The Life of Blessing
Believers can live a life of blessing while also living a life of holiness. In this message, Pastor Chris teaches from 3 John and encourages us that God desires to bless us in all realms--body, soul and spirit. But we must remember that we are blessed so that in turn we can bless others.

    A Plan for Rescuing America
    Currently, our nation is facing tremendous turmoil and many are seeking answers. For America to get where she needs to get, the solution is not a quick-fix, but a determination to invest the time to see the desired outcome and return to foundational principles, namely, men rising up in Jesus' power and leading their families. From Micah 6:6 - 8, Pastor Chris lays out five qualities that men need to cultivate to bring our nation back to health.

    Lost People Matter
    The Gospel has always been and will forever be a "whosoever" message. We must not allow the animosity and hatred to penetrate our hearts and cause us to forget that every person needs Jesus. No matter what we consider our occupation in life, the bottom line is that we are called to be soul winners. In this message, Pastor Chris takes us through the book of Jonah and encourages us to remain focused on the souls of the lost, just as God was focused on the lost Ninevites and not Jonah's feelings about them.

    Experiencing an Encounter With the Eternal
    God is serious about making a difference in people's lives and we must be also. To facilitate that, we need to personally have a fresh encounter with the God of heaven. Without such an encounter, we are limited to our own insufficient resources to help people. Using Exodus 3 as the backdrop, Pastor Chris shows us three things about how we can experience an encounter with the Eternal.

    The Chronicles of the Last Days – Build Yourself Up
    Near the return of Jesus Christ, there will be a falling away from the faith. How can we remain strong and not be part of the apostasy? In this final message of the series, Pastor Chris looks to Jude 1:20 - 25 for that answer. We have to have something inside of us that is greater than what is happening on the outside.

    The Chronicles of the Last Days – Contend for the Faith
    If we call Jesus our Lord, we are in His army, fighting the good fight of faith which is taking the message of Christ to the world. God has put that message in our hands and it is every saint's responsibility to assume the preservation and proclamation of that message. Reading from Jude 1:3 - 19, Pastor Chris lays out three points that we need to adhere to as we stand strong in contending for the faith.

    The Chronicles of the Last Days – Called, Loved and Kept
    In this first part of a three part series, Pastor Chris discusses the four basic questions we all need to answer: Who am I? Where did I come from? Why am I here? and Where am I going? Referencing Jude 1:1-2, 24-25, he shows us three components to see ourselves the way God see us. Because there is no way to be healthy in life without having a proper view of ourselves, we need to understand the importance of seeing ourselves as God sees us--called, loved and kept.

    Making a House a Home
    Series: (All)
    God established three primary institutions in this life: government, Church and family, with the latter being the fundamental building block of the first two. In spite of what current culture would like to say, the family does still indeed matter. Referencing Ruth 1:1 - 19, Pastor Chris gives us three principles for making a house a home.

    Revival: American Style
    Revival is not a man-made thing. There is a divine framework and pattern revealed in the Word of God to which every true move of God has followed. This paradigm can be found in Psalm 85. In this message, Pastor Chris takes us on a journey through revival history and challenges us with Charles Finney's seven principles to expect a "revival of religion".

    Whoever Said Do Away With the Cross?
    Modernity looks down it's nose at ancient people whose idols were made of stone, wood and precious metals. But we have an idolatry today that is far more wicked than even that which is recorded in the Old Testament. It is preaching a salvation without the cross of Christ. As Pastor Chris preaches from 1 Corinthians 1:18 - 2:5, he admonishes us to take seriously the call to "take up our cross and follow Jesus." There must be a confrontation of our sin and true repentance.

    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.

    How can we heed the exhortation found in James 1:2 - 8 to "count it all joy" as we find ourselves in the midst of life's stresses? Pastor Chris takes us through this passage and gives us three tips on how to successfully walk through life's stressful seasons.

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.
