Statement of Faith

I realized my faith in Christ at an early age after having being taught primarily by my grandmother to look to  Christ for my salvation and to Him alone. As I grew in to a young man and began to experience life, there has certainly been a renewal and strengthening of faith.


To illustrate His grace and mercy, I began to draw close to Him when at the age of seven I was diagnosed as having dyslexia. Struggling to learn to read while being teased by peers and having various adults label me; I took the lead from my Grandmother and her strength and faith in Christ. I began to lean on Christ for strength. I learned that if I put my trust in Him and believed, things would progress according to His will. That knowledge became enough for me. I eventually earned Bachelors and Masters Degrees.


God drew my heart back to Him after succumbing to temptations in college. The “child-like” character of my faith waned as I launched into life on my own. God was patient and merciful to me. He simply waited for me to recall his mercies and return my absolute faith to Him. From that point onward I have had the good fortune to be surrounded by friends strong in the body of Christ, my pastor and my family who serve as mentors, teachers and examples of good Christians. Through these people I have learn the importance of embracing Christ with both my heart and my mind.


I continue to grow in Christ and my faith. I devote myself continually to God’s Word and prayer.

Good Days & Great Days

There are 2 types of days in one’s life good days and great days, every morning one wakes up is a good day. As I sit here this morning in Chicago overlooking the river walk sipping my premium coffee that I paid way too much for, it dawns on me that this is a great day. When I was a young man and we would be in church on a Sunday morning, and the old folks used to think god for waking up that morning they would always say it was a good day. It was very hard for a young man with no true life experience to understand why just waking up would make it a good day.

After 40+ years of living life it dawns on me, every morning you wake up is a good day. You make a personal choice to allow negativity into your day and make it a bad day. But if we really take time to reflect on our life that every day we wake up is a good day. Then maybe we should truly concentrate on enjoying the few great days that come into our life. Quiet mornings with the family, time at children’s baseball games, days where your mind is clear and we truly realize we are blessed to be here with the people we truly love, and all the other truly great days we overlooked because we are always looking over our shoulder waiting to open the door to negativity. A point of thought.
