Facing Failure
The road to success is lined with failings. And whether those failings are good or bad lies in the eyes of the beholder. We need to use our failures to become a better person, rather than a bitter person. In this message, Pastor Chris shows five points from John 21:1 - 17 that encourage us to not allow our failures to keep us down or tell us we are no longer wanted by God.

    Simplicity
    Have we lost the real simplicity of our relationship with Jesus? It seems that when it comes to faith and our walk with God, we have overcomplicated it. Walking with the Lord and serving Him should be marked with joy and peace, not strife and turmoil. In this message, Pastor Chris highlights four simple and essential truths about serving Jesus from the passage found in Luke 10:38 - 42.

    What To Do When You Feel Like Giving Up
    We are all going to have seasons, moments, situations when we find ourselves bummed out, wanting to give up. What do we do in those moments? In this message, Pastor Chris shows us from Luke 9:51 - 62 Jesus' model of persistence that we can emulate. He also reminds us of the importance of perseverance as seen in one of the most important affirmations of faith--Philippians 3:14.

    Blessings in the Valley of Baca
    The Christian pilgrimage is not always smooth sailing and every believer will walk their own Valley of Baca (Valley of Bitterness). Pastor Chris discusses three valleys that we all walk through at moments in our life and shows, from Psalm 84:1 - 7, that if we lean on God and find our strength in Him, He will make springs and pools in those valleys.

    Your Body, God’s Temple
    In order for our lives to make an impact on somebody else's life, we have to be charged up with Holy Spirit. We cannot give away what we do not have. In this encouraging message, Pastor Chris reminds us from 1 Corinthians 6:19 and 20 that we are now God's dwelling place and he makes three points as to how God is working with these temples of flesh.

    The Oil of Anointing
    There is a desperate demand in every believer's life for Holy Spirit's oil. We have to keep our lives full of that oil as we wait for Jesus' imminent return. As Pastor Chris teaches from Matthew 25:1 - 13, he points out several lessons that say something to each and every believer today. He reminds us that we must have more than "a form of godliness but denying its power. (2 Timothy 3:5)"

    Do You Want to Get Well?
    Salvation is not just a "get-out-of-hell-free" card; salvation is just the beginning of all that Jesus accomplished on the cross. He wants us to be completely whole--body, soul AND spirit. Pastor Chris delves into this idea and expounds on Jesus' encounter with the sick man found in John 5:1 - 15. Pastor Chris lays out three points from that poignant question asked by Jesus, "Do you want to get well?"

    The Wind of Holy Spirit
    Wind is powerful and can move things thought to be immovable. In his continuation of the series, "Let the Church Be the Church," Pastor Chris looks at the powerful force of Holy Spirit's wind, referencing Genesis 1:1, 2. He highlights that where ever the wind of Holy Spirit is moving, things of eternal consequence are going to happen and that God is intimately involved with His creation, as seen in these first two verses of the Bible.

    Defeating the Killer Vines
    The word "worry" comes from an old Anglo-Saxon word meaning "to choke". This is an appropriate definition as worry tends to strangle and suffocate us. In this message, Pastor Chris takes inspiration from his weeping cherry tree and Philippians 4:4 - 8 to remind us that if we do not allow Holy Spirit to prune us and clear out the strangling vines of worry in our life, we will be stifled, suffocated and eventually have a fruitless life.

    Christ is Risen: So What?

    The passion of the earliest believers who carried the Good News to their world did not come from frightened followers who seemingly knew of a skeleton. The resurrection of Jesus is an historic fact that even non-biblical historians never denied. Christ is risen! So what does that mean for us today? In this powerful Easter message, Pastor Chris lays out three points of application from Romans 6:1 - 4 and shows us how our lives can be empowered when applied.
