Walking with Kings: Saul – A Well-Intentioned Failure (1 Samuel 15)

For the next few weeks, we will be spending time with a number of kings that we read about in Scripture and the lessons we can learn from them. We will conclude with the One who was “born King of the Jews.” In this lesson, we consider Saul, and despite his good intentions, his failure to obey God in 1 Samuel 15.

Confidence Before His Throne – Hebrews 4:14-16, 10:19-26 (sermon audio)

We talk a lot about church attendance.  We ought to know how important it is for Christians to gather together for worship.  But it’s so much more than putting bodies in the seats.  It is important that we understand that God has given us good reasons for wanting to come and worship Him.  It’s all based in what He has done for us through His Son, Jesus Christ.

For Whom Did Christ Die? – An Answer to the Doctrine of Limited Atonement – Mt. 26:28 (sermon audio)

In this evening lesson, we continue examining the five core doctrines of Calvinism, focusing on the third part of the TULIP acronym, Limited Atonement.  Through this lesson, we hope to demonstrate that Christ died to give all people the opportunity to be saved, and to teach anything different robs the gospel of it’s power to save (Rom. 1:16)

The Promise of Atonement – Hebrews 9-10; Leviticus 16

Perhaps no day on the Jewish calendar was more important that the Day of Atonement.  It was a day which the book of Leviticus centers around.  And yet, it was not sufficient to fully take care of mankind’s sin problem.  That’s why Christ came, to be our sacrifice.  The Lamb of God came to take away the sin of the world.

God Will Provide a Lamb – Gen. 22:8 (sermon audio)

God’s plan for redeeming mankind was in place long before Christ came.  Through the family of Abraham, through the son of the promise Isaac, all the nations would be blessed.  In one instance, Abraham’s faith was tested, and God reaffirmed the covenant with the patriarch.
