The first words out of Jesus' mouth, found in Matthew 4:17-19 "Change your Mind", and "follow me"
We do this by reading the Bible "His words", and walking in them daily.
How we started 50 years ago: Our Part of Jesus' Family, (We are God's Kids)
Where do you begin when you start building a puzzle?
Well, you first locate the four corners, next all the pieces that have a straight edge. Once you have built the frame, we call the foundation, and slowly you add piece by piece until you have the complete picture.
The puzzle on the left was described to us over 50 years ago when a man of God showed us how to read the Bible, it started by laying a good foundation. In other words, finding the Chief Cornerstone, which is Jesus, and staying within the framework, found in the Bible.
Please join us and we will show you how this is done, Lord willing.

“Hi, I’m Gilbert and these are my friends, David and Andy. We’re here to tell you about the Kingdom of God.”
My friends and I would introduce ourselves in this way when we would go out door to door in different communities in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. We would go out in pairs, two by two as Jesus tells us to do in the Bible:
Luke 9:1-2 (1-6) says, “Summoning the 12, He gave them power and authority over all the demons and power to heal diseases. Then He sent them to proclaim the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.”
Luke 10:1 (1-16) says, “After this, the Lord appointed 70 others, and He sent them ahead of Him in pairs to every town and place where He Himself was about to go.”
I would tell them my name and my friend's name simply as an introduction. More importantly, tell everyone about the Kingdom of God.
The Kingdom of God, according to Romans 14:17 is, “…Righteousness, Peace, and Joy in the Holy Spirit.” It’s not at all about us – It’s all about the Kingdom of God!
Now, how do you know that the 2 people standing on your front porch are truly sent there by God?
I John 4:1-3 says, “Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to determine if they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit who confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God. But every spirit who does not confess Jesus, is not from God. This is of the antichrist…”
John 14:11 Jesus says, “Believe Me that I Am in the Father, and the Father is in me.”
John 10:30 Jesus also says, “The Father and I are One.”
