Central Passage
Matthew 13:3-30

In Matthew 13:3-30 Jesus speaks of four different types of soil: hardened, rocky, thorny and fruitful.

Hardened-  a soil which the Word does not penetrate

Rocky- a soil which lacks depth and perception of the Word

Thorny- a soil that is choked out by the the cares and desires of this world

Fruitful- a soil that is prepared for the gospel


Which type of soil are you?

Do  you choose to ignore the Word and go on living your life the way you choose?

Are you one that heard the Word, yet didn't let it set deep roots within you?

Have you heard the Word, live by the Word, but still let the things of this world tangle you up?

Are you fruitful, bearing  good fruit, living for the Lord, growing and maturing?


For God's Word to take root, we must:

  • listen and take in the Word
  • listen to God speaking to us
  • let the Word of God take root in our hearts
  • not get ahead of God and His plan for us
  • wait on God

God requires 100% of us. We must give Him 100% of ourselves.

God requires 100% control of us and we must give Him control.


  • Are put in the church to create discord
  • Their purpose is to cause division
  • Are placed by our enemy, Satan

God allows the tares to grow, because He has a purpose for them. 

Trials are designed to help us grow in faith and we must remember that God is in control and He will help us through.

Christians are the good seed, the children of God. Tares are the children of the devil.

From the Pastor

   "Freedom Worship Center"

Our foundation is laid upon the principles of biblical holiness. Even before the church experienced the outpouring of the Holy Ghost, it's roots were set in the holiness revival of the past century.  It was and is, a holiness church--holiness in fact and holiness in name. The passing of 18 years has not diminished our holiness position or convictions. The years have, instead, strengthened our knowledge that without holiness it is impossible to please God. We hereby remind ourselves that the Scriptures enjoin us at all times to examine our own hearts. Conditions of our day desperately require it. The basic doctrines of the church have remained constant since the inception of the church."

  God's law is supreme, however we are to obey the laws of our country insofar as they are not in conflict with obedience to God (Acts 5:29). When it becomes necessary to disagree with practices and requirements of government, we should do so out of a concern for the promotion of righteousness and not out of delight in discord and controversy.
