Effectively Undoing the Devil's Work

Mike Stubbs

Everyone who is a disciple of Jesus Christ is called into full time ministry. We can refuse or accept the challenge and be effective or less effective at it. The Holy Spirit has given us all we need to become effective at the work He has called us to do – to undo and destroy the work of the devil.

You Are Supernatural

May 12, 2019 • David Blanchard

In the midst of the multitude of challenges life throws at us, God has promised to show us the path of life. It is a supernatural path that opens up to a level of abundant life that is no longer normal. It is supernatural.

Kingdom Order, Charismata and Communion

2019 Spirit-filled Life Series #2 • May 5, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

There is an order Jesus Christ placed within the church that creates an atmosphere for the varied graces – charismata or gifts of the Holy Spirit – to be released. It brings us into a place of communion with Christ and one another resulting in the full-benefits or abundant life Jesus Christ paid for us to richly enjoy. (John 10:10; Psalm 103:2-6)

Desiring the Gifts of the Holy Spirit

2019 Spirit-filled Life Series #1 • April 28, 2019 • Adam Welty

The gifts of the Holy Spirit are important in the lives of every believer. Starting with the emphasis that Jesus placed on telling His disciples about their need for the Holy Spirit once He was gone, we continue looking through the New Testament at the important role the Holy Spirit plays in helping believers accomplish the purposes of God, becoming more like Jesus, and becoming a healthy Body that helps other people.

The Resurrection of Christ and Our New Life

Easter 2019 • April 21, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

The Bible describes those who choose not to embrace Jesus Christ as dead in their sins. Those who embrace Jesus Christ now have life. How does that life affect you? Are you waiting for the afterlife or are you expecting the fruit of life to start working now? The Bible teaches its affects start now if embraced by faith.

Why Did Jesus Have to Die?

Good Friday • April 19, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

It's one of the great questions of all time. Why did Jesus have to die? Wasn't there another way? It is actually important that it all went down the way it did and understanding the reason has eternal and temporal implications for us.

The Discipline of Worship

April 14, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

Worship is one of the most powerful weapons there is to achieve a breakout victory over the enemy. Mature believers are intrinsically worshipers and achieve a level of consistent victory and abundantly life desirable by others.

The Discipline of Scripture Reading

March 31, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

The Bible is our life manual. No understanding of it, partial understanding of it or a misguided understanding of it can be detrimental to our quality of life. But if we intentionally set out to understand the scriptures, life can be set upon a path that is both beautiful and fulfilling. There is no other book that carries the weight, authority and impact of the Judeo-Christian scriptures. Without the Bible we are left to develop our own misguided personal philosophy of life that simply anesthetizes our slow death.

The Discipline of Quiet

March 31, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

Life can become a rat race full of endless, self-defeating, pointless pursuits. We are running harder all the time to get the ever-so-elusive reward. We surround ourselves with ever-increasing noise, so we never hear the little voice that says, “Stop it!” Can you embrace the faith to believe God rewards your rest?

The Testimony of Missionary Jim Birch

March 24, 2019 • Missionary Jim Birch

Listen to the inspiring testimony and teaching of a man from Ponca City, OK, who found his way to Peru with his wife to serve the Lord!

The Discipline of Self-Denial

March 17, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

Abstinence is the discipline of denying yourself something in order to reposition Jesus Christ in your life. This will begin to train yourself to be more responsive to God and less responsive to the temporal things of the flesh. Denying yourself something during Lent will give you something additional to celebrate on Resurrection Sunday; not only has Jesus Christ risen from the dead, but His life caused something new to rise up in you.

A Distinctively Different Life

March 10, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

Jesus Christ gave His believers a new identity. Embracing this new identity is the foundation for the new, abundant life in Him. Holding to an old identity handicaps our spiritual development and keeps us from God's best for our lives. Learn some key ways many still hold the old identity hindering themselves and ways we can move forward by embracing the identity He has given us.

Provision for Your Whole Household

Family and Life #2 • February 24, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

God created man and woman to live in a place of beauty and provision. The curse reversed all that and made life a terrible fruitless labor. Jesus Christ’s plan of redemption is also to restore that Father-Provider relationships we were created to enjoy. To build our house on solid financial footing, it must be built upon the Rock. Jesus Christ is the Rock.

Communicating More Effectively

Family and Life #1 • February 17, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

Communication is a key to healthy relationships. We can over-and-under communicate in unhealthy manners. As we mature, we learn to communicate more effectively, and our relational health grows with our emotional intelligence. This makes for more fulfilling friendships, marriages, family relationships and careers.

A Measure of Faith

The Hard Sayings of Jesus #5 • February 10, 2019 • Adam Welty

Jesus Christ was always challenging beliefs, convictions and assumptions of what the culture believed about itself, other people groups and resources. His mission was to bring the kingdom of God and its truth to earth and to teach others to do the same. Our understanding of faith determines the impact it'll have on us and through us.

Extending the Grace of Forgiveness

The Hard Sayings of Jesus #4 • February 3, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

Sometimes it seems like Jesus Christ has given us more authority than we are comfortable with. Until we embrace the full authority of our position in Christ, we are handicapped in our mission. One of the responsibilities is the proclamation of forgiveness. Have you embraced it? Do you understand it? Or is John 20:21-23 a hard saying for you?

What Is Your Testimony?

January 27, 2019 • Tolbert Livingston

We all experience tests, trials and tribulations. When our testimony lines up with the testimony of the Lord, we can declare the victory before the battle is complete. Our faith in the predetermined truth of Jesus Christ will predetermine our outcomes. Then we can proclaim in agreement with the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians that Jesus always gives us the victory!

Eyes, Hands and Other Body Parts

The Hard Sayings of Jesus #3 • January 20, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

Christians often beat themselves up with scripture which was recorded to build us up. Errant teaching or understanding can make a relationship with God that was created to be beautiful to become burdensome and painfilled. Today we are going to examine some particularly harsh-sounding scriptures to see if we can get a more edifying understanding of them.

To Live by the Sword or Not

The Hard Sayings of Jesus #2 • January 13, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

The Bible says that those who live by the sword will perish by the sword. I believe this is among the most misrepresented scriptures in the Bible. We are not called to be pacifists or warmongers, peace-at-any-cost type individuals or live for the conflict. There is a truth in-between.

Love Fulfills the Law

The Hard Sayings of Jesus #1 • January 6, 2019 • Mike Stubbs

Christians often struggle in their relationship with Old Testament Law. And when they hear Jesus’s explanation of what fulfilling the Law really looks like, they often feel it can’t be that simple. Can soul-saving appeasement of God Almighty be as simple as loving Him and loving people?

Your Response Matters

December 30, 2018 • Corey Livingston

Sometimes things don't work out for us. That's never the end of the story. We each get to choose our responses to our situations. The right response can turn a closed door to an open door, and a blessing withheld into a blessing given.
