  • Blessed Be God

    Contributed by Steve Hereford on Jul 10, 2007
    based on 3 ratings
     | 1,984 views

    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 ...read more

  • God's Blueprint For The Church

    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 ...read more

  • What Is Anger And How Does It Manifest Itself?

    Contributed by Steve Hereford on Jun 29, 2007

     | 6,619 views

    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 ...read more

  • Why We Preach God's Word

    Contributed by Steve Hereford on Jun 29, 2007
    based on 11 ratings
     | 5,791 views

    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 ...read more

  • The Role Of Women In The Church

    Contributed by Steve Hereford on Jun 26, 2007
    based on 31 ratings
     | 15,762 views

    What does the Bible say about a woman’s role? Is she to be a pastor or what? In this message, Pastor Steve examines a woman’s role in light of 1 Timothy 2:11-12

    1 Timothy 2:11-12 says, “A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.” When Paul gave these instructions to Timothy, he gave three principles regarding women’s ministry in the ...read more

  • Chosen By God

    Contributed by Steve Hereford on Jun 26, 2007
    based on 4 ratings
     | 6,437 views

    What does the Bible teach about election? In this message, Pastor Steve examines this subject in light of Ephesians 1:4.

    Ephesians 1:4 says, "Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him" (emphasis mine). The word “chose” is the Greek word eklego. It means “to pick out, select” (Vine) or “choose out for one’s own self” (Wuest). This word “indicates ...read more

    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 ...read more

  • The Greatest Problem Facing The Church

    Contributed by Steve Hereford on Sep 16, 2006
    based on 7 ratings
     | 14,980 views

    What is the greatest problem facing the church? It is money, politics, morals, or false teaching? In this message, Pastor Steve accesses our greatest need.

    For the past two Wednesday evenings we have looked at the subject of unity in the church. Such unity, as I said, can never come at the expense of the truth. Gordan Clark wrote, “Since God is truth, a contempt for the truth is equally a contempt for God.” He’s right! An attack on the truth is an ...read more

  • Maintaining Spiritual Unity

     | 2,617 views

    What two attitudes destroy the unity of the church? What is the only way given in Scripture to fight against this? Listen as Pastor Steve shows how we are to be involved in "Maintaining Spiritual Unity."

    Tonight we’re looking once again at the portion of Scripture that speaks to the subject of unity in the church. Philippians 2:1-4 says, “Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being ...read more

    Do you know that you have been called to be thankful? In fact the Apostle Paul says that we are "always" to be thankful. Join Pastor Steve as he shares "How to Be Thankful" from 1 Thessalonians 5:18.

    In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, the Apostle Paul says to the believer"s at Thessalonica, "Rejoice always; pray without ceasing: in everything give thanks; for this is God"s will for you in Christ Jesus." God"s will is that we always "rejoice, pray and give thanks." Erwin Lutzer, said, "You can learn to ...read more

  • Our Faithful, Unchanging God Series

    based on 14 ratings
     | 11,314 views

    What is God like? Does He ever change? If He does, how does that effect His people? In this message, Pastor Steve examines the immutability of God and shows how this affects every aspect of our life.

    In our last study together on the doctrine of God, we looked at the existence and nature of God. In the existence of God we said that it is assumed in the Scriptures. William Evans, in his book Great Doctrines of the Bible, says, “It does not seem to have occurred to any of the writers of either ...read more

  • God's Loving Choice: Election

    Contributed by Steve Hereford on Aug 28, 2006
    based on 5 ratings
     | 1,451 views

    What does the Bible say about election and how does it relate to the love of God? In this message, Pastor Steve will show how this most hated doctrine is one in which all Christian must embrace.

    When we consider the love of God we see it manifested in many ways but one that is not too often considered is in the doctrine of election. Throughout the ages this teaching has been debated and considered a doctrine of hate rather than a doctrine of love but the Scriptures say otherwise. Consider ...read more

  • Church For The Churched

    Contributed by Steve Hereford on Aug 25, 2006
    based on 13 ratings
     | 8,969 views

    Who is the church for? Believers or unbelievers? Or to use more contemporary terms - churched or unchurched. Listen today as Pastor Steve addresses who is the church in the midst of the seeker-sensitive movement.

    Recently I was invited to attend a church planters conference in Lake Yale. At that conference I was exposed to various teaching and methods for reaching the unchurched. As I sat there and listened and took notes, I couldn’t help to think how we have somehow missed it when it comes to the purpose ...read more

  • The Responsibility Of Elders In The Church

    Contributed by Steve Hereford on Aug 25, 2006
    based on 11 ratings
     | 2,897 views

    In the Scriptures, Pastors are referred to as "bishop, elder, and overseer." Why are they referred to in this way. In this message, Pastor Steve will examine these and more terms as he talks about the responsibility of elders in the church.

    We have completed our look at what elders are to be and now we’re looking at what elders are to do. In doing that, I would like to define the term that is found in 1 Timothy 3:1. It is the term translated "bishop." The term "bishop" is not a good translation because "it carries modern ...read more

  • Our Triune God Series

    based on 7 ratings
     | 3,896 views

    What does the Bible say about the existence and nature of God? Is it alright to speculate what God is like or is that idolatry? Join Pastor Steve as he teaches on "The Doctrine of God."

    “On January 7, 1855, the minister of New Park Street Chapel, Southwark, England, opened his morning sermon as follows: ‘It has been said by someone that “the proper study of mankind is man.” I will not oppose the idea, but I believe it is equally true that the proper study of God’s elect is God; ...read more
