Sermon

Jesus, Lamb of God

 

David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

April 17, 2019

David Wilkerson delivers an Easter message on the power of Jesus' blood. The Son's mighty atoning sacrifice not only wipes away all of our sins and makes us clean but also gives us an eternal hope because now we are justified and will be able to stand before God's throne. Christ gives us peace and joy as we look forward to heaven, and that great gift should be one that we desperately desire for others to know too.

God's Divine Order in the Chaos of Life

 

Gary Wilkerson

April 10, 2019

Gary Wilkerson examines Job's cry to God and God's response. God points out the overwhelming behemoth and leviathan that Job could've never overcome on his own and then points Job to his own authority and power in the world.

If we attempt to take on demonic powers without God's authority, it's a struggle we'll never forget. However, we are called to be Davids with Goliaths. We are called to do battle against evil and chaos as the children of God. That can be deeply frightening, but the Bible says over and over, "Don't be afraid."

Where there is chaos, you are called to bring order as a child of God. Gary talks about how we walk this out without becoming overwhelmed.

Getting Healed

 

Gary Wilkerson

April 3, 2019

Many of us have been wounded. The Bible has promised us freedom, but often it feels like we’re still held back by scars. Pastor Gary Wilkerson talks about how God uses truth to set us free from the damage in our past, but how God also allows the snake to be in our garden. The automatic question is “Why? Why would God allow there to be a snake in our lives that tempts or wounds us?” There are four major “snakes” in our lives:
1.    Fear or anxiety
2.    Rejection
3.    Isolation
4.    Shame or self-loathing 
The Bible’s most common command is “Fear not” even in the face of great challenges. God wants to show us the strength his Holy Spirit has within us to make us more than conquerors.

America And Its Children Need Deliverance

 

Carter Conlon

March 27, 2019

God’s people are meant to be a light and blessing to the world. Even the darkest, most entrenched parts of society can be overcome by faith as small as mustard seed. All God needed to overturn pervasive culture in the book of Acts was 120 common, ordinary people who were willing to let their hearts be overcome by the Holy Spirit. In this passionate exhortation, Pastor Carter reminds Christians that we are called to live for the benefit of others.

Don't Be Disappointed With Yourself

 

Gary Wilkerson

February 6, 2019

How many of us feel disappointed in ourselves or like a disappointment to our friends, family or even God? Often, we say terrible things about ourselves that we would never say to another person. 


Feeling as if we should have accomplished more, traveled to more places or made different choices in our past can become a terrible weight on the soul. Even if we do achieve our greatest dreams, they almost always feel hollow once they’re in our hands. We fall prey to the enemy’s lies rather than trusting what God says.


Here Gary Wilkerson talks about how we can grasp God’s promise of peace and abundant life.

Jesus, Wash My Feet

 

Carter Conlon

October 25, 2018

As Christians, we are constantly in combat with a world that is out of touch with God and uses religion to offer wealth, status and power. Through the act of washing the disciples feet, Jesus showed a way of thinking that would change our lives forever. This way of servanthood led Jesus to the cross and is considered greatness with God. If we are willing to yield our lives and become servants like Jesus we can have true power and impact the world around us for eternity.

Wordless Words

 

Tim Dilena

October 16, 2018

Words matter. Scripture says “death and life are in the power of the tongue” (Prov. 18:21). But how we say words is just as important as what we say. Our facial expressions, tones, and even our silence speak volumes! How do we control these reactions? We have to look at our heart, as from it come our reactions to situations in our homes, work, and relationships. If we invite God to search our hearts and help us control the words of our mouths and meditations of our hearts, he will help us. We can be God-strengthened to be surrounded by chaos but not let it control our hearts and words.

Is This Your First or Last Year?

 

Carter Conlon

October 4, 2018

Many in churches across America are setting their hearts on false hopes—seeking to bypass holy to get to happy. If we are willing to see life as God sees it, real change can happen in our lives. God takes those struggling vessels with honest hearts on a journey they will never regret. We will make mistakes along the way, but a cry of “Abba, Father” will rise from our heart as we look to God’s promises with hope for change.

I Just Made A Really Bad Decision....Now What?

 

Tim Dilena

September 28, 2018

Leaving God out of our decision making is dangerous and leads to difficulties that could’ve been avoided. In the Old Testament, Joshua made a decision just like this that led to Israel being at war with enemies it wouldn’t have had to face. But Joshua didn’t make the same mistake in the midst of these consequences. He cried out to God for a miracle in the battle and the Lord made the sun stand still! No matter if it is a difficult decision or the consequences of a bad decision, the God who is big enough to make the sun stand still thousands of years ago is still working all things together for good for those who love him.

I Can't Go On One More Day

 

Tim Dilena

September 6, 2018

Are you at your wits end? Do you find it hard to go on one more day? God knows what we need better than we know what we need. When we’re in charge of our own prayer requests we may be scripting our demise. Things go really bad when God lets us be god to our self. God answers like a father, not a Genie. Most of our prayer requests are telling god how we want Him to answer us, since God is our Father He does what’s right and best for us.
