Sunday July 28 - Do Not Go Beyond

Audio - Do Not Go Beyond 

The apostle Paul urged the church at Corinth not to go beyond the things that are written (1 Corinthians 4:6). When people go beyond Scripture they go into unauthorized territory and lead people astray from the truth.

Interactive Maps!

We have always had a schedule of stations and places where the Search program is broadcast in our newsletter.  A few months ago we asked the question: What if those locations were available on our website?  What if people could easily find the program on air while they were traveling or find a church to attend in a strange town?  How about a way to tell a family member or friend about the program or a church in their town?

The answer to all of these questions was an interactive map.  Brian and I have created, with the help of some other staff members here, two separate maps one detailing the locations of stations, broadcast and cable, that air the program and the other map showing the location of churches of Christ that support us.  Each map shows the location with the "pins" that you may already be familiar with from Google maps.  Each pin contains as much information as we have on file here, and we could use your help to keep that information updated.  (More on that later in the post)

On the TV station map (shown here) we have included the Station ID, Channel #, Market (area) the station covers and the air day/time.

We still have a lot of information to gather on many church locations.  Some locations will not have all of the information we wish to provide. 

Wherever possible; on the churches map we have included:
  • Congregation Name
  • Street Address
  • Phone Number
  • Worship Times for Sunday and Midweek
  • Website (with link) where Applicable
  • The Local Station That Airs the Search Program
We believe this tool will be a great help in both telling others about the reach that Search has in the U.S. and the World, and promoting the Gospel message to some that might not otherwise hear it.

As you may have already guessed this has been a monumental task.  There is a lot of information that has been compiled and placed into code and has taken a team effort to complete.  This is where we need your help.  If you attend one of the churches on the map, or watch the program on one of the stations that we have listed, and you notice that there is information that needs to be corrected, please let us know about it.  We have included a form on our website for you to send us that information.  We have noticed that some of the GPS coding is slightly off from actual location.  Sending us complete addresses is essential to getting the information corrected.  Also, we know that churches at times will change meeting times or even locations.  There is no way we can keep up with all this data without your help.  So please take some time to look over the new maps, tell your friends about it, and if necessary take a moment to help us keep up with the changing information.

Check it out now on our homepage just follow the link at the top: "Church and Station Map/TV Schedule."  The information page that brings up will give you links to both maps and also to a printable schedule for your use.

Thanks, and God Bless,

Sunday July 21 - The Bible Alone

Audio - The Bible Alone 

God has spoken to us, through His Word, a message for all time and all places. The Bible is the final authority and sufficient to teach us all we need to know in order to follow the Lord Jesus. We take the Bible for our authority, and the Bible alone.

Sunday July 14 - Holiness

Audio - Holiness  

Scripture encourages us to pursue holiness or the sanctification “without which no one will see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14). God is holy and desires His people to be holy as well, but many have lost sight of what it means to be holy.

Sunday July 7 - Life

Audio - Life

Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. God gave His Son so that we might have everlasting life. What is this everlasting life God has given to us through Jesus Christ? What does it mean to live?

Sunday June 30 - Conversion

Audio - Conversion

Salvation comes through conversion and leads to transformation. We must not be conformed to this world but be transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ. Conversion is the right kind of change Christians need in their lives.
