We are a family of believers that are being transformed by the love of God. 

We have found that God truly loves us and has a plan of life and hope for each one of us.  Each one has a testimony of how God has healed, delivered, provided, protected or helped them.  

Jesus Christ died on the cross for us so that we can receive new life, hope and help.  

You can find new life.

You can find hope. 

 You can find a place to belong.

Reflecting Compassion

Read Ezekiel 43:1 through 46:24; James 5:1–20

A favorite hymn at this time of year is “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” where the words recall God’s compassion and mercy as they review how faithful He is.

The Lord is full of compassion and mercy (James 5:11).

Compassion means a “sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it.” Mercy and compassion are so intertwined that many of the definitions in the dictionary for mercy include the word “compassion.”

Although God is holy and cannot look at sin, He had compassion on humanity and sent His Son to die for the sins of all people.

Christians should reflect God’s mercy and compassion to others. This can be accomplished by meeting the needs of others, doing things like providing food and shelter, arranging for medical care, listening when someone needs to talk, and a being a friend.

Prayer Suggestion: Lord, may Your people remember Your compassion and mercy and show them to others.

Quicklook: James 5:7–12

Two years after the founding of the Assemblies of God, members adopted 16 beliefs for the Fellowship. This list, known as the Statement of Fundamental Truths, remains virtually unchanged. Four of these beliefs are considered the major tenets of the Fellowship. They are:

1. Salvation Through Jesus Christ (John 3:3, 16, 17; Romans 10:13; Ephesians 2:8, 9)
Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life.
2. Baptism in the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8; 2:4; 17, 18, 38, 39)
All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.
3. Divine Healing for the Sick (James 5:14-16)
Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.

4. The Second Coming of Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:14-16; 1 Corinthians 15:51, 52)
The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years.
