Faith and Adventure: Following Jesus 365

There is a God. God loves you very much and He is good to us! God desires for you and I to know Him, to make contact with Him and to remain in contact with Him. God wants us to understand Him in a more powerful, personal, and dynamic way than we did in 2017. We all need to have a consuming passion to know Jesus more (more than just head knowledge). It’s about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Do you know Jesus? Are you following Jesus 365? Let’s get to know Him better this year!

Challenges for the new year:

  1. Begin the new year with a commitment to reconnect with the King.
  2. Read the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John)
  3. Watch movies about Jesus’ life
  4. Take advantage of your spiritual opportunities (Sunday School, small group Bible study, etc.)
  5. Follow Jesus’ example

Blessings,

Freedom – The Truth Will Set You Free (John 8:31-22)

Good News Testimony by Libby McCray

Libby McCray, wife of Pastor Carl McCray, shared her powerful testimony today. The devil is good at what he does. Don’t let the devil fool you and tell you that you aren’t ready to be a Christian. Don’t wait. Get right with God today.

Message from Pastor Carl McCray

Pastor Carl McCray taught from John 8:31-32, “To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Sometimes we get confused about what freedom really is. We think freedom is getting to do whatever we want whenever we want. However, the fact is, no one has freedom from the consequences of their actions. Freedoms have a price. Ice cream for breakfast has its consequences. Doing what we want whenever we want has its consequences. Pastor Carl spoke today about the path to true freedom. We experience true freedom when we choose well. Have you chosen to go all in for Jesus? Have you chosen to hold to God’s teachings? Jesus Christ came to set you free. Are you free? I pray you experience the true freedom found only in Jesus!

Sermon: It’s time for change. If not now, when?

Everyone has a choice to make today…

  1. You can choose to live for yourself, or
  2. You can choose to die to self and live for Jesus.

Everyone is in one of these two camps.

It's time for change!The word “die” is not negative here! Jesus speaks about this in John 12:2-25 (NIV), “Jesus replied, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds. Anyone who loves their life will lose it, while anyone who hates their life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” Just like a grain of wheat must die in order to bear many fruit, we must die to ourselves and live for Jesus in order to spread the Gospel and bear fruit for His kingdom.

How the Lord Comforts His People 

Scripture: John 14

Carl McCray, Pastor


Do you really believe Jesus is with you?  We are all a little like Doubting Thomas, aren’t we? Remember, Thomas was the disciple who doubted Jesus was raised from the dead.  In John 20:25, Thomas tells the other disciples, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”  We know how it ends.  Thomas saw Jesus, the nail marks and the would in his side.  Jesus tells us all in John 20:29, “…blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”  Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you.”. 
Listen as Brother Carl teaches how the Lord comforts his people.  Receive comfort from:
  1. His Presence – John 14:1
  2. His Promises – John 14:2
  3. His Person – John 14:6
