Psalm 19: 7-14; John 8: 32, 14: 6, 17: 17, 18: 38
The Word: A Foundation of Truth
"What is truth?" This old question, once asked by Pontius Pilate, is one of the most difficult terms to define today. The world wants us to believe there is no ultimate truth any more. Or they describe it as "what I personally feel!". In contrast, Jesus described himself as the "Truth..."

The Gospel - The Center of God's Story
What is at the center of our faith? What is so fundamental that all Christians must agree with it - or not be Christians. For most Christians the answer to this question is easy - 'It's the gospel!'
So, what is the Gospel? You may be surprised!

1 Chron. 12: 32, Luke 17: 20-37, Josh. 24: 14-28
Unfocused: Focusing on the Insignificant
With all the confusion in this world, many of us have become distracted. Our priorities have become blurred and our faith fuzzy. What does a Christian focus on? It's time we step away and revisit what is essential. It's time we return to our calling and purpose in a world of madness and mess.

Judges 19-21; Gen.19 How bad does it have to get before God will step in and do something? This is the question the writer of Judges leaves us with. In these final chapters the author paints us a final picture of a society in moral decay, civil war, social violence and perverse values. Is our world that different?
May 31, 2020 - Judges: Just Messed Up, Sermon 10 of 11
Judges 17-18; Josh.19:47 Israel is clearly a mess! The people loved idols made of money. The Priesthood was spiritually compromised. And the Tribes were wandering around doing atrocious acts rather than obeying God. Do we see the same practices today in our world?
May 24, 2020 - Judges: Just Messed Up, Sermon 9 of 11
Judges 15-16; Isa.59:2; Lev.26:14-33 "Be sure your sins will find you out!” (Num.32:23 KJV). Too many Christians live as if this verse is not true. They act as if God will ignore repeated, defiant sin. Do we really believe that God is somehow blind to our sin? Do we think there will be no consequences for an unholy lifestyle?
