Welcome to Touching Lives

To touch a life is to ultimately impact another with the profound goodness of God’s truth. It is the breath of vitality that can shift a soul to new hope. An opportunity lit by the grace of God to come alongside and speak life to them and with them.

We know the impact Jesus Christ can have on a life is truly remarkable. When the love of Christ breaks through troubled hearts and lives, it can no longer remain the same. It is moved. Transformed. Restored.

At Touching Lives, we have made a deep commitment to reach the lost, the broken, the spiritually blind, and all who thirst for God’s truth and goodness. We have a passion to propel new life into your faith, inspire hope for the hopeless, and to reach those who seem too far. We know that all things are possible with God, and no soul is beyond God’s reach–so we press on for His glory.

With our world changing rapidly, we are re-energized and committed to touching the lives of the lost and enriching the faith of the found.

We encourage you to join and support us in the profound joy of bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the world until we meet Him face to face. Come alongside us with your prayer and financial support–providing life-changing opportunities to reach, touch, and impact the world for Jesus Christ and for the love of humanity.

 

Latest Sermon from Touching Lives with James Merritt

James Merritt - May 7, 2017

Star_Witness

On a trip to the grocery store, a man was looking for a parking place. When another shopper chose to walk down the center of the row, the man became very angry. After parking, he sought out his fellow shopper to give him a piece of his mind. As he entered the store, he felt vindicated, until he realized he was wearing a Christian t-shirt. (Insert laugh) We’ve all blown our witness, but we can be good witnesses for Jesus without having to rely on our clothing to tell the story.

“Against You, You only, have I sinned and done what is evil in Your sight; so You are right in Your verdict and justified when You judge.” Psalm 51:4 If there is anything that should motivate all of us who know God, love God, and worship God to avoid sin it should be Psalm 51:4. Even […]

“Let me hear joy and gladness; let the bones You have crushed rejoice.” Psalm 51:8 I do not think you could find anyone in the Bible, other than Jesus, who loved God more than King David loved God.

“For I know my transgressions and my sin is always before me.” Psalm 51:3 When I was a small boy, a lady named Mrs. Gunter used to keep me every Saturday while my mother worked. Mrs. Gunter’s son, Scotty, had a hat that I particularly admired and wanted. One day, I packed that hat with some […]

“Have mercy on me, O God, according to Your unfailing love; according to Your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.” Psalm 51:1-2 When King David wrote Psalm 51, it was right after his sin of adultery had been exposed. The King had gone to great […]

“Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.” Psalm 51:5 There are sicknesses and then there are sicknesses. Doctors were recently asked their opinion of the most terrifying, horrifying sicknesses in history. These were their top three. The first is what is called the “Black Death,” or now known as […]

“May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.” Psalm 19:14 Jim Irwin was one of the astronauts who went to the moon. After he got back, he said this, “When I looked out and saw the earth, about as big as […]

The Latest from Pastors Edge

Recently our church staff leadership has begun specific discussion on the issue of diversity. At some level every church must deal with how it will approach the racial makeup of the congregation. Some church leaders simply ignore the issue, which is, I believe, to the church’s ultimate detriment. Others accept racial change in their congregation, […]
