    Better understand how David was able to not be afraid, and how we might grow more courage in our life.

    There is a new television show called Fear Factor. Some critics suggest it is a new low on TV. This "reality show" pays people money to face their biggest fears. So, for example, you have a man staked to the ground with 200 rats crawling over him for ten minutes and getting paid $10,000 for doing ...read more

    God’s judgment is fair and just-Without it the world would not be a good one

    Here’s a question for you: How many animals of each kind did Moses take on the ark? The answer, of course, is "None." It was Noah, not Moses, who brought the animals on the ark. Most of you knew that because "Noah and the ark" is probably one of the best known stories in the entire Bible. From ...read more

    Push aside the spirit of Babel, and declare your dependence upon the Lord

    I don’t know if you realize it or not, but every one in this room is part of a minority group. Less than 10% of the people in the world speak English. Estimates are that just under 500 million people on planet earth are English speakers, while over twice that many speak Mandarin Chinese. There are ...read more

    I got concerned that every time I took communion, I might be risking my life. What would happen if I ate the bread or drank the cup in an "unworthy manner"?

    Teddy Roosevelt, the man who would become the 26th President of the United States, was afraid to go to church when he was a child because of a creature he called "The Zeal." His mother eventually realized the reason for Teddy’s fear was a Scripture verse he had heard the pastor read, John 2:17, "It ...read more

    I know there is sometimes mistrust between Christians who speak in tongues and those who do not. My desire is that this sermon might help us get over some of that so that we can grow in love for each other.

    One of the most important, most powerful and beautiful dimensions of Christianity is the hope it gives that physical death will not be the end, but through a resurrection we will enter God’s kingdom and experience eternal life

    Four friends were talking about death. One of them asked the other three, "When you are in your casket and people are mourning you, what would you like to hear them say about you?" The first man said, "I’d like to hear them say that I was a fine physician in my time and a great family man." The ...read more

  • A Tale Of Two Brothers

    How we relate to God affects how we relate to others: Because Cain didn't have a right relationship with God, his relationship with his brother Abel was not right either.

    For a number of years, one of my favorite TV shows was "Murder, She Wrote" with Angela Lansbury. Now, I could never figure out how so many murders could happen in that little New England village of Cabot Cove, but there was something captivating about trying to figure out "who done it" before the ...read more

    Exploring the consequences and lasting effect of Adam and Eve's disobedience to God.

    A number of years ago, General Electric had a wonderful commercial which showed the lights coming on in the nation of Hungary.

    the meaning and significance of Biblical Baptism

    There is a story about a Baptist pastor who had just started serving a new congregation. For eight Sundays in a row he preached on the importance of baptism. Finally, the chairman of the deacon board approached him and said, "Preacher, we think you need to choose another theme to preach on." The ...read more

  • Hunting For Humility?

    based on 311 ratings
     | 4,594 views

    Christianity would benefit greatly if there were more humble individuals in both pulpits and pews

    When asked what were the three most important Christian virtues, Augustine replied, "Humility, humility, and humility." Yet, this great virtue is in rather short supply in our culture. Even very good people seem to have a hard time being really humble. One day Linus tells Charlie Brown, "When I ...read more

    based on 233 ratings
     | 1,919 views

    Sexual fulfillment is a very shallow goal to have in life. Instead, we need to seek spiritual fulfillment in Jesus Christ

    Dear Mom, Yes, some of the things you have heard about this city are probably true. In fact, they say the main reason people come to this place is because of sex. Sexual immorality is more prevalent than you could ever imagine. By God’s grace, I have remained chaste, but it seems I am being ...read more

    Biblical teaching on divorce: though divorce is not a good thing, it is sometimes permitted.

    Arnold Schwarzenegger said, "I read where one wife plans to divorce her husband as soon as she can find a way to do so without making him happy." Friends, Arnold may have read that, but in real life, divorce is no joke. It seldom brings happiness to anyone. Most of us are aware of the devastating ...read more

     | 4,501 views

    Today we are going to talk about a real person, an individual who plays an important part in the Bible's account of Jesus' birth, but who is seldom mentioned in Christmas programs or sermons. His name is King Herod.

    The man who hated Christmas. Who am I talking about? Is it Ebenezer Scrooge, the miser whose motto for Christmas was "bah-humbug"? Or is it The Grinch, the creature who tries to steal Christmas because he can't stand to see people happy? Well, neither. Today we are going to talk about a real ...read more
