    2019-11-24 The Sparks of Revival
    (1 Samuel 30:1-25)
    "The Sparks of Revival"
    Following Jesus will not always lead us on an easy path.  There will be times of unexpected difficulty and pain, but these occasions do not have to be set-backs spiritually.  Instead, they can become the sparks that actually ignite revival in our lives.

    2019-11-17 The Potential for Personal Revival
    (Judges 6:1-12)
    "The Potential for Personal Revival"
    Where is the revival in America today?  Why don't we see revival in the churches of America today?  These questions (and others) are answered in this message as we see how the Bible challenges individual Christians everywhere to not wait for their churches, their pastors, or their families, but to step into Personal Revival.

    2019-11-10 The Ruin & Restoration of Revival
    (Judges 3:12-15)
    "The Ruin & Restoration of Revival"
    Whatever has been ruined can also be restored!  Christians and churches should be aware that the presence of sin will cause the ruin of a revival, but whenever that sin is admitted and abandoned, then Jesus can again bring a restoration of revival!

    (Exodus 17:8-16)
    "The Enemies of Revival"
    Whatever God gives, Satan will work to "steal, kill, and destroy."  In this message, we learn how to defeat the inevitable challenges to revival that will come anytime the Holy Spirit begins to stir Christians and Churches to begin to be passionate about faith in Jesus Christ, rather than casual about our faith in Jesus Christ.

    2019-10-27 Preparing for Revival_Part 2
    (Ezekiel 12:21-28)
    "Preparing for Revival - Part 2"
    In this message, we hear about what a Christian, and what a Church should expect from God during a Revival.  During Ezekiel's time, the people of Israel had negative expectations about God - many Christians have the same today.  Often, we've been disappointed because we've expected the wrong things from God, but Ezekiel outlines what we should expect from God during a Revival.

    2019-10-20 Preparing for Revival – Part 1
    (Ezekiel 12:1-7)
    "Preparing for Revival - Part 1"
    Revival doesn't just happen, neither is it simply an emotional stirring.  Revival happens when Christians come alive to fullness of God's presence and power in their lives.  As Vineyard Assembly of God prepares for revival - it is important to be aware of several hindrances to revival that need to be addressed in our personal lives so that we can both individually and corporately experience revival.

    2019-10-13 Unseen But Not Unsung
    (Psalm 134)
    This Psalm celebrates the "night-shift workers" of every local church.  The people who do the unnoticed but absolutely necessary work of a church.  In this message of encouragement we are reminded that even if the work you do is unseen, unnoticed, and unappreciated by people - it is seen, noticed, appreciated, and will be rewarded by God!

    2019-09-29 A 100% Organic Church
    (Psalm 133)
    Everyone loves home-grown, garden-fresh, 100% organic vegetables!  They taste better and are healthier for you!  What about a 100% Organic Church?  A Church that has the unity it was meant to have because that unity isn't diluted by unnatural beliefs and practices that were never intended to have a place in a Church.  In this message, Pastor Matt challenges the church to be 100% Organic!

    2019-09-22 Sorry! No Fast-Food Faith
    (Psalm 132)
    Often, we want God to respond to our faith as quickly as we can get our order for fast-food.  We regard our faith as the currency for our transactions with God and we become frustrated when our faith doesn't yield the results we want when we want them.  Here in (Psalm 132) we learn some important lessons about what having a mature faith in God requires.

    2019-09-01 Two Effects of Getting Closer to God
    (Psalm 131)
    Often, when we think about getting closer to God, we expect to become more spiritual - to enjoy a higher level of answered prayers, breakthroughs, and power in our lives and ministries.  However, in (Psalm 131). there is a far different emphasis on humility and peace as the primary effects of getting closer to God.

    2019-08-25 From Gutter to Glory
    Psalm 130
    We thrill to hear stories of how people went from "rags to riches," but the fact is that if you are a follower of Jesus Christ then you have a better story!  You have gone and are going from "Gutter to Glory." As such, you have the ability to pray, to hope, and to encourage others as you travel the journey of life.

    2019-08-18 Finding Persistence & Purpose in Pain
    (Psalm 129)
    Unlike Western Culture which is obsessed with eliminating or minimizing pain - the Bible never avoids pain.  Many (even Christians) become angry with God when He doesn't remove pain from our lives.  The Bible is very clear that when we learn how to find persistence and purpose in pain that is when we discover a deeper, richer, and more mature faith in Jesus Christ!

    2019-08-11 A Better Life
    (Psalm 128)
    Every person has an instinctive desire for a better life because we intuitively know that life in this world isn't what it is supposed to be.  (Psalm 128) teaches us that happiness and satisfaction cannot be found anywhere our with anything or anyone in this world.  The Bible never promises a problem-free, pain-free life - but the Bible does tell us that following Jesus will give us the better life we're looking for!
