Loren Seibold & John McLarty | 31 August 2022 Melchizedek is one of the most mysterious figures in the Bible. He appears in person only once— in Genesis 14—but is referred to again in Psalm 110 and at length in Hebrews 7. But who was Melchizedek? All we know from Genesis is that he is […]

29 August 2022 | Everything we do in congregational worship is a communal embodiment of what we believe, and a rehearsal of who we are becoming.

15 May 2022 | Seventh-day Adventism arose in the aftermath of the Great Disappointment of 1844. Despite numerous “proofs” culled from Scripture, used confidently to pinpoint the date of the second advent to October 22, 1844, Christ did not return.
