Making a House a Home
Series: (All)
God established three primary institutions in this life: government, Church and family, with the latter being the fundamental building block of the first two. In spite of what current culture would like to say, the family does still indeed matter. Referencing Ruth 1:1 - 19, Pastor Chris gives us three principles for making a house a home.

    Revival: American Style
    Revival is not a man-made thing. There is a divine framework and pattern revealed in the Word of God to which every true move of God has followed. This paradigm can be found in Psalm 85. In this message, Pastor Chris takes us on a journey through revival history and challenges us with Charles Finney's seven principles to expect a "revival of religion".

    Whoever Said Do Away With the Cross?
    Modernity looks down it's nose at ancient people whose idols were made of stone, wood and precious metals. But we have an idolatry today that is far more wicked than even that which is recorded in the Old Testament. It is preaching a salvation without the cross of Christ. As Pastor Chris preaches from 1 Corinthians 1:18 - 2:5, he admonishes us to take seriously the call to "take up our cross and follow Jesus." There must be a confrontation of our sin and true repentance.

    Is This the Beginning of the End?
    As we look at current world circumstances, we might wonder if the end is imminent. Having seen plagues, natural disasters and wars all throughout history, this current state of affairs seems somehow different. In this message, Pastor Chris discusses this and gives us several points from Luke 21:5 - 36 that we can do to remain steadfast as we look forward to the return of King Jesus.

    COVID-19 & Christ
    As we continue to walk through an uncertain, ever-changing time, we face the tension between the current crisis and Jesus Christ. We must maintain that balance between being paralyzed with fear and being careless with indifference. As Pastor Chris reads the accounts found in Matthew 8 and 9, he brings to our attention three points to carry us through to the other side of this and other moments of uncertainty.

    Whatever Became of Sin?
    There is such a thing as sin; but there is also forgiveness. The bad news is that there is none righteous, we have all sinned. But, the good news is that there is a Savior--Jesus! As Pastor Chris ministers from Luke 7:31 - 50,  we see the proper response to the forgiveness of our Savior in the woman worshiping at His feet. And we see in the cynical onlookers the response of hearts calloused to their fallen nature.

    When the Elements Melt
    The manner in which we view our past largely determines our present. And how we look forward to the future greatly impacts how we live today. As Pastor Chris discusses in this reassuring message from 2 Peter 3, our present has meaning because our past is under the blood of Jesus and our future is secure in Him. Pastor Chris reminds us that our ultimate goal is not the here and now; it is the new heavens and the new earth wherein dwells righteousness.

    Faith > fear
    Living for and serving God does not exempt us from life's storms. But, God has promised to never leave us nor forsake us. Pastor Chris encourages us with three points taken from Paul's encouragement given during his perilous travel to Rome, found in Acts 27:1 - 26. As we face our current perilous times, we can remain in faith knowing that just as God was with Paul in the midst of the storm, so He is with us.

    Righteous Among Unrighteous
    Looking at the description of Lot found in 2 Peter 2:1 - 9, Pastor Chris examines what it is to live righteously in an unrighteous world. There is a real battle we are facing right now. But, if the righteous withdraw from the world, who will win them to Christ? Pastor Chris encourages us that although we will be vexed at times, the same God that delivered Lot out of Sodom knows how to deliver us at exactly the right time.
