Wednesday Q&A

"What is the problem of evil?" "What does it mean to be pro-life?" "Is there such a thing as a Reformed Pentecostal?" For the next several weeks, the pastors, elders, and staff of Covenant Baptist Church will be discussing questions like this, and along with others that have been submitted by you that deal with faith, science, culture, etc. 1 Peter 3:15 challenges Christians to have an answer for the reason why one has hope. So, if you are interested in finding answers and would like to learn more, please join us on each Wednesday evening at 6:30pm in the Sanctuary for the discussions. We hope to see you then!

Mexico Orphanage Ministry Update

Mexico Orphanage Ministry Update

Good morning from Mexico! Currently it’s 5:50 a.m. and I have never been up this early on a Saturday. As a lay in bed my thoughts are all about school. Tossing and turning I pull out my phone to make notes of things I need to print off for the kids. Few minutes later I remember something else. Then again and again until I decided to get up and start my day.

Five Hundred Years Later: Should We Care about the Protestant Reformation?

Ask the average American about the Protestant Reformation and you will undoubtedly be met with puzzlement.  Mention Martin Luther and someone will ask, “Wasn’t that the Civil Right s leader?”  No, that is Martin Luther King, Jr.  Despite our cultural confusion and ignorance, our church is celebrating the Protestant Reformation this entire month.  Now that invites a question.  Why are we commemorating the Reformation when so many churches are not? ...

Remembering the Sanctity of Human Life

Normally my Sunday mornings begin around four o’clock with a large pot of fresh coffee reviewing lessons to be taught that day and making final preparations for our worship services. Later, I take on my role as the enforcer making sure the children get ready per mom’s orders so we all leave the house on time.  January 22, however, was no normal Sunday.

9Marks Weekender Review

This past weekend, David, Michael, and I went to Washington, DC, to attend a "Weekender" at Capitol Hill Baptist Church... A Weekender is a special conference for elders to come to CHBC and to be exposed (immersed really) into the inner workings of their church and elder leadership... We were greatly impressed and challenged by what we saw and learned there...

Loving God with the Mind, Part 2

In my last post, dated Oct 15, 2013, I explained my desire to make the following case: Why Christian education is a non-negotiable in the life of the believer individually and in the life of the church corporately. I also stated, “There is a prevailing attitude in many evangelical churches that devalues rigorous study and scholarship in the local church.” In this post, I would like to expound on this problem among the laity.

A Thought From my Daily Devotions

Last month we looked at the humility of Elijah and how, after so much success, he might have “believed his own press” and thought he was responsible for so many miraculous things. Instead, he humbly trusted in the Lord to do His holy will. I noted then that it was not his stature before men that was important; it was his posture before God. But, as we saw in Moses’ case (in sermons on Numbers 11), the most humble and godly people can grow weary, fainthearted and even seem faithless...

Loving God with the Mind - October 15, 2013

As elder tasked with overseeing education at CBC, I am passionate about Christian education. There is a prevailing attitude in many evangelical churches that devalues rigorous study and scholarship in the local church. This naturally leads to many "ordinary" Christian's attitudes of disdain, contempt, or complacency toward learning. After all, it is work and many would rather play or earn than learn. The reality is that nothing could be further from our Lord's intent for disciples.
