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.

Prepare for November 16 Worship

Dear Worshipers of God Through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit:

On the Lord’s Day you will put into action the true (and too-long) salutation above. Contrary to how we often feel, our worship together on the Lord’s Day offers us the most elevated experience of communion with the Trinity and the brethren possible in this life. It is the fullest preview we have in this age to see the glory of God in Christ as he will be finally glorified in the immediate presence of all his redeemed. It is his day, when Jesus walks among his lampstand-churches and the Spirit speaks to those with ears. It is when the children of God turn their faces unitedly to him to shine increasingly in his likeness, as micro-mirrors of his majesty to one another and all creation. Do you often feel this? Do you embrace it by faith? Do… you… pray… and… prepare… so the Lord may let it be done to you according to your faith… and you may feel the things that are true?

Your servant for the sake of Christ,
Pastor Paul
