Lead with Humility

Wisdom and knowledge are often confused. Knowledge is readily available and just a click away. Wisdom, however, is knowing how to use that knowledge and recognizing the source behind it. Leaders need to know how to remain humble and lead with wisdom. God teaches us in his Word to use the wisdom of Heaven to humble ourselves and recognize our need for Jesus. Sermon Text: James 3:13-18

Listen to Learn

In our culture, we’re taught to speak our minds, and those who speak loudest and often are heard. But God has a different view. God’s Word teaches us how powerful our words can be. Instead of speaking everything that comes to mind, Christians are encouraged to “tame our tongues” and listen first. We can use our tongues to change the direction of people’s lives by sharing Jesus with them. Sermon Text: James 3:1-12

Living Our Faith

We do not have to do anything to earn God’s grace. But that doesn’t mean we don’t do good in the world around us. God teaches us that “faith without deeds is dead”. In other words, God wants us to serve and care for others as a reflection of His love in our communities. When we trust in Jesus with our mind, body, and soul and live our faith by doing good, our faith is living and active and does…

Put People First

We often judge a person based on their appearance. But appearances are deceiving. The world may have taught us to look at and treat people a certain way based on their appearance or social status, but God teaches us to treat all people with mercy, loving all our neighbors as ourselves. Jesus didn’t and doesn’t discriminate against anyone; he lived, died, and rose for all. Sermon Text: James 2:1-13

Jesus Welcomes Sinners

Jesus preached a message of repentance and grace to everyone. He was known for welcoming all people to him. We are all prone to wandering from Jesus. We all need his grace and mercy. Jesus teaches us that none of us can be in good standing with God on our won. We are only saved through him. And this is why we partner in mission to reach the lost: because Jesus welcomes sinners… all of us. Sermon Text: Luke 15

Rest Over Exhaustion

We often avoid rest, choosing exhaustion instead. We spend so much time trying to be perfect at whatever we do. We don’t want to let people down. We want to feel loved and needed. And so, we go above and beyond to prove ourselves to others and to God. The result is we are exhausted. We are tired. We are worn out. We need rest so that we can see and do the important things instead of the urgent things.…

United Against One Enemy

We are not to fight against human beings. That just leads to more division and hostility. Our true enemy is the devil and all his dark forces that are at work behind all that is evil. We are to work together to find our common spiritual enemy with spiritual weapons. Sermon Text: Ephesians 6:10-17

United in Christ

No matter who is in the White House, Christians pledge their ultimate allegiance to King Jesus. Paul tells us that Jesus is seated at the right hand of God, ruling over all things for the good of the Church. He did this to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ. Elections for our government don’t need to make or break you. In Christ, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. We are united…

Go with the Gospel

What does it look like to “go with the Gospel”? Victory’s mission is to “reach today’s people with Christ’s victory”. This mission comes directly from Jesus, who commanded his disciples to share the Gospel with the world. As followers of Jesus, we grow in our own faith when we are committed to sharing the Gospel with those who don’t know Christ. We can go out into the world, knowing that God is with us when we share our faith. Sermon…

Grow in Faith

Do you think you can grow in faith? Or are you stuck? We know that Scripture is “God-breathed” and is “useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness”. But many of us have difficulty building a habit in reading God’s word regularly. We may perceive time constraints or feel intimidated by the size or complexity of the Bible. But we can all grow in faith. Using tools such as devotion series, reading plans, and videos on Scriptures helps us…

Give to Support

“Whoever sows generously will also reap generously.” Giving to church isn’t about obligation. We give offerings, use our abilities to serve Jesus, and offer up our time out of love to Jesus and to our church. God blesses the gifts we give cheerfully to His Kingdom. When we commit to serving God’s kingdom with time, talents, and treasures, we will see the benefits of our generosity in our church, community, and in our own hearts. Sermon Text: 2 Corinthians 9:6-15

Groups for Accountability

Worshiping Jesus in a large group is a huge blessing. But there are some things you can’t do in a large group. We can’t build intimate and trusting relationships. We can’t “spur one another on towards love and good deeds.” That’s why we need to gather in Life Groups. In a Life Group, we experience the powerful blessing of holding each other accountable to the Word of God. Sermon Text: Hebrews 10:19-25
