Daniel and the Lion's Den

July 31st, 2022

Kevin Blackwell, Disciplemaking and Teaching Pastor

It is better to sleep in the den of lions with Jesus than to sleep in palace leisure without Him. The story of Daniel teaches us how to live counter-culture to our world today.  

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego

July 24th, 2022

Pastor Randy Norris

How will you stand up to the demands of the enemy when things get hot? Learning lessons from this popular story in Daniel 3, we learn how to only bow our knees to the one true God.

David and Goliath

July 17th , 2022

Tim Hess, Collegiate Pastor

You will never win a spiritual battle in your own strength. We couldn't defeat the Goliath of our sin on our own, so God sent His Son to slay the giant for us on Calvary's cross.

The Father Heart of God

July 10th, 2022

Mark Wilson, National Director of Australian Baptist Ministries

In Luke 15 Jesus tells the story about a father and his two sons. One son wasted his father's possessions with prodigal living. The other son wasted his father's possessions with purposeless living. The father showed love with priority living.


July 3rd, 2022

Phillip Wolfe, Next Generation Pastor

Sin takes you further than you want to go and keeps you longer than you want to stay and costs you more than you want to pay. Thankfully, God's grace is greater. The story of Samson is one of strength lost and strength regained.

Joshua and Jericho

June 26th, 2022

Pastor Randy Norris

The story of Joshua encourages believers to be strong and courageous and to trust God completely.

Abraham and Isaac

June 19th, 2022

Mark David Bradford, Missions Pastor

The story of Abraham and Isaac is one of the most incredible stories of faith and God's provision in the entire Bible. Just as God provided a ram in place of Isaac, He has provided His own Son in our place.

Abraham and Lot

June 12th, 2022

Pastor Randy Norris

In this story of two men, Abraham and his nephew, Lot, we look at the progression of sin in Lot's life and the priority of prayer in Abraham's life. One thing is certain, you will never pray seriously like Abraham if you are playing sinfully like Lot.

Noah's Ark

June 5th, 2022

Pastor Randy Norris

The story of Noah's ark is one of the most popular stories in all of the Bible. This message looks at how Noah believed God's Word and readjusted his entire life to do the work God had called him to do.

Adam and Eve

May 29th, 2022

Pastor Randy Norris

It doesn't take much to convince us that something has gone wrong in our world. Everything that is wrong and doesn't measure up to the perfection of God can be traced back to this one event in Genesis 3.
