Jesus said, “It is finished.” John 19:30 When you look at the life of Jesus from a human standpoint, you might conclude that his life was a failure. From a purely human standpoint he didn’t do much.

The teams from Burns and from all over the southeast (Tennessee, Missouri, Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas) knocked on over 2,500 doors. The seed of God’s word has been planted all over, and we know that as we and […]

It’s time for our new summer classes at Burns. If you’re not involved in Sunday School — now is a great time to jump back in!
