Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.
We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to be fully devoted to Jesus by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We show God’s love and concern for our fellow man at every opportunity. Through works of charity and opening our doors to listen and love, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.

Our Lord's disciples often must have felt that they were not too bright when they had to time after time have Jesus explain his parables to them.
They had a hard time understanding this parable that we read today.
Luke 8:9 “And his disciples asked him, saying What might this parable be?”
Many times the disciples had problems understanding what the meaning was of our Lord's parables as he taught those that crowded about Him and this was one of those times. After they asked Him what this parable of the sower was about He explained it to them.
He told them that the seed in the story was the word of God and the four soil types are four types of people that hear it.
The first soil type was that of the wayside or path. The seed doesn't penetrate and the birds take it away. These are the hearers of God's word that never really listen to it or take it into their hearts so it is never able to work in them.
The second type was the stony soil, where the seed germinates, but has no root and so soon withers and dies. This type of hearer is effected by the word at first, but in adversity loses interest and soon drifts away without bearing any fruit either.
The third soil type is the thorny soil. The ground itself is good, but the weeds choke the plant and don't let them produce fruit as they should. This is the type of hearer who really takes the word to heart, but lets the cares and worries of the world, (and the concern for earthly riches), hinder their usefulness to the Church and to the spread of God's kingdom.
The fourth soil is the good soil that produces the good crop. These are the hearers that, not only take the word to heart, but by virtue of God's grace working in them, are able to “bring forth fruit with patience”. This “good soil” is able to bring others to the saving love of God by helping to grow His Church.
We should ask God in prayer daily to make each of us that “good soil”.
That we may show growth in His love and service.
That we may bring forth fruit to the glory of our God.
