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 […]

Charity Begins At Home

by PGBC

I have to say that I am so blessed to get to serve alongside you here at Pleasant Grove Baptist. As March arrives that means I have been here eight years and I am so grateful that God led me and my family here and allows us to serve alongside you. I sincerely hope that God […]

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 […]

Hopefull

by PGBC

It is hard to believe another year is fast approaching an ending. To say that 2020 has been a most unusual year would be an understatement.

I realized today that this May will be three years since my daughter graduated from college. It doesn’t seem like it could possibly be true, but it is. Consequently, it is also true that May will be three years since Janice had her thyroid removed. Before this happened, I had no idea all that the […]

Why are you a Christian?

by PGBC

How would you respond to that question? If that came from a lost person it would be very beneficial to their eternity if you could give more than, “Well I grew up in a Christian home.” Or “I just always have been.” Peter reminds us that we should be able to give a defense, a […]

Choosing To Know God More

by PGBC

Some people like vintage more than new.  If you had the choice between a vintage car, like a 1968 Camaro SS or a brand-new Camaro SS, what would you be more inclined to choose?  If you had the choice between a 100-year-old house with lots of “character” or a brand-new house full of warranties, what […]

The Greatest Christmas Gift Ever

by PGBC

As I sit in my office and think back over 52 Christmas Days I am trying to think of memorable gifts along the way. I honestly had to struggle to think about some that I remember from childhood. I remember disappointment one Christmas morning when I was sure that I was going to get a […]
