Doug Schorle 01-15-2023 // We Believe...The Trinity

In today's message, we continue through the Atlantic Gospel Chapel Statement of Faith. "We Believe – there is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14." Today we examine the doctrine of the Trinity and consider the implications for the believer today. Thank you for listening to today's message. May you be blessed through the teaching of God's Holy Word. We invite you to...


Alex Kremer 01-08-2023 // The Bible - A Further Look at the Canon

We continue our look into the first article of the Atlantic Gospel Chapel Statement of Faith. Here we take a further look into the Bible itself to gain a deeper understanding into how we received the Bible in its current form. How was it determined which books were the Word of God and which were not. We invite you to read our Statement of Faith in its entirety at Thank you for listening to this lesson. May you be blessed through the...


Alex Kremer 01-08-2023 // We Believe - The Bible

In today's lesson, we begin a series on the Atlantic Gospel Chapel Statement of Faith. Each week, a member of the leadership team will expound upon each of the articles in our Statement of Faith. Today, we examine the first article, We Believe – the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God; without error in the original writings; the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men; and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. 2...


Atlantic Gospel Chapel Leadership 12/25/2022 // The Incarnation

A recent video posted online asked the question, "Why do we celebrate Christmas?" Then answers seem to reflect the modern, American culture as regards the Christmas season. We celebrate because there are presents. We celebrate time with family and friends. But only one of the responses shown indicated a Biblical understanding of Christmas as the time we remember and celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. But what does this truly mean? As believers, do we really dig into...


Alex Kremer 12-18-2022 // The God Who Is; Acts 17:16-34

As we continue in Acts 17, we find Paul in Athens addressing the men of the Areopagus to answer questions aroused by his preaching in the market place. And just as we are today, we find that the people of Athens in Paul's day were very religious by nature. But in our sin we worship things that are not God, who is the only One deserving of our worship. As Paul presents his case before the council, he presents God as the creator of all things. He presents God as the self-existent One who does...


Doug Schorle 12-11-2022 // Creation, A Christmas Story; Genesis 1

As we enter into the Christmas season, our thoughts often go to all things Christmas. The trees and decorations, the lights and presents. Sunday School programs rehearse the Christmas story, and we return to passages such as Matthew 1, or Luke 2. But what we don't often associate with Christmas is the story of creation. When John opened his Gospel in John 1, he wrote, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All...


Alex Kremer 12-04-2022 // What Would This Idle Babbler Wish to Say? Acts 17:16-34

In our modern world, the idea that life should be ordered on Scriptural principles is often seen as a silly notion. Belief in God is seen as quaint; but to believe that God's Word should play a part in public life is seen as dangerous. And to insist on belief in the Bible is to de-legitimize other religious beliefs and is therefore a bigoted view. The COEXIST bumper stickers, on which each letter is formed from a symbol representing a different major religion, is the mantra of the day. When...


Grant Nelson 11-27-2022 // Corinth Gospel Chapel; 1 Corinthians 1:10-17

As a city in the ancient world, Corinth could be compared to Las Vegas of today. A port city, and an important city within the Roman Empire, this city was a mecca of idolatry and moral corruption. To find a church in this city was, in many ways, a miracle in itself. Sadly, the church in Corinth was a church with many problems, not the least of which were the divisions which existed. What lessons can we gain from this church and Paul's handling of the issues which plagued this local body of...


Alex Kremer 11-20-2022 // Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is something that should mark our whole life. How often do we thank God for our existence or His many blessings in our lives? Or how often do we thank God for our jobs or our fellow believers? The list of things for which we should be thankful becomes a rather lengthy one. In today's lesson, we conduct a survey of what Scripture has to say on the topic of giving thanks. Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May you be blessed as we consider who God is and what He has...


Ned Brown 11-13-2022 // Just Lot; 2 Peter 2:4-9

In his play, "The Crucible," Arthur Miller made this comment, "Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets." It is easy for us to cast stones at many of the characters of Scripture. And perhaps one of the characters attracting the most condemnation of believers is Lot, the nephew of Abraham. Most of what we know about Lot comes from the account in Genesis, beginning in chapter 12, where we find Lot joining his uncle as Abram leaves his land following the Lord's call. And...


Alex Kremer 11-06-2022 // Six Things the Resurrection of Jesus Proves

Most of us have likely heard messages such as, "Five Things That Prove the Resurrection of Jesus." In tonight's lesson, however, we turn this on its head. Rather than looking at the evidence for the resurrection, we consider, "Six Things the Resurrection of Jesus Proves." While there are more than these items, we focus on the following things which the resurrection prove: Thank you for listening. May you be encouraged by the Word of God and the truth and power of the resurrection of Jesus...


