  • 3 Easter B

    Contributed by Roger Haugen on Apr 30, 2003
    based on 69 ratings

    In our worship Jesus comes among us and tells us "Peace be with You." Our worship reflects the events of the resurrection.

    3 Easter B Luke 24:36b-48 4 May 2003 Rev. Roger Haugen A young pastor was fishing for comments at the door following one of his sermons that he felt was particularly profound. One older man responded, “Sometimes we come to church because of the pastor and sometimes we come in spite of the more

  • Gatekeeper, Gateopener

    Contributed by Joseph Smith on Nov 19, 2000
    based on 77 ratings

    The pastor has two roles that must not be reduced -- a gatekeeper to guard against useless ideas and hateful attitudes, and a gateopener to let in God's surprises.

    Do you think the Lord has a sense of humor? I do. I see a delicious little coincidence that God’s word drops in our laps today. Some of us remember a 70’s TV program, the Mary Tyler Moore show. If you remember that program, you will recall that sweet, nice, loveable Mary lived in an apartment more

  • Desperate Enough To Pray

    Contributed by Tim Hinrichs on Oct 16, 2011
    based on 4 ratings

    Jesus teaches us the key to releasing his power in the world and that is through corporate prayer. It is also the key to growth in the church - are we desperate enough to pray together for God’s power to come down?

    Korea is home to many of the largest Christian churches in the world. They have one of the largest Baptist churches, largest Methodist churches, largest Presbyterian churches, largest Pentecostal churches. In fact the largest congregation in the world, the Yoido Full Gospel Church in Seoul has over more

  • On Membership Part Two Series

    Contributed by Ken Mckinley on Jul 16, 2023

    the Bible clearly teaches that Christians are members of the Body of Christ. But is local church membership Biblical? We examine this in this study. This is not a typical sermon, but more of a Bible study lesson for our congregation.

    In doing some serious study on membership and what that looks like in the Church at a local level one encounters a potential problem. It just isn’t there. That’s not to say it is bad, wrong, or sinful to have formal membership rolls, as having such is very practical and quite helpful to local more

  • The Places Series

    Contributed by Jon Daniels on Mar 6, 2022

    Based on Acts 2:42-47 - The Church is not a place, but there are places that the Church ought to be.

    “THE PLACES” Acts 2:42-47 FBCF – 3/6/22 Jon Daniels INTRO – Roll call in school. Answered, “Here,” or “Present.” Means, “I’m in my place where I’m supposed to be. I’m ready for my assignment.” Today, continue w/ our series on “The ChURch” from the book of Acts w/ a message entitled, “The more

  • "you Don't Have To Go To Church To Be A Christian" Series

    Contributed by Jonathan Kruschel on Oct 6, 2019
    based on 1 rating

    This common reason for not coming to church shows two fundamental misunderstandings: 1) what is a Christian and 2) what is church. Help someone see that being a Christian means being part of a church.

    People are not going to church as much as they used to. I could give you the statistics, but I don’t think that I need to because you’ve probably personally observed or experienced it yourself. You may have seen it with your own family members, your co-workers, your friends, in the conversations more

  • Jesus' Opord Series

    Contributed by Sean Lester on Jan 7, 2007
    based on 1 rating

    This message frames the great commission as an operations order from our Commander-in-Chief, Jesus Christ.

    God’s Operation Order to the Church Sean Lester January 7, 2007 Text: Matthew 28:19, Galatians 12:8-10, Introductory thoughts a. As an officer candidate in Army National Guard I am required to learn how to lead troops. The first procedure in troop leading is receiving and understanding a more

  • Part 10 - Matthew 8:18-34 - When Jesus Skips Out On Church, You Know Someth Series

    Contributed by Ross Cochrane on Mar 2, 2010
    based on 7 ratings

    It's interesting to me that Jesus called His disciples to leave the crowd and His disciples and they experience some spiritual warfare as they cross to the other side of the lake. Why would Jesus miss this opportunity, when He had a crowd gathered?

    Part 10 - Matthew 8:18-34 - WHEN JESUS SKIPS OUT ON CHURCH, YOU KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG! I remember as a young student Pastor being invited to a Church for afternoon tea. They said they wanted to pray for me. What I didn't realise is that they wanted to pray for me to be their Pastor. At the end more

  • Doing It Together

    Contributed by Denn Guptill on Jun 18, 2021
    based on 1 rating

    As we move away from COVID restrictions this message was to remind folks why we worship in person

    I never thought I would see the day in Canada that Christians would be unable to come together, in person, to worship. Then again, I never imagined a Global Pandemic either. The joke with pastors is that we all skipped the class on pastoring in a pandemic. I’ve been asked many times if what we are more

  • He Taught Them Many Parables… (The Parable Of The Wheat And Tares) # 2

    Contributed by Dr. Odell Belger on Apr 15, 2022

    Again, I would like to remind you that parables were one of the favorite tools the Lord used in teaching spiritual truths.

    The Lord would take something physical that they all were familiar with, and use it to teach them a valuable spiritual lesson. This method of teaching is referred to as parables. And the Bible said that He taught them many parables. For example, in our scripture today, He used the parable of “The more

  • Enemy Is Under Your Feet

    Contributed by Bala Samson on Sep 19, 2020
    based on 1 rating

    The devil reminds you of your past and tries to weaken you; however, it is time to put your feet on his neck and choke him.

    The enemy is under your feet! Joshua 10:24 "Come near, put your feet on the necks of these kings." So they came near and put their feet on their necks.” This scripture is too awesome, I want you guys to really comprehend the spiritual truth behind this atom bomb verse and get more

  • Re-Creating The Effective Pastoral Minister Series

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Mar 5, 2015

    It is important that those involved in pastoral ministry be focused on their goal, not on their comfort.

    Thursday of the third Week in Lent Joy of the Gospel Jesus shares with us today an unforgettable phrase: “He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.” The image this summons up is of a shepherd and His flock. Jesus came to gather together the more

    The church is God's plan A. There is no plan B.

    EVERYONE Gathering Hebrews 10:19-25 Rev. Brian Bill April 15-16, 2023 I get a kick out of church signs.

  • The Weeping Prophet

    Contributed by Colin Bain on Feb 23, 2007
    based on 14 ratings

    Describes and contrasts the hearts of the Pastor, the People and God, leading to reconciliation.

    Heart of the matter Have you ever tried to buy something in an electronics store recently? I don’t know which training program they are using, but it seem that they work on the principle that if the salesman talks long enough about stuff the customer doesn’t care about, then the customer buys more
