  • Friday Night Services Video Blog

    We've been doing this daily redemption blog for over a month now.  We hope the experience has been as gratifying for you as it has been for us.  If, by some chance, you are still confused on what redemption really is, than we implore you to watch this video of our Services from Friday night.  At the core of our mission is the principle that nobody is un-redeemable.  If one person can be helped from that mission than we have done our job.  Enjoy!

    Two weeks ago, I asserted in my blog that marijuana is not the gateway drug.  So then, I must propose a subsequent question: “What is the gateway drug?”

    Is it alcohol?  Is it heroin? Is it cocaine?  Bath salts? Spice?

    No.  The actual gateway drug, the... read on

    By Michael Welch

    In 2007, I opened a business to finance my addiction. My idea was to help addicts; prey on the vulnerable. I would find those who were desperate and capitalize on their need.

    Within one week I was pulling from a massive line of credit. At two weeks, the proper... read on
