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.

The response of the attendees of the movie was amazing. Continue reading “Champion Movie Testimonials-People Sharing” »

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.

Let’s Get Real-The TRUTH Sets You Free

let's get real-jesus is the truthLet’s Get Real

One of my ‘trademarks’ in the past is that whenever I would preach I would start out almost always saying ‘Let’s get real’. Not a bad slogan to have. Let’s get real about the TRUTH.

Know the TRUTH and the TRUTH Will Set You Free
John 8:31-32
31  Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings.
32  And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

Jesus-The Power of Humility

jesus power of humilityJesus-The Power of Humility

During this Christmas season as we look at the story of the birth of Christ, we should be overwhelmed by the humbleness of Jesus-the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. As we look at the life of Christ from His birth to His death we see a humble servant. It should become clear that Christ manifested His power through humbleness. There truly is power through humility. There is actually salvation from sin and the reward of heaven for those who humble themselves before God and receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Let’s look at Jesus humbleness.

Philippians 2:5-8
5  Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,
6  who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped,
7  but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.
8  Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

Jesus emptied Himself taking on the form of a baby. That is humbleness. King of King comes to earth as a baby. Continue reading “Jesus-The Power of Humility” »

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ 3

confess and believe jesusBelieve on the Lord Jesus Christ

Acts 16:30-31
30  and after he brought them out, he said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
31  They said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”

Anyone who has heard the preaching of the Gospel has heard that you must believe in Jesus Christ to have eternal life. You must accept Jesus into your life. You must be born again. You must confess Jesus as Lord and believe He was raised from the dead. Continue reading “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ” »
