Just In Case
As a church, our focus must remain on the message of the Gospel and repentance, no matter who fills the pulpit or comes and goes in leadership. Jesus is the focus, not a person or a program. As Pastor Chris points out, this was Paul's admonition to the Ephesian church in Acts 20:17 - 35. As Paul exhorted that church so many years ago, we have the same goal--to not compromise that message that says you have to have a change of life, a change of direction--you have to have Jesus.

    Hugging a Porcupine
    We ought to thank God for the difficult persons in our lives because, if nothing else, they show us what we don't want to be. In this message, Pastor Chris references 2 Timothy 2:20 - 26 and gives us three points for dealing with the difficult people in our lives, the porcupines in our lives.

    Choose Life
    There is a pervasive pawl of death that hangs over America. Although suicide is not a new concept, it is a weapon the enemy is seemingly using more aggressively. God wants us to choose life, not death. As long as we have breath, God has a purpose for our life. In this timely and meaningful message, Pastor Chris encourages us from Deuteronomy 30 to choose life and points to two practical ways to resist the lies from the enemy.

    Fan the Flame
    As Dr. E. Stanley Jones put it, "The human spirit fails unless the Holy Spirit fills." All of us were made for passion. We need to have purpose, but we also need passion, a fire that burns on the inside of us. We need to have such a flame burning in our heart that, come what may, Satan cannot extinguish it. Be encouraged with this message as Pastor Chris preaches from 2 Timothy 1:3 - 9.

    How To Get from Here To Heaven
    When it comes to Heaven, reservations are required. In this message, Evangelist Mike Livengood walks us down the Roman Road and discusses our need for salvation and our need to share this message with those around us. He references Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Romans 5:8 and Romans 10:9, 10, 13.

    Genuine Love
    The thing that is going to transform people's lives is not performance. But rather, a sincere, genuine, unwaxed loved as Christ demonstrated on the cross. In this message, Pastor Chris looks at Romans 12:9 - 21 and dares us to live our lives without the mask and to truly love people, letting our "love be without hypocrisy."

    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.

    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.
