June 26, 2011 | John Bayles | Farewell From The New Covenant Divines (Romans 16:1-16)

In an amazing listing, the Apostle Paul sends a farewell greeting from his co-laborers in the Gospel. Of note among this catalogue are the several women listed as "fellow-workers" and "fellow-apostles." This sermon highlights the practical application of the New Covenant view of women in the home and the church founded in the radical viewpoint of the New Covenant: "You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise" (Gal.3:26-29).

June 19, 2011 | Joe Porter | Father's Day

Why is the church in America considered weak and without the power of secure relationships. Today Pastor Porter draws from the lives of Moses, Joshua, Elijah and Elisha to highlight the significance of the spiritual fathers, so rare, but yet so needed in the church today. Where are the fathers and the sons in God's kingdom today? Much is at stake, but a great opportunity also exists today for change, and with loyalty and faithfulness as our heartcry it is our hope that revival fires will burn again in the church. May God raise up fathers and sons in His kingdom for His glory!

June 12, 2011 | John Bayles | I Hope to Visit You (Romans 15:23-33)

As the Apostle Paul comes to the close of his letter to the Romans he projects a personal desire regarding going to Spain and on the way visiting Rome. However, he must first go to Jerusalem. Later we know he wrote to Timothy, his young son in the Lord, "I have finished the race..." However, we also know he likely never went to Spain, though he felt it was a critical part completing the work to which the Lord had called him. Why? Because he was arrested in Jerusalem before he could fulfill this mission. What is there for us to see today? We all deal with the struggles we find in life's changes. How often have we become discouraged with the disappointment of not being able to do what we thought God Himself wanted us to do - for Him. There are keys in this text which will give positive answers to life's disappointments.

June 5, 2011 | S. Molla | The Kinsman Redeemer (Book of Ruth)

The Book of Ruth is filled with spiritual truth from both the Old Testament and the New. Central to the very survival of the young Moabite woman was the presence of the Law of Moses, which provided the means of Ruth's survival from starvation, being chosen for marriage, and entering into a redemptive life relationship. You will find this survey to be factually interesting and have a deep personal spiritual application to your life.
