Thank you for visiting our website.  We are not publicized. That suggests  someone referred you.  We thank them as we thank you.

Our name comes from the little town in which we live: Orchard, Texas.  Our ministry, loosely called, is really a place for an itinerant preacher to deposit his thoughts.

Our book is published.  “God’s Gift to Humanity:  Hell or Reconciliation?” took over three years to complete.  It is a labor of love.  Remember:

Now concerning spiritual things, brothers, I don’t want you to be ignorant.  You know that when you were heathen , you were led away to those mute idols, however you might be led.  Therefore I make known to you that no man speaking by God’s Spirit says, “Jesus is accursed.” No one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” but by the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 12:1-3; WEB version)

We want to be clear, “Christ Jesus is Lord.”  He is Lord over all.  We cannot make the claim that “Jesus is Lord” without the power of the Holy Spirit.

The “traditions of men” are seemingly necessary, but are also problematic.  The “traditions of men” are the primary cause of denominational-ism.  Non-denominational congregations are as surely affected by the “traditions of men.”

Jim used to keep up with a “blog.”  He has the good intention of returning to it.  The last entry was a tribute to his Dad who died in October 2016.  The beginnings of a devotional entitled “Thoughts on Psalms...” are posted in the blog.  Please comment on the blog posts.  We pray for unity.

God bless us all.

He who testifies these things says, “Yes, I come quickly.”
Amen! Yes, come, Lord Jesus. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with all the saints. Amen. (Revelation 22:20-21; WEB)
