Who are we?
We are a bible-believing community of market place professionals committed to defending the truth about the character and heart of God. Dissatisfied with what “church” has become but convinced about what scripture teaches the church can be, we started Sandbox Church in that pursuit.
why does this site exist?
Consider the following old story: A man in Europe wanted to travel to the United States. In those days, the only way to get here was by ocean liner. He worked hard, saved up his money and finally put together enough money to buy a one-way ticket. Then he bought a suitcase and filled it with cheese and crackers. That would be his food for the three week journey. It was all he could afford.
The ship set sail. Meal time came. All the other passengers went into the large dining hall to eat their meal. The man went to his suitcase and took out some cheese and crackers. While he could smell the delicious aromas coming from the meal being served, he went to a corner and ate his cheese and crackers. After the meal, he heard some of the passengers talk about how full they were. The poor man really wanted to join the others in the dining hall, but he had no extra money. Sometimes he would lie awake at night, dreaming of food.
Toward the end of the trip, another man came up to him and said, “Sir, I can’t help but notice that each time a meal is served, you go over to that corner and eat cheese and crackers. Why don’t you come into the banquet hall and eat with us?” The traveler was embarrassed, but finally stammered out, “Well, to tell you the truth, I only had enough money to buy the ticket. There was no money left over for the meals.” The other passenger raised his eyebrows in surprise. He said, “Why….don’t you realize the meals are included in the price of the ticket? Your meals have already been paid for.”
A wrong understanding and belief about God can lead to a life of just experiencing “cheese and crackers” when God is so much more. This website exists to prove and teach about the true nature and heart of God.
