True Success

Even former Dallas Cowboy quarterback Troy Aikman is looking for purpose and real success. On the night of that first Super Bowl victory, he delayed attending a party with his teammates, instead ordering beer from room service and sitting alone in his hotel room for a couple of hours. “I kept thinking back to the time when I was a teenager how I thought that all my problems in my life would be solved the moment I turned sixteen and was able to get a car,” he recalls. “Well, here I was at the top of professional football, and I found myself thinking, ‘Now What? Now What?”


“Why would you feel that way?” A reporter Skip Hollandsworth asked. For seve...

Our Calling Compels Us

by Pastor Mike Sanders



Jeremiah 20:9 KJV Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.


God has given us an assignment from heaven! God has called us to get out of our comfort zone. We are called to tell the world. Anything short of telling every person about Christ is failure. We cannot save the world only Jesus can, nor can we force everyone to receive Christ, but we can tell as many people as God brings into our path.


Matthew 28:18-20 KJV And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye t...

The Most Unusual Message in History


Luke 1:26–38

By: Pastor Mike Sanders

A little girl once opened a big box under the Christmas tree to find a giant doll when set upright, towered over her. Her parents noticed a few minutes later that thetoyhad fallen to the side, but the little girl was having a ball playing in the oversized box. We’re apt to do the same at Christmas, discarding the baby but having a great time with the wrappings.[1]This Christmas season, I’d like to turn us toward that baby.

When Christ was born, He was named Jesus. The name of Jesus is a name above every name. It was a simple name because He identified with simple people.

“Jesus” is the Greek form of the Hebrew “Joshua,&rdqu...

I Pray For Revival In America!

I pray for revival in America!
By: Pastor Mike Sanders

America is blessed. I pray for revival in America! I pray that God will renew the church and he’ll awaken His people. Who knows what God might do in us and through us as we pursue Him and His righteousness.

Many are frustrated with our culture because they are disappointed with the direction of our country. Earlier this year, we had several football players who wouldn’t stand up during the national anthem. First of all, I love America and I’m very patriotic, but we have such knee-jerk reactions. Our first reaction is to start tearing down the person, as if that could help the cause of Jesus Christ. Second, social media exp...

Victory Over Death

BY: PASTOR MIKE SANDERS

The story is told of a dad who took his son on a fishing trip. A window was rolled down slightly, and a bee buzzed his way into the car. The little boy was frightened and grew more agitated as the bee flew around the interior of the vehicle.

Moments later the dad stopped the car and quickly grabbed the bee in his hand. He gripped the bee tightly until it penetrated the flesh of his palm. Leaving the stinger embedded in the flesh. Then he let it go.

The dad then explained, “Son, his stinger is in my hand. He will fly around a bit but remember that he cannot hurt you. The stinger is gone.”

Today you and I don’t have to fear death even though its presence m...

Breaking The Barrier To Faith

Breaking the Barrier to Faith

By: Pastor Mike Sanders

Are you facing a situation that demands an immediate decision, but you are unsure about what direction to take? Perhaps there has been a sudden change in your life, and you are wondering what to do next.

One thing remains right in your life; God has a plan for your life. If you trust Him, He will make a way for you through even the darkest of times.

Many barriers exist in our lives that keep us from having faith in God when we don’t understand our circumstances. These barriers are the same barriers that Moses faced when God called out to Moses on the backside of the desert. What are these barriers that limit our faith to trust God in th...

What Is Euthanasia?

temp-post-image

In response to the questions, I regularly receive from believers about loved ones suffering through the process of death I feel it necessary to express the biblical position on Euthanasia.

In our culture, have we lost our sense of the value of life? We abort the young and euthanize the old. The degraded view of human life has led to the approval of abortion and euthanasia. Humans are no longer viewed as an asset but as an inconvenience.

A proper understanding begins with a proper definition. According to the Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary, euthanasia is defined as “the act or practice of painlessly putting to death persons suffering from an incurable and distressing disease. E...

Be A Peacemaker Not A Troublemaker

temp-post-image

The mark of a mature Christian is to be a peacemaker and not a troublemaker. When we come to James chapter, four that is precisely the situation that James is dealing with in verse one, “where do wars and fights come from among you…” There was conflict within the church, and he is challenging God’s people to be peacemakers rather than troublemakers.

When we are called to be peacemakers, we are commanded in two different ways to be peacemakers. First and foremost to make peace with God. We need to get our hearts right with the Lord Jesus Christ, and then we need to make peace with one another. James mainly is focusing on us getting things right with God because he know...

Christmas: A Time For Hope

LUKE 2:32-40

temp-post-image

In reading about the birth of Jesus, we realize the Roman generals didn’t know anything about it. The Roman Caesar didn’t know anything about it. The Jewish high priest didn’t know anything about it. The Greek philosophers didn’t know anything about it. In fact, as we look more closely at the Christmas narrative, it seems as if it were only average people—not the notables or the religious leaders—who seemed to grasp the message of Christmas.

Anna may have been one of the “average” people in the Christmas story, but she was a spiritual giant. Why? Her attitude of the hope set her apart. Anna was widowed, and the Bible indicates she ha...

How To Respond To Tragedy

Luke 13:1-5

temp-post-image

It seems like every day we encounter tragedies from all parts of the world. Everywhere we turn we hear about life's tragedies.

Because of technology we are not isolated from calamities.

When tragedies strike, who is responsible? Some people blame governments, some people blame guns, some people blame God, some people blame the victims for their sin. So who is to blame? Jesus addressed these questions that will help us sort out this issue.

  • Pray

    • For the Victim's

    • For the Families affected

    • For the Law enforcement

    • For the Emergency personnel

    • For Revival/Spiritual awakening

    • For America

  • Prepare

The three crucial issues of life are these: the issue of suffering; the issue of death; and the issue of ...
