The Bible

The Bible truly is the most important book ever written, because it shows how we can have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. It also shows us how He wants us to live our lives while here on this earth. This article will explain why we see the Bible as so important.


This article describes our philosophy of welcoming children in the worship service, rather than having a Jr. Church. It provides a biblical basis for the practice, and seeks to answer some questions that might arise.

Worried about trying to keep your spirited children in the worship service with a bunch of adults? This article provides some helpful, practicle advice for teaching your kids how to sit through and engage in the corporate worship service.

This article on child-rearing was written by John Angell James, a 19th Century English pastor. It has some very helpful insights into problems which stear children away from the faith. Though it was written almost 200 years ago, its principles still remain thought provoking and powerful. A good read for parents who want to fulfill their God-given responsibility to raise their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
