  • The kingdom of God

    Today, for the Christian with recent persecution and the Supreme Court ruling on same sex ‘marriages,’ there is a sense of sadness, madness, or disgust. However, biblically many Christians fail to remember that the bible tells us we are all sinners and all fall short of God’s glory (Rom. 3:23).
    Sin is sin in God’s eyes, whether one steals a penny or a million dollars it is still defined as a sin and a failure of God’s Commandment.

    Nestled within 800 acres of rolling hills in Williamstown, a creation of biblical proportions is starting to take shape.

  • Past, you don’t rule me

    Why do bad things happen to good people? This would have to be one the most difficult questions presented to pastors, parents, and a majority of the public alike. The Bible speaks truth as it proclaims, “Hell hath enlarged her mouth” and “men shall become more wicked.”
