Dear Parents,After Jesus’ resurrection and His appearance to the disciples, seven of the disciples returned to Galilee, near the Sea of Galilee where Jesus had called four of His disciples to be fishers of men.

Dear Parents,Jesus’ death and resurrection should not have surprised the disciples.

Fear, doubt, and confusion certainly overwhelmed their thoughts. Jesus, their Lord, was dead. He had been unjustly arrested, falsely accused, and severely beaten.

These next 5 weeks are insane for most of us, and it seems to be worse for those of us who call ourselves “Christians”. There are the regular activities that happen: school, work, sports, boy scouts, piano lessons, gymnastics, private tutors, etc. And then there are the extra special holiday events: work parties, classroom parties, hosting, decorating, caroling...

Jesus accomplished the plan God had been working out throughout the Old Testament to bring salvation to sinners, and it happened in such an unlikely wa...

Why Baptism Matters

I’m a Klingler. “Bell-ringer” in German. Part of the family, the Klingler family that is. If you have trusted in Jesus Christ, you are God’s son or daughter. Your last name is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God, the Triune God, the Christian God. You are God’s family. You bear the family name and receive the family inheritance. Jo...

As Christians, we have to filter the information we are receiving from the world around us through the person and work of Jesus Christ. In the information age, this task is harder than ever....
