The one time a year the Congregation "preaches"! Join the celebration of what God has done in 2020....in spite of a pandemic and national turmoil.
In this last installment of teachings on the Holy Spirit, we'll take a look at the expectations that rest on believers if we desire the Holy Spirit to work in our lives.
Part 3 of the Holy Spirit series helps us understand the power we receive when the Holy Spirit is active in our lives. With that power comes conviction - but, it also brings liberty and freedom!
Part 2 of this series helps us understand the things the Holy Spirit will give us...wisdom, counsel, recollection, etc. These things are VITAL in the believer's walk: How will we know what to say to that person? What words can we offer in that situation? Come find out what the Spirit can tell us.
The Holy Spirit....part of the Triune God. Why do we not talk about Him much? Come with us on this 3 part journey of discovering Who He is, how He functions, and what role He can play in our lives if we allow Him to.
We, like football refs, have authority given to us by a Book and a Higher Power! Are we acknowledging the Touchdowns? Do we throw the penalty flag when His standards are ignored? God has an expectation that believers will play by His Book - anything else results in chaos on the field...
Continuing our study of Matthew (chapter 24), Pastor Randy takes a look at what Jesus Himself says about His return and the last days.
We don't just attend church for the sake of attending church. According to Scripture, now more than ever, we need to assemble together as the Body for strength, encouragement, and discipleship!
Jesus had a real problem with the Pharisees. Spiritual leaders motivated by their own selfish desire to be great and noticed. Preference and imposed "rules" on top of scripture should never be a litmus test as to whether something is truly righteous or not. The standard is His Word. Period.
Trying to trip up Jesus by asking questions they thought He couldn't answer without pinning Himself to the wall didn't work out for the Pharisees, Sadducees, or Scribes. We show pride not trust when we seek to "trap" Jesus...don't be so "smart" spiritually that you're not....
A re you trying to get to the Wedding Feast without putting on the wedding garments for dinner? There is only ONE way to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb - His way...through the blood of Jesus.
God took a Saul and made him a Paul - do we believe He can still do that today?
Does God still speak in visions - would we obey if He did?
2020 has left its mark on the planet - and, there 4 months to go! Are you ready, believer, for what you might have to face in the coming months or years? Jesus directly told us that there will be a falling away from the faith before His wrath falls on the earth. He warned us - let's get prepared!
Twice in Matthew 20, Jesus shows anger then points to prayer....interesting combination. Join us to find out how these 2 go together....
Sometimes, fellow believers can be the biggest source of hurt in our lives. But the Matt 20 story of the 2 blind beggars doesn't just deal with hostile followers - it also speaks to how we should pursue Jesus regardless of the "noise" around us. Keep persisting in prayer - keep crying out to Him!
Sometimes, we ask for things and say, "Yes, we are able" to handle whatever comes with our ask....but, we have no real clue as to what we are even saying! Take a look with us at 2 disciples who did just this....
Is it "fair" for someone who has lived a blatantly sinful life and maybe been a jerk to everyone they ever knew to still receive eternal life if they accept Jesus, say, on their deathbed? Come join us to see what the parable in Matt 20 says...
We will not withstand nor understand the current culture unless we see life with a Biblical worldview. Do you believe the Bible gives us absolute truths? That Jesus lived a completely sinless life? Our world around us - mainstream culture - is moving far, far away from these truths. What will you
