    Local Church

    Let me further clarify my previous post, please. The LORD has always had His local, visible church (and churches) here, ever since He started the first one in John 20. They may not have always had Independent Baptist on the shingle (so to speak), but they've been here nonetheless. I believe there are truly born again folk in man-made denominations/churches and they do grow in grace, because God will honor His word (KJB), even though it may not be rightly divided. Furthermore, individual, local Independent Baptist churches may and do go liberal and when they do, they cease to be one of God's local churches. Oh and yes, the enemy has sown tares among the wheat, the LORD will take care of them/that.

    Brother H, Thanks for listening, thank/praise the LORD for you and your work as well! I believe that when the LORD saves someone, they'll align themselves with a Bible-believing, Bible-preaching/teaching, Bible-practicing church and in doing so, if they'll listen to the LORD, He'll lead them to an Independent Baptist church. If they disregard His leading, they'll be in rebellion and I believe they won't go any further in their relationship/fellowship with God. Are they saved and part of the bride? Maybe, but if so, they could leave this world prematurely, because of the aforementioned rebellion. Again, thanks for listening and they encouragement!

    Looking to convert.

    Where are you in GA? If you don't mind, please let us know and we'll do what we can to at least, recommend a church or churches to visit. Living in GA for a while, I can say though, it is getting harder and harder (anywhere for that matter), to find a strong Independent Baptist church.

    I believe Jesus established the church in John 20, which was after his resurrection, although reckon Thomas got in the next service LOL! John 20:19-23 KJB: 19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. 20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the LORD. 21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. 22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: 23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.

    HMMMM, BBB, good points, however, I personally believe that the church was started before Pentecost, but not in Matthew 16, John 20 IMHO. Matthew 16 is a promise for the future and in Acts 2, the church had to be there already, since folk were added to it. Speaking of adding, if I may do so, I'd like to add a link to a message I brought along those lines a while back from Colossians 1, if you please. I don't have it all figured out at all, but I believe this will further explain things and be a help/blessing. Sunday, May 6, 2018 http://jeremiah616.sermon.net/main/main/21147528

    LOL, I wondered, especially after looking at y'all's FB page! We had a dear friend/fellow church member when we lived in GA, with your same name and attend his funeral the Sunday before Labor Day.

    Belated "hello".

    Welcome AVW! I don't believe it's required to list your state, but if you respond to the Where Do You Go To Church topic in Prayer Requests, it's only right that you would!

    HMM, not sure if I can do that, since I'm using a screen-reader. I use keyboard commands ninety-nine percent of the time and when I have to use the mouse, it's a-hundred percent poking and prodding LOL! I'll give it a shot ASAP. Hey, maybe I should-a-tried to find Thanks a minute ago? LOL! Seriously, thanks for the help!

    I enjoy the Like feature, but when I click it, the choices go away before I can select one. All I can do is just like, but I'd like to do more than like LOL! I'm using Firefox with the NVDA screen-reader. Maybe I'll try it with Google Chrome?

    The Weeping Witness

    Right before Labor Day, our family went back to GA (where we lived for around three years, before moving to KY), to attend the funeral of a dear friend and church member. Brother Gary Wells, Pastor of the Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist Church, Summerville, GA, challenged his folk with what the LORD put on his heart for/on that Sunday morning and here it is, for your edification too. The songs before the message, are from my wife and I. http://jeremiah616.sermon.net/main/main/21272124
