2018's Sermon Archive
Jesus commanded us to make disciples. How do we make sure that discipleship is the main focus of the church? It starts by understanding what a disciple is. In this sermon we’ll lay a foundation for understanding what discipleship is and why it is important.
How do we as parents pass on our faith to our children? How do we set the tone for faith and morality at home? Find out in this sermon about parenting.
This week we are looking at what steps we should take to make sex healthy in a marriage from a Biblical perspective. We really want married Husbands and Wives to have healthy, enjoyable, fulfilling, and sustaining relationships and we know that sex is a part of that.

Who are you supposed to be? What do you believe about yourself? Do you see yourself in a good light or do are you your own worst critic?

Before we talk about the Christian Family, we’re going to look at what happens in the Christian Home. We are going to unpack how to have a home where Christ is welcomed and where He has access in our lives. We believe that in order to have a family that loves Jesus that we must first set the right tone in our homes.
How should a Christian treat their enemies? It’s easy to love and even like those we get along with, but what about those we struggle to understand or those who have even hurt us? I am convinced that you can tell a lot about a person by how they treat their enemies. We’re going to look at what the Bible says.
In this Palm Sunday sermon we are going to take a look at how a village, a tree, and a donkey foreshadow the finished work of Jesus Christ.

Jesus had an eternal mission. So He saw beyond stereotypes, cultural mores, and the politics of the day. He saw people with a level of compassion that could only be guided by a concern for their eternity and the problem of their sin. He treated people as a doctor with a cure rather than a critic with a correction.
The church has been commissioned to continue the ministry of Jesus Christ, but what does that look like and where do we begin? Well the good news is that Jesus left us a roadmap in the scripture to understand just what it is that we are supposed to be doing and how. So we’re looking into scripture for some inspiration.
Where is your identity? As disciples of Christ we need to understand some key things about what the Bible says about who we are and the assurances that God offers us because the devil and the world have plenty of opposing and negative messages for us.
Up until this point in our series we’ve looked very seriously at Jesus’ invitation to forsake the world and follow Him. We may have the desire to do so but we really can’t change until we change the way we think. So this week we look at what Paul referred to as the renewing of the mind.
Over the past few weeks we’ve talked about our need to forsake the world as we follow Christ. We’ve listened to Jesus’ words as He’s asked us to cut ties with worldliness and today we take a deep look into what behaviors He has asked us to cut ties with.
This week we explore how we handle our connections with friends, family and the world as we separate ourselves from the secular and follow Jesus. We’ll take a mature look at this difficult question and iron out what this should and shouldn’t look like.
Can you follow Christ if you do not forsake the world first? It’s a tough question but one that Jesus left us to wrestle with. Take a look with us at Jesus’ own words concerning forsaking the world and being a disciple.
