Jesus’ baptism is a beautiful example of the Tri-unity of God; the Son’s baptism, the Father’s affirmation, and the Holy Spirit’s witness. Our Elder Larry Stout challenges us to see our baptism and Christian life in the light of Jesus’ baptism. We hope this message is a blessing to you.
In Mathew 17:14-20 a father comes to Jesus asking him to heal his son who the disciples could heal. In this sermon Pastor Raphael expounds on the passage and calls people to a growing faith. We pray this message is a blessing to you.
When God justifies us, he declares us righteous through Christ's death for us; when He sanctifies us, he makes us holy through the power of the Holy Spirit within us. In this message Pastor Raphael examines 2 Corinthians 3:18 and shows us how God continually makes us holy through the gospel. Hope this message is a blessing to you.
As we continue to in our Essentials Series, this week we deal with how to be sure you are saved. As we examine the Scriptures it is evident that God wants us to walk in confidence and full assurance of our salvation. While there are many ways we can tackle this subject Pastor Raphael shows from 1 John how the grounds of our faith are found within the Godhead. The Son was crucified on our behalf, the Father sent the Son and received the payment for our sin and the Holy Spirit shines the light on Christ's finished work . Hope this Message is a blessing to you.
What is the grand all inclusive purpose of all men? It is to know God. This is the big picture of the bible and the heart of Christianity. Listen more to Larry Stout explore Hebrews 1, showing us who God is. We pray that this would be an opportunity for you to know him personally.
We began our new Series Christian Essentials today. In this message Pastor Raphael explores Phillipians 3:1-11 to show that the essence of being a Christian is not Creed, Code of Conduct and Cult but knowing Christ himself. A Christian is someone who knows God as father, friend, trusts Jesus as savior and obeys him as Lord. Hope this is a blessing to you.
Scripture is clear in Psalm 685-6 that God is a Father to the fatherless and protector of widows this is who he is in his holy habitation. This is not his side job, but main work. He places the solitary in a home and does it through salvation and orphan care. As we grow in our awarenes of what he has done for us we grow in our imitating hid heart towards the fatherless. We pray that this message is a blessing for you.
This is the last message in the series Are you listening In Mathew 13. Pastor Raphael encourages us to ask God to help us to have hearts which understand, be continually repentant and position ourselves to bear fruit that remains. Hope this blesses you.
