The gospel, the good news about Jesus, belongs to God – not to Paul, nor to any other preacher. Listen to Pastor David’s message based on 1 Thessalonians 2:1-12.
The Gospel Truth
We start a new series on 1 Thessalonians, and Pastor David introduces his Doctor of Ministry project starting next January. Listen here!
Faith, Hope, Love
Jesus never heals people just for their own benefit. Before we prayed for healing in several people’s lives, Pastor David gave this reflection on Matthew 8:1-17. Here we find four times Jesus healed people, but always so they could give a testimony to God’s work in their lives.
Healing Service – Beams of Heaven
This series on Church of God beliefs comes to a close as Pastor David preaches on Matthew 20:1-16, a parable in which Jesus demonstrates the radical generosity of God.
Believing and Doing: Kingdom of God
Unity is easier said than done, especially within a local congregation. Pastor David explains in his sermon on Matthew 18:15-20 that our concern for each other’s spiritual well-being is crucial to our unity as a church.
Believing and Doing: Unity
What does it mean to be holy? We often think it relates to moral perfection or obeying rules. But what if it amounts to responding positively to God’s pursuit of you? Listen to Pastor David’s sermon on Matthew 16:21-28.
Believing and Doing: Holiness
If Jesus is Lord, then nothing else can be. This is a revolutionary claim of the Christian faith. Are we listening for God’s voice to reveal this deep truth to us? Listen to Pastor David’s sermon on Matthew 16:13-20.
Believing and Doing: Jesus is Lord
Jesus gave the “Great Commission” to his disciples at the very end of Matthew’s gospel. Pastor David suggests that this is very much like the covenant language that God used in the Old Testament, such as in today’s sermon text, Isaiah 56:1-8.
Believing and Doing – The Great Commission
The Church of God has always supported women as ministers of the good news of Jesus Christ, based on our reading of scripture passages such as Romans 10:5-15. Listen as Pastor David sets the context and discusses how all of us are responsible to take in the word of faith and to share it with others. How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!
Believing and Doing: Women in Ministry
Are you Paul, Timothy, or a person from Macedonia? Whom do our churches need to welcome into their midst, and who is crying out for help? Listen to Pastor David’s second message at the St. Louis Camp Meeting, based on Acts 16:1-10.
