THE CHURCH NEEDS TO CHANGE

by Noah Icenhour

    “The Church is so old fashion!” “The Church needs to add things to make worship more entertaining!” “The Church needs to change its view on women in worship to connect with this culture!” “The Church needs to change!” It is very likely that you have heard some of these statements before. Maybe there was someone […]

    YOU KNOW WHO I AM TALKING ABOUT

    by Noah Icenhour

      You know who I am talking about. That family member, parent, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin, friend, best friend, youth minister, preacher, elder, deacon, Sunday school teacher that walked away from the church. They were your role models, your friends, your family, your source of encouragement, the reason you came to know Jesus. One day […]

      WHY AM I NOT GROWING SPIRITUALLY?

      by Noah Icenhour

        When I first began college, I was very ambitious. I had made up my mind that I was going to try to read seven chapters from the New Testament, seven chapters from the Old Testament, memorize at least one or two verses everyday, and read a Bible related book as often as possible! This didn’t […]

        DOES HE REALLY CARE?

        by Noah Icenhour

          Picture this. You are on ship traveling. You recently left your family and everything you knew behind you. You have many questions flying through your head. You are nervous about what lies ahead. Nothing is for certain, other than the fact you bought into the ideas of a man named Jesus and you decided to […]

          WHAT ARE YOU GETTING OUT OF WORSHIP?

          by Noah Icenhour

            We live in a society where the question is often asked, “What’s in it for me?” This has often been true of worship as well. In the overabundance of variety in the religious scene of America, many pick their place of worship based on what they are able to get out of it. According to […]

            Do You Really Believe?

            by Noah Icenhour

              Ask yourself that question. Do you really believe? Maybe you claim to be a believer—someone who has faith in God. Maybe you attend church every week, study your Bible and spend time in prayer every day. You may do those things, or you may not, but let me ask you again: do you really believe in […]

              DOES GOD CARE HOW WE WORSHIP?

              by Noah Icenhour

                  Look at the churches around you. There is so much variety. Everywhere you look you see churches that claim to be of one body, yet they all have fundamental differences at their core. This can be seen by simply walking into their worship services. Everywhere you go the worship consists of something a little […]

                REALIZING HOW SMALL WE REALLY ARE

                by Noah Icenhour

                  Have you ever noticed how many people take pictures in front of really breathtaking and majestic backgrounds? Maybe you have seen someone take a picture in front of an ocean, a mountain range or even something as mind blowing as the Grand Canyon. A summers ago I traveled to Wyoming with Dr. Miller and Dewayne Bryant […]

                  TRACING CONNECTIONS

                  by Noah Icenhour

                    Noah Icenhour             It is good to finally be at Mabelvale! For about a year and a half I have been talking to the elders about coming to Mabelvale. It started my junior year of college when I came to be a part of the winter Mexico mission trip that […]
