Our Current Study:
The Book of Mark
Nathan Rittenhouse is coming to be with us for a very special time as we renew our faith in the Lord Jesus.
Nathan comes to us from the Pocahontas congregation in West Virginia. He is an itinerant speaker with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. He graduated from Bridgewater College before attending the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics in England. He holds an M.Div. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.
He grew up in an active church and Christian family and developed an enthusiasm for Christ that has intensified with his academic studies.
Nathan spent the last three years traveling and speaking in universities throughout New England and is currently focusing on the Mid-Atlantic region.
I believe that God is calling us in these days to realize the need for a deeper faith in our good Shepherd as we face the days ahead. Come walk with us as we rediscover His love, His mercy, and His call upon our lives. Come bring your family, your friends and your neighbors.
In His Service,
If My people, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins and heal their land. II Chronicles 7:14

...Here's An Answer!
(Below we have the questions that have been submitted to us and have prayerfully considered and answered them. If you have further questions, please feel free to submit those and we will get the answer posted. God bless.)
Q: Why was the church created?
A: The church as a building, was something that has been around since the Old Testament times. It was early, in the life of the Hebrews, that God established the Tabernacle for worship. In the New Testament, God had the Temple as it was built, destroyed and rebuilt. Even today, there are “churches” where many can go and worship God.
However, the answer does not end there. It goes deeper. In Acts 7:48, Stephen, during his court hearing, says that God does not dwell in Temples made with hands. Stephen hits on the very powerful truth of the indwelling of the Spirit on believers. Our bodies are the Temple of the Holy Ghost (1 Corinthians 6:19). This was how God wanted it from the beginning.
In the Garden of Eden, God communed with Adam and Eve directly. He wanted to be part of their lives. He wanted to walk with them and talk with them. However, because of sin, mankind and God had to be separated. God cannot and will not abide sin. Therefore, the Tabernacle, which clearly separates God from mankind was established. In the New Testament, when Jesus died on the cross, the Temple Veil was torn in two and the way was made for all of us to come back to God.
While we are on this earth, we are still in the flesh. We are not perfect. Therefore, we are not able to walk with God exactly as Adam and Eve did. However, the Holy Spirit in us does indwell us. It is because of this indwelling that we are able to pray and talk with God. The real question is, do we live as though we are indwelt by the Spirit of God, or do we live as though we are still in the world?
As we live our lives, it should be one that reflects a growing unity with God. That means all we do, say, think, believe, support, whatever, is now surrendered to God. Will we be perfect? No. But by God’s grace, we will not grieve the Holy Spirit because we willingly ignore His leading and guidance (Ephesians 4:30). - Jonathan
