There is only One King, One Lord, One Creator. He, and only He, is worthy of our worship and honor forever. It's gonna be loud in heaven!!
This last election cycle should be a wake-up call to believers. So many prophets said they heard from the Lord - and they were wrong. So many people were fixated on their candidate winning that many quit trying to hear God and simply listened to what agreed with their desires. Church - when the noise gets loud - we must to listen for the Lord's voice above everything else.
Right to Life Sunday! Join us as we take a look at some awesome women in the Old Testament who feared God. The fear of God is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom - these 2 women walked in the fear of the Lord in deciding to not obey their king because they had knowledge and wisdom from Him.
Jer 2:13 says that we've left the Fountain of Living Waters in order to pour into broken cisterns that can't hold any water. When we try to satisfy with other things the part of us that needs Jesus...we're just pouring water into a broken container. Let's get back to the clear, refreshing Fountain!
Friends, we are not struggling against flesh and blood: our government, elected leaders, media, etc. We are fighting spiritual forces that are determined to destroy not only our nation but our heritage and our churches! Join us in unpacking what Scripture says that we, as believers, need to do about the battle in front of us.
As we swing into a New Year, let us not forget the basics needed to walk out our faith daily!
We will all inevitably encounter a day that brings the worst life has to throw at us. What will you do? How will you respond? The book of Acts reveals how the new Church responded in their darkest days....we should strive to follow their example.
While this is not the traditional "baby in the manger" Christmas sermon - it's a relevant one for this time of year. As Pastor Randy tells the story of a stuttering choir boy, the reality of the story rings true for us during this holiday season - and for any season in life: "Keep your focus on Jesus...."
The birth of a baby can do wonders. The birth of a Savior can do miracles. Come hear how Jesus changed the world!

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? The Holy Spirit will give us those things, and more, when we seek Him.
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, the gifts He gives, and the fruit He can bear in our lives if we allow Him to.
