  • Discipleship and the Cross

    Michael Petillo

    In order to be His disciple, Jesus said to deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Him. The cross is essential for the Christian, yet many churches hardly speak about it. The cross is not some burden we must bear in our own strength in order to prove how devout we are—not even Jesus carried His own cross. It is a place of humbling descent where we must rely fully on God and others. Like Jesus, you may feel forsaken at the cross, but fear not, God is with you. And you will need others, like Jesus needed Simon, to carry your cross with you.

  • Faith on Fire

    Gary Wilkerson

    Date Preached: 
    November 13, 2016

    What is the mark of a true Christian disciple? Is it someone who reads their Bible daily, prays dutifully and fast religiously? Not necessarily—many are dutiful and religious. A true disciple is one who falls deeply in love with Jesus and has a genuine concern for Christ’s church. Reading from 2 Timothy, Pastor Gary Wilkerson encourages the church that it is possible to be a true disciple. When we focus on Jesus, the true disciple-maker, He will fill us with a faith that is on fire and we will truly live for Him!

  • Eternity

    Michael Petillo

    Date Preached: 
    November 6, 2016

    Sadly much of the church today doesn't talk about Eternity or even know much about it. Pastor Michael Petillo encourages the church to ask the Holy Spirit for an eternal focus. If we don't have our eyes fixed on Eternity we will struggle through the temporal difficulties that we face in this life. We may not see it here and now, but all that we go through will bring eternal glory to God.

  • The Compromised Religion In A Corrupted Time

    Carter Conlon

    Date Preached: 
    November 6, 2016

    Do you have a deep desire to be a clean vessel for God? Are you willing to put away evil practices, ungodly relationships, and unclean speech? If we regard iniquity in our heart and give place to wrong behavior God will not hear our prayers, but if we order our conduct God will command a blessing and cause us to bring glory to His name. True prayer will bring honor to Jesus Christ again. We are desperate for a spiritual awakening and it’s the only thing that will save this nation. We must find our unity at the Cross and trust God for the power to look and sound more like Jesus.

  • Hope

    Michael Petillo

    Date Preached: 
    October 30, 2016

    All of creation and the Holy Spirit are groaning. Things are not as they should be and we long to see the fulfillment of God's promises. What is God's answer to our groaning? Hope. He desires to place within His people a living hope that causes us to sing no matter what difficulties come our way. This hope can only come about when we allow God to conform us into the image of His Son, Jesus Christ.
