    WHAT WE BELIEVE

    1. We believe the Bible to be the one and only inspired Word of God.

    2. We believe all men and women

    are sinners and need to repent

    and change their lifestyle for

    salvation.

    3. We believe in baptism by

    immersion as a part of the plan

    of salvation.

    4. We practice the celebration of

    the Lords Supper each Sunday.

    5. We believe we have the

    responsibility to share the

    message of Jesus Christ in our

    Community and throughout the

    world.

    Making a place for YOU!

  • TWO MINUTE TIMEOUT

    A COUPLE WINTERS AGO I WAS HIKING ON THE CREEPER TRAIL IN THE SNOW. I WAS

    ALMOST OFF ONE OF THE TRESTLES WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, A RABBIT RAN RIGHT AT ME.

    HE STOPPED JUST A FEW FEET FROM ME AND JUST LOOKED AT ME, HIS LITTLE NOSE

    TWITCHING. I WONDERED WHAT IN THE WORLD HE WAS DOING. SURELY THE RABBIT IS

    NOT ATTACKING ME I THOUGHT. THEN HE RAN BACK INTO THE FOREST. IN JUST ANOTHER

    FEW SECONDS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TRAIL I SAW ANOTHER CRITTER COMING OUT

    OF THE WOODS AND STOPPED SUDDENLY. IT WAS A MINK! HE SAW ME AND JOE WHO WAS

    WITH ME AND TURNED AND RAN BACK THE WAY HE CAME.

    BACK HOME I STUDIED UP ON MINKS AND RABBITS. MINKS EAT RABBITS. RABBITS ARE

    AFRAID OF MINKS. IN FACT SOMETIMES A MINK WILL FOLLOW A RABBIT INTO ITS OWN

    BURROW AND THE RABBIT WILL DIE OF A HEART ATTACK BEFORE THE MINK KILLS IT. THE

    RABBIT I SAW NO DOUBT SENSED THE NEARBY MINK AND WAS SEEKING PROTECTION. I

    GUESS MY PRESENCE SCARED AWAY THE MINK. AT LEAST FOR A TIME.

    IN THE SPRITUAL REALM, WE ARE A LOT LIKE THAT RABBIT. WE ARE DEFENSELESS

    AGAINST OUR ENEMY, SATAN, WHO WANTS TO DESTROY US. HE EVEN FOLLOWS US INTO

    OUR HOMES AND FLOODS OUR FAMILILIES WITH HIS LIES. WE NEED SOMEONE TO

    PROTECT AND DEFEND US TOO. FORTUNATELY BY THE GRACE OF GOD WE HAVE SUCH A

    DEFENDER. HIS NAME IS JESUS. WITHOUT HIM ON OUR SIDE, WE WOULD BE NO MATCH

    AGAIST SATAN. BUT WITH JESUS, HE CANT DESTROY US. HARASS US YES BUT NOT

    DESTROY. JOHN WRITES:

    1 John 4:4 You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one

    who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.

    TAKE HEART! BE STRONG AND COURAGEOUS. WE ARE NEVER ALONE. WE HAVE VICTORY IN

    JESUS!

    GOD BLESS US ALL. I LOVE YOU!

    Skiing with God

    Anyone who has been skiing before knows how important the ski poles are.

    They help you start down the mountain, they help you control when you need

    assistance, and can even help you stop if youre going slow enough. I relate the

    poles to the Holy Spirit. It does the same things, helps your start your path to

    God, you can always lean on the spirit to help guide you in the right direction,

    and absolutely can prevent you from falling to sin. But most important thing is to

    never lose your ski pole, you've lost a key piece of your ski outfit. It makes

    steering and stop and going much more difficult if not impossible. Just the same

    if you lose the spirit then you've really hindered yourself. They make straps that

    go around your wrist to help hold on to them just like we have a cornerstone in

    the bible for a secure way to hold on to his spirit. So if you skied before you

    understand and if you haven't you need to search for videos and see how crucial

    the ski poles actually are. Afterwards sit down and relate to the example of the

    pole and Holy Spirit and see how bad a wipe out can be without either one.
