Colossians 3: 1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
This world will fight till its dying breath to own your thoughts, affections and aspirations. It’s not mindful of eternal glory nor cares anything for heaven’s rewards but God offers better.
Paul says with intensity, “seek” and “set” your heart and mind on that which is to come not on this world. By doing so we live above the cares and concerns of this life by dwelling on “Things Above”.

Pastor John Durante spent years of his life looking for meaningful purpose worth living for. Having sought fulfillment thru a self-oriented lifestyle of surfing, snowboarding and skateboarding he turned back to God out of frustration and there found peace and purpose. Finally after Bible College, various serving roles at churches in CA, HI and AZ, in December 2007, Pastor John and his wife Christina met with 7 people in their living room right here in Point Pleasant Beach. Today those 7 people represent the humble beginnings of Jersey Shore Calvary Chapel.
