We greet you in the name of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. I am reminded of what the Apostle Paul told young Timothy about the terrible times in the last days (2 Timothy 3:1-5). The current state of the economy and our society as a whole provides the evidence of a world that is in need of a Savior, who is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ spoke to us in the parable of “The Vine and the Branches,” He made a powerful statement in John 15:5, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” Jesus is clearly making us aware of the reality that life without him equals nothing.

As a church of the Body of Christ, we are committed to continuously announcing the importance of each individual seeking first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and each individual placing his or her trust in God to empower him or her to have the abundant life in which Jesus Christ spoke about in John 10:10. Remember, God loves you so much that He is willing to accept you no matter what you have said or done, He only requires that you accept

His Son Jesus Christ as your Savior. You have not truly experience how wonderful life is until you renew your relationship with God through His Son Jesus and you are empowered by the Holy Spirit to live a victorious life. The wonderful thing about having a relationship with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, is that you never have to face the trials and the temptations of this world alone. The greatest decision you could ever make in life is to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior.

We pray that through songs, prayers, teaching, and preaching that God with speak to the depths of your soul (emotions, thoughts, and desires) in order that you will make a greater commitment in your service to the Kingdom of God, family, church, and the community. May God continue to richly bless you and your family until the return of our Savior Jesus Christ.
