Man, oh man! Anyone not standing this morning wasn’t physically able to because there was no possible way to sit still with the Holy Spirit moving like He did this morning! The Shining Stars and the All Male Choir showed out glorifying God with songs and Pastor Bridges taught us that “Faith Without Works is Dead” (James 2:17-26). True faith is more than belief in Jesus Christ. It is when what we believe is evidenced in our actions! When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we don’t keep doing the same things we did before. We get a new talk and a new walk. When temptation strikes, we can say no because we want to please our Father in Heaven and not men on Earth. It’s not enough to just believe, we must change and live our lives they way Jesus showed and taught us how to live. It’s not too late to get a CD or DVD of either of the services, please contact Bro. Nathaniel Sarratt or one of the Audio/Video team members to get your copy today. If you don’t have a church home, we welcome you to join us this Sunday at 10am to see for yourself what God can do!
