necessary_christian_full_cover.jpgThe Necessary Christian discusses the perceived shortcomings and shortsightedness of the worldwide Church of Jesus Christ (which is, to a certain degree, the reality). It points to the Church’s frequent failures to present a relevant, righteous alternative to an ever-darkening planet of people in desperate search of answers and hope.

AGC Values - Loving Relationships

Posted by donna on May 3, 2013

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I loved you, that you also may love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples if you have love one for another." (John 13: 34, 35 NASV)

Since Vision is the destination of our journey and values are the tracks we ride on, I want to take several months to highlight our AGC Values.

Loving relationships refer primarily to our capacity to engage people into our lives.  Do we readily allow new people into our lives or do we subconsciously send the rejection message?

Easter Message from Bill

Many religions in the world promise some type of an afterlife that includes a "better than this" type of message. What makes Christianity unique among all other forms of religion is that the promise is not only an afterlife but a "new Life" beginning now that will go on forever.
