“David was following his ‘comparative advantage’ with great strategies, and we can do the same,” he adds.

Pentecost: Then and Now

At the 11:00 am service on Sunday, May 23rd, we celebrate Pentecost.

“Pentecost is a great metaphysical story of how the disciples’ spirituality ceased being a second-hand religion. Instead, it actually became a powerful force that they could directly use to overcome the serious challenges they were facing,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

We will look at Pentecost experiences from both back then and in our modern world.

Heaven and Hell in a Handbasket

We recently passed the second anniversary of the fire at Notre Dame. At the 11:00 am service this Sunday, May 2nd, we will look at the spiritual lessons from this fire at the Parisian Cathedral.

The Golden Key: How To Use It In Difficult Situations

At the April 25th Sunday service we will continue looking at Emmet Fox’s Golden Key.

Dr. Rick Belous explains.

The Golden Key

Rev. Dr. Rick Belous starts a new two-part series on Emmet Fox’s wonderful book, The Golden Key.
“It is a great and practical solution to the many problems we face,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

Paul’s Advice To The Romans: Nothing Can Separate Us From God … Well, Almost Nothing!

At the April 11th YouTube service, we will look at some important advice the apostle Paul gave to the young church in Rome.

“Paul, in his letter to the Romans, said that nothing can separate us from God – well, almost nothing. We unfortunately can shoot ourselves in the foot and erroneously believe that we are separate from God,” Rev. Dr. Rick Belous notes.

He will suggest some ways we can stop shooting ourselves in the foot.
