  • Why Missions Matter Series

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Oct 5, 2011
    based on 4 ratings

    Through missions we share the love and grace of God in Christ Jesus in some of the most real and tangible ways, and in so doing, we ourselves also experience Christ in new and profound ways.

    Today we are going to talk about missions and why missions matter.

    based on 17 ratings

    A unique approach to the blessing and jugdment of God. Everything God is is on his right - there is NOTHING left to be at his left.

We’re always hearing in church about the power and the glory – but I wanted to remind everyone today that God has a left more

  • The Horrors Of Hell

    Contributed by Scott Coltrain on Mar 26, 2007
    based on 35 ratings

    Jesus taught more about Hell than He did about Heaven. In fact, for every mention of Heaven, He mentions Hell twice as often. I want to look at four things that Jesus reveals about the horrors of Hell.

    One of the tragic facts revealed by Jesus is that the majority of the human race will spend eternity in Hell. Jesus pleads, in Matthew 7:13-14, “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is more
