One, I need God to constantly keep me from leaning to my own understanding, from looking to righteousness in me, from trusting holiness in me and from being entangled again in the yoke of bondage, lest I glory in myself.  At the same time, I need God to keep making Christ unto me Wisdom, Righteousness, Sanctification and Redemption, that I might glory only in the Lord.





     “The time of my departure is at hand” (II Tim. 4:6).  Paul spoke of his death as a departure.  The word means “an unloosing, a dissolving into separate parts” (Vine Greek dictionary).  When the believer dies, he is set free.   The holy nature and the evil nature, which are together here, are finally separated.  When my sinful nature is gone, I will truly be set free.  Is it any wonder Paul said, “To die is gain.”  Truly, if I am a believer, the day of death is better than the day of birth.                                                                                              Pastor  Todd Nibert



We are all familiar with the scripture “Salvation is of the LORD” (Jon 2:9).  When a person needs salvation they need another to do all the saving.  If a person can contribute then he only needs some help.  Sinners need salvation!  Salvation is of the LORD entirely, with no contribution from the sinner.




Many sects perform a sacrament or ritual on infants purported to “Christianize” them. Having been asked to perform such ceremonies, I respond:


1. I must not baptize your infant. To do so would be contrary to the Biblical doctrine of Christian baptism. It teaches that this ordinance is for only believing disciples of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19; Acts 8:12, 36-38).


2. I cannot christen your infant. To christen is to “make Christian”. I would lie if I claimed this power. None but God can make a Christian.


3. I cannot dedicate your infant. I cannot dedicate to the Lord what does not belong to me.


4. But here is what I will gladly do for your infant: 1) I will join you in praying for your children. 2) I will show to you from the Holy Scriptures your God-given responsibilities to your children and how to fulfill them. 3) If you will faithfully bring your children to the worship services, I will teach and preach to them the Word of God and the gospel of Christ in the hope that He will save them and use them for His glory. 4) I will tell you that it is not too late to start doing these things.                                                           Evangelist Daniel Parks



WALK IN LOVE... Ephesians 5:2


This is the law of Christ's kingdom. This is the believer's rule of life. This is the characteristic of God's elect. “We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death...He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.” Love is patient, not irritable. Love is longsuffering, not easily offended. Love is kind, not mean. Love is sacrificial, not selfish. Love is caring, not cruel. Love is forgiving, not hostile. Love is trusting, not suspicious. Love is thoughtful, not rash. Love is generous, not greedy. Love is faithful, not irresponsible. Love is lasting, not temporary. Someone said, “If this is what true Christianity is, then there are few Christians in the world today.” He was right. “Faith worketh by love.” The two go together. They cannot be separated. Where there is true faith in Christ there is true love for the brethren.                                                   Pastor Don Fortner





When scripture declares “Christ is All” it does not mean Christ is merely the central part of the gospel.  Men say they preach a “Christ-centered gospel.”  It does not mean that.  It means Christ is the Gospel—"Christ is All.” Only consider a few of the titles and offices of Christ given us in the scripture:


     Christ is the last Adam (1Co 15:45), the believer’s Advocate with the Father (1Jo 2:1), the Alpha and Omega, beginning and end, which is, and which was and which is to come, the Almighty (Re 1:8), the Amen—the faithful and true witness (Re 3:14), the Apostle of our Profession (Heb 3:1), the Arm of the Lord (Isa 51:9 53:1), the Author and Finisher of our Faith (Heb 12:2), the Author of Eternal Salvation (Heb 5:9), the beginning of the Creation of God (Re 3:14), God’s Beloved Son in whom the Father is well-pleased, who God commands us to hear (Mt 12:18), the Blessed and only Potentate (1Ti 6:15), the Righteous Branch (Isa 4:2), the Bread of Life (Joh 6:32), the Captain of our Salvation (Heb 2:10), the Chief Shepherd (1Pe 5:4), the Christ of God (Lu 9:20), the Consolation of Israel (Lu 2:25), the Chief Cornerstone (Ps 118:22), the Counsellor (Isa 9:6), the Covenant (Is 42:6), the Creator (Joh 1:3), the Dayspring (Lu 1:78), the Deliverer (Ro 11:26), the Desire of all Nations (Hag 2:7), the Door (Joh 10:7), the Elect of God (Is 42: 1), the Everlasting Father (Isa 9:6), the First Begotten (Re 1:5), the Forerunner (Heb 6:20), the Glory of the Lord (Isa 40:5), he is God (Isa 40:3 Joh 20:28), he is God Blessed (Ro 9:5), the Good Shepherd (Joh 10:11), the Governor (Mt 2:6), the Great High Priest (Heb 4:14), the Head of the Church (Eph 1:22), the Heir of all Things (Heb 1:2), the Holy One (Ac 3:14; Mr 1:24; Isa 41:14), the Horn of Salvation (Lu 1:69), the I Am (Joh 8:58), the Image of God (2Co 4:4), Immanuel (Isa 7:14), Jehovah in whom is everlasting strength (Isa 26:4), Jesus for he shall save his people from their sins (Mt 1:21), the Prophet (Deut 13: 3, 5; Jn 6:14; Acts 3:23), the LORD our Righteousness (Jer 23: 6), the King of Kings and Lord of lords (1 Tim 6: 15; Rev 17: 4; 19: 16), the Light (Jn 8:12), the Master and Lord of the believer (Jn 13:13), the Sun of righteousness (Mal 4:2), our Shield and Reward (Gen 15:1), our Strength, Song, and Salvation (Ex 15:2), our Passover (1 Cor 5:7), the Prince of Peace (Is 9:6), our Propitiation (1 Jo 2:2), our Portion (Ps 73: 26), the Pearl of great price (Mt 13: 46), the Way, the Truth and the Life (Jn 14:6) and the Resurrection (Jn 11: 25).


     This is by no means all of the titles and offices Christ holds.  And men want to preach something else?  Do you see that Christ is All?  Do you believe that Christ is All?  Christ is the believer’s acceptance with God. (Eph 1:6; Col 2: 9-10) He is the one thing needful (Lu 10:41-42)  If you believe on Christ alone then you have All!
