  • Living Stones Series

    Contributed by C. Philip Green on Apr 15, 2021

    If you want to overcome your fear of introducing people to Jesus, KNOW that you are part of God’s holy temple and God’s special people, designed to be a living display of His greatness. Then BE the witness God has called you to be.

    The abbot of a monastery called a novice into his office and instructed him to give the homily at the next morning's chapel. The novice was struck with fear. The next morning, chapel came. He stood in the pulpit. The brothers were there. His hands were trembling. His knees were knocking. His more

  • The Successful Failure Series

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Apr 6, 2021

    Peter was the greatest failure in his abusive power. And yet we see that he not only survives, but he does so quite successfully. He is able to stay on top as the leader of the 12. He does everything wrong, and still comes out a winner.

    Apollo 13 was one of the biggest flops in the history of our space program, and yet it was also one of the most celebrated. Can a catastrophic failure also be a colossal success? Just ask the three astronauts of that ill fated flight. It was 1970, and they were on their way to the moon when an more

  • A Declaration And A Rebuke Series

    Contributed by Donald Whitchard on Mar 31, 2021

    Jesus has been active for over two years, and His disciples have been there to witness His teaching and miracles. He asks them a question that we all need to answer: "Who do men say that I am?". Your answer determines your eternal destiny.

  • Confession Of Peter And Jesus Series

    Contributed by Rev. Andrew B Natarajan on Mar 7, 2021

  • Pilgrim’s Way

    Contributed by Chuck Brooks on Mar 1, 2021

    We all have family and friends who are members of the local church and may not be a member of the universal church. So I feel the need to teach a little on what it means to be a member of the universal church.

    In Matthew 16:18 Jesus said, "You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it." The church here refers to the universal church, which comprises all the redeemed believers who are born again by the Spirit, without limit of time more

  • "Jesus, The Exclusive Savior”

    Contributed by Clarence Eisberg on Feb 24, 2021

    The consensus- that some things were right others wrong is now replaced by a new "trinity": worship tolerance, celebrate diversity, praise pluralism, equity not equality. Woe to the man who dares speak against the New Trinity. A story: confession, a fable. John Stott, quote.

    In Jesus Holy Name Lent II February 28, 2021 Text: Mark 8:27,29 Redeemer “Jesus, The Exclusive Savior” We live in a “postmodern” age. If that term is new to you, it simply means that we live in an age in which more

  • "Online Versus In-Person Service”

    Contributed by Benjamin Utomo on Oct 12, 2020

    After more than six months, our congregation enjoys the convenience of online services, would that create a new habit that will continue even after the pandemic ends? Can on-line replace in-person Sunday service?

    “Online Versus In-Person Service” Opening: A 2019 survey published by Erin Duffin on Jan 17, 2020, showed 23 percent of Americans attend a church or synagogue every week, 10% almost every week, and 12% at least once a month. So, 45% more
