Don’t Miss the Blessing!

By Jim Johnson | Oct 17, 2018

Let us Exalt Christ similar to the ways of John the Baptist

By Jim Johnson | Jan 18, 2018

John the Baptist lived on earth at the time of Jesus.  He was ministering, but there came a time that he would step down and proclaim the ministry of Jesus to be more superior then his own.  Indeed, the timing of this event is really a transition time between the Old Covenant and New Covenant. …

By Jim Johnson | May 20, 2017

As I hear from parents who have children enrolled in ECA, one common thread seems to be more important than anything else: “to train up children in the way they should go” and help them “to acknowledge God” in all aspects of life. Let’s take a brief look at three verses which support these concepts,…
