What is the Bible? Can we trust the Bible?

February 9, 2021

What is the Bible? Can we trust the Bible? By Andrew Chalmers February 9, 2021 7:57 pm No Comments In this session join Andrew Chalmers as we explore why we believe that the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God. This is of critical importance right now that we understand why the Bible can be trusted and how we should view this sacred book. Can we trust the Bible as the Word of God? In this session join Andrew Chalmers as we explore why we believe that the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God. This is of critical importance right now that we understand why the Bible can be trusted and how we should view this sacred book. The Bible is the inspired and inerrant word of God. This was the way the early church viewed the scriptures and is the way that we should view the written word of God today. The scriptures are under attack now, even more than ever. Not only are countries around the world banning the book from being printed or read, also even Christians, theologians are attacking the word of God and challenging whether or not we can trust the word. Let’s look at a few KEY scriptures that help us know that God’s word is divinely inspired and can be trusted. And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying, “THIS IS THE COVENANT THAT I WILL MAKE WITH THEM AFTER THOSE DAYS, SAYS THE LORD: I WILL PUT MY LAWS UPON THEIR HEART, AND ON THEIR MIND I WILL WRITE THEM,” [He then says,] “AND THEIR SINS...

What is God Like? Does God Discipline?



WHO IS GOD? Many people often wonder what God is like. Have you ever asked the question of what God is like? In this video, join Andrew Chalmers, as he talks about an important attribute of God’s character that we find in the Bible. This session specifically helps to answer the question, Does God discipline us? Many people have varying views and ideas about what God is like. In order for us to really find out the truth of who God is and what he is really like, we must always go to our primary source, the Bible. In the bible we can find the answers to many of our questions we have about God. Does God discipline us? In this session, Andrew Chalmers explores Hebrews chapter 12 where it talks about God’s discipline in our lives. We discover in this chapter the truth that God not only disciplines us but also that His discipline in our lives is a sign of being His children. If we are not being disciplined by our heavenly father, then we are not truly His children. Punishment vs. Discipline Is there a difference between punishment and discipline? In this video we explore the difference and how important discipline is in our lives. What we discover from this is that not only do we need discipline but also that God’s discipline in our lives is a sign of God’s love for us. He loves us so much and He is so good that he’s constantly working in our lives to bring us more and more into what is best for us. God uses discipline...

Redeem – The Beautiful Exchange Clothing Closet

January 28, 2021

Cindy continues to lead our clothing closet with passion, love, and care. As the community continues to donate incredible items, we have been able to help over 20 women this month with hygiene products, warm blankets, clothes, shoes and food! We always get the chance to connect one on one with them and share the love of Jesus with them. God is moving powerfully through Cindy as she pours her heart into these ladies. We have been working with some for the past few months, and some are getting close to going to treatment!  Our hope and vision is to take care of the needs of women and their children and reach their hearts with the tender love of Jesus.  Please continue to pray for radical transformation to come over each woman that walks into our closet!  If you would like to volunteer with Redeem, please go to our website and fill out your...

21 NIGHTS OF PRAYER



21 Nights of Prayer Wow! We just finished our 21 Nights of Prayer, and I am still reeling from all God did! From January 1st-21st believers from all over the community gathered together in our little prayer room to simply worship the Lord and to pray. There were no gimmicks, no programs, no catch 22’s, just simple desire to worship and go deeper with the Lord in prayer. With this kind of unity and purity of heart, God is guaranteed to move among His people. And did He ever!  What He did… Night after night, I recall looking across the room and seeing every single person engaged in the worship and intercession being led from the stage. One person reported that during a Wednesday night she felt such peace enter the room that she couldn’t even get up from where she was sitting. Other nights, this same person testified that the power of God was so tangible she couldn’t sit down if she wanted to!  One definitive moment that stood out for me was the second Saturday night. An altar call was given for those in the room to receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Multiple people came up, received prayer, encountered the Lord, and then the whole room broke out in spontaneous praise, dancing before the Lord. The joy was contagious! A Life Changed One of the people that received prayer during this altar call was a young man who recently joined the army and was stationed close by at Ft. Benning. After hearing about our prayer room on google, he visited us on that first night...

