May 29th Worship Service – God’s Prescription

God’s prescription for His Church is to be a praying church. God’s has given us the privilege and power of prayer to touch heaven in order to change earth. In this message you will discover the importance of being a praying church and



May 22nd Worship Service – “God’s Prerogative”

Jesus called us to be His Church built upon Him as the solid rock. When the church is built on the right foundation it will prosper. God’s prerogative for His Church is to be united together in faith and love.  The Psalmist said how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.  The importance of unity in the chu



May 15th Worship Service – God’s Vision

The church is not a building, nor is it an organization. The Church is the “called out ones” -called out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of Light. In this message, you will discover what it means to be the Church reflecting the glory of God.

“Run With This”

Thought for Today: Run With This

You have been given a new life. This means you have been placed on a new course in life, a life where you are heading to a new destination. As you begin to run in this race called life there is one thing that you need to run with.  

First and foremost, you must run this race (live this life) with God and not for God. He is right there giving you instruction through the voice of the Holy Spirit telling you when to pick up the pace, telling you when to slow down, telling you when to stay in the current position you are holding.  

This is what He meant in Matthew 28:20, saying, “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” 

God has a pace in life just for you. Yes, there will be some that will be moving at a faster pace in their life with God than you are, but that does not make them any better than you.  

There will be some that are running at a slower pace in life, but that does not make you any better than them. For the word of God says that “the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; BUT TIME AND CHANCE HAPPENETH TO THEM ALL” (Ecclesiastes 9:11). 

You will lose your place in the will of God when you are looking at the race that someone else is running. Just because God gave them the gift to remember scripture does not place them in any better position with God than you. Just because they can pray with eloquent words does not put them in any better position with God than you. 

Stop looking at what someone else is doing in and for the kingdom of God and begin to look to God and find out where He has positioned you in this race called life.  

The reason the church is not flourishing like it did in the bible days is because many of God’s children are attempting to be placed in a position in the church, instead of focusing on their position with the Father. God knows where He wants you, God knows the gifts that He has given you, God knows when those gifts will be used.  

You have been placed in a new race (you have been given a new life) and this race (your life) is not a sprint, you are going to have to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit of God when He tells you to slow down, keep your position (stay right where you are), or move ahead (leave that position or place you are currently in). 

The enemy will attempt to give you his opinion and/or instructions, and the Holy Spirit of God says to you that you only have need of one thing while running this new race (living this new life). The one thing that you need to run this race (live this new life) is PATIENCE.  

For it is written, “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily bester us (put down everything that prevent us from moving in God’s way of doing things in and for our lives) and let us RUN WITH PATIENCE the race that is set before us (live our lives according to the instructions God gives each one of us)” (Hebrews 12:1). 

Don’t let the world, the flesh, or the devil push you into a place or position in life that was not meant for you. Wait on the Lord, be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart. 

BE Blessed

“You Have Your Reward”

Thought for Today: You Have Your Reward

There are many reasons why we as human beings do what we do. But there should be one reason and one reason only why you do your best to live your life according to the word of God. It may have started out early in your life simply because that’s what momma and daddy taught you, but there will have to come a time in your life where that can’t be the only reason. It may be because that’s what the church taught you, and that’s fine to start with, but there comes a time in your life where that cannot be the main reason. But one of the worst reasons that anyone says they are believers in the Lord Jesus Christ is simply to please the church. 

I will just say it, if you just go to church so that people can notice that you are in the church, you are going to church for the wrong reasons and you have already received your reward. If you worship the Lord simply because you want to be seen as a worshiper, you have your reward. If you pray in public just to be heard and to be known as a prayer warrior, you have your reward. If you read the word in public just to be seen by humanity, then you have your reward. If you only help people to be seen as a helper in the eyes of the public, then you have your reward. I don’t know who I am talking to, but if you are trying to live a good life simply to receive a pat on the back, or recognition by those around you, then the spirit of the Lord says to you today “YOU HAVE YOUR REWARD.”  

