The Kachelman family is involved in all kinds of works and activities. Our family website will hopefully give you a place to connect with us and access resrouces that may help you in some way.
We are involved in several different businesses and the links to those are below in our resources section. You can find links here for the churches, the mission efforts, and even the businesses in which we are involved. We encourage you to contact us if we are able to be of any assistance to you.
Our Kachelman Publications is our effort to provide materials for your personal, group or class Bible study. Many of these materials are free and others may be purchased for a small price (to help pay the cost of publication). Preachers, class teachers, church leaders, and other Christians may be interested in these materials for teaching the Word of God. Books, Bible class materials (with Handouts, PowerPoint, etc.), sermons and audio lessons are available. We hope that they can be used to spread the Word of God around the world.
Our primary mission is to fulfill the great commission given by Christ before he left this earth (Mark 16:15-16). In order to preach the word to “all the world,” we work in several areas, and we strive to talk to friends, family and co-workers about God's plan of salvation. If there is any way we can help you, please contact us! We want to help others learn the Word of God, find out what you need to do to be saved.
Sin separates us from God (Is. 59:1-2). We cannot save ourselves (Jer. 10:23). It is through God's gift of His only Son that we can have redemption (Jn. 3:16). Jesus is the sacrifice for our sins and died for all to be saved (Eph. 5:2; Heb. 9:15). This blood shed on the cross cleanses us of our sins (1 Jn. 1:7-9). We accept this free gift of salvation by obeying the necessary commandments of God. It is not our actions which save us, but our obedience which accepts God's free offer of salvation.
The Bible states that we must hear the Word of God in order to have faith (Rom. 10:17). When we hear the Word of God, we will believe in the truth and our faith will begin. Without faith or believing, it is impossible to please God (Heb. 11:6). When we truly believe in the truth and understand what God wants us to do, we will quickly repent of our sins, changing our heart and mind from the things of the world (Lk. 13:3; Acts 17:30). We will also realize that we must confess God before men (Matt. 10:32-33; Rom. 10:9-10). We will be baptized - immersed - in water for the remission of our sins (Acts 2:38; Mk. 16:16; Acts 22:16; 1 Pt. 3:21).
After baptism, we still must remain faithful to God and His commands in the New Testament so we will not fall prey to Satan (Rev. 2:10; Matt. 10:22; 1 Cor. 15:58). However, if we sin, we can turn from our sins in repentance (Acts 8:22), confess our sins to God and others (1 Jn. 1:9) and ask God for forgiveness (Jms. 5:16). Since we are Christians, we can be assured that we will be forgiven of these sins because of the continual cleansing of Christ's blood (1 Jn. 1:9).
