It’s Only Jesus
by Curt Dodd on May 10th, 2024
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. – John 14:6  Many people think that the way you get to heaven is just to go to church, be a good person, and love your brother as yourself. All of that is important, but you don't have the power to do that consistently without having a relationship with Jesus.   Do you know why? Sin! We were bor...  Read More

by Curt Dodd on June 12th, 2023
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people -- for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.

The Power of the Cross
by Curt Dodd on April 3rd, 2023
For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel -- not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. (1 Corinthians 1:17-18)When you take seriously the work that Jesus did on the cross, it will make a difference in your life. A...  Read More

Asking out of Faith
by Curt Dodd on December 8th, 2022
 Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked. “Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.” Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.  (Matthew 20:32-34)One of the things that separates Christianity from all other religions is that we can experience salvation by faith alone. In order to have a persona...  Read More
