Zzzzzzzzzzz...

Many people would say that's the sound of a church service on any typical Sunday morning. Deadly boring... soapy platitudes... hypocritical denunciations... prudish warnings against anything real and deeply pleasurable... ranks of drowsy worshipers putting in their mandatory time in "God's house" before being released once more to life outside the dim stained glass, behind which they comfortably deposit most of their religion until the next weekend.

If that's Christianity, who wants it?

On the contrary, Christianity is a face-to-face reunion with God. Visit our "Eyewitnesses" section to read how Jesus Christ is wonderfully alive and busy in the world today, bringing people to life. As people believe in him and open their hearts and lives to him, they find that he is undeniably real, powerful, and good. Our earnest hope is that you also will become an eyewitness of his majesty.

What About Halloween?

From Pastor Paul:

Our church does not forbid participation in Halloween, because the Bible does not. Therefore, going “trick-or-treating” is not necessarily wrong. Some on the session remain fascinated by jack-o-lanterns. Nor do we think all scary things must be automatically reviled. Nonetheless, the following biblical considerations keep us from an uncritical, full-blown participation in Halloween. We do not condemn Christians who disagree, as long as they share their candy with us. [continued]
