Welcome 

Welcome members and visitors.  We are pleased that you have looked in on our web-site.

Did you know that Jesus told his disciples that it was "easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven;"  really?  Well yes and he also said that though, not with man but with God, all things are possible.  You can find that in the 18th chapter of the Gospel according to Luke.  If you are interested in the conclusion, or as Paul Harvey used to say, "the rest of the story" you will want to read the 19th chapter.

What you find there shouldn't really surprise you very much.  If God is willing to save a rich King like David he can surely manage salvation for a rich sinner anywhere in the world and at any time.  I expect that the traitorous, cheating tax collector who was the subject of this story was greatly surprised when salvation was declared to have been granted to his household.

this the sort of thing that we often talk about at Okeechobee Christian Church.  Members, bring a guest; visitors to this web site, don't wait to be asked, just come and join us.  Services are at 10:30 am on Sunday morning .  We also have a 7:00 evening prayer and bible study time on Wednesday evening.  The  Wednesday evening gathering is preceded by a shared meal and time of fellowship at 6:00 pm.

IN THE BEGINNING GOD

"In the beginning God;" the first four words of the book of Genesis; profoundly different from current thinking; an idea which has been pushed to the side in the secular world of the big bang and Darwinian evolution.  Why?

The answer to that question lies in the next six words: "created the heavens and the earth." Why, you might ask yourself, is that idea so offensive.  Listen to the alternative.

Nothing came together from nowhere in particular and for no reason in particular in such quantities that all of the stars and planets of the universe (and other residual bodies, gas clouds, etc.) were formed when it became compacted into a singularity and exploded - BANG.

With this bang, all of what had previously been nothing became energy which later cooled and became matter; which gathered together in smaller quantities in various places as stars and planets and such.  All of this for no reason at all.

Ask yourself this question.  What else, in your experience, has ever happened for no reason at all?

On Saturday evening June the first at 7:00 PM, we will begin a series talking about these mysteries from a Christian perspective.  In the meantime, just remember that the same God whose spirit hovered over the waters is working still.
