Daily Word

(from Spurgeon's Morning and Evening)
"He shall build the temple of the Lord; and He shall bear the glory."
— Zechariah 6:13

Christ Himself is the builder of His spiritual temple, and He has built it on the mountains of His unchangeable affection, His omnipotent grace, and His infallible truthfulness. But as it was in Solomon's temple, so in this; the materials need making ready. There are the "Cedars of Lebanon," but they are not framed for the building; they are not cut down, and shaped, and made into those planks of cedar, whose odoriferous beauty shall make glad the courts of the Lord's house in Paradise. There are also the rough stones still in the quarry, they must be hewn thence, and squared. All this is Christ's own work. Each individual believer is being prepared, and polished, and made ready for his place in the temple; but Christ's own hand performs the preparation-work. Afflictions cannot sanctify, excepting as they are used by Him to this end. Our prayers and efforts cannot make us ready for heaven, apart from the hand of Jesus, who fashioneth our hearts aright.
As in the building of Solomon's temple, "there was neither hammer, nor axe, nor any tool of iron, heard in the house," because all was brought perfectly ready for the exact spot it was to occupy—so is it with the temple which Jesus builds; the making ready is all done on earth. When we reach heaven, there will be no sanctifying us there, no squaring us with affliction, no planing us with suffering. No, we must be made meet here—all that Christ will do beforehand; and when He has done it, we shall be ferried by a loving hand across the stream of death, and brought to the heavenly Jerusalem, to abide as eternal pillars in the temple of our Lord.

"Beneath His eye and care,
The edifice shall rise,
Majestic, strong, and fair,
And shine above the skies."









Sermon and Lesson Topics

Though always seeking the leading of the Holy Spirit, Pastor Darren uses topic series to teach through. Sunday mornings are traditional hard hitting sermons, but on Sunday and Wednesday evenings, pastor prefers the open Bible Study format in order to include everyone's thoughts and questions, thus making it a more personal learning experience. We have Sunday School Classes for all ages. The younger groups use colorful handouts and teaching aids to be able to better grasp the lesson. In our adult class, we learn the deep mystories of the Bible and even engage in lively discussions and Q&A.
Sunday Morning Worship


The Baptist Way! What makes us Baptist? Our Name? Our Worship Services? No, it is our distinct "Landmark" doctrine that makes us Baptist. The fact that we teach, believe and practice in the autonomous authority of the local church, secure salvation by grace though faith, Baptism as a picturesque step of obedience and local body communion; these are the Landmark truths, long held throughout history that make us who we are.
A 13 week study of Baptist Distinctives.

Sunday Evening Bible Study

Our Sunday night focus right now is on the Pauline Epistles. We are slowly going through the letters written by Paul to the churches abroad and how they apply to us in the modern church and as individual Christians.
