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.

    The Water of God’s Spirit
    Integral to the soul of man is an insatiable thirst that is only satisfied by the water of Holy Spirit. In Scripture, water is one of the great symbols of the work of Spirit in our lives. When that water of life is working in us and flowing through us, people will pick up on that and sense it and long for it. In this message, Pastor Chris preaches from John 7:37 - 39, exhorting us to go deeper in the river that is flowing from the throne of grace.

    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)

    When Fire Comes – Part 2
    In this continuation of the "Let the Church Be the Church" series, Pastor Chris goes further into his message on the imagery of fire regarding the Church's anointing. Looking at Luke 3:15 - 18 and Luke 12:49 - 53 again, he discusses that the fire of God is what we long for and desire, but we must also be vigilant to not let the fire of sin consume us.

    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.
