Dear Watermark Church family,

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.” Matthew 7:24-27

To make your life really count for the good of God’s Kingdom, and to bear fruit in your life that lasts for eternity, you must build your life on a rock-solid foundation that never shifts or falters – and that foundation is God’s Word. To build your life on the shifting sands of worldly wisdom, fame, riches or pleasures is simply a foolish choice to make.


This Sunday, 8/19, we will have a special guest speaker, Jeff Battles, who as a younger man spent years of His life building on the sand of worldly fame and riches. As God worked in his life, Jeff then chose to build his life on the rock of God’s Word, allowing God to bring about a profound transformation in his life.

Jeff will unfold for us his story of temporary success, then time in prison, depression, attempted suicide, then full surrender to Jesus and the birth of a global evangelism ministry that has led to thousands of Muslims accepting Christ.

Jeff will show videos of the children he ministers to and their orphanages in 20 villages. Please join us this Sunday at 10:30 AM and learn how we can follow HIS will for our lives in the daily choices we make as disciples of Christ.
