“The Sifted Generation, Tested, Tried, and Found True”

This is our Pastors latest book. Across the land, persecution is intensifying against Christians. For the first time in history the persecution of the saints of God has gone global!! Very soon the faith of Christians and churches all over the America is going to be put to the test. Even as we speak, hatred and antagonism toward Christians is making headlines across the nation. Will you be able to stand boldly for Christ when called upon?
The Sifted Generation is a resource to help believers understand the seriousness of what is confronting us. It also gives loving counsel on how to face the coming onslaught and reveals why our generation is witnessing the alarming rise of darkness. The world is choosing its sides and the stage is being set for soon return of the Lord Jesus Christ! Are you ready?

Bible Studies and Worship


Tuesday Mens Bible Study 6:15 AM

In the Dust of the Rabbi (Jesus)

dust_ofthe_rabbiLearning to Live as Jesus Lived

During his ministry in Israel, Jesus called and trained disciples, His “talmidim.” Their job would eventually be to bring His message of redemption to all the nations, Jew and Gentile. What would happen when they began to make disciples of their own and the gospel began to spread to a Greek and Roman world, to cultures completely unfamiliar with the God of the Jews? Follow the rabbi through Israel and Turkey as you explore what it meant to be the message of Jesus to all nations.

Angels - Who They Are and How They Help Study GuideLadies Bible Study every Tuesday Morning!


Join Joyce Mancke and a host of ladies for “Angels” By David Jeremiah Tuesday Mornings at 10:30 am! People have long been fascinated by stories of angel sightings, yet many contemporary beliefs about angels are based on misconception and myth. In Angels, Dr. David Jeremiah uses Scripture to unveil the remarkable truth about these agents of heaven and their role and work in our world. Dr. Jeremiah’s book will capture the attention of readers of all ages who seek a broad and thorough survey of Scripture that clearly separates fact from fiction as it relates to angels. Answers these questions: What are angels? What is their role in God’s plan? Are they present? Do they appear? Do they give us personal insight? All ladies of all ages are welcome to attend.

Sometimes we have a concert, other times a movie, but we always are doing something to lift up the name of Jesus.
