Cast Your Net: A Culture of Evangelism, Pt. 2 - Acts 2:46-47 (September 10, 2017)

9/12/2017
More
There is no list or program that can create a culture of evangelism in a church. As a matter of fact, the exact characteristics of a church with a culture of evangelism are difficult to pin down. However, you know it when you see it. The First Church had it in Acts 2. As a church, we need certain yearnings and desires to have an evangelistic culture, a heart-cry of our people. Those yearnings make up this week's and last week's message. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

More
This message begins our 'Cast Your Net' series on evangelism. In it, we answer the question "What is evangelism?" The answer to that question effects the very nature of our evangelistic encounters, so it's a great place to start this 6-week series. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Dear Galatians - 2:6-10 (August 20, 2017 PM)

8/26/2017
More
This is a verse by verse study through the book of Galatians. The major theme is not to allow false teaching to divert us from the true gospel. There are many false teachers out there, wrapped in television, wealth, fake smiles, and even plain packaging, but their deviant theology and teaching are to be ignored. The falsehoods can only truly be recognized when we are steeped in the truth of God's word.

LAUNCHout - Luke 5:4 (August 20, 2017)

8/26/2017
More
We love with truth. We love with compassion. Now, we need to be among the world and LAUCHout so we can cast our nets. What will launching out look like? A million different things. But it won't be comfortable, and it likely won't be familiar, and it won't always make sense, but it should always follow the commands of Jesus. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

LAUNCH: Loving With Compassion - Acts 2:42-47 (August 13, 2017)

8/14/2017
More
Loving with truth is only past of how we are to love: we are also to love with compassion. This begins for the church, not in our relationships with those outside the church, but with those within it. The first church made an example of themselves, and then were held up as an example. This is vital for the church today for everything from our approach to outreach to our response to racism. As we LAUNCHOut our nets to bring in our catch, we must love with compassion. Michael Linton, Pastor...

LAUNCH: Loving With Truth - Acts 2:37-41

8/7/2017
More
This message serves as a bridge from our "First Church" series, to a short series on our #LAUNCHOut strategy. In this first message of the three message series, we look at the 'L' of the acronym LAUNCH, 'Loving.' In order to be loving, we must first be truthful, and the ultimate truth is that we are sinners and Jesus is the only hope for our salvation. It is not loving to not share the truth. Peter shared to real, necessary, loving truth. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Peter's sermon at Pentecost contains volumes of learning for the Christian. In this message, we take a 35,000 foot view of his sermon and find 8 aspects of it that inform our call to witness and how we go about talking to someone about Jesus. As Christians, we've been prepared, filled, and now we're Ready for Action. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Race, Baptists, and the Bible - Ephesians 2:14 (July 9, 2017)

7/10/2017
More
Racism is a sad and sinful reality. In the Southern Baptist Convention, racism is also a sad history. However, steps have been taken through the years to both atone for past racism and remove current racism from our midst. There's still work to do, and there is a Biblical mandate to do so. Racism is against the Bible, against Christlikeness, and against the Christian's sanctification. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

As the disciples of Jesus waited, as the were told to, for the Holy Spirit, they were not idle. They came together in unity, they prayed, they searched the scriptures, and they prepared for whatever might be coming next. The command to wait on God is rarely a command to do nothing.
