  • The Gifts Of The Holy Spirit - Part 1 Series

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Feb 7, 2011

    The Gifts of the Holy Spirit has split churches and The Church for thousands of years. Paul delves into this lively and controversial subject in the next three chapters of 1st Corinthians. His reason for the discussion is not to provide a complete guide t

    Chapter 12 might look to some as a right turn in the letter—Paul introducing a totally new subject that has nothing to do with what came before. Although it appears to an answer to yet another question from the Corinthians, the undertone of the letter continues—“let the gospel shine brighter than more

  • The Gifts Of The Holy Spirit

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Jul 31, 2003
    based on 41 ratings

    The gifts of the Spirit have split churches and keep Christians apart – and they bewilder non-Christians – so that the church becomes a circus than a place to get saved. But there are good reasons for the gifts if used properly.

    For an audio copy of this message go to: With all the controversy over spiritual gifts – why have them at all? The gifts of the Spirit have split churches and keep Christians apart – and they bewilder non-Christians – so that the church becomes a circus than a place to get more

  • Going Up Against "God's Man?"

    Contributed by B H Grace on Jul 6, 2015
    based on 1 rating

    Can you ever challenge a preacher and can you ever righteously remove him?

    I just read an article entitled, “Rejecting God-Ordained Leadership in the Church.” The writer was suggesting that we should not resist even ungodly leadership in the Church because God will deal with them. Having seen the abuse of pastors by congregations, I could easily amen this. I more

  • No Power Without Suffering

    Contributed by B H Grace on Apr 20, 2019

    You must walk the walk to get the power.

    Php 3:10 That I may know Him, and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being made conformable unto His death; Every Christian wants to walk in the power of His resurrection, but few want the sufferings and death that came before the resurrection. Dump your easy more

  • Pride And Prejudice Series

    Contributed by Paul Clemente on Jul 17, 2017

    Jesus teaches humility and tells of future hardships but yet the disciples argue who's the greatest!

    Let us continue to worship our God by continuing to learn from the Gospel of Mark; please open your Bibles to Mark 10…. We noted last week nothing is impossible with God but one must humble themselves before God. Look at v1 of Mark 10, a crowd of people came to Jesus, so Jesus taught them. In more

  • Are You Poor? (Hix)

    Contributed by Jimmy Haile on Sep 8, 2013

    It is being able to say, “I can do nothing without Christ!” and in the same breath, you can say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!”

    Matthew 5:3-“Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Attitude-There was a football team one time, that had a lot of good players, they had a lot of talent, they had a good coach, and they were expected to go all the way to the playoffs maybe even the super bowl, more

  • Friendly Fire

    Contributed by Eric Shrewsberry on Apr 5, 2001
    based on 140 ratings

    Friendly Fire is when you are hit by the ammunition from your own troops. How many church members have been injured from our friendly fire?

    Friendly Fire Introduction: A few years ago, back in 1990, we were involved in what was known as the Persian Gulf War. Our troops took on the Iraqi forces out in the desert of Kuwait. In those two months, January and February, we won an outstanding victory, and we had relatively few casualties. more

  • Blessed Are The Meek Series

    Contributed by Charles Salmon on Jul 11, 2004
    based on 14 ratings

    Meekness precludes certain undesirable traits, enhances all desirable traits, and brings great reward.

    Blessed Are the Meek Matt. 5:5 INTRO.: Webster defines "meek" as "mild of temper; patient under suffering, longsuffering." The meek person is one who makes no undue demands upon himself, God, or his fellow man. He recognizes his abilities and responsibilities and is content in the more

  • Repel Or Reconcile

    Contributed by B H Grace on Jul 28, 2020

    Are you part of the solution or the problem causing people to be repelled rather than reconciled to Christ?

    2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in more

  • Persecution Can Be Good

    Contributed by B H Grace on Jan 30, 2021

    We grow soft and cold without it. Sometimes it takes the fire of persecution for us to seek the fire of God.

    1 Peter 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? 18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? 19 Wherefore let them that more

  • Uniting The Body

    Contributed by B H Grace on Apr 7, 2021

    We need to stop the dividing of the Body for carnal reasons. You cannot believe that Jesus is pleased with our dissecting His Body for our selfish agendas.

    For those who follow me, you know every morning I listen to the pastor of Times Square Church in NYC. The congregation of over 8K are from 100+ nationalities. That is deemed impossible by common consensus of church people who say we need seeker churches adapted to various subcultures and more

  • Supporting Our New Deacons

    Contributed by Dave Mcfadden on Oct 3, 2016

    A message delivered as a charge to the church on the occasion of the ordination of new Deacons.

    This passage not only speaks to the qualifications for new Deacons (v. 3 - faithful, reputable, spiritual, maturing, responsible), but to the primary purpose for Deacons in a local church. The purpose for Deacons is to guard the unity of the church. In the Book of Acts, Satan attacks the church more

  • Biblical Christianity: The Centrality Of Christ Series

    Contributed by Dan Cale on Aug 22, 2005
    based on 7 ratings

    This is the second of a 4 part series comparing the early church of Acts 1-5 to today. This message looks at the idea of making Christ the center of our lives and the things that keep us from it.

    Biblical Christianity Pt 2 ¡V The Centrality of Christ Colossians 3:1-17 Acts 2:43-47 - Acts 4:31-35 Tell me this morning ¡V do these passages describe the church of the 21st Century? Is it ok that we don¡¦t look like the early church? Is that alright with you? I confess as I did last week more
