On this second week of Advent, we lit the peace candle. When Jesus Christ the Prince of Peace came the first time, the way was prepared by John the Baptist. He instructed people to repent and be baptized to make their hearts ready for the Lord. He created a buzz throughout the land that prepared the climate to receive the Messiah. Today we are going to talk about preparing our hearts for the peace of God to have a firm hold.

Why Did Jesus Have to Die?
Good Friday • April 19, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
It's one of the great questions of all time. Why did Jesus have to die? Wasn't there another way? It is actually important that it all went down the way it did and understanding the reason has eternal and temporal implications for us.
The Discipline of Scripture Reading
March 31, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
The Bible is our life manual. No understanding of it, partial understanding of it or a misguided understanding of it can be detrimental to our quality of life. But if we intentionally set out to understand the scriptures, life can be set upon a path that is both beautiful and fulfilling. There is no other book that carries the weight, authority and impact of the Judeo-Christian scriptures. Without the Bible we are left to develop our own misguided personal philosophy of life that simply anesthetizes our slow death.
