Questions & Answers

Date: June 25, 2017

God’s truth is wonderful to hear and be encouraged by, but it is even better to apply those truths to real situations. This session builds on the principles we established the previous week by applying them to real questions that a lost world is asking. Listen as we go step by step and discuss how to respond to those questions in a thoughtful and Christ-honoring way which communicates not only the Truth of God, but also the Heart of God.

Engaging a World that is Hostile to Your Faith

Date: June 18, 2017

Every now and then, you will come across someone who feels the freedom to be confrontational when they find out that you are a Christian. They may ask you a loaded question or raise an objection that challenges your beliefs. This message is designed to encourage you with some key reminders about the awesome God you worship and the solid foundation on which your faith rests. It will also help you to be more thoughtful before responding in those highly charged encounters. Lastly, it will remind you that our Lord Jesus was also confronted by a hostile culture, and we can look to His example of how to respond with humble, quiet confidence.

The Fool and His Folly

Date: January 19, 2014

In our generation today, as always, we need to clearly understand the truth. We need to understand who we are talking to when we are discussing Jesus Christ with unbelievers. We also need to know what assumptions they are making when they say things like, “All religions are basically the same,” or “No one can know for sure,” or “That’s just your interpretation!” There are certain assumptions being made at the foundation of these arguments against the gospel. When we shed light on these falsely assumed foundations, the truth can be seen more clearly.

The Christmas Attitude

Date: December 15, 2013

Christmas, as a season, is full of many emotions and attitudes. It is the one time of year when it is acceptable to talk about Jesus. Knowing the reality of the circumstances surrounding Christmas, we also find that the truth cannot be silenced. It is far too easy to be caught up in the commercialism, materialism and worldliness that is so evident this time of year; either being swept away in its current or being embittered towards it. Which attitude do you currently own?

Heart of the Unbeliever

Date: November 10, 2013

When it comes to war, it is vitally important to know the enemy. When it comes to spreading the gospel message, we also need to know what we’re up against. We need to understand how an unbeliever thinks. What is actually going on in their heart when they say, “I don’t believe in God.” Are they pleading ignorance? Do they need further proof?

No Fear In Love

Date: September 15, 2013

The Bible says there is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. We live our lives in fear… fear of public speaking, losing control of situations, losing our job, having our inabilities found out, fear of the unknown, fear of confrontation, even death. If you are afraid, you have not allowed God to love you. We must accept God’s love on His terms and allow His love to drive out fear.
