The Impact of God’s Nature on Us

Posted onNovember 25, 2018 | by: Seth Carter | 0 comments

We live in a world where we are forced to make countless deci-sions. And there will be consequences for those decisions. And thus, our lives are full of regrets and celebrations. We need to know that God has not left us alone in this world. He has given us the Helper, the Holy Spirit, to be our guide as we navigate this world through the lens of Holy Scripture. God has given us a his-torical record of failures and victories in the Bible. We are not left helpless when it comes to making decisions. God is the main character in the Bible. Not Moses, David, or Mary. They are just a few of many supporting “actors” who help us learn more about the nature of God. We shouldn’t read the account of David, and conclude, “I must be more like David.” Instead, we should consider the nature of God towards David, and apply that in our own situations and way of thinking....Keep Reading

One year ago today, we moved into our newly completed education wing. What a day of excitement as we furnished and decorated our brand new Sunday School classrooms and gave thanks for God’s provision through the planning and construction! As we continue to fulfill our Journey of Faith pledges, we thank you for your sacrificial giving and your faithfulness....Keep Reading

Our Upward Sports League is an outreach ministry in which our primary goal is to share the gospel with families in our local community. The families that have registered with us this year are not only from Fuquay-Varina, but nine other cities as well. As of today, there are 320 young people registered to play in our Upward Basketball and Cheerleading League. Think about this. That’s well over the number of people we typically have on a Sunday morning service....Keep Reading

Why Pray?

Posted onOctober 7, 2018 | 0 comments

Jesus made it clear that He expects Christians to pray. Three times in three consecutive verses in Matthew 5, Jesus said, “When you pray…” Notice that He didn’t say “if you pray.” God included much about prayer in the Bible. We are told to pray without ceasing1, pray for one another2, pray for the sick3, pray night and day4, that prayer works5, that Jesus Himself prayed6, and much more....Keep Reading

“You of little faith”

Change, the unknown, sickness, regret, hardships, disasters, and the future all can bring about fear. What are the storms in your life today? When calamity seems to be rapidly approaching us, or even surrounding us, we quickly and eagerly drop to our knees in prayer. We helplessly seek God’s rescue, and rightly so. God expects His children to be confident in Him so much that we become the reliable ones amidst any crisis....Keep Reading

Some good things are just untimely. It’s like getting a phone call when you’re checking out at the store, or getting a text while you’re at the dinner table. Or have you ever been in a hurry, but someone keeps dragging out a conversation....Keep Reading

Lesson Learned

One day Leslie noticed I was stressing out from responsibilities at home and work, so she graciously gave me a free pass and said, "I have everything covered here. Why don't you go somewhere by yourself, take your Bible and just take a break?" She was so wise. I needed that. I went to Bass Lake, sat down on the dock and began reading 1 Timothy. ...Keep Reading

“The Passing of the SWORD”

This is a special day. Today I pass the baton, the torch of the pastoral care of the loving people of Wake Chapel Christian Church to Isaac Mooneyham. But I decided rather to pass a sword to him because the Word of God is the center of this church and his ministry. ...Keep Reading

The Apostle Paul was not reluctant to mention the names of those who posed a threat to the furtherance of the gospel and the health of the church and also the names of those whose lives had been a blessing to others....Keep Reading
