There’s Only One Fear that Brings Fortitude

Have you ever been caught in the grip of fear? Fear of rejection, physical sickness, mounting financial debt, what might happen to your children, etc?  There are human reasons for fear, but there is one wonderful fear that can set us free from all other fears – the fear (awe) of God. This week, Pastor Vince continues in Matthew 10 and points out three reasons why we do not need to remain in the grips of human fear. Watch and…

A Weightless Wonder

“The abiding presence of God is a weightless wonder…as a follower of Jesus Christ, the more you come to see and remember and understand and embrace the fact that the living Jesus is abiding in you – it won’t register on the scale in your bathroom – but it will register on your scale of wonder, your scale of peace and your scale of purpose. Everything you do in life takes on a whole new meaning.” Take some time to…

Hey, What Do You Say?

A common greeting we say to others is, “How are you doing?” A common greeting Pastor Vince uses is, “Hey, what do you say?”  Yet, in today’s sermon, this phrase is not being used as a greeting, but as a question.  In teaching from Matthew 9, Pastor Vince asks the question from three different sources – the Pharisees, Jesus, and the disciples. “Jesus wants us to be saying something and that something is about Him.” Matthew 9

When it Becomes Personal, You See Persons

“This chapter in Matthew is a very personal passage…one where Jesus comes to change lives personally, and when He does, something happens – He causes us to see persons.” Watch this message and ask yourself if you have allowed Jesus to change the way you see persons (intentional grammar here) in your life. This is an encouraging and convicting message. Matthew 9

The Divine Diagnosis

Imagine a scenario where you are brought to the emergency room with symptoms of a heart attack, but instead of the doctor being honest with you, he minimizes your diagnosis to make you feel better. Yet, you want him to be honest with you and with what you are facing. “Don’t tell me what I want to hear,” you say. “I want to know what is really wrong with me.” In this week’s sermon, Pastor Vince shares how Jesus, because…

There’s Nothing Subtle About These Scenes

“We read the gospel stories and for some people they are just stories, ancient stories that have morals and virtues. Yet in Matthew 8 there are some scenes that are meant to jolt the lives of not only the disciples but are also meant to travel across the centuries and abruptly alert us to reality…. Don’t miss the One Person in the scene Who determines the entire outcome.” Listen in or watch this sermon where Pastor Vince teaches from Matthew…

Enter Here

This week, Pastor Vince opened his message with describing how precise the Apollo 13 re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere needed to be so that its’ passengers remained alive.  “We deal every day with entry decisions – not always as critical as Apollo’s entry – yet the entry point discussed in these two verses in Matthew 7 is most critical for all of us.”

Oh What a Relief It Is

Do you know the jingle from the Alka-Seltzer commercial – “Pop, pop, fizz, fizz, Oh what a relief it is!” Well, Pastor Vince has adapted this jingle to his sermon this week as he continues his study through Matthew. “Every day my eyes can get a little cloudy and experience blurry and distorted vision…Jesus’ words in Matthew 9 can bring relief and provide us with a clear eye that leads to see a better treasure to a proper priority and…

In this chapter, Jesus has His followers gathered around Him and He is teaching them to pray. You absolutely can know what’s ahead for…
