  1. Sexual Sin is Serious because Jesus Christ is Infinitely Glorious

    Over the last two Lord’s Days (Sept. 18 & 25), we’ve been looking at some sobering issues from Eph. 5:3-14.  Against the backdrop of the great spiritual blessings God has given His children in Christ (Eph. 1-3), and the clear call to walk worthy in light of these blessings (Eph. 4:1–5:2), Paul zeroes in on […]

  2. A Real and Present Death

    The glorious power of God’s saving grace in Christ is heralded by Paul in Eph. 2:4-5 – “But God…made us alive together with Christ…”!  God has done this mighty work for those who were once “dead in trespasses and sins” (Eph. 2:1-3); those who were helplessly and hopelessly bound in the death-grip of depravity.  Soberly, […]

  3. Freedom in His Full Forgiveness

  5. Spiritual Bankruptcy and Rich Hope

    It was a joy to have Pastor Martin Manten, and his family, with us this past Lord’s Day.  Martin is the Director of the European Bible Training Center (EBTC) in Zurich, and he’s also planting a church there.   Martin’s sermon from Mt. 5:1-4 on “The Foundation of Happiness” was personally convicting and refreshing.  I […]

  6. Sober, Saturated, Steadfast, and Standing

    A week has now passed since the United States Supreme Court announced its historic decisions regarding homosexual marriage.  Though we are rightly saddened and troubled by the continual outworking of sin in this world, we should not be surprised.  The activity of man’s rebellion against God Almighty has been multiplying ever since Eve ate the […]
