Know how to walk with God

Recorded in Genesis 5:24 are the words, "And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him." People down through the years have read these words and asked the question, "How can I walk this way?" As in all things religious we must look into the word of God to find the answer to our question.

God remembers you

Well, tonight is not one of my favorite times of the year. No, tonight we "spring forward." That is, we move our clocks ahead one hour so that we can enjoy daylight savings time for the next few months. I have to admit that in enjoy the sun being out later as we move through the summer. But oh how I hate to lose that hour of sleep tonight. And as a pastor I know that it will have an impact on church attendance. No matter how many reminders we get, someone will forget to move their clocks. Every year ...

First Baptist graduates 7 Stephen ministers

Residents of military communities like Hinesville, Fort Stewart, Liberty and the surrounding counties are often hundreds of miles away from their nearest family members.

That's what's up

"That's what's up!" is a very popular saying among youth and some "hip" older people. This saying usually is associated with a minor or major accomplishment by a friend, such as, "Wow, your new car is nice. That's what's up!" It also applies when you hear about something that's going to benefit you, such as, "You're telling me I can get a Big Mac for $1. Now that's what's up!"

Briar Bay Praise House is part of history

Nestled in Briar Bay at the intersection of Sandy Run and Berrington Ferry roads is a small wooden building known as the Praise House. Many longtime Riceboro residents have been attending services there for years. The Praise House was originally a one-room wooden structure, likely built decades before the Civil War. Not many records exist; most of the Praise House's history has been passed down in the form of stories from one generation to the next.

Shake it off, walk out on top

Once, a simple little song was written and it told the story of how a goat got caught in a well. After many failed attempts to rescue the animal, a decision was made to just bury the old goat in the well and count it as a loss. However, the more dirt the farmer threw in the well, the more the old goat would just shake it off and pack it under its feet. Eventually, the goat climbed out.

Thoughts, behavior can be conquered

Have you ever asked yourself, "Who would I like to become?" What people or events in life have hindered your reaching that goal? To achieve something, you have to remove all distractions that are blocking you from making progress. Fear stops most people from getting what they want - fear of failure, fear of success, fear of rejection, of the unknown, of disappointment. Then, of course, the "what if" fears always fuel these hindrances.

Listen to right one for eternal life
