Our words matter. In fact, the words we use have much greater significance than many of us could ever know. They can bring life, or they can tear people down. In this sermon we learn about the power of words. We have a choice - Find out how YOU can choose to use the right words. Find out how to say what you need to say, in a way that will glorify God. This isn't always easy. And it does mean putting Scripture in to practice. But it can be done. Aren't we glad when we choose to use the right words at the right time?

Parenting is hard. In fact, there is no such thing as a perfect parent. Outside of God, Himself, of course! On top of that, we all have different parenting styles. Some may be better than others, but no one style is the "right" style. So, how do we know we're parenting correctly? How do we know we have done the best job once they become an adult? Thankfully, the Word of God teaches us about priority. It teaches us what's most important in parenting. We may not be able to get everything right, but what if we could get the most important things right when it comes to parenting? In this sermon we learn that goal - And God's Word teaches us how to get there!

Topic: Spiritual Disciplines
Solitude, prayer, fasting, and journaling. These are all things we, as Christians, should do. Yet, it has nothing to do with our salvation. In this sermon from Hebrews 12:1-5 we lean why we should engage in these spiritual disciplines. Rooted in Scripture, these practices help bring us closer to God. This sermon on Practical Spiritual Disciplines we examine the practical approach to spiritual growth; a help in teaching us how we can be, and stay, in a strong and developing relationship with God. We can't earn our salvation - but we can run the race well!

In this sermon find out what those questions are, and what the Bible teaches us about each one of these questions. The bottom line: When we truly have a Biblical Worldview, it informs the way we perceive the world and everything in it. And it informs how we live our day to day life.

In the same token, there are things we may attribute to the Holy Spirit that simply is not accurate of the Holy Spirit. This sermon is designed to bring clarity to who the Holy Spirit is, and what His role is in our lives.
