Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.

    2017-08-20 Hosea & Gomer Hope for a Damaged Marriage
    The greatest challenge to any marriage is the past of the couple.  Sometimes, the sins of the past return in some way to damage the present marriage.  However, there is HOPE!  Hosea & Gomer had a marriage damaged by adultery, but by demonstrating the love and forgiveness of God, Hosea was able to reclaim his estranged wife Gomer, and they saw their marriage restored.

    2017-08-13 Ananias & Sapphira The Un-Christian Christian Marriage
    Being a Christian and being married to a Christian doesn't guarantee a good marriage.  Christian marriages can become "un-Christian" when particular patterns of behavior are allowed to enter that marriage and persist in that marriage.  However, there is a way out through turning in faith to Jesus and though that faith taking the steps needed to bring God's healing and blessing into your marriage.

    2017-08-06 Ahab & Jezebel The Bizarro Marriage
    In the cartoons and comics, Bizarro Superman was the opposite of the real Superman.  A Bizarro Marriage is a marriage where (in any area) the priorities, morals, convictions, and actions of the couple are the inverse of what God says they should be in His Word.  In this message, Pastor Matt takes a look at an extremely Bizarro marriage in the Bible - and discovers how we can discern "bizarro spirituality" in our own marriages.

    2017-07-30 David & Michal A Good Marriage Gone Bad
    King David was "a man after God's own heart," and his wife Michal loved him deeply.  We tend to think as Christians that as long as a marriage has love and godliness it will be a guaranteed success.  However, the marriage of David and Michal began well but ended badly.  Every marriage runs this risk, however, there are steps that can be taken to prevent this from happening.

    2017-07-23 Elkanah & Hannah A Good Marriage Made Glorious
    In this message, we see what ingredients are necessary for making an already good marriage into a glorious marriage - meaning, a marriage that brings glory to God.  With this message comes a strong word of teaching and healing for marriages that have been wounded by anxiety and a malformed perception of personal self-worth.  God created marriage - God knows how to heal marriages!

    Jul 9, 2017
    2017-07-09 Nabal & Abigail The Mismatched Marriage
    In this message, one of the Bible's "ugly marriages" is examined.  You will see that it is a marriage where the surface looked perfect, but at home there was intense selfishness, attitude problems, and even abuse.  However, as terrible as these things are the main problem with the marriage of Nabal and Abigail was that they were mismatched from the very beginning of their marriage - as she was a believer in God and her husband Nabal wasn't.

    2017-07-02 Isaac & Rebekah The Flaw of Double-Vision
    Continuing this series, Pastor Matt takes a look at a "Bad" marriage of the Bible - the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah.  Some marriages, even some Christian marriages start so well with the blessing of God, but gradually tear themselves apart because the husband and wife each pursue a different vision of what they want their family, their lives to look like.  This is the Flaw of Double-Vision.  In this message, we learn what to look for so we can learn what to avoid.

    Too often, we settle for "good enough," especially in our marriages.  In this first message of this series, Pastor Matt takes a look at a good marriage in the Bible that became a great marriage - the marriage of Aquila & Priscilla - and through them, we learn how to develop all of our marriages into great marriages!

    2017-05-28 The Breeze & The Blaze
    On the Day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit was poured out upon the Early Church, God chose to manifest the presence of the Holy Spirit through two, unique symbols that were never repeated again - the sound of a strong wind and tongues of fire.  Together, these two symbols teach us some key insights about what we're to expect when the Holy Spirit moves in a church and in a community.

    2017-05-21 An Exercise of Faith
    Everything in the Christian life is about having faith in God - period.  Although everyone has different needs and situations that require faith, every Christian has the need to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.  Jesus designed this particular need to be an universal "Exercise of Faith" for every Christian believer.

    2017-05-14 Jesus Said – The Holy Spirit is with You
    "Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me" was King David's most intense prayer and greatest desire.  We sometimes focus so much on the power that the Holy Spirit gives, that we forget about the presence of the Holy Spirit.  He is a person.  He is God.  He is incredibly interested in helping us reach our maximum potential because He loves us!

    2017-05-07 What Prophets Preach
    One of the keynote themes of the preaching of John the Baptist was that Jesus would baptize his church in the Holy Spirit.  The Church all around the world is expanding through the power of the presence of the Holy Spirit - except in the West.  Can it be that Western Churches have neglected the qualities that are needed to receive and respond to the Holy Spirit?

    2017-04-30 A Prophet’s Wish and a Prophetic Word
    Many think of the Holy Spirit as just a "force" or "power" that Christians can tap into.  The Holy Spirit is a person - God Himself, and in the Old Testament two prophets expressed God's plan for the Holy Spirit to made available to every Christian.  This wish and this word from these two prophets form the foundation of our understanding of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.  That God desires to immerse each Christian in Himself - and through His Presence, provide the power we need to represent Jesus Christ to the fullest.

    2017-04-16 Jesus, The God Who Won’t Stay Dead
    The claim that Jesus rose from the dead after being crucified and buried is Christianity's most crucial and controversial claim.  Which is why human ingenuity, authority, and legality has worked together to try to keep Jesus dead in the hearts and minds of people everywhere.  This fact has made Christianity the world's most persecuted religion, but also points to the inescapable truth of Christianity - that Jesus is ALIVE!

    2017-04-09 Palms, Praise, and People
    The same crowd that had shouted praises and laid palms at Jesus' feet later demanded his crucifixion.  Why?  Sometimes we become disappointed and embittered with God when it appears He hasn't fulfilled His promises or answered our prayers when and how we would prefer Him to do so.  When this happens deep in our hearts our praise begins to fade and our palms wither.  However, there is a way to avoid this!
