  • Rejection, Loneliness and the Gospel

    Rejection, Loneliness and the Gospel

    03/10/2020 Duración: 42min

    Loneliness is something each one of us has felt. We feel it when we are abandoned by a friend or rejected by a family member; we feel it when a child moves out or a loved one passes away; we feel it when we thought we found the person who would take it all away, but somehow it remains. In 2 Timothy 4 Paul experiences deep loneliness. He has been forsaken by a friend, deserted by the church, and harmed by an enemy all as he sits chained in a dungeon waiting to die. However, as lonely as Paul feels he finds strength in the reality that he isn’t really alone and never will be again. This message will look at where Paul found hope in the midst of his loneliness and how we can find it as well.

  • Running the Race

    Running the Race

    26/09/2020 Duración: 40min

    In a world that calls us to follow our desires and avoid suffering Paul comes to offer us something worth suffering for. Paul describes the Christian life as a fight and a race but then he tells us what it is that makes all the sacrifices involved worth it in the end.

  • Preach the Word

    Preach the Word

    19/09/2020 Duración: 43min

    What exactly is preaching and why does Paul think it is so important. Not only will we answer these questions but we will see that this passage doesn’t just apply to pastors, it applies to all of us.

  • Following in the Footsteps of the Apostle Paul

    Following in the Footsteps of the Apostle Paul

    12/09/2020 Duración: 45min

    In 2nd Timothy 3 Paul lays out two very different paths to follow in life. One is flexible morphing to make room for whatever our hearts desire. This path has the appearance of godliness, but it denies its power. The other path is lined with suffering and persecution and it requires us to depend upon the power of God for our very survival. This sermon will show us which path Paul chose and why we would be wise to follow in his footsteps.

  • Cheap Grace and the Appearance of Godliness.

    Cheap Grace and the Appearance of Godliness.

    05/09/2020 Duración: 37min

    In 2 Timothy 3 Paul warns Timothy about the danger of false teachers who have the appearance of godliness but deny its power. In this message we will consider a few of the different ways that we are tempted to settle for the appearance of godliness and deny the true power of God’s grace. Specifically we will talk about the danger of making the confession of our sins into a form of godliness and the danger of presuming upon God’s grace while continuing to live for ourselves.

  • Do You Love God the Most?

    Do You Love God the Most?

    29/08/2020 Duración: 46min

    Do you love God? A lot of people reading this will probably say “Yes.” But in 2 Timothy 3 the question isn’t “Do you love God? But “Do you love God the most.” In this passage Paul lays out the danger of disordered love where we find ourselves loving good things more than the God who made them. In this sermon we will talk about how to tell what it is that we love the most. We will also discuss how we can find freedom from the disordered loves that are constantly trying to suck us in.

  • Correcting Your Opponents with Gentleness

    Correcting Your Opponents with Gentleness

    22/08/2020 Duración: 37min

    Within the context of the local church, there will be some that are under Jesus Christ as their Master, while others are under the evil one as their master. The way Paul commands Timothy to talk to these opponents, can also teach us how to correct our opponents in such a polarizing culture. Listen and hear how the good news of a gentle and lowly Savior creates in his followers a gentleness that mirrors the gentleness of Jesus.

  • Words of Life and Words of Death

    Words of Life and Words of Death

    15/08/2020 Duración: 38min

    Paul applies how the Gospel and endurance apply directly to our words. There are some in the Ephesian churches who will use the word of God and the Gospel to give life to others, while there are some who will use their words to spread false teaching and death. Listen and hear how the Gospel frees us from irreverent babble and spurs us on to gospel proclamation for the glory of God and the good of the church.

  • Remember Jesus Christ

    Remember Jesus Christ

    08/08/2020 Duración: 37min

    Due to Paul's impending death, he wants to prepare Timothy and all whom he disciples into a life of endurance that leads to seeing Jesus face-to-face. How does endurance happen in the Christian life? It happens by remembering Jesus and the gospel that cannot be bound. Listen and hear how remembering Jesus is the heartbeat of endurance.

  • Be Strengthened by Grace: How Grace and Hard Work Relate

    Be Strengthened by Grace: How Grace and Hard Work Relate

    01/08/2020 Duración: 39min

    One of the things that Christians often find themselves wrestling with is how does God’s law and obedience and effort relate to God’s grace and mercy and forgiveness. Is the primary message of the Bible “Just Believe” or is it more a call to “Radical Discipleship?” In 2 Timothy 2:1-7 Paul helps us get a better understanding on how God’s grace and hard work are supposed to relate. We will also see how Paul tries to help us better understand the Christian life by comparing it to the life of a soldier and an athlete and a farmer...

