Two Realms in Opposition

Dustin Renz

July 25, 2021

In Scripture we read about two realms, each with their own authorities, motivations, and purposes. One is the kingdom of God and the other, the kingdom of this world. As members of God’s kingdom, we have been called to put off the ways of this world, but often its influence can subtly creep into our actions and thoughts without our awareness. So in this message, Dustin Renz helps us draw the boundary lines between these two realms more clearly. He also challenges us to ask the Lord to search us and show us where we may be giving the world and the devil a foothold in our lives.

When You Bury Your Sin

October 17, 2021

With the victory at Jericho behind them and the promise of God’s future protection, the people of Israel must have felt like an unstoppable force. It must have been a shock then when they suffered a humiliating defeat by the citizens of Ai. The people of Israel would soon find out that the sin of one man, Achan, had caused this terrible loss. And in this message, Dustin Renz parallels Achan’s story of disobedience to our own lives, how hiding our sin will bring spiritual death and how walking in the light will bring about victory.

Absolute Necessity

October 3, 2021

Deception and licentiousness are rapidly growing stronger in our culture. And while there is still a degree of peace and freedom, the Bible has warned us of greater peril to come. This time is rapidly approaching, and to endure it, we will need to love the truth and be willing to stand for Christ. But as Glenn Meldrum points out in this message, we must learn to rely on God for strength in our daily life right now, or we will not be able to stand when the battle intensifies.

Repentance: The Core Message of Jesus Christ

September 26, 2021

The American church has lost its way. Statistics about divorce, promiscuity, pornography usage, and so on reflect little difference from the unchurched. How did we get here? We have watered down the teachings of Jesus Christ to the point that they are nearly unrecognizable from what He actually taught. His core message was repentance: that people have been corrupted by sin and selfishness and must undergo a radical transformation. This flavor is unmistakable throughout all of His teachings. In this passionate message, Pastor Steve Gallagher brings to light the core of Christ's message.
