    What will it take to reverse some of the damage we have done to ourselves and the church’s image? I believe it will take Christians really living like Christians.

    You know, it’s startling today to realize exactly how people look at Christianity. To much of the world Christians are just a nuisance. We are just a bunch of crazy fanatics who try to impose innumerable rules upon everyone else. We’re just a bunch of do-gooders who always find ways to condemn ...read more

    The Duke of Cambridge said in the late 1800’s, “Any change, at any time, for any reason, is to be deplored.” Change is one of those things that none of us are really comfortable with. Many people, if they had their choice, would choose to keep everything the same. It’s comfortable. It gives us ...read more

    And I want us to look through this chapter together and see three things that I believe come when the Spirit is here.

    This evening I want us to look at Acts 2. We’re going to read a passage of Scripture that has started a movement. For it’s in this passage where we find the story of the day of Pentecost. Probably one of the most divisive issues within the general church today is the topic of tongues. Now, I ...read more

    What does Christ mean when He calls Himself the Bread of Life?

    For the last few weeks we have sort of gotten off course in our Sunday evening services, but tonight I want us to again look to the book of John. We have been asking the question, “Who is Jesus?” It’s a question that can be answered from several different approaches. We can study the attributes ...read more

     | 2,588 views

    Who would have thought that we could learn a lesson from a leper? And who would have thought that the lesson we would learn from him would be in the area of gratitude? But somehow the leper in this story today teaches us three important lessons about th

    Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of the year. Families gather together for what may be the one time they do so that year. School lets out for a few days. You get a paid day off of work.

    Why did God choose to let shepherds be the first to hear the news of the Messiah?

    Over the past few weeks we have been taking a new look at some of the figures of the Christmas story. We’ve taken some time to study the stories within the story. We’ve looked at the story of Mary, the teenaged girl that God chose to be the mother of His Son. Last week we discussed the story of ...read more

    A message of God’s love at Christmas.

    Christmas is almost here. In exactly one week the day we’ve all been waiting for will have come. We’ve been singing and listening to carols as we have been awaiting its arrival.

    I think we can look at Abraham’s story and see three things about his obedience that really spoke to his faith. These are three things upon which I think you and I can also measure our own faith.

    In the eleventh chapter of the New Testament book of Hebrews there is one of the most famous lists in history. It is a list of Bible heroes. Big names like Noah and Moses, Samson and David. And there were lesser known figures like Enoch and Rahab, Barak and Jephthah. What was it that held all ...read more

    Storms… they are part of life. And here in our text, Paul faces some storms. And through this time in Paul’s life we can find the anchors which held him firm during those storms.

    You know, the Bible is packed full of some really great stories. Stories that tell us history like the creation story. Stories of love like the one we find in the book of Ruth.

    I think we all can relate to the woman caught in adultery.

    Maybe you’ve heard the story about the scene that took place in a San Diego court room. Two men were on trial for armed robbery.
