A Prayer for the Bride of Christ – Eph. 3:14-21 (sermon audio)

“Pray without ceasing.” That is what Paul had written in 1 Thessalonians 5:17.  Not only did he write it, he lived it, and we see that come out throughout his letters.  There are many times that Paul records specific things for which he is praying.  In Eph. 3:14-21, we notice three specific things that Paul prayed for.  Join us as we study God’s Word Together.

Is Prayer Enough? – 2 Kings 20:1-6 (sermon audio)

10/8/17 a.m. sermon

In response to a recent tragedy, a number of people starting proclaiming that “thoughts and prayers” were not enough.  Sometimes, it is true that even though we ought to pray in all situations, there is additional action that we can take to help those in need.  Other times, the only option we have is to pray.  In this lesson, we look at examples of both together.

God’s Word on Authority – Psalm 2:2-4 (sermon audio)

9/24/17 a.m. sermon

It’s clear that many in our world have an issue with authority.  The Bible teaches that if one has a problem with authority, he has a problem with God, because God has instituted authority in all areas of our lives (in church, in society, and in the home).  One who claims to be a Christian must be subject to authority, or his religion is not from the Bible, it is self-made religion.

I Want You to Know Him – Eph. 1:15-23 (sermon audio)

9/10/17 p.m. sermon

The apostle Paul was always ready to let the brethren to whom he wrote know that he was praying for them.  The letter to the Ephesians is no different as he tells them, “I never cease giving thanks for you and I am regularly remembering you in prayer.”  In particular, Paul prays for them to grow in the knowledge of God, in three specific ways that we will consider in this lesson.  He wanted them to grow in knowledge concerning their hope, concerning their inheritance, and concerning God’s power.

What Kind of “Salty” Language Are You Using? – Col. 4:2-6

My Sermon from Sunday morning, 12/20/15

We have been surrounded for so long by unsavory language, especially that which dishonors and disrespects the name of God (Ex. 20:7), that we have in many cases ceased to notice it.  This is extremely dangerous for the church, and we must keep a close watch on what we say, especially when it comes to the name of God.
