    When he arrives at Jerusalem everyone is afraid of him until he meets a man named Barnabas who finally takes him to stay with Peter and meet with James, freely moving around the city of Jerusalem for the next couple of weeks preaching Christ in the local synagogues among his old buddies who turn against […]

  • Saul To Paul – Part 3: WeaknessJuly 21, 2016 - 3:17 pm

    Paul had a longstanding problem with the brethren in Corinth.  Many of their leaders were affluent, politically connected, powerful, influential; leaders in their community.  And some were so caught up in their wealth and power that they had concluded that their status was a sign of God’s approval and blessing. Of course, that meant that […]

    In Acts 9 we have the story of Saul who would later become Paul.  Saul fully intended to continue wreaking havoc upon the Christians that had gone to Damascus when the persecutions broke out in Jerusalem.  Of course, his trip was interrupted by a bright light and Jesus’ presence as He questioned Saul the persecutor: “Why […]

Jesus’ Words For Life: Love Me

July 10, 2016

“…teaching them everything I have commanded you” means it is important to know what Jesus commanded us to teach.  This series is focused upon listing those commands that Jesus gave His disciples and us to both live out and to teach to others.

When Jesus commanded us to love Him above all others (Matthew 10:17) He was addressing the all-encompassing nature of His love with which He loves us and telling us that we must love Him with the same devotion.  This is more than a choice or decision that is done in spite of how we feel; it is something that overflows because of what He has done for us.  It is out of gratitude for such undeserved, un-merited,  unconditional love from God Himself that we love Him and we love others.

Jesus’ Words For Life: Believe In Me

July 3, 2016

“…teaching them everything I have commanded you” means it is important to know what Jesus commanded us to teach.  This series is focused upon listing those commands that Jesus gave His disciples and us to both live out and to teach to others.  “Believe In Me” is more than a one-time, simple affirmation.  It is a deep drinking of the water that quenches the thirsting soul crying out for God.  Believing in Christ means trusting Him and His promises, finding satisfaction in Him and allowing Him to come to us as our fountains of life overflow in His presence.  

This sermon was given in three sections for the July 4th weekend.  Only second and third sections are recorded.

Discipleship: The Father, Son & Holy Spirit

June 12, 2016

THE GREAT COMMISSION: “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20)

In his second presentation our guest speaker, Jason Allmon, focuses our attention upon baptizing new disciples “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”  What does this mean for us as we live out our lives as Jesus followers and as we are going into the world to make disciples?
