"Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;"
(Hebrews 1:2-3 KJV)
The important conviction of the Book of John is that believing in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, as Our Awesome God's only begotten Son, will allow sinners to be saved from their sins and have everlasting life with Him in heaven (John 20:31). In order for the unbeliever to believe he must hear about Our Awesome God and Jesus Christ and he needs to have a little faith that the Son of God is able to provide this salvation. (The truth of what he hears should be confirmed by reading the Holy Bible, God's Word to man.)
With this in mind, read the Book of John in God's Holy Bible as he makes you see who Jesus Christ is, the miraculous signs He did and the eye witness testimony about Him. All this was possible because Jesus Christ was there when this universe was created (Genesis 1-3).
In Hebrews 1:3 above, the Holy Bible says that Jesus was the agent by which all things were created (Colossians 1:16, Hebrews 1:2). Think of all the things that were created by Jesus Christ from the littlest molecule to the dinosaurs, from the distance the earth is from the sun to how fast our planet spins on its axis, all detailed and precise with no room for error in order that all will work. Think of all the occupations that He had to fulfill: Creator, Engineer, Doctor, Biologist, Artist, Oceanographer, etc. No one could have done all that was done except Our Awesome God and His Divine Son, Jesus Christ.
The Bible contains five Books that the Apostle John wrote. This man was with Jesus Christ from the beginning of His ministry here on earth until about 98 AD when John died, so he knew Jesus and wrote about his Lord. Read John's Books in God's Holy Bible, covering Jesus Christ from creation to the final judgment.
LWBC is a Bible believing church that tries to live Jesus Christ's commandment to "love one another as I have loved you." (John 15:12 KJV).

"These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
(Acts 17:11 KJV)
"For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:"
(1 Peter 2:21 KJV)
In the Christian walk through life and toward heaven, we must first have accepted Christ as our Savior, repenting of our sins and agreed to obey Him. Once we have become a Christian it is time to start growing in our knowledge and belief in Our Awesome God and His Son, Jesus Christ. All of us want to grow up and most of us know that if we don't grow we will eventually stagnate. So it is essential to grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ. However, just growing for the sake of growing is not the intention of God. God expects our growth to lead us to more Christ-like living.
Over the last two years, the articles written on this web page have been intended to help us to grow toward maturity in Christ and that idea will continue in 2016. We need to know the way to increase our growth so here are ways to grow. 1) We Must Study God's Word so that we can recognize His Word when we hear it. Read James 1:18-28. 2) We Must Pray - so that we are talking to Him, and listening for His answers and getting to understand Him better. Read Matthew 26:31-75. 3) We Must Fellowship with Other Christians so that we understand what they have learned, adding it to our own knowledge. Read I Corinthians 12:12-27. 4) We Must Witness for Christ - so that we realize what we believe and why. Read Acts 26:12-29. 5) We Must Obey God - so that we realize that obedience to Our Awesome God brings God's awesome power and knowledge to take the right course of action to correct a problem. Read Romans 6:14-23.
Our growth to maturity will never be complete until we reach heaven, but we need a church that is teaching and moving toward maturity for us to grow, for otherwise we stagnate. It is hard to know what Our Awesome God wants us to do to further His Kingdom so we must keep in close contact with Him and His Holy Word, spreading His Word and watch how others are being successful. But always preaching and teaching from His Holy Bible.
Join us as we work in Our Awesome God's vineyard. Our church starts with small groups on Sunday at 9:30 AM and a Worship Service at 10:30 AM. On Sunday evening at 6:00 PM, a Bible Study meets for an hour with a children's program called AWANA extending to 7:30 PM. There are plans for more during the week of Bible Discussions in homes. Prayer meeting is on Wednesday. We love visitors!
