    What does the word “fellowship” bring to your mind? Do you think of coffee or fried chicken or church socials? Paul had a wonderful fellowship with the Philippian church that didn’t have anything to do with any of those.

    I love our times of fellowship, don’t you? We joke all the time about how much Baptists love to eat, but I think that one of the reasons we like to eat so much is because of the fellowship that goes along with it. Those times are wonderful and I wouldn’t trade anything in the world ...read more

    No matter how bad we’d like to, we can’t undo the past. God is all-powerful but there are some things He won’t do. He will not change the past. But he’ll do something even better. Even though He won’t change the past, He will give you a fresh start for th

    Do you ever wish you could just start over? Staples has made a fortune with their easy button commercials. It would be nice if there was such a thing as an easy button, but you know what I’d rather have? I’d rather have an undo button. Can you imagine having a button that allowed ...read more

    I’ve shared this with you before, but I think it bears repeating. For grandparent’s generation had one primary goal for their children.

    It’s a wonderful thing when people finally decide to obey God and get busy doing the work He’s called them to do. But there’s always a problem when we decide to get to work, isn’t there? The problem is not necessarily that work’s hard. Most people don’t m

    Week before last, we started looking at this little book of Haggai. And we saw how the Jewish remnant had been in exile in Babylon for many years. The temple had been destroyed, Jerusalem had been destroyed, and they were far away from home. But after a period of time, God allowed them to come ...read more

    When the calendar turns to a new year, many of us take the time to reflect on the past. We think about the good times and the difficult times we have been through. We think about opportunities we might have missed or things we might have done better. That

    Here we are at the beginning of a new year. At the Watchnight service, we talked a little bit about resolutions. I don’t know whether you make resolutions or not, but what I do know is that you have probably done some reflecting on the past year. That what we do when the calendar turns. ...read more

    Have you ever asked a question and not gotten the answer you were looking for? I think we all have. The fact is, that just because a person is asking a question, doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re looking for an answer. Especially if the answer goes ag

    Have you ever asked a question and not gotten the answer you were looking for? I think we all have.

    This is the second message of a three part Christmas series on the first 7 verses of Isaiah 9. Today’s message focuses specifically on the answer to the question, “Who Is Jesus?” Do you know the answer? This is the perfect season to find out.

    Who is Jesus to you? Lots of people believe in Jesus. Many atheists and agnostics believe in Jesus. They will say that He was a real historical person. They will say He was a great teacher of morality. They will say He might have even thought that He was a prophet. They might even say that He ...read more

    When a person is born again, they are like a newborn baby. The disciples were really no different. They had a lot of growing up to do in just a short period of time, and all through the Gospels, Jesus grew them and nurtured them. He purposely put them in

    We all know what happens when a person is born again, right? The very instant that we’re born again, we’re automatically fully mature Christians, right?

    Who is Jesus to you? Is He just a moral teacher? Is He just a storybook character? Throughout John chapter 5, Jesus claimed to be God. And in today’s passage, He brings four witnesses to the stand to corroborate His testimony.

    How many of you have ever served on a jury before? I haven’t. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, but never have been able to. I’ve been summoned before—several times.

    Today, we are looking at one of the most beloved events in all of the New Testament—the time when Jesus fed the 5000 with five loaves and two fish. But despite our familiarity with the account, there are many things we can still learn from it.

    This morning we have come to one of the most beloved stories in all of the Bible. Probably most of us have pictures of this event in our mind from children’s story books or Sunday school lessons. On the one hand, it’s good that many of us are very familiar with this event. But on the other hand, ...read more

    How can this great book on leadership end this way? This chapter is a reflection on everything that has gone on up until this point. But it’s not a rose-colored reflection. It is an honest look at how quickly the remnant fell away and it demands an hones

    That was a lot to read, so I want to briefly give you an overview of what’s going on here.
