Steps for Revival 1 Kings 8:47 “Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto thee in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness;” There is no doubt that a revival is needed in our nation. When you see the depravity that is accepted by Christians and unsaved alike, you can see that America is in…

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…

2 Timothy 4:3 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.

While I don’t believe the church should be outdated (as in 50 years behind times), I believe…

Samuel Chadwick, an old-time methodist preacher once said….. “The Church that is man-managed instead of God-governed is doomed to failure. A ministry that is College-trained but not Spirit-filled works no miracles. The Church that multiplies committees and neglects prayer may be fussy, noisy, entertaining and enterprising, but it labours in vain and spends its strength for naught. It is possible to excel in mechanics and fail in dynamic. There is a superabundance of machinery; what is wanting is power. To…
