    based on 11 ratings
     | 1,857 views

    This sermon looks at Pauls obedience as the Lord sought to direct him.

    When it comes to doing the will of God… Our intentions are not good enough. v.6 Here Paul and his companions clearly intended to go into Asia to preach the gospel. But intentions alone were not sufficient. Certainly their intentions were noble and even right but for whatever reason they were ...read more

    This sermon is about the response that came from the Jerusalem Council.

    This sermon looks at the dangers of unforgiveness.

    Too often we allow little things that take place to hinder our relationships with our Christian brothers and sisters. That is exactly what we see here in the ministry of Paul when he draws an imaginary line in the sand with regard to John Mark. Un-forgiveness Hinders… 1. Our Walk v. 38 – Any ...read more

    This sermon looks at three things we risk losing if we don’t recognize and affirm the sufficiency of Jesus sacrifice alone for our salvation.

    So many times we have trouble realizing the full impact of something that has taken place. Historically we have seen it happen time and time again.

  • Attributes To Admire Series

    based on 28 ratings
     | 3,681 views

    This sermon identifies four attributes worth admiration in Paul and Barnabas. These same attributes ought to be present in us as fathers.

    Admiration is an interesting thing. The dictionary defines it as “a feeling of pleasure, wonder and approval”. I think that most men want their children to admire them in one sense or another. I mean I want my children to take pleasure in me as their father, I want them to have a sense of wonder ...read more

    This message identifies three things we need to practice as believers in our walk of faith.

    You have all heard the expression “practice makes perfect”. Do you believe it to be true?

He continually repeats the same routine, ...read more

    There are many ways people can respond to God’s Word when it is proclaimed. This morning we are going to look at three ways the people at Antioch responded. They are the Good response, the Bad response and the downright Ugly response. 1. Let’s begin with the Good response… a. (They hungered ...read more

     | 5,313 views

    This sermon looks at Pauls message and identifies 15 things he says God is.

    Life can be pretty hectic. Family, church, work, school, sports, and hobbies can all seem to overwhelm us at times. I feel most likely the problem is that we live life as though everything revolves around us. Contrary to popular belief, I am not the most important person in the universe nor are ...read more

     | 9,319 views

    This sermon identifies three things believers ought to see that Satan does.

    I am amazed at what someone can overlook that is literally right before their eyes. Have you ever watched the Discovery Channel or Animal Planet and seen shows about snakes or insects? Every time they do one of those there will be a scene that appears to be a tree branch and green leaves or a ...read more

    This message takes a look at six reasons we should fast.

    (I began by showing the video clip called “The Fast” from sermonspice.com it is a humorous look at how we should not fast) Often I think of the early Church and wish it could be like that again. They experienced the hand of God in so many incredible ways. Then I remember that this did not come ...read more

    This sermon looks at six aspects of the power of prayer as seen in the passage.

    Here Peter is waiting for whatever Herod may have in store for him. Escape by his own means is not an option. He is being guarded by 16 soldiers that work 6 hour shifts in fours. One soldier is chained to each side of him and the other two are standing outside the cell to make sure he can’t get ...read more

    based on 12 ratings
     | 1,955 views

    This is a sermon about christian fellowship and it’s place in worship.

    There are many passages which I could have used this morning to speak of fellowship and its place in our worship. This is the third aspect of our purpose as a Church in maturing disciples.

The 2003 total was 377,357, reflecting a 4.44 percent decrease from the 2002 totals. “This indicated a baptism ratio of 1 to 43, meaning that, ...read more

    This is a sermon from a series on worship. This one deals with giving as a function of our worship.

    It seems to me that most people want to benefit from their money and they do whatever seems best to them to receive that benefit.
