Dayspring Wesleyan

We are working to become a congregation built around VERBS.  That does not just mean “busy”, but about doing the things that honor God and lift up the amazing Jesus, Son of God and our Savior. We are not fundamentalist in style, although we believe in the biblical basics and fundamental teachings.  We try to avoid judgmental attitudes and prefer love and grace as the best context for truth.  We woudl rather build bridges to others rather than walls between us. We are made up of a wide variety of church backgrounds, including returnees to the church and those with  a history of no church.  Our connections are Wesleyan, which is of the Methodist heritage.  Our worship services consider elements of tradition, and yet press ahead to stay contemporary and relevant. The four verbs that drive our sense of mission are: REACH, GROW, WORSHIP AND SERVE.  All of this is in the context of connecting people to God, through Christ, and connecting people to one another and our world.  We would welcome you checking us out and ask any questions you have.  And your involvement would help us continue to become who we are meant to be!   2431 Marion-Mt.

Abundant Life Assembly of God

Living Life with Purpose! Jesus said in John 10:10, “I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full.” (NIV). There is no better way to live a full life than to have a purpose for living. Paul understood that having purpose brought passion to living. You can read about this in Philippians 1:12-18. God wants you to enjoy life. A personal sense of purpose works in two ways. First, we work on it. Then, it works on us. Once Paul had determined his life mission, that purpose daily improved his attitude. In prisons, shipwrecks, beatings, through trials and debates, Paul kept on smiling because of his strong sense of purpose. He understood that people can either surrender to their circumstances, or they can surrender to a cause that is so great, their circumstances won’t matter. When we surrender to our circumstances, we have good days and bad days. We are at the mercy of what happens to us. When we surrender to a cause or purpose, we have good days wherever we go; the purpose never dies. Paul’s attitude helped his purpose go forward, then his purpose helped his attitude go forward! His attitude helped him conclude that it didn’t matter what happened to him or others–so long as the mission continued. The people who attend Abundant Life Assembly understand that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ helps us find, understand, and pursue our purpose in life! We believe that healthy friendships provide resources and encouragement in reaching God’s best for us! We offer Sunday Morning Worship and Small Group opportunities throughout the week to foster and nurture these relationships. People of all ages can come and find people who enjoy their relationship with God and others. May you find God’s Best as your purpose in life!

Christian and pro-choice at the same time?

“Is it possible to be Christian and pro-choice at the same time?” Answer: Abortion has been a hotly debated topic in American culture for the past forty years. Proponents on both sides wave statistics and viewpoints that many sincerely believe to be the only right way. For the sake of clarity, let’s define the terms “pro-choice” and “pro-life.” For the purposes of this article, “pro-choice” will be defined as “the belief that a woman should have the legal right to abort her unborn child at any point in the pregnancy.” Pro-choice advocates believe abortion is a personal decision and should not be limited by the government or anyone else. “Pro-life” will be defined as “the belief that every human life is sacred and no one, including the mother, has the right to end an innocent life.” Pro-life advocates hold the view that life from the moment of conception should be protected. So, should a Christian be pro-choice or pro-life? A Christian, according to the Bible, is someone who has accepted God’s offer of forgiveness through Jesus’ death and resurrection. Salvation is a gift of God through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ (John 3:16-18; Ephesians 2:8-9;Acts 16:31; Romans 10:9). What we believe about other things is a matter of growth, not of salvation. However,2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” When we give our lives to Christ, He begins to change us: our way of thinking and our way of behaving (see Isaiah 55:7). Our bodies become the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 3:16;6:19). Our minds are renewed through the truth of God’s Word (Romans 12:1-2). Our attitudes, perspectives, and behaviors gradually change to be more like those of Christ (Romans 8:29; Galatians 5:22). This transformation doesn’t happen overnight. Many Christians are still what the apostle Paul called “carnal” (1 Corinthians 3:1-3; Romans 8:6). Carnal Christians trust in Jesus for salvation, but they still think, act, and react like the world. Often, they are new to the faith or simply have not allowed the Holy Spirit free access to every area of their hearts. They are trying to live the Christian life in their own strength, while still being heavily influenced by the world’s way of thinking. The carnal mind has not been fully renewed by the Word of God and still seeks compromise with the world (James 4:4). Carnal Christians allow the persuasive viewpoints of the ungodly to sway their opinions on many things, including abortion.  Spiritual growthrequires us to shed our old ways...

Marion Grace Brethren Church

“They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common.” (Acts 2:42-44) The purpose of Grace Brethren Church of Marion, and preeminent goal, is for each individual member, and for the body of believers, to grow into a deep, personal knowledge of Jesus Christ and to serve Him completely.
