Messages

The Sunday morning church service is when the whole church gathers together to worship God by singing to Him, giving of the time, money, and skill He has graced us with, and receiving a message delivered by a man who senses God's call to preach and teach the message of the Bible.

We record the audio of the sermons during each service and post it over on SoundCloud. This web page provides links to the sermon audio as well as to correlating materials you can use for further research and for group study in your small group.

Five Keys to Revival Part 4

Sunday, October 23, 2016

In this week's message, we look at the final of the “Five Keys to Revival”. Once we unpack this last and vital key we will also connect all the dots showing the practical steps of how to walk out all of these keys. We do not manipulate God into revival. Instead, we'll see in His Word how to know where He is moving His people into a time of revival and what our own response must be in order to experience it.

Running the Race

Sunday, October 16, 2016

On Sunday, we are discussing the "P" word... In difficult times, believers can struggle with temptation, doubt, trusting God and especially Perseverance.  This Sunday we will discuss the "3Rs" to perseverance as we examine practical advice found in Hebrews 12: Remember. Remove. Refocus.

Five Keys to Revival Part 3: Be Connected

Sunday, October 9, 2016

If we simply open our eyes we can see that our community, our country and our world is in desperate need of true revival. This message is designed to have a significant impact on our lives and the lives of others if we truly heed this word that our Lord is speaking to us. This week, we recap the previous two keys (death to self, absurd obedience to the Word of God) and look at the third key: just as sinews connect the parts of our physical body, we must be connected to each other.

Key Steps to Revival

Sunday, October 2, 2016

This Sunday we are once again going back to Ezekiel 37 to unpack it a little more. This passage is designed to be an encouragement to all believers and a litmus test to us as well. This book and this passage helps us to see who we are and where we spiritually as well as where we need to be spiritually. It also gives a clear process of what it takes to be alive. Church we must never settle for less than God’s best. It my goal as your pastor to position us in such a place where we come into the experience of true life; because true life changes the world.

The Power of the Spoken Word

Sunday, September 11, 2016

“Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never harm me.”

Despite what this phrase may suggest, modern studies show that verbal abuse can actually have long-lasting psychological effects, which may sometimes manifest in physical ways. Wounding words do not necessarily have to come exclusively from bullies. They can also come from friends, family members and loved ones, according to Psychology Today. Just like there is no single defining type of verbal abuse, there is no single defining stereotype of a verbal abuser.

What We Can Learn from a Fired Manager

Sunday, September 4, 2016

Pastor Michael is out on a well-deserved vacation this week, so one of our elders, Andy Sharples, will be preaching. The title of his sermon is What We Can Learn from a Fired Manager. Andy is sharing the story Jesus told of the comeback of the dishonest manager found in Luke 16:1-9. This story teaches us that, while love is the hallmark of true Christianity, one thing Christians need is to be more ______. Join us for a fascinating and helpful look at a passage that's often misunderstood. (Know what goes in the blank? Get the discussion started: tweet it, and be sure to @southbcpeople!)

What are you aiming for?

Sunday, August 21, 2016

This Sunday we will be discussing in detail the importance of vision. Many of us feel like we have a handle on vision, but sometimes we lack understanding in aspects of our life that should have vision. Our lives are riddled with lack of vision. If you are feeling like a failure, or feeling lost and confused, I want to encourage you to take care. I am firmly convinced that no matter where you are or what you have done, if you surrender to the visions that God has purposed for you, you will succeed.
