  • How Prayers Turn to Praise - Psalm 28

    Gary Wilkerson

    What is the prayer that you want to turn into praise? In this sermon, Gary Wilkerson explores how scripture leads us into a deeper understanding of fervent and effectual prayer. When we're struggling with overwhelming circumstances, we can be caught by wondering if God's silence is because he's saying no to our request. Despite all our doubts, this is the time to press forward, seeking the Lord's presence.

  • Do Not Love the World (1 John 2:15-17)

    Joshua West

    The Bible talks about God's great love at great length, but how does this truth weave together with God's judgment and his commands for us to not love the world? In this sermon, Joshua West explores why God's holiness means he does not accept any way of living that is apart from his law. As followers of Christ, this means that we will love righteousness and not excuse sin, no matter how tempting it may be to adopt worldly ways.

  • Gazing on the Beauty of the Lord - Psalm 27

    Gary Wilkerson

    When we are in times of serious trouble, we often pray and look for God's hand to move. In this sermon, Gary Wilkerson examines how this psalm invites us to search for God's face and presence in our troubles rather than for his saving hand. As counterintuitive as this may seem, we will find far greater strength and peace than if we only desire a rescue from our suffering.

  • The Mountain and the Garden

    Gary Wilkerson

    When we wrestle ourselves into a position of power and authority, we often lose the experience of God blessing and gifting us. Heaven's methods of blessing are not "fair" by human standards, and we often become frustrated by this if we are someone who feels like we should receive priority or a larger portion. In this sermon, Gary Wilkerson discusses why we struggle with this mentality and how God wants to invite us into a better, more generous way of living.

  • The Gift of Righteousness - Part 2

    David Wilkerson (1931-2011)

    By faith, believers become sons and daughters of the living God. He abides and dwells in us, setting us free from the bondage of sin. His Spirit cries out to the Father in our hearts and inclines our spirits to submit and obey the Lord. In this sermon, David Wilkerson talks about how incredibly important grasping this truth is to our redeemed lives. This is how God's children please him and live in a way that testifies to his redemptive work on the cross.

  • The Spirit of Antichrist (1 John 2:18-29)

    Joshua West

    Any theology that doesn't glorify Christ as he is revealed in the scriptures is something meant to destroy the church from within. Anything that diminishes reverence toward the Bible should be avoided. In this message, Joshua West discusses how the greatest danger to the church isn't the world but rather 'Christians' who are actually evangelists for the flesh. There is no neutral ground in the kingdom of heaven; we are either for God or for the darkened world.

  • On Being a Mighty One (Psalm 29)

    Gary Wilkerson

In this teaching, Gary Wilkerson looks at how the psalms show the real impact and importance of hearing God's voice. There are so many misconceptions about what it means to hear from God, but the scriptures give us instructions on how to open ourselves to the Lord's instructions and blessings.

  • Taking Our Problems into God's Presence - Psalm 26

    Gary Wilkerson

    Have you ever refused to join in a sinful situation, so the people who were taking part in it started to make accusations against you? In this sermon, Gary Wilkerson explores Psalm 26 and how our sanctification will convict others and possibly cause them to turn against us. Since none of us is perfect, their accusations can hold an especially painful grain of truth. In those moments, how do we turn to God and find hope for his work in our lives?

  • How to Overcome Shame - Psalm 25

    Gary Wilkerson

    Two very different types of shame haunt most people in the world, but the Bible offers us solutions for both kinds of shame. In this sermon, Gary Wilkerson explores how we can distinguish between these types of shame and why learning to address both of them is critical for our spiritual growth. God knew exactly what his children would face in a broken world and how their own guilt would compound their pain. He has given us the tools to address this, if we earnestly seek him and closely examine scripture.

  • Abiding in the Light

    Joshua West

    The most important thing a Christian does will be loving God. In this sermon, Joshua West discusses the many areas of our lives that are impacted by loving our Lord, most importantly our ability to love others well. The only people who are able to not hold grudges or expect repayment or be conditional are those who have genuinely experienced God's love and loved him in return. The scripture has a great deal to say about all the ways that love should impact our walk as believers, and Joshua West urges us to consider how these verses should be impacting our daily lives.
