If you have personally experienced the incredible power of God to transform your life you naturally want to see others have the same experience.
Transformation is a visible process.
For example, you can see the light or the sparkle restored to the eyes through hope. You can see shame lose its grip as people look in your eyes when talking to you instead of looking down. You can see their smile and hear the laughter where once only mourning and tears existed. We desire to help people experience the blessing of a transformed life. But what happens when someone you care about rejects God's invitation to live a different life through his power? more >>
A Pastor fell from grace many years ago. His behavior was dark and despicable. Deservedly, he lost everything. After a long season away from the Lord, just like the Prodigal son, he repented. He received forgiveness from God and eventually experienced restoration from Christian leaders and Christian counselors.
His is a story of God's grace and the hope of a fresh start with God through Christ. This man is once again serving his Savior in a church. It's a 'win' for the kingdom.
Recently, this Pastor approached a minister he believed to be a friend – a minister who said he had forgiven this Pastor – and the Pastor asked the man if he might accept an invitation to be a guest speaker at the Pastor's church. What the fellow minister said next was as surprising as it was devastating. more >>

"The Religious Right is dead," proclaim political analysts on both the conservative right and liberal left. Phrases like "Post-Christian America" and "Post-Evangelical culture" abound. Yet, a mere two decades ago, these accusations would have gone unspoken. Perhaps it is time to consider if something, indeed, has gone wrong within the Evangelical community.
It is true that a fast-growing separation between the traditional moral values of Evangelicals and their twenty-something kids – the Millennial generation – exists. An Evangelical identity crisis is certainly underway, but that does not mean it is time to write our eulogy just yet.
Evidence pointing to a fast-growing spiritual and moral decline cannot be ignored. Baptists are America's largest Evangelical bloc. Yet, many young Baptists are abandoning their traditional values, largely admitting that they no longer see church as a relevant part of their lives. During his remarks to the 2001 SBC Executive Committee, SBC Vice President at the time, T. C. Pinckney, made an astonishing admission. He stated that research revealed approximately 70 percent of teens involved in a Baptist youth group were leaving the church within their first two years of college. more >>
