For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
 
 Strength and Encouragement Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord - Psalm 27:14 The blind poet John Milton, a devout Christian, famously observed: "they also serve who only stand and wait." This kind of service -- the service of patiently waiting on God's timing, on God's direction, on God's plan -- can be the most difficult and grueling to render to God. We are tempted, in a time of uncertainty or calamity, to rush to our own set of solutions; we might even feel irresponsible to simply wait prayerfully for the Lord to give clear direction. And yet we must. Twice the command is repeated in this single verse: wait. Our answers are usually not the right answers. Our instincts cannot be trusted. Our hurried assessment will doubtless yield an inadequate response. So, dear believer, wait. Wait on the Lord because he will strengthen your heart. He will answer your prayers. He will give the direction you need. He will send the help you require. In his own good time and in his right way, God will come to you when you wait on him. So be of good courage! Do not despair because the solution has not presented itself yet. Do not presume that God will not keep his appointments. He has promised to strengthen you, so wait, I say, on the Lord. About us We believe that the gospel of Christ is the hope of the world, and it's the heart of the church to bring that hope to others. This belief is the foundation of our church and informs all we preach, teach, and practice. Additionally, we believe the Bible is the inspired word of God. We believe in one God who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus is the son of God, taking on humanity to reveal God to the world. He is the savior of this world, taking on our sins through death on the cross and resurrecting so that we might live eternally with God. We believe the Holy Spirit dwells in believers and empowers them to live Godly lives.. We also believe in the power of prayer and encourage believers to take everything to God in prayer.
