Welcome to Belgrade Christian Assembly's web home. We are an Assemblies of God church located in beautiful Belgrade, Montana.
Jeremiah 9:23-24 "Thus says the Lord, 'Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,' declares the Lord."
Have you visited the Prayer Request link? The Lord is graciously answering the prayers of many. If you want to pray with us for the requests or submit one of your own, please click on Prayer Request. We believe that God the Father answers the prayers of His children when they come to Him in Jesus' name.
Perhaps now, more than ever of late, we need to be studying the Word of God
and seeking His direction for our lives, our families, our churches, and our
ministry in this world. To this end, please put forth every effort to be
faithfully committed to your local church family. If you're in our area,
please consider joining us every time the church is open.
I want to show you a specific example from the Bible, in Luke 1:39-45, that will contradict what NARAL said about the Super Bowl L Doritos commercial. Here's the scripture: "Now at this time Mary arose and went in a hurry to the hill country, to a city of Judah, and entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. And she cried out with a loud voice and said, "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! And how has it happened to me, that the mother of my Lord would come to me? For behold, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord." The 'baby' leaped in her womb. 'blessed is the fruit of your womb'. The 'baby' leaped in my womb. 2000 years ago, Luke, a physician, knew, as did Elizabeth and Mary, that it was a human being that was in the uterus.
One of the most critical issues we are facing in our lifetime is that of affirming the value of every human life. Once conception has taken place, we affirm that every fertilized egg is a person, who, the Bible teaches, is made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26). We also believe that, in the words of our Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal , that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." (special emphasis mine)
Would you please earnestly pray that the laws in our land would be changed to protect the life of the unborn from conception until birth? Pray that the Lord will change the hearts of women and men who are considering aborting their children. Pray that hurting, wounded women and men, damaged by their decisions to abort, may turn to Christ in repentance and for forgiveness.
Sunday, February 7, 2016, Super Bowl L was played. Like has been the case for many years now, the commercials shown during the broadcast were a huge part of the overall production. The cost is astronomical for each commercial spot. That being the case, the various entities vie to make the best spot. One of them, made for the Doritos' brand, featured an ultrasound of a baby, and it's antics as its father ate Doritos. The National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) is incensed that this commercial attempts to humanize the fetus. Really? What do they think that what is shown by the ultrasound inside the woman's womb is? Is it an alien? Is it a tissue blob? Knowing that the end of this thing should be its birth, if it isn't human during the ultrasound, when does it become human? Does the mother or father exercise god-like power and pronounce it human or not? The reason for NARAL's anger is very transparent. This ultrasound, as every ultrasound of a pregnant woman's womb, shows a tiny human being, and that tiny human being has been endowed by its Creator with certain unalienable rights, such as life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. As such, aborting that tiny human being is murder. And NARAL doesn't like being exposed as supporting the murder of innocent human beings.

We think that it is very important that Christians know what they believe, and why they should believe it. So we have made the Assemblies of God Statement of Fundamental Truths available on the website. Every one of these 16 truths is given with scriptural evidence or backing. If you would like even more, please visit the Assemblies web page that has links to all the scriptures Fundamental Truths (Full Statement).
Of course, we also strongly believe that Christian Education is important. Christian Education enables us to fulfill the part of the greatest commandment that says "Love the Lord your God...with all your mind...."(Mark 12:30). To that end, we teach the Word of God in Sunday school, Wednesday night Bible studies, Bible Quiz, etc. Please consider making regular Bible study a part of your week by joining us at one or more of our scheduled times.

Please feel free to communicate with us if you have a prayer need, if you have a testimony of the Lord's working in your life that you want to share, or if you have a question about the Bible or the Christian life. We do not claim to have any answers in and of ourselves. However, we believe with all our hearts that the Bible does have all of the answers. It just takes a little digging and looking to the Lord for His wisdom. mailto:firstname.lastname@example.orgLast Updated 23 January 2016
