  • Blessed Be God

    Contributed on Jul 10, 2007
    based on 4 ratings

    How do you respond to God? Do you "bless" Him? What does that mean? Join Pastor Steve as he explains the meaning of 1 Peter 1:3.

    Peter tells his readers to “Bless” God. That phrase is very similar to what we saw in our study of Psalm 103:1-4, where David said: “Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your more

  • Why We Preach God's Word

    based on 11 ratings

    The preaching of the Word of God is and must be at the center of everything a church does. It is our mission and mandate. In this message, Pastor Steve shows "Why We Preach God’s Word."

    Preaching is the greatest calling of God. It is the means by which He calls sinners to Himself and the means by which He equips those He calls for service. Preaching has been downplayed in the church. In some churches it’s not only downplayed but has been replaced. Listen to how some churches view more

  • What Is Anger And How Does It Manifest Itself?

    We all struggle with anger but how can we tell when it is right? In this message, Pastor Steve Hereford examines the definition and manifestation of anger.

    Ephesians 4:26-27 says, “‘Be angry, and do not sin’: do not let the sun go down on your wrath nor give place to the devil.” This passage, which the first part comes from Psalm 4:4, is a call to righteous anger. Because anger can be selfish do we rarely understand that we can be angry without more

  • God's Blueprint For The Church

    Contributed on Jun 29, 2007
    based on 6 ratings

    What is the church to do? If you ask modern church growth experts they would say we are to become more appealing to reach the lost. But what does the Bible say we are to do? Join Pastor Steve as he shares "God’s Blueprint for the Church."

    John MacDuff said, "The gods of the unregenerate soul are the world, self, and sin" (Grace Gems). He’s right! But in the seeker-sensitive church those three words have been ignored. We are told that the church today needs to be "light on doctrine" (quoted in an article on the Seeker-Sensitive more

  • Stop Blaming God For Your Sin

    Contributed on Jun 26, 2007
    based on 4 ratings

    James has a strong word for those who blame God for their sin. Read more to learn what it is as Pastor Steve examines James 1:13.

    We have completed our study of trials from James 1:2-12. Now we’re considering temptation. James says in James 1:13-18, “Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God"; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. 14 But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by more
