The Power of the Kingdom

   “The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by […]

The Days Following the First Easter…

   “Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.” (John 16:7, ESV)   Last week I asked the question, “Why did Jesus come?”  Most Americans have heard of Jesus, […]

St. Mary Preschool – in business over 30 years, celebrates grand re-opening

St. Mary Preschool is a hidden gem in Escondido, tucked away from commercial areas, traffic and the public eye, but still conveniently located in the middle of the city.   The preschool just completed its first full-year since the total renovation of the school.

Escondido First Church of the Nazarene: A church committed to making a difference

In many ways, the Escondido First Church of the Nazarene (ECFN) can be considered very similar to other Evangelical churches in North County.  Along with its long history of serving the Escondido area, EFCN is perhaps most defined by its commitment to its Nazarene heritage of prayerfully caring for others and service to Jesus Christ.

Why Did Jesus Come?

“And when they came to the place that is called The Skull, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right and one on his left.

Be Fruitful and Multiply, Pt2

    “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. […]

Be Fruitful and Multiply

  “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…” So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the […]

Faith That Pleases God


 “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6, NKJV)   Hebrews 11 is called by many the “Faith” chapter.  It begins, “Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence […]

Living In The Light, Pt.3

  “This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.  If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.  But if we walk in the light as He is in the […]
