The Secret Place of God's Provision
March 22, 2020 • Mike Stubbs
There is a place of safety, security and provision for those who trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. We will all be tested and most of us currently are. God's faithfulness in the past, the assurance of His promises and our undying faith in Him is enough to see us through any challenge and overcome fear.
It Takes a Village to Make a Church
2020 Romans Series #8 • March 15, 2020 • Mike Stubbs
There is a lot of misunderstanding about the church is. It is not a building, but a body consisting of all believers worldwide and those who departed this life. Those who remain meet locally in smaller groups in cathedrals, churches, buildings, shops, homes, huts and out in the open all over the world. And the Bible, the Holy Spirit and the God-influenced motivational gifts within us help to shape us into a Christ-reflective image of authority, power and love on the earth to heal all who are oppressed by the devil.
Contending for Your Family's Salvation
2020 Romans Series #7 • March 8, 2020 • Mike Stubbs
Some of you are experiencing anxiety over the spiritual condition of your family members. Anxiety is not faith so there must be an adjustment that needs to take place that assures us of God’s plan for the family, puts us in agreement and gives us a sense of peace as well. Today we are going to look at God’s faithfulness to the family of Israel and see how that pertains to our families as well.
Christ's Love Compels Us
March 1, 2020 • Brandon Little
We are all called, as believers, to work for God in the ministry of reconciliation. Working for God's kingdom requires power that is not from us. God's love is our primary motivator to do the Lord's work in light of His return. It is a better life God empowers each of us to live.
Watch Your Mouth
2020 Romans Series #6 • February 23, 2020 • Mike Stubbs
Lose lips sink ships. I have seen friendships and careers end due to unregulated words. I have even seen the quality of people’s lives suffer who could not control their mouths. What difference does it make? What comes out of our mouths tells on our hearts, affects our temporal lives and can alter our eternity.
Don't Ignore the Helper
2020 Romans Series #5 • February 16, 2020 • Mike Stubbs
Our journey from here to eternity is a high mountain to climb. If we set out on our own, we can suffer and get lost along the way. But if we allow the Holy Spirit to be our guide, He can prepare the route in advance, fix support in place for the difficult places, and make sure you have the necessary tools and supplies to make the climb. He is alike a skillful, divine Sherpa guide for life. We begin by realizing we’re now free from the old sinful lifestyle.
Peace, Privilege and Progress
2020 Romans Series #4 • February 9, 2020 • Mike Stubbs
There is a reason the psalmist commanded believers to not forget any of God’s benefits (Psm. 103:1-2). It is because believers often are ignorant of, don’t believe in or don’t live up to the benefits secured through Jesus Christ. Sometimes it is hard to tell a believer from a non-believer even though the Bible teaches us it should be the difference between night and day. Today we are going to learn more about the position of privilege believers occupy in Christ.
Getting to Abundant Life
2020 Romans Series #3 • February 2, 2020 • Mike Stubbs
There is a life that is full and abundant. It is called “zoe” or “a God-kind of life”. Everyone wants it but relatively few know how to attain it. The Apostle Paul taught extensively about it deriving much of his understanding from the life of Abraham. When the wages of his sin were removed, it opened him up to a new life described as a gift from God.
Journey Through the Wall
January 26, 2020 • Pastor Joel Liew
Sometimes we run into a wall between where we are at and where we want to go in our walk with the Lord. How do you get past that wall? Learn, from Malaysian pastor Joel Liew, what it means to relinquish what is holding you back from crossing over into your Promised Land.
January 19, 2020 • Rev. Tolbert Livingston
Transition is hard and scary at times. But just as Joshua transitioned from being a follower of his leader to becoming the leader, we are also called to move forward. Holding on to past versions of ourselves will just hinder the better God has planned. This message will encourage you to embrace transition, understand loss and grow in maturity.
Can You Save Yourself?
2020 Romans Series #2 • January 12, 2020 • Mike Stubbs
Something in the heart of humanity tells us eternity is real, we will be accountable for our life and we need to prepare. Without someone explaining the way to a safe harbor in the afterlife, we are relegated to inventing our own self-soothing solutions and countless religions that don’t work. The Apostle Paul searched the scriptures and gave us answers to life’s most pressing questions.
2020 Romans Series #1 • January 5, 2020 • Mike Stubbs
We are starting a series on the Letter to the Romans written by the Apostle Paul. We are here dealing with writing of massive substance, presenting a formidable intellectual challenge even to seasoned believers while offering a breathtaking theological and spiritual vision for the church. In our current cultural war, this epistle becomes increasingly relevant. It is important for us to enter this new and challenging decade sharp, alert and unashamed of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Are You Feeling Bad Yet?
December 29, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
This is the time of year people start thinking about their New Year resolution. It is usually the result of feeling bad about weight gain, lack of exercise, failure of personal discipline or spiritual standards and objectives we fall short of. Although New Year resolutions are not bad, I want to talk to you about some truth that will take the sting out of your self-imposed condemnation and empower you to hit a little closer to the mark next time you evaluate yourself.
Are You Covered by the Blood?
Christmas Eve 2019 • December 24, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
There is an important question to ask after the gift-giving is done if Jesus Christ is to be properly considered. Is He of any benefit to you? Only if you are covered in His blood, spiritually speaking, can you be viewed as righteous and depart the captivity of sin.
Advent: A Season of Love
December 22, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
God’s love is not always easy to understand because we tend to view it through the lens of our human understanding. What if your understanding isn’t accurate? When we gain heavenly perspective through Jesus Christ, we begin to understand a new kind of love that empowers us in a new way to love those who are particularly challenging to us.
Advent: A Season of Joy
December 15, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
Revival hit Israel when they turned to the scriptures at their leaders’ lead. It was characterized by vocal and physical acts of worship, demonstrative prayer with and audible responses to their spiritual leadership. They were left with a choice to dwell on their awareness of sin or to rejoice in the work of God in their hearts. Hopefully you will choose to rejoice with me today.
Advent: A Season of Preparation and Peace
December 8, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
Everyone wants peace whether it is just enough to sleep at night or for wars to end. No matter large or small issues, there is one who now and ultimately offers peace and will one day establish it everywhere forever. The first step in changing the world is to change ourselves and a good start is embracing God’s peace through His Son Jesus Christ.
Advent: A Season of Hope
Advent 1 • December 1, 2019 • Adam Welty
This message, the first in a series about the season of Advent, sets the tone for the Christmas season by emphasizing the hope that Christ brought to earth over 2000 years ago and the hope that He continues to inspire in the hearts of humanity today.
Gratitude: A Heart Realignment
Thanksgiving & Pre-Advent Message • November 24, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
A large part of discipleship 101 is gratitude – learning to take our eyes of the deficits and to focus on the benefits – what we already have. It ignites the power of God in our lives in a dynamic way closing the door to the curse and opening another to the abundant life. Gratitude is a mind-transforming faith-focus that revolutionizes our lives and is only a decision away.
November 17, 2019 • Mike Stubbs
The Kingdom of God has been a priority from before it was prophesied in the writings of Moses. It was a priority to the patriarchs of the faith, to our Messiah Jesus Christ, to the New Testament writers and historical figures in church history. It should be a priority to us and carries great reward with it.
