  • 3. Handling Fears

    Contributed on Jun 28, 2011

    We handle fear by affirming God is in control, with prayer, and obedience!

    In our text today, there are 3 main questions we will ask: 1. Do things happen by chance? 2. Is it alright to have fears? 3. Can we question God? Many of us go through life either having these questions unanswered or we don’t think about the importance of the answers to these questions. Knowing more

  • 4. Responding To The Good Work Of God

    Contributed on Jul 5, 2011

    What great things has God done and is doing for us and how are we responding to this Holy God?

Today in our passage we will note another truth which supports that God is Almighty: Nothing is impossible with God! Maybe you more

    The quality of our worship of God is not totally dependent on a worship team or the preacher; it is a matter of knowledge and heart!

    We are to live lives based on God’s perfect time by walking daily with Jesus at His pace not our own!

    Last week we noted, If you want to experience this glorious God, find out what He is doing then join Him!

  • 11. Christ’s Childhood

    Contributed on Aug 22, 2011

    As Christians, we have responsibilities on earth (family, work, school, society, etc…), but we must always remember where we ultimately belong (we are citizens of heaven)!

    When Jesus Christ was on earth, He was fully man and fully God! This of course is a mystery, but it is truth. This is similar to the truth and mystery of God is One but exists in Three Persons. If Jesus Christ was fully man and fully God on earth, how was His growing up? God gives us a glimpse more

    Water baptism is only a symbol of what has happened in a person’s heart!

    As a church, one of our Statement of Faith is: Water baptism and the Lord’s Supper are ordinances to be observed by the Church during the present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation. We also do not require water baptism for membership. Why do we say this? Being saved more

    based on 1 rating

    If we do not allow anything to get in the way of following Jesus Christ, we will be “fishers of men” as well, leading them to be saved from their sins!

    A couple of questions to start out with: Who was the first person that Jesus called to be one of the 12 Disciples? Open your Bibles briefly to John 1:37….. Now, what was the big Lake or Sea near Nazareth where Jesus grew up? Of the original 12, how many were fishermen? = at least 7 more

  • 21. True Disciples Of Christ

    Contributed on Oct 31, 2011

    A disciple is simply a pupil not necessarily a true disciple of Christ even though they follow Christ.

    When someone says they are Christian, what do you think they mean?? There are too many definitions of Christianity out there. Which one is right? Let me ask this important question: What is the main root word of the word “Christian”?? Since the main root of the word Christian is Christ, the more

    Master Jesus is committed to teaching us everyday and His desire is for every Christian to be more and more like Him (“everyone who is fully trained will be like his teacher.

    Who is Jesus to you?? In John 13:13 Jesus said, "You call me ’Teacher’ and ’Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am.” Jesus is Lord and Jesus is Master Teacher! If Jesus is our Lord, we are to worship Him ALWAYS! If Jesus is our Master Teacher, we are to learn from Him more

    based on 4 ratings

    We live daily with physical truths without questioning; shouldn’t we also live with spiritual truths in the same way?

    There are many truths in the physical world to which we live with everyday without thinking about it. For example, if I let go of this mug of coffee, what will happen??? It’s a given that gravity exists and glass will likely break at impact and liquid spilled will spread out! Therefore, I will more

  • 26. Doubting Who Jesus Is

    Contributed on Dec 12, 2011
