The Gospel Impacted Workplace (Ephesians 6:5-9)

Grace makes us the servants of God while still we are the servants of men: it enables us to do the business of heaven while we are attending to the business of earth: it sanctifies the common duties of life by showing us how to perform them in the light of heaven. – Charles Spurgeon

Below is preview footage of our new video equipment set up. We plan to go live and film consistently starting December 2. The sermon begins around 26:44

The Gospel-Impacted Home (Ephesians 6:1-4)

When a young mother cannot bring herself to discipline her child, when a father will not supply the time or attention to discipline, when the latest childrearing book has made us question whether we should just ignore some improper outburst from a child—in each of these moments we need the straightforward simplicity this Scripture supplies. If we love our children too much to require them to do what is right, then we have not really loved them enough. - Bryan Chapell

When The Holy Spirit Fills The Church (Ephesians 5:15-21)

Such are the wholesome results of the fullness of the Holy Spirit. They all concern our relationships. If we are filled with the Spirit, we shall be harmoniously related both to God (worshipping him with joy and thanksgiving) and to each other (speaking and submitting to one another). In brief, Spirit-filled believers love God and love each other, which is hardly surprising since the first fruit of the Spirit is love. – John Stott

Honoring God In A Sex-Crazed World (Ephesians 5:1-14)

But the reason why Christians should dislike and avoid vulgarity is not because we have a warped view of sex, and are either ashamed or afraid of it, but because we have a high and holy view of it as being in its right place God’s good gift, which we do not want to see cheapened. All God’s gifts, including sex, are subjects for thanksgiving, rather than for joking. To joke about them is bound to degrade them; to thank God for them is the way to preserve their worth as the blessings of a loving Creator. – John Stott

We had a malfunction this week with the sermon recording computer. We apologize for the audio quality!

Get Busy Living (Ephesians 4:1-7)

United in him, we share the same testimony: one Lord, one faith, one baptism. These are the terms that characterize the testimony of all who are truly Christ’s. We testify that Jesus is Lord; we testify that faith in his work on our behalf is our only means of salvation; and, by our baptism, we testify that we are cleansed of sin and united to him by his grace alone. – Bryan Chapell

Grace Never Guilts!

Do you know the difference between God's empowering grace and Satan's immobilizing guilt? Its's the difference between life and death.

God’s grace does not come to people who morally out perform others, but to those who admit their failure to perform and who acknowledge their need for a savior.” – Tim Keller

Absent Here Present There

In a classic "only once-in-awhile" sermon, Greg presents a unique view of what happens when the believer dies. His position is an example of something Christians have the freedom to intramurally debate. The facts are unchanged- when a believer dies he is in the presence of Jesus instantaneously! Have fun thinking through this unusual message!

Jesus Our Future

The final message of the series- Revelation showcases the cosmic, majestic, all-powerful and all loving Savior. Jesus is our future!

Moses could mediate the law; Mohammed could brandish a sword; Buddha could give personal counsel; Confucius could offer wise sayings but none of these men was qualified to offer atonement for the sins of the world. Christ alone is worthy of unlimited devotion and service.  He alone is able to redeem.  He alone is worthy of worship. – R.C. Sproul

Jesus Our Priest

The portrait of Jesus that emerges from the rich letter to the Hebrews is one of priest. A priest stands in the gap between sinful man and Holy God. And unlike every earthly priest who came before, Jesus does what none of them could do!

His was a life of continual bodily, mental, and spiritual labour; his whole man was exercised. But now he rests; there is no more toil for him now; here is no more sweat of blood, no more the weary foot, no more the aching head. No more has he to do. He sits still,and the very fact that he sits still, and rests, and is at ease, proves that his work is finished and is complete. – Charles Spurgeon

Jesus Our Teacher

Jesus emerges as the morally transformative teacher in the book of James. The once unbelieving half-brother of Jesus (see John 7:5), James came to see that Jesus was the supreme teacher, the only one who can show us how to live a transformed life.

He never entered a classroom as we know a classroom. He never had a degree as we understand an educational degree, yet all the world was his classroom. No degreed teacher did anything greater than what Jesus Christ did. He was truly and absolutely the Master Teacher and the greatest teacher of all time. – Ray Pritchard

Jesus Our Hope

There are constant references in 1 and 2 Thessalonians to the return of Christ- history's most amazing event. But what makes the event amazing- as always- is that Jesus is at the center of it. He is our hope in this life and the next!

The apostolic church thought more about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ than about death and heaven. The early Christians were looking, not for a cleft in the ground called a grave but for a cleavage in the sky called Glory. – Alexander Maclaren
