Resolutions For the Faith

July 7, 2007 by Paul Chappell

This upcoming Sunday Terrie and I will celebrate our 21st anniversary at Lancaster Baptist Church. As I look back at the great work that God has done through the ministry here, I am so thankful just to be a part. To the glory of God we have seen souls saved, lives changed, and miracles take place here at Lancaster Baptist.

chappell-family-1987Anniversaries are great times to make resolutions and renew our commitments. Although we have seen much accomplished for the faith in twenty-one short years, the world is moving away from truth just as quickly. And while this Sunday will be a time of reminiscing and celebrating, I stand resolved in my purpose and commitment to continue sharing the faith of the Gospel.

This past Sunday night I preached a message to our church family entitled, “Resolutions for the Faith”. Here are the main thoughts. I hope they will be a challenge to you today.
