The Caleb Connection
Winston Churchill is noted as saying that "success is going from one failure unto another without losing your enthusiasm." In this message, Pastor Chris encourages us from Joshua 14:6 - 15 to be people of faith and perseverance just as Caleb was. We need to look at our situations and speak to them in faith as he did.

    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.

    The People We Ought To Be
    How should we be as Christians while we wait for Jesus's return? Reading from 2 Peter 3, Pastor Chris points out three characteristics that we should exemplify as we anticipate Christ's return. We do have to make a decision as to how we will live; we cannot have the world and Christ at the same time.

    The Half Full Life
    Having a thankful attitude makes us better people. But how can we maintain a thankful attitude amid a thankless culture? Pastor Chris gives us three points from 1 Thessalonians 5:12 - 22 to actualize an attitude of thankfulness in our lives.

    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.

    The Believer’s Secret to a Favored Life
    As Pastor Chris lays out for us in this message, Psalm 1 shows that to live the blessed, favored life that God wants for us, we have choices to make in how we live. And there is a direct connection in the believer's life to the favor and success that they enjoy to the that on which they meditate.

    Surviving Stress
    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.

    Healed but Not Healed
    In this message, Pastor Chris looks at Luke 5:17 - 26. In this passage, we see the Lord's power and ability to heal and we see faith to receive. But, as Pastor Chris emphasizes, we also see the courage it takes to receive the healing. Some people will never receive transformation in their life because they do not have the courage to do so. Before Pastor Chris's message, we hear from Tammy Tidd of House of Grace as she gives an update on the ministry and the life transformations that are happening there.

    The Priority of Purity – Part 2
    In this continuation of "The Priority of Purity" message, Pastor Chris focuses on the character of Esau mentioned in the Hebrews 12:14 - 17 passage. As he points out, Esau, who trivialized spiritual things, represents people living after the flesh. Whereas his brother, Jacob, though not a pure representation, represents those living after the spirit. Esau was willing to trade the blessing for his fleshly satiation. We need to take heed and not trivialize or throw away the blessings and opportunities that God gives to us.

    Lining Up Spiritually
    As Pastor Richard Ware shows us from Romans 7:15 - 25, there is a battle going on in all of us between our flesh and our spirit. The one we feed is the one that dominates. As the Church, our aim must not be at the flesh of the unbeliever, but at their soul. We must learn to minister to the soul and not the flesh. In this Installation Service of Pastor Chris Cain, we also hear an exhortation from Wade Urban and are ministered to in song by Stacey Ware.
