The Blessing of Being Persecuted for Righteousness' Sake

Posted Feb 10th, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry


The final stage of being qualified to stand in the authority of heaven on earth is that of being persecuted for the sake of righteousness. The first thing to say here is that we must see the persecution come for the sake of righteousness, and not for any other reason. Persecution for the sake of any other issue is not what Jesus is speaking about here. This is not about being political activists, or doctrinal watchdogs, or adopting extreme positions on...

Dear FBC family,
DON’T FORGET…

…that also this Sunday at 10:30 is the induction service for Pastor Steve, with guest speaker Rev. Ian Coffey.

The Power of Peacemaking

Posted Jan 27th, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry


The New Testament understanding of making peace goes far deeper than merely working for a compromise between two or more parties so that hostilities can diminish. Peacemaking is a costly, self-sacrificing reality that finds its fullest expression in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Then, in His kind desire to share His blessing and authority with us, He invites us into the same kind of sacrificial life. Consider this passage from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians:
For He Himself is...

FYI

Posted Jan 25th, 12:00 by eastern-section on Church & Ministry


Dear Friends:
After consulting with our Superindendent Frank Potter and Gary Butler and Tedd Manning
the decision was made to reconfigure the Baltimore Region.  So, effective immediately the Superintendent
appointed Greg Cooper to be the presbyter of Circle Four.  Previously the churches moved

 following six churches: Bethel A/G in Savage, Pasadena A/G, ALC in Glen Burnie,

Purity of Heart and the Knowledge of God

Posted Jan 18th, 12:00 by Burning Heart Ministries on Church & Ministry


Apart from Jesus Himself, King David was a man who understood authority perhaps as well as any man ever has. He ruled the nation of Israel during its ascent to the pinnacle of power among earthly kingdoms, and he gave much energy to contemplating authority and what is required of those who will exercise it. In Psalm 24 David gives us insight into the authority structure of heaven, and the requisites for receiving that heavenly authority here on the earth....
