There is so much that is happening in such a quick amount of time that it is difficult for me to encapsualize. It is good to start with " Praise the Lord, for His Mercy endures forever!" I have been preaching through Matthew--"you are the salt and light of the earth." Matthew 7: 7 deals with asking, seeking, and knocking. Our abiding, striving, and resting is a continual process. I am constantly evaluating the condition of my soul, the people of God, and the direction God desires the Church of God to go each step of the way. I realize that a true permanent change of heart and life actions come [...]

Jesus said He would build His church and the gates of hell would not prevail against it. Desert Hills Baptist Church and Baptist Church Planters’ missionary, Pastor Adam Zamora, have been stretched to the breaking point. Over the past year the questions have been asked, “What else could happen? What else could the local building authorities ask for?” When a question was asked, it seemed as if someone was listening and decided to come up with another request or requirement! The full story would take volumes to document the details. Even the total dollar costs, though extremely high, don’t tell the whole story. The delays and additional time requirements can [...]

Connecting Two Worlds with One Gospel The bilingual ministry of Faith Baptist Church / Iglesia Bautista la Fe both “celebrated” a special anniversary and “graduated” from missionary status to be a self-supporting local church on Sunday, March 6, 2016. The English aspect of the ministry technically began 75 years ago in Glendale, AZ; however, in 2010, Iglesia Bautista la Fe merged with Faith Baptist Church, thus “connecting two worlds with one gospel.” This bilingual, bicultural ministry provides services and classes in both English and Spanish on Sunday mornings. The Sunday evening services and Wednesday night prayer meetings are purposely translated from Spanish into English, songs are sung simultaneously in both [...]
Pinecrest Baptist Church started as a rescue work in 2004 with 11 people formerly known as Berean Baptist Church in Auburn, Massachusetts. We were called as Missionary Church Planters through Baptist Church Planters to keep this work from closing. Out of this group of 11 people - 6 moved away, 3 were unsaved, and only 2 had a clear salvation testimony. Our family of 7 immediately helped the attendance and we were excited to see what the Lord had in store. This group met in an old home with the auditorium on the upper floor and parking a long walk up sets of stairs as well. The building was not [...]
Jesus was called on to come to Bethany. Lazarus, His good friend and the brother of Mary and Martha, was sick. The faith of these two sisters was strong; they knew that if Jesus would come immediately, He could heal their brother. We know the history of this family. They were dear friends of Jesus. He was always welcome in their home. It was at their home that Martha learned what Jesus treasured most in a friendship: a listening heart and a desire to know the Father in a personal relationship. It was one of those growing times for Martha that we all experience during our walk with our Lord. [...]
