Go Into All the World

Last week we looked at Christ’s declaration that He would build His church and the fact that we need to be yielded, useful tools and building materials for Him to use how He sees fit. The final verse we looked at in Matthew 16 was where Jesus told His disciples not to tell anyone who…

Christ is Still Building His Church

I am thankful that our Lord is still at work here at Summerville Baptist Church. I am also thankful that our present ministry has many things that are continuing on from our beginning days as a church.
