Welcome to Church of God

     This website has been designed to assist you in learning and better understanding the gospel of Jesus Christ.  He taught the one true gospel – the gospel of the coming Kingdom of God. This gospel, taught by Jesus Christ, is a message about God’s exhilarating purpose for creating the human race in the first place - that of expanding His family and making it possible for mankind to inherit eternal life as a member of that family. Salvation is a personal issue, between a man or woman and God (Philippians 2:12).

     Through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, we can understand the Scriptures (1Corinthians 2:10-16). And as the Bible is the Word of God in print, as we read, we hear what He has to say about His Church.  Jesus continues to this day to build His Church (Matthew 16:18), as the Temple of the Lord is not yet complete. In the New Testament, His church is named, "Church of God" for it is a spiritual organism and not an organization of men.  It is the Body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the Head. Therefore, we are all instructed to grow into the grace and knowledge of our Savior – Jesus Christ (2Peter3:18).

The Islamic State’s downfall has left a power vacuum in Syria. Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Russia and Israel are all very interested in who fills that power vacuum in the country.

Currently it is Iran who is best positioned in the country and has the deepest relationship with the Assad regime in Syria. Turkey is very much anti-Assad and is most concerned that Syrian Kurds could fuel an uprising of the Kurds in Turkey. The more Turkey and Iran are focused on competing for power in Syria, the less focused they are on competing with Russia. Putin has polite relations with Turkey and an even stronger partnership with Iran, but Middle East relationships are a short-lived relationship that change very quickly.

Israel has been most concerned about Syria. On February 10th, an Iranian drone crossed into Israeli territory and was shot down. Israel responded to the Iranian intrusion by dispatching fighter jets to attack targets in Syria, including the Tiyas air base, near Palmyra, where the Iranian drone apparently originated from. Syrian anti-air systems reacted, striking an Israeli F-16, which crashed after making it back to Israeli territory. This pressured Israel to smash eight Syrian targets and four Iranian positions. Russia and America are hoping that tensions between Iran and Israel do not escalated into a war between these nations. Everyone in the region is fixated on the question, who will gain the upper hand in Syria?

Israel is watching Iran’s involvement in Syria very closely. It is one thing for an Iranian proxy like Hezbollah, with its reduced number of fighters, to fire rockets at Israel from Lebanon. But when Iran begins to station missiles, massing ground forces and placing aircraft in Syria, just across the Israeli border, using Syria as a base of Iranian operations, this amounts to a deadly menace to Israel...

God's Love of Covenant
- Sermon Series

      Guest Speaker: Steven LeBlanc of COG-eim
"A covenant is a sacred agreement between God and a person or group of people. God sets specific conditions, and He promises to bless us as we obey those conditions. When we choose not to keep covenants, we cannot receive the blessings, and in some instances we suffer a penalty as a consequence of our disobedience."
