Brittney Holifield Testimonial


Brittney Holifield Testimonial

When I made an emergency trip to Arkansas I made sure I dropped by a church close to our home. I made some great connections. On Monday I felt strongly led to drop by the Celebrate Recovery meeting. Time wise it was not the best decision, but spiritually it was well worth it. I was able to hear the testimony of Brittney Holifield. Her story is a story of redemption and transformation.

Brittney was addicted to marijuana, opiates, meth, and cigarettes. She also had a major sexual addiction, and extremely co-dependent. Along the way Brittney got pregnant and had an abortion. In the natural realm it would seem that there was no hope for her. She was quickly going down the path of total destruction.

Unplanned-the Movie 2

Unplanned-the Movie

Unplanned is the true story of Abby Johnson who became the youngest clinic director in the history of Planned Parenthood, then a life-changing experience turns her into an anti-abortion activist. Abby receives a Planned Parenthood director of the year award, but later is outspoken about the tactics of Planned Parenthood. What changed???????

“My story isn’t an easy one to hear. I think I probably ought to warn you of that up front.” Those words introduce us to Abby Johnson in Unplanned, which tells the true story of how this former Planned Parenthood clinic director changed her mind about abortion. Indeed, her story isn’t easy to watch. But it forces viewers to confront the reality of abortion from an unexpected viewpoint.

Any human being, whether they are pro-choice or pro-life, cannot watch this movie and not be touched by this true story. Only a person with a very cold heart will not be moved by this movie.

Don’t Abandon the Bible
Play the Flute Movie

In today’s society, many, if not most, young people have no interest in the Bible or the things of God. Many young people today actually have a disdain for the Bible. In their minds the Bible has no relevancy, it is an outdated book.

So what happens? Many church youth group leaders are abandoning the Bible. They have gone to food, entertainment, and fun to capture youth, and have to continually increase the food, entertainment, and fun to keep the youth involved. Yes, they have a large youth group, but their is no substance.

God is a Consuming Fire 1

God is a Consuming Fire

Hebrews 12:25-29 (ESV)
25  See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven.
26  At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”
27  This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain.
28  Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe,
29  for our God is a consuming fire.

What Fire Burns in You?

what fire burns in you

What Fire Burns in You?

For many it is the fire of sin and the fire of worldly passion. Seeking the things of this world with a fervency. If you are a Christian this is a question that you must absolutely ask yourself. You are obligated to ask yourself. If you don’t you will most likely be a carnal Christian. A Christian that seeks the pleasures of this world rather than seeking the fire of God to purge the world out of you.

SODC-Mother’s Day Breakfast

happy mothers day

Seattle Open Door Church Mother’s Day Breakfast 2018

At Seattle Open Door Church for Mother’s Day we had women from 6 years old to around 85 years old.
We had women from a variety of nationalities, socioeconomic levels, women who have been addicts for most of their life, even up to a few days ago, and women who have been abstinent for decades and decades and decades. Single moms, married, widowed, never had children, to women who have great great grandchildren.

mothers-precious-cooks-sodcAs a church we have as our vision to Love God, Love People, Love Life. We believe if you love God, you will love people, and if you love God and People you will love life. We like to say “Our Doors are Open to Whomsoever”. Everything we do as church is based upon these principles. sodc mother day

Throughout Seattle there are White churches, Black churches. Churches for the rich and famous and churches for the lowly. Churches for the oldies and churches for the millennials.  We don’t always do a good job but we do whatever we can to be a church for all people, saved or lost. It is our desire to have the rich and the homeless sitting on the same pew. The person who has never touched alcohol sitting next to the person who has is still struggling with addiction. Then we have fulfilled our vision. On Mother’s Day we got closer to fulfilling our goals.

Our next event will be a Men’s Retreat in June. One more event to have a chance to walk out our vision. It will be a time for Real People to Seek God and Love Life. No masks required. Then in August we will will be sponsoring young people to attend Youth Camp.

Champion Movie Testimonials-How Much is a Life Worth?

I have some questions for you. How much is a life saved from hell worth to you? How much is a changed/transformed life worth? How much is a hopeless life turned to being a hopeful life worth to you? How much are you worth? Do others have the same value as you? The right answer of course is ‘more than you can imagine’. But do you believe it? How much time, effort, money will you give towards seeing a life saved from hell, transformed, turned hopeful? Continue reading “Champion Movie Testimonials-How Much is a Life Worth?” »

Champion Movie Testimonials-One Person’s Story

The following story makes it worth all the effort and money spent by Seattle Open Door Church  to bring the Champion movie to a Seattle region theater. Because of our efforts the movie is going to show for at least one week. There is a reason why this had to occur. It wasn’t until after our last matinee showing of the movie did we learn why. Our Almighty God can arrange divine appointments.

Multitudes of DVD requests
Seattle Open Door Church
paid for two matinee showings of the premiere showing of the movie Champion. Sadly there was not the best attendance because of lack of marketing funds by us and the producer of the movie, good weather on a Seattle weekend, Joyce Meyer in town, and the Seattle International Movie Festival, we did not have the best turnout for the movie. BUT those who attended the movie were extremely thankful.
