Scripture: Joshua 2:8-15

Series: How to Study the Bible Effectively

We continue our series on How to Study the Bible Effectively by looking at a historical narrative section of the Old Testament. Many people believe that narrative is the easiest part of the Bible to interpret, but there are pitfalls that can really trip up people who read these stories.

The Reason God Sent Jesus (John 3:1-21)

The Reason God Sent Jesus (John 3:1-21)

December 5, 2021

This Christmas season we will be in John’s Gospel looking at the references to Jesus being sent to earth - His incarnation. There are a lot of these references and we will work through them one by one. Today we consider the first of these “sent” passages which came when Jesus was speaking to Nicodemus.

[11/28/2021 PM]  How to Understand the Law (Exodus 23:1-9)

[11/28/2021 PM] How to Understand the Law (Exodus 23:1-9)

November 28, 2021

Speaker: Matthew Walker

Scripture: Exodus 23:1-9

We continue our series on How to Study the Bible Effectively by examining the opening books of the Old Testament. This will not be a survey of those important books, but an explanation of how to read them so as to better understand what God was doing. Many people misunderstand the purpose and nature of Old Testament Law.

[11/28/2021 AM]  The Only Condition is Come  (Isaiah 55)

[11/28/2021 AM] The Only Condition is Come (Isaiah 55)

November 28, 2021

Speaker: Matthew Walker

Scripture: Isaiah 55

Today we will introduce our church memory verses for 2022. Isaiah 55 is one of the most important texts in the entire Bible; some of the most precious thoughts ever written down are there. The overall meaning of the chapter is the universal call to salvation that God makes to the world. As great as this call is, it does have one condition—come. Those who are spiritually hungry and thirsty only need to come and God will give them a rich bounty that eternally satisfies.

[11/21/2021 PM] Are you Giving Thanks to God in Every Circumstance? (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

[11/21/2021 PM] Are you Giving Thanks to God in Every Circumstance? (1 Thessalonians 5:18)

November 21, 2021

Speaker: Pastor Joseph Jo

 

One of the things we have learned from the How to Study the Bible Effectively Series is the importance of context. Tonight, as preparation for Thanksgiving, we will look at a very short phrase, “In everything give thanks,” in its historical, literary, and theological contexts to understand the theological depth and practicality of this short command.

Three Reasons We Must Worship God (Psalm 103)

Three Reasons We Must Worship God (Psalm 103)

November 21, 2021

The first commandment is important. God said: “You cannot have any other gods before Me.” This command is the foundation for everything we are as believers. We trust in Christ because we believe that He is God and we worship Him and no one else. The horrible sin of idolatry is replacing God with another god, worshipping something other than Him. Today’s sermon examines a call to worship in the Psalms.

Nothing But the Blood (Genesis 3)

Nothing But the Blood (Genesis 3)

November 14, 2021

Speaker: David Mayes

Scripture: Genesis 3

God told Adam that he would die if he ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 2:17). But Adam did eat from it, and he immediately died spiritually, and then later physically. And by this "one man, sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned." (Romans 5:12) "For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of One (Jesus) shall many be made righteous." (Romans 5:19) But not without blood. NOTHING but the blood of Jesus can wash away our sins. Have you been washed? 

[11/7/2021 PM] Who Killed Goliath? (1 Chronicles 20:1-8)

[11/7/2021 PM] Who Killed Goliath? (1 Chronicles 20:1-8)

November 7, 2021

Speaker: Pastor Mattew Walker

Series: How to Study the Bible Effectively

We will take a short detour in our series on How to Study the Bible by looking at an interesting passage from the Old Testament about some of the military victories of David. While it might appear to be a mundane passage of Scripture, this text actually answers a seeming contradiction that many are unaware even exists. Tonight’s sermon: Who Killed Goliath? (1 Chronicles 20:1-8)

[11/07/2021 AM] How to Prosper (Psalm 1)

[11/07/2021 AM] How to Prosper (Psalm 1)

November 7, 2021

Speaker: Matthew Walker

Scripture: Psalm 1

Prosperity is something for which most of the world is searching. Some try to find it through get-rich-quick schemes. Others look to education or hard work as the answer. God has a method for prosperity, but it requires a radically different approach than these. God’s method is simple. He tells us that the prosperous man is one who submits to God’s rule over his life. There really is no other way.

[10/31/2021 PM] Determining to Study the Bible Through a Translation. (2 Timothy 2:15)

October 31, 2021

Speaker: Pastor Matthew Walker

Series: How to Study the Bible Effectively

 

God’s word is a beautiful, wonderful book full of principles and precepts for us to follow. How unfortunate it is that we do not have the original autographs (the actual first books that were written)! But what we do have, translations of those original writings, provide us everything we need to see the revelation of God in the pages. Tonight’s sermon builds on this idea of translation by encouraging us to use the translations we have.
