Breaking Free From Generational Curses
Is it inevitable that we are cursed because of what someone in our family did in a previous generation? Is it possible to rise above familial or even national disfunction? In this uplifting message, Pastor Chris shows that we do not have to be bound by where we came from or by what someone else did in another time and place. Where we start does not determine where we end because of Jesus Christ and who we are in Him.

    Breaking Free From Fear
    Everyone encounters moments in their life when fear comes and tries to take over. Pastor Chris reminds us of the powerful verse in 2 Timothy 1:7 that we can memorize and use to combat this. He also enumerates, from the parable in Matthew 25:14 - 30, what fear does and how we can overcome it to be effective for God's Kingdom.

    Breaking Free From Bondage
    Life without liberty is truly not worth living. But there are times in which we find ourselves in bondage, whether it be spiritually, emotionally, or physically. Jesus Christ came to bring us salvation, which means deliverance and freedom. In this message, Pastor Chris looks at three people from the account in Luke 13:10 - 17 and points out each one's response toward a certain bondage. He reminds us that as Believers, our mission in this world is to empower people toward freedom as Jesus demonstrated.

    Fanatic Freedom
    In this Independence Day message, Pastor Anthony brings an encouraging word from John 8:31 - 36, reminding us of where we find our true freedom. As believers, we need to grab a hold of the freedom and authority we have through and in Jesus Christ and walk as His light in this world. Because He bought our complete freedom from the power of Satan, we are free to live as Christ's ambassador's in this earth!

    God Brought Us Out To Bring Us In
    In this message, Pastor Chris looks at the passage in Deuteronomy 6, focusing on verse 23, to look at God's purpose for redeeming us. We begin to grasp some things from the experience of the Israelites in the desert of how God takes us out of the negative and brings us into the positive, in order that we might possess His promises. We must remember though that, along the way, what happens in us is of far more importance that what happens to us.

    The Contents of Conquest (Jericho Must Fall)
    As we walk out our salvation, learning of and embracing the promises of God, we will encounter obstacles to those promises--walls that seem insurmountable. We see in Joshua 6 a battle plan for conquering those walls and seeing them fall. Pastor Chris highlights three points from this passage that will give us the tools to see the walls fall.

    Facing Failure
    The road to success is lined with failings. And whether those failings are good or bad lies in the eyes of the beholder. We need to use our failures to become a better person, rather than a bitter person. In this message, Pastor Chris shows five points from John 21:1 - 17 that encourage us to not allow our failures to keep us down or tell us we are no longer wanted by God.

    Simplicity
    Have we lost the real simplicity of our relationship with Jesus? It seems that when it comes to faith and our walk with God, we have overcomplicated it. Walking with the Lord and serving Him should be marked with joy and peace, not strife and turmoil. In this message, Pastor Chris highlights four simple and essential truths about serving Jesus from the passage found in Luke 10:38 - 42.

    What To Do When You Feel Like Giving Up
    We are all going to have seasons, moments, situations when we find ourselves bummed out, wanting to give up. What do we do in those moments? In this message, Pastor Chris shows us from Luke 9:51 - 62 Jesus' model of persistence that we can emulate. He also reminds us of the importance of perseverance as seen in one of the most important affirmations of faith--Philippians 3:14.

    Blessings in the Valley of Baca
    The Christian pilgrimage is not always smooth sailing and every believer will walk their own Valley of Baca (Valley of Bitterness). Pastor Chris discusses three valleys that we all walk through at moments in our life and shows, from Psalm 84:1 - 7, that if we lean on God and find our strength in Him, He will make springs and pools in those valleys.

    Facing Fear
    As Pastor Chris begins with Genesis 3:1 - 10, he points out that the first consequence of the fall was fear. Satan does not want us doing anything productive for God's kingdom and fear is one of his most potent weapons used to keep us immobile. We must learn to answer with faith when fear is knocking at our door and remember that as God has taken care of our past with His grace and mercy, He will also take care of our future.

    Weathering Worry
    Nowhere in Scripture do we read where God says that to show how much we care, we need to worry. In fact, as Pastor Chris shows from Matthew 6:25 - 34 and Philippians 4:4 - 7, the exact opposite is true. He points out that the antidote to worry is prayer. And it is our job to do everything in our power and leave the deficit for God to make up.

Readying for Revival – Part 3
In his continuation of discussing differing reactions during revival, Pastor Chris reminds us that we should not minimize one's reaction to the glory of God. But, we also cannot make those manifestations the litmus test for determining whether or not God has moved. In this message, Pastor Chris discusses the manifestation of the travail, as referenced in Romans 8:26 - 27.

    Readying for Revival – Part 2
    In his continuation of "Readying for Revival", Pastor Chris highlights documented accounts of people's response to God's glory. He also looks as Daniel's encounter in Daniel 10:1 - 8 and reminds us that when we, as natural people, encounter the supernatural God, there is only so much we can take before there is an outward response to His glory. Ultimately, our goal is not the manifestations, but rather, an encounter with God (Daniel 10:6).

    Readying for Revival – Part 1
    Do you know that you can prepare and plan for a revival? In this message, Pastor Chris expounds on the idea that "revival is not a fluke", taken from Charles Finney's book "Lectures on Revivals of Religion". It always comes in direct response to the prayers of the saints. Pastor Chris also begins to walk through some manifestations that might occur when God begins to move.
