Robbie Evans, a Missionary to Mexico, preaches on Acts 1, describing that we live in an epic called “The Day of Salvation”. In Acts 1, the disciples wanted to know when the Kingdom of Israel would be restored, but instead of answering their question, Jesus adjusted their hearts so that they’d prioritize being witnesses in the current age. The power of God, given by the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, enables believers to be Jesus’ witnesses until He returns. Robbie encourages the Church to ask God for a fresh outpouring of the power and fullness of Holy Spirit.

Using an interview-style format, Pastor Bruce Plummer and Samuel Orlando discuss the disparity between the average American’s idea of poverty, and the reality of extreme poverty faced by 400 million children around the world. Orlando talks about his difficult childhood, which featured the loss of his father at age five. He then outlines how Compassion works through the local church to minister to needy children. Also discussed was the need for individuals to support this vital work by prayerfully considering sponsorship of children in Guatemala.
Today’s message considers a surprising priority of the Lord’s heart and intentions. Do we know how God thinks and what’s important to Him? We find all of that in the Scripture, so today’s study tells us something of what’s important to God Himself.
We often think of obedience as the “down side” of being a Christian–something that’s hard and vaguely unpleasant to think about. But obedience is often God’s way of releasing hope in our lives. This sermon shows how hope arose when God’s people simply did what He asked. Bottom line: Obedience is our friend!
We’re in the middle of a series of messages on “Hope”, specifically, how we receive hope. Hope realized is an incredible joy, but there is a process to receive hope. This week we confirm three important requirements for receiving hope but add an important twist! All that is found in the story of a paraplegic.
Hope is not a wish, but instead, a solid, reliable expectation! There are keys to unlocking hope that can be found in a great miracle story of the Bible. In it, a blind man receives sight and his life is forever changed. What happened to him can happen to you, whether you can physically see or not! *Sermon notes are posted, but the sermon recording is unavailable! Our apologies!*
We’re beginning a series on hope, and what better day to begin than Easter! We’ll take a look at the way most of us think of hope, and then we’ll look at better way the Bible defines it. We’ll also see how secure our hopes for eternal life are when they are connected to Jesus Christ.
Good Friday is all about reflecting on the price that was paid for our restoration and freedom!
