CHOOSING A CHURCH

Personally, I have been in fellowship at the same assembly for 22 years and counting. I came there as a new believer at age 20 where I was greeted with firm handshakes and warm smiles. I didn’t know anything about church doctrine at the time. It was only love that kept me coming. Over the years, I have learned the doctrine, and over the years I have never found reasons to leave. In an attempt to simplify things, I will suggest there are really only three reasons to leave a church and join another. Doctrinal error The first and foremost [...]

RUTH TUCKER

Hello, my name is Ruth Elizabeth Tucker but most of my friends and family call me Ruthie! The oldest of five siblings, I grew up with the blessing of Christian parents. My parents were commended to Turkey when I was about a year and a half, and we lived there until I was eight years old. Once we moved back to the States we lived in Kentucky, and it was there that I trusted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. Taken from CMML Missions Magazine

GET REAL WITH GOD

At my home assembly, I serve as a high school youth group leader with several other young adults. As the other leaders and I build relationships with our kids, we’ve noticed the impact of being authentic while mentoring them. When sharing the lessons we’ve learned when we were younger, the youth respond by opening up about their own life challenges. The Lord has used this to create great relationships where we encourage the youth to follow Jesus Christ. Authenticity is a vital component for any healthy relationship. When we sense that someone is secretive or insincere, our trust and intimacy [...]

MELINDA & MIKE DILIONE

The first year on the mission field is exciting. It can also be overwhelming.We often hear first-year reports but they are written in hindsight, softening the trials and possibly forgetting the daily joys. So, when Melinda Dilione, and her husband, Mike, left for the mission field in January 2016, we took this as an opportunity to create an article that viewed the first year as it happened.

JIM GLEASON

The events Of 9/11 impacted many people. As a nine year old, I questioned the fate of all those who died. A couple weeks later while running an errand for an assembly workday with my dad, I asked him about them. As we discussed it, I realized I wasn’t prepared to die. In the parking lot of the local Home Depot, I asked Christ to forgive my sins and to be my Savior. I was baptized a couple years later. My family heritage greatly inspired my sense of calling to the mission field I grew up listening to the Story [...]

Pre-Tribulation Rapture

There is a great variety of prophetic views among God’s people. There are scholars, past and present who have held and do hold conflicting theologies. There are positions such as Amillennialism (we are now in the millennium), Post-Millennialism (we must see the world evangelized before Christ can return) and Pre-Millennialism (there will be a literal 1000-year reign of Christ on earth). There are those who hold a Preterist view. The word means “past” – a full-Preterist sees all prophecy about the Tribulation and return of Christ fulfilled in 70 A.D. A partial-Preterist sees some fulfillment in 70 A.D. and Revelation [...]

8 Ways to Win the Battle with Prayer

There is no doubt in my mind that believers are fighting a war. Lines have been drawn over traditionally held Judaeo-Christian beliefs. It is easy to forget that our fight isn’t against people who think, believe, practice or look differently than us. Our war is with the unseen-principalities, powers, spiritual forces of evil in heavenly places, the devil. Choosing our weapons It is easy to forget that the weapons and armor required in this battle are not arguments, but are truth and righteousness, the gospel of peace and faith, salvation. The Word of God and prayer. The Word of God, [...]

Nathan & Virginia Grice

Nathan’s Testimony I was raised in a Christian home in Omaha, Nebraska, with six other siblings. At age 10, our family moved to the countryside in Iowa. In the following years, the call and drawing of God became evident in my life and, a few months before my 16th birthday, I was born again. Christ made my heart new and I haven’t been the same since! But God wasn’t done with His work. In 2009 I was in a severe car accident, which resulted in a fractured skull, a speech impediment, a day in the ICU, three weeks in the [...]
