Parsonage-South SideThis is the side of our house. Notice the razor & barb wire & padlocked gate.
We are told that it hasn’t always been this way for crime in the Bahamas.
We are also told in the Bible that it hasn’t always been that sin was on the scene. (Genesis 3)
” … And it came about when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him. Then the Lord said to Cain, ‘Where is Abel your brother?’
And he said, ‘I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?’ “. (Genesis 4: 8B-9)
When a society stops believing that individuals are other individuals’ keepers, it is inevitable that locked gates and barbed wire and razor wire and police & jails and (you fill in the blank) … become necessary.
Criminals pervert & twist God’s design that we would be each others’ keepers into a fearful & disheartening reality that some brothers are their brothers’ schemers.  The only cure & prevention for criminal behavior is Jesus Christ. When a brother’s schemer is born again he or she is radically made brand-new, from the inside out!
(2 Corinthians 5:17).
Prisons which acknowledge this make an observable difference. The prisons which don’t are beating their heads against the wall.


We can thank Adam & Eve for the mess we’re in. We can share Christ to do our part to clean up the mess we are in.

Brother-keeping for God’s glory,
Pastor Rob Elliott


Little girlsMore is caught by children than is taught to children. These precious little girls enter deeply into worship of Jesus because they want to … and they want to because their parents wanted to first.
This is not parental lip service; this is parental lifestyle. What have your kids concluded about you & your Jesus? The chances are that they will come to their own conclusions largely based on yours!
“Now, therefore, fear the Lord and serve Him in sincerity and truth; and put away the gods which your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. And if it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites  in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. (Joshua 24:14-15)

A Very Special Moment

Laying On Of Hands
The pastors laying their hands on me and my wife & praying for me as I am installed by God and by his people as the Senior Pastor-Teacher of the Calvary Bible Church, Nassau Bahamas.
This is a public & visible affirmation: An affirmation of God’s will being accomplished; of God’s people being submitted; of God’s Word being honored; of God’s servant being consecrated!
I will pray for you. Please pray for me & my family.

AngelsWe guard what we love.
Our spouses.
Our children and grandchildren.
Our health.
Our money.
Our homes.
Our God loves & guards us!
“For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone.” (Psalm 91:11-12)
There would be all kinds of havoc if the Lord did not guard you with his angels.
Consider this.
God has your back!


Car WashSometimes you have to sit very still and be washed. And then you can drive safely again.

“Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me and know my anxious thoughts; and see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.” (Psalm 139:23-24)

With Jesus’ love for all of you,
Pastor Rob Elliott
