    The Eternal Child
    Can we fully comprehend what it meant for Jesus to put on humanity in the incarnation? In this Christmas message, Pastor Chris takes a different approach and looks at the nativity from Jesus's perspective, using John 1:1 - 18 as the reference. We need to understand what it must have been like for Christ to take on flesh and the pain of that decision. And we must be forever grateful that He willingly chose to take on the predicament of our pain.

    Facing Fear
    As Pastor Chris begins with Genesis 3:1 - 10, he points out that the first consequence of the fall was fear. Satan does not want us doing anything productive for God's kingdom and fear is one of his most potent weapons used to keep us immobile. We must learn to answer with faith when fear is knocking at our door and remember that as God has taken care of our past with His grace and mercy, He will also take care of our future.
