CHURCH FIGHTS - How to handle them
Welcome to Online Worship | September 6th, 2020
True tolerance does not mean ignoring sin, it means addressing it with compassion. Tolerance allows time to win people over, but it was never meant to be a complete way of life. When tolerance is overemphasized, it puts limits on love, but it should be the other way around: love puts limits on what we will tolerate.
PASTOR: "Here's why Jesus WON'T live up to your expectations"
Welcome to Online Worship | August 30th, 2020
We all place expectations on what Jesus can do for us. Peter wanted Jesus to liberate Israel; we want Jesus to heal us, improve us, bless us, etc. But the way of Jesus is the way of the cross, and as long as we try to avoid that, we will be disappointed.
CHURCH: 'Should we LET people in, or LOCK people out?'
Welcome to Online Worship | August 23rd, 2020
The church is in the business of opening doors. We are not gatekeepers, but key holders. The key is to lead people to Jesus who alone is the door to the kingdom. We can’t let people in any way they choose, but we can open the door for them if they want to enter.
PASTOR preaches on HARDEST Bible passage?!
Welcome to Online Worship | August 16th, 2020
We all carry hidden prejudices that can prove downright evil when they are exposed for what they are. Jesus is always prepared to have compassion on the people we don’t think deserve it. After all, if he doesn’t have compassion on them, he can’t have compassion on us.
How to rise above FEAR
Welcome to Online Worship | August 9th, 2020
Jesus takes hold of us despite our fear and doubt. We rise above fear when we value Jesus’ life (you are the Son of God) more than our own life (Lord save me).

Left-over pieces have meaning. God turns the pieces of our past into a part of our future. Nothing is left behind. Nothing is left unredeemed.
