October 22, 2017 marks the celebration of our 89th Anniversary as a congregation. This year’s theme, “But God…” reminds us that God makes the difference in our lives. Ephesians 2:1-10 highlights our condition before salvation. We were dead in sins. We lived according to the ways of the world. We were disobedient. The power of evil that is currently at work in the world was at work in us. We indulged in the desires of our flesh and the corrupt thoughts of our minds. We were just like the total depravity that is in the world today.
“But God…” Those two words provide us with the hope that we need to overcome. We were poor, but God is rich. We were difficult to love, but God loved us while we were still sinners. We were dead, but God made us alive. We were lost, but God saved us by His grace. We were down, but God elevated us and seated us in the heavens in Christ Jesus. We were broken, but God recreated us in Christ Jesus for good works that He prepared in advance for us to do. No matter the condition in which you find yourself, there is a “But God” that can transform your life!
We invite you to join us Monday, October 23-Wednesday, October 25 at 7pm nightly for our revival. Minister Wesley T. Leonard of Orlando, Florida will encourage, inspire and challenge us from the Word of God as we explore how a “But God…” can forever change our lives!
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)” Ephesians 2:4-5 (NASB).
Minister Ross' creativity, wisdom, and insight have inspired community, church and corporate audiences throughout the United States.
