Irrespective of size, join something truly amazing that will change your life forever and ever!

Small Church or Megachurch, Does it Matter?

I'm not sure at which point we are on the upward curve, in terms of the increase of Christianity, but I wholly believe that we are poised to witness some of the most amazing events ever seen on this earth and not all of them will be particularly pleasant.

From the beginning of the early church there being varying sizes of gatherings, from the book of Acts 2:41 "Those who believed what Peter said were baptised and added to the church that day - about 3000 in all (NLT) And still today, Christianity is on the increase around the world.

Written by // Nigel Maine Categories // God, Faith & Miracles

Why is it we can't seem to get it right when we pray?

Prayers and our Big Mouths

Prayer and its effectiveness is always a sensitive area for Christians. Some say it works, some say it doesn't, some have never tried it and some swear by it!

I came across the information below which seems to make complete sense; however, I am confused as to why so many Church leaders quote the same Scripture yet view it completely differently than below?

ISIS: Fighting Fire with Fire

In the battle with ISIS You cannot fight a spiritual war with physical artillery

ISIS: Fighting Fire with Fire

In a world where faith and spirituality are ridiculed, even by some Christians, it’s not surprising that the West appears to be doing nothing about the atrocities in the Middle East.

From where I’m standing, it all seems pretty clear to me. Our world has become so self-serving that it has dispensed with all this God stuff and continues with the self-styled order that allows anyone and everyone to reject the past – even if it was right and even if it foretold our future.

Is silent prayer the same as thinking and should we pray out loud?

Written by // Nigel Maine Categories // God, Faith & Miracles

When it comes to praying should we do it in silence and if so how is it different to thinking?

Is silent prayer the same as thinking and should we pray out loud?

There is a great deal of uncertainty in the Christian faith about how to pray. We all want our prayers to be answered and of course we expect God to hear us. However can prayers be effective if we simply think them or should they be spoken out loud?
