“No man can tame the tongue.” That’s certainly a strong statement that can be rather discouraging if we’re, to be honest. However, the key word in that verse we read in James is “man.” As you’re probably well aware, we as believers rely on The Spirit, not the flesh. In today’s message, Pastor Ray reflects on how we can either choose to speak from the flesh or The Spirit. In his study, you’ll learn the importance of committing to bu...

Many of us have experienced our fair share of moments where we immediately felt regret after saying something we wish we didn’t. Unfortunately, sometimes we’re absolutely oblivious to the damage caused by words we thought were completely harmless. As Pastor Ray will teach you in his message today, this is why it’s extremely crucial that we mind our tongues as believers. In his study, you’ll learn the importance of filtering your wo...

It’s rather unfortunate how so many of us have a complete lack of awareness when it comes to our choice of words as we interact with others. This can be especially true when it comes to confrontations, arguments, or even simple disagreements. In today’s message, Pastor Ray reflects on the power of the tongue and its ability to either build others up or tear them down. In his study, you’ll learn the importance of guarding your tongu...

As believers and followers of Christ, it can be easy for us to get so caught up with an interpretation that we fail to let Scripture speak to us. When it comes to James discussing faith without works being dead, we all too often get hung up on the legalism debate. In today’s message, Pastor Ray will speak clearly about what it is that James is addressing in his letter to The Church. In his study, you’ll learn how coming before the ...

Whenever we hear the word “works” many of us are quick to throw the baby out with the bathwater so to speak. However, it’s important that we understand the definition and context of the word works when it comes to our faith as believers. As Pastor Ray will teach you in his message today, the works in the life of a believer speak to the transformation that should be taking place. In his study, you’ll be reminded that while grace com...

What type of faith would you say you have? Is it a dead faith that was once thriving and needs revival? Is it a faith no better than that which demons have, who believe and shudder as James says? Or is it a dynamic faith that’s regularly growing and learning? In today’s message, Pastor Ray discusses the importance of reflecting on the state of your faith. In his study, you’ll gain a better understanding of how faith and works speak...

I’m sure that you can think back on a time when you did something as a child that you got away with. You can probably also think back on something you did that you should’ve been more severely punished for. This is an example of mercy and grace. Today, Pastor Ray is going to be talking about the difference between the two. He tells us that mercy is not getting what we do deserve, but grace is getting what don’t deserve. God offers ...

Sin is something that is completely inevitable. Why? Because we were born into sin. We are all naturally sinners. There is no one perfect except for God. Today, Pastor Ray is going to be talking about the penalty of sin. God tells us that the penalty for sin is death; however, if we will cling to Him and turn from our sin we will have ETERNAL life. This is the greatest gift anyone on this earth could ever receive. We can never comp...

If you have cracked open a Bible even once in your life, there is no secret that our world today is living completely contrary to how God designed it. Things that were once forbidden are becoming a cultural norm. Today, Pastor Ray is going to be talking about the standards that God has set for us. These things that God put into place for us have never changed, and they never will. Though the world may change, the Word of God never ...

Let’s face it, now more than ever we are seeing division in our communities. Yet, what is so incredible about our Jesus is that He doesn’t focus on the political view, the favorite sports team, or even look at the ethical background we come from - He looks for the one in need. Today, Pastor Ray is going to be sharing a message about Partiality. Through this, you will see how regardless of who you were or who you still are, Jesus no...

Partiality is defined as an unfair, biased opinion about someone or something. I’m sure you could come up with an example of how you have shown that before. It’s a part of our human nature and it isn’t always a bad thing; however, today Pastor Ray is going to be talking about how we as Christians should not show partiality to the people around us. Why? Because Jesus did not show it to us. He chose to love us despite what He knew we...

In life, we will face difficult circumstances, and odds are, we won’t always deal with them the right way. We will fall, we will hurt people, and we will do things that we are not proud of. This is why when Jesus was hanging on the cross He shouted, “Forgive them; for they know not what they do!” Jesus knew we would fall short, BUT the beautiful thing is that He still loves us the same. In today’s message, Pastor Ray will be talkin...

There are so many “all-in-one” cleansing packs out there. Whether it's your skin, your house, or your dog, one company is likely claiming to have the secret ingredient to do it all! But what about our souls? What about our hearts? Is there a secret ingredient for that? Turns out there is!

Don’t you wish there was a fancy remote that would allow us to rewind time for all of those silly things we said or mistakes we made!? I’m sure we could all think back on a time when that would’ve been useful! Well today, Pastor Ray is going to be sharing a message with us about being slow to speak and quick to listen. As we all know, this is quite possibly one of the most difficult things to master as a human; however, God tells u...

Have you ever heard the saying “Garbage in, garbage out?” I can remember my 3rd-grade teacher always reminding us of that in her classroom. It simply means that what you allow into your ears is what will eventually come out of your mouth. Today, Pastor Ray will discuss the same exact concept. The Word of God is alive, and when we read it, it breathes life into who we are as a person. If we will surround ourselves with the things of...
