There is nothing small about our God; His crumbs are as great as His full loaves; His whispers are as mighty as His shouts, and His tender touch is as moving as an earthquake. Often, we fail to see His glory because we are looking too high. Look for Him in the everyday, small things. Read the rest of this entry »
Using Christ's messages to the seven churches (book of Revelation) and Paul's metaphor of running a race, this three-part series explains why a dying church is not one that is losing members, but rather, one that is losing zeal and focus on our God-given mission. Lesson three features a very inspiring song (written by a young girl) called "Voice of the Martyrs." Read the rest of this entry »

This lesson examines the duties of the priests of Israel. It seems they spent a great deal of time sprinkling things with blood, water, salt and oil. Even Jesus, as our High Priest, sprinkles us with the blood of the cross, the water of the Word, and the oil of His Spirit. May our ministries reflect His as we “sprinkle” God’s people. Read the rest of this entry »

Historically, humans have often confused religious zeal with oppression and forced conversions. In this lesson we learn about the “Love Slaves.” Men and women whose “cords of love” are stronger than ropes or chains could ever be. They are willing to die for love of their Master. Read the rest of this entry »

What does an artist care about more than anything—His work! His work is a reflection of his heart and skills. The universe shows us the amazing workmanship of God, but we are His masterpiece. He will never quit perfecting what he has begun, even if, like the potter, He needs to rework us few times. Read the rest of this entry »
Jesus knew that men were speculating about His identity. He asked His disciples, “Who do men say that I am?” Is He a prophet—a king—the Christ!!? They were not ready to hear the truth, but He was ready to tell it—I AM! Read the rest of this entry »
If the groundhog stays in his hole, winter will continue for six more weeks--so tradition says. But, if he comes out--spring has come. Thank God Jesus came out of his tomb and ended the winter of sin. Read the rest of this entry »

This is part #2 of the lesson on the structure of the Tabernacle. The 48 boards are held by five bars joining them together as one. Likewise, the Body of Christ has many parts, yet is one body. Read the rest of this entry »
As our skin covers our bones, the coverings of the Tabernacle clothe the boards that give it structure. This is part #1 of this teaching about the Body of Christ -- a house, built on an unshakable solid foundation! Read the rest of this entry »

Representing the blood of Jesus, the ram’s skin dyed red was the one covering given without a measurement. Truly, there is ‘no measure’ to His abundant grace and forgiveness. In this lesson we learn the meaning of ‘redemption’ and tell the wonderful story about the little boy who lost his toy boat and bought it back again saying, “Now your twice mine, for I have made you and I have bought you.” Read the rest of this entry »
The story of an elite Jewish citizen and a lowly one are here compared side by side. Though very different in social standing, these seekers of Christ’s favor were equals (in God’s eyes) in desperation and determined faith. Read the rest of this entry »

This lesson explains the Lord's parable about the man who found a treasure in the field. Oh, how great is the worth of a human soul to God? How cheerfully He sacrifices all that He has to buy the field (the World) which harbors His hidden treasure (the Church). Read the rest of this entry »

“People can make all kinds of plans, but only the Lord’s plan will happen.” Proverbs 19:21 In this sermon, the life of Joseph is used as an example of God’s wisdom exceeding our own. Can we trust that God knows what He is doing? Read the rest of this entry »
Remember the age old question, “What is this thing called love?” How can we tell who really loves us? How can we know that we truly love others? Do we really love Christ? Jesus tells us how to know when genuine love is present. Read the rest of this entry »
This is a great tool for teaching and memorizing the Lord's Prayer. Read the rest of this entry »
Joseph didn’t seem like much when his brothers tried to kill him and then sold him into slavery. Little did they know they would one day be begging him to save their whole family. If we reject Jesus, He will let us, but we are rejecting the only one who can save us from our sins. Read the rest of this entry »
This lesson on the Ten Commandments, while explaining what each commandment means, teaches that we are unable to obey them by any means of our own. We need Jesus Christ living inside us and changing us into His glorious image. Read the rest of this entry »
It is amazing how many parallels to Christ’s life can be found in the story of Joseph. From the plot on his life to his exaltation and His forgiving of his brethren, Joseph is a picture of Jesus. This lesson looks our forgiving Savior through the life of Joseph. Read the rest of this entry »
“But God was with Joseph.” “But God!” These are the greatest two words in the bible. What Satan means for evil might be a threat to believers, BUT GOD… This sermon compares the rise of Joseph out of prison with the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb – very powerful. Read the rest of this entry »
Did you know that when the Israelites made camp, their tents were set up in the form of a cross? Did you know that the tabernacle furniture was laid out in the shape of a cross? Then there is the pure white linen fence—what does it tell us about Christ’s future bride? Read the rest of this entry »
“Does not the World hate you? Remember that it first hated me.” John 15:18 Joseph’s life is full of types and shadows of Christ. This first lesson on Joseph’s life demonstrates the persecution that will befall any believer who dares to live Godly. Surely Jesus was hated for His goodness, and, like Joseph, He rose in power. One day, those who persecuted Him will bow before Him. Read the rest of this entry »
When our Master returns, will He find us being faithful with the gifts and resources He provided? Are we investing in the Kingdom of God or just trying to get by and stay out of trouble? Read the rest of this entry »

