Installing ChurchInfo Desktop Edition

Splash Screen

If you don’t know what ChurchInfo is, it’s a web based, open source, Church Management software originally developed to be deployed in Linux driven web servers so that the authorized users could access it from anywhere, any time. Not all churches are capable of handling a web server which is why last year I wrote a tutorial on installing ChurchInfo in a Windows PC and it’s receiving a wide array of attention ever since.  Though Installing in a PC is a fairly easy process, some of our readers ran into errors when they attempted the installation.

Sermon: The Christmas promise

Sermon: The Christmas promise

Introduction

An age-old tradition is to go wait in line to sit in Santa’s lap and tell him what you want for Christmas. You eagerly sit on his knee and listen attentively to what he says, hoping he will promise you the things you want. Sometimes, on Christmas morning, you find that you can’t always trust Santa. BUT, there was a promise given over 700 years before Christ that you can take to the bank.

Lesson series: Water baptism – Part 3 (Final)

Lesson series: Water baptism – Part 3 (Final)

1. What if I don’t get baptized? Will I lose my salvation?

A. Due to inadequate knowledge

A person who dies without getting baptized because of not fully knowing the Lord’s command to do so will not lose his place in heaven. It would be so similarly, if it is due to lack of time prior to death or other practical consideration.

Mark 16:16 “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned”.

Baptism is not a Pre condition for salvation but rather a product that should follow.
