The psalmist declared in Psalm 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”  One of the synonyms for God’s Word is “light” in the Scriptures.  Light dispels darkness.  Light reveals what is ahead.  Light directs our steps. We may not have all the details of the path just … Read More

The African impala can jump to a height of over 10 feet and cover a distance greater than 30 feet. Yet these magnificent creatures can be kept in an enclosure in any zoo with a three foot wall. Why? The animals will not jump if they cannot see where their feet will fall. They will … Read More

Thankfully, most of the people in our region were spared most of the flooding that has occurred. Our desire is to do something to help our neighbors down east.

Each year in the month of September, we set aside the first Monday of the month in our country as Labor Day.  In reality, it is a day that most of us take off from our normal occupational duties and many of us have to really labor around the house as we bring our summer … Read More

I am so thankful as your pastor for every member of our church.  I rejoice that God led you to be a part of our fellowship.  As you went through my Basic Bible Truths Class, you heard me say that we believe that every member should be a minister. Each one of us was saved … Read More

As we celebrate the 240th birthday of our nation, my mind has been taken to our national motto: “In God We Trust.” This has been our national motto since July 30, 1956, when the Congress adopted it as such.  The phrase has been on our national coins since 1864 and on all national bills since … Read More

Just a little over nine years ago, I had the opportunity to attend the funeral service of Dr. Lee Roberson, a giant of the faith.  Dr. Roberson was a preacher of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ for 79 years and a pastor for 50 years.  He pastored the Highland Park Baptist Church in … Read More
