Angels: Who They Are and What They Do 12-17-2017

December 18, 2017


This time of year, we hear a lot about the angels appearing to the shepherds to tell of the Savior's birth. 

Who are these angels?

Throughout Scripture, angels were sent to aid believers and punish the wicked (some examples can be seen in Acts 5 & 12). 

At Christ's birth, they were sent to pronounce the incarnation of God and to bring a message of peace. But not everyone can receive this peace. This peace is only for those who accept the Gospel. 

Do you have peace because you know Jesus?

The real meaning of Christmas is that you can know peace and be forgiven.


Sermon on the Mount: Make Sure You Are in the Kingdom 11-26-2017

December 5, 2017

In this sermon, Marty preaches on Matthew 7:13-23 & the Kingdom of God. 

How do you enter into the Kingdom of God?

When you accept Christ, you have to be willing to surrender yourself to Him.


Sermon on the Mount: Murder Begins in the Heart 11-19-2017

December 4, 2017

Sermon on the Mount: Adultery 11-5-2017

November 14, 2017

Marriage is a covenant relationship before God and must be protected. 

Adultery is not only physical but can be mental as well. Matthew 5:28 says, "But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart."

If something cannot be righteously fulfilled, you should not be thinking about it. What you allow in your heart will eventually be done with your hands.

Proverbs 4:23 says, "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it."

You must fight for and protect your marriage.

Sermon on the Mount: You Can Be Blessed 10-08-2017

October 23, 2017

What does it mean to be blessed?

To be blessed means to have a deep sense of well-being independent of our circumstances. To truly be able to rest.

In Matthew 5 in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells people how they can be blessed. 

We must hunger and thirst after righteousness. Christ must be our ambition.

Live from the Heart 8-13-2017

August 17, 2017

God sees your heart and that's what counts. He sees your motivation, the things you dwell on, and what's on the throne of your heart. The heart determines what your hands will do. What is going on in your heart? Is there anything you're unwilling to give to the Lord?
