The Danger of Living in Disobedience

Date: September 20, 2020

“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

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

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

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!

Trusting God to the Very End

Date: August 9, 2020

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?

The Choice of a Lifetime

Date: August 2, 2020

During our lifetime we make thousands of choices. Some choices, like which shirt to wear, have little or no significance; while other choices, like who to marry, will affect the rest of our lives. But the Bible says there is one choice every person on earth has to make, and the result will either bring you life or death. The decision seems simple, but many people choose wrong every day. How will you answer this choice of a lifetime?

Our Refuge from the Storms of Life

Date: July 26, 2020

If you’ve ever been caught in a blinding rain storm while driving, the first thing you want to do is find shelter. Mountain climbers trapped by blizzards stand very little chance of surviving in sub-zero temperatures unless they can locate a place of safety and warmth. But where do you go when the storms of life overtake you? Do you have a place of refuge you can run to where you will always find strength and hope?

Are You Headed Toward Spiritual Excellence?

Date: July 19, 2020

If you were given the choice of living a mediocre life versus living an excellent life, you would most likely choose excellence. None of us want to live a mediocre life, but do we feel the same about our spiritual life? The Bible gives us some simple things we can begin doing that will lead us toward spiritual maturity and excellence, and you can start building them into your life today!

The Part of Worship We Tend to Ignore

Date: July 12, 2020

Out of all the commands God gives in the Bible, there is one in particular that people have a hard time hearing. Sermons about love, grace and mercy are welcomed, but any talk about money in the church is often met with resistance. God’s instructions about giving are not designed to constrain us. They will actually bring us freedom and joy! Are we willing to hear what God wants to teach us?

Destroying the Idols in Your Heart

Date: July 5, 2020

When God sent His people into the Promised Land, the first thing they had to do was to locate and completely destroy every place of idol worship. God knows that any temptation we leave intact in our life will entice us away from pure worship to Him. Are there any “idols” that you have set up in your heart that are disrupting your true worship of God?

Are You Committing Spiritual Adultery?

Date: June 21, 2020

Imagine a married couple saying how committed they are to each other, but then asking if they can still date other people. How disturbing that would be! Yet we often do the same thing as followers of Christ. We declare our total allegiance to Him while our hearts pursue idols of every kind. He has made it clear that He will not accept anything less than our total commitment. Are there any areas of your life that you still have not surrendered completely to Him?

Instructions for Life

Date: June 14, 2020

Did you ever try to assemble a complicated piece of furniture without using the instruction manual? When you’ve got five screws and a hinge left over, you realize you should have followed the directions. Messing up a home project may be bad, but it’s nothing compared to messing up your life! God has given us the Instruction Manual for life, and if we choose to ignore it, we don’t stand a chance. So, what are you using for your directions?
