  • Free Precept seminar is Aug. 29

    Have you ever thought, "There has to be more to reading the Bible than this?" Is your knowledge of the Bible based on what others have told you, or is it based on your own study of God's word? Maybe you have been encouraged to read and study the Bible, yet never shown how?

    If you want a better understanding of God's word, learn how to study the Bible the Precept way by asking the following questions: who, what, where, when, why and how?

  • Faith Column

    There is nothing natural about stepping off the platform of a 60-foot tower into nothing but thin air and adrenaline. I came to that conclusion the hard way some time ago when I took my first leap of faith into the world of bungee jumping.

    We made a quick trip to Tennessee that weekend to see a friend graduate from college and decided to spend the night. My wife and boys wanted to go into Gatlinburg the next morning, and I unenthusiastically gave in.

  • Faith Column

    How fast summer flies. Why is it that the three summer months turn into a blur, while winter drags on for weeks? This is another one of those questions for which there may be no answer.

    We all want answers — especially when the questions affect us personally: "How will the economy affect me?" "What does the future look like?" We all want to know the score of the game before it's over.
