Charleston SC Massacre

An Important Message from our Pastor

 

Once again we have seen the epidemic of gun violence leaving families and communities devastated and discombobulated, trying to answer the question why; to such a senseless and mind boggling massacre. What's most perplexing and disturbing is the massacre in Charleston, SC which happened in a place we all hold most sacred, the church. Until we limit and restrict the easy access to guns in this country to anybody who has deviate intentions, this nation unfortunately will continue to see such cowardly acts that will leave our hearts broken and spirits heavy. Our prayers go out to all of the families of the victims and my colleague Pastor Pickney's wife and two daughters who are left to mourn.

Be Blessed,

Michael E. Bell Sr.

 

Abide In Christ

From 31-Day devotional by Andrew Murray

“As ye have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him; rooted and built up in Him, and established in the faith, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” Col. 2:6-7

In these words the apostle teaches us the weighty lesson that it is not only by faith that we first come to Christ and are united to Him, but that it is by faith that we are to be rooted and established in our union with Christ.  No less essential than it is for the commencement is faith for the progress of the spiritual life. Abiding in Jesus can only be by faith.
