God's Work of Salvation...Straight Up: Does God Exist?

How can we know that God exists? While in the end believing in God takes a step of faith, there are proofs for the existence of God that many have found to be helpful. In this week's sermon we will explore these proofs.

God's Work of Salvation...Straight Up: Who Is Jesus (Part 2)

Pastor Steve Brown


Jesus is the Word of God made flesh. As the Word Jesus accomplishes what he says, so when he promises that when we come to him we will find rest and peace for our souls, he does that. All the promises that Jesus made are accomplished because God’s Word does what it says and in the resurrection of Jesus all this is confirmed.



Lessons: Isaiah 55:8-12a, 1 Thessalonians 2:13, Matthew 11:25-30

God's Work of Salvation...Straight Up: The Bad Doctors

David Drees


Our pursuit of the Glory of God has been infinitely frustrated because of the Fall, and our often selfish or worldly pursuit to restore our standing before the Lord has led us to run to many counterfeit idols and limited doctors which do more harm to our soul than good. 


Lessons: Jeremiah 2:1-8, Psalm 1, Luke 8:40-48.

God's Work of Salvation...Straight Up

How Bad Is Our Sin...Really?

Pastor Steve Brown


How do you account for the fact that we suffer really horrible experiences, including death itself? This Sunday, Pastor Steve, will take the next step in  our sermon series "God's Work of Salvation ... Straight Up" as he answers the question, "How bad is our sin ... really?" He will teach that our rebellion against God and God's values causes us to suffer horrible experiences. Our sin is not simply mistakes that we can correct, but rather what has totally broken us and creation. We need more than a second chance, we need a second birth. We are sinners in need of a Savior.    


Lessons: Isaiah 59:1-4, James 2:1-10, John 8:31-47

God's Work of Salvation...Straight Up: The Cross

God's Work of Salvation...Straight Up:

Will Jesus Raise Me From The Dead?

Pastor Steve Brown


As we celebrate that through Jesus we have all been made saints in God’s eternal kingdom, this sermon will begin with a brief apologetic for the resurrection of the dead followed by a brief description of life in the resurrection. It will conclude with a teaching on living the resurrected life today.


After hearing this sermon we hope you will, in prayerful contemplation, identify one area of your life that you desire to more reflect the resurrected life to come. Ask God to reveal to you the steps you can take to make it so.

God's Work of Salvation...Straight Up:

The Gift

David Drees


So now that we've seen the cross and we believe in the resurrection… What do we do now. Jesus has presented us with the free gift of grace, how do we enjoy that Grace and live in that Grace forever?


Lessons: Jeremiah 3:12-14Luke 18:9-14Luke 23:39-47
