  • Wandering From The Light Series

    Contributed by Stephen Belokur on Feb 28, 2019

    A person may be walking in the Light of Christ and then take their eyes off from Him. This always leads to the disaster of walking in the darkness if it goes unchecked and unrepented for too long. Don't take the first step in the wrong direction ...

If we claim to have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and more

  • "follow Me"

    Contributed by Dwight Davis on Mar 29, 2019

    Holiness of the believer is a Biblical topic that seems to have been almost totally obscured by the false teaching of "cheap grace." Are Christians actually supposed to be "holier than thou"?

    “Follow Me” The second paragraph of Untied States Declaration of Independence begins with these words; “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the more

  • Find Joy In The Journey - Love - 1 John 2 Series

    Contributed by Michael Mccartney on Feb 10, 2019

    The discovery of Love and the actions of love opens up our eyes to see Jesus, to hear Jesus and to touch Jesus, but the action of hate causes us to be blind to Jesus, deaf to Jesus and out of touch with Jesus. Love puts us in the light while hate traps us in darkness.

    Transition Video: Dennis Swanberg – Easter Sunday Series: Find Joy in the Journey in 2019 Thesis of series: Joy needs to be experienced in the journey of life! But Joy, like any other attitude, can come and go. It is not guaranteed simply because we are born again believers. We must put ourselves more

  • Obeying God's Commands Series

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Mar 7, 2012

    This is the first message in a series of seven. How do we know if we really know God? We live in a day when many people are not even interested in knowing God. They want to live like they want. To know God is the furthest thing from their minds.

  • The Passion Of Fellowship

    Contributed by Steve Mays on Nov 21, 2013

    We may have a relationship with Jesus Christ, but very few of us actually have fellowship with God.

    There are three major themes that we’re going to cover in 1 John 2:3–11. One is that we are going to realize that if we say we have fellowship, then we need to be obedient to God’s Word. There is a major difference between having a fellowship versus having a relationship. We all more
