What Is Evil, and Where Does It Come From?

Watch the full teaching here July 29, 2018 // This is part one of a five-part teaching series that seeks Biblical answers for tough theological questions. God is good, and only good, and just things come from God. By allowing free will, God opened the door for us and the angels to be able to bring evil into the world. Because of the fall, our nature is completely fallen. If there is no presence of God, there is only evil. Deuteronomy 32:4 #teaching #ToughQuestions

Who Am I - Going Forward?

Watch the teaching here July 22, 2018  //  This is part six of a six-part teaching series that answers the question, “Who Am I?”  The process of sanctifying grace leads to perfecting grace.  We need to stay focused, disciplined, and keep our eye on the prize.  As Christians, we are not just life-long learners, but also eternal learners.  Our learning and growth will continue in heaven and in the new heaven and new earth.  Each one of us should always be looking for new learning and spiritual development opportunities.  Some day, we will reach the end of our time here on Earth and meet Christ with saying, “Well done good and faithful servant.”  Colossians 2:10; Romans 8:1-2; Philippians 4:13;

Who Am I - In This World?

Watch the teaching here July 15, 2018 // This is part five of a six-part teaching series that answers the question, “Who Am I?” Christians are all called to do three main things: be a personal witness of Christ, be a minister of reconciliation by bearing fruit, and assault the gates of Hades. We are to be servants of God, doing His work every day, so that we bear fruit. Sometimes we experience times when God prunes us, or removes things that get in the way of doing His work, so that we will bear fruit. John 15:1-5, 16; Matthew 5:14; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 3:9, 16; 2 Corinthians 6:1; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Matthew 16:18 #teaching #WhoAmI

Armor of God

Watch the teaching here July 8, 2018 // Kelly Kirstein shares that "our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but... against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places." Fortunately God has given us Spiritual armor with which to defend and attack Satan's advances. Ephesians 6:10-20 #teaching
