Good evening beloved!

Tomorrow we are going to look at part two of “The Real Miracle of Christmas” in the familiar portion of Luke 1:26-38, 46-56 which describes the angel Gabriel’s prophecy to Mary who had found favor with God as the one whom He chose to give birth to His Son, Jesus Christ the Lord!

BAND OF BROS, tomorrow , December 14th, 9am at 3 Baristas 9am!

Have you ever wondered what does it mean to be a man after God’s own heart? How can I please the Lord in the job, home, neighborhood, relationships and friendships that He has Sovereignly placed us? In other words, what are the marks of a man of God?

The apostle Paul answers those important questions for us and gives us practical guide posts for each of our lives to follow in living a life that bears the fruit of the gospel! Our text we will be looking at is 1 Timothy 6:3-20. Though none of us have arrived at this high standard, may we make it our prayerful goal every day to be His men! Amen?

Hope you can join us!

He Remembers Our Sin No More!

He Remembers Our Sin No More!

by Charles Spurgeon “When we know the Lord, we receive the forgiveness of sins. We know Him as the God of grace, passing by our transgressions. What a joyful discovery is this!”

Be Imitators of God (pt 1) (Ephesians 5:1-6)

Be Imitators of God (pt 1) (Ephesians 5:1-6)

Pastor Steve expounds Ephesians 5:1-6 on the theme of ‘Be Imitators of God.” This is a profound passage of God’s Word which focuses on the characteristics of true love, the characteristics of counterfeit love and the consequences of it. May our Lord strengthen your hearts and minds through this message to live boldly for Jesus!

Church Restoration – The Grace of Restoring Those Who Fall

Church Restoration – The Grace of Restoring Those Who Fall

Why is Church Restoration an all but forgotten grace in the contemporary church in America? It is a biblical command by Christ Himself (Matthew 18:15-20) and the Apostle Paul (Galatians 6:1-3, Romans 16:17, 1 Cor 5:5, 2 Thess 3:13-15, Titus 3:9-11). I hope this article will ignite your heart to lovingly restore those who are fallen into sin (James 5:20).

Practical Godliness (Ephesians 4:25-32)

Practical Godliness (Ephesians 4:25-32)

Pastor Steve concludes the fourth chapter of Ephesians in expositing Ephesians 4:25-32 on the theme of “Practical Godliness.” This is the Apostle Paul’s admonition to not grieve the Holy Spirit as the people of God but to live in forgiveness with each other through practical evidences of a changed life.

You Alone are Holy, Rev 15:1-4

You Alone are Holy, Rev 15:1-4

This is the highest of all the attributes of our God – holiness!

Holiness is the very excellency of the Divine nature: the great God is “glorious in holiness” (Ex. 15:11). He only is independently, infinitely, immutably holy. In Scripture He is frequently styled “The Holy One”: He is so because the sum of all moral excellency is found in Him. He is absolute Purity, unsullied even by the shadow of sin. His holiness is the very antithesis of all moral blemish or defilement. Of old, God appointed singers in Israel “that they should praise for the beauty of holiness” (2 Chron. 20:21). “Power is God’s hand or arm, omniscience His eye, mercy His bowels, eternity His duration, but holiness is His beauty” (Stephen Charnock).
