Ghost Stories

Holy Ghost. Ever heard of Him? What about the Holy Spirit? Most of us know something about God and about His Son, Jesus, but we don't know much about the third person of the Trinity. In this series, we'll examine His work during creation and in the lives of God's people. We'll remove the mystery, confusion, and misconceptions we may have about the identity of the Holy Ghost (a.k.a. the Holy Spirit).

Socially Acceptable

“Let’s avoid the big sins and stay off God’s radar!”  Often, we can be so focused on avoiding BIG sins that we overlook the subtle sins in our lives. These subtle everyday, boring sins may be socially acceptable, but they have catastrophic consequences. Let’s consider the full counsel of God regarding this issue.

Lord -OR- Savior

We might accept God as our Savior, but do we accept him as our Lord?  Oh, we love the 'grace' part of our faith, but not the 'obedience' part. As Christians, we forget about the rest of the Gospel.  So much so, that we often ignore concepts of sin, holiness, fear of the Lord, repentance and obedience.  In this message, let’s take a look at the full counsel of the Lord.

American Idols

Americans love idols, but God surely does not. If you love and trust something more than God, then it's your idol. It may be a "good" thing...but if it "replaces" God in your life, it's a sin. Let's explore why this is so important to God.

Obedience: God's Love Language

Same God, New Year

The only thing that seems constant is that things constantly change.  Change brings with it uncertainty, uneasiness, or maybe even fear.  Yet, we look for stability, permanence, and security in things that are always changing.  So, what or who should we put our hope and trust into that is UN-changing?

Fix Your Thoughts

If you want to change as a person, start with your thinking.  Fix your thoughts!  Your thoughts control your life, behavior, attitude, and joy.  Satan uses mental strongholds to keep us from God’s truth and purpose for our lives.  We must win this spiritual battle in our minds.  When you “fix your thoughts” on God, God fixes your thoughts.

It is impossible to please God without faith. Our faith is a gift from God; yet our faith can falter at times.  God provides times of trial and testing in order to prove that our faith is real and to strengthen it.  Let’s look at the eye witness accounts found in the New Testament to see faith being lived out in ordinary people.

A New "REAL" You

Many people like the NEW-ness or the “fresh start” of the New Year. Perhaps we feel like we can start a NEW self…with NEW goals and NEW plans…a NEW and better version of ourselves. God tells us “to put off your OLD self…and put on the NEW self.” Pastor Mitch Cherry from Hillside Church joins us to teach about how and why we do that.

I Want To Believe, But...

I want to believe in God, but I can't feel Him, He doesn't answer my prayer, God's a big killjoy, He allows bad things to happen, I believe in science, and there are so many religions.  Maybe these have been deal-breakers for you as it relates to believing in God. When we say, “I want to believe,” are we talking about God…or our own version of Him?

We Are A Battleship

What kind of church are we: a cruise ship or battleship?  It’s ‘all hands on deck’ as we ensure our battleship is outfitted with The Armor of God as we engage in spiritual warfare.  Our mission is to take care of fellow soldiers on this battleship and fight for those not currently on God’s battleship.
