The Church represents the kingdom of Jesus Christ as He established it here on earth; restored in glory for mankind with the same gifts, ordinances, structure and faith. The Church serves humbly as a forum through which God’s spirit can be shared with the world. It is a spiritual home for people across the globe and a conduit for God’s blessings and miracles.
Our mission is to teach the Gospel to all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all things commanded by Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:19-20) and to draw Israel to Jesus Christ through an effort focused on the Native Americans of North and South
While we respect the freedom of choice as it applies to religious beliefs, we invite all who are seeking truth and sincerely interested in the simplicity of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, to explore our web site; who we are, and how, through Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice, all men and women might find eternal salvation.
May the Lord bless your heart and mind,
Good Word Friday theme: Sharing your faith
It's the first Friday of June — happy summer! — and we've got a new theme for our Good Word Friday scriptures. This month, the scriptures will be all about sharing our faith.
Today's verse from Romans tells us not to be ashamed of the gospel of Christ. Many of us think to ourselves (in our spiritually strong moments), "How could I possibly be ashamed of believing in Jesus?!" But we simultaneously feel fearful, hesitant, or uneasy about sharing this precious part of our lives with others. (What if they reject this belief that we hold so dear? What if they make us feel foolish, like we've been wrong about life all along?)
The fact is that there will always be people out there who will shame us for what we believe. Then, the ball is in our court. Will we respond to that shame by actually feeling ashamed? Or will we bounce back from the blow and continue steadfast in our faith?
Here's the next installment of "Melodies with Meaning," where our columnists tell you about some of their favorite spiritual songs. Today, we're hearing from Sister Charity.
The world wants every piece of you.
The news: “Look over here!”
Politics: “No, me! Look at me!”
Social media: “Hi, let’s hang out for 10 hours. I’m sure you’ve got nothing better to do.”
Ya know who else wants every piece of you?
But the difference between the world and Jesus is that Jesus won’t get all up in your face about it. He won’t beg. He won’t yell. He won’t wave his arms in the air like those other distractions do, as their success depends on our attention. Jesus already won. And our success depends on Him. He simply waits till we’re ready, for us to come to Him, gently reminding us along the way that He’s still there.
