What Gives God the Right to Judge Me?

Date: June 30, 2019 | Speaker:

Maybe you’ve heard someone say, “If God is loving and kind, He would never judge anyone!” That may sound logical, but those same people cry out for justice and judgement the instant their child or spouse falls victim to a terrible crime. Their actions prove that wrong doing and evil must be judged. The lack of justice is, itself, wrong. Today we look at the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and see why judgement had to fall. But we also see that God’s desire to save is far greater than His desire to punish!

In the Beginning, God…

Date: January 20, 2019 | Speaker:

To believe anything in the Bible, you must believe the very first verse in the Bible. A person who does not believe Genesis 1:1 will never believe the rest of the Bible. This opening statement declares boldly that there is, in fact, one true God who has existed forever, who created everything, and who therefore owns everything, including our lives. This single sentence, “In the beginning, God created…” makes it clear that we are not here by random chance; that our lives do have extraordinary meaning, value and purpose, and that there actually is a higher Authority to whom we must answer. Have you ever come to terms with this truth?

How the Bible Defies the Odds

Date: January 13, 2019 | Speaker:

Take 40 people to the library and tell them to choose any books they want. Some people must choose more than one so that there are 66 books in all. What are the odds that all 66 books would be in agreement and form one continuous story? It is statistically impossible! The 66 books of the Bible were written by 40 authors from diverse backgrounds, living over a period of about 1,500 years, and yet when all 66 books are brought together, they form one complete, unified story from beginning to end. This is just more evidence confirming the Divine authorship of this amazing Book.

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!

Questions & Answers

Date: June 25, 2017 | Speaker:

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 | Speaker:

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.

Living a Life That Raises Questions

Date: May 21, 2017 | Speaker:

If Jesus is Lord of your life, people around you will begin asking questions about why you live the way you do. In those moments, you don’t have to know every answer about Christianity. You don’t need a seminary degree. You just need to tell them your story — how Jesus has changed your life and given you hope. Yes, it’s true, your simple story can bring hope to others and help point them to Jesus!

Our Glorious Privilege as Christians

Date: March 5, 2017 | Speaker:

Why did God save us and then leave us here? Is it just to sit through boring church services every Sunday; give part of our hard-earned paycheck away; obey a long list of religious rules, and be forced to serve in the children’s ministry? Well, if that’s your view of the Christian life, we’ve got good news for you! God has a much more noble purpose for your life than that, and you’ll discover it in today’s message.

Mighty God

Date: December 11, 2016 | Speaker:

Exactly who was that baby born in Bethlehem? Was He really sent from heaven, or was He just an ordinary man, and what difference does it make either way? The Bible calls Him the Mighty God. If that’s true, then the consequences for not believing in Him are enormous! What decision have you made about that baby in the manger?

Responding to God’s Blessings

Date: November 13, 2016 | Speaker:

There’s no denying it — God has blessed us beyond belief! We have received so much from His hands. But why? Why has He blessed us and what are we supposed to do with those blessings? Are we supposed to keep them all for ourselves, or does God have a bigger purpose in mind? Once we learn this important principle, we will discover the real definition of what it means to be blessed.

Recognizing God’s Blessings

Date: October 30, 2016 | Speaker:

How many blessings have you been given? Our first reaction to that question might be to think, “Compared to whom?” But regardless of our circumstances, we are the recipients of more blessings than we could possibly imagine. God’s goodness to us never ends. He continuously blesses us with countless physical and spiritual blessings in every area of our lives. If we would just open our eyes, we would see that we truly are blessed beyond belief!

Are We Devoted?

Date: September 11, 2016 | Speaker:

Ask people to describe their church and see how many different answers you get. “We have a beautiful building… we have awesome programs… it’s a lot of fun!” But when we look at the very first thing the Bible says about the church, we see a totally different description. They were people who were devoted to the right things. So the question is, are we also devoted to the right things?
