  • A Hope That Brings Life

     | 1,182 views

    This message is for those who struggle with the moral decay of our nation. It is intended to remind us that we are not to conform to the world; but rather, we are to stand firm in the laws and statutes of the New Jerusalem.

    St. Augustine wrote a book entitled the City of God, in which he discussed our identity with the holy city.(1) Throughout the Old and New Testaments, both Jews and Christians identified themselves with Jerusalem. Wherever they journeyed or resided, they did not consider themselves citizens of ...read more

  • Beware Of False Prophets

    There are many false prophets in the world today, and there are many false and crooked preachers. This passage provides some insight on how to identify those who are sharing false revelations and teaching false doctrine.

    I’ve entitled our message this morning, “Beware of False Prophets.” I watch a lot of Christian programming on YouTube; and YouTube, through its algorithms, tries to tailor a watch list that lines up with my own preferences. But instead of getting sound Christian programming, the algorithm keeps ...read more

  • Give Us A King

    This passage shares the account of a church that is looking at what the church down the road is doing. The pastor (Samuel) tries to lead this church (Israel) according to God’s will, but the congregation won’t heed his counsel.

    As we look at this chapter of 1 Samuel today, there unfolds a scene that can be applied to discussing the goal of churches today. What is the vision of some churches? Do churches think in a Christ-centered manner, or do they think in a worldly manner? What I mean is this: Are churches today ...read more

  • God Pursues The Lost

    This message looks at how people run from God when He is only trying to rescue them. What are some of the ways in which the Lord pursues the lost? And what happens when He actually catches the person who’s running?

    This morning we are going to look at some words of revelation from the Lord spoken by the prophet Elihu to Job. In Elihu’s words of wisdom, we find a message that can be applied to those who are lost without salvation in Jesus Christ; and I wish to begin this sermon with an illustration: One ...read more

  • Light In Earthen Vessels

     | 827 views

    God saw a lowly farmer like Gideon as a mighty warrior. When God looks at each of us, He sees a mighty warrior too. However, that warrior doesn’t appear unless we put our trust in the Lord and rely entirely on Him in faith.

    Our text today will come from the New International Version. In our message we’re going to view a story about an ordinary man who had an intense struggle with trusting God, and this man’s name was Gideon. We will learn how when Gideon finally trusted the Lord, that he understood what it meant to ...read more

  • Power For Evangelism

    Isaiah’s prophecy applies to believers today, providing the words we need to move us into action in sharing our faith. This passage contains two parts: first, the gospel message; and secondly, assurance for the evangelist.

    Isaiah chapter 55 shares a message that can be applied to those getting ready to embark on a missionary journey, and to those getting prepared to share their faith in Christ. Within this passage is contained a two-part teaching. The first part, found in verses 1-7, shares the basic content of the ...read more

  • The Smiths

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 29, 2022
    based on 1 rating
     | 381 views

    Demetrius “Smith” represents someone whose judgement is clouded by selfish desires. Alexander "Smith" represents someone who doesn't want to be alone in his sin; who makes it a point to cause other Christians to stumble.

    I’ve entitled our message for this evening, “The Smiths.” Have you heard about the Smiths? Take for instance Zipporah Smith. “Who’s that?” you may say. Well, her husband, Moses, was used by God to deliver the Israelites from their bondage in Egypt. You see, Zipporah was a Kenite, and the word ...read more

  • The Ultimate Scapegoat

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 29, 2022
    based on 1 rating
     | 863 views

    What was the Scapegoat, and can it's function somehow be applied to Jesus? Christ made a one-time sacrifice and atonement to cover all sins. There is no more need for a scapegoat, as the Lamb of God became the final sin offering.

    I want to begin our sermon this morning by asking if you’ve ever before heard the word “scapegoat.” This term was coined by William Tyndale, the first great English Bible translator, who I will discuss a little further later on in our message. After Tyndale, the word came to be used for a person, ...read more

  • Understanding Servant Leadership

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 29, 2022
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,002 views

    Some people have never heard of servant leadership. This message discusses the wrong attitude for leadership. It then looks at three points defining servant leadership, and it concludes with the six primary characteristics.

    Dwight L. Moody once said, “The measure of a man is not how many servants he has, but how many men he serves.”(1) This evening’s message will discuss something called servant leadership; and servant leadership is when a leader humbles him or herself to the level as those who are served. Walter C. ...read more

  • Witnessing To Postmodern People

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 29, 2022
    based on 1 rating
     | 751 views

    This message discusses postmodernism. In today's moral relativism, truth is seen as subjective, and it can supposedly change with circumstances. So, how do we share about Jesus who is "the way, the TRUTH, and the life?"

    Our message this evening is entitled, “Witnessing to Postmodern People.” As we seek to understand how to better share our faith in today’s western culture, we must begin with a discussion on modernism and postmodernism. Modernism and postmodernism are eras, or time periods of societal thought and ...read more

  • Faith Like A Child

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 29, 2022
    based on 1 rating
     | 849 views

    We need to consider how our waning faith can become a hindrance to others. Jesus provides a warning about hindering other believers who have the faith of a child. It is also a warning about hindering children from coming to Christ.

  • A Measure Of Faith Series

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 28, 2022
    based on 2 ratings
     | 879 views

    When asking God for faith, we are correct in identifying that we need faith, or that perhaps we’re experiencing some kind of spiritual problem. However, we don’t need “more” faith. What we need is the faith already allotted to us.

    Our message for this evening is entitled, “A Measure of Faith,” and it’s taken from a passage of Scripture that’s sometimes called, “Faith and Duty.” Have you ever felt inadequate in your relationship with God, or perhaps in your ability to bear spiritual fruit? Have you ever felt that you don’t ...read more

  • Two Revealing Prayers Series

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 28, 2022
    based on 2 ratings
     | 764 views

    This passage records two prayers, in which are shown two kinds of hearts, whose contrast is not only seen in the way they make their requests, but also in the way they approach God. Some people trust in themselves; others trust in God.

    This evening’s sermon is entitled “Two Revealing Prayers,” and it’s taken from what is commonly called “The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector.” Darrell Bock, in The NIV Application Commentary, says, “This parable is really the parable of the two prayers. In those prayers appear two ...read more

  • Shrewd As Serpents Series

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 28, 2022
    based on 1 rating
     | 425 views

    “Be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves” (Mt. 10:16). This verse is not advocating hypocrisy. We are not to employ the methods of the ungodly, but we should posses a similar creative capacity. We need to be clever in our dealings.

    In Matthew 10:16, Jesus advised us to “be shrewd as serpents and innocent as doves.” Was Jesus telling believers to be two-faced hypocrites? Was He saying we need to be unjust in our daily activities and dealings, and then turn right around and act like model Christians on Sunday? No. Jesus was ...read more

  • Receiving Our Reward Series

    Contributed by Boomer Phillips on Mar 28, 2022
    based on 1 rating
     | 766 views

    This message looks at the parable of the rich man and Lazarus. All of us are going to be rewarded according to our deeds with either heaven or hell. Heaven and hell are real, and this passage shows a detailed description of each place.

    This morning’s sermon is entitled “Receiving Our Reward,” and it’s taken from what is commonly called “The Parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus.” All of us are going to be rewarded according to our deeds when this life is over. Some will enter into heaven and others will enter into hell. In his ...read more
