Saved: An Open Heart

What is being saved worth to you? As we study the salvation story of Lydia in Acts 16 we see her answer to that question. It is without hesitation and she doubles down, all while knowing the cost. She stands as an incredible example of what it looks like when God opens a person’s heart … Read more

Saved: Seeking & Believing

This week, we continued our “Saved” sermon series by looking at Acts 16:22-34.  At first glance, it may seem like the apostle Paul and Silas were powerless and in a hopeless situation by being locked up in jail.  However, it was really the jailer himself who needed to be set free from the chains of … Read more

Saved – Receiving the Holy Spirit

To what lengths would God go, so that a lost sheep could be found? Jesus spelled it out in…Luke 19:10 (NASB) – “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Cornelius is a welcome example of God’s willingness to use extraordinary means to reach those who desire to … Read more

Saved: Seeing Clearly

This week’s sermon was focused on Acts 9 with the conversion and salvation story of Saul or Paul of Tarsus.  Before Paul came to Christ, he had no remorse for persecuting Christians and in fact, felt it was his service to God.  Paul wasn’t seeking Christ.  The truth of the matter was that Christ was … Read more

Saved: Hearing & Believing

On Sunday we kicked off the “Saved” series with a message about the Ethiopian Eunuch called “Hearing & Believing.”  In Acts 8 we find the Ethiopian is seeking God, but there is no path for him to have a relationship with God in Judaism.  He’s been relegated to the margins of the religious community.  But … Read more

Amazed – Easter 2021

In this message we walk through Luke 24 and see three scenes where Jesus’ followers are amazed.  As we go through life there are many time where we may feel like things are falling apart, but often with God things are falling into place.  One thing for sure, the more we try to control God … Read more

Palm Sunday – A Fresh Look

Oftentimes, we can become so familiar with something that we tend not to notice it and can even take it for granted.  That is the danger we can face as we come to the Easter season.  The accounts of palm Sunday, the cross, and the resurrection are so familiar to some of us, that we … Read more

Always Thankful

We wrapped up our “Life Verse” sermon series by looking at 1st Thessalonians 5:16-18…… “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything gives thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”  Truth be told, Christ may be seen in us the most when we don’t feel joyful, when we don’t want … Read more

I Can Do All Things

“I can do all things through Him who gives me strength.” – Philippians 4:13 While they might feel like the Biblical version of “You can do it.” Paul actually delivers these words to a congregation dealing with some serious problems. It’s not a quick pep-talk because they need to be more positive. When we look … Read more

“Take Courage”

As Christians, we are called to humble ourselves and put all our trust in Christ.  And that is precisely what we see in our life verse message coming from Acts 23:11….. “But on the night immediately following, the Lord stood at his side and said, “Take courage; for as you have solemnly witnessed to My … Read more
