Pastor Paul's Perspective

Jonah & Jesus

Special Guest Blog from Pastor Jordan

Many of those growing up in the church today know the truth, but behave as if living in the presence of God and in obedience to His Word was just one of many options. In God's sovereignty and compassion, He sent His one and only Son with the aim of making us like Christ. In the book of Jonah, which we'll be digging into again this weekend, we find some comparisons to Jesus that we might not have noticed before.

"That Church"

Wrapping up Ephesians

This Sunday, July 8, we will be wrapping up our study through the book of Ephesians. A series that began in the fall of 2017. It was honestly my intention to be brief. (Really!!!) I had outlined the book of Ephesians after reading it through 10 times or so and decided to preach the high points. The big stuff. The main ideas.

So I Have A Competitive Streak . . .

Competing to Win Spiritually

Growing up as the youngest in a family of six, I was forced to compete. Compete for attention, compete for clean underwear, compete for food and, at times, compete for the bathroom. 

Wrestling To Win

Warfare God's Way

The struggle is real . . . yes, it is!!!

This Sunday, June 24, we will be back in Ephesians 6:10-20 looking at the wrestling match we are in with the devil.

"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness
of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness
in the heavenly places."
Ephesians 6:12

And as we "wrestle", we will soon find out that truly, the struggle is real.

Fathers of Influence

Celebrating Dad's Role

Let me begin with Happy Father's Day!

I know I'm a few days early but this Sunday we celebrate fathers (because Hallmark says so . . .  ).

But seriously, this Sunday, June 17, we will be turning our focus to dads. Specifically, we will be looking at the dad's role of Influencer of the family.

First Things First

Loving the Gift-Giver More Than the Gift

Are you, at times, too reliant on yourself, too focused on other people’s opinions of you, or too dependent on worldly pleasures? I am realizing as time passes that I am also seeking satisfaction in many of the blessings God has given me, and not in God Himself. 

Wrestling Well

Recognizing & Engaging in Spiritual Warfare

Can I ask you right now, wherever you are, to stop and pray? Pray that God will give you special Holy Spirit insight into this week's topic of "wrestling with the devil", also known as spiritual warfare.

Thank God It's Friday?

What The Bible Has To Say About Our Work

The workplace can be a place you love to be . . . or maybe dread to be.


Over the years I've worked at a variety of places doing a variety of jobs.