The graduates of this school have learned to be small children. Read the rest of this entry »
These brothers, born the same day, grew to desire different things from life. One brother had a heart for the things of God, while the other was content to fill his belly. What would you trade for Jesus? You name it—Jesus is better. He’s even better than football! Read the rest of this entry »
All people owe a debt to God for their sins. Although each of us owes a great deal, we tend to believe that some of us are less indebted than others—we believe in degrees of sinfulness. This story shows us that there are no degrees of sinfulness, but there are degrees of awareness of sin. Read the rest of this entry »
This lesson compares the basic duties of His people in three dispensations: Adam in the Garden, the Priests in the Tabernacle and the Believer in the Kingdom of God. Each are told to “ABAD” God (meaning both serve and worship depending on the translation). To God, worship is service and service is worship. Read the rest of this entry »
Through understanding the depth of love that Abraham had for his son Isaac, we can begin to understand what it took for the Heavenly Father to sacrifice His Son. This presentation contains the amazing and heart wrenching film, “The Bridge.” Read the rest of this entry »
Each and every one of us has suffered from broken promises sometime in our lives. We have also been guilty of breaking our own promises. Therefore, we have come to distrust promises – we consider them more as a ‘maybe’ than a ‘verily.’ But, there is a big difference between a promise made by men and a promise made by God! Read the rest of this entry »
This presentation uses ‘Memorial Day’ as a stepping stone to examine the ministry of Jesus as our High Priest standing before The Father, representing us with pierced side and nail-scarred hands. It also challenges believers to ‘remind’ God in prayer for our loved ones. Read the rest of this entry »
In this lesson we learn about how much our God loves to move forward—He is a walker, not a monument builder. Tents are fabric and believers are flesh. We are not granite stone, we are not statues. God wants to walk with us, not stake us down. Walking and talking is how we deepen relationships. Read the rest of this entry »
Jesus taught His disciples that the scriptures, from the book of Genesis forward, are actually about Him. He said, “Search the scriptures, for they testify of me.” This lesson teaches some basic principles for discovering the types and shadows of Jesus in the Old Testament. Read the rest of this entry »
Some people think that faith in Christ can be simply added as a mere life enhancement, but this is untrue. It is impossible to love God and the world at the same time. Christ must be chosen and the world must be renounced. This extends to our leisure activities and our friendships. We cannot be friends with both the world and God. Read the rest of this entry »
Did you know that all God cares about is being with His people? The entire bible is the story of God trying to reconcile with fallen man so that He might be in fellowship with us. The Tabernacle of Moses was both a place of temporary fellowship and a reflection of full reconciliation yet to come through Jesus Christ. Read the rest of this entry »
The true cost of embarking on a walk of faith and following Jesus is examined in this lesson. What did it cost Abram and the disciples? What will it cost us? Faith is about what we cling to. We cannot cling to God, unless we let go of everything else. Read the rest of this entry »
Like Father Abraham, believers start ventures they could never complete, fight enemies too powerful to defeat, and rely on blessings they cannot see. Men might call this “bonkers,” but God just calls it faith! Read the rest of this entry »
Using bright and amusing graphics, this presentation compares the world’s values with Christ’s. Read the rest of this entry »
These 'family-style,' evangelistic sermons are being preached at Bee Creek Park (in College Station, TX) every Saturday & Sunday at 2pm. Read the rest of this entry »
What a difference a single encounter with Jesus can have in the heart of a man. In this presentation, Zacchaeus meets Jesus and becomes so transformed he is a different man! Read the rest of this entry »
Compared to The World, Jesus’ Kingdom is an upside-down house. Up is down, first is last, and master is servant. In this lesson, we compare the Kingdom of God to a famous tourist attraction called "The Upside-down House." Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed." Rom.12:2 Read the rest of this entry »
There are two ways to respond to our sinful nature before God. We may choose to do good works and expect God to accept us gratefully, or we may choose to confess our sins and depend on nothing but His mercy and the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus. This lesson compares Cain and Abel with the New Testament story of the self righteous Publican and the humble sinner. Self righteousness in the heart will always lead to contempt for others. Guard your heart! Read the rest of this entry »
This sermon explores several misconceptions about God and explains what it means to have a relationship with Him. We look at “relationship” as a position (in Christ); legal status (sons); and heart-felt feeling (friend). Read the rest of this entry »
From His beloved inner circle, to those who followed Him solely for His miracles, to those who hated Him, Jesus had various levels of relationship with men. This sermon challenges the believer to draw closer to Jesus. Read the rest of this entry »
Believers are created to hear God’s voice. This lesson compares the special attributes of flying bats with the believer’s ability to hear God. Read the rest of this entry »
The concept of a sacrificial lamb is universal and timeless. It is especially prominent in Abrahamic religions such as Christianity, Judaism and Islam. This lamb is at the heart of the Gospel.

