We believe that verse by verse Biblical teaching is the best way to feed growing Christians. 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. We are currently in a more topical series called, “Proverbs’ Wisdom”, taking a survey approach of the book of Proverbs and it’s many themes.

Divorce Part 1

This is the first of the Healing and Dealing series that will be ongoing throughout the years ahead.  The purpose of this series is to take on common trials or challenges in a practical way through Biblical teaching and by testimonies given by those that have dealt with divorce and have experienced healing. In this […]

Week 9 – The Virtuous Woman

Within the book of Proverbs we find an essay on different types of women. Solomon gives his sage advice concerning silly women, an adulterous woman laying a snare, contentious wives, and King Lemuel’s essay on the Proverbs 31 ‘Virtuous Woman’. On this Mother’s Day, we spend most of our time celebrating the woman that has […]

Week 8 – Money

One of the most often misquoted Scriptures is “Money is the root of all evil”. The Apostle Paul actually writes that it is “the love of money” (1 Timothy 6:10). Money is not evil. God gifts us and graces us with the ability to make money and provide for ourselves and our family. It’s what […]

Week 7 – Peer Pressure

There is no doubt that every society suffers from the phenomena called ‘peer pressure’.  Peer Pressure can be defined as “The social influence a peer group exerts on its individual members, as each member attempts to conform to the expectations of the group.”  The important word in this definition is ‘influence’ and the phrase ‘conform […]

Week 6 Vision

‘Vision’ occurs when God gives you a glimpse of your purpose. To receive His vision God must communicate. In order for God to communicate, we must listen and hear his voice. The first part of Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no revelation (or vision), people cast off restraint.” Without a glimpse of who we […]

The Resurrection

My sin put Jesus on the cross. He who was without sin bore my thoughts, actions, lifestyle, doubts, unbelief, unforgiveness, pride, and fears, along with their penalty. Jesus took my place; He took my death so that I could be reconciled to God and that I may have life to the full. Because Jesus rose […]

Week 5 – Gossip

The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to a man’s inmost parts. (Prov 18:8). The same way we “can’t eat just one” according to the Lays potato chips commercial; gossip has a very addictive quality to it. We want to tell or hear something juicy about someone else. Why is […]

Week 4 – Trials

In James 1:2 we read the baffling statement that we are to be thankful, even joyous, when we encounter and go into trials.  The book of Proverbs contains great gems of wisdom regarding trials and their purpose for the righteous man.  In this message we will explore some of these wise words of Solomon and […]

Week 3: Conflict

Our desire to be right or to win is often sinful. Conflict between two people, ideas, or objects is defined as a collision.  How do we navigate these clashes in our lives? They are unable to be avoided and even necessary. Jesus said we would have offense and opposition. How we deal with conflict can […]

Week 2: Marriage

Scripture tells us that Solomon was the wisest man that has ever lived.  Yet, this incredibly wise man made some very poor decisions when it came to women.  He had many wives and concubines which went against what God taught.  Yet, for all these mistakes he still experienced marriage and many of the proverbs give […]

Week 1: Our Tongue

The most destructive weapon on the face of this earth can often be our very own tongue! With our words we can bless and we can curse. Whoever said that “sticks and stones may hurt my bones, but words can never hurt me.” was delusional, lying, or at best- wishful thinking. The book of Proverbs […]

Disciples that Make Disciples

I Am So Angry!

Jonah was a man with deep anger in his soul. Angry that he was inconvenienced; angry that the people of Nineveh still exist; angry that he was uncomfortable and hot; angry toward people and towards God. This anger and rage was eating Jonah up inside and making him miserable. One of the struggles of mankind […]

Pride & Prejudice

Jonah willfully disobeyed God because of his own pride and prejudice toward the Assyrians as a people group.  He put his own opinions, experiences, and personal feelings ahead of God’s will and plan for him and the people of Nineveh.   What does prejudice look like in your life?

The Message of God

Jonah was the bearer of bad news to the wicked people of Nineveh. In 40 days the city and its inhabitants would be destroyed because of their evil ways. Scripture says that upon hearing this news the people “believed God”. They mourned, fasted, and most importantly—they repented. God met their passionate pleas and contrite hearts […]

The Call of God

Jonah was a prophet of God.  As such, when he was called to fulfill that calling and disobeyed he was going directly against his calling…that of a prophet.  What is God’s calling for each of our lives (specific and general)? The reality is there are specific things we are all called to do as believers […]

Running from God

Jonah was a man who knew God and could recognize His voice. Though Jonah was a prophet of God he had his own idea on how to live his life. The Bible says that upon hearing the word of the Lord and God’s plan for him that instead of obeying; Jonah ran away from the […]

Jesus is the Sabbath

In the Old Covenant; the Sabbath was a covenant sign between man and God that pointed to the New. In the New Covenant, Jesus is the covenant sign between man and God! Jesus said in Matt 5:17 that He didn’t come to destroy the law or the prophets. He came to fulfill them (or to […]

Old Testament Names and Titles of Jesus

What’s in a name? In our culture, though we may try to give a name to our child that suits him or her or what we want them to one day be like; mostly our names only serve to distinguish us apart from one another. Not so in Biblical times, particularly in the Old Testament. […]

Prophecies of Jesus in the Old Testament

The Old Testament as a whole points to Jesus. Specifically there are numerous passages of prophecy relating to the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ. These prophecies are not just in the major and minor prophets of the OT, but also found in the Psalms and historical books as well. When sin entered into the world, so […]

Christmas Eve – Jesus is Immanuel

Jesus’ most precious name in my estimation is that of Immanuel, “God with us”. God. With. Us. Let that now very common Christmas familiarity sink in for a minute. Through Jesus and our faith and reliance in Him, God is with us; without separation. He communes with us, he makes His habitat in our hearts […]

Jesus in the Law AND Grace

The Law and Grace are often viewed as enemies; the former coming before Jesus. But Jesus isn’t absent in the Law. Yes, even the Law points to Jesus! How can the God of the Old Testament who condoned wholesale killing of other nations be the God of the New Testament where His love and grace […]

OT Foreshadows of Jesus

If “a picture is worth a thousand words” then an acted out or spoken visual is all the more effective. Jesus Himself communicated often using parables. The study of how God used pictures to teach His people is usually called typology; which means expressing concepts or messages through the use of types or word pictures. […]

The OT Gospel

Many see the Old Testament merely as “The Law” and the New Testament as “Grace”. We have been mistaken to believe that grace, salvation, and the gospel were first introduced into the world upon the incarnation of Jesus and the four gospel books penned that start our New Testament. However, the gospel of salvation and […]

The Old Testament is Not Obsolete

The Old Testament is often misunderstood, ignored, or even maligned in the church today as we embrace the New Testament almost exclusively. The OT is mainly relegated to moralistic “Sunday School Bible stories” or biographical examples of how to live or not live. On the road to Emmaus Jesus appeared to His disciples and “beginning […]
