Welcome to the house of the Lord! We are often told that faith is a gift and we have come to think that perhaps we have not received that gift. While faith is a gift, faith is a gift meant to be used. Author Mark Batterson compares faith to dominos. A domino is capable of knocking over another domino that is one-and-a-half times its size. So a two-inch domino can topple a three-inch domino. A three-inch domino can topple a four-and-a-half-inch domino, and so on.

Thus, a chain reaction of ever-increasing dominoes could knock over the Empire State Building.

There are two types of progression: linear and geometric. Linear progression is two plus two equals four. Geometric progression is compound doubling; two times two equals four. If you take thirty linear steps, you're ninety feet from where you started. But if you take thirty geometric steps, you’ve circled the earth twenty-six times!

Faith isn’t linear. Faith is geometric. Every decision we make, every step of faith we take, has a chain reaction. And those chain reactions set off a thousand chain reactions of which we cannot even comprehend.

We have all been given the gift of faith — it’s how we use it that counts! We are glad you are here today and invite you to become a part of this household of faith. Please see the minister or one of the elders if you have any questions about our congregation.