As a child of God, whatever you do, do it to show Him just how much you love Him. If you truly love God, honor your mother and your father not just in public, honor them in private and help them when no one is looking. The Father will reward you in public for honoring them in private. Jesus said, “Verily I say unto you (yes, he is talking to you) INASMUCH AS YE HAVE DONE IT UNTO ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE MY BRETHREN YE HAVE DONE IT UNTO ME” (Matthew 25:40).

Read the word of God, pray, and worship in private when nobody else is around and the Lord will reward you in public. Take care of your home, treat others with respect, and honor all human beings especially when no one is looking, and the Lord will reward you in public.  

Whatever you do in life, don’t do it so that man can pat you on the back and tell you how nice of a job you did. Don’t love your neighbors like you love yourself simply so that man can tell you how kind and thoughtful you are, because that pat on the back will be your reward.  

If you are going to do anything in life, do it simply because you love the Lord thy God. Never do anything because you feel you have to; you must live this life to please God simply because you want to show God just how much you love and appreciate Him.  Jesus said “IF YOU LOVE ME KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS” (John 14:15). Whatever you do, be it in private or in public, know that the Father knows your motives. 

For it is written, “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, TO BE SEEN OF THEM; otherwise YE HAVE NO REWARD OF YOUR FATHER which is in heaven. Therefore, when thou doest thine alms do not sound a trumpet before thee (DON’T DO WHAT YOU DO SO EVERYBODY CAN SEE) as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, THAT THEY MAY HAVE GLORY OF ME. Verily I say unto you THEY HAVE THEIR REWARD” (Matthew 6:1-2). 

God looks at your heart, and He knows the difference between those who are living to get glory from man, and those who are living a life to show Him just how much they love Him. Live your life, especially when nobody is looking, to please God and He will reward you in public.

Be Blessed.

“Looking for Jesus”

Thought for Today: Looking for Jesus

I know you may have heard for most of your life that Jesus is coming back for those who are looking for Him. I am not even going to try and say when Jesus is coming, Jesus himself said “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24:36). 

We have never seen days like the ones we are living in now. I would say if anyone were shocked about what is going on in the world today, they have not spent enough time in the word of God.  

What is happening in our world today does not surprise God, and if you are a child of the living God, it should not shock you. The word of God says “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady (demanding) high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God” (2 Timothy 3:1-4). 

Are YOU LOOKING FOR JESUS? Just because a person goes to church does not mean they are looking for Jesus to come back. Just because a person listens to worship music or reads the word of God does not mean they are looking for Jesus to come back. “How do I know if I am looking for Jesus’ to come back, Pastor Erick?” To look for Jesus to come back is to simply love Jesus so much that you anticipate the promise He gave you. “What promise is that, Pastor Erick?” That promise is found in John 14:3, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am there you may be also.”  

Jesus knows who is looking for Him and He knows who truly loves Him. How does He know who loves Him? Jesus gave us the answer to how He will know if a person truly loves Him, or if they are just giving lip service, in John 14:15 which plainly says, “IF YE LOVE ME KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.”  

You are showing Jesus that you love Him when you love your neighbor as yourself. You are showing Jesus that you love Him when you forgive the unforgivable, love the unlovable, touch the untouchable, and by showing grace and mercy to those who do not deserve it.  

You are showing Jesus that you love Him, and that you are looking for His return, when you pick up your cross daily (do not allow your feelings and/or emotions stop you from doing what God says). By living your life according to the word of God, it shows Jesus that you love Him and are anticipating His promise to come and share eternal life with you.  

For it is written, “So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many, and unto THEM THAT LOOK FOR HIM SHALL HE APPEAR THE SECOND TIME WITHOUT SIN UNTO SALVATION” (Hebrews 9:28). 

It’s not enough to say that you are looking for Jesus, you must show Him that you are looking for Him by living a life that is pleasing to the Father. Don’t live your life by the world, live your life by the WORD and know Jesus is not like man, HE keeps His promises. 

Be Blessed
