We are always excited to have guests come and be a part of everything that is taking place at the Church. We want you to feel comfortable as our guest and all we ask is that we might have an opportunity to serve you, and help with any needs you may have. We don’t expect you to dress a certain way, or feel out of place whether you have been in Church most of your life, or never been at all, you are welcome here!
Please take a minute and browse our site where you can find our service times, meet our staff, and see all of our upcoming events. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to email myself, and I will get back with you right away. Thank you again for your interest in Freedom.
In His service,
Pastor Kris Theobald
that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, (Philippians 3:10
Friends how many of you honestly can say your desire is, “that I may know him.” How much time have you spent in His word so that you may know him? How much time have you spent in prayer so that you may know him? How important is going to church to worship so that you may know him? How important is making disciples and sharing the gospel so others may know him? We fill our minds and our lives with so much junk, so much useless information, so much foolishness, but Paul said he gave up everything he had in this world so that he “may know him!” Friends if what your chasing after isn’t Jesus, I can promise it might make you rich, it might make you famous, it might make you comfortable, but it won’t make you godly and it won’t stand eternally. Church it’s time we stop and really think about what we value. I see too many Christians that are enamored with the world. We are a nation of biblical illiterates and faithless followers because we don’t desire to put forth the effort, “so we may know him.” Only you can change that. Decide today to seek The Lord while he may be found!

Lifting up his eyes, then, and seeing that a large crowd was coming toward him, Jesus said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, so that these people may eat?”
He said this to test him, for he himself knew what he would do. (John 6:5-6)
The miraculous feeding of the 5,000 is recorded in all four of the Gospels. Some scholars estimate that when you account for women and children it could have been as much as 25,000 gathered together that evening looking for food. And as Jesus looks at such a great number of people, he takes the impossible question to Philip, not because he was at a loss for answers, but to see if Philip recognized the answer was standing before him.
We will all encounter situations in life that have no earthly answer, no humanly possibility of resolving it. It was Thomas Jefferson who painstakingly went through the bible and cut out every single miracle of Christ with a razor blade, and then pasted the text back together without them. He could not believe that Jesus was more than just a good moral teacher, and the miraculous things were simply added by his followers. He believed in a human Jesus, but not a divine one.
Often we act in the same way as Jefferson. We are put in situations because just like Philip, God wants us to look into our hearts and see if we really trust him. Do we really believe that “with God all things are possible to him that believes.” Sure there was no way they could buy enough food for all those people. It’s ridiculous to think two loaves of bread and five fish could make enough meals for them. But wait. Is that not the Christ standing there? Is he not God in the flesh? Did he not heal the lame, cause the blind to see, and raise the dead? Is this now too much for him? Jesus knew what he would do, and friend he knows what he can do for you. Will you trust him? Will you exercise faith? Think about these verses when it seems you’re not getting answers to the things you ask…
“And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief.” (Matthew 13:58)
“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.” (James 1:6)
