  • Ibelieve: Jesus Christ Series

    Contributed by Lynn Malone on Aug 26, 2013

    What we believe about Jesus Christ matters.

    Has this ever happened to you? You get home from work. It’s been a long day. All you want to do is sit down, enjoy a nice meal, maybe catch a little TV, and go to bed. Your plan is interrupted by the ringing of the phone. You answer, and the person on the other end begins, more

  • I Will Build My Church

    Contributed by Jason Smith on Sep 12, 2013

    There are many misconceptions about what Jesus' universal church is. Is it a denomination? Is it all churches combined into one? Is it the clergy? This sermon deals with many of these misconceptions and shows what God reveals about His church.

    In the context of Matthew 16, we see what many people think about Jesus. It is interesting that so many people saw His miracles and signs, and had such contrasting responses. This seems to be the main point of this section we will look at today. Many saw the miracles and signs (the Sadducees and more

  • What Is The Church? (Reworked) Series

    Contributed by Tom Shepard on Sep 25, 2013
    based on 7 ratings

    This is the reworking of a sermon I wrote several years ago. The Church is: 1. The church is a fellowship. 2. The church is a family. 3. The church is a flock. 4. The church is a body.

    What Is The Church? Our text today is found in Matthew chapter sixteen. Follow along with me as I read: "Now when Jesus came into the district of Caesarea Philippi, He was asking His disciples, "Who do people say that the Son of Man is?" And they said, "Some say John the Baptist; and others, more

  • Who Do Men Say I Am? Series

    Contributed by Perry Greene on Feb 15, 2012
    based on 4 ratings

    It is interesting to poll the crowd to see what others think of Jesus (Yeshua). What matters, though is what YOU think of him. Understanding Jesus (Yeshua) impacts the actions of our lives.

    1. St. John’s University is apparently known for being a theological school where intellectualism is highly regarded. Someone wrote the following graffiti on one of the walls there: Jesus said unto them: “Who do you say that I am?” And they replied: “You are the more

  • The Apostolic Church

    Contributed by James Thornton on Sep 17, 2012
    based on 14 ratings

    The church is not an organization but an organism.

    Many people try to fit the church into a mold they think is best suited. In other words, they try to force the church in to a function they think will fit within the framework they have established. The one size fit all pattern does not work for the church. The church is not rules regulations more

    A message laying out the case for Jesus, using evidences allowed in courtrooms. Primarily aimed at seekers, but even mature Christians will gain from hearing this message. Inspired by Sean McDowell’s GODQUEST series.

    When you think of Jesus, what mental image or picture comes to mind? Do you see Him as this indescribable and unknowable figure who lives in the sky, or do you imagine Him as a very personal confidante that walks beside you wherever you go?

  • Son Of The Living God

    Contributed by Stephen Belokur on Mar 11, 2014

    Who do men say that I am? This is an awesome passage showing that the knowledge of who Jesus is comes from only God Himself. This is a grand statement on the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Verse 18 however has been hijacked and the truth must be told.

    This week was the beginning of lent. Lent was based on a 40 day fast that some people did in the early church attempting to emulate the 40 day fast of Jesus that took place immediately after His baptism. Over the years it has become connected with the 40 days preceding the resurrection of Jesus more
