Synergy is an uncommon word defined as, “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.” We rarely think about that word as it relates to evangelism, and what we are doing together through the ministry of our Cooperative Program giving.  Perhaps it can be best understood by the story of a “Horse Pull” at the County Fair.  A pulling contest was held in which (click "Read More" to continue).

Acts 1:8 The Lord instructs us to go be missionaries to all people groups and language groups.  In the United States many of these language groups have come to us.  Therefore, the opportunity to share the gospel and start new churches among them is at our door step.  One such language group is the Spanish speaking people known as Hispanics or Latinos.  Most are from Central and South America. In Buncombe County the U.S. census tells us that...(Click "Read More" to continue).

My memory goes back many years to when I was a child. In late spring each year, my mother would buy crepe paper in many colors and would begin making flowers for Decoration Day on May 30th. We would arrive at the cemetery in Madison County with boxes of flowers to decorate relatives' graves. We would sing and listen to uncles preach and then have "dinner on the ground." Memorial Day originated as Decoration Day after...(click "Read More" to continue).

I-26 Rest Stop Ministry   In Psalm 23 we are reminded of the Good Shepherd’s loving care for His sheep that leads to their cup running over. In Acts 4:31 and Ephesians 3:20, we hear of how God’s power is at work through lives filled with His Spirit. And in Acts 2:1-4 we are told of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon God’s people. On May 27, 2017 (today), the Buncombe Baptist Association will serve our awesome God through the I-26 Rest Stop Ministry. This ministry...(click "Read More" to continue).

In the book of Matthew we find a verse that has been called the love commandment. A group was trying to trip Jesus up by asking Him, “Which is the greatest commandment?” Jesus replied by quoting from Leviticus. Jesus’ words are simple. Love God and love your neighbor just like you love yourself. If we are going to heed these words, we must first

Focus Scripture:  Psalm 139:14  “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.”  Praying for the Minister’s Child I’m sure you’re familiar with the names Denzel Washington, Condoleezza Rice, Marvin Gaye and Jessica Simpson.  Why would I mention these four individuals and what do they have in common?  (Click "Read More" to continue.)

Today Buncombe Baptist Association senior adults will come together to enjoy a Senior Adult Patriotic Celebration Luncheon.  Psalm 32:8 comes to my mind as a verse that seniors in our churches can understand from personal experience.  Often it is as we look backward that we understand how God has instructed and taught us.  As a senior I am grateful that at times when I was not paying close attention to God, He was paying close attention to me keeping me on the right path.      When I think about my God’s eye upon me, I am reminded of...(Click "Read More" to continue).

Focus Scripture:  1 Timothy 2:1-4  "I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
