Sermons about Forgiveness

How Far Do I Have to Climb?

Date: June 28, 2020 | Speaker:

The most famous mountain in the world is Mt. Everest. People are drawn to it from all over the world, and more than 300 of them have died trying to reach the summit. But there is another hill just outside Jerusalem called the place of the skull or the hill of death. That is where Jesus died for the sins of the world, and in order to be saved, you do not have to climb that hill… all you need to do is bow at His feet and receive Him as your Savior.

The Cure for the Curse of Sin

Date: May 24, 2020 | Speaker:

Every religion around the world has a list of different things a person has to do in order to get to heaven. Some have to pray a certain number of times every day, others have to chant mantras, while others have to perform a lifetime of good works. And yet, none of those things can make us right with God. There is only one way to know for sure that our sins are forgiven and that we will spend eternity in heaven. Are you sure you’ve received the right cure for sin?

Resting in the Finished Work of Christ

Date: May 3, 2020 | Speaker:

How good do you have to be for God to let you into heaven? Well actually, you have to be absolutely perfect! That’s really bad news for all of us. Leviticus shows us the long list of standards that God requires, but it also shows us that Jesus met all those requirements on our behalf, so now all we have to do is believe on Him and rest in His finished work, and that’s the best news we could ever hear!

The Death You Should Have Died

Date: March 1, 2020 | Speaker:

Imagine being brought to trial for committing a horrible crime, and being given the death penalty. Then suddenly, someone jumps up and says they want to die in your place. The judge agrees, but orders you to perform the execution! Could you do it? In a sense, that’s exactly what we did to Jesus. It was our sin that put Him to death and made Him suffer God’s judgement! How often do we remember just how much He loves us that He would willingly die so that we could live?

Discovering Your God-Given Identity

Date: November 17, 2019 | Speaker:

Have you ever really asked “Who am I?” In Christ Jesus you are loved, forgiven, chosen, a new creation, not condemned, more than a conqueror, God’s workmanship, a work in progress, provided for, and victorious. You are who God says you are and you are unique, a friend of God who created you for a purpose and in Christ you have an identity.

Why Blood Was Required to Forgive Sins

Date: November 10, 2019 | Speaker:

Are you going to heaven when you die? How do you know that for sure? Do you think it’s because you’ve been a good person, or given money to the church, or because your parents were Christians? The truth is, none of those things will get you to heaven. There is only one way, and that is through the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ who gave His life as the required payment for sin. God’s judgement for sin is coming, and the only way you will be saved from that judgement is if you have applied the blood to your life.

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.

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.

The Gifts of Christmas

The Gift of Salvation

Date: December 23, 2018 | Speaker:

You have probably received some strange gifts at different times in your life; things that ended up in a closet or in the attic because you simply had no use for them. But once in a while you get a gift that seems perfectly suited for you. When Jesus came into the world, He brought us the costliest, most thoughtful and most practical gift ever given — the gift of salvation. It is the one gift you cannot afford to live without, or die without! He is offering it to you today. Have you ever received it?

Blessed are the Merciful

Date: August 5, 2018 | Speaker:

Deeply ingrained in every human heart is a desire for justice. This is part of the image of God that has been imprinted on our nature, but because of sin, our desire for justice has been distorted. It now lurks inside us, keeping track of all the ways other people have offended us, and constantly demanding that they pay for what they’ve done. But rather than seeking revenge, Jesus said His followers should be quick to show mercy by forgiving the debts of others, even if they don’t deserve it. After all, God forgave us of all our sin, and we did nothing to deserve it!

Are You a Debt Collector?

Date: March 4, 2018 | Speaker:

There’s a lot of debt collecting taking place in the world, and not just the financial kind. When someone hurts us, we tend to hold that person in debt, convinced that they owe us something, and demanding that they pay us back for the wrong they’ve done. But Jesus says we must release others and forgive them, just as our heavenly Father has canceled our debt and forgiven us. So, are you a debt collector or a debt releaser?

Our God of Restoration

Date: February 11, 2018 | Speaker:

Do you wonder if God could ever forgive you for what you’ve done? Do you think His calling on your life has surely been revoked considering the mistakes you have made? Are you convinced God has rejected you forever? Scripture gives us a clear understanding on questions such as these. A broken and repentant heart, God will not reject. Listen as we bring into focus God’s desire to restore His children who have gone astray.
