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.

    It Starts Right Here
    As believers, we have the Answer the hurting world is searching for. And to be the light and salt that the world is crying out for, we need to take our rightful place as the Church. To do that, we must humble ourselves and allow God to work in us, as He desires, so that He can work through us. In this message, Pastor Anthony reminds us that the revival we pray for and long for starts with us allowing God to do that necessary work.

    Seven Guarantees for the Days to Come
    In our current age, we have abundant access to technology that supposedly makes our life better. Yet there is such a "paralysis of analysis", that many people do not know what to believe. They are running hither and yon more than ever before and are lacking a foundation. In this message, Pastor Chris references Daniel 12:1 - 4 and gives us seven guarantees that we can sink our teeth into in this ever changing world.

    Redeemed by the Blood
    During this service, Pastor Chris reminds us that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins (Hebrews 9:22). And because Jesus laid down His life at the cross, He alone can wash away our sins. He alone can do in us what has to be done, that we cannot do for us and ours. He came to redeem us from our fallen nature, to reconcile us to God. And, as Scripture proclaims, "...God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

    Fear No Evil
    We know that evil does exist, and it can seem to be so much greater than we are and it can look overwhelming. Is there anything we can do to make a difference against it? In this message, Pastor Chris encourages us from Psalm 23, highlighting verse 4. He reminds us that even in the midst of the darkness, we can fear no evil. There is an enemy, but we need not fear because the Greater One is with us.

    Let Us Pray
    As we see our country seemingly coming apart at the seams, it can be easy to get discouraged or wonder if anything can be done. As Pastor Chris brings this timely message, he references Daniel 10:1 - 3 and reminds us of the powerful tool we have called "fasting". He calls us to fast, pray and earnestly seek God during this particular time in our nation.

    First Things First
    One of the most important lessons for life is setting and maintaining priorities. And the thread which should run throughout every one of those priorities is the Kingdom of God. In this message, Pastor Chris looks deeper into Matthew 6:33 & 34 and shows three ways in which we can seek God's Kingdom first. He encourages us that if we keep our relationship and our walk with God where it rightly belongs, He will help us to keep everything else in its appropriate focus.

    I Am Because of Who Christ Is
    In this message, Pastor Anthony reminds us of who we are in Christ Jesus, based on Scripture. We must get back to making Jesus the center of all we do and take Him from the peripheral of life to our main focus.

    Born In a Manger, Raised On a Cross
    We cannot forget, in the wander of the Christmas season, in seeing the nativity recreations, that the manger is indivisibly connected to the cross. As Pastor Chris reminds us from John 3:1 - 17,  the baby found in a manger at Bethlehem was born to die on the cross of Calvary, to be the Savior for all. Jesus is the expression of God's love for every single person.
