Praise and Worship is all about magnifying and lifting up the Lord.
For fear of stating the obvious, I am hesitant to say this, but one thing that stands out to me is the need for balance in the Church.
I have met so many people in my walk with God – genuine, sincere people – that struggle with balancing that which is Spiritual and that which is Carnal. I am not referring to necessarily Heaven or hell issues – just life. Read more →
Foreword – Baptizo, Greek for Baptize is literally translated as the word, “Immerse”….
The subject of water baptism has long been called a great issue and no doubt has been made such by many church leaders of the past and present. In our study of it, let us first consider its importance, or the necessity of being baptized.
The Importance of Water Baptism:
Christian water baptism is an ordinance instituted by Jesus Christ. If it is not important in the plan of God, why did Jesus command it in Matthew 28:19? And why did Peter follow up by saying, “Be baptized every one of you,” and by commanding the Gentiles to be baptized (Acts 2:38; 10:48)? We must remember two points about the importance of water baptism. First, whatever Christ definitely established and ordained cannot be unimportant, whether we understand its significance or not. Second, Christ and the apostles showed the importance of this ordinance by observing it. Jesus walked many miles to be baptized, though He was without sin, saying, “For thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness” (See Matthew 3:13-16.) Read more →
There are so many things that plague the Child of God. Cares and affairs of this world, stresses of raising a family in the auspice of God, paying bills, reaching the lost – all factors in and of themselves that do not equate to anything we cannot handle. But when combined and coupled with so many other concerns it can sometimes become too much to bear for some individuals.
I believe in simpleness. And because of that – I believe the Scripture has simple Truths that we must adhere to in order to make Heaven our home…

In September of last year I preached a Message entitled, “Let Me Hear Your War Cry“. Inspired by the Battle Cry of the U.S. Military and the fear it instills in the hearts of the enemy.
I said, “TODAY is the day we bring the fight to him!!!!”
“It’s time we stopped sitting down, laying down and shutting up when the enemy of our soul is reeking havoc in our lives!!!
It’s time we pointed our index fingers in his face and command him by the authority given to us in Jesus Name to leave us alone!!! Satan get behind me!!! You have no place in my life. You have no place in the lives of my family, friends and coworkers.
Its time he stopped messing in our finances, in our marriages and our health!!! It’s time we take authority over him….
It’s time the devil heard our War Cry!!!” Read more →
America and very specifically Eastern North Carolina is a land of blessings. She is a land of plenteous. She is a land where God can easily be found – to a degree!
I don’t want to be too critical here – but with transparency, it is obvious that if there is a TRUTH (3 John 3) than there also MUST be a LIE. (2 Thes. 2:9-12) Read more →
