When Seeing Isn’t Believing

(message begins 30:15)  Luke 16:25, John 8:31-32 Many people find it hard to believe. In anything. Some find it hard to believe because of the illusion of intellectual certainty. What is truth is a huge challenge in today’s world. It has gotten to be where we have a psychological hunger to know, to be sure. …

Eyes Opened! Hearing, then Listening

(sermon begins 26:00)  Luke 24:13-34 The two travelers on the road to Emmaus, were reeling from the loss of their friend, their rabbi, their leader Jesus.

(message begins 28:35) Revelation 1-3. Our Lord Jesus lived among us living a 4 – Dimensional life: Seeking God the Father every day. Reflecting God the Fathers image.

(message begins at 29:30) James 1:22-25, James 2    The world is overwhelmed with instant information, instant knowledge. Anxiety and hopelessness abounds.

Are You Following?

Often when some of us first start hearing the Gospel, or they start reading God’s Word, we say, “I don’t like it, it is too hard to accept. I just don’t understand.”  We want to be better to keep our resolutions for the New Year. We want a better self, we see ourselves as good…

Onward: Jesus is About Onward

A Christmas Eve worship with carols, stories, scripture, testimonies, and a video depiction of that night–a night that changed the world forever.  God took off His royal robes and came to be one of us. The reason He came to find entrance into every single human heart. He had to fix the problem of the…

Outward: The Pursuit of Joy

As Americans we are very blessed–“All men are created equal…endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”  To preserve this truth we are bound to protect it even though how others…
