The King and His People
A Study in Matthew
How the Injustice Christ Suffered Makes us Just
July 12, 2020 • Pastor Steve Gibson
Before His death, Christ appeared before Pilate and demonstrated complete and utter trust in His heavenly Father, in spite of the agony and torment to come. Do we trust God enough to be like Jesus in times of suffering?
Beware of Counterfeit Christianity
July 5, 2020 • Pastor Michael Swindell
Last Sunday warned true believers to humble themselves, this week’s message is primarily a warning to make sure we are in fact true believers. We never want to end up like Judas at the end—remorseful, but not repentant and full of despair. How do we confirm our calling and election?
Beware of Spiritual Pride
June 28, 2020 • Pastor Michael Swindell
This Sunday we will remember perhaps the greatest denial in the history of the Church. It's Peter’s unique story, but in reality we all face situations similar to Peter at some point or another, thinking we are spiritually stronger than we really are. Here we’ll notice certain situations we all have faced and will likely all face again.
A Father's Finest Hour
June 21, 2020 • Pastor Steve Gibson
Men, we know you face a lot of pressure from all different sides to be the perfect husband, the perfect father, the perfect employee, and more. In today's message, we'll see how God has uniquely designed and equipped you to be able to live up to His calling on your life.
A Heart of Worship & A Heart of Betrayal
June 14, 2020 • Pastor Steve Gibson
Two very different hearts toward Christ show themselves in a few short verses. As Jesus is being anointed by a heart of worship, a disillusioned heart prepares to betray Him. Where is your heart? How does one become one or the other?
The Second Coming of Christ
May 31, 2020 • Pastor Steve Gibson
Even though we can't know the exact hour, we can be ready for Christ's return. We'll look at two parables in Matthew 25 that demonstrate how we can be ready for judgment without any fear, secure in the salvation of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit who lives in us. Will you be ready?
May 17, 2020 • Pastor Steve Gibson
Persecution. Deception. Disease, famine and destruction. These aren't new things in this world, but it's hard to dispute that the things Jesus foretold would happen leading up to His coming, are still happening in our world—and arguably to a much greater extent than ever before. As Christians, how can we stand firm?
Share Humility, Avoid Hypocrisy
April 26, 2020 • Pastor Steve Gibson
Nobody likes being called a "hypocrite." When we pretend we aren't sinners and put moralistic rules between Jesus Christ and those who seek Him, that is exactly what we become. Every person needs God's grace the same amount, and we'll talk about it Sunday.
The Living Hope: Easter Celebration
April 12, 2020 • Pastor Steve Gibson
We have hope because we believe Jesus has power over the grave. He had to suffer and die because the creation that He loved was held captive by the power of satan and death. But He rose again, and this is the reason we celebrate. The reason we are alive. The reason we hope!
