New Sermon Series - "1 Corinthians: To the church..."

Starting Jan 3, 2016, we will begin a new sermon series on Paul's 1st Letter to the Corinthians.  1 Corinthians has much to say to the modern world. No book in the New Testament, even Paul’s letter to the Romans, does more to explain the grace of God, the lordship of Christ, and the work of the Holy Spirit. In addition to supplying concrete answers to many p...

New Sermon Series - "Praying the Psalms"

There's no such thing as someone who cannot deepen their prayer life. Over the centuries, no book of the Bible has done a better job of that than the Psalms. The Psalms are the hymnbook and prayerbook of the Bible, and it’s the best place to get our vocabulary for prayer from. The Psalms force us to deal with God as he is, not as we wish he was. They teach us to p...

What is a Church Covenant?

This afternoon, the members of the church will be meeting for our quarterly members meeting. It's one of the primary ways that we provide member care for one another as we are updated on the life of the church as as individuals and as a whole. One of the first things that we do at our members meeting is read through our church covenant together and pray that God will ...

New Sermon Series - "The Christian Life" (Romans 5-8)

This Sunday, we will begin a new sermon series on "The Christian Life". Many Christians live every day not knowing how the Christian Life is to be lived. They ask questions like: How do I have peace with God? What does it mean to be united to Christ? Why do I still sin if I am a Christian? How to do I get victory in my struggle with sin? How do I know that I am s...

What is a Pastor?

Yesterday I had the privilege of preaching from 1 Peter 5:1-4 on "Shepherding the Flock". If there is much confusion today about what a church is, and even more confusion about what it means to be a member of a church, how much more confusion is to be expected about what it means to be a pastor of a church? God has not left us ignorant of the roles and responsibilities ...

Seven Ingredients for Healthy Sermon Listening

Here are seven ingredients for healthy sermon listening: 1. Expect God to speak. Look up next Sunday’s Bible passage and read it at home during the week. Pray for next Sunday’s preacher in the middle of the week. Pray often for yourself, that, by His Spirit, God will grow in you a heartfelt expectation that God Himself will speak to you as His word is pre...

Religion vs. Gospel

Last Sunday, I preached on Mark 2:23-3:6.  One of the points that I brought out from that text was that there is only two types of ways to be made right with God - theres religion and there's the Gospel.  Here are two videos of Tim Keller sharing the difference between Religion and The Gospel. Religion says "I obey, therefore God must accept me." The Go...

The Gospel of Mark Sermon Series

We're excited to announce that we will be preaching through the Gospel of Mark beginning January 5, 2014. The Gospel of Mark is the earlist written and shortest of the four gospels. You can read through the entire book in about 40 minutes. Here are a few highlights that we find in the Gospel of Mark: Mark is very much a tell-it-like-it-is sort of Gospel, and actions...

"The Explicit Gospel" - Begins Dec 1

We're excited to announce our next Sermon Series titled "The Explicit Gospel". Even if you go to church, it doesn’t mean that you are being exposed (or exposing others) to the gospel explicitly. Sure, most people talk about Jesus, and about being good and avoiding bad, but the gospel message simply isn’t there—at least not in its specificity and its fu...

The Dearest Place on Earth

“Give yourself to the Church. You that are members of the Church have not found it perfect and I hope that you feel almost glad that you have not. If I had never joined a Church till I had found one that was perfect, I would never have joined one at all! And the moment I did join it, if I had found one, I should have spoiled it, for it would not have been a perfect C...

It is with great joy that I share with you the burden and call that the Lord has given me for a new church in the Hampton Roads, VA area. Even though I grew up in NYC, Hampton Roads is home for me. It was in Hampton Roads that I served in the US Navy from 2000-2004, was married in 2003, but most importantly, became a Christian in 2002. Over the last 6 years, I served with ...
