• Faith and Works

    by Terrance Jones on October 1, 2017
    James 1

    How far does faith go without works? The answer, not very far. The overflow of faith is obedience to the commandments of God. As believers, we are called to thrive in good works, to love our neighbors, to fight sin, and to pray. Most importantly, we are called to love the very One who created us and redeemed us. The book of James shows us how genuine faith is display in a love of God’s commands.

  • Secure in Christ

    by Reid Ward on September 17, 2017
    The Gospel of John

    In this passage see a setting and question that provokes Jesus to one of the clearest proclamations of His deity, and of our safety in Him. Therefore, we first learn that the Bible teaches that the Father, the Son, and the Spirit are the union of three distinct persons, who eternally exists in one divine essence, one nature and character; each person being fully God and the being of each Person is equal to the whole being of God. Then, we learn that the great doctrine of the perseverance, or eternal security, of the true believer means that those who are truly in Christ can neither totally nor finally fall from a state of grace.

  • Who Are the Sons of God?

    by Shawn Merithew on May 22, 2016
    Romans 8:12-14

    As we come to Romans 8:12, Paul moves from instruction to exhortation, giving us one of the most essential evidences of those who are truly sons of God: killing sin. The critical practice of killing sin in your heart is evidence of the fact that you have been justified in Christ alone. So walking in Christ means that you are by nature someone who is making war on your remaining sin, thereby manifesting that you are indeed in the Spirit and of the sons of God.

  • Answering Cheap Grace

    by Tom Hicks on March 22, 2015
    2 Peter 1:1-11

    Is it possible to be a Christian and live a life of sin? Does salvation by grace mean that we can live as we please and still go to heaven? Are good works necessary for final salvation? Many today teach that grace is cheap, that a one-time decision, experience, or prayer, is all that is required for salvation and eternal life. This sermon looks at what the Scriptures say is necessary for assurance of salvation and eternal life.

  • A Time to Mourn

    by Shawn Merithew on December 7, 2014
    Exodus 33:1-11

    As we begin chapter 33 of Exodus, we find ourselves still in the aftermath of Israel’s sin with the golden calf. God affirms that He will continue to be faithful to the promises he made in the covenant with Israel’s patriarchs, but He also tells Israel that He will not be going up with them in their midst. For now, He will be outside the camp. This narrative leads to some challenging questions for God’s people today, the greatest of which is “Have we become comfortable being distant from God?”

    by Shawn Merithew on November 9, 2014

    After interceding for Israel before God, Moses comes down from Mt. Sinai to find the Israelites engaged in a festival of idolatrous debauchery.

Through this text, we are taught much about how we are to deal with our own idols as well as how NOT to respond to biblical confrontation.

    by Tom Hicks on October 26, 2014
    Genesis 32:22-32

    One of the most interesting conversion stories in the Bible is found in the life of Jacob. In this sermon, we explore how God isolated Jacob, wrestled with Jacob as an individual, and brought him to personal conversion, which left him permanently changed.
