How to Protect Unity at TLC

February 8, 2020 | by: Shea Oakley | 0 Comments

Unity is, or should be, a primary goal in every Christian congregation. With the possible exception of ongoing rank heresy or unrepented mass wrongdoing going on there should be no reason why Spirit-led Christians cannot work through all their differences and get along. The above is, of course, very easy to write. As this past sermon pointed out, ... Keep Reading

Consider Jesus

January 27, 2020 | by: Donna Hack | 0 Comments

How do you see Jesus?  Years ago, I embarked on a project to research divine healing.  Oddly, it led me to a Jesus I had never known growing up in church.  Rather than becoming focused on healing, I became acquainted with the Healer.  It was then that I learned that He made me righteous, not my behavior; His faith is perfec...

The Day God Did Not Heal Me

January 20, 2020 | by: Anonymous | 2 Comments

I was in the midst of enduring my fifth miscarriage last weekend when Chris shared his sermon on prayer for healing. It had been an intense few weeks involving the excitement and uncertainty of a new pregnancy, the fear of something going wrong, the crushing feeling of having our fears realized at the lack of heartbeat at the first ultrasound, an...

Answered Prayers for Jennifer Lawes

January 8, 2020 | by: Jennifer Lawes | 0 Comments

I have always known and accepted Jesus as my savior. However, I have never been to a church with such a real emphasis on transparency. The fact that this authenticity exists with True Life has prompted me to work more towards getting closer to knowing Jesus Christ. I did want to reach out a bit and say a few things on New year's but my circumstance... Keep Reading

Blessings From in Debbie Robertson's Life

After my retirement in March 2019, I had 3 unfortunate and atypical occurrences happen to me over the first 6 months that were frightening and confusing. I am thankful for the many people in our church that were very thoughtful and concerned for me and prayed me through this season. Initially, Donna especially, kept sending me encouraging devotiona...

Hosting the Unity Service

December 4, 2019 | by: Jess Dawdy | 0 Comments

There is nothing like four different churches coming together as one Body of Christ to worship and celebrate ONE purpose together. Though very different as people and churches, we were united in worshiping our King. I think we truly blessed our Father. I saw real fellowship happening both in greeting old friends and meeting new people. We were so ... Keep Reading

Wisdom From the Spirit

November 23, 2019 | by: Dick Borg | 1 Comments

     I laughed last Sunday when Pastor Chris said, “Professional Weaker Brother”, as I’ve met a few of them through the years.  I thought at the time they were over-sensitive judges of everyone’s behavior that was unlike their own—much like today’s coddled millennials living in the safe s...

Enjoying Life Is Not a Sin

November 23, 2019 | by: Shea Oakley | 1 Comments

Intensely enjoying something does not necessarily make it into an idol. If the ability to experience a particular pleasure is God-given, and the way and time in which it is enjoyed is God-approved, it is safe to say that a Christian’s enjoyment of it is God-ordained. Unfortunately, through two-thousand years of church history there have alwa... Keep Reading

How To Know if Something Good Has Become an Idol

November 19, 2019 | by: Chris Francis | 0 Comments

Yesterday we finished our series "Being a Wise Church: 7 Principles to Consider".  But there is one lingering question that was not addressed clearly:  How do I know when something that I enjoy and was once thankful to God for becomes an idol? How do I know when something that can be done out of worship TO God now becomes the object of ... Keep Reading
