Secure Your Boat


Pastor Jason Paul continues in his series called “Hebrews: The Completed Picture.” In today’s episode, Jason unpacks Hebrews 2:1-4 in a message titled “Secure your boat.” There are times in our lives where we can go through still waters. Every boat must dock at some point and get secured, so it does not drift back out into the waters.

Our lives can act just like a boat. When the waters get rough, and you come to shore, where do you secure your boat?

Find out which firm foundation you can secure your boat on the Abiding in the Faith podcast this weekend.

The Relational Church

As I entered the church building this Sunday Morning, I made my way to get a cup of coffee. It is not very often that I make it to the service fifteen minutes early and go alone. As I was pouring a cup, I am greeted by others in the area, and as I was adding sugar to my cup, I noticed some of the young high school kids gathered around visiting with each other. Everyone was relational with each other.

As I made my way to my seat and sat down, the lights dimmed, and the music started. At that moment, I was transported back in time before I was married with children and was reminded of when I attended services by myself. The church was a place where I would go when life was rough. It was not the church building itself but the community of believers that were within its walls.

Even though I was a Christian since the age of twelve and grew up knowing about Jesus Christ, I was still a sinful person who was disobedient towards God. I came to the church as a sinful, broken man searching for God I learned about so long ago. As I was worshiping and praying with others with tears in my eyes, the congregation around me would approach me and began to build relationships with me. These people accepted me for who I was and not for the sins that I committed.

As time went on, I built more relationships with others and learned to be obedient to Jesus Christ again. You see, the church is a place where everyone can go if they are lost and are searching for God. God is a relational God and wants to be in a relationship with you. That is why God sent his Son Jesus to earth, so that if we believe with our heart and confess that he is Lord, then we can be in a relationship with God. As Christians in the church, we need to follow Jesus’s example and be relational. We read of many instances within the pages of Scripture where Jesus was forming relationships with others around him.

I know some people have been hurt and have not been accepted by those within the church. Unfortunately, some view the sin and not the person. But to be in a relationship with God is to accept Jesus Christ and turn away from your sin and follow him. The key is the relationship with Jesus Christ and to have relationships with others.

Fast forward to the present, and I am still a sinner who is saved by grace. Even though times have changed, the church has not. It is still a place filled with people who are in a relationship with Jesus and with each other. It is a place I can still go, be accepted, and build relationships. You can experience the same. Just give it a try. Even if it is for the first time or the 100th time, you can go to church and begin forming a relationship with God and others.

Portrait of Faith: A Ministry Moment


In this Ministry Moment, Pastor Jason Paul looks at Galatians 3:1-5. Forgeries and Fake news are all around us. How do we determine what is real? The apostle Paul tells the Galatians how to do it, and we can learn from it. 


Abiding in His Presence


Pastor Jason Paul continues in his series called “Abiding in the Faith”. In this episode, Pastor and Bible teacher Jason Paul speaks on Psalm 91. Abiding in God’s presence is to allow God to be your protection. Tune in to find out more. 



We all love to hear origin stories. Everything from cultures to nations, from superheroes to businesses, and even the origin of man has origin stories. The Abiding in the Faith podcast has an origin that began with a thought which became a reality.

When I was in seminary, I was taking a class on teaching and preaching. One of the assignments in the course was for us to write a paper on how we, as young pastors, will create opportunities to get experience teaching and preaching. At the time, I was beginning to listen to podcasts of preachers that have impacted my Christian walk over time. One of the thoughts that I had was to create a Bible teaching podcast to create an opportunity to preach the gospel.  

During this same season of my life, I was beginning to write a book about walking with God and what it meant to follow God closely. There are times in our Christian walk where we are close to God, walking right beside him, and other times where we feel like God is not close to us. We read the stories in the Bible of how Moses, Noah, and Enoch walked with God. These are ordinary men, each with faults, but all who had a close relationship with God and walked alongside him.  Each one walked in a manner that was pleasing to the Lord. Apostle Paul wrote in Colossians 1:10 that as Christians, we need “to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.”

As I am learning how to walk with God closer, I uncover God’s truth within the Bible that I want to share with others. So why not create a podcast to teach God’s word as I allow God’s word to teach me. The Abiding in the Faith Podcast went through different name changes before the podcast was launched. I considered walking in a manner and walking in the faith before I decided to name the podcast abiding in the faith. To abide means to remain. As we walk with Christ, we need to remain in him, so the podcast was formed.

I hope, and prayer is that this podcast can be informative and positive. A place where a Christian can listen and gain insight on walking with Christ in a manner worthy of the Lord and a place where the non-believer can learn about who Jesus Christ is.

Thank you to everyone who had a profound effect on my Christian life over the years, especially Jesus Christ, who, without him as my Lord and personal savior, would none of this be possible.

By listening to the Abiding in the Faith podcast, I hope that you will be blessed and challenged in your Christian walk.

Pastor Jason Paul.
