Catch Some Fish
by John Kelley on May 6th, 2024
Discipleship is not a program. It’s not a “6 months and move on” kind of thing. It took Jesus three years to train the disciples, and He was the Son of God.  Read More
The Heart Of Service
by John Kelley on March 29th, 2024
Our service has an end goal. We are to make disciples. Our service has one source. That is Christ Jesus. Our service comes from one place, worship. When the day comes that we finally get to receive the very thing we have lived our lives for and our hope is made complete, worship will still be there.  Read More
Disciples Are Made, Not Grown

Our testimony is a powerful thing. People who do not read the Bible will rarely be impressed by your knowledge of scripture. They definitely won’t be moved by it.

Let Their No Be No
by John Kelley on March 19th, 2024
The cost of discipleship is great. If you’ve been a believer for any significant time, you know this. To ask someone to be willing to give up their life as they know it and follow after Christ is a huge decision, and it’s one that each person needs to make for themselves. Unfortunately, many people will never get that chance, because someone makes that decision for them without them even knowing.   Read More
Why Should We Go?
by John Kelley on March 18th, 2024
It’s obvious that Jesus wanted us to tell the world about Him and His Father, but what does that look like for us today? I would dare say if we took Matthew 28:19-20 and Acts 1:8 to heart, we would get a very clear picture of what God has called us to do.  Read More
