We realize that this church is not for everyone and God never intended it to be. No, we are not going to bring the Lord down to meet our standards. No, we are not going to waiver on which Bible we are going to use. No, we are not going to water down the message in fear of who will be offended. No, we are not going to compromise on God’s standard of sacred music. No, we are not interested in providing “fun” and “rowdy” children’s activities (this does NOT mean that we don’t care about children). Perhaps A.W. Tozer said it best when he said, “Jesus Christ never offered amusement or entertainment for His disciples, but in our day we have to offer both if we are going to get the people.” (“I Talk Back to the Devil”, page 52) No, we will not be having movie and popcorn night at the church; nor will we be holding fundraisers to support the church.
Here at the Second Chance Bible Church, what we are concerned about is people coming to a genuine salvation that can only be possible through the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that it is important for people to know the truth and to have a knowledge of the the Bible. One thing is for sure and that is “what you win people WITH, is what you win people TO.” and we have a world that proves that to be true. The people in our community (and the entire world) do NOT need another movie, another bag of popcorn or piece of BBQ chicken, another rock concert, a magician, a comedian behind the pulpit or any other form of gimmick. This community (and world) needs Jesus Christ! I truly believe that we are living in “the last days” and these are the days right before the Lord Jesus Christ will rapture His church.
2 Timothy 3:1-5
This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
You tell me! Do we see all of these things in our world today? GET READY!! THE LORD IS COMING!!
