I know four JC’s and I love them all. When we lived in Plantersville, MS, before believing the Lord was leading us to Midland, I absolutely loved when Herbert and JC invited me to go fishing with them. We would drive to the Tombigbee Waterway, put Herbert’s big pontoon boat in the water and head … Read moreFishing

God is far more concerned with who We ARE than with what we DO. When we discover who we were created to BE in Christ, what we DO will be pleasing and we will be naturally doing the will of God. This principle is so simple, that most folks stumble over it. Jesus said that unless we … Read moreWhat Christ Needs From Us Is…
In my opinion, the most vital Bible passage for this moment is Paul’s 1 Corinthians, Chapter 13. Love is the password, the “pin” to Heaven. Love is that which “constrained” the Apostle to burn the candle at both ends, all the way to his execution, which is believed to have been by decapitation in Rome. … Read moreLove is the theme

The “it” is “God is good ALL the time, and ALL the time God is good.” Events all throughout history have led many to be either atheistic, sure there … Read moreGod is Good!
I am sorry to report that due to some serious health issues with Key of Mercy founder and great guitarist George Eagle, the presence of this great Gospel group is very much in doubt for any of our revival services. PLEASE pray that the Lord will touch Pastor Eagle with His mighty healing hand!
