• 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 Biblical Basis for ‘FLOURISH IN FAITH’

    by Shawn Merithew on February 26, 2017
    Col 2:1-3

    As Paul wrote to the church at Colossae, his heart for their well-being and spiritual health bled through every word. These verses are a prayer of sorts for their deepening love and burgeoning knowledge of Christ, who Himself is the Christian’s and the church’s greatest wealth and treasure. As Morningview stands on the cusp of a significant capitol campaign for the renovation of our building, the focus is set upon drawing near to, depending upon, and treasuring Christ.

  • The Primacy of Preaching in the Plan of Redemption

    by Shawn Merithew on February 26, 2017
    Romans 10:14-15

    John Murray has rightly noted that calling upon God’s name for salvation does not occur “in a vacuum; it occurs only in a context created by proclamation of the gospel on the part of those commissioned to proclaim it.” What Paul does here with this series of questions in verses 14 and 15 is walk us backwards from the sinner calling upon the Lord to the original cause of God sending His messengers to preach. What we are meant to understand is that the proclamation of God’s Word is God’s ordained means to draw His people to Himself in saving faith.

  • Let Us Fix Our Gaze Upon Christ

    by Shawn Merithew on January 1, 2017
    Revelation 1:9-20

    As the final book of the Bible, the book of Revelation was written to the churches to assure struggling and persecuted Christians of Christ’s faithful love, His sovereign reign, and His ultimate judgment of all wickedness. In the first chapter, as John is given His first vision, he sees the exalted Christ and hears his Lord’s concern for His churches. It is this Christ that we should set our gaze upon in every generation. Only as we walk by faith — loving Him, reverencing Him, and depending upon Him — will we know true comfort and joy in the midst of this dark world.

  • Living on Mission – Where is Our Lord?

    by Shawn Merithew on October 9, 2016
    Romans 9:1-5 (Part 3)

    When Paul considered how his fellow Israelites rejected their Messiah, he was filled with great sorrow and unceasing grief. He knew He could not redeem them himself, but in his own heart, he would willingly be separated from Christ if it would accomplish the salvation of his kinsmen. They were a privileged people, and the righteous Son of God was born among them, but because of their unbelief, Jesus did not belong to them. But their unbelief did not thwart Paul’s passion for ministry, it fueled his mission. To live life on mission is to share the burden of Christ for this world, and to reach sinners with the gospel by acting and speaking and loving and ministering and suffering like Christ until He brings us home to glory.

  • A Call to Action

    by Terrance Jones on October 2, 2016
    Nehemiah 1:1-2:5

    When we look around and see a world in chaos, we often feel overwhelmed and helpless. How do we get to a lave where we can act according to God’s will? Pastor Terence shows us that we must first be moved to inquiry, which will move us to compassion, move us to prayer, and moved to courage. It is from here than we can be rightly moved to action.

  • Christ Will Build His Church

    by Tom Hicks on July 10, 2016
    Matthew 16:13-19

    How should Christians respond to the great social tumult of today? Should we try to engage politics and social issues in a very direct way? Or is there another, more powerful way, of kingdom advance in this dark and fallen world? Listen to this sermon to find out.

  • If You Love Me, You Will Keep My Commandments

    by Guest Speaker on January 24, 2016
    John 14:15

    What did Christ mean when He taught, “If you love Me, you will keep My commandments?” What does it mean to “keep” the commandments of Christ? How should we live in light of Christ and His good law? Listen to this sermon to find out.

  • Racial Unity in Christ

    by Terrance Jones on October 4, 2015
    Ephesians 2:11-22

    Can the divide between the races be healed? This message explains that the gospel is God’s power, not only to reconcile us to Himself, but also to reconcile all believers, of every race, to one another. Listen to this sermon to hear about how Jesus Christ brings men and women from every tribe and tongue into union with Himself through faith.

  • Shepherd the Flock Well (Pastor Ordination)

    by Shawn Merithew on September 13, 2015
    1 Peter 5:1-5

    When a congregation sets apart a man to pastoral ministry, it is an occasion of great significance. It is the church agreeing to submit to the leadership of that man as he ministers in accordance with the Word, and it is the church agreeing to support the man and keep him accountable for his purity and devotion to Christ. Likewise, it is the man committing before God to take responsibility for the flock, to lead and protect them in the truth, to counsel and admonish them through trials, knowing that when he stands before the judgement seat of the Almighty, he will have to give an account for those entrusted to his care. This sermon from 1 Pet 5 is the ordination sermon for Scott Estes.
