Sermons about Faithfulness

So Close But So Far Away

Date: July 7, 2019 | Speaker:

We cringe when we hear about the heir who inherited a fortune and squandered it all, or the person who was entrusted to carry on a famous legacy, only to soil the family name in disgrace. Sometimes people can literally be surrounded by things that others only dream of, yet fail to do anything worthwhile with them. Today we see a young man who grew up in the presence of God’s covenant promises, but he chose to mock it and walk away from it all.

How Long Will You Wait for God?

Date: June 23, 2019 | Speaker:

Waiting. It is no one’s favorite thing to do. We wait in traffic, in stores, at doctor’s offices. We wait for our vacation days to get here, children wait eagerly for Christmas morning… it seems we spend a lot of our life waiting. But have you ever waited 24 years for anything? God promised that He would do certain things for Abram, but 24 years later, Abram was still waiting! Today we discover some things Abram learned through this experience that can help us in our own waiting.

It’s Time to Stop and Build an Altar

Date: March 31, 2019 | Speaker:

The first thing Noah and his family did when the flood ended was to build an altar and give thanks to God for delivering them. Altars were piles of rocks that also served as reminders of God’s faithfulness to future generations. When is the last time you stopped and “built an altar” in some way to give God thanks for His goodness to you, or to serve as a memorial to your family of God’s faithfulness? Why not make time to do it this week. You’ll be amazed at the impact it will have on your life and on the lives of those around you!

A Call to Remember

Date: March 17, 2019 | Speaker:

Jesus greatly anticipated His last Passover meal with His disciples. The Passover meal itself was to remember something very important, and it was in this setting that Jesus announced to His disciples the New Covenant, one to replace the old, a covenant that would be confirmed with His own blood. Again and again Scripture tells us to remember what happened concerning the old covenant and to remember this new and better covenant that God now offers to us. Listen as we take a closer look at some of what Scripture tells us concerning these things we are to remember.

Walking with God in a Corrupt World

Date: March 10, 2019 | Speaker:

Are you outnumbered by people at work, at school, or even at home who don’t share your faith? Is your environment filled with foul language, immoral behavior and jokes about Christianity? You’re not the first person to stand for God in an evil world. Today we discover one man who stood out from everyone on earth because he chose to walk daily with God rather than be numbered with unbelievers, and we still remember his name to this very day! Keep standing firm right where you are. God sees and He will remember you!

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.

A True Disciple Lives by Godly Convictions

Date: October 28, 2018 | Speaker:

“Renounce your faith in Christ and live, or else you will be put to death!” Countless believers have had to face that decision over the centuries. How would you respond if you were given that choice? Would your faith stand firm or would it crumble? The time to determine that is not then; it’s right now. What biblical convictions are you building into your life now that would enable you to walk through such a moment of crisis? Without those convictions in place, we will never be able to even live for Christ, much less die for Him!

The Truth Will Set You Free

Our Faithful God of Covenants

Date: April 22, 2018 | Speaker:

If we want to really know God, then we must gain a better understanding of “covenant”. When God establishes a binding relationship to His people, He does it through offering a covenant with them. Listen as we begin to unpack the meaning of covenant and take a closer look at God’s covenants with His people.

Giving Thanks for God’s Goodness

Date: November 26, 2017 | Speaker:

We use the word “good” to describe all kinds of things from food, to events, even the weather. It has become such an overused and common word that when the Bible describes God as being good, it doesn’t really impact us. Yet if we stop to truly consider all the ways God’s goodness has transformed our lives, we will be overwhelmed with thankfulness for who He is and for all He has done for us!

Remembering God’s Deliverance

Date: November 5, 2017 | Speaker:

We humans are very good at forgetting things, and the more time that passes, the easier it is for old memories to fade away. This is why God told His people constantly to stop and remember what He had done for them, and to pass those memories on to future generations. When is the last time you intentionally stopped to remember and celebrate something good God had done for you or your family? Why not do it today?

Are You Following the Right Leaders?

Date: July 30, 2017 | Speaker:

Ask different people what they think about pastors and you’ll hear everything from, “I love my pastor” to, “They’re all a bunch of phonies!” How is it that church leaders have earned such a wide range of responses from people, and what standards can you use to determine whether you are being led by the right kind of leaders?

What Suffering is Designed to Do

Date: July 2, 2017 | Speaker:

Human reasoning would have us believe that if God really loved us, He would protect us from all pain, heartache and suffering. It is vital, then, that we do not face the hardships of life with human reasoning, but rather, with the mind of Christ. What attitude did Christ have when He endured all the physical and emotional suffering that came His way, and what can we learn by having that same attitude?
