  • Our Sovereign Lord Series

    Contributed by Matthew Kratz on May 31, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    In Colossians 1:15–19, Paul reveals our Lord’s true identity by viewing Him in relation to three things: 1) The Father (Colossians 1:15), 2) The Universe (Colossians 1:16-17), and 3) The Church (Colossians 1:18-19).

    If there are two things that have a tremendous bearing on our future experiences, they are assumptions and expectation. We tend to make assumptions about people and expect certain actions accordingly. As the Jews interacted with Christ, they assumed He was coming to remove the political and more

  • Identity 3– The True Identity Colossians 1:16-17 Series

    Contributed by Joseph Rodgers on Apr 11, 2019

    Who we are is determined by spiritual birth.

    For a few weeks we’ve been discussing what’s arguably the most critical teaching in the Christian faith – accepting and living in who we truly are in Christ. We call this our identity in Christ. And as we shared last week – as believers in Christ – our identity is not determined by who we are or more

  • Who's Boss

    Contributed by Russ Barksdale on Mar 19, 2019

    Who’s boss? Is Jesus Christ really the Lord of your life? At this very moment, Jesus Christ is the Lord of your life, or He is not. Either you have surrendered your life to Him and He is running the show, or you are still at the help of your life.

    Who’s Boss? Colossians 1:15-18 ; Philippians 2:5-11 1. God said He was Acts 2:36 2. Because of creation Colossians 1:15-18 3. Jesus said He was John 13:13 4. It is His destiny Phil 2:5-11 5. Because He bought us 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 6. God’s plan is best. Jeremiah 29:11 Who’s boss? more

  • Living At The Centre Of The Universe

    Contributed by Michael Stark on Jan 26, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    Christians are secure in Christ. Because this is true, it behooves us to know Him--really know Who He is. The message explores Paul's revelation of Jesus as very God in his letter to the congregation in Colossae.

    [1] “[Christ] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, more

  • Miracle Of The Method Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Dec 17, 2018

    Baby Jesus in the manger looks so small. Yet this same moment is a miracle of salvation where absolute supremacy, authority, power, and the fullness of creation is embodied in this baby. We do not follow a small Jesus.

    You can listen to the full message here:- Advent Miracles Colossians 1:15-18 The Miracle of the Method The Encyclopaedia of Jewish Medical Ethics tells us that the average weight of a Jewish new-born is 3250 grams … which is 7lb more

  • First In Everything! (A Christmas Sermon)

    Contributed by David Mende on Dec 1, 2018
    based on 2 ratings

    Christ deserves the first place in all things: in our lives, in our families, in our time, in our conversations, in our studies, in our mission and ministry, in our jobs and businesses, in our decisions, and in everything! I would be delighted if you could rate this sermon and give brief feedback.

    INTRODUCTION (SECURE ATTENTION) & BACKGROUND OF THE PASSAGE: PRAY before starting the sermon. We live in a pluralistic society and thus presenting the uniqueness of Christ is a great challenge. Some see Jesus as a great teacher. Some see Him as a prophet. Others perceive Him as a great more

  • Church – The Essential Service Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Nov 22, 2018

    Sometimes Christians treat the church as an emergency service … a place to go when you need spiritual help and security, but to be avoided when all is well. But the church is the only institution which can stand against the gates of Hades. Therefore church is an essential service.

    You can listen to the full message here:- Message Matthew 16:13-20 Church – The Essential Service What do we do when we have an emergency? When there is fire … we call the Fire Brigade When there is a street fight … we call the more

  • The Center Of The Universe

    Contributed by Jason Jones on Nov 12, 2018

    We must decide what lies at the center of our universe

    Contributed by Rev. Matthew Parker on Nov 3, 2018

    This message looks at the pre-incarnate Christ.

    Jesus in Creation - Finding Jesus in the Old Testament - Part 1 Intro Story: When I was young believer, I wasn’t really clear on who Jesus is. I had a sense that he was divine, that He had the power to forgive sins, and I believed that he had given his life for me, taken away my sins in order to more

  • Eternal Series

    Contributed by Gordon Pike on Aug 28, 2018

    Our days are like pearls strung together on a thread. One event triggers another but we can’t foresee what’s to come. Not so for God. God dwells in eternity. He exists in the past and in the present and in the future … all at the same moment.

    What is truly the one thing that money can’t buy? It’s time! Nobody … and do mean NOBODY … not even Donald Trump or Bill Gates or George Soros or Oprah Winfrey or Warren Buffet or Mark Zuckerberg can buy themselves a single second of time … as Steve Jobs found out on October 5th, 2011.

  • Jesus - Creator And Redeemer

    Contributed by Brady Boyd on Aug 16, 2018

    The central figure, the center piece of the entire Bible is Jesus! Paul is evoking the language of Genesis – the story of creation. Jesus was present, then and now!

    Colossians 1 Jesus – Creator and Redeemer August 19, 2018 This letter is full of epic and evocative language and is one of Paul’s shortest. Colossians 1:15-20 NIV He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by him all things were created: things in heaven and more
