"We see, in many a land, the proudest dynasties and tyrannies still crushing, with their mountain weight, every free motion of the Consciences and hearts of men. We see, on the other hand, the truest heroism for the right and the greatest devotion to the Truth in hearts that God has touched. We have a work to do, as great as our forefathers and, perhaps, far greater. The enemies of Truth are more numerous and subtle than ever and the needs of the Church are greater than at any preceding time. If we are not debtors to the present, then men were never debtors to their age and their time. Brethren, we are debtors to the hour in which we live. Oh, that we might stamp it with Truth and that God might help us to impress upon its wings some proof that it has not flown by neglected and unheeded." -- C.H. Spurgeon . . . "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." John 8:31, 32 . . . . .

New Series: The Insignificant Twelve - Mark 3:13-15

The Insignificant Twelve: "God Uses Nobodies" - Part 1 by Sonny Islas


The 12 apostles, also referred to as the 12 disciples or simply “the Twelve,” were Jesus Christ’s 12 closest followers.   They were just average men who responded to Jesus call to follow Him. They became His disciples, chosen for a specific purpose. They were not chosen from among the religious elite or the rich and powerful, they were fisherman, a tax collector, a zealot just average people doing average things until Jesus came into their lives. When we read the scriptures, we can certainly identify with them. What a truly inspiring lesson for us, that God can use the foolish to confound the wise.  His ability to transform lives to further His plans and purposes is amazing.  The fact that He could use these twelve insignificant men in such a mighty way is a powerful message for all of us.  If God could use them, He can use us.  The Insignificant Twelve would continue Jesus' ministry, preach the gospel and through them the world was changed forever.

Marks Of A True Christian - Pastor Sonny Islas

There is nothing more terrifying than to be found and exposed as a false Christian at the final judgement. I’d would rather be dipped in blood and be fed to great white sharks than to have to stand before God as one who is convinced that I’m getting into heaven only to find out that I’m not. This message will help with the dangers of self-deception. In Matthew 7, Jesus warned that MANY who claim to be Christ followers will end up in hell. Will you be one of those self-deceived nominal Christians? God forbid.

The Armor of God - is a seven part teaching series on Ephesians 6:11-18.

The Full Armor of God -

In the sixth chapter of Ephesians, the scriptures tell us that there is a spiritual battle going on.  "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places" (Ephesians 6:12).  The Devil is hard working when it comes to attacking the believer.  The spiritual battle is being fought wherever a true believer is giving out the Word of God, where a church is standing for the truth of God's Word.  We are no match for the devil, so what are we to do?  Be strong in the Lord...put on the Lord Jesus Christ...He will fight for us!
