April 15, 2018: "Life Lessons Facing Trials"

April 8, 2018: "Controlling Our Speech" - Part 2

James | Bob Rutherford, Pastor
The Holy Bible reveals that evil speech is unacceptable to the Lord. God hates a lies, false witnesses, and those who spread strife among believers. “Controlling Our Speech, Part 2” continues our study of what the Book of James says about the words we use. Sinful speech is a result of a depraved mind. To overcome sinful speech, we must repent in humility, submit to God, receive His Word continually and put it into practice.

April 1, 2018: "What Does the Resurrection of Jesus Mean to You?"

John 20 | Bob Rutherford, Pastor
"What does the resurrection of Jesus mean to you?" There are several responses observed in the Gospels: Unbelief, confusion, and those who lie about the event. Even if you believe that Jesus arose, this does nothing for you unless you surrender your life completely to Him. Those that do will experience a changed life. Jesus conquers both physical and spiritual death for the believer. Click here to view and print the message outline.

March 30, 2018: "Isaiah's Perspective on Man's Dilemma and God's Remedy"

Isaiah 59 | Bob Rutherford, Pastor
Our sins separate us from God. In our pastor’s Good Friday service, “Isaiah’s Perspective on Man’s Dilemma and God’s Remedy,” we find that mankind is in spiritual rebellion and cannot escape its depraved condition on its own strength. In love, God took action by sending His Son Jesus. When we accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we are clothed in His righteousness. Click here to view and print the message outline.

March 25, 2018: "Things Are Not Always As They Seem"

Matthew 21 | Bob Rutherford, Pastor
You cannot determine the condition of your life based on whether good or bad things are happening to you. As we examine the events on Palm Sunday, as Jesus entered Jerusalem, we discover that "Things Are Not Always As They Seem." We can celebrate Jesus, question Him, or condemn Him, but only one decision will make a difference in your life: Recognize Jesus for who He is and give your life to Him.
