Message from Joe Frost Director of Technology & Operations

1Peter-5:8-9 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experience by your brotherhood throughout the world.


Some of us know by personal experience that evil can be a powerful, strength draining, deceitful, temptingly attractive adversary that wants nothing more than to fill our minds with lies, drag us down, and consume our lives by any method possible; sex, drugs, depression, suicide, success, power... whatever it takes to keep us from having or growing up in a relationship with our God of Love.

Don't be deceived, but be ever on your guard. When, not if, but when evil approaches we must decide in an instant to confront it or avoid it altogether so as to maintain - by His Grace - our daily Christian lives.

We must know where we stand so we don't fall for just anything. We must know we're not alone and can obtain help and encouragement from others in the Body of Christ that are experiencing the same kinds of issues.

We must know what we claim to believe, being firm in our faith so we can resist our adversary the devil.

And we can know... Know that Jesus has already won the battle. And we can do all things through Him who strengthens us.

In His Strength...through Him there is victory!
