Because He Cares For You – 1 Peter 5:6-7 – 9/16/18 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
What a blessing for God’s people to know that He cares for us.  Jesus assures us of God’s care in the Sermon on the Mount, and throughout Scripture there are multiple examples of God looking after his people.

The Day Drawing Near – Matthew 24:36-44 – 9/9/18 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
We serve a great God who has given us ample reason to come to him (Heb. 10:19-25).  He also wants us to encourage one another, since we all know that a day is coming for which we must be prepared.  Judgement Day is real, and we must be ready for it.

Our Great High Priest – Heb. 4:14-16 – 9/2/18 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Does coming to worship really matter?  Whatever you may believe, God has certainly commanded it (Heb. 10:25), but he has also given us good reasons to want to gather for worship (Heb. 10:19-21).  He gave us confidence to come before his throne through our Great High Priest Jesus Christ, who is the subject of our study for today.

Does God Exist? (part 3) – Romans 2:12-16

8/26/18 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
As we deal with our friends, neighbors, and co-workers, we will inevitably come across people who do not believe that God exists.  Some will ask us why we still believe.  Over the past couple of weeks we have looked at answers we can give to that question, and in this lesson we look at a third, The Moral Argument for the Existence of God.

Confidence Before His Throne – Hebrews 4:14-16; 10:19-25

8/26/18 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
We talk a lot about church attendance.  We ought to know how important it is for Christians to gather together for worship.  But it’s so much more than putting bodies in the seats.  It is important that we understand that God has given us good reasons for wanting to come and worship Him.  It’s all based in what He has done for us through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Does God Exist? (part 2) – Isaiah 45:18

8/19/18 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
As we continue how we ought to be prepared to give an answer to those who ask why we believe, we are looking at another argument for evidence of God’s existence.  In this case we are considered the Teleological, or Design, Argument, making the case that because this universe maintains all the characteristics of being fine-tuned, there must be a designer.

The Uncondemned Life – Romans 8:1-18

8/19/18 a.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Our God is a God of comfort, and he has given us assurances of his love for us throughout the scriptures.  One example is found in Romans 8:1, a most comforting verse.  As we consider the first half of this chapter, let’s notice “The Uncondemned Life.” of all who are in Christ Jesus

Does God Exist? (part 1) – Romans 1:19-20

8/12/18 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Since we are to be prepared to give an answer to those that would ask why we believe (1 Pet. 3:15), it logically follows that we ourselves understand good reasons to believe.  This short series will examine three arguments for the existence of God.  Through these arguments not only will we be better equipped to give an answer, but our faith should be strengthened as well.  This first lesson focuses on the Cosmological Argument for the Existence of God.
