The SAME Power?

The resurrection of Jesus was The event that changed history! Many don’t yet understand or believe that, but they will. For those of us who do, however, I posed a question yesterday that, I hope, God has been rattling us with: IF you believe that Jesus has risen, AND you have committed yourself to a […]

What’s Next?

Christians and Christian churches around the world just celebrated the most important weekend of the year as we remembered Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday. These are two of the three most important days in Christianity (the other, of course, being the day of Jesus’ birth). Here at Kalamazoo Community Church, as in millions of churches, […]

Where Are The Mighty Ones?

What does it take to be ‘Mighty’? I’m not talking about muscles, weights, etc. I’m talking Eternally ‘mighty’. Is there anything that would make God think of us as ‘mighty’?
