I Can Do All Things...
Philippians 4:13 tells us that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. Most of us have heard this verse many times, but have you ever wondered why you seem powerless over some things in your life?
This is a question with which I believe most of us struggle at times. We hear this verse and think, "Okay, God will give me the strength. But what about those things I don't seem able to overcome? Is there something else I should be doing? What's wrong? Why can't I overcome?
Choose your connection speed above and join us as we worship God in song and then explore what it really means to do all things THROUGH Christ.

He Who Abides in Me...
Jesus said, "I am the vine, you are the brances. He who abides in me, and I in him, will bear much fruit; for without me you can do nothing."
When we realize that abiding in Christ includes going where he is going and doing what he is doing, and once we begin abiding daily in the Vine, bearing fruit becomes inevidable.
The heart of Jesus is the ministry of reconciliation, bringing man back into fellowship with God. Our ministry therefore is a ministry of reconciliation, proclaiming Jesus everywhere people are, including a 3-D virtual reality world where many people spend every available moment.
Many of the lost in this world will never step foot in a church, and are not out where traditional evangelism reaches. Many of the Christians who frequent this world are unable to physically function and attend a local church.
That's why it's crucial that we follow Jesus where these people are, bringing the Gospel to the lost, and fellowship with believers to the saved.
Currently there are more than 1,082,660+ people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 20,000 to 60,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please partner with us today! Ask God what he would have you do as a one-time gift to help cover the server upgrade, and as a monthly partner to help cover the monthly costs.
Additionally, you can ask us to send information about our ministry in the virtual world to your pastor, ministry, or Christian business. When they catch the vision and see what a large and virtually unreached mission field the virtual world is, they will be given the chance to play a part in this powerful outreach. Visit here to request information sent to your church, ministry, or Christian business.

Prayer Requests & Praise Reports
Healing from Cancer Candie asks us to pray for her sister, Felicia, who is starting chemotherapy. Another sister asked us to pray for an unnamed friend who was in remission for throat cancer, but it has returned. The name of Jesus is above the name of cancer!
Employment Donnad writes, "Please pray that i find a job soon, a good job, and enough money to get me and my son a good car for we don't have one. Please pray that the hate my brother has in his heart for me will go away... Please help my dad and brothers see that losing my job wasn't my fault, please pray they find it in their heart to speak to me again. Oh God in heaven please look out for me and my child during these hard times, please help me to make the correct decisions on [where to live]... Please God help me through my hard times... In Jesus Christ's name I pray, Amen."
Health Ahleah asked us to pray for her health, and the possibility of cancer. Please continue to pray for her complete healing.
Pray For Us! Please pray that God will continue to move through this ministry in an even greater measure. Without your prayers, our labor will not have much effect. But when the work of the ministry is backed by prayer, great things will happen!
