8/6/2019
More
Our extraordinary God is extraordinary in His power. He still works in power today through His people if they will depend on Him to guide and use them. Our extraordinary God is extraordinary in His reputation. His name is great among the nations, but we as His followers must proclaim His name through righteous living. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

8/6/2019

Jesus did it. Paul did it. It's our command as well. We must share the good news of the kingdom of God. In that kingdom is salvation through faith alone, and a life of sanctification through obedience. We must preach the kingdom. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

The Church to the World: Spirit Empowerment - Acts 19:1-7 (July 21, 2019)

8/5/2019
More
The extravagant misuse of Holy Spirit power in the modern charismatic movement is no excuse for us to discount the very real need for a daily filling of His power. We receive the Holy Spirit only once: upon salvation. But being filled and empowered by Him is a daily necessity that requires us to participate. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:46:11

The Church to the World: Discipleship-It Wasn't Just Paul - Acts 18:24-28 (July 14, 2019)

7/15/2019
More
The mission of the church isn't up to a select few, it's the responsibility of every believer. Disciples are to make disciples as a result of their own discipleship. Believers are supposed to Go/Grow. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:46:34

The Church to the World: It's the Little Things - Acts 18:18-23 (July 7, 2019)

7/14/2019
More
Sometimes God speaks to us in small ways that might go unnoticed. However, if we're intentional about hearing from Him when we read His word, we'll find that those small ways He speaks aren't little things at all. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:46:48

The Church to the World: Confirmation Through Persecution - Acts 18:1-17 (June 30, 2019)

7/14/2019

Often, the confirmation of our obedience in fulfilling the calling on our lives is the persecution that would seem to derail us from fulfilling the calling. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:50:00

7/2/2019
More
The gut-punch trials of life can often seem to be more than we can bear. Sometimes, they ARE more than we can bear. But God promises the very thing we need the most: Himself. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:44:23

Songs for Life: Our Magnificent God - Psalm 8 (May 12, 2019)

5/14/2019

The heavens declare His magnificence. David saw it, and knew our place in creation. However, our place in that creation actually tells us more about God than it does us. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:45:11

Compassion Sunday: Do What Is Good - Isaiah 1:16-20 (May 5, 2019)

5/9/2019
More
Our regular routine of worship is not acceptable to God, no matter how pure or biblical it appears, if our hearts aren't repentant and our lives don't reflect that repentance. Isaiah is clear on how our lives can show repentance: justice in the social realm. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:46:55

Songs for Life: The Lord Judges - Psalm 7 (April 28, 2019)

5/3/2019
More
False accusations, attacks, bad circumstances, and unwarranted negativity are just a part of life. God is not unaware of our situations, and He judges. That is our hope, even when we can't see the end. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:46:22

Duration:00:46:14

3 Circles: Brokenness - Genesis 3:1-19 (April 14, 2019)

4/15/2019
More
Brokenness in this world isn't anything anyone needs a lesson on. However, how to fix that brokenness is something we'd all like to know. Hint: we can't do it with our own plans and ways. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:49:17

4/10/2019
More
In this first of a three week series, we introduce a new evangelism tool that we will be training on in the next few months. We begin with God's Design, that shows how God intended the world to be, but how sin messed it up. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:47:52

The Church to the World: The Gospel for the Marketplace - Acts 17:16-34 (March 24, 2019)

3/30/2019
More
In Paul's sermon at the Areopagus, we hear a great example of how to address the gospel to a group of people that have no background of biblical faith. We see how to take the gospel to the marketplace. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:45:56

The Church to the World: Responding to the Gospel - Acts 17:1-15 (March 17, 2019)

3/18/2019
More
There are two choices when it comes to the Gospel; two roads, so to speak: yes or no. In this message, we see clear distinctions between those two responses. Which road will you choose? Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:39:44

The Church to the World: The Fruit of Obedience - Acts 16:11-40 (March 10, 2019)

3/12/2019
More
When we are obedient to God, the results don't always look like success, at least in the way the world measures it. It can look underwhelming, or even look like failure. But, in Christ, obedience is the success. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:43:37

The Church to the World: When God Yells - Acts 16:1-10 (March 3, 2019)

3/11/2019
More
Sometimes, we think we're doing what we're supposed to be doing. Sometimes, we're going on what God said some time back, but we haven't checked to see what's next. Sometimes, we're wrong. Sometimes, God has to yell in His quiet, direct, unmistakable way. Sometimes, it happened to Paul, too. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:46:01

The Church to the World: God Is Not Surprised - Acts 15:36-41 (February 24, 2019)

2/27/2019
More
Our sinfulness, our failures, even tragedies don't surprise God. He can, and does, use them all to accomplish His will and purposes. And there are none of us that are beyond failure and disobedience. Even Paul missed it at times. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:42:49

The Church to the World: Grace Alone - Acts 15:1-35 (February 17, 2019)

2/18/2019
More
The discussion that occurred in Jerusalem over what was required for Gentiles to be saved had ramifications for the next 2000 years of missions and beyond. It also showed the church submitting to what Jesus had already said about his offer of salvation: it was by Grace Alone. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA
