HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING
DEEPLY ROOTED – GROWING TALL
HFBC is firmly committed to the Words of Jesus – Who said, “Come, Follow ME and I Will Make You FISHERS OF MEN!”
In order to become a Disciple of Jesus, one must understand the cost; not in terms of Quid Pro Quo – GOD doesn’t ask us for to “EARN” our way to Him – Rather the cost of being a Disciple of Christ BEGINS with a full acceptance of what He did on the Cross and then His rising again on the Third Day – Conquering Death! Praise Him Above ALL Creatures Here Below!
Once you have accepted His Atoning Death and Resurrection, a cost is applied for you to become His Disciple. Jesus said for us to “take up our cross daily…” Our cross is whatever is holding us back from growing into His likeness. You see when He said this He had just finished telling others, that in order to follow Him, you must hate your Mother and your Father…STRONG words. He didn’t mean for us to actually HATE our family. This is a POSITION issue; Anyone who desires to follow Christ MUST place HIM FIRST in their life.
This is easier said than done. Our families are a strong draw for us – And that is exactly what Jesus is attempting to get us to understand. Anything, or anybody, that takes our focus off of Him, will cause us to be “Milky-Toast Christians.”
Just take a look at the Church today – a mile wide, and an inch deep. Soft Christians who would rather be SAFE than OBEDIENT.
We, here at HFBC, believe in the Words of Christ. Peter told Jesus, “You Have the WORDS of LIFE!”
We BELIEVE THAT STATEMENT and take it to heart.
Come Join Us in Our STUDY of the WORDS OF LIFE AS WE BECOME:
