I feel bad saying this, but your fonts are bad, colours are bad and mismatched. Look around on the internet and make it look more tight.

NExt time...web design section
That out of the way, it's bad...real bad.
Not that it can't be fixed. Proper English on the forums usually goes a long way as well.
A website requires a bit more than throwing things together. It's almost like homework. You really need to sit down and map out what you want to do with your site. You need the idea for the content first of all. If you're going to do your website on beans, you need to know that you're going to do that from the start or by the time that you get the site together and then come up with an idea, you're either going to have a really pieced together and clumsy site or you're going to have to tear everything down and start over.
Large moving graphics suck. Flashing things suck. Colors that clash suck.
You want to make it as pleasing to the eye as possible and as easy to navigate as possible. If some one sees your site and they don't like the colors, they leave. It's that simple. It probably takes the average person about 5-10 seconds to make up thier mind whether they want to read what's there or hit the large red 'X' in the corner of the Safari browser.
So, my recommendation is to think of an idea first, then sit down with paper and literally draw out your site and what you want to do with it. It'll help tremendously with the layout. Then when you're done, start thinking of an overall design theme and colors that you want to go with that don't clash and aren' bad on the eye.
hint: Neon green and brown do not match

I agree.... I have been doing websites for a longtime... One thing I have learned is technical skill is not enough, you need alot of design to make a website pleaseing to the eye...
Go look at other sites research a little more then try it again, also I recommend style sheets, and stick with 2 basic fonts especially on the body copy... hope this helps

it's flat, add some dimension to it (shadows on the font etc.)For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 1Cor 1:18
