      by Wayne Brewer

        When the children of Israel desired to have a king in order to be like the nations around them God told Samuel; “You shall solemnly warn them and show them the behavior of the king who will reign over them” (1 Samuel 8:9).

        COME AND SEE 

        by Noah Icenhour

          It can be so hard to know the best way to share the gospel with our friends and neighbors. We know the truth that the gospel teaches, but we also know the preconceived ideas people have against the truth and the church of Christ. It can be hard to know the best way to present […]

          by Noah Icenhour

            A large chunk of my ministry at this point in my life is involved with working with teens. Part of the fun of working with teens (but also a great challenge to your self-esteem) is the fact that they can be brutally honest. They will tell you if you tend to be a little boring […]

            WHAT IS THE “SIN UNTO DEATH”?

            by Dennis Gulledge

              “If anyone sees his brother sinning a sin which does not lead to death, he will ask, and He will give him life for those who commit sin not leading to death. There is sin leading to death. I do not say that he should pray about that” (1 Jn. 5:16). This verse has always […]

                PUTTING OTHERS BEFORE OURSELVES

                by Noah Icenhour

                  One the first words we learn as toddlers is “me.” Once that word is learned it is worn out! Although there are exceptions, from the time we are toddlers we tend to be very inward focused. Children don’t quite grasp the idea of sharing. A friend shared something with me that helps learn how to […]

                  by Dennis Gulledge

                    A few weeks ago I ran part one of this article designed to explore ways in which evangelists and elders, pastors and preachers might work more harmoniously together in God’s kingdom and in the local church. I continue that theme with this article in the second part. A better relationship is well within the reach […]

                    SAVED BY FAITH

                    by Noah Icenhour

                      Recently a member from Mabelvale (Sam Rowlett) and I have been studying with some people from Maumelle that I met through Craigslist. They attend a local denominational church that is known for doing really good in our community, but they are lacking in the area of authentic worship in the process of becoming a Christian. […]
