How do you evaluate your relationship with God? There are two possible courses in life. The one is positive and the other one in negative. The negative one is well illustrated by the life of Jonah and the other one is exactly the opposite. If the believer is going to have a successful life they will need to evaluate and make corrections. This message shows how a believer can get off track and how to get back on the right track with god. The book of Jonah lays the foundation to bring each person to a point to ask the simple question: "Am I following God's directions for my life?" It is a question we all need to be able to answer positively.

How does the believer reach a deeper level in their spiritual life? We are saved completely when we are born from above and become part of the family of God. Some see this as the ultimate goal and their growth goes not further. The problem is we are imperfect people in an imperfect world surrounded by imperfect people and a lot of temptations. If the believer is going to have a successful life and serve God as he or she should then it requires a deeper and lifelong commitment. This means removing the veil that separates us from God and allowing Him to change us. Discover how this happens and why it is not an instant experience.

June 1, 2014

Where is the best place to learn about prayer?  The Word of God is filled with examples of people praying. It is also filled with the why God answers. If you listed all the prayers in the Bible it would take ten single spaced pages. Some of these prayers are long and some are very short. Some were spoken by kings and others by servants. There are great prayer warriors like Daniel and men who shout one line in desperation toward heaven. Without the Bible we would not know the promises or the power of prayer. We would not have any idea of the real potential of our lives as believers. Pastor Bob gives a glimpse of the magnitude of the depth we can reach in prayer through reading and discovering prayer in the Word of God.

How can a church grow closer to God and discover a deeper life together? The need for a deeper experience and drawing closer to God means a person has to be willing to allow God to make changes in their life. This truth also applies to the local church. If a church full of believers wants to rise to a higher lever they must be willing to go to knees. The importance of prayer in the life of a church is examined by Pastor Bob as he shows the need for the members to grab hold of the old pump handle and work together so the blessing can flow upon the local church as answers to prayers.

What are the six foundational beliefs every Christian should know? They are the abc's or the 123's of the Christian faith. The writer of Hebrews wrote about them. Yet, few believers today are even aware of them or understand how they affect their life.

Taking a look at his own personal struggles as a young child he shows how each of us needs to learn and apply these six if we are going to have a successful life as a follower of Jesus.
