Learning to See How God Sees

Date: February 14, 2021 | Speaker:

Have you ever met someone for the first time and then discovered later that you had unfairly misjudged them based solely on what you saw? We tend to judge people by what we see on the outside, but God warns us that this is wrong. What matters most to God is on the inside, because who we really are flows out of the condition of our heart. So, are we more concerned with how we look on the outside than how we look on the inside?

Preparing for What’s Ahead

Date: December 27, 2020 | Speaker:

Most will agree, this past year was a challenge. No one could predict the kind of events and trials many have faced. But thankfully, none took God by surprise. Even before Jesus came into this world, God made it clear the kind of Savior He would be. It was His mission to save us and provide everything we need to not only survive but thrive among the trials and tribulations of this darkening world. Join us as we recognize the battles that wage war around us, and the weapons and strategies available to us to not only stand firm but even take back ground that may have been lost.

Christmas: The Wonder of HOW

Date: December 13, 2020 | Speaker:

If you and I had planned the birth of Jesus, we would have made sure He was born into a royal family, that He had the best medical care, the most comfortable surroundings, and that His birth was announced to famous, influential people. But God chose for His Son to be born into the lowliest of conditions, surrounded by poverty and hardship, and overlooked by almost everyone. In doing this, God was teaching us a life-changing lesson that will forever change the meaning of Christmas!

The Call to Discipleship

Date: October 25, 2020 | Speaker:

When Jesus calls us to follow Him and become His disciple, He requires nothing less than a total commitment. He said that everyone who would follow Him must deny themselves, take up their cross and follow Him. We cannot negotiate the terms of this call. We must be willing to sign a blank contract and let Him fill in the terms later. Are you following Jesus with this kind of total commitment, or are you still holding some areas of your life back from Him?

An Extraordinary Response to an Intentional Encounter Part 2

Date: August 23, 2020 | Speaker:

Levi had left everything to follow Jesus and subsequently held a great banquet to introduce his friends to Jesus. Although Matthew may not have known everything about following Jesus, Matthew did understand that who he knew (Jesus) was more important than what he knew. Matthew found a way to bring hope to his friends. Are there people in your life who need to know the hope that Jesus brings?

An Extraordinary Response to an Intentional Encounter Part 1

Date: August 16, 2020 | Speaker:

As a tax collector, Levi was an unlikely candidate for the gospel. However, Jesus had a plan to further His Kingdom and that plan included Levi. When Christ came calling, Levi trusted Christ and obeyed Him. In these uncertain times, God is still calling unlikely candidates to trust and obey Him so that His name might be exalted. How is God calling you today?

But Take Heart

Date: February 16, 2020 | Speaker:

Life in this world can be difficult. Jesus knew this better than anyone, and he did not try to paint an unrealistic picture for His followers. But He also puts these difficulties in proper perspective. When trials and sorrows come our way, we should remember what He says! Listen and be encouraged by the hope Jesus brings to those who remain in Him.

Christmas Addresses Our Biggest Need

Date: December 22, 2019 | Speaker:

We were created to glorify God with every thought, every word and every action. But our sin has caused us to glorify other things more than we glorify God. As a result, we have lost peace with God, which robs us of peace within, which destroys our peace with others. That baby in the manger came to restore this broken peace with God so that we could once again have peace within and peace with others. and to give us a new heart that would desire to glorify Him above everything else.

A Call to Remember

Date: March 17, 2019 | Speaker:

Jesus greatly anticipated His last Passover meal with His disciples. The Passover meal itself was to remember something very important, and it was in this setting that Jesus announced to His disciples the New Covenant, one to replace the old, a covenant that would be confirmed with His own blood. Again and again Scripture tells us to remember what happened concerning the old covenant and to remember this new and better covenant that God now offers to us. Listen as we take a closer look at some of what Scripture tells us concerning these things we are to remember.

Can We Trust the Bible?

Date: January 6, 2019 | Speaker:

Do you believe the Bible is really a supernatural book inspired by God? If so, why do you believe that? Is it just because that’s what you were taught growing up, but you’ve never examined it for yourself? Are you absolutely certain that the Bible is true and trustworthy? Today we explore some of the amazing historical and scientific evidence that demonstrates the Divine authorship of this incredible Book, and you’ll have even more reasons to know that you really can trust the Bible!

A True Disciple Makes Disciples

Date: November 4, 2018 | Speaker:

In church circles, we often repeat Jesus’ command to “Go and make disciples.” We’re familiar with the phrase, but what about the meaning? What does it mean to be a disciple? And how do we go about making disciples? In our culture today, we more often use the title of “Christian” than disciple, but does it convey the same meaning? Listen as we unpack these powerful words of Jesus, and take a glimpse at what’s included in this final imperative from Him.

Blessed are the Poor in Spirit

Date: July 8, 2018 | Speaker:

Gaining entrance into heaven cannot be earned by our own efforts or goodness. We become part of God’s kingdom only when we recognize and admit that we are totally bankrupt spiritually, and that we are utterly dependent upon God’s mercy and grace to save us. Being poor in spirit is not a quality the world admires, but everyone who humbles themselves in this way and receives the forgiveness of the cross is blessed by God with the promise of eternal life.
