The Greatest Artist

  God is the Greatest Artist of all time. We, as human are able to create beautiful things because the Creator created us. Whenever I get inspired by a musician or an artist with their talent, I am reminded that they are just a reflection of the Greatest Artist. Therefore, keep on creating great music, art and other creative pieces because it will keep on pointing to the One who alone deserves all the glory!...

Withholding Nothing

  I am constantly reminded that in order to experience true freedom, we have to let go of everything; but it is always easier said than done. Living a life of complete surrender to Christ is hard. We love ourselves too much, even to the point of being narcissist and full of pride. The times when I have been able to fully let go of things and “withhold nothing” from Christ is when I saw...

The Hearts of Men

  Coming back from my recent trip to Cambodia, I was reminded once again about the evils of human slavery. As I looked at the issue, I couldn’t help but to conclude that everything starts from the heart. Since we live in a broken world, we try so hard to “fix” ourselves from the pain and hurt in our lives. This is where many of us turn to various things to numb our pain; but...

World Shakers. History Makers.

        I remember when our kids were younger and they all went to the same school. It was so much easier driving them to one location; but now, they all go to different schools. I miss those younger years when we were all together in one car. Everyday, as we got closer to school, I had one of them pray on behalf of all of us. Of course, we rotated the person...

Winter Baptism 2013

        We made history at our 2013 Winter Baptism. It was our first time having the baptism at our Transformation Center. Secondly, we had the most people being baptized at one time in the history of our church. I am constantly amazed at God’s transformative work of calling us His own and by bringing us from darkness to His marvelous light (1 Pe 2:9). I have the privilege of being an eyewitness...

Access Series: “Playlist”

  Designed by HMCC-AA Publications Team       Have you ever been asked, “What’s on your playlist?” In fact, you can find out a lot about a person by the type of music they listen to and what’s on their iPod. With every song, it shapes our mind and our worldview. There are lots of songs about love, relationships, success, identity and the list goes on and on. This Friday we are starting a...

The Cost of Following Jesus

  In our generation, we have domesticated the Gospel. When Jesus challenged people to follow Him, He demanded their lives. There was a cost involved in following Him; but we have drifted away from Jesus’ initial call. This is the reason why when we hear the Gospel message in a clear and unadulterated way, it cuts to our hearts. We must preach the Gospel and lay out the cost in following Jesus. Then, we must...

Spoken Word of Transformation

  It is hard to believe that we have started our 18th year of our church this September. This time of the year always brings excitement to my heart because we get to reach out to a new crop of students. The vision of transformation never stops. For the last 18 years, we have seen people come to the University of Michigan with different issues; but by the time they graduate, they experience God’s grace...

Reminders from Asia Trip 2013

  Photo by Duncan P. Walker       Whenever I spend time in Asia, God reminds me of things that He is doing around the world. This past summer God reaffirmed a lot of things we are doing as a church in trying to reach the nations with the Gospel. The reminders that God reiterated to me are: 1) ONENESS. There is power in unity. It was huge blessing to see all our HMCC...
