Our “Connecting with People of the Bible” series brings us to the Apostle Thomas. We are well aware of Thomas’ reputation as a doubter, but we fail to see our own tendencies to doubt. Looking at Thomas more holistically will remind us that a faith-filled response to Jesus brings us new life.

An Alien Environment Today we explore the holiness of God and how it relates to us. For many of us we approach holiness the way we approach a big, tangled ball of yarn. We’d like to unravel it and get the knots out, but it’s a lot easier to simply cut it out and move […]

A Matter of Priority Have you ever come across people who clearly have misplaced priorities? We can look at them and realize what they care about is completely out of whack. One such example is that of Marcin Muchalski. Marcin was a tough New Yorker – I’ll give him that much – who was approached […]

Your salt-of-the-earth lifestyle produces consistent and potent good works that people can’t help but notice, and your light-of-the-world brightness illuminates God as the source of them. A lifestyle of distinct living as a follower of Jesus may get people’s attention – especially as you meet their needs in sacrificial ways – but they need the illumination of the Good News of Jesus to understand you’re not just a really nice person. And a lifestyle of sharing the illuminating message of Jesus is a must, but it will fall on deaf ears if people can’t connect it to the distinct, salty acts that reflect the love of Jesus.
|Series: Convictions That Connect||Preacher: Kevin Freeman||Date: May 27, 2018||Scripture Reference: Ephesians 2:4-9|
As we explore God’s saving grace – one of our “convictions that connect” – we need to ask two questions. First, do we understand God’s grace? Second, does it “wow” us? Our study will take us to the exciting truths about the role of grace in our salvation so that we can come away with a renewed passion produced by it.
|Series: Convictions That Connect||Preacher: Kevin Freeman||Date: May 6, 2018||Scripture Reference: Romans 3:21-26|
As we continue our series on “Convictions that Connect,” our study of the Five Solas, we come to the one on Christ. Sola Christus. Christ alone. The concept behind this sola is that our salvation was secured by Christ alone. That means that Jesus was exclusively the only one able to save us and that […]
|Series: Were You There?||Preacher: Kevin Freeman||Date: April 1, 2018, Easter Sunrise||Scripture Reference: 1 Corinthians 1:18-31|
The power of the words, “He is risen,” does not come from some congruence with normal life experience; the power is found in the absurdity of the statement combined with the realization that it is, in fact, true. We’ve come here today to give witness to the fact of the resurrection, but we dare not stop there. We aren’t here because of an airtight argument but because of the life-giving breath of the Holy Spirit in us. He brings our dead hearts back to life through the shed blood of Jesus, and only then can that blood be pumped to our brains to bring true understanding.
|Series: What On Earth Am I Here For?||Preacher: Kevin Freeman||Date: October 29, 2017||Scripture Reference: 2 Timothy 3:16-17|
Have you ever had a job that got a little boring? Sure, we all have, perhaps even enough to want a new career. With that in mind, I’d like to share with you a few career options that you might enjoy, whether you’re at a stage in life where your setting out for the first […]
|Series: The SOARer's Prayer||Preacher: Kevin Freeman||Date: August 27, 2017||Scripture Reference: Matthew 6:5-9|
Shasta’s encounter with the Lion – Aslan, the King of kings – did not so much change his circumstances as it did his perspective on them. He no longer felt sorry for himself and looked at his misfortunes in a different light. This is a beautiful picture of what happens when we encounter God through prayer. Encountering God through prayer changes us.
|Series: --||Preacher: Kevin Freeman||Date: June 18, 2017, Father's Day||Scripture Reference: 1 Timothy 6:11-12|
See the slides I received a Christmas gift last year that I enthusiastically use just about every day. It’s the Show Me How page-a-day calendar. It uses little graphics to teach me how to do just about anything. For example, just over a month ago I learned how to fend off a mountain lion. See […]
