This week we will celebrate Thanksgiving. Families and friends will gather to spend time with family and give thanks to God for the blessings we have received, but did you know that God wants us to always thank Him, even when we’re going through difficult times? I thank God for many things. I thank Him …
Our nation has been rocked with natural disasters. From raging storms that swept through Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Tennessee, killing over 300, to flooding in the Midwest, to earthquakes in the West and elsewhere, to wildfires, to hurricanes, to tornadoes, to ice storms, to drought. And this year, we’ve been hit hard with four hurricanes, …
Thursday, May 2, 2013, is the National Day of Prayer. In 2 Chronicles 7:13-14, we read, “When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (NKJV)
If there has ever been a time in America’s history where we need to turn back to God, this is the time! Will you join Personhood FL in
What Does the Dark Knight Rises Shooting at the Colorado Movie Theater Say about America, Pastor Bryan Longworth, Covenant Tabernacle
As we gather together to worship the Lord, our hearts are saddened by the shooting that happened in Colorado, and I think we must ask ourselves what does The Dark Knight Rises shooting tell us about America? What does this tell us about our country? Where have we gone wrong that a young person can walk into a theater, a bright person, someone that is in a PhD program, can walk into a theater with a bulletproof vest, helmet, gas mask, four weapons, and thousands of rounds of ammunition and kill 12 people and wound dozens of others? Certainly God has some answers for us. We’re going to look to see what the word of God has to say concerting this subject.
We need to turn back to God, and you may ask: how do we need to turn back to God? It’s not us that need to turn back to God, it’s all those wicked people out there, but let me tell you something: when the most conservative branch of Christianity only has 9% of its members that have a Biblical worldview, we have a problem in this nation. When the majority of Christians are more likely to be influenced by TV, the news, and movies than they are from the word of God, we have a problem in this nation. When we have pastors that stand up and condone fornication, and adultery, and homosexuality, and perform homosexual marriage ceremonies, and even ordain ministers of the gospel of Jesus Christ who are homosexual, something that God says is an abomination, we have a problem in this nation. When we shed the blood of over 55,000,000 preborn children for our convenience, for our figures, for our careers, we have a problem in this nation.
God has called us to be the culture carriers. He has called us to disciple the nations. He has called us to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. He has called us to be the pillar and ground of truth, and we have failed to do this in this nation. In fact, we inherited a nation that was largely
Will You & Your Church Answer the Call 2 Fall? The Call 2 Fall Declaration comes straight from the pages of Scripture:
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Today is the National Day of Prayer. Our nation has a long heritage of turning back to God in a time of need. These times of need are usually precipitated by compromise and sin which leads to the judgment of God. Those times of judgment often bring us back to God, and coming back to God in turn brings His blessings.
If there were ever a time that America needs to turn back to God, it is now! If there were ever a time when the church of Jesus Christ needs to turn back to God, it is now! On May the 3rd, join us in participating in the National Day of Prayer, and join us in collecting petitions for the Florida ProLife Personhood Amendment. “We, the people” of the state of Florida must turn back to the covenant we made with Almighty God…
October Baby presents the prolife message in a way that grips the heart and soul and offers healing and forgiveness to those who have been involved in abortion. October Baby has taken the movie industry by storm, opening in the top ten and continues to run strong in theaters across America and Florida and is opening in new theaters Friday, April 13!
“I had the privilege of watching October Baby at last year’s Care Net Conference in Orlando. I can tell you that it is the most powerful prolife movie I have ever seen and second only to The Passion among all movies I’ve seen. When you watch October Baby, you will laugh; you will cry; you will be challenged on the value of every human life. You don’t want to miss October Baby.” – Pastor Bryan Longworth, Director, Personhood Florida.
You’ve probably seen the bumper sticker that reads: 2012: The end of an error. It’s probably on the car of a Republican who wants to see the end of the Obama administration.
2012 is a new year, and with a new year, we look for change. We look for the new year to be better than the previous year.
Certainly, we have been in some tough economic times in this country. These times have led many to ask, “How’s that hope and change working for you?” Certainly for a lot of people, not as well as they had hoped.
With the loss of Mississippi’s Initiative 26, many in the prolife movement and the media have asked what is our strategy here in Florida. They are quick to point out that Mississippi is more prolife than Florida and ask how we think we can win if a similar initiative can’t even pass in Mississippi.
The good news is that leading up to and following the Mississippi vote, Personhood FL has linked up with new volunteers who are willing to help make the case for life in their county! We currently are working on a plan to contact every church in Florida between now and the end of the year so that the churches can present the Florida ProLife Personhood Petition to their parishioners in January, but we need your help to accomplish this. Will you help us take the message of life to every church, every pastor in your county? Please join us for a conference call/training tomorrow (Tuesday, November 15 from 9 – 10 PM) where we’ll go over how to contact the churches and pastors and the new FL ProLife Personhood Petition. This call will cover key strategies for ending abortion and protecting all innocent human life. Register to join us on the call below.
WHAT DOES ONE NATION UNDER GOD REALLY MEAN?

On November 12, we’ll hear top American thinkers and leaders on how to view history and current events in light of God’s Word, and how to take action that aligns with His truth.
Speakers include: Focus on the Family Founder, Dr. James Dobson; American Historian David Barton, WallBuilders; Former Congressman Bob McEwen; Lila Rose, Live Action Films; Dr. Timothy Johnson; Rev. Samuel Rodriguez; Speaker Newt Gingrich; and John Stemberger, Florida Family Policy Council
On August 6, the nation will come together at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas (and locally via live webstreams) for a solemn gathering of prayer and fasting for our country.
We believe that America is in a state of crisis. Not just politically, financially or morally, but because we are a nation that has not honored God in our successes or humbly called on Him in our struggles.

Sermon, Memorial Day, Is the Lord For Us or For Our Adversaries? Pastor Bryan Longworth, Covenant Tabernacle
When the Lord appeared to Joshua near Jericho, Joshua asked, ‘Are You for us or for our adversaries?’ So He said, ‘No, but as Commander of the army of the LORD I have now come.’ This is a curious answer. One would think that the Lord would take sides in this battle, especially since Israel was His chosen people. Yes the answer was, No, but I am here. Joshua’s question really was misdirected. The question should not have been whether God was on Israels side but rather was Israel on God’s side, for it is only when a nation is on God’s side that God will bless and defend and fight for that nation.
Moreover, when a nation departs from His commandments and violates His precepts
