Standing On The Promises

Pastor John Mitchell has an encouraging word from God that will help you learn how to stand on what God has promised. Come join us as we worship together and hear an inspiring message from Pastor John.

Sunday Morning March 1st @ 10:30am, Father’s Vineyard

Happy Thanksgiving

10This generous God who supplies abundant seed for the farmer, which becomes bread for our meals, is even more extravagant toward you. First he supplies every need, plus more. Then he multiplies the seed as you sow it, so that the harvest of your generosity will grow. 11You will be abundantly enriched in every way as you give generously on every occasion, for when we take your gifts to those in need, it causes many to give thanks to God.

2 Cor. 9:10-11.    Passion

Christmas Concert 2019

This group is fantastic, they do a wonderful variety of Christmas music arrangements. Make your plans to be with us as we celebrate this Christmas Season. 

Ol’ Jazz is an eighteen member big band that started in 2010.  Our area did not have a big band at the time, so they formed their own.  Ol’ 74 Jazz is comprised of professional musicians and others who work outside the music field. They are not limited to big band era charts; They perform a variety of tunes from different genres including: 

Rock, Swing, Bebop, Latin, Christmas Music and others.

The Battle For Your Heart

The real battle ground for our spiritual well being takes place in the heart. Proverbs 4:22 says, “above all else, guard you heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Notice it did not say, here’s one more thing to consider. It says, above all else, guard your heart.”

Satan knows that if he can get our hearts attached to the wrong thing, he does not have to worry about us growing in our relationship to God. The enemy does not mind us loving God (somewhat), as long as we love something else just a little bit more.

There is always something trying to attract our hearts. The battle is real. Idolatry is when I take anything that isn’t God, and put it in the place where God belongs. We even make idols of our selves by saying, “I don’t care what anybody says or thinks, I’m going to do what I want to do.”

We need to discover how to “above all else”guard our hearts against the lies and deception sent to us by the enemy and stand in the light that God gives us in the Truth.

Pastors Appreciation

Paul told the Thessalonians, “Now we ask you, brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, and are over you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other” (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13).

Dear brothers and sisters, make sure that you show your deep appreciation for those who cherish you and diligently work as ministers among you. For they are your leaders who care for you, teach you, and stand before the Lord on your behalf. They value you with great love. Because of their service to you, let peace reign among yourselves.          Passion 

Understanding Authority of The Believer

DEFINITIONS POWER AND AUTHORITY

Luke 10:19 I have given you authority EXOUSIA to trample on snakes and scorpions and over all the power DUNAMIS of the enemy;

AUTHORITY: (exousia)  – The rule of government that commands submission highest judicial control possible that can exert rule and dominance.

POWER: (dunamis) – The ability to do something. Miracle working power. 

Exousia or authority is the right to do it. 

The authority that Jesus gave the disciples was to be able to overcome the power – NOT AUTHORITY – of the enemy. The enemy rules by power, not by authority. 

Luke 9:1-2 When Jesus had called the Twelve together, he gave them power and authority to drive out all demons and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.

Jesus had the level of authority that He exercised in the Gospels and was able to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit, doing many miracles because of:

 1. His relationship with the Father – They were one.

2 His level of submission to the Mission of the Father – constantly drew aside to spend time with the Father in the secret place (Hebrews 5:7,8)

Our authority will also come from our relationship with Jesus then through the commission of Jesus. 

Our relationship with God, what does it look like?
