Church isn’t a building you go to, but a family you belong to.

John 10:10b
I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

We are full of – Faith, Family, & Fun.

I love my church. Salvations: 200

Water Baptisms: 32

Ephesians 2:20
Built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.

Matthew 18:18 NKJV
Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Ephesians 1:23
Which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.

A family; a bride; a body.

Psalms 92:12-15
The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green proclaiming, “The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”

Planted – To put something firmly and strongly in place.

Jeremiah 17:7-8
But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.

Jeremiah 17:17
Do not be a terror to me; you are my refuge in the day of disaster.

Matthew 28:19-20
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

2 Corinthians 5:20
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.

Our lives will flourish. Our faith will grow strong. 

Our impact will be eternal.

Psalms 92:14
They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green.

Be in Church.

You can be committed to the church but not committed to Christ, but you cannot be committed to Christ and not be committed to the church.

Church is not a “got to.” Church is a “get to.”


Matthew 6:33
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Connected and Contributing

Each one reach one.

Luke 14:23
Then the master told his servant, “Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in so that my house will be full.”

Get planted!
