  • One Body

    The scriptures describe the church as a body.  We all understand about a body because we each have one.  We each have different members and organs that make up our physical body.  We each have a head with eyes and ears and a mouth.  We each have arms and legs.  We have a heart, a […]

  • Spiritual Blessings

    The letter of the apostle Paul to the Ephesians begins in a very powerful way.

  • Access to the Father

    In the beginning, Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden.  There they enjoyed every tree that was pleasant to the sight and good for food.  They also enjoyed close fellowship with God.  But Adam and Eve sinned and partook of the forbidden fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  […]

  • Worship In Spirit and In Truth

    As described in the Bible, the Jewish sect of the Pharisees was made up of individuals who were very religious and followed the letter of the law as they interpreted it.  Two notable instances relate to the Sabbath and the tithe (giving a tenth).  The Law of Moses gave specific commands relative to these.  The […]
