5 Reasons You Need to Join a Church

1. FOR ASSURANCE. While a person should not feel he needs to join a church in order to be saved, he ought to join a church to be certain that he has been saved. Christians, those who are indwelt by the Holy Spirit, will naturally gravitate towards other Christians and will desire to be with them, to learn from them, and to serve them.

The Bride of Christ

It’s easy to grow discouraged at the state of the church...


As a person who invests a lot of time and attention to studying the church, her health and what Jesus requires of her, I often find myself prone to lamenting her state. Writers from all backgrounds and denominations have written about the church, and I have read many of these books and publications. The standard book begins with a few chapters outlining all the ways the church has failed with the rest of the book providing the solution. If only we did this or that or the other thing, we would make the church what she was intended to be. I haven’t read too many books that give the church a pat on the back and say “good job!” Maybe for good reason. Maybe not.

Christianity for the 21st Century

In last month’s column, I made the case that orthodox Christianity has become genuinely countercultural. The “default settings” of American culture are inherently at odds with apostolic Christian faith. If we intend to remain faithful, and if we seek to be trustworthy stewards of the faith that has been passed on to us, we need to be more deliberate in our practices than American Christians have ever needed to be before. Here are three specific suggestions to consider.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.Proverbs 22:6 (RSV)


Proverbs 22:6 promises us that our children will not depart from the teaching we provide them.  Do you know a family where children never stray?! The blessing is that most will return to the solid family teachings if the atmosphere has been a loving, respectful, healthy, character building and values based.  Below are some practical things to consider when sending your child off to college.

Meek, Like a Warhorse

The Bible has been translated into English for hundreds of years by scholars and theologians. But occasionally it comes to light that our language has changed so much that another interpretation of a word may be more accurate. Some 30 years ago I heard that said about the word meek. 


“Christ has no body on Earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours.  Yours are the eyes through which Christ’s compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.”

–Saint Teresa of Avilla


A few years ago, an organization began in Montgomery that has become the true hands and feet of Christ.  Transformation Montgomery is a faith-based community development organization that has focused its thoughts and efforts on the Garden Square neighborhood located in the Chisholm area of north Montgomery.  In this area, they have transformed not just houses for families to move into, but also the lives of these families.

Deliver Your Flowers Today

Hebrews 3:12-13: “See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.”
