Low Point

How heavy is your cross? Jesus calls us to pick up our cross and follow him. We’ll look at the ministry of the Prophet Jeremiah. If being thrown into a pit sounds bad, there is even something worse.

Gain the Whole World

If you could gain the whole world, would you give up your soul?  That’s a pretty easy question to answer for the veteran Christian.  There is nothing more important than our soul.  Where we spend eternity is far more important than anything else in life.

Church Militant

“The church shall never perish, her dear Lord to defend…” The struggle is real. That isn’t the cry from a clueless middle schooler; it’s the groan of the Christian church. Jesus defends us from struggles everyday. From an outsiders perspective the church doesn’t look unified at all. But the Holy Christian Church is safe behind the almighty power of our Lord. We have all that we need in the word of God.

Above All Things

The life of a Christian can be ordinary, but don’t let the world fool you. This Sunday we begin a new sermon series – The Extraordinary Ordinary Life of a Christian. In this first message from the Gospel of Matthew we’ll see how a Christian loves God above all things. That isn’t flashy. You won’t make the papers for bearing your cross. At the end of it all, God promises a reward.

Wise Up

There is a cost to everything in life.  When it comes to learning in the school of hard knocks there are only two ways to learn.  From your pain or someone else’s pain.  Which would you choose?  We finish out our four week series Weeks of Warning under the theme Cost.  Jesus tells us that life under his cross of suffering will have a very real cost to it.  That doesn’t mean it isn’t worth it.  The warning is that it won’t always be easy.  The comfort is that we are never alone with him by our side.

Christian Duty

What does duty look like? Often maybe we think of people who have served in the military. Possibly the image of a servant comes to mind. The life of a Christian can be hard to understand apart from the grace of God.
