The gospel is Jesus Christ states that through Christ, those people that are of the world and those that are dead in the world are given life through Him. Those at Grace Centers of Hope have come to be given new life and for many years, right across the street there is a church that was turned into a bar. Pastor Clark and those at Grace Gospel Fellowship have held onto their belief for many years that God would turn Clutch Cargo’s back into a church and it is through the love and support of the Luther family that this dream and this hope finally came to pass. We look at this building, not just as a place with four walls that we go to worship, we look to this building as a promise from God that He will do that which He promises and He will bring life to the things that were once dead. The first church service will officially be held on Easter Sunday of 2014 and stay tuned as you can watch with us, the restoration of this building, the restoration of many lives, and the restoration of the gospel.
“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”
Brad Jones shares his faith in Christ and shares about his relationship with God, who is not only his friend but also his strength. Each of us has a special calling on our life and each of us also has a unique relationship with Jesus Christ. Brad shares that it is through surrender to the call of God on our lives that we are given the ability to see the world through His eyes and to walk with Him daily, whether that means having faith that through trials and tribulations that God is working out and perfecting His will in our lives or simply asking daily, “Lord, what would you have me do for you today?”
Brad also shares that even through his failures he finds the way to fight through it and to always walk on the path God has laid before him, knowing that God is still working through him because he knows that whatever it is that he is led to do, it all for God and His glory.
Each of us walks daily with the Lord, and it is through sharing our struggles and our strengths with one another that we have fellowship and understanding and love as the body of Christ and we hope that through this, we can help to encourage one another and to help one another.
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you encounter trials of any kind and be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith brings out endurance and steadfastness and patience. But let endurance and steadfastness and patience have full play and do a thorough work so that you may be made perfect and lacking nothing.”
