It’s a big, religious-sounding word. But it can be clearly stated, and easily understood.
It’s NOT what we do to make ourselves better. It’s NOT earning favor with God. It’s NOT doing things perfectly. Those things aren’t possible.
Salvation is what God has freely done for us. It’s a free gift. It’s the atoning sacrifice of Christ.
The Bible is clear. There is NOTHING we can do to earn our salvation.
Our part is faith. Faith in a God who has already accomplished everything that is necessary for salvation.
In this sermon we explore the ins and outs of biblical “salvation”.

Series: Making CENTS of Money
How you see God informs what we do with money. Or, better yet, what does with us.
Some people are raised with a Prosperity Gospel mindset. Some are raised with a Prosperity Gospel mindset. It all comes from our Theology – Or our understanding of who God is.
It’s interesting how two different Christians can look at the same passage and come away with wildly different takeaways, depending on their understanding of God.
When it comes to Finances, we can find ourselves in an unsettling place if we allow ourselves to have an extreme view of money.
In this sermon, we look at how our Theology impacts our relationship with money, and how to have the healthiest view of money we can possibly have.

Tim and Mike share about a man named Simeon.
Simeon is a oft-forgotten part of the Christmas story. But Luke finds him a significant piece of it.
Simeon was given the task of “Blessing” the Messiah. And he was given a promise that he would see the “Consolation Of Israel”. Remember, Israel had been through so much. And they have been crying out for the long-awaited messiah for literally hundreds upon hundreds of years.
Waiting on God can be hard. But God knows what He’s doing, and when He needs to do it.
In this sermon find out how The Messiah was the encouragement of Israel as well as Salvation for the Jew and the Gentile.

Sometimes life is good. In fact, sometimes life is VERY good. One could say, “A mountaintop experience.”
But what is a mountaintop experience of life? How do we know it’s truly a mountaintop and not a butte (A false mountaintop)?
In this sermon, we look at the very first Christmas in Luke 2:1-7.
Likely, this was a mountaintop experience for Mary as she held the son of God in her hands and placed him in the manger. What we learn from Mary provides some insight in to what we should do when we are on the mountain.
The important thing for us to remember: God is with us when we’re on the mountain.

Why did the author write the book of John? What was his goal?
In this sermon who look at John 20:30-31. In this verses John tells us exactly why he wrote the book.
The resurrection – This is the event John uses to explain why he wrote the entire book.
John could not be more clear as to his intent. Mary Magdalene, Doubting Thomas and Peter all had their own one on one encounters with Jesus post-resurrection. Find out what their encounters with Jesus teach us about the whole purpose of this book.

Have you ever found yourself asking the question, “God, why would you allow me to go through so much hardship?”
In John 15 we find an analogy of a vineyard. God is the Gardener. Jesus is the Vine. His disciples are the branches.
The job of the Branch is to produce fruit. The Gardener will do everything He can to make sure the Branch does exactly that. He prunes and he prunes until the harvest.
It’s brutal, but the end result is beautiful!

We all have assumptions.
Unfortunately, our assumptions can have a negative impact on the people around us if we’re not careful.
In this story from John 9-10 we find a man born blind. Jesus heals the man, but what happens throughout the story is assumption after assumption that leads to the man getting kicked out of the synagogue.
So how do we assume well? How can we make sure we don’t hurt others like the man in the story?
This sermon dives in to the power of assumptions, why assumptions impact people, and how we can assume well.

A Changed People are a grateful people. That’s what we see in John 4-5.
Jesus takes an outcast woman… and gives her a sense of belonging.
Jesus takes and elite official… and turns him in to a humble follower.
Jesus takes a lifelong invalid… and validates him.
