How Long Will You Waver?
One of the greatest keys to enduring success is learning how to make the right kind of decisions. And our lives are not a matter of chance, but choice. In this message, Pastor Chris exhorts us from 1 Kings 18:18 - 21 to make the choice to choose Jesus. He reminds us that God did give us the freedom to make any decision we want; but, with every decision, there is a consequence.

    Being the Person God Can Use

Pastor Chris lays out three points on how we can realize our purpose in God and live it out to the fullest.

    Breaking Free: It’s a New Day
    The word "new" fills Scripture with the understanding of the synonymousness of God's grace and power that is constantly bringing freshness to our lives. We need to avoid spiritual staleness and not allow our faith to become moldy. In this final message of the "Breaking Free" series, Pastor Chris encourages us from Isaiah 52:1 & 2, with five things that God is saying on how we can avoid the attitude of "oldness" and shake off the "weight...which so easily ensnares us".

    Breaking Free From Shame
    Shame--that acute sense of failure, unworthiness, embarrassment, the emotional residue of sin. It can be overwhelming. In this message, Pastor Chris gives us hope from 1 John 3:19 & 20 and reminds us that Jesus came and gave His life to set us free from the residue of sin. And that there is deliverance from the shame of the past.

    Breaking Free From Poverty
    Jesus came to liberate all of us from the bondage of poverty--spiritual, emotional, social, and financial poverty. According to Luke 4:16 - 19, Jesus came to make us whole, completely free, not just save us from hell fire. Pastor Chris shows us that the spirit of prosperity begins with generosity and a trust in God as our Provider. And he reminds us that the reason for God's blessing on our lives is so that we can be a blessing to those around us.

    Breaking Free From Strongholds

If we are to fight and be victorious, we must learn to demolish strongholds. In this message, Pastor Chris references 2 Corinthians 10:3 - 5 and shows us five way in which we can demolish strongholds and live a victorious, though not necessarily easy, life.

    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 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).

    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.
