Press On!

Are you a growing Christian? That is a different question from “Are you a Christian?” Many people who are faithful in attending church very regularly are not growing as they should in their faith.

Where Is Your Confidence?

If you were to tell people why you think you will go to heaven when you die, what would you tell them? Where is your confidence today that you will spend eternity in heaven? We can put our confidence in anything we want, but that doesn’t mean we should be confident. This sermon goes through what we need to have confidence when we stand before God some day.

Where It All Began

If we are going to understand Easter and why Easter still matters in 2014, we are going to have to go back to the beginning to see the root of the problem. Genesis 3 provides the background against which Easter is best seen.
