The Holy Spirit and Our Singing

by PGBC

“Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit.  Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”  (Ephesians 5:18b-20 NIV) Singing is an important part of our worship […]

The Right To Practice Your Faith

by PGBC

As I write this article, I learned earlier today that the Supreme Court stood with Joseph Kennedy, a former part-time assistant football coach in Washington state. You see, Kennedy had the nerve to kneel and pray on the field after football games. Kennedy is, of course, a Christian and apparently, he was open about his […]

Finish The Task of Obedience

by PGBC

12 For the word of God is living and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, even penetrating as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are […]

Waiting On God

by PGBC

I will have to admit that I am not a very patient person. The ministry has taught me to be careful to wait on God, but I am by no means really good at that. I have a tendency to want to move quickly but God often reminds me that His timing is not our […]

He Lives!

by PGBC

In This month where we celebrate Easter, may we never take for granted the necessity of the death of Christ. If He was not willing to shed His blood for our sins, then we could not be forgiven and none of us could enter the Kingdom of Heaven. In the Gospel of John, we find […]

Summer Is Coming!

Summer is coming! Are you ready This year our youth will have the opportunity to attend a week-long adventure camp at the Georgia Baptist Mission Board’s Camp Kaleo. Kaleo, pronounced kal-eh’-o, is the Greek word which Bible translators render as “called ones.” The staff at Kaleo believe that as Christians we are called to bear […]

Which Part Are You?

by PGBC

1 Corinthians 12:14 – 17 “For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear says, “Because I […]

There Are Only Two Options For Eternity

by PGBC

I must confess that back at the end of August when we started walking our way through The Revelation, I was not overly excited about it because it can be a difficult book to deal with. The first three chapters are straight forward and not so complicated but as you move farther into the book […]
