July 10, 2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the first service of the Bulgarian Church of God in Chicago in 1995.

Without question, the Supreme Court’s decision to impose homosexual marriage as a constitutional right is disappointing. There was a time when the Court rightly bestowed a great respect for America’s Christian heritage and to the Creator on which the Declaration of Independence was based. Sadly, those time are passed. As Christians, we know God, in His great wisdom, established the institution of marriage as only between one man and one woman. Not even the Supreme Court can change that. Because of judicial activism, Christian ministries can and should take steps to protect their religious freedoms. No longer can even churches believe they ...