Alex Kremer - 11-06-2022 // Preach the Word; Acts 17:1-15

There are those today who act as if Christians should not quote Scripture. One reason is the fear that people will find us silly. Another reason being that Scripture no longer has the power to convict. But what does the Word of God say? In today's lesson we continue with Paul and Silas and Timothy into Thessalonica. Having been driven from Philippi, Acts records how they next came to this city, where Paul spent three Sabbaths in the synagogue, reasoning with them from the Scriptures that...


Alex Kremer 10-30-2022 // Sirs, What Must I Do to Be Saved?; Acts 16:16-40

Life is full of questions. Most of the questions are trivial in nature; what cereal should I have for breakfast? Other questions, while they may have more depth, we treat them as trivial; such as, "Who are you doing?" to which most of us answer, "Fine," even if we are not. Some questions are life changing, "Will you marry me?" to which the answer may change the trajectory of our lives. And still others are life or death questions, "What is your blood type?" which if answered incorrectly may...


Stefan Johnson 10-23-2022 // Lamentations 1, The God Who Judges

Lamentations is one of the least preached books. And to be honest, it is a depressing book. Lamentations deals with the Lord's treatment of Judah, specifically, Jerusalem, for her continued rebellion to Himself and His laws. And following an 18 month siege of the city by Babylon, Jerusalem is devastated beyond belief. But the lessons of Lamentations are just as relevant for us today as they were during the time the events of this book took place. First, we must come to grips that our sin...


Alex Kremer 10-16-2022 // Woe is Me! Isaiah 6:1-8

"In the year of King Uzziah's death..." King Uzziah strengthened the nation both politically and religiously, seeking after the Lord God. King Uzziah reigned for 52 years in Jerusalem, so when he died, this time of relative peace and stability came to a crashing stop. What would become of the nation? Uncertainty gripped the nation as well as God's prophet, Isaiah. In the midst of this uncertain time, Isaiah goes to the temple in Jerusalem, where he is given a vision of the Lord on His...


Alex Kremer 10-16-2022 // A Kindred Spirit, A Closed Door, and a Softened Heart

During the Jerusalem Council recorded in Acts 15, the early church affirmed that salvation did not depend upon adherence to the Mosaic Law, but solely upon accepting, by faith, the grace shown to all through the atoning work of Christ on the cross. Anything else only served to add burden to believers. Following this Council, Paul set out to revisit the churches established during his first missionary journey in order to encourage and strengthen these churches. He also planned to enter into...


Doug Schorle 10/09/2022 // How Now Shall We Live; 1 Thessalonians 5:12-28

As Paul closes out his first letter to the church in Thessalonica, he does so by encouraging to live lives in light of the Gospel and in the hope of the soon return of the Lord Jesus. This hope is the certain expectation based upon the faithfulness of who God is and what He has done for us in His Son, Jesus Christ. Join us for today's lesson as we explore living life in light of the Gospel, drawing four lessons from today's passage. Thank you for listening to today's message. May the Word...


Alex Kremer 09-18-2022 // Romans 8:28-30 - The Golden Chain of Redemption Part 2

Today's lesson is the second and last lesson on Romans 8:28-30, sometimes referred to as the Golden Chain of Redemption with each of its five links holding us to Jesus Christ. In the first part of this series, we considered the first two links of this Golden Chain: That is, that those whom He foreknew he has predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son. In part two, we consider the remaining three links: This "Golden Chain of Redemption" encourages us with the truth that our...


Alex Kremer 09-11-2022 // The Golden Chain of Redemption Part 1; Romans 8:28-30

When we look at the Bible as a whole, we can think of it as a great symphony of a rescue story, of how God saved a people to Himself. All of the Bible is about who God is, what He has done and what He is going to do. This rescue story is a story of which we are a part. But we must also remember that we are not the center of this story; rather we are the ones requiring rescue. Today's passage has been referred to as the Golden Chain of Redemption, with each of its links holding us to Christ....


Alex Kremer 09-04-2022 // It is Written; Matthew 4:1-11

Immediately following His baptism by John, the Gospels record that the Spirit led, or better drove, Jesus into the wilderness for forty days. We know little of that time other than he fasted those many days alone; a time which echoes the forty years Israel spent in the wilderness following their exodus from Egypt. In a sense, Jesus fulfilled in the wilderness what Israel could not. It was at the end of these forty days that the Devil came to Jesus in order to tempt Jesus. At each of these...
