Christ Interdenominational Ministries

All who believe in the Word of GOD and salvation through Jesus Christ!

STATEMENT OF FAITH: We believe the Holy Scriptures as originally given by God, divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy; and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct... One God , eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit... Our Lord Jesus Christ , God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediatorial work, and His Personal return in power and glory... The Salvation of lost and sinful man through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ by faith apart from works, and regeneration by the Holy Spirit... The Holy Spirit , by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ... The Unity of the Spirit of all true believers, the Church, the Body of Christ... The Resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation

Mission: It is our common goal to fulfill Christ’s commission for a continual, worldwide sharing of the Gospel, the integration of new converts into a body of believers (the church), and the teaching and discipling of those individuals. Additionally we seek opportunity to care for the sick, needy, and helpless. Lastly, it is our goal to respond to the Scripture as it calls us to worship God both individually and in a corporate community of believers.

Amen Sis!

Last Seven Sayings.John Fullbright III.1

Back in the day!


1. The United States has 5% of the world's population, but 25% of the world's prisoners.

2. The total incarcerated population in the U.S. is a staggering 2.4 million — a 500% increase over the past 30 years.

3. One in every 108 adults was in prison or jail in 2012.

4. One in 28 American children has a parent behind bars.

5. At the end of 2007, 1 in 31 adults was behind bars, on probation or on parole.

6. Currently, 65 million Americans have a criminal record.

7. There are more people behind bars today for a drug offense than there were in 1980 for all offenses combined.

8. The U.S. spent $80 billion on incarceration in 2010 alone.

9. About as many people were returned to prison just for parole violations in 2000 as were admitted in 1980 for all reasons combined.

10. Parole violators accounted for more than 35% of all prison admissions in 2000. Of those, only one-third were returned for a new conviction; the rest were returned for a technical violation, such as missing a meeting with the parole officer.

11. A first-time drug offense carries a sentence of 5-10 years. In other developed countries, that sentence would be six months of jail time, if any at all.

12. The vast majority of those arrested with a drug offense are not charged with serious offenses. For example, in 2005, 4 out of 5 drug arrests were for possession, not sales.

13. In the 1990s, marijuana possession accounted for nearly 80% of the spike in arrests.

14. Three out of four young black men in Washington, D.C., can expect to serve time behind bars. This is despite the fact that people of all races use and sell drugs at the same rate.

15. African-Americans comprised 12% of regular drug users, but almost 40% of those arrested for drug offenses.

16. More than 96% of convictions in the federal system result from guilty pleas rather than decisions by juries.

17. Conservative estimates put innocent people who plead guilty between 2% and 5%, which translates to tens of thousands of innocent people behind bars today.

18. Eighty percent of defendants cannot afford a lawyer. Tens of thousands of people go to jail every year without ever talking to a lawyer or going to trial.

19. A public defender will routinely have a caseload of more than 100 clients at a time.

Mary Visits Elizabeth
39 At that time Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, 40 where she entered Zechariah's home and greeted Elizabeth. 41 When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 In a loud voice she exclaimed: "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! 43 But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. 45 Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!"

[11/27/14]   For Every Mountain

I've got so much to thank God for,
so many wonderful blessings,
and so many open doors,
a brand new mercy along with each new day;
that's why I praise You, and for this I give You praise.

For waking me up this morning, (that's why I praise You),
for starting me on my way, (that's why I praise You),
for letting me see the sunshine, (that's why I praise You),
of a brand new day (oh).
A brand new mercy (that's why I praise You),
along with each new day;
(that's why I praise You, for this I give You praise).

You're Jehovah Jireh (that's why I praise You),
You've been my provider (that's why I praise You),
so many times You met my needs (that's why I praise You),
so many times You rescued me (oh).
I wanna thank You for the blessings (that's why I praise You),
You give to me each day;
(that's why I praise You, for this I give You praise).

For every mountain You've brought me over.
For every trial You've seen me through.
For every blessing, hallelujah;
for this I give You praise

[11/11/14]   Are our lives abundant? Are we reaping the rewards of following God's way of life? Have we begun to enjoy the benefits of keeping God's commandments?

Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

(13) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:
Fear God and keep His commandments,
For this is man"s all.
(14) For God will bring every work into judgment,
Including every secret thing,
Whether good or evil.
New King James Version

Despite our humble, modest circumstances, are we living abundant lives? Despite our lack of toys, a mansion on the lake, or a Rolls-Royce on our driveway, are our lives better than we ever expected? Or do we feel that life has passed us by, serving us the dregs instead of the wine? If so, could it be that we need a change of perspective?

J. Paul Getty, at the time perhaps the richest man in the world, said, "I hate and regret the failure of my marriages. I would gladly give all my millions for just one lasting marital success." He possessed the money to live whatever lifestyle gave him the most satisfaction, but at the end of his life, he came to realize that a good, enduring marriage meant more to him than riches. He died feeling like a failure at what life is really all about.

King Solomon lived a similar life of wealth, power, and privilege. The book of Ecclesiastes chronicles his lifelong experimentation with various lifestyles, projects, possessions, hobbies, and creature comforts. What does he ultimately conclude about how humanity should live?


