The Gospel of the Son of God

Pastor Matt Tarr – An exposition of Mark 1:1

– Opening up the Bible to Mark’s Gospel (an oft overlooked Gospel), we arrive at the statement that this is “The beginning of the Good News of Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Mark 1:1).” In this brief verse can be found a great deal of Truth as we are forced to ask the question: What is the Gospel?

Worship the King

Pastor Matt Tarr – An exposition of Matthew 2:1-12

– The birth of Christ had been met with indifference and even outright rejection by Israel. And yet, a group of magi from Medo-Persia were not only diligently looking for the coming of Messiah, but they diligently sought Him out to worship Him upon recognizing His coming. In light of this passage about a group of heretical Gentiles giving more attention to the Advent than the hyper-religious Jews, the Christian is challenged to ask themselves whether they simply know of Jesus, or if they actually worship Him as He deserves.

The Conception of the Messiah

Pastor Matt Tarr – An exposition of Matthew 1:18-25

– The virgin conception and birth of Jesus Christ is one of the most important doctrines in the Christian faith, as only One who is fully God and fully man could be capable of bringing the salvation that God offers us through the sacrifice of our Lord. In this study of Christ’s genealogy, which proves His lineage as King, and n the miraculous events surrounding His conception, we are given the greatest reason for joy during the Christmas season.

The Mindset of the Mature

Pastor Greg Lynch – An exposition of Philippians 3:12-16 (incl. supplemental passages)

– Sanctification is a long and sometimes difficult process all Christians undergo as we strive to become more Christ-like. But we should not be deterred. We should always focus on the goal and run the race as hard as we can, which should be the mindset of those who are mature in the faith.

“You Cannot Be My Disciple Unless…”

Pastor Greg Lynch – An exposition of Luke 14:26-34

– Following Jesus Christ comes with a cost. And although it’s something that is often overlooked in mainstream Christianity, Christ Himself made no secret that following Him would ensure we face persecution and hardship, and He urges us to count the cost and examine our motivations before we go after Him.

Gifts of the Father

Pastor Greg Lynch – A topical sermon

– The Father has bestowed upon us many gifts both through Himself and through the work of Christ. Most of these gifts are received with thankfulness, but some are often overlooked. Still, all are undeniably important and should be accepted with the utmost gratitude.

Are You Resting or Wrestling?

Pastor Greg Lynch – A topical sermon

– There are two views of religion in the world. One tells you that you need to work as hard as you possibly can to try and earn favor from God. The other tells you that you can’t earn God’s favor, but also that He has already done the work for you, and all you need to do is rest at His feet. Which spectrum do you fall under?
