Leslie and I have a very strong belief (something we call faith, which is not something from us, but from God) in the existence of God, personified in the existence of Jesus, the Messiah, the Christ, and the promises that He made to us and ALL of mankind with no gender, social, racial, ethnic, or geographic boundaries. Please understand before going any further that any comments made here concerning Christianity, or religion in general, are our comments based upon our views. We certainly hope that they fall in line with leading us and others to truth with the strength of the Holy Spirit. It is our belief that ALL of us come short of the glory of God, even IF we have a "finest hour" before He changes us completely, leaving NO ONE of us the right or power to condemn (eternally) another human being.
The intended purpose of this section is to do a little revealing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ using the internet as a tool. Anything that is written is going to be from the heart, but...please understand that this heart knows it is imperfect (very). We rely, again, imperfectly, on God to help us relate to others without offense. We do also want to use this website to link anyone who might be interested, to the home pages of church organizations that have influenced our understanding. We also intend to provide other Christian links that are of interest to us. It is our utmost desire that when you leave this page, you leave knowing a little bit more about Jesus Christ, God the Father, or Christianity in general, and that you leave encouraged. For those who are not affected in this way, please forgive us, but, at least, know something of our premise for faith.
Just click on a topic that you might find is applicable to your interests. We hope that anyone who visits this site will at least check out the first topic.
The Gospel, Abbreviated - This topic, when covered from beginning to end, takes about 45 minutes to read in one sitting. It is strictly scriptures that are believed to "highlight" what the Gospel is, who Jesus the Christ is, His authority, and what He expects of those who follow God. Whether you believe or don't believe in God, you might find this interesting reading. The scriptures are taken from the New International Version of the Holy Bible.
The United Church of God - I, Kelly, have had the great privilege of spending time in fellowship, praise, and instruction with the brethren of the UCG since October of 2007. My local congregation is full of loving, joyful, and involved people. Please take advantage of the resources offered by this worldwide fellowship and ministry of the Gospel. Much labor has been expended in bringing you wonderful instruction and guidance from the very word of God, and all without any cost or obligation to you -- and that includes no followup. Other sites of interest to me are also listed.
A Message from Kelly to Former Members of the Worldwide Church of God (1996) - To those who do not fit this topic's description, I do not believe you will find this of any usefulness. Former members of our congregation may feel the same, but it is intended to be useful to you. The church that I attended has experienced many traumatic changes in a very short time. These changes have brought about "extremes" of rejoicing and anger. Following this message is a prayer for all present WCG members and Christians who have left our fellowship. Again, these links remain online for posterity's sake.
Another Message to Former Members (2007) - It's amazing what a decade will bring. This letter is to former members of WCG from a former member, who, himself, has no church to share his faith with. Life goes on.
A Closing Message to Members of the Churches of God (2008) - Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
