Beware of False Prophets

Matthew 7.15-20
Jun 12th 2016

Whose Son Is He?

Matthew 1.18-25

Acts 17.16-34, Revelation 21.1-3
Mar 23rd 2014

The Doctrine of The Holy Spirit

Acts 1.4-8, Luke 24.46-49
Feb 23rd 2014

The Holy Spirit. Perhaps one of the most divisive doctrines in the Church. Ironically, however, He was given by God to unite the Church in the Spirit and Truth of Christ.

The Doctrine of Jesus Christ

1 Timothy 3.16
Feb 9th 2014

Resurrection of the Heart

Apr 24th 2011

All the doctrine, theology, and fulfilled prophecy in the world can't change the heart. Only God can do that. So what's the Great Physician's scalpel of choice: the cross and resurrection.
