About Sermon Contributor
Sermon:
“Exciting to be part of the ground floor of what God is doing”
- God called my family here 1.5 years ago
- Not to be "just another church"
o Christ centered in a day of man centered
o God honoring worship in a day of religious entertainment
o Bible teaching and preaching in a day of ear tickling
o Reaching youth with Biblical truth instead of Worldly amusement
o Transforms people from the inside out
o Reaches the lost with the Gospel
o Sets God's people free from the bondage of the world
- Therefore, In our first 1.5 years our theme has been "A New Church Preaching Timeless Truth"

o I am excited to look forward and see the course the Lord has laid for us:
o Tonight we meet to rally around a unifying theme
 As we grow we can make sure that we are all focused on the same things
 We need to remember what the local church is all about
 Excited to share with you the vision for 2011 the Lord has set
 Allow us to:
• keep the main things the main things
• have unity as we grow and reach touch new lives
- To introduce this theme I want to share with you about some things the devil doesn't want you to know.

TURN TO: Luke 4

The Bible tells us that the devil is a LIAR... Many people tonight live bound by the lies of the devil

President Clinton noticed a group of boys surrounding a dog. Concerned lest the boys were hurting the dog, he went over and asked,
"What are you doing with that dog?"

One of the boys replied, "This dog is a neighborhood stray. We all want
him, but only one of us can take him home. So we've decided that
whichever one of us can tell the biggest lie will get to keep the dog."

Of course, the president was taken aback. "You boys shouldn't be having
a contest telling lies!" he exclaimed. He then launched into a ten
minute sermon against lying,beginning, "Don't you boys know it's a sin
to lie," and ending with, "Why, when I was your age, I never told a lie."

There was dead silence for about a minute. Just as the president was
beginning to think he'd gotten through to them, the smallest boy gave a
deep sigh and said, "All right, give him the dog.
