In his profound work, Messages from the Small Country Church: Readings, Sermons, Observations, and an Invitation to More Than Just Donuts! Rev. Dr. C Joseph Fifer invites readers to seek Christ and embrace the relationship he offers, then go to church and celebrate this wonderful new life. He begins by asserting that it is not the size of the church that matters but the message that the church preaches and lives by that is important. Derived from sermons from his time as a pastor in the Junction Bible Christian Church, his teachings include the principles of the Christian faith and the hope found in God. He emphasizes the value of having compassion and love for others and discusses the sanctity of life. He encourages listeners to heed Christ’s teachings, follow him, and live for him.
The sermons explore essential aspects of small churches which still have a strong sense of community that fosters faith. I appreciated that the work not only teaches biblical truth derived from many scriptural passages but also encourages readers to live out this truth in their everyday life. Dr. Fifer writes with a strong and encouraging voice. He includes many inspiring messages about God’s everlasting love. He recognizes the challenges Christians face today and encourages them through the hope found in Christ. I loved that the book explores many fundamental aspects of the Christian faith. Messages from the Small Country Church by Rev. Dr. C Joseph Fifer is an actionable guide for applying biblical principles in daily life. It is empowering and highly recommended to readers seeking Christian teachings backed by biblical scripture.
