Born-again?

Many Christians identify themselves as being “born-again” Christians. Perhaps it’s their way of separating themselves from specific denominations, or perhaps it’s a term they use to show others that they really are Christians.

In His Presence

In this era of new age “Christianity” and false doctrines, many Christians don’t know that their soul craves to be with God. He created our soul and put it into a body.

Let’s Be Positive!

Too often Christians get caught up with being negative and criticizing others. Whether it's a group within a congregation or a rant on public media, speaking negative about others only builds up the self-righteousness of the participants. Our focus should not be on what not to do, but rather, on what Jesus has told us to do. The commission Jesus gave to … Continue reading Let’s Be Positive!
