Peace is one of the most defining aspects of every person's life! Whether we have it or don't have it, peace shapes our values, our behaviors, and our relationships. In this message, we look at what Jesus said when the Shalom-makers are blessed and shall be called the children of God.
How are you holding up? Are things much different today than they were when the book of Jude was written?
Is it possible to see God today? In this message we look at who the Bible says is the 'pure in heart'. It's the Lord's will that every person would have access to the sight of God, by living purely and growing in His Word.
It's likely that Mercy is one of those words we take for granted. We often associate it with a pleasant feeling. But it's so much more than that, and according to Jesus it's something that all disciples of His must extend to others. In this message we look at the fifth beatitude, Blessed are the Merciful.
We can dedicate ourselves to the pursuit of being satisfied in many areas of our lives. But one thing is marked as bringing us the ultimate satisfaction: hungering and thirsting for righteousness.
Is it meekness or "Strength under control"? This week we look at the lives of Moses, Paul and Bart and Matthew 5:5.
We continue our series on the Beatitudes and devote our selves to studying the first thoughts on Jesus's first recorded sermon. In this message, we look closer at mourning and the comfort that Jesus offers us. It's not just being sad for no reason! It's about one's heart drawing nearer to Jesus!
Pastor Terry Wilcox launches this series with the first of the beatitudes, 'Blessed are the poor in spirit'. As the Director of the Bridgeport Rescue Mission for 17-years, Terry has ministered to the poor and the poor in spirit. And he has seen the Kingdom of Heaven released in power.
In the final message of the series My Prayer Can Change the World, we look at how a powerful prayer life fills us with rewards. We're rewarded with joy, eternity, and a legacy of answered prayers. He is faithful and loves us, our prayers, and His time with us.
What should we be thinking about when we're praying to God? That's the question we discuss as we learn how to have confidence in God's character, His will, and in our communication with Him. We were meant to pray boldly, with certainty, that the Lord hears and answers our prayers.
