The Basics of Breakthrough
There are times in our lives when we experience unbelievable victory and breakthrough. But there are also times when we must work through and persevere to the next breakthrough. We must work through the process God has for us to see that next breakthrough and we must understand that as we begin to step into what God has for us, the enemy will raise up a level of resistance. How do we handle that resistance? In this message, Pastor Chris highlights strategies from 2 Samuel 5:17 - 25, from the life of King David, that we can employ to be victorious and experience our breakthroughs.

    Identity – Who You Are In Christ
    In this message, we hear from guest ministers Wade and Connie Urban of Restoration Ministries. Teaching from Mark 10:46 - 52, Wade looks at the encounter Bartimaeus had with Jesus. Bartimaeus knew the covenant promises but they were not operating in his life and he lost hope, until he began hearing about Jesus. Just as Bartimaeus' eyes were opened, ours need to be opened to what we have in the here and now, through Jesus Christ. We do not have to wait for the "sweet by and by" to walk in all that Jesus accomplished for us through the cross and His resurrection.

    Sowing and Reaping
    When God created the universe, He established laws by which to govern it. These laws are fixed, absolute and predictable. In this message, Pastor Chris looks at one of the most important of those laws in Galatians 6:7 - 9--the law of sowing and reaping. From these verses, he highlights five basic principles of the law of sowing and reaping.

    When Christ Returns
    The New Testament contains more than 300 prophecies regarding the second coming of Jesus Christ. That means 1 out of every 25 verses reassures us of His return. In those prophecies, much is shrouded in mystery and sealed up for the very end. But there is one clear fact: Jesus IS going to return visibly, literally and victoriously! In this timely message, Pastor Chris encourages us from 1 Thessalonians 4:14 - 5:11 regarding the rapture of the Church. Whether or not we agree on the timeline of events, we can agree on the surety of Christ's return and we need to recapture the understanding, as the early Church had, that Jesus could return at any moment and we need to be ready and hold on to this "blessed hope".

    The Spirit is Willing, But the Flesh is Weak
    Our biggest struggle in this life is not with outward forces, but with the person in the mirror. Jesus knew the full force of that inward battle between flesh and Spirit and He admonished His disciples to victory while He was in the midst of the battle Himself, in the garden of Gethsemane. In this message, Pastor Chris lays out those four points from Jesus found in Matthew 26:36 - 41. It is critical, in these current times, that we learn how to "stay awake and keep watch".

    A Formula for Faith & Freedom
    "If we are not governed by God, we will inevitably be ruled by tyrants." -William Penn
    In spite of those who would like to redact American history, it is a holy history. Though not without imperfections, God's fingerprint can be seen throughout her history. Yet, we must remember, that a nation's only hope for blessing is to have God as its Lord (Psalm 33:12). In this message, Pastor Chris breaks down Psalm 2 and lays out a formula for maintaining faith and freedom, not only corporately, but individually. He reminds us that is it God's purpose that will ultimately prevail over man's purposes.

    Homes Under Attack
    "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance." -Thomas Jefferson We are engaged in a great spiritual fight in our homes and families. To combat this, we must steadfastly stand to maintain the Biblical standard of ethics that the enemy is systematically destroying. We have to stand against his agenda and determine to protect our families. In this message, Pastor Chris enumerates three points from Ephesians 6:10 - 18 that lay out our strategies for standing. He emphasizes the critical need for us to hold the line, for the sake of our loved ones souls.

    Get Out of the Gray
    God tells us what is coming, not so we will worry and fret about the future, but so we will put our trust in Him and not lose our peace as we see things come to pass. We see one such alert in 2 Timothy 3:1 - 5. As Pastor Anthony points out, the Church needs to not assume this is talking about the world. We need to examine ourselves to see if we have made areas gray that God has made black and white. We need to come back to God's Word. Period.

    His Blood Still Speaks
    Memorial Day is the day on our calendar set aside to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom. As we celebrate, we must remember the ultimate One Who gave His ultimate life for the ultimate price for our ultimate freedom. In this message, Pastor Chris reminds us of why it was necessary for Jesus to shed His blood and, from Hebrews 12:18 - 24, gives us three points of His blood's efficacy.

    Having a Positive Family In a Negative World
    Parenthood is the greatest ministry in the world. In a culture that is increasingly diminishing parenthood's value, how can we grow strong, healthy families? Pastor Chris answers that question in this Mother's Day message, centered on 1 Thessalonians 1:3. He also emphasizes the critical role that mothers have in rearing a strong, healthy family.
