WHAT WOULD YOU SAY TO SOMEONE WHO’S THINKING ABOUT GIVING YOUR CHURCH A TRY?
“We would love to have you,” Pigman said. “We need people who are interested in studying and practicing what the Bible teaches.”
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IS THE BIGGEST ISSUE FACING THE FAITHFUL TODAY?
“The trend today is to do what people like to do instead of doing what the Bible says to do,” he said. “Worship and serving God is not an entertainment type of thing, which seems to be the trend in a lot of religious groups today. This is not an entertainment industry; our purpose is to worship God.”