These lessons explore the sheep nature of mankind, the Shepherd heart of Jesus, bad shepherds and the Door of the sheep. Read the rest of this entry »

Who We Are & What We Believe: Harold & I have been in ministry together since Moses was a baby in a basket (well okay, 1970). We have worked together with pastors from A/G, Global Youth Evangelism, Foursquare Gospel, Open Bible, COGIC, PCOG, & other full-gospel groups (we are not currently affiliated with any of these good organizations). In our youth, we attended GYE University in Orland, CA: a non-denominational, free bible school led by retired A/G bible college professors. Currently, we provide evangelism opportunities for saints living in the East Texas. Because we were given biblical training by faithful servants, we count it a privilege to pass this training to a new generation. Please let us know if we can serve you or your church in any way.

Statement of Faith

WE BELIEVE…The Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind.

WE BELIEVE…There is only one true God –revealed in three persons…Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).

WE BELIEVE…In the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s son Jesus was both human and divine.

WE BELIEVE…Though created innocent, man willingly fell into sin –ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

WE BELIEVE…Every person can have restored fellowship with God through His provided means of  salvation. This gift is given to those who trust Christ, through faith and repentance, to be their personal Savior.

WE BELIEVE IN…Two ordinances—(1) Water Baptism by immersion after repenting of one’s sins and receiving Christ’s gift of salvation, and (2) Holy Communion (the Lord’s Supper) as a symbolic remembrance of Christ’s suffering and death for our salvation.

WE BELIEVE…The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service, just as it did in New Testament times.

WE BELIEVE…The initial physical evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is ‘speaking in tongues,’ as experienced on the Day of Pentecost and referenced throughout Acts and the Epistles.

WE BELIEVE…Sanctification initially occurs at salvation and is not only a declaration that a believer is holy, but also a progressive lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christ-like.

WE BELIEVE…The Church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin.

We BELIEVE… The Church is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of His son Jesus Christ.

WE BELIEVE…That as a body, working together under divinely called leadership, we  must commit ourselves to reach others for Christ, worship Him with other believers, edify the Church and meet human need with ministries of love and compassion.

WE BELIEVE…Divine healing of the sick is a privilege for Christians today and is provided for in Christ’s atonement (His sacrificial death on the cross for our sins).

WE BELIEVE…In The Blessed Hope—When Jesus Raptures His Church Prior to His Return to Earth (the second coming). At this future moment in time all believers who have died will rise from their graves and will meet the Lord in the air, and Christians who are alive will be caught up with them, to be with the Lord forever.

WE BELIEVE…In The Millennial Reign of Christ when Jesus returns with His saints at His second coming and begins His benevolent rule over earth for 1,000 years. This millennial reign will bring the salvation of national Israel and the establishment of universal peace.

WE BELIEVE…A Final Judgment will take place for those who have rejected Christ. They will be judged for their sin and consigned to eternal punishment in a punishing lake of fire.

