Tear Down Your High Places



You’re making progress. Good. But there is some issue in your life that you haven’t addressed – some issue that you have been unwilling to deal with. Some sin that you’re letting hang on.

In Judah, there were a number of good kings. But even the good kings did not take down the “high places” of idolatry. They kept them up. And God held that decision against them. They went so far in their reforms, but they did not go all the way. Click to learn more in this sermon from 2 Kings.


Consider The Source: Who Are You Listening To?



Everyone is someone’s disciple. Someone is teaching you. Someone is attempting to remake you in their image. The question is: who? As a Christian, you need to consider the sources that are instructing you and your children (from church to the media to schooling). Not everyone can be right about the big questions in life, and some sources are outright wrong and depraved. Click to listen to this relevant sermon from Colossians 2.


The Reformation: I Am Not Ashamed Of The Gospel



Don’t do it. Don’t water down the Gospel. Don’t pander to sinners. Don’t appease goats and starve sheep. Don’t let people die on your watch. Tell people the truth!

The World And The Devil Within It



The devil is real. And the whole world is under his sway. That was the Apostle John’s exact warning in 1 John 5. With that said, what does the devil’s “reality” mean for you? And presuming that he attacks believers and the church, how does he go about it? Click to listen to our latest study.


Original Sin: Is Man Born Good, Bad, Or Neutral



Original sin – is it true? Is man born good, bad, or neutral? In other words, does the Bible say that we come into this world innocent, wicked, or as a spiritual free agent? The Apostle Paul taught on this topic at length – click to learn what he said in Romans 5.


A Reason To Believe (Faith in God and Scripture)



Belief or disbelief – either choice comes with reasons. What are yours? If you believe in God (or if you don’t) you may be expected to give a reason for those views. But not everyone can. In this sermon, we consider some reasons for faith in God and His book.


The War Of The Worldviews



Wars begin with words. It is words that shape our opinions and outcomes – words, semantics, and definitions form our “worldview.” But where do these words come from? And are their sources reliable? Click to learn more in this sermon on “The War Of The Worldviews.”


In These Last Days
