Dead-End Pursuits Introduction | Ecclesiastes 1:8-13 | Week 3

10/6/2019
More
This week, in a continuing effort to disillusion us from that thought that we might find anything in this life, apart from God, that may satisfy us and give us meaning, Solomon introduces his own personal investigations. Solomon describes his deep and thorough investigation of life and what it has to offer, and then will walk us through seven “dead-end streets” over the course of the next few weeks.

Pointless Patterns in Life | Ecclesiastes 1:1-7 | Week 2

9/29/2019
More
As we begin chapter 1 of Ecclesiastes this morning, Solomon begins to strategically disillusion each one of us from the things of this world. In today’s section, we will see the apparent transitory nature of our lives in comparison to the created world around us. Do our lives have lasting meaning and purpose OR are they just meaningless? In comparison to the steady and predictable patterns of nature, it is hard to tell from a simply human perspective. The answer of course is that our lives...

Why Ecclesiastes? An Introduction | Ecclesiastes 1:2-3, 12:13 | Week 1

9/22/2019
More
This morning we introduce the Book of Ecclesiastes. One commentator wrote that “there may be less agreement about the interpretation of Ecclesiastes than there is about any other biblical book, even the Revelation of John!” Written by a man who had everything, Ecclesiastes provides a raw and unfiltered view of life on earth. It recognizes the apparent futility in everything on earth, and yet the author finds a silver lining for our lives here. That silver lining is found in relationship with...

How to Be A Wife - Part 2 | 1 Peter 3:1 6 | Till Death Do Us Part | Week 9

9/8/2019
More
This morning, as we continue to look at the wives’ role in marriage, we will consider another key word in Peter’s writings - ADORN. The word “adorn” means “to order” or “to arrange.” It speaks of what wives focus on and how they arrange or order their lives. As with submission, the focus for wives is always on their internal spiritual lives and response to the Lord, rather than their reaction to their own husbands. Join us for the final message in this Biblical Marriage series. Preached:...

How to Be a Wife - Part 1 | Ephesians 5:22-24 | Till Death Do Us Part | Week 8

9/1/2019
More
This morning we look at one of the six letter curse words in the Bible – SUBMIT. At least, this is the way much of our culture, both Christian and non-Christian, view this word. It is unfortunate, because in context, this word describes a Spirit-filled woman. So, what does submission mean, and why is it so important to the success of a marriage relationship? Join us, as we consider this very important question the next two weeks. Preached: 9/1/2019 Watch Listen

How to Be A Husband - Part 2 | Eph 5:25-30, Col 3:19, 1 Pet 3:7 | Till Death Do Us Part | Week 7

8/25/2019
More
This morning, as we continue to consider the role of the husband in marriage, it is vitally important for husbands to STOP trying (in their own strength) to be a good husband and START trusting (in the Lord) to be a biblical husband. Many well-meaning husbands try very hard to be a good husband, and yet this is NOT the biblical prescription. What is the biblical prescription? Let’s continue to consider the Scriptures… Preached: 8/25/2019 Watch Listen

When we consider the roles of husbands and wives, many times we ignore the very tools that God provides for our success. This morning, as we consider the role of the husband in marriage, it is vitally important for husbands to STOP trying (in their own strength) and START trusting (in the Lord).

Spouse Hunting - Part 2 | Proverbs 12:15, 16:18-19, 19:1, 25:19 | Till Death Do Us Part | Week 5

8/11/2019

The decision to get married is one of the most important decisions that a person will make in his or her lifetime. Next to the decision to put your faith in Jesus Christ and His finished work for salvation is the decision of WHO you will marry. So, how do you look for a spouse and what are you looking for? This morning, we continue the conversation we began last week in hopes to be better prepared to make this HUGE life decision. Preached: 8/11/2019 Watch Listen

Your Spouse Is Not Your Enemy; Common Areas of Disagreement | Till Death Do Us Part | Week 3

7/28/2019
More
James 1:19-20, Ephesians 4:15 & 29 “Your spouse is NOT your enemy!” Husbands and wives need to be reminded of this constantly, because our marriages’ true enemy is an enemy within the camp. Each spouse possesses a sin nature that is looking for footholds to destroy, and disrupt even the most sincere and genuine couples. This morning we will look at three of the most common areas where our sin nature dig it’s heels in, and what the solution is for it. Watch: Listen:

What Went Wrong? | Genesis 3:1-19 | Til Death Do Us Part | Week 2

7/21/2019
More
“THE plan only survives its first contact with reality” is a phrase uttered in military circles. The quote applies to marriage as well! God’s original design for marriage was and IS perfect without any fault. However, we will look at something today that made the execution of God’s plan for marriage extremely difficult. It was all good at the beginning, so, what went wrong? We’ll consider that question this morning. Preached: 7/21/2019 Watch Listen

Marriage | Genesis 2:18-25 | Til Death Do Us Part | Week 1

7/14/2019
More
The state of marriage in our modern day society is in complete and utter shambles. Although the statistics regarding divorce ACTUALLY appear to be improving (ONLY 40% of marriages resulting in divorce, which is down from 50% in the 1980’s), the quality of marriage is decidedly lower than ever before. Out of the 60% of marriages that survive, many are on life support and are barely making it day by day. God instituted marriage with an original design and the end goal was and is today still...

Final Greetings and Doxology | Romans 16:21-27 | Week 93

7/7/2019
More
This morning, we close out the Book of Romans with a final greeting from Paul’s current companions in Corinth. And then Paul gives a mouth full in his combination “doxology mixed with prayer for the saints.” Paul prays for the saints in Rome to be established for the obedience that springs from faith. In order to exercise faith, one must have an object upon which to rest and thus Paul gives four things that believers must be established “according to.” If believers can learn to be...

When to Separate | Romans 16:17-20 | Week 92

6/30/2019
More
“In the name of Christian love and grace, churches have tolerated dangerous and disruptive elements to the detriment of the health of the Church.” There is a time to separate from others for the sake of the health of the body. This morning, we will consider one such time when it is appropriate. Although it is difficult to administer what we would call “tough love,” we must do it if we are truly concerned about the health of the local church we find ourselves involved in. Satan uses any...

Meeting the Family - Part 2 | Romans 16:5b-16 | Week 91

6/23/2019
More
In our day and age, many people are interested in their ancestry as shown by their willingness to pay money to find out who they are related to and where they come from. As we continue on from last week, in this final chapter of Romans, we are given a “spiritual” ancestry of sorts, as Paul mentions roughly 35 names in this chapter. But, before we just dismiss this section as a “list,” let’s take the time to meet OUR “spiritual” family members. This was not just a “list” to the Apostle Paul –...

Paul's Itinerary - Part 2 | Romans 15:28-33 | Week 89

6/2/2019
More
This morning we continue to look at Paul’s future itinerary as described to the Roman believers. As the saying goes though, “The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry.” Although we gain insight into Paul’s heart with his planned itinerary, we are also reminded in Proverbs 16:9 that “A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” It is interesting to note how God DID and DID NOT answer in the affirmative Paul’s specific prayers requests.

Paul's Unique Ministry - Part 2 | Romans 15:18-21 | Week 87

5/23/2019
More
In the section we continue today, Paul continues with a “personal” tone as he further describes his own unique ministry. This ministry and message (i.e., the gospel) were given to him via direct revelation from the Lord Jesus Christ, and God validated and verified his ministry in both word and deed to the Gentiles he was called to. Paul also revealed his “strategy” for ministry…laying his own foundation (i.e., Jesus Christ) and building thereon. Preached: 5/19/2019 Watch Listen:
