Sermons from Philippians

Alive for a Reason

Date: January 15, 2023 | Speaker:

Do you ever wonder why you’re here on this earth; why God is keeping you alive, and whether or not there is really any purpose to it all? Yes, the daily grind of life can sometimes feel like a pointless, monotonous routine, but the fact is, there’s much more to this life—to your life—than meets the eye. Regardless of who you are, where you live, your education, your occupation or your level of influence, you are still living and breathing for one reason: God has an assignment for you! You were saved, not as the final step in your spiritual journey, but as the first step to a mission God has created for you to carry out. Wherever God has placed you, He wants you to be a living testimony for Him right there, touching others with His love and pointing them to Him. The only question is, are you willing to accept your assignment and faithfully carry it out?

The Cost of the Incarnation

Date: December 11, 2022 | Speaker:

Imagine how shocked we would be to hear that all the world’s richest, most powerful people had abandoned their fortunes and moved into the worst part of town without even a penny to their name! We simply couldn’t imagine anyone doing that, and yet, someone actually did. When Jesus came to earth to rescue mankind from sin, He had to lay aside His glory and splendor, and He had to exchange His royal title as the Son of God to be called a lowly Son of man. He lived a life of poverty, ridicule and rejection, and in the end was put to death like a criminal. It cost Him everything to die for us… is it costing us anything to live for Him?

God’s Faithfulness in Our Failures

Date: July 25, 2021 | Speaker:

Behind every victory and every success lies a hidden danger. These euphoric experiences tend to lull us into a false sense of security, causing us to let down our guard and coast on the momentum of those mountaintop moments. It’s then that we become vulnerable to attacks from the enemy and often find ourselves plunging from the highest peak of triumph to the lowest valley of despair. Learn how tenderly God deals with us in our worst times of defeat and discouragement, and find the hope and renewal you need in Him.

Turning and Trusting – Part 2

Date: May 9, 2021 | Speaker:

The Bible tells us that those who trust in God are “blessed”. However, trusting in God during uncertain times can be difficult. Jeremiah 17 reminds us that God has provided us with everything we need to trust in Him and when we stay connected to Him during challenging times, God uses us to impact the lives of those around us and to ultimately bring Him glory. God is worthy and able to carry us through whatever journey we are on. Are you trusting in Him today?

The Believer’s Position in the Grace of God

Date: January 3, 2021 | Speaker:

How many good works does it take to earn salvation? How clean do you have to make yourself before God will accept you? The fact is, salvation cannot be earned. Salvation is a gift from God, given out of His great love, mercy and grace to all who believe. It is only through faith in Christ Jesus that we can be transformed from death to life, from darkness to light, from hopelessness to having the unshakable certainty of eternity in heaven! Have you ever trusted in Christ to save you, or are you still trying to earn it?

Biblical Unity

Date: June 9, 2019 | Speaker:

Divisions, arguing and fighting have not only destroyed families, but churches, and even entire governments. The Bible says, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” As the Body of Christ, we have been called to function together in oneness of mind and spirit, united by His Word. We must lay our own desires aside and put Christ above all, using our different spiritual gifts to make the Body whole and healthy.

Straining Forward

Date: December 30, 2018 | Speaker:

Whether it’s a new year or a new day, our thoughts and conduct should have one focus… “forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead”. These are some of the words the Apostle Paul writes to believers on how we should pattern our lives. Join us for this encouraging message of hope for those who choose to walk in this way.

The Gifts of Christmas

The Gift of Salvation

Date: December 23, 2018 | Speaker:

You have probably received some strange gifts at different times in your life; things that ended up in a closet or in the attic because you simply had no use for them. But once in a while you get a gift that seems perfectly suited for you. When Jesus came into the world, He brought us the costliest, most thoughtful and most practical gift ever given — the gift of salvation. It is the one gift you cannot afford to live without, or die without! He is offering it to you today. Have you ever received it?

Sticking Together in Hard Times

Date: July 16, 2017 | Speaker:

As we face the trials and hardships of life, we must not face them alone. Some Christians think they can separate themselves from the Body of Christ and still survive, but the notion of individual Christianity is not found anywhere in the Bible. Peter gives us vital instructions on how to stick together when life tries to tear us apart, and when we do, our lives will bring glory to God. Make sure you are not trying to do life alone!

Are We Bold?

Date: September 18, 2016 | Speaker:

Have you ever wondered why people use the name of Jesus as a curse word 2,000 years after He lived and died? Why do they never curse using anyone else’s name? It’s because all the powers of darkness are trying to stamp out the very name of Jesus! In fact, they are trying to rid the world of Him completely. In a time when the voices of evil are growing louder and stronger, we need to stand boldly for Jesus!

Sustained Through Humility

Date: June 12, 2016 | Speaker:

Jesus Christ is a great man. He is wise, compassionate, gentle, approachable, loving, caring. As a man he is top of the charts for a potential husband. He is the Son of God and is one with his Father. His bride, the church, is made up of people, but what kind of people? And how does Jesus show his love for his bride?

 

Our Highest Goal for the New Year

Date: January 3, 2016 | Speaker:

What would you do differently if you knew you only had one year to live? This is not a hypothetical question. What if you really knew your life would end one year from today? What plans would you change, what relationships would you mend, what values would you embrace? Now, imagine the kind of difference your life could make if you started living that way today!
