[9/19/2021 AM] Three Lessons on Prayer (Matthew 26:36-46)

September 19, 2021

Speaker: Matthew Walker

Series: Communion Message

Scripture: Matthew 26:36-46

There is no better Teacher on prayer than the Lord Jesus. His example was incredible as He often spent hours communing with His heavenly Father. Today’s sermon examines one of the most important of these prayer meetings—our Lord’s prayer in Gethsemane. There is so much we can learn from Jesus here, but this message distills this story into three distinct lessons.

[9/12/2021 PM] The Old Testament (Hebrews 1:1 & Genesis 12:1-3)

[9/12/2021 PM] The Old Testament (Hebrews 1:1 & Genesis 12:1-3)

September 12, 2021

Speaker: Matthew Walker

Series: How to Study the Bible Effectively

Scripture: Hebrews 1:1 & Genesis 12:1-3

There are 39 books in the English version of the Old Testament. Written by as many as 40 different authors over 1,000 years, it is amazing that it can reveal God’s sovereign plan to His people. Of course, that is because God is the true Author of the Bible. Continuing our series on How to Study the Bible Effectively, we will focus on this first collection of books.

[9/12/2021 AM] Obey God with All Your  Heart (Jonah 3:1 - 4:3)

[9/12/2021 AM] Obey God with All Your Heart (Jonah 3:1 - 4:3)

September 12, 2021

Speaker: Matthew Walker

Series: Jonah Series

Scripture: Jonah 3:1 - 4:3

There are two levels of obedience. There is the outward obedience that conforms to some external pressure. This obedience looks right because it is visible. But real obedience is the kind of obedience that comes from the heart. This heart obedience is what God desires; that we would obey Him because we want to obey, not just because we feel like we must obey. Jonah obeyed God, but not because he wanted to. He did not have this type of heart obedience.

[9/5/2021 PM] The Importance of Comprehension—Do You Understand What You Are Reading? (Acts 8:26-40)

[9/5/2021 PM] The Importance of Comprehension—Do You Understand What You Are Reading? (Acts 8:26-40)

September 5, 2021

Speaker: Pastor Matthew Walker

Series: How to Study the Bible Effectively

God wants us to understand Him because faith comes by hearing. However, if one cannot hear, how can he have faith? If we cannot understand what we are reading in God’s word, there is no way we can learn to obey and follow Him. Learning to study the Bible effectively means learning how to comprehend God’s word. Tonight’s sermon: The Importance of Comprehension—Do You Understand What You Are Reading? (Acts 8:26-40)

[09/05/2021 AM] God’s Grace Response to Repentance (Jonah 2:10 - 3:2)

[09/05/2021 AM] God’s Grace Response to Repentance (Jonah 2:10 - 3:2)

September 5, 2021

Speaker: Matthew Walker

Series: Jonah Series

Every Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, my heart grieves for those who grew up with bad parents. There are more people like that than you might realize; maybe that describes you. What a blessing that we have a wonderful heavenly Father who loves and cares for us, even when we disobey Him. Jonah’s repentance to God over his sin led to God graciously responding by repairing their relationship and restoring him to service.

How to Study the Bible Effectively Series
 
Tonight begins one of the most important series in the history of our church. This series is on the theme: “How to Study the Bible Effectively.” Too many Christians lack the necessary knowledge about how to live God-pleasing lives because they do not really understand the rudimentary principles for how to study the Bible.
 
[8/29/2021 AM] The Blessing of Being Fished (Jonah 1:17-2:9)

[8/29/2021 AM] The Blessing of Being Fished (Jonah 1:17-2:9)

August 29, 2021

The psalmist asked the penetrating question: “Can I find a place where God is not already there?” He knew that he might attempt to run from God, but God would easily find him. Jonah thought he had outwitted God by having himself cast overboard, but God will not let someone die if he wants him to live. He is sovereign that way. Jonah discovered the truth that the fish is not a curse, but a blessing.

[08/22/2021 PM] Hezekiah’s Legacy (2 Kings 20:20-21)

[08/22/2021 PM] Hezekiah’s Legacy (2 Kings 20:20-21)

August 22, 2021

Speaker: Pastor Matthew Walker

 

King Hezekiah is one of the most fascinating characters in the Old Testament. He was one of the most faithful kings of Judah, yet his pride lead to the downfall of his nation. In that sense, he was a lot like us. He was a mixed bag of faithfulness and sin. He is both an example to follow and an example to avoid. Tonight’s sermon: Hezekiah’s Legacy (2 Kings 20:20-21).

[8/22/21 AM] Progression of Disobedience (Jonah 1:4-16)

[8/22/21 AM] Progression of Disobedience (Jonah 1:4-16)

August 22, 2021
Speaker: Pastor Matthew Walker
 
[Jonah 1:4-16]
Sin is a progressive disease. It begins with Christians becoming spiritually sleepy—just letting things go by without
notice. Then it progresses to insensitivity. Christians can become calloused to their sin. Finally, believers can fall into
a kind of spiritual insanity. Today’s message explains how Jonah responded to God’s attempts to get his attention.
Instead of repenting, the prophet doubled-down in his running from God.
[8/15/21 PM] Beware the Pride of Life (2 Kings 20:12-19)

[8/15/21 PM] Beware the Pride of Life (2 Kings 20:12-19)

August 15, 2021

Speaker: Pastor Matthew Walker

 

One of the aspects of worldliness that the apostle John called us to avoid is the pride of life. It is a dangerous sin because it can infect us regardless of our financial or social status. Some of the poorest Christians can struggle with the pride of life. Hezekiah, after recovering from his sickness, was enriched by God through gifts from other kings and kingdoms. But he let the accumulation of wealth go to his head. His attitude toward his possessions resulted in judgment from God. Tonight’s sermon: Beware the Pride of Life. (2 Kings 20:12-19)
