  • The Fall Series

    Contributed by Tim Hbc on Oct 7, 2008
    based on 2 ratings

    So often we ask the question WHY? Why is the world the way it is. Why does bad stuff happen, and happen to me? Genesis 3 is God’s answer to that question.

    Introduction There are many questions we could ask. Such as... When you go to a cinema to watch a film, which arm rest is yours? And why do the ‘Alphabet Song’ and ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’ have the same tune?’ And why is it that if you blow on a dog’s face he goes crazy, but if you take him more

    So we need to not be paralyzed by bad stuff, but in the midst of such tragedies, failures and sinfulness, there is one thing we need to do: remember who God is. That is what Nehemiah 9 is about. When you have bad things happen, first and foremost, remembe

    [Re]ality Nehemiah 9:5b-9, 32-38 We’ve all been there. When life is falling apart, things seem to be going against us and we descend into a pit that’s darker and darker.

    Satan doesn’t destroy you all at once, its little by little. Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of more

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Sep 27, 2010
    based on 4 ratings

    In today's politically correct world it seems more and more Christians are swallowing some pretty bad stuff in order to 'get along.' The culture pushes back to get us to conform to the values of our culture. Paul comes against that and says you should thi

    In lesson three Paul takes aim, not at superstar pastors, but the philosophies and values of the world around us. The Corinthians were very much in the middle of a culture that valued philosophy and discussion as a way to arrive at truth. Paul's time before the Areopagus in Acts 17 was like that, more

  • Surrendering Our Speech Series

    Contributed by Harold Laubach Jr on Feb 4, 2012
    based on 2 ratings

    This sermon is about surrending our speech, the bad language, but also the lies, gossip and name calling. It points out surrender of speech also includes encouraging words, and building others up.

    Five weeks ago we began speaking about Surrender. We learned what God wants from us. The first thing, and essentially if you think about it, the only thing He wants from us. Everything else about having a life of faith, leading a holy life and being a follower of Christ, comes from fully more

  • Focus On God's Promises

    Contributed by Don Schultz on Jul 29, 2013

    God wants to us focus. But on what? And what distracts us?

    Psalm 119:148 "My eyes stay open through the watches of the night, that I may meditate on your promises." Well, it's official. The number one cause of car accidents among all drivers, especially drivers under the age of 20, is… do you know? What is the number one cause of car accidents, and more
