Meditating on God's Word
The blessed man in Psalm 1 is said to be one who meditates in God's law day and night. Paul instructed Timothy: "Study to show thyself approved unto God." Are we reading, studying, and thinking about God's word? We should be.
For He is Risen
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the story of His death, His burial, and His resurrection. We can die with Him in baptism, crucifying the old worldly person we were and rise up from that watery grave to live a new life in Him. His resurrection gives us hope in this life of eternal life with Him in Heaven. We invite you to listen to our Sunday sermon on April 1st that looked at the paradox of the prophecy of a Savior who would die and establish an eternal kingdom, becoming Lord of lords and King of kings: For He is Risen.
In All Good Conscience
Paul told the Jewish Council that he had lived in all good conscience, even though he had not believed Jesus to be the Christ and had sought to do many things against His name. How do we train our conscience in truth and then live without violating our conscience? We invite you to listen to the sermon titled, "In All Good Conscience."
The Road Less Traveled
Jesus taught of a broad way and a narrow way, saying that the narrow way leads to heaven. He added that few find it. Are we walking the road less traveled?
A New Commandment
Jesus gave His disciples a new commandment at the last Passover He observed with them. He told them to love one another as He had loved them. There is a progression of love taught in the Bible: love your neighbor, love your enemies, love as Christ loves us. This is a mark of true discipleship.
The Blessed of Revelation
Seven times in the book of Revelation, there is a pronouncement regarding the blessed of God. We invite you to listen to a sermon by the title, The Blessed of Revelation, on our sermon page. When God reveals to us who is blessed, it behooves us to pay very close attention.
The Will to Do His Will
Jesus said, "If any man will to do his will, he shall know the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself" (John 7:17). No special intervention is needed by the Holy Ghost. If we have the will to do His will, we can know the doctrine of Christ, that it is His, and that we can be saved by loving Him and keeping His commandments (John 14:15). We invite you to listen to the sermon titled, "The Will to Do His Will."
Most all miracles in the Scripture are benevolent: the blind see, the deaf hear, the lame walk, etc. But some are not benevolent. We invite you to listen to a sermon about An Unusual Miracle.
Time and How We Use It
How are we spending our time? Are we redeeming it for the Lord? Will God reward us with a home with Him when time here runs out? The last two sermons added speak to these questions. One is titled, "Time." The other is, "In the Face of Death." Jesus taught the Christians in Smyrna to be faithful until death. How much more would He expect us to be faithful in the face of peer pressure and the like? What are we doing with our time? We invite you to listen to these two sermons.
Away With You Satan
Our goal as disciples of Jesus is to be like Him, to avoid sin in our lives, and to be found acceptable by Him. What is your plan to avoid temptation, to deal with it? We invite you to listen to a short sermon on that question: Dealing With Temptation.
New Year Resolutions
The beginning of a new year marks the end of an old one. It is a time when many take stock of life and resolve to accomplish certain goals. Let God be at the forefront of all our decisions. We invite you to come join us for Bible study, worship, and to discipleship of Jesus Christ.
Do You Know Jesus?
The apostle John wrote, "Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments" (1 John 2:3). Do you know Jesus? We invite you to listen to a sermon on our sermons page titled, "Knowing God & Jesus."
God of the Hills and Valleys
The Syrians thought the Lord God was God of only the hills when Israel defeated them in 1 Kings 20, so God sent a prophet to Israel's king saying, "Because the Syrians have said, 'The LORD is God of the hills, but he is not God of the valleys, therefore will I deliver all this great multitude into thine hand, and ye shall know that I am the LORD'" (1 Kings 20:28). God will see us through the hills and valleys of our lives too, if we will trust and obey. We invite you to listen to a sermon on this topic, "The God of the Hills and of the Valleys."
Of Whom the World Isn't Worthy
The writer of Hebrews speaks of those who accomplished much by faith and who suffered much because of their faith. The world tends to look at Godly people as oddities and misfits, but God looks at the faithful as people of whom the world is not worthy. We invite you to listen to a short sermon on this topic. We invite you to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.
Observing the Lord's Supper Memorial
May a few in an assembly observe the Lord's Supper? The Sunday morning lesson October 29th looked at the view of those who say no. The Sunday afternoon lesson October 29th looked at the view of those who say yes. We invite you to listen to these two sermons. They are not the last word by any means, but rather an effort to put the views of brethren forth as well as possible. May God help understand the truth.
You Also Be Ready
There is a need to be ready - ready always. The examples of the faithful in scripture are of people who were ready to obey. Abram left his home, not knowing where he was going. Are we ready? This past Sunday's morning sermon looked at the kind of faith that is ready to obey, ready to suffer, ready to overcome this world. We invite you to listen.
What is Your Life?
We've added two lessons about life on earth. One looks at what our lives are and what will we do with this gift from God, and the other looks at the idea of choosing the better things in life from a scriptural viewpoint. We invite you to listen and reason with us about life under the sun.

Dealing With The Truth
Paul had a lot of success in his first missionary journey through Galatia. Many people were converted to Jesus Christ. He had been overcome with some kind of infirmity in his travel and had remained in Galatia. The people had been wonderful to him, begging him to stay with them. When he writes Galatians, many of these have been turned to a false doctrine. As Paul writes to them, entreating them to return to Christ, he asked, "Have I become your enemy because I tell you the truth?" We should always be open to truth and be ready to hear criticism or correction gracefully. The sermon titled, "Have I Become Your Enemy?" deals with this idea. We invite you to listen to it or any one of the sermons on our website.
Motivation & Discipleship
God motivates us in many ways: fear of punishment, hope of eternal life, and calling for our love. Which is the best motivation? Listen to the sermon that answers this question. It is from a Sewell Hall outline and encourages us in our walk with God in Christ. Also, who are we following? Are we following the wishes of family, a preacher, a popular author, or are we truly following Jesus? This sermon is also available: Who Are We Following? We invite you to reason with us from the Bible.
People do not want to be told how to dress. Sadly, many Christians seem to have that same attitude. Clothing does matter, though. And the Bible instructs us in how we ought to dress just as in every other aspect of life. We invite you to reason with us from God's word on this question. A new sermon is posted titled, "The Attire of a Christian." We must please God in all we do if we are to be His children in Christ.
That You May Obtain
As a boy I was often reminded by the adults around me that attitude was the difference in success and failure at so many things. Knowledge was essential. Effort was required. But the difference for so many comes down to the attitude with which we approach our lives. Paul touches on this idea in 1 Corinthians 9:24: "Run in such a way that you may obtain..." A sermon on this topic has just been uploaded. Take a listen.
We'd welcome your visit to our assembly or to our website. Come meet us, or peruse our website. Feel free to contact us.
Your Father the Devil
Jesus called the Jewish religous leaders children of the devil in John 8:44. Could He say that of us? Yes, if we believe Satan's lies and live our lives deceived. The sermon titled "Your Father the Devil" begins with Jesus saying, "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do." It continues looking at lies the devil propagates in the world still today. The lesson titled "The Love of God" is a follow up.
Addictions, Piercings, Tattoos
We have several new sermons uploaded. Take a few minutes and listen to sermons dealing with addictions or with piercing and tattoos. Reason with us from scripture.
