Your Words Shape Your Life | Pastor William Bedsole You are what you say.  Many times we hear the statement, “You are what you eat.”  But there is a spiritual parallel to that statement as well.  “You are what you say.”  What are we talking about?  We’re discussing the importance of words.  Not just what someone…

Cursed or Blessed? | Pastor William Bedsole Many think that when they become a Christian that the only thing they have ahead of them is a tough time. Even preachers try to falsely tell you, “Now that you’ve accepted Jesus in your life, get ready for suffering.” Sure, we don’t float through life on flowery…

Offenses will Come | Pastor William Bedsole Jesus said in Matthew 18:7, that offenses will come.  It is guaranteed, that things will come and rub you the wrong way.  But our response to offense determines what path our life takes. Many people are hurt and offended in life.  Always wounded, always victims, always feeling hurt.  Things…

Do You Have Stale or Fresh Oil? | Pastor William Bedsole Ps. 92:10 says, “I shall be anointed with fresh oil.”  The Anointing is the Presence of God.  It’s one of the most important things in our lives.  To anoint means, to rub; to smear.  God takes His Presence and smears it; He rubs it onto…

God’s Word is the Final Authority|Pastor William Bedsole In a world that is constantly changing, it’s imperative that believers are established in God’s Word.  God’s Word is our sure foundation.  It’s the rock our lives are built upon.  We think of Jesus as the Rock, but it’s also when we are doers of His Word…

Love, Acceptance & Repentance | Pastor William Bedsole We live in a day where people are hurting. People are looking for a place to belong. They’re looking for a place where they fit in.  Thank God, as believers, the Bible says we are accepted in the beloved. We, who were sometimes afar off and alienated…

Does God Want Me Sick? Pastor William Bedsole The statement, “God is teaching me through this sickness.” How many times have we heard this? People assume that there must be a divine purpose in them being sick. The Bible clearly states in John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal and to kill…

IS THE BOOK OF ACTS FOR TODAY? | Pastor William Bedsole Healing. Miracles. Speaking in tongues. When many people hear these topics, the first thing that comes to mind is, “That’s been done away with.” The Bible clearly states that God is a good God. Acts 10:38 declares, “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with…

Should Going to Church be a Priority? | Pastor William Bedsole  “You don’t have to go to church to be a good Christian.” This is a statement you often hear from people. Well certainly we can’t live in church 24/7. We all have lives to live, jobs we work, and families we lead, but people…

Is God in control? | Pastor William Bedsole I’m sure this is something you’ve heard frequently, “Well, God is in control.” It sounds good religiously, but it is inaccurate scripturally.
