Recently I was made aware that Coke has never patented their soft drink. The reason they ignored this process is if they patented their product they would have to reveal the ingredients. Coke’s secret ingredient makes their product successful and their drink is consumed around the world at 1.9 billion drinks per day. Ironically, while we do not know the specific ingredients that are in the soda, Americans continue to make the original Coke a leading soft drink in our culture.
According to many, we are no longer living in a Christian nation. The times have certainly changed and a common expression is that this great land of ours has fallen from the ideals and principles of our founding fathers. The statistics tell the same story.
There are only a few things more rewarding in this world than to the see how God works to change the lives of those who trust Him. To see God take broken lives, broken families, and broken people who have lost hope and give them a new life is amazing. The power of the Gospel is real, and when a person repents of their sin and puts their trust in Christ Jesus, He powerfully changes their life. This is the vision behind the Annie Armstrong offering.
Our Pastor writes most of the blog posts we publish, however, occasionally some of our other church leadership (some staff, some volunteer) who also contribute to the New Life blog.
