Apr 4 2012 Chronology of the Holy Week

Brad Bell

Prepping for this past week’s message was a treat. Over the years of ministry, I had put together bits and pieces of the timeline, but never assembled a chronology of the entire week. As I was preparing, the "Remember, Don't Forget" concept came to mind and brought back memories of the celebratory… More

Mar 28 2012 Thoughts from the Study - The Holy Week

Brad Bell

Have you ever wondered how the final week of the life of Christ played out? What was the so called "triumphal entry" and why was it significant? Was it truly "Palm Sunday", when did He cleanse the temple, when did He eat the passover meal, and what were the final events of His earthly life? Join us… More

We have covered marriage, divorce, remarriage, and now to "the rest" (:12) Paul gives specific instructions to those who's marriages have been forever changed due to one of the spouses coming to faith in Jesus Christ.

Mar 15 2012 "Gospel" - a definition

Jerrod Rumley

One of the biggest disservices we can do as a church culture is to use words that we assume everyone knows the definitions to. A sermon can be well prepared, truth-filled, and even entertaining but if the listener doesn't understand our lingo, it won't actually change hearts to Christ-likeness. One… More

Mar 12 2012 Marriage Resources

Jessie Wilson

How refreshingly honest and to the point the 1 Corinthians series has been. The last few weeks have wrecked a lot of people, convicted many and reminded us all that we are called to a higher standard of living because we are to reflect the image of Christ. Because of these gut-punching messages… More

Brad Bell

Here are a few thoughts in prep for 1Cor 7:1-5. As we continue our journey through the filth of Corinth, we are reminded that as deviant as they were, we are more alike that we would care to admit. This week we take a look at sexuality and the expression in marriage. What is our duty, to whom are we… More

Mar 4 2012 How to Flee Sexual Immorality

Jerrod Rumley

I'm proud to be a part of a church that will deal with biblical texts head on. Today was one of those days as Brad took a familiar text and called our people up to godly lives that honor Him with their sexuality. There is no more shameful or sad cycle in the Bible than watching God's people fail… More

Feb 27 2012 "Am I Really a Christian?"

Jerrod Rumley

If we are really honest with ourselves as Christians, there comes a point when we ask ourself this question, "Am I Really a Christian?" Historically, when this question has come up in my own life, I have found I am usually wrestling with some profound experience or I am feeling the shame and guilt… More

Feb 27 2012 Is God Loving or Wrathful?

Dave Obwald

For me growing up the idea that God could both love all people (John 3:16) (1 John 4:16) and that He also shows wrath toward them (Hebrews 12:28-29) was a really hard concept for me to grasp. So I think functionally I saw Him as having a split personality. In my mind he was either a loving teddy… More
