I know many of you are discouraged in these days. Take heart, He has overcome the world! Our goal is to display His glory in our life in every circumstance. We display His glory when we bear up under suffering. It is displayed when He gives us supernatural joy in the middle of pain. It is displayed when we experience the peace of God in the middle of a storm. It is displayed when our faith grows in the middle of difficult circumstances.

And the church has historically been marginalized and persecuted. Yet she has always stood for life, for the right to life, and the ability of people to flourish throughout life. God makes every person in the image of God. He has a purpose for each person.

We also stand for biblical truth regarding sexual ideology. The individual, the family, the church, and the world are healthier and happier when God’s standards of sexuality are followed. We want to do all we can to promote the nuclear family.

We also stand for the biblical definition of justice. The Bible says there is neither Jew nor Greek, male or female, we are all one in Christ Jesus. Where injustice and oppression occur, we stand against it.

And we most certainly stand for grace and forgiveness. There is no one outside of God’s reach. Adrian Rogers said, “There is no one so bad they can’t be saved and no one so good they don’t need to be saved.” No matter who you are, no matter what you’ve done, no matter how you feel about yourself, Jesus Christ died for your sins. You have hope in Him. You find eternal life in Him. Come to Him in repentance and faith and He will never cast you out.

There is always hope in Jesus. Paul said, “Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God.” I love you all. God bless you!
