Hope! What a powerful little word!

In a world full of uncertainties, wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a sure and certain hope?

When the Bible speaks of “hope” it doesn’t mean mere wishful thinking but confident assurance.

Listen to these wonderful words from the Holy Scriptures:

So when God desired to show more convincingly to the heirs of the promise the unchangeable character of His purpose, He guaranteed it with an oath, so that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us.

Hebrews 6:17-18

What kindness and grace of God! He wanted to make sure that those who heard His promises understood that they were unchangeable, so not only did He make a promise; He swore an oath! We can rest our faith fully on the promises and oath of a God who cannot lie and hold fast to the hope He has set before us.

Our goal is to point you to the Person of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Word of God, the Bible, with the prayer that you may lay hold of His promises and find “joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope,” (Romans 15:13).

About me

While my desire is to focus your attention on Christ alone, I know that when I visit a website I want to know something about the writer(s). So let me tell you a little about myself.

By God’s grace, I was privileged to be raised in a home with loving parents who loved the Lord and sought to honour Him and serve Him. I was born in what is now Zimbabwe, but my parents moved to the USA when I was two years old. When I was seven years old, I put my trust in Christ alone for my salvation, and was born again.

When I was eight years old, my parents responded to the Lord’s leading in their lives and returned to Zimbabwe to serve the Lord as missionaries. We lived there for eleven years before returning to the States.

I decided to go to Bible college for a year to ease back into American culture, but ended up spending three years there and am very grateful for the help received at Emmaus Bible School (now Emmaus Bible College, Dubuque, IA).

Then I returned to New Jersey, and got a job working at a Christian bookstore where I worked for ten years. During that time, I was involved in a local church where I met my wife. We were married in 1986, and had two daughters. I also worked for two years for Moody Press as regional sales manager for the Northeast United States.

In 1998, we moved to Ireland to serve the Lord, first with an existing local church in Kilkenny, and then we helped to form a new assembly in the city of Waterford, where we have been serving since 2006. If you are interested in listening to some of our sermons, you can listen at Waterford Christian Assembly.
