— Last Sunday's Sermons —
Paul challenges Timothy with the serious importance of preaching God’s Word. The first indicator of a healthy church is the nature of its pulpit. This also affects parents as you seek to teach the Word to your children or disciple a student or impact a spouse with the truth. You and I need to hear just how important preaching is to God.
Chris Mueller will take us through key passages in Scripture, laying the biblical foundation for marriage. Marriage (and all other relationships) are created by God and we are to follow His “blueprint” so that we bring Him glory through those relationships!
Repent and return to real repentance! We will look at this essential doctrine of repentance. What does it mean? Is it really necessary? What does it look like? I’ve already repented, so do I need to keep doing it? How do I know if my repentance is real? This is a challenging message, but the result if applied, is so sweet in the life of a Christ follower.
What do people believe about the future? What do other religions teach about the end? What makes the Bible any different, and why should we trust it over all the other religious views on the end times? Gain massive confidence in why you can trust the Bible’s teaching on how things end for the human race on Earth.
This Sunday we go on a momentous journey through John 21, showing that even broken people (like Peter and like us) can be restored to serve God.
Why should we believe what the Bible says about the future? Tonight we look at past prophecies and how accurate/inaccurate they have been.
Paul’s exhortation to Timothy is to be a useful vessel for His glory. Last week, we learned that what he was to flee and pursue in order to be pure. This week, we learn what it means to live with grace in the face of opposition.
As Christians, our families should display the joy found in God. That starts with our own hearts and radiates into the relationships we have with others!

The sharpest tools in God’s service are the men and women who pursue living pure. In 2 Timothy 2:22, more than sexual purity and not merely for youth, verse 22 tells us now to “flee from youthful lusts and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart.”
God tells you, through Paul, that the tool who will be used greatly by God will be the believer who seeks to have a cleansed life, a sanctified heart, a strong desire to be used of God, and a determination to do the works of God.

Second Timothy continues in chapter two with an incredible challenge about false teaching—how dangerous it is and what it says about you. Paul actually refers to an amazing event from the Old Testament in Numbers 16, and you will be surprised by how current and practical that event is to me and you.
Paul teaches that if certain sinful behavior continues unrepentant in the life of someone who claims to be a Christian, it actually indicates by that outward and obvious behavior, that they are not saved.
