Here at VBC, we are preparing for a special time of meetings! Certainly we are asking God to reach down and touch us individually, corporately as a church, and impact our kids in the Academy! In the times in which we live, we need the Lord to REVIVE His work—we are launching out in faith believing He will work.

I like the way that Finney defined revival: “A Return to the first love resulting in conversion of sinners”

Psalm 85:6 “Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?”

So, What Kind of a Revival do we Need Today?

1) A Revival That Resurrects the Church
** Revival means a return of life **

A revival that awakens the saints
A revival that gets the saints on the move
A revival that brings new vision
A revival that makes the world take notice

2) A Revival that Rekindles Old Fires

Revive us again … must have been revived before
The Christian life is made up of many beginnings
Do you remember better days?
Days of dedication
Days of great expectations
Days of full commitment
Paul’s word to the Galatians: “Ye did run well” (Gal. 5:7)
Return to your “Bethel” … your greatest hour

3) A Revival that Rebuilds Broken Fellowship

4) A Revival that Restores Christian Joy

I am praying the Lord would send “this kind” of a revival to the people of VBC this week and start a spark that will fan into a great flame of seeing God move in great power!

Independence Day

“America! America! God shed his grace on thee…” 

What an incredible heritage we have in this country, may we resolve with greater tenacity than ever before to PRAY for our country and PROMOTE the reason for the great blessings we enjoy—Jesus Christ!

For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. ~Galatians 5:13

2 Timothy 4:3

Every effort to smooth out the road for men and to take away the guilt and the embarrassment is worse than wasted: it is evil and dangerous to the souls of men!
One of the most popular of current errors, and the one out of which springs most of the noisy, blustering religious activity in evangelical circles, is the notion that as times change the church must change with them. Christians must adapt their methods by the demands of the people. If they want ten-minute sermons, give them ten-minute sermons! If they want truth in capsule form, give it to them! If they want pictures, give them plenty of pictures! If they like stories, tell them stories!
Meanwhile, the advocates of compromise insist that “The message is the same, only the method changes.”
“Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad,” the old Greeks said, and they were wiser than they knew. That mentality which mistakes Sodom for Jerusalem and Hollywood for the Holy City is too gravely astray to be explained otherwise than as a judicial madness visited upon professed Christians for affronts committed against the Spirit of God!ckquote>

May God help us as Bible believing Baptists to stand firm for the timeless truths of Gods perfect Word! We are not talking about “out dated” in our approach to modern technology and inventions; rather, staying true to old time faith that was delivered to our for-fathers.

I have not put much (if any) information out on this via social media over the past couple months…but I felt it time to just briefly describe for all those that may follow me and the church planting ministry in Maine what God has been doing recently.

Simply put, the Lord has led me to take over a church in New Hampshire. Now, this was not something that I was seeking and/or even wanting…but over the past couple months—the Lord made it emphatically clear that this was His will and direction for my life and ministry.

You can read a little more on the details of how God moved me here. (this was a letter written to my preacher friends a while ago, but further explains some details)

We love Maine, the people we have invested in for over 10 years, and the church we saw planted! It is wonderful to see how God has continued to provide for WBC as well—the people just voted in a new Pastor (who is a native Mainer) and he should be taking over in a couple weeks! I am personally excited for WBC and their new Pastor…I believe God is going to take them to greater heights than I would have been able to!

The Lord has led me back to Victory Baptist Church in Londonderry, NH….the church where my church plant in Maine started! VBC was the reproducing church for us and WBC….in a way, it’s kind of like going home.  I believe the Lord is also going to do some great things at VBC….and I am humbled and excited about the Lord allowing me to be a part in His master plan!

If you contact me through a Maine (207) telephone number and/or the WBC email….that all has changed.  Please comment on this blog – or direct message me on Twitter or Facebook and I will give you my new info!

There is nothing better than following the Lord – even though at times it is difficult & we don’t understand – there is nothing sweeter than being in the center of His will! Thank you for your love and support  and we pray that will continue in the days/years to come!
