• Christ, the Perfect Servant

    by Shawn Merithew on August 13, 2017
    John 13:3-17, Acts 6:1-7

    This sermon is the Deacon Ordination sermon for Eric Bertolotti, Brandon Granger, Randy Mallard, and Jason Pratt. As we consider the office of Deacon, we look to Christ as the perfect example of how to serve. Following His example, we willingly take up the lowliest of positions in order to see Him glorified in the church. As Deacons serve with this heart, practical needs are met, and the ministry of the Word and prayer continues unimpeded.

  • Renewed by the Table

    by Shawn Merithew on August 13, 2017
    Rom 12:1-2, 1 Cor 10:16-18,11:23-26

    This sermon is the second of four sermons exploring the role of the public means of grace in the renewal of the Christian mind. This doctrinal sermon addresses the nature and place of the ordinances in Christian worship, focusing mostly upon the ordinances of communion. Communion is a means of grace as God uses the partaking of the elements to remind us of and nourish us with the truths of Christ’s sacrifice, the blessings of our salvation, and the hope set before us.

  • Transformed by the Word

    by Shawn Merithew on August 6, 2017
    Rom 12:1-2, 2 Tim 3:14-4:5

    This sermon is the first of four sermons in a mini-series on the public means of grace. Romans 12:1-2 teaches Christians that we are to offer ourselves up to God as living and holy sacrifices. We are to no longer be conformed to this world. Instead, we are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, thereby proving out the good, acceptable, and perfect will of God. The Word of God is , of course, central to this process of transformation, because the whole of Scripture testifies to the Person and Power of Christ.

  • Beware of Drifting in Your Faith

    by Guest Speaker on July 9, 2017
    Hebrews 12:1-2

    Lee Dymond is the Baptist Campus Ministries Pastor at Auburn University Montgomery. In this Sunday evening sermon, he expounds Hebrews 12:1-2 to encourage believers to beware of drifting away in their walks of faith. To keep from drifting, we must lay aside all sin and encumbrance, and set our gaze upon Christ who is the author and perfecter of our faith.

  • The Great Deeps of God

    by Shawn Merithew on July 9, 2017
    Romans 11:33-36

    The goal and natural result of all theology is doxology — In other words, the study of doctrine naturally leads to praise and worship and exaltation of the glory and splendor of God. Some have wrongly interpreted these verses to be Paul’s way of waving the white flag of mystery over the doctrines of election and divine sovereignty. A false view! God, through Paul, has clearly taught us the doctrine of sovereign election for all who will give it an honest reading. And having pulled back the veil to show us the sovereign purpose of God in exalting His mercy, even through the existence of sin, Paul is now marveling over what these doctrines have revealed about the eternal wisdom and transcendence of Almighty God!

  • Christ, Our Risen and Exalted Head

    by Shawn Merithew on April 16, 2017
    Eph 1:15-23

    As Paul wraps up his opening comments to the church at Ephesus, he offers a prayer for them that is centered around the theme of God’s power displayed in the resurrection and exaltation of Christ. As we ‘know’ God and grow in our understanding of His incredible power, we will deepen in the hope of our calling, realize the riches of the glory of our inheritance, and embrace the surpassing greatness of His power.

  • Rivers of Living Water

    by Jon English Lee on March 26, 2017
    John 7:37-39

    Jesus promises refreshment to the thirsty that will come to Him and drink. Even more than that, Jesus promises rivers of living water from the hearts of believers. This He said about the Holy Spirit, who is examined in detail in this sermon.

  • Love

    by Shawn Merithew on March 19, 2017
    2 Cor 5:14-15

    “Love” is definitely one of our favorite subjects as Christians. But it is also one of the most misunderstood subjects in the church because our idea of love is typically rooted in worldly wisdom rather than in scriptural truth. Biblically speaking, true love is rooted in death. Christ’s death demonstrated God’s love and secured our love. So the questions we answer through this sermon are, “What does it mean for us to be ‘constrained’ by love?” and “What does the death of Christ mean for our life and ministry?”

  • Proclaim

    by Shawn Merithew on March 12, 2017
    2 Cor 4:5-7

    The Corinthians church frequently put Paul in the position of having to defend his apostleship and ministry. In this text, Paul is specifically defending His preaching ministry, but through his words, God gives us a magnificent picture of the church’s role in lifting up Christ. As we proclaim Christ, the church is edified, the world is judged guilty of sin, and the lost are saved as God sovereignly gives the light of the knowledge of His glory in the face of Christ.

  • Believe, Confess, and Be Saved

    by Shawn Merithew on February 19, 2017
    Romans 10:9-13

    Two of the verses from this text in Romans 10 have appeared in virtually every biblical gospel tract over the last half century. They describe how saving faith is appropriated in the concert of heart belief and verbal confession. In this sermon, we explore the nature, the expression, and the result of true faith, as well as God’s confirmation of His promise that He abounds in riches for all who call upon Him in faith.
