We are Children of Godl!

The Holy Spirit gives us assurance of our salvation! This sermon looks at four ways that the Holy Spirit assures us that we are Children of God!

We are Supernatural!

The Battle Within
September 28, 2014, Pastor Scott

We are in a battle. We are at war! We have an enemy that wants to destroy us and render us ineffective for the Kingdom of God! What is this enemy and how powerful is it? Watch to find out!

STOP! In the Name of the Law!
September 21, 2014, Pastor Scott

In this sermon we look at God's Law in relation to our sin. Paul has already told us in Romans 7:4 that as believers we "have died to the law." He says in 7:5 that the law "arouses sin" and in 7:6 that we "are released from the law." So, is God's law bad? What is its purpose? How does it relate to the unbeliever and to the believer? Watch to find out!

Fruit Inspection!
August 24, 2014, Pastor Scott

Romans 7:1-6 tells us that we were saved to bear fruit for God’s glory! So, we each need to make sure the fruit we are bearing is doing just that! We need to inspect our fruit to make sure it does not contain spots or blemishes. This sermon discusses the need for each of us to be fruit inspectors by looking at 2 Peter 3:14. 

Bear Fruit!
August 17, 2014, Pastor Scott

A geniune believer, who has been set free free from the power of sin and the condemnation that came with it, has the power through the Holy Spirit to bear fruit for God's glory! Actually, this is why we are saved! Watch to find out more!

Be Obedient!
August 10, 2014, Pastor Scott

In Romans 6:1-14,  we saw that we have the ability to live for God due to the fact that we are dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus!  In this message, from Romans 6:15-23, we see just how that happens! The only way we can truly live for God is by being obedient! God gives us all we need to live for Him, but we must choose to do so on a moment by moment basis! Watch to find out more!

Out with the Old, In with the New!
August 3, 2014, Pastor Scott

This sermon addresses how salvation changes us. And boy, does it change us! You see before we embrace Jesus as Savior and Lord, we are ultimately living for ourselves and trying to build our kingdom but when God saves us we are to die to ourselves and cease building our kingdom and start building His. He ruins our life. Our old, sinful, selfish, under His wrath life. In return, He gives us new life! Eternal life!! This new life also brings a new way of living! Watch to find out more!

Grace, Justification andf Life!
July 27, 2014, Pastor Scott

In v.12-21 Paul describes the greatness of what Jesus did for us by comparing and contrasting it to what the first man, Adam, did. One brought SIN and the other brought GRACE! One brought CONDEMNATION and the other brought JUSTIFICATION. One brought DEATH and the other brought LIFE! This sermon, from v.12-14, describes what Adam brought to the table to the entire human race and the next sermon, from v.15-21, will describe what Jesus brought to those who have faith in Him!In v.12-21 Paul describes the greatness of what Jesus did for us by comparing and contrasting it to what the first man, Adam, did. One brought SIN and the other brought GRACE! One brought CONDEMNATION and the other brought JUSTIFICATION. One brought DEATH and the other brought LIFE! Last week we discussed the hopeless condition that Adam left us in. This sermon, from v.15-21, describes what Jesus brought to those who have faith in Him!

Everyday Secure Faith

Everyday Sustaining Faith
May 25, 2014, Pastor Scott

Having faith is crucial for our everyday living. Faith not only saves us, it also sustains us! We all will face difficulties and trying times where our faith will be all we have to cling to get us through. The problem is many believers’ faith is just not that strong. When bad times come, along with them, comes doubt, fear and frustration instead of what should naturally come with a strong, vibrant and growing faith, peace. How about you? How strong and unwavering is your faith? Can it sustain you even through the most difficult situations? Do you experience peace through your toughest times? What does EVERYDAY SUSTAINING FAITH look like?

Are We Justified By Faith or Works?
May 18, 2014, Pastor Scott

Are we justified by faith or works? Do Paul and James contradict each other about this? In this passage, Pastor Scott discusses this very important issue and shows that we are justified by faith and not works. In this sermon, he discussses two important principles that we must remember when studying God's Word: 1)1) THE BIBLE NEVER CONTRADICTS ITSELF! and 2) CONTEXT! CONTEXT! CONTEXT! When it comes to understanding a verse or a passage of Scripture make sure you understand the CONTEXT!!!

You Gotta Have Faith!

Calling Out The Counterfeits II
January 26, 2014, Pastor Scott

Many people today rely on their good works, their church membership, the fact that they prayed a sinner’s prayer or that they  have been baptized for salvation. In this passage, Paul is challenging His readers to make sure they know that apart from a saving relationship with Jesus Christ we are all lost and under God’s wrath.

Calling Out The Counterfeits I
December 29, 2013, Pastor Scott

In this passage Paul calls out those Jews who thought they were the real deal but were only counterfeit.He shows them that they had they Law of God, they had studied it, memorized it and should have known it well enough to know that they stood condemned by it. Today, many Christians fall into the same category. They think they are the real deal but are only counterfeits.

Crime and Punishment
December 1, 2013, Pastor Scott

God is just and His judgments are always fair, in other words, the punishment always fits the crime. This sermon discusses specifically how God is just to judge those who do not have His law. The reason is becasue the truth about God is hard-wired into our DNA! He has wriiten it on all of our hearts. Watch to find out more!

Life or Death
December 1, 2013, Pastor Scott

It is a fact that will will all stand before God in judgment one day. Are you ready? It is a matter of life or death. The true beleiver will receive eternal life and the nonbeliever eternal death (separation from God). Our lives right can give a good indication which camp we are in. Watch to find out more.

God's Righteous Judgment
November 17, 2013, Pastor Scott

In Chapter 2 we see a people who also reject God, suppress His truth, chase after their sin but they do so not blatantly, not so much hatefully opposed to the things of God – INSTEAD they do so claiming to belong to God, to be a part of His people – in other words – they are religious – church goers as we may call them today. This sermon discusses that its NOT what’s on the outside that matters, how much good things you do or say, or what you think of yourself, or even what others think of you – what matters is what’s on the INSIDE and if you truly are a child of God or not. Watch to find out more.

God's Wrath

God’s wrath is real and it is vital for us to understand it if we are going to truly understand and appreciate our salvation. You see, the only way we can truly appreciate thegood news of the gospel is to we must first understand our guilt before a holy and righteous God!

October 20, 2013, Pastor Scott

Paul was not ashamed of being a part of the kingdom of God, the family of faith, the community of believers both on the universal and local scales! He knew that being a believer in Jesus Christ meant that you are a part of something much bigger than yourself, you are a part of a worldwide family of faith. We are all serving our King, doing His work, fighting a common enemy and facing common struggles. We are connected with each other! We are FAMILY! This sermon discusses what life in that family looks like!
