Last week we covered incredibly, objectively, and conclusively proof that there must be a God. On this Easter Morning, we will look at evidence as to why this God must be Jesus.
In this year's Easter message Pastor Doug shows how Jesus fulfilled Old Testament prophesies written hundreds of years before his birth and how religious as well as secular history support the narrative recorded in the Gospels.
In this message Pastor Doug presents the growing scientific evidence for an intelligent creation to the universe and why we as Christians do not simply have to rely on blind faith to explain our beliefs.
Note: Due to technical difficulties a portion in the middle of the sermon is missing.
This week, we will quickly look at overwhelming evidences that scream: "There must be a God—there must be a Creator!" And next week, for Easter Sunday, we will look at overwhelming evidences for, "Why that God must be Jesus Christ!"
How important to others was your giving your heart to Jesus? How important were the events leading up to that moment? How important are the events in your life that shaped your walk? How do you witness? Preaching on a soapbox? Or living your life as a witness to others and letting the life you live show them that you’re different from the world?
Don Kinser shares his story with us this week - to tell us how he came to follow Christ, and more importantly that it is the love of God in and through us that matters.
"With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility!" From where have most of you become acquainted with this popular saying? Spiderman, of course! This quote actually surfaced in a Spidey Comic way back in 1962. But the saying goes much farther back than Spiderman. Possibly as far back as The French Revolution, when The French National Convention was elected to provide a new constitution after the overthrow of the monarch in 1792, and comparable quotes were given by several powerful leaders since then, including Winston Churchill, Teddy Roosevelt and Franklin D. Roosevelt. But in reality, this quote goes much farther back, to a much Wiser Source: Luke 12:48.
Last week we talked about how the hard times which come our way as Christians are powerful opportunities to grow in Christ and unique chances to prove our faith to a lost world. But many verses of Scripture speak of a very specific kind of struggle which the Christians of the early church were experiencing—trials which came as a direct result of their love and obedience to Christ. Trials which threatened their reputations, their way of life and their very lives.
Persecution in the ancient church didn't start from the top (the government), it originated at the bottom ... the people that surrounded the new Christians. Day by day we see this same persecution growing in our lives. How are we as Christians supposed to respond? And how can we ever have the courage to take the sort of abuse the church took in the first centuries?
How Many of you have watched a fellow Christian fall away from the faith in difficult times in their life? They’ve either lost faith in God’s existence or worse, lost faith in God’s goodness and love for them.
God has clearly told us there will be times of trouble and suffering in our lives as Christians, even stating these sufferings will increase because of our choice to serve Him. God does not always bring testing and hard times in our lives, often it is a direct result of evil in this world, or a result of the effects of a fallen and cursed creation, or a direct attack from Satan, or even sometimes it is a self-inflicted effect of not living a devoted life to God and His precepts.
