We are attending the annual conference of our fellowship of churches, the General Association of Regular Baptists on the campus of Faith Baptist Bible College in Ankeny, Iowa. Last night Dan and Wes were a part of the teen sessions.
John Greening and Ken Floyd immediately inquired about our girls Kentucky Tour when they saw us, even though they were busy with preparations for the conference. There was a warm spirit of fellowship on the campus of Faith Baptist Bible College last night.
I sat with pastor and Mrs. Pyne, and Joe and Nancy Miller. After a sweet time of worship in prayer and music, John Greening, the National Representative of the GARBC preached a powerful message on the cross from Hebrews 2:10-18. To me, this was the highlight of his message:
“We are floating facedown in the cesspool of our own sin. The life is gone from us. Jesus, in his humanity, wades into the cesspool of our depravity and sacrifices himself to rescue us. He pulls us to shore, puts his mouth on our lips and breathes his life into our dead spirit. Then he begins the process of washing us from our sin.” -John Greening
-Pastor Kenneth L. Pierpont
