By Jesse Becker Many people followed Jesus to varying degrees while He was on earth. There were the multitudes who were curious. There were the sick, blind, and lame who needed healing. There were some who Jesus specifically chose the follow Him so He could teach them and prepare them for ministry. And then there […]
By Carol Becker Luke 2:34-35 And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his Mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts […]
By Carol Becker Who was Mary Magdalene? We do not know much about her past. Luke 8:2 does mention Jesus had healed her from evil spirits and infirmities, but that is about all we know. What we do know is that was her past; it was her old life. It did not look anything like […]
By Carol Becker While writing the script for this Easter’s dramatization I knew I wanted to study the life of Thomas. You see, I think if most of us are honest, we see ourselves in Thomas maybe more than any other character in the resurrection story. What comes to mind when you hear Thomas’ name? […]
By John Mardirosian Eastland Baptist Church has enjoyed a great history. As Youth Pastor, I look at our teens and dream of all the great things God has planned for each of them and for our future here at Eastland. We are truly blessed with a great church and a great group of teenagers. I […]
By Jesse Becker A person's dying words are often some of the most important words a person will say. There are seven last words of Jesus recorded for us in scripture. Nothing Jesus ever said was trite or insignificant, but these seven sayings hold some very precious truths for us. Father, Forgive Them Luke 23:34 […]
By Pastor Dorrell It's amazing sometime how quickly life can change. We live in a face-paced and busy world, and the life we live can be very unpredictable. Circumstances can change, people can change, and of course we all know how quickly the weather can change. But, with sudden change often comes a sense of […]
By Pastor Troy Dorrell Over the course of my professional and vocational career, I have been a reader. I enjoy books and the learning process, and I have found that few things in life have benefitted me as much as my time in a good books and what I have extracted from them. During and […]
By Pastor Dorrell A number of years ago, we had a skunk problem at our house. Our home backs up to a field that (at that time) had a large population of the odoriferous creatures. Well, a number of them decided to take up residence under the deck in our back yard. We probably would […]
By Pastor Troy Dorrell The Bible teaches us that we are to direct our thinking toward those things that honor God and are good for us. Part of the reason for this is that our thinking takes us somewhere. When we direct and align our thinking with the Bible and wisdom, we find life and […]
By Jim Ramsey What a busy world I enjoy! (or maybe, endure!) I often jokingly tell our seniors: “Life sure gets a lot more simple at our ‘life stage doesn't it!'” –NOT! Truth is, at the age of 65+ it seems like my Daily Planner is more crowded than ever. I was thinking of an activity […]
    Proverbs 22:6 says: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. I believe that child training is the most obviously neglected element in raising children today. To be more precise, I believe intentional and purposeful training is the most neglected element. The [...]
For the past 21 years, it has been the joy of my life to be married to my wife, Teri. Together, the Lord has blessed us with seven children and years of wonderful memories and experiences. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate our marriage somewhere around an 11 or 12. However, [...]
By James Osborne of Fox News  (link to original article here) A Christian evangelical group that works to improve the lives of underprivileged children says it has been prohibited from conducting Bible study classes in public housing projects in Tulsa, Okla., potentially violating a Supreme Court ruling that upheld religious groups’ right to the use of public institutions.  For [...]
During the month of June, I will be writing a number of articles entitled “Hope for the Home,” a series intended to help strengthen relationships in our families. Today—more than ever—our homes are under fire and imperiled as never before. Our busy schedules, financial pressures and the loss of time together threaten to make our [...]
Outliers is a fascinating look into the reasons some people succeed and others do not. Malcolm Gladwell’s research debunks some popular notions about why people make it to the top of their professions and reinforces the simple principle of hard work. His main thesis is that success is primarily a function of privileged opportunity coupled [...]
And it came to pass, when the time was come, that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because [...]

It was a very special day that I will never [...]
It was a joy to have Bro. TJ Wilder and his family present the ministry of the Triple R Ranch in our evening services this past week.  Bro. Wilder just started the ministry for teenage boys and hopes to help young men get back on track with God.  The Ranch is a ministry of the [...]
This past Sunday, the Lord blessed our services in a great way, and the Lord used His Word to encourage many. Sunday morning, I preached from John chapter 11 on the resurrection of Lazarus. I focused on the first part of the story about Jesus tarrying after he heard the news of his friend’s illness. [...]

On Wednesday nights we will begin a character study of the 12 disciples.  We will be studying how God used these ordinary men to accomplish something extraordinary.  As we learn about this small group of men who turned the world upside down, I hope we will find encouragement, inspiration, and hope for doing the same.  We too can [...]
