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.

“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.

“Let My People Think”

Pastor Vince begins a new series entitled, “Evidences for a Reasonable Faith.” Everything we know and believe of God was initiated by Him. We believe in God because He wanted to reveal Himself to us so that we would respond in faith to Him. What are at least two ways that God has revealed Himself? Watch this message to find out.

Pastor Vince begins his teaching in Joshua 5 and reminds us that as we are all walking on God’s earth, He offers us a wonderful relationship with Him.

Sunday Worship: 3/29/20 From Fright to Sight

The same fear the Israelites experienced when they saw the giant Goliath is the same fear we can be experiencing as we face COVID-19. It also doesn’t have to be a global event – it can be personal event that stirs up great fear. Sometimes it is waiting for test results or a job interview. The fear can be consuming. It is all that we see. In today’s message, Pastor Vince helps us to not be consumed by alarming events…

Right Where You Are

In our vulnerability and brokenness, Jesus doesn’t keep His distance from us. We can have perfect fellowship with Him because God sent His Son to rescue us out of our brokenness. God calls us to slow down and remember that what matters most is for us to embrace His presence in our daily lives.

Sunday Worship: 3/22/20 Look Up and Listen

Throughout the generations, God has spoken to man in various forms. One way is through the skies. He spoke to Noah through the sign of the rainbow. He spoke to David through the vastness of the night sky. Today, He continues to use the sky to speak to us. Pastor Vince shares from Psalm 19 and reminds us of the foundational truth that God is above it all and He is not impacted by the things that shake us. Yet,…

Who Came Up With This Idea?

Pastor Vince teaches on the subject of marriage by focusing on these four points: the place, the purpose, the permanence, and the power of marriage. “It is important to see Who came up with this idea of marriage: God did! It is also important to remember it is for the purpose of mutual loving care that can not only impact your spouse, but your children, your church and the world around you.”

He Will, With Your Life

Pastor Vince continues his study in 1 Corinthians 6:9-20 by reminding us of what the book of Revelations teaches us: that Jesus is in the midst of His people. Keeping that in mind makes all the difference as we dive into this passage in 1 Corinthians. Pastor Vince shares four insights: what sin does – what Jesus does – what sin seeks to still do – what Jesus keeps doing.
