Making Christ Known (Part 2)

by

This message continues to examine the visit Paul had to Athens, Greece, a culture living opposed to the message he was preaching. In his attempt to share the message of Christ with the philosophers of the day, Paul built a bridge into their life so that his message might be heard. His approach gives believers […]

Making Christ Known (Part 1)

by

If you have ever been discouraged by the decline of morality in our society or by the apathy many seem to have for God and His Word, you’re in good company. The apostle Paul was confronted with such cultures too; however it was worse for him! In this message we look at Paul’s visit to […]

The Greatest Miracle of All

by

Skepticism is common among people today…and rightly so because counterfeit and fake permeate many aspects of our culture. So when approaching the claims of the Bible, it causes people to question its validity as well. In this message we examine secular/non-Christian documents about Jesus. What we find only supports the claims of the Bible. This […]

Good Friday Service

by

This message looks back at the cross and reflects on the great sacrifice made at the cross. For the believer, a couple of questions are raised in Romans 8:31-39. If God is for us, who can be against us (vv. 31)? What can separate us from the love of Christ (vv. 35)? In this message […]

Obscurity in the Miraculous

by

Do you ever get so focused on how you believe God is supposed to work in your life that you actually miss what God is doing in your life?  When we think about miracles Jesus performed, our minds naturally gravitate towards the “big” ones – walking on water, multiplying food, or making cripples walk.  While […]

Getting Out of the Boat

by

In this message, we look at another encounter the disciples had with a storm…only this time Jesus was not in the boat. After witnessing the feeding of the 5,000, Jesus made the disciples get in a boat and cross over the Sea of Galilee. During the night, they were hit with a storm, and then […]

He’s in the Boat

by

Life is difficult for all people, regardless of their religious beliefs. Mark 4:35-41 describes a hardship the disciples encountered. While passing across the Sea of Galilee, they were hit by a storm. It was so great they feared for their life. Finally, at their wits’ end, they called out to Jesus who got up from […]

Life Is In Jesus

by

This message is the conclusion of the book of 1 John. In the final chapter, John tells the reader that there are three who testify that Jesus is the Son of God. Those John calls to the witness stand are rather unusual. Listen in! But the testimony is the same: Jesus is the Son of […]

Overcomer – 1 John

by

In light of difficulty that life brings, you may not always feel like an overcomer. But if you have a relationship with God, through Jesus, the writer of 1 John says you are an overcomer. An overcomer’s heart is drawn to love the One who enables him/her to overcome. Love is demonstrated by obedience to […]

God’s Love for Us – 1 John

by

The Bible tells us in the book of 1 John that God is love. God’s love was demonstrated to humanity even though humanity didn’t love God. Paul writes in the book of Ephesians that because God does not tolerate sin, those who do nothing about their sin are objects of God’s wrath (2:1-4). This is […]

Love One Another – 1 John

by

Loving one another is evidence of an inner change that has taken place. A relationship with God impacts all other relationships. But personal guilt can lead to resentment of others and even hatred. In 1 John 3, we are drawn to the example of Christ who willingly laid down His life for others. Our relationship […]

Be Careful Who You Listen To – 1 John

by

There are plenty of voices speaking into our lives on a daily basis. As believers in Jesus we must be careful to discern what voices are actually true verses voices that simply sound true. The enemy is clever and extremely subtle. First John 2:18-27 warns believers about the spirit and mindset of the antichrist, which […]
