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.

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.

How's Your Hearing?

Sunday, February 28, 2016

Every mother has approached her child putting her finger over their lips saying, “God gave you two ears but only one mouth... Listen to me.” This lesson still applies to every person and especially to Christians. The Christian’s struggle to hear and find direction is not because God is silent but rather if we are truly listening.  In this week's message, we examine the disciples’ lack of hearing and then check our own hearing through practical means.

The Mindset of the Disciple: Living the Hard Things

Sunday, February 21, 2016

We are entering the phase in our study of Mark where Jesus is preparing His disciples for His departure. Over the next several weeks, we will be tackling some uncomfortable areas, topics the church of today likes to avoid or, if covered, tread very lightly. Our heart is to revere and follow God. Though we may want to see Jesus as our warm cuddly friend, we must remember that He is a Loving, Holy, Righteous, Just God. He cares about us and disciplines those who belong to Him.

The Importance and Power of Unity

Sunday, February 14, 2016

“I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”

Jesus our Lord prayed these words to the Father on our behalf. Their significance shakes me to the core: for the world to know who He is, there must be unity among the brethren. In this week's message, we seek to hear clearly from our Lord His heart for unity and how we can achieve this.

The Problem of Evil

Sunday, February 7, 2016

In this week's message, Andy shares the seriousness of the problem of evil in the world, describing a life dealing with suffering like "driving through the fog at night". He shares a handful of points of light to help navigate the fog. May this message bring you hope and encouragement for your difficult days and for eternity.

Who Do You Say I Am?

Sunday, January 31, 2016

Why do we call someone "Mom" or "Dad"? We call them this because of how we recognize them and relate to them. With these names, we are saying "This is a person who loves me, cares for me and has parented me." If it is a healthy relationship, there are certain things that we can count on and trust with this person.

There is a lot said through the title that we give someone, but sometimes we say things with our mouth but our actions say something different. In this week's message, we explore who we say Jesus is, and how this impacts our belief and our church.

How's your Vision?

Sunday, January 24, 2016

One of the most dangerous people is a driver with foggy vision.  Equally dangerous is a Christian with foggy vision concerning God.  In this week's message, we will follow an "unusual" healing of a blind man and conduct a spiritual vision check-up by examining the nature of Christ and the events that fog our vision.

The Beautification of Christ's Bride (part 2)

Sunday, January 17, 2016

This week I have had several conversations regarding devotion and fellowship. Several thoughts and questions were raised. Family, if we want to encounter God and be His vessel, we must make sure we hear and understand what He is saying to us. We must figure out how to transfer from the hearing to the doing. Let's get this right. This is a very critical time in the history of our country and world. In part two of the series "The Beautification of Christ's Bride", we discover how devotion and fellowship help us become the beautiful bride that Christ has purposed us to be.
