The Baptism of Holy Ghost
At the moment of conversion, Holy Ghost takes up residence within us. But, there is an experience following conversion that turbo-charges our life as a believer. As Pastor Chris shows from Acts 2:1 - 4, the initial, physical evidence of Holy Spirit infilling is speaking in other tongues. We need that power component to be effective at all God has for us. And it is a gift for ALL believers.

    Holy Ghost and Gifts
    Starting with 1 Corinthians 12:1 - 11, Pastor Chris explains the difference between the way Holy Spirit operates in our private, devotional life and how He operates in the congregational life of a church. It is critical that we understand this difference and the need for the gifts of Holy Ghost when we are gathered together.

    Have Faith In God
    In this foundational message, Pastor Chris looks at one of the most important ingredients we must have to experience any level of success in God's Kingdom--prayer in faith. He shows from Mark 11:12 - 26 that the point of prayer is faith and we will only go as far as we learn how to pray.

    A New Day & A New Beginning
    We cannot look back at how God has moved in the past and expect Him to move that way now or in the future. Reading from Jeremiah 31:31 - 34, Pastor Chris lays out three concepts that we need for a new day and a new beginning so that we can move forward into all that God has for us.

    What To Do With The World
    What is the Church to do with the world? We cannot abandon it but we cannot blend into it either. There are two extremes that the Church needs to avoid--licentiousness and legalism. How can we avoid both extremes? Find out in this message as Chris references 1 John 2:15 - 17.

    Forgetting, Reaching, Pressing
    Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose? Many people are searching for answers to these questions. We can find the answers only in Jesus Christ. He tells us who we are, why we are here and what our purpose is. Referencing Philippians 3:7 - 15, Chris shows us how to practically accomplish finding our identity and living purposefully.

    Transitions
    Only one thing is certain in life--there will be change. How we handle that change will say a lot about us. Our path does not always follow a straight route. But, if we keep our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, we can navigate the detours and bring glory to God in the midst of the transitions. In this message, Chris shares some ideas about navigating the transitions of life, using Acts 15:36 - 16:9 as an example.

    Dealing with Jezebel
    There is an idea, an attitude, that, when it gets loose, can hinder or even halt a move of God. It is not always evident and always has an agenda. Its ultimate desire is to control, to dominate and to dictate. This attitude is serious about winning, no matter the cost and no matter who gets hurt in the process. Referencing 1 Kings 21:1 - 18 and Revelation 2:18 - 20, Chris talks about this deadly attitude and how we can deal with it.

    The Devices of Darkness
    There is a very real enemy that we are up against. We are in a conflict for the very existence of our lives and the lives of those around us. It is important for us to know who our enemy is, how he works and how to defeat him. Referencing Zechariah 3:1 - 5 and Revelation 12:7 - 11, Chris shows the four ways in which Satan uses accusations in his tactic to derail believers.

    The Will of God
    God desires to bless us. And as our hearts are set on Him and His ways, He allows for some latitude in making decisions. There are even times when God will ask us what we desire. In this message, Chris looks at Jeremiah 29:11 - 13 to give some clarification to understanding the will of God. The will of God, according to Romans 8:28, is God Himself wanting to work together for good everything that happens in our lives.
