Welcome Back Rev. Paul Oxley Jr.! I am thrilled beyond words to welcome back to ECF’s pulpit my “Double Brother” Paul Oxley Jr. We are brothers in the flesh of the same mother, and we are brothers of the “Spirit.” The same spirit that raised Christ from the dead – dwells in both of us! Since boyhood he has been my “Buzz” my mentor and my friend. Paul is an Academician, a Scholar, an Educator, a Minister and one of his joys a Missionary! Other than our Mother, “Buzz” has showed me and as increased my hunger to know Jesus! As Paul preaches and teaches this morning – we will see Jesus! AMEN!!! ~David Oxley
“BROKENESS = Usefulness” is our new sermon series. There is the saying “If it is not broke – don’t fix it.” The Kingdom of God is a contradiction. For example; as Christians, We live to die. We die to live. In the Kingdom of God, “If it is broken, it can be used.” In this series, we will examine the contrasts of “Broken Seed – Bears Much Fruit,” Next Sunday will be Part 4 “Willing To Be Broken” We will examine Jeremiah and The Potter’s House. Let’s continue to grow as we explore “BROKENNESS = Usefulness!”
“GROWTH” is our word for 2013. “GROWTH” is the acronym for “G” Grace, “R” Righteousness, “O” Others, “W” Worship Warfare, “T” Truth, and “H” Health(y). Ephesians 4:15 is the cornerstone by “speaking the truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things, which is the Head – even Christ!”