First Outreach of the Year – Chattahoochee Valley

January 27, 2021

On Saturday January 16, we kicked off the year with our first monthly outreach. People from 4 different churches gathered at Take the City. After a little bit of worship and training, we split into teams and went out. My team and I walked around the Highlands community. Even though it was cold, the Lord showed up in powerful ways. We ministered to one man on his porch. We prayed for a him and his mom; he teared up and felt encouraged by our prayers. As we continued our walk, we prayed blessings over some homes and met a few neighbors. As we made our way back to the building, we met a woman on her porch. We asked her if we could approach, and she said yes. She was a beautiful, older woman named Brenda. She shared that she would pray and talk to God every morning and would minister to people as they walked by. We asked her if we could pray for anything. She said, “yes! My back! It really hurts.” I said, “Well we are going to pray and ask Jesus to heal your back.” My team and I prayed.  I asked her, “How do you feel?”  Eyes brightening, she said, “I feel better!”  I then asked, “On a scale of 1 to 10, where was the pain before we prayed? “ She said, “a 10.”  I then asked, “where is it now?” She replied, “ a 1″. I said, Really?! Thank you, Jesus!” We prayed one more time that the Lord would heal the rest of her pain, and then hugged her and wished her...

Redeem Angel Tree

December 29, 2020

This Christmas, a church partnered with Redeem to sponsor the ladies at a local club and their children for Christmas gifts this year. They gave over 5000 dollars worth of gifts for both the women and their children! Many women were tearing up as they walked into a room full of gifts for their kids. We are so grateful for Sheila Orr who orchestrated it all and for her church Courts of Praise Worship Center who all came together to sponsor these families. Jonathan and I were able to take one of the women out to lunch afterwards, and she was very open with us. She shared with us on how every woman in there is struggling to make ends meet and how these gifts were such a need this year. We believe that this act of love – continuing to go into the club and building relationships with these women – is going to bring full life transformation to their lives and their children’s lives!  Jessica Cronin, Director of Redeem If you would enjoy getting involved with our Redeem ministry, go to our website and fill out our volunteer...

A PLEA TO THE INTERCESSORS: “DON’T FORGET EVANGELISM”



disclaimer: The title of this blog may seem pretty harsh. Let me preface it by clearly stating that this is in no way a rebuke. I wouldn’t dare assume that I am in the position to do so as I myself have only been a part of this awe-inspiring prayer movement for 6 months (If you don’t know, there is a massive movement of night-and-day prayer and worship that is sweeping the globe at an unprecedented rate). I am speaking from the perspective of a total newbie, but also someone who is totally bought in, serving full time in a prayer room, and giving myself to God’s purposes for night-and-day prayer to sweep the earth. Everything I have written is based on the Holy Spirit’s conviction in my own life. It is with this heart I feel the urge to write the following. So… sweaty palms and all…    The disconnect I’ve heard statistics on the global prayer movement that are absolutely mind boggling. Since 1999 the world has seen a steady increase of places of unceasing worship and prayer, from just a known handful to thousands worldwide. That’s amazing. Surely all of this momentum in prayer would mean more people coming to Christ. Right? Sadly, this is not the case. In western society not only do statistics show a huge decrease in Christian conversion rates, but believers are actually leaving the church in droves. Don’t believe me? Just google “Christianity in America.” My point in highlighting this isn’t to say that prayer is unnecessary in the salvation of souls. On the contrary, I believe it is absolutely essential....

Christmas Toy Drive – Chattahoochee Valley Outreach

December 28, 2020

First of all, thank you to everyone who donated presents towards our Christmas Toy Drive and came and wrapped presents! Our goal was 60 presents, and we were able, to instead, bless 180+ children for Christmas! The joy on the children’s faces as they opened their gifts Saturday December 19th was truly priceless. Thank you. Along with the wrapped presents, we were able to give out a few more things. One, we were able to bless 10 families of four with homemade Christmas dinners provided by an all-natural restaurant on 2nd Ave. Secondly, we were able to give out 316 candy canes with the message “Nothing you confess could make Jesus love you less” on them. Thirdly, we gave out several Gospels of John. Every gift was a gift of blessing and hope. In total, we sent out five teams in Columbus, GA and Phenix City, AL Saturday December 19th. During those outreaches, one little 3rd grade girl gave her life to Christ and received a children’s Bible, 4 people were physically healed, and many people were prayed for. Each team returned to Take the City with plenty to share about what God did in their neighborhoods. We are thankful for how the community came together to share the love of Jesus and bless our neighbors with practical needs. God is so good.If you would like to go out on outreach or volunteer with our local outreaches, please email...

My first encounter with Take the City was going to Wilson Apartments in Columbus GA. We were met by a man from that neighborhood who prayed with us before we began the outreach. We set up an area for the kids to play and others went door to door witnessing and praying for people. It truly was a humbling experience. Another time I got to pray at an abortion clinic which was another humbling experience. The worship services the night before are always dynamic and spirit led. However I will conclude with the best part for me was being an eight week participant of Take the City boot camp. All of the leaders were simply AWESOME and I learned so much during those eight weeks. I thank God for all these wonderful opportunities!
