Treasure: An Unseen Treasure

March 29, 2020

The Greatest Treasure, Jesus, told us he had a gift for us that was greater than himself in the flesh. We can't see the gift, which makes it easy to forget what we have been given. But this gift has the power to change our entire lives, to empower us, strengthen us, and carry us on our hardest days.

There is treasure all around us everyday, treasure of precious value. But we miss it; we walk right by it and don't give it a second thought. Our eyes have filters on them that keep us from seeing the treasure for its real value. How do we change the filters on our eyes to see treasure so easily missed?

The Good Book: Is it Reliable?

The Good Book: Is it Reliable?

February 2, 2020

Series: Over the years the Bible has been affectionately known as "The Good Book".  People believed it to be the Word of God.  Over the recent decades this idea has eroded away.  Each year a fewer and fewer people read it, believe it to be true or have any relevancy for life.  Now, more than ever, is the time to stop and ask a simple question, "Is the Good Book God's Book and how does it relate to me?"

Sermon: In life we are faced with so many things that are not reliable; work, family, friends, etc.  At some point almost everyone and everything has let us down.  How can we look at the Bible and think that it is anything different?  Is it really the Word of God?  Can I count on it?  Where will it lead me?
