Never the Same Again

Pastor Vince continues his teaching in Revelation 5 where the climax of the entire history of the human race is expressed in song. It speaks of our Savior. Towards the end of this message is also a beautiful application. “What’s the loudest music that is playing in your life? What is the song that people hear coming from you?” May you be both encouraged and challenged.

There Are No Cracks in This Glass

Pastor Vince continues his study in Revelation and teaches from chapter 4. We are given a view of Heaven. Yes, Heaven is real. Pastor Vince shares about the place, the plan and the possibility of Heaven. “We can become so earthly-minded that we forget about the beauty of Heaven and the security of God’s plan. There are no cracks int the glass around the throne of Heaven.”

Christ to the Cardboard Cutouts

Pastor Vince teaches from the letter to the church of Laodicea. Jesus admonishes the Laodiceans on the lukewarmness of their faith. They have become like lifeless cardboard cutouts. Yet, Jesus desires to demonstrate His love towards them by bringing life to them. “The heart of Jesus is to change us.”

Stale Witness

Our teaching in Revelation continues with focusing on the church in Sardis in Revelation 3:1-6. Jesus admonishes them for having a stale faith and for trying to live off of the vibrant believers in the past. He is calling them to wake up and be renewed to the work of the Holy Spirit. May we learn the lesson from the church of Sardis and stay alive with our eyes fixed on the power of the Holy Spirit in our midst.

All Eyes on the Ring Master

Pastor Vince continues his teaching in Revelation 2:18-29 which is the letter to the church in Thyatira. Jesus is directing them to keep their eyes on Him. Do not be distracted and lose focus. Pastor Vince also refers to Acts 1:14 where we can see how the early church had such an incredible impact. How did they? They were all in one accord and were devoted to prayer. Lord, may it be so today.

It’s Frying Pan Day

Pastor Vince continues his teaching in Revelation. This week he focuses on Revelation 2:8-11 and the church in Smyrna. “Whether you are in the frying pan now or not, stay faithful to your Savior.”

Time for Grooming

Pastor Vince continues his teaching in Revelation. “It’s easy to state what the problems with the country are, or the problems with the church, or the problems with Christians are today. Yet, Jesus is asking us to focus on ourselves. What needs to change in me? Jesus has one question for us – Do we love Him?”

In His Hands, In His Plans

Pastor Vince continues his teaching in the book of Revelation 1 where John has a vision of Jesus. There is a wonderful application to our lives on how this vision of Jesus can impact us. “When you are able to take possession of the awesomeness and assurance of Jesus’ personal love for you, there is nothing anyone or anything can do to you…You are in His hands, You are still in His plans, and He wants to continue to work…

“Look Who’s Talking”

This week, Pastor Vince begins a new teaching series on the book of Revelation. “This revelation is going to unfold. There is no question about that. We know this because of the One Who is talking – the God Who was, Who is, and Who is to come.”

No Identity Crisis with Jesus

**Please note that we did experience some sound issues during the first half of the broadcast.** Pastor Vince continues in his sermon series of “Evidences of a Reasonable Faith in God” by teaching on the sure identity of Jesus. “There is no evidence that Jesus ever had an identity crisis. The fact is there is plenty of evidence that Jesus would not allow others to shape identity…He was very clear about Who He is.”

Jesus on the Witness Stand

Pastor Vince continues his series of “Evidence for a Reasonable Faith” where he brings Jesus to the witness stand to declare the Scriptures as the Word of God. We can be confident in the Word of God, abide by it and apply it to our lives to comfort us, challenge us, correct us and anchor us.

Seeing Is Not Always Believing

Pastor Vince continues his series “Evidence for a Reasonable Faith.” This week, he focuses on the historical evidence of the life of Christ apart from the Gospels by sharing three different sources. If these sources are accurate in confirming the truth of Christ, the bigger question for us is how will we respond to that truth?

“Welcome Back”

Pastor Vince continues his sermon series of “Evidences for a Reasonable Faith” by focusing on how it fits with everything we know about the human experience. He shares of a musical group called Lovesong that came to faith in Jesus after being a part of the drug and free love culture of the 60’s and 70’s. “After searching all these different means in life trying to experience what they are supposed to be here for, they find that the historical…

What’s It All About?

What is the meaning of life? Who are we? Whose are we? Why are we here? Where are we going? Those are all questions we wrestle with at some point in our lives. Pastor Vince encourages us to think through these questions and shows us in Scripture the answers. “The fact is we can try every area of life without God, yet it’s going to be meaningless and it becomes evident that we were not meant to find meaning apart…

Hear His Voice

Pastor Vince continues his teaching on the “Evidences for a Reasonable Faith.” This week, he focuses on the internal evidences: our conscience and our awareness of eternity. “God has placed knowledge of Himself in the heavens and He has placed knowledge of Himself in our hearts.”

“Ever–lasting”

Pastor Vince continues in his series, “Evidences for a Reasonable Faith.” He uses several Scripture references to show that the very God Who created and designed this world gives evidence that He sustains it. He shows us why He can and why that should cause us to have confidence, peace and joy as we move forward in our lives.
