Finding Your Church Home!
The Heart of The Jabez Foundation Ministries of Apple Valley California is to stir up your Faith through the Word of God!
It goes with out saying that every church believer should have a Church home where they attend regularly. If you are not part of such a fellowship, the following advice will be invaluable to your search! In a busy world where life hands us challenges we need to stay grounded in our Faith! Maybe you've just lived daily with no example of what Christ expects of you as a believer. Well, it just might be time to mold your life as the Word of God directs! Let The Jabez Foundation Ministries direct you through this process!
1~ Look for a Church Prayerfully Remember Proverbs 3:6
In all your ways acknowledge Him & He shall direct your path.'
2~ Search for Prospects You might look for a listing in the Newspaper or Yellow Pages!
A visit or two is helpful, but there is no way to fully evaluate a church without attending most services for a Month or so.
3~ Keep in mind that you are Looking for a Fellowship of Believers Remember a Church is not a building, nor is it merrely a Ministry, it is the Body of Christ! So seek people who Love the Lord & each other.
4~ Look for a Church that Preaches the Word of God Seek the Church that has sound doctrine!
Much of this can be discovered by Observation! For Clarity speak with the Pastor or Leadership.
5~ Look for a Church that has Good Character Seek a loving peacefully stable church with a Pastor devoted to godliness, prayer,& the Word.
6~ Look for a Church that will Draw you Closer to Christ You need a Church that cares about you who will meet your Spiritual Needs --that will inspire you to Grow In Christ.
7~ Look for a Church where You Can become Committed In many ways, your relationship with the Church is similar to a marriage --you can't get more out of it then what you put into it! Get involved & submit yourselves to God & each other--where they both will encourage you & hold you accountable.
8~ Seek for that Fellowship that is Attempting to Reach Lost Souls Find a Fellowship that that seeks to bring lives to Christ, both in the Community & on foreign Mission Fields. This will be a healthy enviroment in which to grow!
9~ Be ready to Accept the Individuality of the Church Always remember a Church is a combination of what it's people are. A church can never rise up above what it's individual members are! The Church is like a potluck dinner! What will you bring to the table of Christ?
10~ Look for a Church with Reasonable Expectations In every Church you will find some people who are wonderful and some who simply are not. Also, in every Church you will find some things that are done well, & others that are not. Don't worry about finding the perfect Pastor, either. Trust me they are all human and make mistakes. There are many good Churches in your community! Let Jesus be the Author & Finisher of Your Faith!

The Jabez Foundation Ministries
of Apple Valley California~
I Chronicles 4:9-10 in which reads, "And Jabez was more honorable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.
Is this not the Desire of Your Heart? This truly is the desire of The Jabez Foundation Ministries! As the Founder I would say there is no more joy than being blessed by our Heavenly Father so that our Coast can be enlarged as directed so that we as a Church may be able to truly follow Matthew 28:19 &20. It reads: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen!" Isn't it wonderful to know that Jesus is with us all the way? He will give us the strength, courage, wisdom & knowledge to do what He requires as we are obedient to his word and direction! Infact, isn't it wonderful to have our hearts and minds truly know that, " With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible?" The Jabez Foundation Ministries desire is to assist you in getting your faith where Christ desires our hearts to be! Let us be of service to you right where you are!
