"Reaching Forward Together"
Loving God, Loving Each Other, Loving to Share His Story


Click here to meet the Pastor       After the Apostle Paul was arrested in Jerusalem, he spoke of Jesus before the Sanhedrin. Later while in jail, the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: "Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome (Acts 23:10). Notice the admonition given to Paul by Jesus: "Take courage!" This particular verb is only used in the New Testament as coming from Jesus' mouth as something Jesus told His disciples to relate. "Take courage" is uniquely associated with Jesus command to us! "Take courage" is something we all need to hear in our lives.
      Paul heard these words while alone in a prison cell. The woman with a long history of sickness was told by Jesus to "Take heart, daughter" (Matthew 9:22). As Jesus walked on the water to rescue His disciples frightened by a storm, He said "Take courage! It is I. Don't be afraid" (Matthew 14:27).
      What is it in your life today that needs to hear these wonderful words, "Take courage"? If you're struggling with illness "Take courage." If you're trying to rebuild your house or deal with a personal failure, "Take courage." As Christians we are commanded by Jesus to always have courage because He is near and with us. Jesus is our source of victory and confidence in all of life's challenges. Yes, we still will struggle and face trials, but we can face these with courage!
      P.S. To see where this verb is used in the New Testament, see: Matthew 9:2, 22; 14:27; Mark 6:50, 10:50; John 16:23; Acts 23:11.

Priority 1

      Priority 1 is to seek and save lost souls! Invite people to Bible Study and Worship every week. Continue building spiritual relationships with those who need Christ in their lives. Pray about what you can do today to help someone come to know Jesus. Make it your Priority 1 this year! Who will be your "1" this year? God cares about people who need a saving faith in Jesus. Also, be in prayer for the Northwestern Caribbean Baptist Theological Seminary in Georgetown, Grand Cayman. Over the next five years, our church is partnering with these folk to help train and educate pastors and ministers in this area.
      Hope to see you in church this Sunday,

      Dr. Stephen Dollar
