If you are visiting the New Piney Grove Baptist Church's website for the very first time, it is not by chance, accident or mistake. You saw the Pastor's Blog and were interested in what he had to say.
Well, if you are seeking a worship environment where you can learn and have your faith developed, NPGBC might be just for you. We have some of God's best teachers and our main core value is Christian Education.
If you are seeking salvation and don't understand what being "saved" means, NPGBC is the place for you. You don't even have to join our church, but we would love to have you as a member of our church family.

I was recently introduced to the term "faith development," which really tells the purpose of what is done when one faithfully attends Sunday school and Bible study.
Romans 10:17 tells us that no one can obtain faith without hearing the Word of God. Within the context of this passage, its believing what you hear.
In a society where we believe everything but the Word of God, it is no wonder that a law can get passed that violates it. But rest assured, God will judge.

The Governor of the State of Georgia recently vetoed a bill that was passed by the House of Representatives and approved by the Senate, to protect ministers and churches from being forced to violate their religious consciences.
Many religious organizations worked hard, encouraging their members to write their representatives and senators, to get the bill passed. It was obvious that the will of the majority of Georgians was that this bill be passed into law.
But Governor Deal made the decision to go against the will of the people. This is not democracy.
The same thing happened in California, when a referendum on the ballot against same-sex marriages was overwhelmingly passed. But the Supreme Court of California ruled that it was discrimination. This is not democracy.
In spite of all this, nothing changed, because God's Word does not change. Ultimately, God will judge.
The problem is that we think we live in a democratic society. We have a system that is supposed to allow people of this country to make choices. But it appears that this is not the case for those who follow Jesus. The majority of the people on Palm Sunday who shouted "Hosanna!", also shouted "Crucify Him!".

March is an everything month for me:
- My birthday is the 8th
- The "love of my life" and "wind beneath my wings," birthday is the 13th
- Our anniversary is the 25th
- and it's the beginning of fishing season!
Needless to say, March is special for me.
When I was a young boy, my Dad would always buy me a kite, so I miss him the most this time of year. But March is also the season of change. So it also reminds me of the wonder of our LORD. He not only has the power to change the deadness of winter into the life of spring, but He has the power to change me from a no account sinner into a vessel He can use.