WE BELIEVE…And look forward to the perfect New Heavens and a New Earth that Christ is preparing for all people, of all time, who have accepted Him. We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His millennial reign on Earth. ‘And so shall we forever be with the Lord!’

John Wesley said:

 It is no marvel that the devil does not love field preaching! Neither do I; I love a commodious room, a soft cushion, a handsome pulpit. But where is my zeal if I do not trample all these underfoot in order to save one more soul?”

Give me one hundred preachers who fear nothing but sin and desire nothing but God, and I care not whether they be clergymen or laymen, they alone will shake the gates of Hell and set up the kingdom of Heaven upon Earth.”

ABOUT FIELD PREACHING:

Every believer is called to preach the gospel — it is our “Great Commission,” the final decree of our Savior. Obedience to the Great Commission and our personal transformation into the image of Christ are the reasons we continue on Earth. Let us pursue both wholeheartedly.

Did Jesus really mean it?

In our hearts, we know He did, and that’s the proverbial “elephant in the room.”  Perhaps we can alter it, dress it up, make it look as if Jesus actually said, Go… worship, love one another, do service, do miracles, study the Word, adorn the sanctuary, support missionaries, etc.

Perhaps we can simply toss one of these other, perfectly scriptural mandates over the big elephant and then tell ourselves that we are, by some stretch of the imagination, sort of obeying the “Great Commission.”

Still, we never quite feel the release and fulfillment that comes from full obedience. Instead, we feel selfish and rich with blessings amidst a dying generation.

Jesus — Our Example

Jesus went to Simon Peter’s house and healed his mother-in-law of a fever. She rose from her sick-bed and began serving Him. Soon, the whole city gathered at their door and He healed many.

Wow! People were coming, miracles were happening, the home was welcoming, and the lady of the house was serving food. Many a minister would extend the dates of such a plush engagement.

Yet, Jesus wasn’t comfortable — in fact, He was restless:

“Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed.

Simon and his companions went to look for him, and when they found him, they exclaimed: ‘Everyone is looking for you.”

Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else — to the nearby villages — so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.”  Mark 1:35-38

The Master’s Plan

There are many things we can train believers to do that will impact unbelievers, but we must never forget that the “big gun” in our Gospel arsenal is PREACHING itself.

Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe. I Cor. 1:21 NLT

Yet preaching the Good News is not something I can boast about. I am compelled by God to do it. How terrible for me if I didn’t preach the Good News!” 1 Cor. 9:16 NLT

OUR preaching is HIS main way of speaking to the lost:

So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17

And how are they to hear without a preacher?” Rom. 10:14 WNT

So Send I You

And how are men to preach unless they have been SENT.” Rom.10:15 WNT

A few believers are born with the ability to evangelize alone. The rest of us need the rest of us. We need training, organization, leadership and support.

This is what Jesus provided for His disciples.

And He appointed twelve, so that they would be with Him and that He could send them out to preach.” Mark 3:14 NAS

At the same time, He doesn’t force believers to go out alone without the support of other believers:

And how are men to preach unless they have been SENT.” Rom.10:15 WNT

Let’s revive the idea of Gospel Meetings (i.e., meetings that take place anywhere but in the church itself). The venues can be downtown shops, two-car garages, back-yard pools, etc. They can be geared to any age group — kids, teens or adults.

 

Do the math!! Putting together two timid but willing believers from each of five local churches would form a team of ten gospel workers. What more do we need to hold a campaign for the purpose of preaching to the lost?

 

Elijah was disheartened because he believed he was alone in his zeal, but to his surprise, God revealed there were actually 7,000 people with his level of commitment – but they were scattered. Christian leaders must identify and gather the willing workers scattered in their church, city, county, state, etc.

 

Military, business and sports leaders alike, know that winning teams must complete five vital stages before they can declare “mission accomplished!”

 

1] Gather a Team

2] Train the Team

3] Plan the Mission

4] Motivate The Team

5] Execute the Plan

 

Einstein said :

Vision without execution is hallucination.”

To “SEND” — Inspire, train, organize, and lead willing Christians into public gospel preaching for the purpose of winning the lost.

Jesus started with two, which then grew to a mere twelve. Let us emulate Him — gather a few willing followers, train them and take them out to preach, and see what happens.

 

Let’s join together in our efforts to preach to the souls living in our area. Indeed, there are a handful in your church who want to, but they feel inadequate for the task.

 

I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” John 9:4 KJV

 

Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” I Cor. 9:16