1 Corinthians 2:12

(12) Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by GOD. (New King James Version)

As the apostle Paul begins his first letter to the Corinthians, knowing that he is writing to a congregation divided among various factions, he patiently explains to them what makes them different from those in the world yet at the same time unites the members of the church. He, of course, refers to God's Holy Spirit, given to all Christians at conversion by the laying on of hands. The apostle John calls it "the anointing which you have received from Him" (I John 2:27), implying that Christians have been ordained, and thus set apart or sanctified, to a task or office that others have not been given.

On the one side are Christians who have freely received God's Spirit, and on the other are all other human beings who, Paul says, have received "the spirit of the world." Thus, there is a clash of spirits, a collision of motivating forces, at work between the Christian and the world. The apostle writes in Galatians 5 that the two spirits are diametrically opposed, one producing "the works of the flesh," while the other bears "the fruit of the Spirit" (verses 16-25). In fact, he declares in Romans 8:7, "The carnal mind is enmity against God"; the worldly person, imbibing of the spirit of this world, lives in hostility to God and cannot do what God commands.

The apostle's overall goal in persuading the Corinthians that they should "be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment" (I Corinthians 1:10), he emphasizes that they have this one commonality, God's Holy Spirit, that makes all the difference to them as individuals and as a congregation. So, as he goes on to say, there is no reason for them to be so judgmental one against the other, for they all "have the mind of Christ" (I Corinthians 2:16). Having one mind and being all in one Body of Christ, as he later discusses (I Corinthians 12:12-27), dividing themselves into cliques is both counterproductive and contrary to God's purpose.


I love it when I’m reading the Word (Bible) and am surprised to find out that part of a story represents or symbolizes something that I never would have guessed. Sometimes there are people, animals or things in a Biblical story that I am sure represent something bad. Obviously the snake that deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden is a representation of something evil (Genesis 3). No doubt that the golden calf made by Aaron represents a lifestyle and attitude that we need to avoid (Exodus 32). But be careful! There are many examples of stories in the Word where without real study, you may end up misinterpreting what the Lord is trying to tell you.

One wonderful example of this is the concept of the “Black Sheep”. The dictionary defines a Black Sheep as, “A person who is regarded as a disgrace or failure by his family or peer group.” Nobody would want to be the black sheep! Surely if there is a story in the Word where a black sheep is mentioned, it represents something you want to avoid. Sometimes, yes. But not all the time!

Recall the story of Jacob in the book of Genesis. Jacob worked for His uncle Laban for many years as payment for his two daughters, Rachel and Leah. When Jacob’s years of work were complete, he told Laban that he was ready to go back to his own county. Laban then said to Jacob, “Name me your wages, and I will give it.” Jacob could have asked for anything. He could have asked for the best of the sheep and the cattle. But what did he ask for? “I will pass through all thy flock this day, removing from there every speckled and spotted animal of the flock, and every black one among the lambs, and the spotted and speckled among the goats, and these shall be my wage.” (Genesis 30:32) Jacob wanted the black sheep!

There is a wonderful representation here, that may come as a surprise. In order to receive what is good and true from the Lord you must have innocence. Part of innocence is being willing to acknowledge that without the Lord in your life you are nothing but evil; if left to yourself you tend to love evil things and think evil thoughts. In this story “Black sheep” represent people who have this innocent acknowledgment that they are not perfect; that they do tend towards evil and false things. “White sheep” on the other hand represent people who think that they are perfect; people who think that they merit heaven and all the good things there. Which does the Lord want, the white sheep or the black sheep? In this case he wants the black sheep! He knows that only those who are innocent enough to acknowledge their “blackness” are spiritually open to receiving His Divine love and wisdom.

[10/31/14]   We need to note some principles concerning the con-artist.
For example;

All of us at some time or another are going to bump into a Jacob or Laban in this life, MAT 26:47-49, And while He was still speaking, behold, Judas, one of the twelve, came up, accompanied by a great multitude with swords and clubs, from the chief priests and elders of the people. Now he who was betraying Him gave them a sign, saying, "Whomever I shall kiss, He is the one; seize Him." And immediately he went to Jesus and said, "Hail, Rabbi!" and kissed Him.

Of all of the different types of people that it would be nice to avoid, the Jacob's and the uncle Laban's are on top. They can be people with a pleasing personality, sometimes they have an attractive way about them, they can even give the impression of being great believers or great spiritual leaders or successful at what they do. But they can be described as personality peddlers, they are con-artists. And you haven't lived until you've been taken in by one. And if it could happen to The Lord Jesus Christ, as it did in MAT 26:47-49, it can happen to us.

[07/05/14]   Question: "What does the Bible say about hospitality?"

Answer: Hospitality can be defined as “the quality or disposition of receiving and treating guests and strangers in a warm, friendly, generous way.” In the New Testament, the Greek word translated “hospitality” literally means “love of strangers.” Hospitality is a virtue that is both commanded and commended throughout Scripture. In the Old Testament, it was specifically commanded by God: “When an alien lives with you in your land, do not mistreat him. The alien living with you must be treated as one of your native-born. Love him as yourself, for you were aliens in Egypt” (Leviticus 19:33-34, emphasis added).

[07/04/14]   Does your heart find fulfillment in helping others?

Do you find that you are a good friend to others, but they don't seem to be good friends with you?

Have you searched yourself to seek why life seems to challenge you so much?

If you want answers to all these questions and more......
