Enjoyed a great Revival last week at Unity Baptist in Sumter, SC. Great preaching and worship. Thanks to Pastor Ken John Feturo for allowing us to share God's message thru song with his congregation.
We are currently in Revival at Lakewood Baptist in Sumter, SC thru Wednesday night and have been truly blessed by Lakewood singers Allison Welch, Franklin Henderson, Pastor Sammy Thompson and the Lakewood musicians. Pastor Cliff Leonard from New Providence Baptist in Hartsville, SC has been bringing the word each service and last night the youth praise team from his church came and worshipped with us. Wow! what a service.
The Believers Quartet original member of 17 years Stan Ardis is stepping down to spend more time with his family Bill Cockerill will be moving from the tenor to the baritone position and Minister of Music (that because he runs the music tracks). We would like to introduce our new tenor. His name is Mike Mitchum residing in Sumter, SC and a member of Springbank Baptist Church. Come out and welcome Mike as he begins his journey with the Believers Quartet.
The Believers are excited about what God still has in store for 2016. If you would like to join in, give us a call and book us for your Church or event. We pray that many hearts will be touched as we proclaim God's Word through song. Remember to tell everyone that Jesus is Coming Back.

When God Does Not Answer Prayer The Way You Expected!
Christians believe in the power of prayer and can tell story after story of the ways God has done amazing things in response to our request. But sometimes God does not answer the way we want. As Christians, we have loved ones die, we get sick, we lose jobs, and disaster strikes us. Those are the times non-Christians may question our faith. Does God exist? Does He love us? Does He hear our prayer? Is He really all powerful?
If Christians are going to speak about our faith when God says yes to our prayers, it is appropriate that we speak about our faith when He does not say yes. So here are some things Christians believe when things do not go as we prayed they would.
1. God is still God. God acts for His glory and to advance His kingdom. He does not have to explain Himself to us, and even if He did, we might not understand.
2. We still have faith. Even in pain, even when we do not understand, and even when our hearts are breaking....we cling to faith in our God.
We need a God in control, not a god we control.
3. We believe this life is not the final answer. We believe we will live with God forever after this world is no more. That is our reality.
4. God will make all things right. Death does not win. God will dry our tears. Satan is defeated.
So to our non-believing friends, we want you to know that God answers prayers. but please do not think our faith is dependant on God doing what we ask. We would never ask you to share a faith that believes we control God. We ask you to share a faith that believes God is in control no matter what. That is why we believe.
