God Will Provide a Lamb – Gen. 22:8

1/14/18 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
God’s plan for redeeming mankind was in place long before Christ came.  Through the family of Abraham, through the son of the promise Isaac, all the nations would be blessed.  In one instance, Abraham’s faith was tested, and God reaffirmed the covenant with the patriarch.

The Great Commission in Acts (2)

1/14/18 Sunday Bible Study

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
Jesus instructed the apostles to preach the gospel “in Jerusalem, and in Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  The Book of Acts shows us how the apostles carried out that commission.  In this lesson we look at the way the gospel continued to spread in Jerusalem and started spreading throughout Judea and Samaria.

A Sermon With No Scripture – Acts 17:22-34

1/7/18 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Usually we balk at the idea of a preacher not using any Scripture in his sermon, as well we should.  But there is at least one example of the apostle Paul preaching a sermon without referencing any Scripture.  It’s his sermon to the Areopagus in Acts 17, and though he teaches Scriptural truth, he doesn’t quote any Biblical texts as he presents the truth to idolatrous philosophers.
