Confronting Extreme Loss

Confronting Extreme Loss

Categories: The Story of Job
January 21, 2024

Everyone of us will face trials and tragedies in this life. It's not a matter of "if" but "when". And the reality we all have to address is how we are going to respond to these difficult situations because there's a right way and a wrong way. A wise man named Job who was full of faith and who knew great sorrow will show us the best way.

There are about 360 places in the Bible where you see the command or encouragement to “not be afraid.” But at the same time, there are about 200 places where it tells us to “fear God.” In this message we will see how to let a healthy fear of God overcome the unhealthy fears in your life.

The Source of All Truth

The Source of All Truth

December 31, 2023

We all want to start this New Year off right and the best way to do that is NOT a new gym membership, or another self-help book or making a resolution we statistically won't keep. It is recommitting or maybe committing for the very first time to being students of the Bible because it's in those Sacred Scriptures where we find God and His strength to endure whatever life sends our way.

Different empires, kingdoms, nations, and countries have risen to power throughout the centuries. Each one thought it would last forever, but history has proven time and again that it's only a matter of time before they fall and their place will be taken by another. There is one kingdom though that the Prophet Daniel revealed will last forever, and it won't be established by human rulers. It will be established by God!

Confront Their Sins

Confront Their Sins

Speaker:
August 20, 2023

Fear lets sin linger. When we see someone doing something wrong, we are so terrified of saying something, that we will do almost anything apart from confronting it. But God calls us to be courageous. His Word is filled with commands to correct, confront, and rebuke out of love for Jesus, love for the sinner, and love for those affected by the sinner’s actions. This message’s goal is peace, both the peace of addressing issues and the peace of mind knowing that you did something to address the sin in your midst.

Confess Your Sins

Confess Your Sins

Speaker:
August 13, 2023

Most of us have a sin (or two) that we never confess, at least not to our fellow believers. It is way too awkward to talk about that struggle, so we keep it between us and God, hoping that somehow, in some way, things will change. Sadly, they don’t (and instead get worse). But what if we said it? What if we confessed our sins to one another? Would our worst fears come true? Or would we find freedom in allowing our Christian friends to pray, encourage, and forgive us in Jesus’ name?

Using the Truth to Fight Temptations

When you're tempted by the sins you know all too well, don’t miss the moment when Jesus was tempted too. There, in the desert just beyond the Jordan River, Jesus showed us how to fight temptation by turning constantly to God’s Word. Even better, he fought for us, overcoming the Tempter and maintaining his identity as the sinless Son of God who came to save us.

Understanding Biblical Contradictions

If you've ever spent a decent amount of time reading the Bible or if you've ever watched a YouTube video trying to explain the Bible, you've probably come across some supposed contradictions that make you wonder if you can trust what the Bible has to say. We're going to take a look at one of the more glaring "contradictions" and discover that biblical "contradictions" aren't contradictions at all if you understand the difference between the Law and the Gospel.

What I Wish I’d Known Sooner

What I Wish I’d Known Sooner

May 28, 2023

There are plenty of things in life you should try: new foods, new hobbies, maybe even a different haircut. But when it comes to the calling that God has for your life, he doesn't want you to try. He wants you to train. In this message we will look at some specific areas of life where you should stop trying and start training.
