From the Pastor...

A character so original, so complete, so uniformly consistent, so perfect, so human, and yet so high above all human greatness, can be neither a fraud nor fiction. The poet, as has been well said, would in this case be greater than the hero. It would take more than a Jesus to invent a Jesus. 
- Philip Schaff

He who clearly discerns the perfect character of Jesus will be most urgent in prayer for grace to grow like Him.  - C. H. Spurgeon

...If we would be truly enlightened, and delivered from all blindness of heart, let therefore our chief endeavor be to meditate upon the life of Christ.  - Gerard Groote

The inner life of Jesus was unique. It is the life of God lived out in a person. This life by His Spirit is given to every true believer. But it must be nurtured and sustained by a daily desire and decision to be in touch with the Lord; to receive the promised power to live His kind of life instead of our own self-oriented life. How serious can one be about this if they refuse to take time each day to come to God's presence in prayer and Hear Him speak to their heart through His Word? HE HIMSELF IS OUR POWER. Time with Him brings the necessary strength to resist the influence and control of the present world system.  - John A. Cerrato, Jr.

From the Pastor...

And this is the confidence that we have in Him: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.  - 1 John 5:14

God's promises are the signed check, made payable to order, which we must endorse and present for payment. Though the Bible be crowded with golden promises from cover to cover, yet they will be inoperative until we turn them into prayer.  - F. B. Meyer

It is utterly impossible for faith to overdraw its account in God's bank. God could no more disappoint faith than He could deny Himself. He can never say to faith, "You have miscalculated; you take too lofty, to bold a stand; go lower and lessen your expectations."  - C. H. M.

Let us come in full assurance, 
We whose hearts are purified
By the precious blood of Jesus
And in whom His words abide;
Great things let us ask, undoubting,
Through our faith in Him made bold;
He is faithful that has promised,
- He will nothing good withhold!

There is One whose love unbounded
Gave His Son that we might live;
How shall He not with Him, also,
All things else as "freely give"?
"Thou shalt call, and I will answer,"
Such th' assurance giv'n of old;
And He's faithful that has promised, 
- He will nothing good withhold!

- Mable Johnson Camp
