When Revival Comes
Revival means "to come back to life," "a spiritual awakening," "a returning to God." One of the greatest misconceptions of revival is that it is only needed by those who have fallen away from God. On the contrary, every believer needs seasons of renewal, of fresh visitations from God. Without these, we will struggle or possibly not even be able to accomplish what God has for us to do. Referencing Revelation 2:1 - 7, Pastor Chris highlights three marks of true revival.

    Let Us Pray
    As we see our country seemingly coming apart at the seams, it can be easy to get discouraged or wonder if anything can be done. As Pastor Chris brings this timely message, he references Daniel 10:1 - 3 and reminds us of the powerful tool we have called "fasting". He calls us to fast, pray and earnestly seek God during this particular time in our nation.

    The Spirit of Winning
    Winston Churchill is noted to have said that "Success is going from one failure unto another without losing your enthusiasm." The Church needs to have that kind of attitude, the kind of spirit that we see Caleb have in Joshua 14:6 - 14--a spirit that gets God's attention when push comes to shove, a spirit that speaks God's Word when everyone else is speaking negatively. In this message, Pastor Chris points out four lessons for life that we learn from Caleb.

    First Things First
    One of the most important lessons for life is setting and maintaining priorities. And the thread which should run throughout every one of those priorities is the Kingdom of God. In this message, Pastor Chris looks deeper into Matthew 6:33 & 34 and shows three ways in which we can seek God's Kingdom first. He encourages us that if we keep our relationship and our walk with God where it rightly belongs, He will help us to keep everything else in its appropriate focus.

    I Am Because of Who Christ Is
    In this message, Pastor Anthony reminds us of who we are in Christ Jesus, based on Scripture. We must get back to making Jesus the center of all we do and take Him from the peripheral of life to our main focus.

    Born In a Manger, Raised On a Cross
    We cannot forget, in the wander of the Christmas season, in seeing the nativity recreations, that the manger is indivisibly connected to the cross. As Pastor Chris reminds us from John 3:1 - 17,  the baby found in a manger at Bethlehem was born to die on the cross of Calvary, to be the Savior for all. Jesus is the expression of God's love for every single person.

    Launch Out Into the Deep
    Jesus calls us to take an adventure of faith with Him, going deeper into the things of God, all to be used for His glory. No matter how long a believer has walked with God, there are deeper depths for him or her. So what kind of people does God use for His glory? In this message, Pastor Chris references Luke 5:1 - 11 to describe the five kinds of people that God uses and wants to take deeper into Him.

    Beating Babylon
    Is life just the pursuit of being happy? Tragically, in the world, and even in the Church, people are pursuing happiness rather than holiness. Our great challenge as believers today is battling to beat Babylon--not losing our pursuit of holiness for the pursuit of happiness. In this message, Pastor Chris gives us three great keys to live a holy life in the midst of Babylon, just as Daniel did in Daniel 1:1 - 8.

    Heart Matters
    In this message, Pastor Chris looks at Proverbs 4:23 and gives us five ways in which we can be diligent with what pertains to our heart. As he explains, when the Bible references the heart, it is referring to the essence of our being, our true inner self, not the physical muscle. As the world grows darker and farther away from God, it is imperative that we be dedicated to keeping our heart tethered to God's heart.

    The Lord Is On Your Side
    As believers, we have reason to rejoice and not be anxious. In this encouraging message, Pastor Anthony walks through Philippians 4:4 - 9 and reminds us Who is on our side. Nothing going on in this world has taken God by surprise and He is sovereign over all. To remain strong and courageous in this world, our focus must remain on Him.

    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.

    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.

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.
