In Prison For Christ

Date Sun, Aug 23, 2015

Paul spent several years in jail, both in Caesarea and Rome.  He did not see prison as a setback, but took every opportunity to share the Gospel and to write letters. This letter–the shortest book in the Bible–reflects the heart and mind of Paul regarding slavery and Christian charity.

On Trial For Christ

Date Sun, Aug 16, 2015

Like us, Paul was subject to the legal system of his day.  He was falsely accused of beginning a riot in Jerusalem. He was escorted to the Roman city of Caesarea where he met with the governor Felix who had three options: (1) return Paul to Jerusalem (2) release him; or (3) send him to Rome.  But to shift responsibilities he handed him over to King Agrippa.

Suffering For Christ

Date Sun, Jul 26, 2015

Paul learned that his conversion entailed suffering. Indeed, suffering was the mark of his genuine apostleship. Let us learn from his experience of suffering which came to him from many different sources.

Next to Christ Himself, Saul, later named Paul, has had the greatest impact on the doctrines of Christianity. Today we begin a short series of messages on his life and legacy.  Please note the three phases of his conversion experience (this outline is adapted from a book written by Dr. Sweeting).

This is a time for tears.  We are witnessing a national “gender rebellion” that has implications for our families both now and in the future.

Race, Riots, And Reconciliation

Date Sun, Jun 7, 2015

In this message I give a biblical perspective on the divisive issue of racism which surfaced when riots erupted in various cities. After delineating the challenge before us, we must turn to the Scriptures and see that the church is God’s reconciling agency.  If we foster racism we are not living the Gospel.

The Omniscience Of God

Date Sun, May 31, 2015

God knows all things, both actual and possible.  His knowledge of us is personal, detailed and very important for our own well-being.  David captures this in Psalm 139.

Throughout  this series of messages we hope to expand our understanding of God and thereby (1) worship Him better (2) believe Him more confidently and (3) serve Him more diligently.
