Because He loves us they hate us The message is as clear and true as God meant it. We love Him because He loved us first. But the world hates us because He was and is hated, first.
A Hard lesson for believers to hear.
Pastor William has hit the nail on the head. Whenever we encounter the worldview, and state the Christian's view, the world will turn on us, in every situation. Expect it and embrace it and count it as all joy as a sign of His love for us. The world hates believers, as they hate Christ.
There is no middle ground to loving Jesus Christ. If we do love Him and obey Him and stand fast for Him, then we will have persecution.
Thank you William for teaching us that lesson.
Timely Message Praise God for bringing each one of us to Grace Fellowship Church because we have the privilege of hearing this kind of expository preaching 2-3 times a week and the result has been Spiritual growth for each one of us. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!
THIS HARD PREACHING This message is sobering for any believer, but it is true. Pastor William clarifies the scripture like no other.
His teaching is clear and straight-forward and always makes the listener think hard about the message that the Lord has given to us through His servants.
William has been blessed with an incredible investigative drive and a spiritual desire to reveal this to his audience. His skill of unwrapping the text and delivering a clear message never fails to uncover truths that even long time Christians have never really seen before, even after many years of bible study. I, for one, feel that he is as good as any teacher I have ever heard at proclaiming, admonishing, teaching, and edifying his flock so they will be complete in Christ.
Thank you Lord, for giving us our pastor. I pray that others locally in the area will join us in regular worship, and all others will listen regularly to William revealing the word of God through His holy scriptures each week.

INCREDIBLE PLAN, WONDERFUL SAVOR God is sovereign and He demonstrates to us that He is in control and always has been. From before the world began, He chose us for His children, and He knew the world would fall and sin would rule our lives. But He loved us saved us from death by giving us His son to die a horrible death on the cross, so we wouldn't have to suffer through a horrible death awaiting those who did not choose to worship and believe in Him and all He did for us. These people will, unfortunately go into the Great Tribulation and have to suffer many terrible things before they are granted a painful death.
Thank you Lord for giving us a pastor who is filled with the desire to study and teach us the true revelation of the plan of God.
I am a friend of JESUS Thank you Pastor William, This sermon
touched me and I am so thankful for
GFC and all my friends that are in Christ. Thank you Jesus for being my friend , and help me grow in your love to others.
What, another eye opener!! This goes along with "Our Idenity in Christ", there has to be a before and an after as the result of our salvation. When God awakens us from the dead and makes us alive in Him, He gives us Himself. At the time of regeneration we are filled with the Godhead, the Spirit of God the Father, the Spirit of God the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We are completely filled at that time and there is no other filling, we have all the power we need to live a Holy, separated life on to God and God did it all. Praise His Name and to God be the Glory!
Great Sermon! I'm so grateful for being to hear all the sermons that Pator Will has done. I've been out of town the past 3 weeks and I'm so blessed that I could hear his sermons while I'm gone and not miss any of them. There are so GREAT!! Thank You
The Bible Conference yesterday was so good that several of us commented in the 9:30- 11:50 morning session that we were expecting another hour of teaching when we broke for coffee and much to our surprise discovered it was almost lunchtime. Time goes by too quickly in his cleasses. Our Pastor and Teacher William Rogers is the best kept secret in this part of the country. The teaching is always straight from the word of God, is relevant to our daily lives, and gives us the good news of the gospel which never fails to open up our hearts and minds to wanting more of the real message of God's will and purpose for our lives. This weekend we were shown who we are in Christ Jesus and how we should live according to His promises. He worked us through an exercise to see who we were before Christ and whe we are after Christ has saved us. Quite a great message of the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ when He takes the old man and regenerates our spirit and all things become new. Thank you Jesus for showing us thst truth through your scripture and the blessing of ministry you have bestowed upon our pastor Wiilam.
Great Sermon! Let not our hearts be troubled , we believe in God. What a message from God through the Holy Spirit, William delivered.
We, the members of Grace Fellowship Church, are so very grateful to the Lord for giving us a tremendous pastor & teacher in William Rogers, along with the leadership of our church, none of whom will stray from the full counsel of the word of God.
Whether it is at a ladies luncheon, a Thursday night Bible study, a men or women's study, a youth lesson, Sunday Equippimg Hour, the Pot Grace Lunch, or the main service, this church follows the inerrant and inspired word of God, only. In an age of emerging churches and false teaching, we at GFC have been especially blessed with leaders who follow the divine word.
But, let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.
1 Corinthians 10:12
Thank you God for our Pastor, William who constantly reminds us of Your grace and mercy, not our works.
Great Sermon! For a church the size of Grace Fellowship Church, the Lord has truly blessed us more than churches 4 or 5 times our size. The number of people who attended is almost twice the size of our entire church. (79 ladies were there, but at least 10 people were unable to be present because of illness) The inspired message was given by Carol's sister Cathy, the food was wonderful, the fellowship was exciting and enthusiastic, and the Lord led us to His divine word. Cathy spoke about her personal salvation and how she continuosly studies and applies scripture to her life in all situations. What a blessing she was to the body of Christ at this event.
I can't wait until next year, and I was only a server!!! I didn't even get to eat the food.
TRAVEL MERCIES IT WAS GREAT HAVING GLEN, CATHY, AND CECILE, VISITING THIS WEEKEND, FROM MOBILE, AL. THEY WERE A BLESSING TO OUR CHURCH BODY. WE PRAY FOR A SAVE RETURN TO THERE HOME CHURCH, CHRIST FELLOWSHIP BAPTIST CHURCH.
What a blessing! Thank you, Cathy, for being faithful to deliver the message of true hope from the Word of God. We were encouraged & challenged by the message you brought at the 2011 Women's Spring Event! God is eternally trustworthy-Lord, cause me to trust & obey You!
Ladies Spring lunch LORD Thank you for the fellowship I have with other Christian women, that you have placed in my life, to guide me in your Truth, and LORD thank you for loving me and growing me. Cathy,
thank you for your testimony, and sharing your time and GOD'S truth in
Great Sermon! The teaching by Pastor William Pogers, we are privileged to hear every time we as a church get togethe (and there are several times each week) is a blessing only God could give us.
We are a very small church, only three years old, and I bet few churches in the entire world, have been as blessed as we are to have such strong biblical teaching.
The Thursday night sessions have been about the Revelation of Jesus Christ, as He described the Last Days to His apostles, during His last days as a human being. John was somehow given a glimpse of heaven and the future events that we in this time, in the last days, are blessed to be able to somewhat understand. And then someone like our pastor, Will, comes to us and essentially "opens the scriptures" to us and shows us what few have ever seen. When I heard this message, I was in tears as I studied and listened to what God has in store for us, and what He has done for us and Who He is.
Thank God for the teaching and the excellent vehicle of Sermon Audio which brings us this teaching over and over.
Praise God for Pastor William.
Blessed be our Lord, Jesus Christ.
