Randy Alcorn has written a best-selling book simply titled, Heaven. In it, he says, “Our belief that heaven will be boring is really saying God is boring. There is no greater nonsense. Our desire for pleasure and the experience of joy come directly from God’s hand. He made our taste buds, adrenaline, and the nerve endings that convey pleasure to our brains. Likewise our imaginations and our capacity for joy and exhilaration were made by the very God we accuse of being boring. Are we so arrogant that we imagine that human beings came up with the idea of having fun?" Join us this Sunday as we look at why I know heaven won't be boring!
Will Heaven be boring

Rewards in Heaven
Message Only • February 28, 2021 • Dr. Danny Lovett
This Sunday we will be looking at the Believer's Rewards. The Bible says that after all believers, dead and and alive, are removed from the earth at the rapture of the Church, believers will be judged individually for their works as the Lord's servants. Special rewards will be handed out that will make the Olympics look like child's play. This judgment has nothing to do with our salvation. Rather it has to do with the kind of Christian we have been, a judgment of our faithfulness as followers of Christ. This Sunday we will look at these rewards, how to earn them, and what we do with them!

The biblical perspective on death is different from the world’s point of view. Death is to be embraced, not feared. We have hope in the midst of our sorrow. Death is the pathway to the wonderful resurrection body God has planned for the believer. If we did not die, we would be stuck with our aging body for all eternity. Paul strikes a positive note right up front, saying that death is not to be feared. It’s what has to occur before we can be changed. Without death there is no resurrection. This Sunday we will look at what the Bible says our Resurrection Body will be like. Join us this Sunday for our Extreme Makeover.
What happens when we die
Message Only • February 7, 2021 • Dr. Danny Lovett
Everyone wants to know what happens to people when they die. Where are they and how are they? But that’s not just a modern day concern. Paul wrote to the Thessalonians Christians so they would not be ignorant about those who had "fallen asleep” 1Thessalonians 4:13. Falling asleep was, of course, a metaphor for death. Jesus used the word to describe Lazarus' death. Dr. Luke described Stephen’s death as falling asleep (Acts 7:60), and Paul described the death of David in the Old Testament the same way (Acts 13:36). The Bible has the answer, and it is illustrated clearly in a story told by Jesus about two individuals who went to two different places when they died. This Sunday we will look at the testimonies of the Rich Man and Lazarus which are found in Luke 16:19-31.
