Pastor Mike  

As followers of Jesus Christ, we come together to lift our prayers, our voices, and our hearts to the One who is truly worthy of our worship.  It is because of Him that we gather to hear God’s Word and encourage one another to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Savior.  Our prayer is that you find a community of faith where you too can belong and enjoy His presence with others who are on this amazing journey.

Mining the Mountains-The Daily Dig- April 2, 2020


The Daily Dig (Matthew 15:1-9) I believe that one area that is especially deficient in the American Evangelical church is our ignorance of the Wisdom of the Ages. This is odd to bring up with a passage that tells us about Jesus scolding the leaders from Jerusalem for making traditions, the wisdom of the ages, more important than the Word of God. Jesus wasn’t anti tradition. He was anti idolatry. The nation had placed traditions on a level that belonged to God alone. Now anything on that level other than God is an idol. Many people pride themselves as anti tradition. They say, “All I need is the Bible” (and hopefully the Spirit?). Unfortunately, what has happened in our American individualistic, liberty loving culture is a lot of people rejecting tradition only to start their own. When our own interpretation of Scripture becomes our gospel, then we have placed ourselves above God. Jesus was rejecting man-made traditions that become idols.
