The Moment of Faith

Faith is adhering to a belief. You will act consistently in what you believe. These beliefs come from the heart. Each person must receive faith and believe. That will happen differently for different people. Some believe by hearing, while others believe by sight. Some won't believe until they touch. What will it take for you to believe?

Turning the Tables

People set up places to exchange Roman money for the Temple money in the Temple. They sold the animals necessary for the sacrifice. It was the most practical thing to do. However, Jesus throws them out of the Temple because worship isn't practical.

The Righteous Will Live by Faith

How much righteousness do you have? Do you think you have 50% or 75% of what is needed to have an unhindered relationship with God? So, you only need 25% to 50% of His righteousness, right? No, absolutely not! This message states clearly that your righteousness and God's righteousness are totally different. You must abandon your righteousness to have His righteousness. Then, you will live by faith.

The Gospel Power

Many Christians trust in Christ but fail to realize the power in that decision. They set the gospel aside rather than access its power in their lives. It's like riding in coach when you could fly first class.

The Gospel Offense

Those who regularly share the gospel, whether it be with family, friends or co-workers, will be judged poorly some of the times. The gospel is offensive to many of those who want to believe they are going to heaven without it. This message tells why.

The Gospel Debt

What if God has great plan for you but you don't do what God wants you to do, do you still get His great plans? We are not our own. We may be able to choose what we want to do but those who know Jesus Christ as Savior owe a great debt that is a joy to be paid. Paying that debt puts us right on track in receiving God's great plans.

Faithful Failure

Sometimes you can do everything right; you can do all the Lord has asked of you, and you will fail. Is this because God isn't able to help you succeed? Does God quit caring some times? How can you fail when you have done everything right? This message helps answer these questions.

Fellowship

Fellowship is more than fried chicken and potato salad. It is the meeting of spirits between Christians. It has a lot to do with the Christians mutual growth in the faith. This message tells you how you can have it.

Prayers

The most godly person can pray the most godly prayer and God can still say "no." Why is that?

Influence

A good marketing person might tell Jesus that He didn't play His cards very well. After all, look at all the real miracles He could do. Why didn't Jesus tell the disciples to get a crowd together after he fed the 5000. He could tell them to tell the crowd to come back for a really good meal the next day. Then, the disciples could gather some really sick people and maybe a couple of people who had recently died. After the disciples had the crowd chanting and really rocking out, Jesus could walk across the Sea of Galilee for His entrance. Then, saying, "Behold!" with the sound of thunder He could raise the dead, heal a few people and start producing fried chicken and potato salad to feed the whole crowd. Just think of His popularity, future crowds and the offerings He could gather! But He didn't do that. Why?

Greeting

The difference between a sinner and a saint is the Savior. Paul has some choice things to call believers. We are every thing he has called us.

What's in a Name?

Of all the names that Jesus is given, the Name above all names has the greatest impact. Jesus emptied Himself to become a human who would suffer, die and resurrect. He was glorified by His Father. This name leads us to understand what who we are and what we need to do. This takes giving it all over to the Lord. Are you ready for that?