  • Suffering for the Gospel

    Suffering for the Gospel

    25/07/2020 Duración: 49min

    In 2 Timothy 1:8 Paul calls Timothy not to be ashamed of Jesus, but rather to join him in suffering for the Gospel. How does this verse apply to us today? Should we really be suffering for the Gospel today in America? In this sermon, we will discuss if suffering for the Gospel is really necessary or not. We will also talk about what our motivation for not being ashamed of the Gospel should be and if the suffering that comes with it is really worth it.

  • The Power of the Cross

    The Power of the Cross

    18/07/2020 Duración: 35min

    Today, just as in Paul’s day, two forms of power vie for our attention. The world holds out a power found in strength that offers us control so that we can avoid suffering and gain significance. But in 2 Timothy Paul shows us another way. Here he offers a power found in our weakness for the sake of love. Rather than avoiding suffering this power enables us to endure it and instead of seeking its own significance this power enables us to consider other people more significant than ourselves. While on the surface the power that this world offers appears far more attractive in this sermon we will see that true freedom comes when we embrace the power of the cross.

  • The Promise of Life

    The Promise of Life

    11/07/2020 Duración: 48min

    2 Timothy is the last letter we have from the Apostle Paul. He wrote it from an underground dungeon with chains around his wrists as he waited to be executed. The letter contains his last words to a man he often referred to as his beloved son. In this introduction, we will see how it is that someone stuck in a dungeon can be filled with gratitude and how someone who saw themselves as the worst of sinners could face death with a clean conscience. We will also see the vital role that God has called each of us to play in passing our faith down to others.

  • Overwhelmed by God

    Overwhelmed by God

    04/07/2020 Duración: 01h02min

    The Psalms were written for a year like 2020 because they give expression to our many different emotions – our highs and our lows – our confusion and our confidence – our anger and our love – our deepest sadness and highest joys. The Psalms legitimize our emotions. The Psalms remind us that our emotions are a gift from God and rightly understood they lead us to the Creator and Redeemer of our emotions so that they can then be used to glorify Him in all of their great variety. Listen to hear how Jesus gives us hope even when we are feeling overwhelmed.

  • White privilege and the Gospel

    White privilege and the Gospel

    27/06/2020 Duración: 49min

    I know the topic of white privilege isn’t something you would expect to hear about in a sermon but over the past week, I have found that God has used this precise topic to give me a better understanding of the Gospel. In this sermon, I hope that you will come along on that journey with me. In the end, we will consider different ways that we might lay down privilege in solidarity with those who are suffering as well as ways that we might take up privilege in order to leverage it for the sake of others.

  • Corporate Confession

    Corporate Confession

    20/06/2020 Duración: 46min

    Is it right to confess the sins of our fathers? We see Nehemiah and Ezra and Daniel and the Psalmist doing it, but still, the practice seems strange. I mean do we really need to be forgiven for things we have never personally done? In this sermon, we will look at what the Bible teaches about the corporate confession of sins both past and present. We will also seek to apply that teaching to the long history of racial injustice that has plagued the church in America.

  • Listening and Lamenting

    Listening and Lamenting

    13/06/2020 Duración: 47min

    As we consider the tragic murder of George Floyd and the massive impact it has had on our black brothers and sisters will we listen and lament the racial divide in our country and all of the pain and suffering it has caused? Psalm 22:24 reminds us that our God does not despise or abhor the affliction of the afflicted. The question we will address today is will we join Him in sitting in solidarity with the suffering. One day our God is going to come and wipe every tear away which means that if we are ever going to weep with those who weep, now is the time.

  • Allegiance to the Man on the Tree

    Allegiance to the Man on the Tree

    06/06/2020 Duración: 01h05min

    Our world is in the midst of civil unrest, racism, and injustice. What is our role as followers of Jesus and how do we figure out what to do? It may sound odd but we need to learn from the trees. Listen and hear how the Gospel and trees creates a people whose allegiance causes them to bear fruit for the King.

  • Longing for Home

    Longing for Home

    30/05/2020 Duración: 45min

    No matter how happily settled you and I maybe each of us knows that deep down inside something tells us there has to be more. C.S. Lewis called this longing our inconsolable secret. In this sermon, we will consider what it is that we are ultimately longing for and how it is that we might one day experience the satisfaction we are seeking.

  • Forgiveness


    23/05/2020 Duración: 52min

    All of us have a deep longing not only to be loved but to be enjoyed and appreciated by the people we esteem the most. Growing up we quickly learn that if we want to get the love we seek we need to be good. But what happens when we realize that we are not good enough to get the amount of love we need to be happy? In Psalm 32 David answers this important question for us.
