Audio Sermons

We believe that verse by verse Biblical teaching is the best way to feed growing Christians. We are currently in a series “Acts of the Sent Ones” , going verse by verse through the book of Acts.  It is our prayer that as we teach in this fashion, God will reveal the issues in our lives that matter today.  He has always been faithful to give us just the right word for every season.

Praise to the King of Kings (Acts 12:19-25)

The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy him forever! In our text, Herod, wearing his royal robes, sitting on his throne, and being called a god by the people was struck down by the Lord for not giving praise to God. Our lives self-destruct when we take for our glory, that […]

God’s Plan to Rescue Us (Acts 12:1-19)

“Quick, Get Up”  Peter heard these words from an angel as he sat between two soldiers, shackled and confined…a prisoner.  God does indeed rescue us out of some amazing difficulties, some of our own making and some by the hands of others.  In this message we will explore just how God is a God that […]

Evidence of Grace Part 2 (Acts 11:19-30)

Grace is the whole of God’s activity toward man. This is unearned and unmerited by man. He cannot achieve a higher status with God, nor can he earn this divine transformation. However, as we talked about last week; ‘grace’ is the divine influence upon the heart, AND it’s reflection in the life of man that […]

Evidence of Grace – Acts 11:19-30

When Barnabas arrived in Antioch he “saw the evidence of the grace of God.” What is God’s grace? What is the evidence that can be seen? What does the evidence of grace look like in a believer’s life? The disciples, it is said, were also first called “Christians” in Antioch. What would cause others to […]

Free to Eat, Wise to Choose

God’s word has much to say about what kind of food He intended us to eat.  From Genesis through Paul’s writings, we see evidence that God cares about how we care for our body.  Follow along as we discuss a Biblical view of diet and nutrition.

gRace Relations (Acts 10)

gRace Relations – Acts 10 – Peter gets a revelation of God’s plan to rescue and redeem men from all nations, regardless of ethnic backgrounds, skin color, or religious practice.

The Impact of a Servant (Acts 9:32-43)

Peter is called to a room where a woman named Tabitha lay dead. She is surrounded by mourners who, as they cried, showed off the clothing that she had made for them. There isn’t much we know about Tabitha other than she appeared to touch the lives of others with her service and that she […]

Paul: A Believer on Fire (Acts 9:19-31)

Acts 9:21 – All those who heard him were astonished and asked, “Isn’t he the man who raised havoc in Jerusalem among those who call on this name? And hasn’t he come here to take them as prisoners to the chief priests?” Saul’s conversion was complete and total. Can others see the change in us? […]

Saul Meets Jesus (Acts 9:1-19)

If Saul of Tarsus who imprisoned and killed Christians can meet Jesus and have his life radically changed, then anyone can– no matter what their past is like! Saul, who was once deceived, now sees clearly. Both physical and spiritual scales fall from his eyes. That day, blinding light pierced into darkness. Saul is the […]

The Right Place at the Right Time (Acts 8:26-40)

Philip being instrumental in the conversion of the Ethiopian eunuch demonstrates in a powerful way the leading of the Holy Spirit. There are always opportunities all around us where God is moving on hearts and orchestrating His saving grace. We too can be “in the right place at the right time” if we are sensitive […]

The Captivity of Sin – Acts 8:4-25

The Captivity of Sin – In this story we see a very popular man, Simon the Sorcerer, attempt to purchase the power of the Holy Spirit.  Peter uses the phrase, “For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin.”  What caused Simon to be ‘captive to sin and full of bitterness’? […]

Kicked Out of the Nest (Acts 7:51- 8:4)

The stoning of Stephen, the first Christian martyr, began great persecution that broke out against the early believers. Saul began to destroy the church. All except the Apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria. Jesus’ commission before ascending to the Father was to be His witnesses in the very places that they were now scattered. […]

Dealing With Tough Stuff (Acts 6:8- 7:51)

Our aim should be to emulate Stephen; a man (or woman) “full of God’s grace and power”. This description is not merely philosophical or even theological– it is a way of life, tested greatly by people attacking him. Stephen did not have a life or ministry where he skated through unscathed, quite the contrary. When […]

Footprints: I Am a Missionary

New Year’s Attention (Acts 6:1-7)

There are many good, great, busy, and important things that we can do. Many things that utilize our gifts, energy, resources and time. Yet, we are only truly effective, obedient, and happy when we give our attention to what God is calling us as individuals and as a church to do. In Acts 6, we […]

Jesus is God Incarnate

The birth into human history of Jesus is why we celebrate Christmas. God became the ultimate missionary; putting on flesh (incarnation) and invading His creation as the ultimate servant. Jesus is fully man and still fully God. His virgin birth is especially crucial in connection with the person of Jesus Christ. His incarnation allowed Him […]

Jesus as King

God made Jesus both Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36). He has ultimate authority and majesty; He is King of kings and Lord of lords! A king has a king-dom or dominion; the sphere in which he rules. His kingdom is advanced when and where He reigns. Jesus is “far above all rule and authority, power […]

Jesus as Priest

As our High Priest, Christ Jesus has opened for us the way of access to God so that we continually draw near into God’s very presence without fear but with confidence and in full assurance of faith. We no longer need a special temple or tent, we no longer need a special man (high priest) […]

Jesus as Prophet

Jesus was not merely a messenger of revelation from God (like all the other prophets), but was himself the source of revelation from God. Rather than saying as the Old Testament prophets did, “Thus says the Lord,” Jesus could begin divinely authoritative teaching with the amazing statement, “But I say unto you”. Jesus is the […]

The Full Message of the Gospel- Part 2 (Acts 5:33-42)

The “good news” can only continue to be just that when we understand why it is good news and that it is a present tense reality for those who do not know Him AND for those who do. When the Sanhedrin wanted to put to death the apostles, a Pharisee named Gamaliel spoke up and […]

The Full Message of the Gospel- Part 1 (Acts 5:17-32)

On the heels of people pouring into the streets to be healed miraculously, the Apostles were arrested. During the night an angel of the Lord busted them out of prison, and told them to go to the temple courts and “tell the people the full message of this new life”. This is a directive to […]

Let us Rest (Acts 5:12-16)

One of the ten commandments is to honor the Sabbath Day and keep it holy.  In the modern church that commandment is rarely spoken about and it seems we have lost or chosen to forget the true meaning of that day.  So many Christians treat Sunday as an ‘optional…what do I want to do today…day’  […]

Acts Highlights – Mission of the Church

Is God Mad? (Acts 5:1-11)

The story of Ananias and Sapphira makes us very uncomfortable with today’s popular “feel good” theology.   God’s character has not changed from the Old Testament to the New.  He is an awsome God who demands holiness, righteousness, discipline, and obedience to His commands.  While He is gracious, kind, and loving, He is also a […]

Spirituality Weds Practicality (Acts 4:32 – 5:11)

The New Testament church is called to give our best; to God, His church, and to others. The book of Acts gives great exposure to the unity and generosity of the early church when it came to money and possessions. The story of Ananias and Sapphira also give a wake-up call of how serious God […]

Testify of God’s Power (Acts 4:23-31)

After being miraculously freed from jail, John and Peter were reunited with the brethren where they celebrated the providence of God.  When they did this an amazing thing happened…the Holy Spirit showed up!  Testimonies of the works of God in our lives seem to be a way to usher in the presence of God into […]
