When Belief Triggers Action

Social Media Director


You truly believe. You have taken steps internally that make you uncomfortable.

Faith stones

I don’t know about you but I am not fond of experiencing pain. Be that physical or emotional.

When I look at my willingness to believe something is going to happen it is directly tied to my perception of possible pain.

I want to believe so hard that I take out the what ifs when it comes to God.

Test yourself. Believe today.

You never know the sorts of deep theological revelations you may miss when you are not in attendance; such as the above revelatory remark made by Pastor O’Neal on November 10th.

Although the comment was funny, and quite unexpected, how many of us have not had our mothers admonish us on a regular basis during our childhood

Beck, take this first year of marriage and really focus on your marriage.” Those were words of biblical counsel given to me by my late mentor, Billy Hornsby, as I approached my upcoming marriage with Jodi nearly 13 years ago. Unfortunately, those were words I did not heed as I should have during that first newlywed year. Yes, I wanted to have a godly marriage, but my focus may have been more zeroed in on other responsibilities and dreams such as entering “full-time ministry.” I, excuse me, WE paid a dear price our first year of marriage simply because I didn’t take the time to make marriage my main earthly, relational priority.
