What godly character traits and spiritual disciplines are you ‌building into your life today ‌that will enable you to ‌withstand the fiercest storms and finish strong for God? Unwavering resolve is not a result of spontaneous courage but a day-by-day commitment to walk in righteousness and integrity.

Start this transformative process today, because tomorrow’s trials are unpredictable, but your commitment to godly living can be unwavering if you have laid the right foundation.

Does the Most High God Rule Over You?

Date: October 22, 2023 | Speaker:

Deep within our human nature lurks a sinister force so powerful that, if left unchecked, will eventually take control of our life. It is deceptively easy to become entangled in the web of worldly attachments, be it possessions, relationships, ambitions, or social standing. We cling to these earthly treasures with such devotion that they can eventually occupy the throne of our heart. If this happens, God will have to strip away everything that is keeping us from Him; not to destroy us, but to humble and redeem us. By releasing our pride and yielding to God, we can find genuine fulfillment in His boundless love and goodness. Is there anything you are holding onto that is preventing God from being the only true King of your life?

The Way to True Greatness

Date: October 8, 2023 | Speaker:

To one degree or another, we all strive to be ‌the uncontested ruler of our own world. We are constantly told to get ahead and acquire as much as we can along the way. But building our own empire and seeking personal acclaim will ultimately lead us to a life of emptiness. Everything we have selfishly accumulated or achieved will one day slip through our fingers like sand. Instead, let us focus on building God’s kingdom, where we find genuine fulfillment, purpose, and lasting significance. It is in surrendering to His divine plan and inviting Him to rule over us that we discover the path to true greatness and a legacy that endures beyond our own lifetime.

Thriving in a Culture of Compromise

Date: October 1, 2023 | Speaker:

We are constantly bombarded with societal pressures and temptations that seek to undermine our faith. The world around us often encourages us to abandon our godly principles for momentary pleasures or worldly success. In those moments, remember that your identity is not defined by the opinions or expectations of others. It is rooted in your relationship with God and His unwavering love for you. When faced with pressure to compromise, choose righteousness over conformity. God will equip you with everything you need to remain faithful amidst any intimidation or trial!

A True Disciple Lives by Godly Convictions

Date: October 28, 2018 | Speaker:

“Renounce your faith in Christ and live, or else you will be put to death!” Countless believers have had to face that decision over the centuries. How would you respond if you were given that choice? Would your faith stand firm or would it crumble? The time to determine that is not then; it’s right now. What biblical convictions are you building into your life now that would enable you to walk through such a moment of crisis? Without those convictions in place, we will never be able to even live for Christ, much less die for Him!

Living By Faith – Pt. 2

Date: April 27, 2014 | Speaker:

There is an underlying principle at work in the lives of men and women who are known as giants of the faith. What is that principle? Is it something unique or is it simple? Is it their great faith that that establishes them as giants of the faith, or does living by faith mean something entirely different?

The Wise Men Fall Down

Date: December 24, 2013 | Speaker:

The events surrounding Jesus birth are so amazing when we pause and meditate on what took place. Specifically to focus our thoughts on the wise men and compare them with Harod and the Jewish Scribes, some interesting facts pop out. The wise men came to fall down before an infant; Harod was not willing to. What’s so significant about falling down? Have we fallen down before Jesus?

Perfectly Pure

Date: August 18, 2013 | Speaker:

God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all. He is perfectly pure; altogether, in himself complete. He is altogether Righteous; altogether Just; altogether Good. He has revealed himself to us in various ways, but in order to understand that revelation, we must be humble before the Lord; for God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.

Having the Guts to Be Who God Wants You to Be

Date: January 9, 2011 | Speaker:

2009 and 2010 have been years of dramatic economic decline, collapsing financial institutions, staggering job loss and shrinking retirement accounts. People’s hearts are filled with fear and anxiety, wondering what the future holds. As we step into 2011, is it possible — even thinkable — that we could face this shaky new year with an unshakeable faith?

Refusing to Conform

Date: October 10, 2010 | Speaker:

There was a time in our nation’s history when Christians were respected by the general public, but now Christians are are portrayed either as extremists or as complete idiots by the media, with no real “respect” at all. Is it perhaps because we have lost our Godly influence by conforming to the world’s standards instead of truly standing out and making a difference? God’s Word calls us to transform our culture rather than being conformed by it. Are you a conformer or a transformer?

A God Worth Trusting

Date: January 13, 2008 | Speaker:

As we go through life, we all experience what it’s like to have our trust broken — in relationships, in business deals, through false advertising — and the list goes on. We quickly learn that trust is a very fragile thing that is as easily broken as a spider’s web. All those experiences teach us to become cautious, even skeptical of others. And then along comes God, and the very first thing He asks us to do is to put our trust in Him! But how can we know for sure that God is worth trusting; that He won’t let us down like others have?
