Be all things to all people…
What did Paul mean when he said those words?
People feel the need to be “right”. What if being right is not the end goal?
What if we were willingly laid down our rights for the sake of the Gospel?
What may be ok in one setting may not be wise in another. Knowing WHEN and WHERE to do and say certain things may just be the difference between being an effective Kingdom Builder and not.
To the Christian, Gospel should matter more than any personal preferences or doctrinal nuances. Whatever it takes to share the Gospel and unite Christians in the name of Christ!

Leaven helps dough to rise. In and of itself, for baking purposes, it’s a good thing. But there’s a powerful lesson we learn about leaven from the Bible.
You see, once leaven enters in to dough, it’s nearly impossible to get it out. It will spread through the entire “lump” of dough. Ultimately, affecting the entire batch.
When it comes to sin, a little leaven will destroy the whole batch.
In this sermon from 1 Corinthians chapter 5 we find out how sin impacted the early church. Ultimately, we learn how to guard against the same happening to our church(es) today.

It’s everywhere we look.
What do people THINK when they see you? What do they FEEL when they think about you?
Nonbelievers will think of us as FOOLS. But that is NOT how we are to respond to the world.
The church in Corinth was concerned about who they followed, and what that said about them. Unfortunately, their brand of Christianity was less about Christ and more about the Rabbi that taught them about Jesus.
Pursuing a brand of Christianity, instead of Christ, can be dangerous. Paul likens that kind of wisdom to being the same as that of the world.
This sermon is for anyone who believes their BRAND of Christianity is better than others. Be careful.

Quite possibly the biggest paradox in all of Scripture – You can only win through losing.
The Bible clearly teaches us that we need to GIVE UP our life in order to FIND our life. But it just doesn’t make sense on the surface.
In this sermon, we learn how Jesus’ teaching about a seed helps us to better understand what it means to become completely undone so that what remains is so much more productive and fruitful than what began.
Alone, we are a singular seed. But when we fall to the earth and die – We produce much fruit. It’s a paradox – One that brings life.
Isn’t it time you LOSE so you can WIN?

Up is Down and Down is Up.
When it comes to our relationship with God, we need to think DOWN.
Humility is the key. Pride elevates self, and self is a dangerous four-letter word. The higher we stand the farther we fall.
In this sermon we learn about what Jesus has to say about our pride. We should boast in nothing… except Jesus.

The Greatest is the servant of all. Or… did Jesus actually say slave of all?
In this sermon from Mark 10:35-40 we learn exactly what Jesus taught us when He told us the greatest is the one who washes feet.
Why is that significant? Because Jesus set an example for us. And who is greater than their teacher? No one.

Enemies. We all seem to have them. We may not be able to give a great definition of who an enemy is, but we tend to know it if we have one. It can be tricky to know how to interact with and treat an enemy.
Thankfully, Jesus taught us what to do with enemies.
The words of Jesus can be challenging at times, but He says them for a reason.
What are we supposed to do with our enemies? Hint: It looks nothing like what anyone else teaches about enemies. In fact, it’s in such stark contrast it may be hard to believe. But when followed, we find the words of Jesus are true.

This sermon examines why God gave us the Holy Spirit. This long-awaited promise poured out upon the Early Church in Acts 2.
What are the “last days”? What were they to the early church?
This is the START OF THE CHURCH. Now God would dwell within us and through us.
This sermon is about the promise of this Holy Spirit from Joel freely given to us.
