Sermons about Hope

Easter Fool or Easter Faith?

Date: April 12, 2020 | Speaker:

Some people find it difficult to believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ. To them, it fits in the same category as the Tooth Fairy or the Easter Bunny. So as followers of Christ, are we fools for believing that He actually rose from the dead and that He is still changing lives today, or is there solid evidence for the resurrection?

Our Response to COVID-19

Date: March 29, 2020 | Speaker:

What a month this has been! The entire world has turned its attention to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, panic is widespread, cities look like ghost towns, and national economies are facing collapse. Times like these reveal what people have been trusting in for their sense of security and hope. Good health, a steady job and financial stability can all be gone in the blink of an eye, so make sure you are depending on the one thing that will never let you down.

Christmas Addresses Our Biggest Need

Date: December 22, 2019 | Speaker:

We were created to glorify God with every thought, every word and every action. But our sin has caused us to glorify other things more than we glorify God. As a result, we have lost peace with God, which robs us of peace within, which destroys our peace with others. That baby in the manger came to restore this broken peace with God so that we could once again have peace within and peace with others. and to give us a new heart that would desire to glorify Him above everything else.

The Hope We’ve All Been Searching For

Date: December 15, 2019 | Speaker:

Our lives are fueled by hope. The decisions we make, the goals we pursue — in fact everything we do is driven by the hope that our efforts will make life better tomorrow than it is today. Often we search for hope in all the wrong places. We mistakenly think that we will find hope in a new relationship, or by having a particular experience, or if our current circumstances were different. But none of those things can ever give us hope. There is only one place hope can be found. Have you found it yet?

The Gracious Wounds of God

Date: September 22, 2019 | Speaker:

At times in life we tend to go our own way instead of walking with God. In fact, sometimes we don’t just walk away from Him, we actually run! But if we truly belong to Him, He will not let us run forever. Often He will have to break us, wound us, in order to keep us from going astray and forgetting our dependence upon Him. These wounds might be painful, but they are really the marks of grace. They are proof that He knows us and loves us enough to keep us close to His side.

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 Hope

Date: December 2, 2018 | Speaker:

If we’re not careful, it’s easy for all our hopes and prayers to revolve around us. “God, please take away these problems… give me more money… a happier marriage… a nicer house…” While there’s nothing wrong with having hopes and dreams, we often fail to realize that our greatest needs are actually much deeper. Jesus came to give us a brand new kind of hope, one that truly satisfies and lasts forever! Is your hope in Him?

Blessed are the Peacemakers

Date: August 19, 2018 | Speaker:

Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” There is no greater honor than to be called a child of God, so what does it mean to be a peacemaker? And more specifically, what does Jesus mean when He speaks of peace? Listen as we take a closer look at this word “peacemaker”, how the children of God are to know this kind of peace, and how we are to promote it among a world separated from God.

Bruised Reeds and Smoldering Wicks

Date: July 1, 2018 | Speaker:

At some point in life, every believer will go through seasons when they feel bruised and beaten down by trials. During those times, discouragement can cause our spiritual fire to dwindle and almost burn out. How wonderful to know that Christ has promised He will never break a bruised reed or snuff out a smoldering wick! He comes to the weakest of us with mercy and grace, gently lifts us up, and lovingly restores us to himself again.

Waiting on the Lord: A Mother’s Story

Date: May 13, 2018 | Speaker:

Hannah was barren for many years until God heard her cry out to Him. He answered her prayers, and Hannah gave birth to one of the greatest prophets Israel ever had. Like Hannah, we should pray without ceasing with confidence that He will hear our prayers.

The Resurrection Changes Everything

Date: April 1, 2018 | Speaker:

We spend our entire lives trying to keep death at a distance, but still, death is coming for all of us. And death isn’t even the worst news, because after death comes the judgment! So what hope do we have in the face of such frightening events? When Jesus died on the cross and rose to life again, He conquered sin and death, and everyone who trusts in Him will be forgiven of their sins and given eternal life. They will then be able to face death and judgment without fear! Have you trusted in Christ to save you?

Whose Kingdom Are You Building?

Date: February 4, 2018 | Speaker:

We’ve all heard the phrase “Your kingdom come” since we were little kids, and it might mean nothing more to us than just words in a prayer. But it is much more than words. It is a life to be lived. How do people see and experience God’s Kingdom? They do so through us. When we live each day surrendered to the rule and reign of God as our King, others will be touched by His truth and love, and the kingdom will continue to expand.
