Knowing and Obeying Jesus

HPBC Elder: Josh Longmore – An exposition of Matthew 7:13-29

– Jesus makes a shocking statement in Matthew 7 when He says, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven.” It then becomes a question of how we know for certain that we know Jesus. An expositional study of these passages and supplemental texts shows us that it is by our obedience to God that we know we belong to Him.

The Incarnation

Guest Speaker: Caleb Abernathy – An exposition of Philippians 2:1-11

– As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Christ our Lord, ministry leader Caleb Abernathy takes us to the book of Philippians for an expositional sermon which shows the ramifications of God taking on flesh, and how it demonstrates the character of our King.

Due to a malfunction with our recording equipment, the audio from Sunday morning’s worship service failed to record. Unfortunately, this means that the December 15th, 2013 sermon cannot be posted on the SermonCast.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We hope to have the issue resolved by next week’s worship service. Thank you for showing interest in High Point Baptist Church’s pulpit ministry.

The Lord is My Shepherd

Guest Speaker: Pastor John Richard – An exposition of Psalm 23:1-4

– The 23rd Psalm is one of the most well-known passages in Scripture, but what is the true meaning and context of the words David wrote, and how do they apply to the Christian life when it comes to dealing with trials? Pastor John Richard provides an expositional view of this text to show us.

The Needs of the Saints

Pastor Joe Schloegel – An exposition of Romans 12:13 (incl. supplemental passages)

– Expositing the book of Romans brings us to a verse that is often times taken out of context and misapplied. However, there is a very important principle to be found within the context of this passage when the verse is properly applied. Said principle has to do with how we care for our brethren in need.

The True Church

Pastor Joe Schloegel – An exposition of Romans 12:9-12 (incl. supplemental passages)

– When a person puts their faith in Jesus Christ and becomes a Christian, they also become a member of God’s church and a part of the Lord’s family. An examination of Romans 12 and related passages shows us the ramifications of this new identity, and highlights our responsibilities as members of the Body.

Our Gifts and Our Responsibility

Pastor Joe Schloegel – An exposition of Romans 12:6-8 (incl. supplemental passages)

– With a proper knowledge and perspective of the grace gifts God gives us for use in service to Him and to each other, we must understand that with these gifts comes a responsibility not just that we use them, but that we use them properly. A deeper study of Romans 12 and supplemental passages informs us in the proper usage of these gifts.

For the Common Good

Pastor Joe Schloegel – An exposition of 1 Corinthians 12, 13, & 14 (incl. supplemental passages)

– In this sermon, Professor Joe Schloegel provides an expositional explanation and background of the differences between grace gifts and spiritual gifts within the church. We are given a Biblical perspective on the implementation and use of both types of gifts, and come to an understanding of what the ultimate purpose of these God-granted gifts is.

The Philippian Church

Guest Speaker: Caleb Abernathy – An exposition of Philippians 1 (incl. supplemental passages)

– Paul wrote many letters to many different churches, but he had an especially strong love for the church at Philippi. However, his love for this church is not necessarily based upon the people themselves, but on something else having to do with a Christian’s unique perspective. A study of this love that Paul has for the Philippians reveals an application for the church today.

Grace Gifts

Pastor Joe Schloegel – An exposition of Romans 12:3-8 (incl. supplemental passages)

– Each of the members of the church’s body has a function that is unique to them. In that spirit, God has bestowed grace gifts upon every believer to use in service to Him and to each other. But what are grace gifts, how are they identified, and what are their practical applications? A closer look at Romans 12 and a study of correlating passages yields encouraging instruction.
