Sermon - Jim Andrews, Pastor

No Middle Ground

Matthew 12:22-30

Word From the Pastor

When it comes to Jesus, neutrality amounts to opposition, playing it safe amounts to playing Him false. No way to be a friend of Jesus unless one takes sides with Jesus.

Mission Ministry

Loving JesusIn this year’s Mission to Oaxaca, we are again going to have Milton Morocho on our team. This is the twenty-second team from Lake to embark on a mission to Oaxaca, Mexico. Under the banner of “Loving Jesus”, our Mission 2020 Team will mainly focus on the welfare of the people of Sublime Gracia Iglesia (Amazing Grace Church) which was completed seven years ago following ten years of mission building. Milton Morocho adds much to our team since he is our supported missionary who teaches the doctrines of the Bible to students at Rio Grande Bible Institute in Edinburgh, Texas. The value Milton adds to our team is that he is Hispanic and knows the people of Mexico and will be able to bring his calm and decisive interpretation of the Gospel of Jesus to our sister church in this great time of world-wide turmoil. Only our Lord could make this possible and under the banner of Loving Jesus makes this all the more amazing!
