Prostitution or Purpose of Sex

October 24, 2018 • Pastor Blake Wilson

Many Christians have forgotten the Lord’s purpose for our body. We devalue the gift of sex and the word of God. Our body is an instrument in which Jesus can get glory from. Sex, in marriage, is seen as worship to Christ.

Sexual Sin, Satan, or The Savior

October 10, 2018 • Pastor Blake Wilson

Our culture is more committed to discussing sex more than the church. We have saved people, in the church, living like they are unsaved.

If you won’t learn from the Bible about sexual sin, Jesus may take his hand off you and let satan teach you.

Spiritual Reality & Maturity

August 29, 2018 • Pastor Blake Wilson

There are four groups of identity in spiritual reality and maturity: Carnal, the inability to understand the message of Christ by his own mental ability. Fleshly, you have faith/belief, time to grow in Christ but you fail to live out the Truth of God’s word. Babe in Christ, you have faith/belief but you need time to grow in Christ. Lastly, Spiritual, you have faith/belief, you’ve had time to grow in Christ, and you live out the Truth of God’s word. Which group are you in?
