This is the sixth message in the series on Faith. Many Christians allow ministers to speak into their lives without "fact checking" what they say against Scripture. This can cause them to shipwreck their faith.
This is the sixth message in this series on Faith. The underlying theme of the series has been our responsibility for faith either manifesting or not manifesting in our lives. For a person to say “I have faith” and not produce “faith results” means that person is not walking in faith the way he ...read more

In this message, we're going to take a detailed look at I Corinthians 13:4-7
My wife and I and our son and his girlfriend saw Dionne Warwick in concert recently. She sounded good at age 76. She sang all of her signature songs including “What the world needs now is love sweet love. It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of.” There’s more truth to this than most ...read more

This message continues the series on faith. It references "The Spectre of the Gun," my absolute favorite episode of the original Star Trek series.
I am a fan of the original Star Trek series. My absolute favorite episode is “The Spectre of the Gun,” which premiered in 1968, the show’s third season. Here’s the storyline: After violating Melkotian air space, Captain Kirk and members of his crew are taken from the Enterprise and sent to die ...read more
