Prayer is a strong wall and fortress of the church; it is a goodly Christian weapon. — Martin Luther

But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body’s growth in building itself up in love (NRSV).

The church is an organism, not an organization; a movement, not a monument. — Chuck Colson

"The church of Christ has been founded by shedding its own blood, not that of others; by enduring outrage, not by inflicting it." — Jerome

"Tell the truth, have you ever found God in church? I never did. I just found a bunch of folks hoping for [God] to show. Any God I ever felt in church I brought in with me. And I think all the other folks did too. They come to church to share God, not find God."
-- Alice Walker

Things calmed down after that and the church had smooth sailing for a while. All over the country -- Judea, Samaria, Galilee -- the church grew. They were permeated with a deep sense of reverence for God. The Holy Spirit was with them, strengthening them. They prospered wonderfully.
-- Acts 9:31 MSG

“Those with whom Jesus identifies himself are regarded by society as misfits. And yet Jesus is that person who is hungry; Jesus is that woman who is confused and naked. Wouldn’t it be extraordinary if we all discovered that? The face of the world would be changed.”

I am thankful that we are one day closer to the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. Media has utilized the date-setting false prophets of our day to desensitize society to the reality of the return of Christ, but that does not negate its truth. I feel the Holy Spirit compelling me, more and more, to remind people that Christ is returning as he promised, and we are to always be ready.
So many in our day, both inside and outside the walls of the church building, base what is right from wrong on what feels good, what is socially acceptable, what media and Hollywood suggests, instead of on Scripture. They are not hearing much different coming from behind the pulpits, and they are not reading the Bible on their own. Many go to church and only hear about receiving God's blessings. This bless-me-and-all-that-I-do message mimics many of the books written today by popular television preachers. Continue Reading >>

"In the last days, the Bible tells us of a horrible series of events that will take place in the lands of Israel and Syria. One of these events is the disappearance of Damascus as one of the premiere cities in the world." Read more at RaptureReady.com...

We sang together, we worshiped the Lord together, we laughed together, we cried together, we hugged each other, and we loved on one another. It was a glorious service and gave us all a taste of what it will be like around the throne of God with people represented from all nations worshiping God for all eternity (Revelation 7:9-10 ESV).

"Write this letter to the angel of the church in Sardis. This is the message from the one who has the sevenfold Spirit of God and the seven stars: 'I know all the things you do, and that you have a reputation for being alive -- but you are dead. Wake up! Strengthen what little remains, for even what is left is almost dead. I find that your actions do not meet the requirements of my God.'"
-- Jesus, Revelation 3:1-2 nlt

Beloved, Jesus promised that the end of this age would come. Jesus promised that he would return for his faithful followers. Be ready. Until he returns for us, continue to proclaim his kingdom through your words and your actions. Doing so builds endurance. Read more...

One who receives this Word, and by it salvation, receives along with it the duty of passing this Word on... Where there is no mission, there is no Church, and where there is neither Church nor mission, there is no faith. -- Emil Brunner

"I'm going to speak to you simply as a pastor, as one who, together with his people, has been learning the beautiful but harsh truth that the Christian faith does not cut us off from the world but immerses us in it; the church is not a fortress set apart from the city. The church follows Jesus, who lived, worked, struggled, and died in the midst of a city, in the polis."
- Archbishop Oscar Romero

We are thankful for the people that God gives us who make this worldwide ministry possible. Because of giving people, the ministries of LGF are now touching 17,772 people per day around the world with the message of Christ. It's a message of conviction mixed with God's grace that will help many grow strong in Christ and avoid the eternal consequences of sin. We know that many give to this ministry sacrificially. Please know today that God honors the sacrifices made for His Kingdom.
We are praying to be able to do more ministry to more people around the world as God supplies the needed resources through generous people who love God and people. LGF is very thankful for monthly supporters, and also for those who can donate when they can. No donation is too small and all are answers to prayer. If you would like to help keep this ministry going strong, helping touch even more people for Christ in the days ahead, please click here and find out more about supporting LGF
Together, we can make a difference in our day!
Thanks for partnering with us!

The Christian faith for most people is not communicated by doctrinal pronouncements ... but by what goes on in the church in its most local setting. It is here, in the church down the street, that people are caught up in the Gospel promise -- or are turned away.
- James C. Fenhagen, from his book Mutual Ministry

Help me, Lord, to remember that religion is not to be confined to the church... nor exercised only in prayer and meditation, but that every where I am in Thy Presence.
-- Susanna Wesley

Together, we are his house, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets. And the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself. We are carefully joined together in him, becoming a holy temple for the Lord. Through him you Gentiles are also being made part of this dwelling where God lives by his Spirit.
-- Ephesians 2:20-22 nlt
