The Sacrifice of Praise
As believers, we are in a fight of faith and God has not left us weaponless. Our weapons are the Name of Jesus, the Word of God and the Blood of the Lamb. Unfortunately, many Christians do not even know what their weapons are, let alone know how to wield them. In this message, Pastor Chris expounds on Hebrews 13:15 and 16. He delves into how we launch our spiritual weapons into the heavenly realm where the real battle takes place--through prayer, proclamation and praise. Of these three, his focus in this message is praise.

    The Lost SonS
    We are battling in our time a certain mentality within the body of Christ of people who are so disconnected from the world in which they live, that they do not recognize the needs around them. The Church needs a paradigm shift when it comes to the love and grace and mercy of God towards those who are away from Him. In this message, Pastor Chris wraps up his series on Luke 15, looking at the final parable in verses 11 - 32. He points out that, although we are well aware of the lost son who left home, there was another lost son who also needed to repent--the one who stayed home but became self-righteous. Self-righteousness can put us as far away from God as going into a "far country".

    Greater Than
    In this message, Pastor Anthony looks at the different characters we see in the passage from Luke 7:36 - 50. He reminds us that we must remain humble like the woman who worshipped Jesus and not allow ourselves to become arrogant and proud like the Pharisees. We must remember that God is greater than our past, greater than our sins, greater than our shortcomings, greater than all.

    The Lost Coin
    The value of an object is based on what someone is willing to pay for it, no matter what other value is placed on it. God revealed our value by the exorbitant price He paid for us through the cross of Jesus Christ. In this message, Pastor Chris continues looking at the parables in Luke 15, focusing on verses 8 - 10. We are reminded that because of our value to God, He will not abandon His search for a lost soul. And, as believers, we should mimic His desire to see the lost come to Jesus.

    The Lost Sheep
    The Lord never wants us to forget His burden for people without Him. In this message, Pastor Chris dives into Luke 15, beginning with the first parable in verses 1 - 7 and points out that the subject of this, and the following parables, is not the lost sheep; but rather, the response of the shepherd to that lost sheep. He exhorts us to not become callous to the lost people around us, for those are the ones whom Jesus came to seek and to save--not explorers, not adventurers--lost people.

    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
    There is much unrealized potential in many lives, but that is not how God created us.

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