Generations Sermon Series

From Genesis to Revelation, there is God – a God of love, holiness, righteousness and justice, a God who is present and involved throughout every generation (Psalm 102:12). As we go through a 30-thousand-foot overview of the entire Bible, you will see Him in the laws, in the land, in the covenant, and in the promise of salvation for all who believe. You’ll never read your Bible the same way again.

Sermon Listing

Jan 13 2013 Genesis

Brad Bell

The Bible begins with the book of Genesis, an account of the creation of the world and the foundation of humanity and our relationship with God. Riddled with mystery and complexity, every page takes…

Jan 20 2013 Exodus

Jerrod Rumley

The Book of Exodus is about one thing: God. God pursues His people, God uses Moses to deliver His people, God proves His power through supernatural experiences, God sets up the rules for how He will…

Jan 27 2013 Leviticus

Brad Bell

Few books have caused people to become discouraged as they read through the Bible like Leviticus. Offerings, sacrifices, emissions, feasts and priestly garments cause us to miss the main point of the…

Feb 3 2013 Numbers / Deuteronomy

Brad Bell

"It was easy for God to get the people out of Egypt, but harder to get Egypt out of the people." You've probably heard us mention the expression multiple times, but the truth of it becomes clear in…

Feb 10 2013 Job

Brad Bell

"You've got the patience of Job." People have tossed that phrase around for years, but few truly understand its meaning. Job was a righteous man who endured tremendous calamity, due in large part to a…

Feb 17 2013 Joshua / Judges / Ruth

Brad Bell

This week we embark on a three-book journey through Joshua, Judges and Ruth. As the deliverer (Moses) fades into the pages of history, a new leader rises in Joshua to take the nation into the land…

Feb 24 2013 1 Samuel

Brad Bell

Be careful what you ask for. The people of God had grown weary and were seeking a king, "like the other nations." Although God had been with them, they wanted a strong military leader like the ones…

Mar 3 2013 2 Samuel (1 Chronicles)

PJ Lewis

We continue our trek through the Bible in our Generations Series, looking at the life of King David in 2 Samuel and 1 Chronicles. We concentrate on 2 Samuel 11-21, and on a couple of misconceptions…

Mar 24 2013 Psalms

Brad Bell

Few books capture the raw reality of life with God like the book of Psalms. Through 150 chapters of poetic worship, the reader is brought through the entire spectrum of emotions. Worship, thanksgiving…

Apr 7 2013 1 Kings (2 Chronicles)

Brad Bell

This week we witness the rise and fall of Solomon. The monarchy dissolves and a revolt occurs, taking 10 tribes to the north under a new king, setting the stage for the continued conflict between the…

Apr 14 2013 2 Kings 1-10 (Obadiah)

Jerrod Rumley

During an age of kings and kingdoms, prophets stand up in a historically dark time for the people of God, and they speak great truth and insight to a lost nation. It takes courage to stand up and face…

Apr 21 2013 Song of Solomon / Proverbs / Ecclesiastes

Brad Bell

This week we close the book on the life of Solomon. We saw his rise to power and the expanse of his influence. Now we look at the three books of wisdom literature that he wrote or contributed to…

Apr 28 2013 2 Kings 11-15:7 (Joel / Jonah / Amos / Hosea)

PJ Lewis

We continue through our Generations series, focusing on some additional kings and the messages of four prophets. As we examine our character and our commitment to God, it is important to note God's…

May 5 2013 2 Kings 15:8-20:21 (Isaiah / Micah)

May 19 2013 Daniel / Ezekiel / Lamentations

Brad Bell

The city of Jerusalem has fallen and the Babylonians have taken the Southern Kingdom of Judah captive. What's next for the people of God? Through prophetic revelation, He reveals His plan for human…

Jun 13 2013 Between the Old Testament and New Testament

Rick Taylor

The Bible is silent for over 400 years after the Old Testament ends until the New Testament starts. Historically, we know what happened during that time, and we also know how some of the events…

Jun 23 2013 Matthew / Mark / Luke / John

PJ Lewis

We pick up our Generation series with a leap into the New Testament, and a look at the Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Many say these books all cover the same thing – the life of Jesus on earth…

Sep 1 2013 Acts 1-2

Brad Bell

This week we dive into the origins, intent and movement of the church. We trace the steps of the two key leaders in the early church (Peter and Paul) and watch this gathering of young believers as…

Sep 8 2013 Acts 3-12

Brad Bell

In the early chapters of Acts we see the birth of the New Testament church. However, the chapters that follow provide insight into the purging and maturation of this fledging body of believers. Marked…

Sep 15 2013 James

Shea Sumlin

James, who is also the half-brother of Jesus, writes what is generally accepted as the first book written in our New Testament, to a persecuted group of new believers, encouraging them to hold fast to…

Sep 22 2013 Acts 13-15:35 (Galatians)

Brad Bell

What does it mean to be "free in Christ"? If we are free, what does it mean to live free? The book of Galatians points us, not only to justification by faith but a life continually lived by faith. We…

Sep 29 2013 Acts 15:36-18:22 (1, 2 Thessalonians)

Shea Sumlin

What does it mean to live with the end in mind, living in light of Christ's return? Those are the exact questions the Thessalonians had for Paul on his second missionary journey in Acts 17-18. As a…

Oct 6 2013 Acts 18:23-20:38 (1, 2 Corinthians)

Brad Bell

Acceptance and tolerance have quickly replaced obedience and accountability as our culture has rejected the notion of living to a divine standard, instead choosing to pursue a lifestyle of indulgence…

Oct 20 2013 Acts 21-28

Rick Taylor

In Acts 21-28, Paul is on his way back to Jerusalem after three years of teaching in Ephesus. He ends this third missionary journey by collecting an offering for the poor and destitute Christians who…

Oct 27 2013 Romans

Brad Bell

Few books have shaped the landscape of Christianity like the book of Romans. It has shamed the brightest of theologians and brought comfort to the simplest of minds. Outlining what a life of faith…

Nov 3 2013 Ephesians / Colossians

Shea Sumlin

The books of Ephesians and Colossians are two of four prison epistles (along with Philippians and Philemon) that the Apostle Paul penned while on house arrest in Rome. These two books are very similar…

Nov 10 2013 Philippians / Philemon

Brad Bell

Oh to have "joy in all things." For many of us, our joy is dependent upon circumstances. When life is good, we have joy, but when life goes south, our countenance changes. Written from house arrest in…

Nov 17 2013 Hebrews

Shea Sumlin

The world around us offers a multitude of options when it comes to who we should follow, what we should invest our lives in, and where we should look for our significance and salvation. However, the…

Nov 24 2013 1, 2 Timothy / Titus

Brad Bell

Have you ever sat with someone close to death and listened to their last words? If you have, you know the tremendous weight someone’s final thoughts carry with them. Those words, few as they may be…

Dec 1 2013 1, 2 Peter

Brad Bell

Tucked deep in the later portions of the New Testament are eight short chapters written by the Apostle Peter. Remarkably the letters are void of the brash, impetuous, pride-filled tone that colors his…

Dec 8 2013 1, 2, 3 John / Jude

Shea Sumlin

Throughout the Bible, two of the most distinguishing marks of Christ's followers are truth and love. There are dozens and dozens of commands in the Bible for God's people to be a people of truth and a…

Dec 15 2013 Revelation

Brad Bell

The book of Revelation has caused much concern over the speculation of what is to come, but amidst all the panic and conspiracy theories lies the heart of the entire message: He will reign forever…
