Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

Make a splash…
dive in head-first.

“Don't seek to be excused
if God calls you to some service.
What would the twelve disciples have lost
if they had declined the call of Jesus!
I have always pitied those other disciples
of whom we read that they went back,
and walked no more with Jesus.”
- D. L. Moody

“My dear friends,
God is not confined to any one messenger.
We are told that
He can raise up children out of stones.
Someone has said there are three classes of people,
the ‘wills,’ the ‘won'ts,’ and the ‘can'ts’;
the first accomplish everything,
the second oppose everything,
and the third fail in everything.
If God calls you, consider it a great honor.
Consider it a great privilege
to have partnership with Him in anything.
Do it cheerfully, gladly.
Do it with all your heart, and He will bless you.
Don't let false modesty or insincerity,
self-interest, or any personal consideration
turn you aside from the path of duty and sacrifice.
If we listen for God's voice, we shall hear the call;
and if he calls and sends us,
there will be no such thing as failure,
but success all along the line.”
- D. L. Moody
