God Our Everyday Savior
September 19, 2021 • Pastor Mike Stubbs
All believers in the Lord Jesus Christ acknowledge that He is Savior. But many hold it as a title that is only pertinent at death. But what if He is not only our Savior at death but in this life as well? That would mean we can take our daily challenges to Him to save us. There is no problem too big or too small for Jesus Christ who wants to save us today and tomorrow as well. We just need to call upon the Lord. I want to challenge you today to embrace Jesus Christ as your everyday Savior.
The Power of Words
September 12, 2021 • Pastor Mike Stubbs
What we believe lies deeply seated in our inner-being. Our words reveal those beliefs and produce good or bad outcomes. One of the simplest ways to change your life for the better is to change your talk. From Genesis creation spoken out in words by God, to God’s promises spoken over the patriarchs, words are meant to bring forth the abundant life of God and not to kill, steal and destroy. Change your words and you will change your life.

The Mind of Christ
August 29, 2021 • Pastor Adam Welty
Our faith is either built up or torn down by how we think. Being aware of our thoughts and how they operate helps us to embrace the good things of God. As we begin to identify the old mindset and replace it with the new mindset in Christ, we are better equipped to embrace the blessings of being in Christ.
Winning the Battle of the Mind
August 22, 2021 • Mike Stubbs
The life of faith greatly involves a spiritual battle with dark forces that manipulate the mind through lies and half-truths to trigger wrong responses for the purpose of disrupting the abundant life of Christ. If a believer believes a lie, he chooses an unwise action, so the primary weapon of the enemy is mental deception. The more religious he makes the deception, the more effective it is. This means our initiation into spiritual warfare is to understand the dynamic of the assault and to engage and win the battle of the mind.

Three Truths That Will Change Your Life
August 8, 2021 • Mike Stubbs • Matthew 6:9–13
Everyone from conspiracy theorists and catastrophists to political pundits and social media influencers want to convince you their perception of reality is the one true angle. But real truth is absolute from an unchanging original source called God who has revealed it in the Holy Scriptures. It has proven itself out over time, outlived all critics and continues to destroy gated strongholds of Satan with it’s powerful advance. Today we are going to talk about three of God’s most powerful truths.
The Temptation Factor
August 1, 2021 • Pastor Mike Stubbs • Matthew 6:9–13
Today we are going to talk about that portion of the Lord’s prayer dealing with temptation. We will talk about what temptation really is, what is the difference between it and sin, and how the believer in Jesus Christ can deal with it victoriously.
The Grace of Forgiveness
July 25, 2021 • Mike Stubbs
As children we resist taking medicine because the taste can be off putting. Children are not willing to experience short-term displeasure for long-term benefit because they are shortsighted. But as adults, we are no longer shortsighted and understand the benefits of medicine even if it is distasteful at first. God’s has medicine for us called forgiveness that is good for us physically, emotionally, and spiritually even if it seems like a bitter pill at first.
The Father's Heart
July 18, 2021 • Pastor Adam Welty
Understanding the heart of God is the foundation for our relationship with our heavenly Father; it is the base from which we develop faith to see the supernatural hand of God move on our behalf! Without a godly perspective of His heart towards each of us, we misunderstand God’s love and character, both for us and for others. And, when we misunderstand God’s character we miss out on much of the benefit of our positions as sons and daughters of God! The Story of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32) serves as an illustration of this concept as we learn of two men who misunderstood the heart of their father.

Living Secure in God's Provision
July 4, 2021 • Mike Stubbs
Jesus instructed us to pray to Father God for our daily needs. Our daily needs include every single thing we need every day – which may change each day. So, if Jesus Christ instructed us to take our natural needs to the supernatural realm, we should not be surprised to receive supernatural answers.
Caling Down the Will of God
June 27, 2021 • Mike Stubbs
We live in a broken world that we have been appointed to for a season as ambassadors of Christ to redeem and restore humanity by sharing the message of reconciliation with God. Reconciliation opens the door for healing and wholeness through the manifestation of the will of God into these broken circumstances. This requires ambassadors who take their call seriously, have the eyes of Christ, process through the heart of God and be resolute about calling down blessings into broken places.
Changing to a Kingdom Mindset
June 20, 2021 • Mike Stubbs
What are you aligned with? What have you vowed your allegiance to? Maybe not with putting your hand over your heart and repeating a memorized pledge but by embracing a politically correct worldview that has actually affected your decision-making and all your relationships? Yet, consider there is only one thing the follower of the Lord Jesus Christ is called to be sold out to above all else and it affects everything – the kingdom of God.
The Power of the Name of God
June 13, 2021 • Mike Stubbs
It is common to hear people misuse the name of God. It can be nonchalance, foolishness or wickedness. In any case, it is based on ignorance of the position of esteem this name holds. A believer who understands and effectively uses the name of God can do great things for the kingdom and wields a weapon darkness is not equipped to advance or stand against.
The Power of the Good Father Concept
June 6, 2021 • Mike Stubbs
Important to emotionally healthy spirituality is the concept of fatherhood we embrace. Not only is this concept that starts with Father God taught throughout the scriptures, but Jesus taught an approach to God and modeled a relationship with God that is centered around the loving father belief. When we grow in this, we develop more emotionally healthy relationships as a result. The ultimate goal is for us to embrace God as Father and to model His love to those in our spheres of influence.
Prayer Strategies That Prevail
May 23, 2021 • Mike Stubbs
Some people seem to pray a lot but not much seems to happen. Others don’t put on much of an outward show but seem to have a lot of breakthroughs. Every believer will experience warfare on a spiritual level, but one differentiating factor will be the outcomes. There are a few things that can change your outcomes to the plus side more frequently if understood and that is what we are sharing in this lesson.
The Ministry Gifts
May 16, 2021 • Mike Stubbs
Healthy believers are found in healthy gatherings often referred to as the local church in communities worldwide. Paul said the body of Christ, broken down into localized fellowships, has what we need to grow spiritually so we should not search outside the community of Christ. The Bible gives us insight into influencers within the local church called the ministry gifts who have a vital role in partnering with us for spiritual maturity.
The Importance of Varied Motivational Gifts
May 9, 2021 • Mike Stubbs
It is possible to be so convinced that our understanding of the truth is the whole truth that we are willing to end relationships over it. What we don’t realize is that no one disciple of Jesus Christ has grasped the whole truth, and we are in need of others in the body of Christ with differing perspectives to come to a more complete understanding of Christ’s compassion. This is where an understanding of your motivational gift and those of others will help each of us become better.
The Fruit of the Holy Spirit
May 2, 2021
Love is easy to say and harder to do outside of the grace of God. Making the choice to love – over and over again – will rewire us to the original blueprint Jesus Christ explained to us. We try so hard to do all the petty detail of what we perceive would be pleasing to God when all He asks in the New Covenant are two things – Love God and love people. And when we mix a little choice, effort, and grace, we become radically different and it’s a beautiful thing.
