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.

Honor Your Mother and Father

Sunday, May 8, 2016

A Biblical view of women is very different from the views found today in Middle Eastern and Mohammedan cultures. They often occupy leading public positions (Exodus 15:19-21; Judges 4:4-5). Scripture doesn't just say, "Honor your Father". It says, "Honor your Father and Mother." We will also take the time and value God’s word and honor our mothers in a way that glorifies our God.

Ultimately It Is Not Missions, It Is Worship

Sunday, May 1, 2016

Worship is why we do what we do, not to follow the letter of the law. I want to firmly state we do not do missions simply because it it the Christian thing to do. We do missions because missions is not just about missions, but worship.

​ 143 Words of Concentrated Christianity

Monday, April 25, 2016

Recently my soul was stirred by a great classic hymn. In 143 words, this hymn beautifully delivers to our hearts the essence of our faith. So in this week's message we explore the big ideas of Christianity guided by this hymn: atonement, redemption, belief. Even if you don't like hymns, I think you'll be stirred by the message in this song. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.

Steps to Victory

Sunday, April 17, 2016

As believers, we battle many confusing issues. We see men and women who have walked with the Lord for years and then one day we hear that they have fallen into great sin or turned their back on the Lord. We also see ourselves struggle from time to time battling certain issues that seemed to be unshakable strongholds in our lives. We hear of dear brothers and sisters who say that that they are being harassed and plagued by extreme demonic influence. Many times when we hear this, we try to take a passive-aggressive approach. We acknowledge but we don’t acknowledge it for what it truly is.

What is Best?

Sunday, April 10, 2016

This week’s passage is like handling fine china...it must be handled with care.  In the passage, the Pharisees test Jesus by asking Him about lawful divorce.   Jesus aces the test by providing profound insight into marriage that is so applicable to us today.  Join us as we wrestle with a very pertinent issue in a careful and relevant way.

Beware of Toxic faith

Sunday, April 3, 2016

 “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.”

Sometimes, we forget about why God views sin so seriously. It's that unchecked sin in our heart will hurt our heart, cause us to be open to great deception and possibly cause others to fall away.

Let’s Talk About Jesus

Sunday, March 27, 2016

If you want to make people uncomfortable, make a statement like this: “Let’s talk about Jesus”. People can literally get offended at the mention of His name. Students have been expelled for talking about Him. People are literally mutilated and killed because they profess their belief in Him. 2 Corinthians 4:4 tells us "...the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers so they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”

Whose Kingdom is It?

Sunday, March 20, 2016

Because the ambitions of the Twelve put at risk their fellowship with Jesus, Jesus declared "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all.” With these words, Jesus redefines greatness. Real greatness means being great in things that matter to God. And nothing is greater in God’s eyes than giving sacrificially. And no vocation affords the opportunity to give more than being a servant. If the apostles failed to understand Jesus, what about us? Is our ambition any different from the apostles'?

I Will Rise; Do You Believe?

Sunday, March 13, 2016

Jesus told the disciples "I will die and rise for all humanity”. He spoke this to the disciples on three separate occasions.  On each occasion, each time He shared this, He re-worded it in such a way to expand the statement to make sure the disciples knew that this was His plan. That He would allow Himself to be delivered over to mankind by the Father to die for humanity but that He would not stay dead. He would rise! And even though He said this on three separate occasions, the disciples could not comprehend.

I Believe; Help Me With My Unbelief

Sunday, March 6, 2016

Have you ever asked God to give you more faith? Why not? Now, I am not talking about getting more biblical knowledge or becoming more religious. I am talking about trusting a supernatural God in a supernatural way. If it is biblical, it seems that it should be something we as believers should be doing quite often. If we do believe that it is biblical and we are not ever asking for more faith, we must ask the question why. We must ask ourselves the question of how do I obtain more faith and, if I did, what would it look like.
