    Peace is central to Christmas. Jesus came to heal the age-old fracture and bring us peace with God and he's the only one who can.

    What does Christmas mean to you? What do you like best about Christmas? Spending time with family and friends? Christmas trees? Turkey roasts? Christmas puddings and brandy butter? Stockings?

  • Crescendo (August 18, 2019).

    Contributed by John Williams Iii on Aug 14, 2020
     | 688 views

    Jesus shared with his audience then and his congregation today that life is not always a rose garden. Life is not a dress rehearsal. Some who are open to the gospel are often rejected by those who oppose it and sometimes they are family members.

    CRESCENDO Text: Luke 12:49 - 56 Have you ever had something happen that made your Adrenalin glands kick in instant overdrive when you were almost asleep? It said that Beethoven would sometimes shock his audiences with a shift from soft music to abrupt harsh noise. Imagine sitting ...read more

     | 5,289 views

    When confronted with a choice, we know what Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah chose. Are we a church of Hananiahs, Mishaels, and Azariahs? I pray to God we never have to find out … but if we do, I hope and pray the choice is clear.

    Somewhere in the world … right now as I am speaking to you … a Christian has a gun pointed at their head because of what they believe. Somewhere in the world someone is going to lose their head or their life today because they refuse to give up their faith or deny Jesus Christ. Right now, as we ...read more

  • The Blessings Of Hardships

    Contributed by Rian Adams on Aug 26, 2019
     | 1,711 views

    Jesus said he came to, "send fire on the earth." This sermon takes a unique approach on this idea and uses the fire metaphor as a purging of the things inside us that hinder us from becoming who we can be through God.

    The Blessing of Hardships Since this Gospel reading is intense, I thought I’d begin by admitting something kind of funny about it. When I read it this week, I pictured Jesus at a Charlie Daniels concert singing, “Fire on the mountain run boys run.” It also made me wonder, “… how am I supposed ...read more

  • The Holy Spirit Of Witness And Division Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Oct 21, 2018
     | 2,020 views

    The Spirit empowers, but the Spirit also divides. Because the Holy Spirit causes us to change our lives, and to summon our family and friends to the Christian way of life, conflict often emerges in relationships.

    Thursday of the 29th Week in Course 2018 The phrase, “fire that Our Lord came to cast down upon the earth” is reminiscent of an encounter Jesus had in his earthly life with James and John, sons of Zebedee. Some town had refused hospitality to Jesus and the disciples, so those two asked Jesus for ...read more

     | 3,183 views

    A study of Jesus' teaching that He did not come to bring peace to the earth and how we need to "fire it up" instead of "watering it down."
