Inspirational Christian speaker and author Joyce Meyer has been calling on Christians to pray and offer support to Christian ministries in Haiti as they recover from the impact of Hurricane Matthew, the most dangerous storm to strike the region in years.
"Yesterday, our partners in Haiti were preparing for Hurricane Matthew and today it has hit this country with full force. Please pray for Haiti, it's people and their protection today," Meyer wrote on Tuesday on her Facebook page, linking to Love A Child, a Christian ministry in Haiti.
"We've reached out to our partners on the ground in Haiti, Love A Child, Inc., and we've sent funds to help provide for the immediate needs of those affected by Hurricane Matthew: food, supplies and medicine, etc. We are also monitoring how it might affect the USA too," Meyer added in a follow up post. more >>
A young Pentecostal congregation that launched three years ago in Indiana had their church building constructed in just 24 hours last week as part of the "Church in a Day" project.
Michael Faulk, pastor at New Life Church in Cumberland whose congregation started in April 2013, told The Christian Post that the "walls went up" on Thursday morning and "24 hours later the building was complete with carpet and paint." On Friday the church spent the day "moving into and decorating our new facility."
"Having a permanent location within our community will allow us to move forward with reaching our community. It will also allow us to expand our ministry to areas that were previously not possible within the confines of our rented space," said Faulk. more >>
If you ask Mike Foster, it is high time to throw a party or two for anyone living under the crippling power of shame and failure, because God our Father never intended for us to live there.
As God's beloved, we cannot stop being loved by Him; "beloved" is our truest identity in Him.
Foster, the founder of People of the Second Chance, a nonprofit organization that's guided by the lofty ideal that every person deserves a second chance, said in an interview with The Christian Post that he wants his new book, People of the Second Chance: A Guide to Bringing Life-Saving Love to the World, "to be almost like a $15 therapy session." more >>
Americans are divided as to whether religious freedom or LGBT rights should be favored when the two concepts conflict with one another.
Recent findings from the Pew Research Center show the American public near evenly split on whether or not a business can refuse to service a same-sex wedding on religious grounds.
Out of a sample of about 4,500 adults, Pew found that 48 percent of respondents believed that businesses which provided wedding services should be allowed to refuse to service gay weddings if the owner has religious objections. 49 percent of respondents believed that businesses should be required to service same-sex weddings despite religious objections, and 3 percent said they were unsure. more >>

Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini has announced that he's starting a new ministry looking to bring Muslim people to Jesus Christ, adding that he was told to do this directly by Christ 16 years ago.
"As you all know I was in prison for more than 3/5 years because Jesus met me 16 years ago and told me: 'I am coming back soon Go to preach my Gospel' and until today I didn't disobey Him and I will never disobey Him," Abedini wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday.
The pastor spent three and a half years in an Iranian prison for his Christian faith, and became the subject of major campaigns by persecution watchdog groups who called for his release. Abedini was finally granted his freedom back in January when he and three other hostages were released after President Obama gave the Iranian regime $400 million. more >>
