Welcome to First Assembly, a relevant, exciting church striving to be living proof of an empty tomb. Our mission is to serve, serve the Lord Jesus Christ, His church and those searching for the meaning and purpose of life. You are cordially invited to celebrate with us the victory made possible through the cross as we defend the truth together and provoke this world to jealously.
We all are born with certain character traits due to our genetic makeup. I have been told by more than one source, that the older I get, the more like my dad I become. We also were all born with certain character traits because of the Adamic nature we inherited. You and I were born into this world needy, dependent and selfish. It’s simply the truth, but once faith in Christ takes root in our heart things begin to change. God’s grace empowers change. The Holy Spirit via His presence, power and truth then begins to mold our character, reprogram our internal wiring and conform us into the image of Christ. This process is ongoing as God changes us on the inside so that He can use us on the outside. The process of growing into that image requires testing. No one is immune nor should we want to be because testing is God’s way of bringing us into our destiny. With Joseph, the dream he was carrying at 17 could not be supported by his character. But through a season of testing, God changed his character so that when he entered the palace, he was ready. God too, has a dream for us, but the destiny of that dream depends on our character. Let us pray today, “Lord, mold me into your image so that the dream you have for me will become my destiny.”
