Latest Sermon - "The Dynamic Of Intimacy With God Through Prayer" -- Subscribe to our Podcast in iTunesTop

Join our mailing listChristianity is essentially summed up in one word: relationship. You remember in John chapter 17, what has commonly become known as the great high priestly prayer of Jesus - just before going to the cross He prayed to His Heavenly Father in this very intimate scene. One of the things He said in many precious jewels there is found in verse 3, and it's insightful in regard to how Jesus defines eternal life. Now most evangelical churches, if you were to ask, 'What does eternal life mean?', they might quote you a Gospel text, they might talk about going to Heaven when you die, making sure that your sin is forgiven, you have peace with God, you're trusting the cross alone for your salvation, you've repented and believed - and we know that that is very much the core of the Gospel. But Jesus defined eternal life in these terms: 'This is eternal life: that they', that's us as Christians, 'may believe in You, and know You' - that they may know You - 'the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent'. So Jesus couched our understanding of eternal life in the now, that it is actually embarking - through repentance and faith, of course - in an intimate relationship, personally, with God the Father, through Jesus Christ His Son, by the power and instrumentality of the Holy Spirit. OK, so He didn't mention anything about heaven or hell - although that's in the package, thank God for that - but He defined it in terms of our present personal experience of walking with God in this world...

"What Are You Afraid Of?" - Facing Down Your Fears With Faith
by Dr. David Jeremiah
"What Are You Afraid Of?" - Facing Down Your Fears With Faith, by David Jeremiah
For many people, worry, anxiety, and fear are constant companions: fear of death, fear of danger, fear of disease. And too often, these fears are crippling, keeping us from the life God has called us to live.

But it doesn’t have to be that way, says Dr. David Jeremiah. As Christians, we have been given all we need in order to face down even the most frightening, unexpected, and overwhelming obstacles in life.

In his new book, What Are You Afraid Of?, Dr. Jeremiah explores the top ten fears that are holding so many of us back from the life God has called us to live and shares the supernatural secrets for facing down these fears with faith. Subjects covered include: the fear of natural calamity, the fear of serious illness, the fear of financial collapse, the fear of failure, the fear of being alone, the fear of rejection, the fear of sudden trouble, the fear of mental breakdown, the fear of dying, and the fear of God.

Available to order from Amazon for Kindle (US and UK) or as a Paperback (US and UK) - 160 pages
A free PDF preview of the first chapter is also available from the publisher.
A Spanish edition is also available.
