“The Power of a Promise” ( Part One)
The Power of a Promise, (Part Two)
This message is a part of a series of sermons on the basics, but don’t let that fool you! There are some deep and important questions we answer while I tell you “who you are not”. Identity is such an important factor in living, especially in the challenges. Assess your identity as we examine how God addresses this vital question.
This week’s message concerns another important area of basic Christian life. It’s all about who you listen to. We all understand that there’s a difference between sound coming into our ears and really listening. The people we really listen to can effectively change our lives, so how do you know who you should…and shouldn’t hear?
Father’s Day is a day of mixed emotions! Everyone has some sort of “father issues” it seems, and good fathers are a rare breed. But it doesn’t have to remain that way. God has a clear job description for fathers and when you’ve never had a good one, He’s willing and able to be your Heavenly Father.

Blurb: Last week, we talked about Jesus as our foundation. This week’s sermon shows us how to build on that, working with God as brings everything together in Christ: guarding our hearts, maintaining Christian unity, and believing when it isn’t easy.
When we think of building our spiritual lives wisely, we often think of Bible study, worship, prayer, outreach, etc. But that’s not what the Scriptures say. Our foundation is Christ Himself. This sermon demonstrates how Jesus is at the beginning, middle and end of everything, and shows us how to begin to find ourselves in His story.
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.
