Politics and Injustice (Part 2)

Pastor Matt Tarr – AM Sermon

Scripture: Mark 15:1-15

The Jews bring Pilate Jesus in order that He might be officially condemned so that His trial might look justified in the eyes of history. However, although Pilate is willing to condemn Jesus to death for the sake of his own political expediency, the only official verdict he can issue is that the Son of Man is innocent, and died an unjustified death at the hands of sinners.

Missionary Update: Charlie and Gai Jewell

PM Sermon

On the evening of March 26th, 2017, we were blessed by a visit and update from Charlie and Gai Jewell, our missionaries to Central African Republic. Since this was not a traditional “sermon” and was more so a testimony and update on the Jewells’ ministry efforts abroad, the audio for the 3/26 Evening Service will not be posted on the SermonCast. However, the audio will be made available to anyone upon request. If you would like to request a download link, please submit a request to our web team.

Thank you for showing interest in High Point Baptist Church’s pulpit ministry.

Sin, and How We Deal With It

HPBC Elder: Tom Joyce – PM Sermon

Scripture: Selected Scriptures

What is Sin? Where does it come from? How do we deal with it? The world’s ideas about sin are contrasted with what the Bible and Church Fathers have to say about it, and it is only through a full knowledge of the nature of sin that we can hope overcome its effects in our life.

 

Counsel for the Sufferer

HPBC Elder: Greg Lynch – AM Sermon

Scripture: Lamentations 3:21-42

In Lamentations 3, we find theological and practical instruction on how to cope with God’s chastening. The message zeroes in on seven key words and concepts in this chapter, including three attributes of God— loyal love, compassion, and righteousness—and four attitudes sufferers should manifest—waiting upon God, submission toward God, confession of sin, and repentance.

Commissioned to Disciple

Guest Speaker: Pastor Jason Harris – PM Sermon

Scripture: Matthew 28:18-20

As Christ prepares His ascension to the Father all authority in heaven and earth is placed behind this final command: A call to fellowship with the Trinity in the work of making disciples of Jesus Christ.

The Unrighteous Made Righteous

Guest Speaker: Dr. Bill Arp – AM Sermon

Scripture: Romans 3:21-26

How can God be established as righteous when He is declaring unrighteous people righteous? This is a very important question, and one that is answered by a thorough examination of the Apostle Paul’s explanation of righteousness by way of faith.

The Foolishness of the Church

Pastor Matt Tarr – PM Sermon

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:26-31

When Christ builds His church, He builds it contrary to everything the world counts as valuable and important, and the church is left with nothing left than to give glory to God.

God’s Gospel Foolishness (Part 3)

Pastor Matt Tarr – PM Sermon

Scripture:  1 Corinthians 1:21-29

The church in Corinth was failing as a church, but it wasn’t because they had errant theology or the wrong gospel. Rather, their theology and gospel proclamation was simplistic, and their philosophy of ministry was entertainment driven. However, Paul explains God’s design for the proclamation of His gospel.
