All human beings who have ever been born were created to love God. In fact, the greatest command of all is to love God, but instead, we have replaced that love for God with love of self. As a result, we no longer find delight in living for Him, but rather, we live for ourselves and willfully step over His boundaries. Since we are all sinful, it is impossible for us to restore our broken relationship with God on our own, so God sent His Son to do what we could not do, and to rescue us.

Five Fools in America

Date: October 11, 2020 | Speaker:

No one likes to be called a fool. Sometimes that word is used in a hurtful sense to simply belittle another person, but there are five kinds of people that God actually does identify as fools. In the world’s eyes, these people may be successful, powerful, admired and influential; but in God’s eyes they are fools. Do you know what thoughts, attitudes and actions qualify a person as a fool, so that you can make sure you are not listed in that category?

When Victory is Followed by Defeat

Date: October 4, 2020 | Speaker:

Throughout history, many victories on the battlefield have been immediately followed by crushing defeat. This is a syndrome called Victory Disease. It is brought on when the euphoria of winning dulls the senses and creates a feeling of invincibility. The same thing happens in the Christian life. We’re standing one day and crawling the next. We must never let down our guard, especially in moments of triumph.

Seek the Lord While He May Be Found

Date: September 27, 2020 | Speaker:

How long can a person continue ignoring God and pursuing sin before judgement comes? Throughout the Bible we see the incredible patience of God towards those who keep turning away from Him. He gives them many opportunities to repent, but the clock is ticking on His patience, and one day it will end. Are you still running from God? Call on Him today before it’s too late!

The Danger of Living in Disobedience

Date: September 20, 2020 | Speaker:

“It’s just a small sin… it’s no big deal!” We are so quick to convince ourselves that God is willing to tolerate our sin, as long as we are still going to church, giving some money, and doing religious things. But even the smallest amount of known sin in our lives contaminates our entire relationship with God, just as a small amount of poison contaminates an entire glass of water. Are there areas of disobedience in your life that you have been tolerating? Bring them to God today!

Don’t Wait for a Better Time to Follow God

Date: September 13, 2020 | Speaker:

It’s easy to follow God when you don’t have to risk anything; when you’re healthy; when you’ve got money; when there’s no trouble in sight. But God calls us to follow Him when our strength is failing; when there’s no money; when the path ahead is filled with obstacles. Has God already called you to obey Him in some area, but you’re waiting for a better time? Right now is the time to step out and follow Him by faith!

Don’t Let Your Sin Keep You From God

Date: September 6, 2020 | Speaker:

If you’ve ever thought that God would never accept you because you have sinned too much, then you are believing a lie. Your sin, no matter how awful it may be, is no match for the blood of Christ! Today’s message shows us how a woman named Rahab, who was looked down on by everyone because of her sin, found forgiveness, salvation and hope because she believed by faith. Don’t let your sin keep you from God!

Following God in Days of Uncertainty

Date: August 30, 2020 | Speaker:

What do you do when some traumatic event has left you shaken, broken, and filled with worry? What do you do when the future looks so overwhelming that fear paralyzes you from moving forward? The same help that God gave to Joshua is available to you right now. Yes, you can continue following God, even in days of uncertainty!

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?

Trusting God to the Very End

Date: August 9, 2020 | Speaker:

Imagine being told that you only had a few days to live. That would be very difficult for anyone to hear! That’s exactly what happened to Moses, and we can learn some crucial lessons from the way he responded to that news. Do we know what it takes to trust God so much that, like Moses, we will trust Him right up to the very end?
