    Contributed by Bruce Ball on Oct 26, 2015
    based on 6 ratings
     | 5,088 views

    Discusses the Rapture, why some believe in it while others do not, and gives Scripture to support it.

    As Christians and believers in Christ, we know what the overall plan is: To talk with Jesus so we can go to heaven when we die. But there is a lot more information squeezed into that plan that we might be fully aware of. During our lifetimes in church, we have all heard many sermons, but since ...read more

    We dedicated our newly remodeled sanctuary back to the Lord.

    Good morning, and welcome to God's house this morning! It is always a pleasure to see each of you on Sunday mornings.

  • Which Book Talks About Jesus?

    Contributed by Bruce Ball on Oct 21, 2015
    based on 5 ratings
     | 3,456 views

    This message covers every book of the bible, and shows how each one of them reference Jesus Christ. The title is a question. The answer would be .... "all of them."

    We are American Christians who believe in the Holy Bible, and as such, we recognize that the one thing that runs all the way through our Bible, like a ribbon tying it all together, is Jesus Christ. And "Christ" is not His last name: It is His title. And if we knew everything that title ...read more

    Contributed by Bruce Ball on Apr 8, 2015
    based on 4 ratings
     | 6,930 views

    Using the analogy of a bridge crossing a chasm, we discuss that even though there seems to be many bridges available, only one really leads to the other side and we must be careful when deciding which bridge.

    When you are planning a trip, how good are you at determining which way to get there? Do you just take a guess at which roads to take, or do you actually get a map out and plan your trip? Of course, smart money is always on the one who plans the trip, but I think we would be shocked to find out ...read more

  • The Proof Of Easter

    Contributed by Bruce Ball on Apr 1, 2015
    based on 5 ratings
     | 7,732 views

    In a time when many deny the existence of Jesus and the fact He arose, we offer the biblical story and compare it to some of the worldly explanations about Jesus and the tomb, using the truth found in facts.

    There are many thoughts as to what actually happened on that first Easter so many years ago, or what it actually means to us today. That is what we will address today. So, if you would, please open your Bibles to LUKE 24. We will begin there, but first . . . What do you think a good sermon ...read more

  • The State Of Our Church

    based on 4 ratings
     | 4,283 views

    Our annual End of the Fiscal Year necessitates assessing where our church is and what we should be focusing on in the next year. Your congregation should hear something like this from you, too.

    I truly thank God for His allowing me to pastor a congregation like you. It is my distinct pleasure to serve you as you serve the Lord. We are in a small “bedroom” community that serves the two larger cities. A bedroom community is one where people choose to live even though ...read more

    based on 6 ratings
     | 22,526 views

    This would be the most expensive trip in history and it would impact ever human born afterwards.

    How many of you like to travel? Sometimes, going on trips is exciting, isn’t it? And when most people travel, they do not plan on being gone for long, and even so, when they get to where they are going, the first thing they do is unpack their belongings and find places to put ...read more

  • In Joshua 6 - Lessons For Today

    Contributed by Bruce Ball on Mar 23, 2015
    based on 4 ratings
     | 13,178 views

    The story of how God led the smaller Israelite people to victory over a large and fortified city tells us much about what He will do for us today. Using lyrics of older hymns to reflect on our reliance upon God.

    I remember, as a child, sitting in church on light maple colored pews between my mother and father. They would never let my brother and me sit next to each other because we would end up hitting each other, or worse. But those memories are now very precious to me. And some of the memories that ...read more

  • What Is Spiritual Warfare?

    Contributed by Bruce Ball on Mar 15, 2015
    based on 6 ratings
     | 17,333 views

    This message explains spiritual warfare and how it affects each of us. It also shows how we can protect ourselves from it.

    I have found that there are three basic types of sermons. The first kind of sermon tells about what will come our way to hurt us, and it teaches what we can do to help prevent that from happening. The second type of sermon tells about what we are doing that might allow something bad to come our ...read more

     | 7,457 views

    In our desire to completely go thru the Bible, teaching it so all may have a working knowledge of it, we post Sermon #1 - an overview of Genesis 1-3. I also suggest some ideas of images you can find on the Internet to enhance their visual understanding.

    (The video of this sermon can be seen by going to ... www.cowetanazarene.org/videos.html) My calling as a Christian is to live the kind of life Jesus of Nazareth has laid out for me, showing His love and grace in everything I do, say, and think. That is such a huge task for me, I often fail to ...read more

  • The Broken & Hurting

    Contributed by Bruce Ball on Feb 21, 2015
    based on 5 ratings
     | 9,315 views

    Even though all bad things originate from Satan, many of our problems come from us because of the choices we make in life. We are more focused on what WE want than on what GOD wants for us.

    (The video of this sermon can be seen by going to ... www.cowetanazarene.org/videos.html) More than anything else, God wants His creation of mankind to be all it can be! That includes our being joyful, blessed, knowledgeable and in love; in love with Him. The last thing He wants is for us to ...read more

    This is a sermon about a young king who loved the Lord. His name was Josiah. It is about revival and what is necessary to receive revival.

    (The video of this sermon can be seen by going to ... www.cowetanazarene.org/videos.html) I wonder if it would be possible for one or two young boys to teach us such valuable lessons that would not only impact our very lives, but impact the future of a nation?

    An explanation of what the Rapture is, and what the Bible says about when it will occur.

    Each time we observe Communion, we read the passage in 1 CORINTHIANS 11 that tells us to eagerly look forward to the return of Christ. But nobody knows when that will be. Today, we will find out what we are supposed to do with that information. Let me begin by telling you a story of a man who ...read more

  • To Protect And To Serve

    Contributed by Bruce Ball on Jan 7, 2015
    based on 8 ratings
     | 7,363 views

    We invited the local Chief of Police to speak to our congregation and to our youth. After his talk, this is the short message we gave to close the service.

    TO PROTECT AND TO SERVE That motto is used to describe the original description of our federal government’s purpose. It is primarily to protect "we the people" from those in our society that would hurt us so that Americans can live in the pursuit of happiness. That being said, it would ...read more

  • Compassionate Giving

    based on 7 ratings
     | 26,638 views

    This message explains the necessity of giving to a compassionate ministry so others might be helped. The parable of the Good Samaritan in LUKE 10 is used as the example.

    Open your bibles to the book of LUKE, chapter 10. Let us read verses 30-37. One day, as Jesus was teaching, a religious leader stood and, wanting to test Jesus, asked him, “Teacher, what should I do if I want to inherit eternal life?” Jesus responded by asking the religious leader ...read more
