me the Spirit of Jesus Christ to help me. So no matter what happens, I’m sure I will still be set free. [20] I completely expect and hope that I won’t be ashamed in any way. I’m sure I will be brave enough. Now as always Christ will receive glory because of what happens to me. He will receive glory whether I live or die. [21] For me, life finds all its meaning in Christ. Death also has its benefits. [22] Suppose I go on living in my body. Then I will be able to carry on my work. It will bear a lot of fruit. But what should I choose? I don’t know! [23] I can’t decide between the two. I long to leave this world and be with Christ. That is better by far. [24] But it is more important for you that I stay alive. [25] I’m sure of this. So I know I will remain with you. And I will continue with all of you to help you grow in your faith. I will also continue to help you be joyful in what you have been taught. [26] I’m sure I will be with you again. Then you will be able to boast in Christ Jesus even more because of me. NIrV
