Sermons


Who You Are Matters

This is the first of three messages on regaining who we are as we stand before the throne of God. In this message we focus on "Who we are matters” because we so often feel as though we don’t.

Explore Your Faith

Guest speaker Tim Houck challenges us to understand that faith without works is dead, and that we need to explore our faith to truly experience it.

Taming the Tongue

The power of speech is one of the greatest powers God has given us. With the tongue, we can praise God, teach God’s Word and lead lost sinners to Jesus Christ. But with that same tongue we can tell lies that can ruin a reputation or break someone’s heart. The ability to articulate truth is one of the most powerful ways we influence others; and yet so often we take this ability for granted.

Fear of Failure

Everyone is afraid of failing in some capacity.  Moses was too, join us as we look at the excuses Moses came up with not to go forward to fulfill what he was called to do and how God answered him.

I Am Messy!

“Churches are not Victorian parlors where everything is always picked up and ready for guests. They are messy family rooms… Things are out of order, to be sure, but that is what happens to churches that are lived in. They are not show rooms. They are living rooms, and if the persons living in them are sinners, there are going to be clothes scattered about, handprints on the woodwork and mud on the carpets” (Eugene Peterson, “Reversed Thunder”, page 54).

The Three Crosses

We want to notice this morning the three crosses that were represented at the crucifixion of Christ.  In John 19:18, we are told - "Here they crucified him, and with him two others—one on each side and Jesus in the middle."
The Cross of Rejection, The Cross of Reception and The Cross of Redemption.

Colossians 4

The text (Colossians 4:2–6) falls naturally into two parts: verses 2–4 are the first part, and verse 5 and 6 are the second part. The first part has to do with our indirect involvement in evangelism through prayer for God's specially called spokesmen. The second part has to do with our direct involvement in evangelism through wise conduct and seasoned speech.

Colossians 2

No matter where we are: a child in the faith, a teenager or an adult, God calls us to spiritual maturity. He wants us to grow by deepening our faith. Spiritual growth is one of God’s greatest desires for us. In fact, spiritual growth is essential to the life of a Christian, just as physical growth is essential to the life of a child. If you are not growing then you’re dying. It’s so important that God commands us to mature spiritually.

Colossians 1

There’s something that intrigues us about before and after images. Whether it’s a remarkable account of weight loss or the “amazing” re-growth of hair on a bald head, such displays capture our attention and don’t easily let go. But what if the before picture was so ugly that it could hardly be viewed, and the after picture was so beautiful that it seemed impossible to believe that the same person is being shown.

Sycamore Tree

There are so many things that happen in life that we don't always know to look for Christ in them.  Reese reminds us of the Sycamore tree in the story of Zacchaeus, where he needed to climb the tree that was provided in order to see Jesus.  What are the sycamore trees in our lives that are intended for us to see Jesus more clearly?

MySpace: Beyond My Screen

I believe that one of the greatest needs in the church is an honest look at the invisible you.  How are you doing…REALLY?  When was the last time you got really honest with yourself and someone else?  Sometimes the hardest thing I do is confronting myself, dealing with my sinful heart.  It can be painful to take an inside look at my heart but if I want to be pleasing to God I must do it.  God is not just interested in how I look on the outside.  God is interested in what I feel and think on the inside.  Listen to Jesus, “Woe to you, teachers o

Beyond Virtual Community

I find myself going back to restaurants where I know the wait staff, because they recognize me; I recognize them. There's a certain sense of Hey, I'm part of a community...however tenuous. I find myself drawn to go back to those places. And it's even more important when we talk about the church.

Pursuit of Pleasure

Human beings have pursued fulfillment in every avenue imaginable. Some have successfully found it while others have not. If you leave God out of the picture, life is just a bubble that will surely pop. But when God is at the focal point of your life, you remember that your food and drink and work is really a gift from God and then it becomes something to be enjoyed.”

Self-control

What looks like self-control is actually the result of letting someone else take control. Self-control, biblically speaking, means walking by the Spirit, under the Lordship of Christ.

Practical Atheism

Most believe in God but don’t fear Him.

  1. I believe in God but I want to do whatever I want to do.
  2. I want enough of God to keep me out of Hell and get me into heaven.
  3. But not so much of God that I have to change my life because at the root I believe in God but I do not fear Him.

Practical Atheism

Belief in God but live as though He doesn’t exist.

Turn Your Donkey Around

Jesus rode a donkey as He entered Jerusalem.  He rode it knowing what He was riding into, Passion Week.  He could have turned around at any moment but instead chose to move forward because the ultimate goal what our union with Him.  We ride a donkey of sorts in a specific direction that often leads us further away from Christ.  It's time to turn our donkey around.

Jesus is Truth

In John 18:28-40 the passage records what may have been the last intimate, personal conversation that Jesus had with another individual before He was crucified. In this exchange between the Lord Jesus Christ and the Roman governor Pontius Pilate, we see two men with opposing agendas. Jesus sets Himself apart from anyone esle Pilate had ever encountered, He states the He was born to testify to the truth.
