Faithful in Little, Faithful in Much- Video

Rev. Anthony Ochoa

8/30/15

Description:Text: 1 Samuel 16:1-13It's easy to buy into the problem of "someday." "Someday I will do this... someday I will do that... Someday I'll...." The problem is that when we spend our lives waiting for "someday" we never become content with what we have "today." By looking at the story of David being anointed the future king of Israel, we might just learn why it's important to be faithful "today" even while we're waiting for "someday" to come.

The Song of Contentment-audio

Dr. Kevin D. Glenn-Sr. Pastor

6/14/15

Description:Have you ever noticed how powerful a song can be? It can make us think of someone we love, stir up feelings of anger, soothe a troubled heart, help us put words to a feeling, or even help us push through a tough workout. It's no wonder that God provides a living playlist right in the middle of the Bible. The Psalter, or the book of Psalms, contains 150 chapters. Each one is a set of lyrics put to rhythm and melody that speak of love, hate, security, anxiety, peace, war, wisdom, foolishness, feeling forsaken, and being forgiven. If it's a part of life, it's part of the Psalms. Psalms that stand out because of their sustained and even stubborn trust in God in the midst of and in the face of adverse circumstances are known as the Psalms of Confidence. The Psalm of confidence that’s been the most repeated? Psalm 23: The Song of the Shepherd.

Description:Perhaps the most difficult issue for those who follow and those who object to Christianity is the question of hell.The objection is as follows: How can the concept of judgement in hell possibly be reconciled with the idea of a loving God? Responding to this objection requires that we examine what Jesus was talking about when he talked about hell. This will in turn help us understand some very important realities related to hell. 1. The condition of our own soul. 2. How to raise peace within ourselves and in the world. 3. The unfathomable depths of God's love.Let’s go there …

Description:All the topics we have explored in this series have one thing in common – they create doubt. It’s no surprise that doubts have been present in the lives of serious skeptics, curious seekers, serious agnostics and atheists. Doubt is actually an obstacle to Christianity for many.What if I told you that doubts arise in the lives of serious followers of Jesus – even those in Jesus’ inner circle? What if I suggested that doubt is a doorway to faith for those who don’t follow Jesus and for those who do?The events of the first Easter can help us understand why the journey of faith is full of doubt

The Truth is Out There VIDEO

Dr. Kevin D. Glenn - Sr. Pastor

5/3/15

Description:Jesus said, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. At his trial, Pilate asked him, “What is truth?” Pilate is not alone in his question. The quest to seek, find, understand, and live by truth is one that touches us all. The prevailing theory today is that each us must determine our own “truth” and seek to live by it without violating another’s personal quest for their own truth. But when truth claims inevitably clash, how can we determine which ones are valid? Is there truth that is absolute? Christians believe they have absolute truth. That is, they hold beliefs they believe everyone should believe. This is a major obstacle to faith for many, and a reason that Christians can be accused of oppression by imposing their view of truth on those who hold to a different truth.•“The heart of liberty is to define one’s own concept of existence of the meaning of the universe.” – Justice Anthony Kennedy What can be said in response to this idea?This message explores how Christianity provides answers to questions of truth, freedom, and liberation through the person of Jesus.

For God's sake, where is God?-Video

Dr. Kevin D. Glenn - Sr. Pastor

4/26/15

Description:While being forced to watch the hanging of a child at Auschwitz, holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel writes, “Someone asked, ‘For God’s sake, where is God?’”Just the headlines of a newspaper, the first ten minutes of a news broadcast, or a quick look online will reveal the worst of evil and suffering in the world. With a 24 hour news cycle in place, it can be overwhelming. Such a feeling leads many to question or even abandon their faith in a God who promises to know and care for his creation. Others point to the presence of suffering as proof of God’s absence altogether. This is a formidable problem, but not a new one.While no single sermon could begin to alleviate the pain many of us have experienced, this message does seek to explore how Christianity can address the very real and important problem of evil and suffering. We’ll look first at an approach I don’t believe helps at all, then three that can help a great deal.

Taking God at His Word-Video

Dr. Kevin D. Glenn - Sr. Pastor

4/19/15

Description:One of the biggest obstacles to Christianity is the Bible itself. The object of criticism, ridicule, and dismissal, the Bible is seen by many as an outdated, unreliable, and culturally backward collection of ancient legends. My conversations over the past year have included these thoughts:“Kevin, the accounts of Jesus’ life were created and fabricated by the political winners. They suppressed the evidence of the historical Jesus’ role as a prophet or teacher. Much later, fabricated stories about him doing miracles and claiming to be Divine were added to the documents in order to consolidate power and political advantage?”“I actually like a lot of things in the Bible. But you can’t take it all seriously. Too many sketchy historical issues. The bigger hang-up for me is the loopy stuff with human rights issues (family, marriage, slavery, genocide). The Bible supported some sick stuff.”There is a great deal of misunderstanding, misrepresentation, and a whole lot of misinformation about the Bible that unnecessarily leads to the conclusions above. In this message, I want to suggest that you can confidently trust the Bible historically, culturally, and personally. You can take God at his Word.

Description:Everyone has beliefs. Yet those beliefs differ between individuals. Religious belief is a source of both great curiosity and conflict between people of like faith, differing faiths, and no faith. Indeed, beliefs create conflicts within one’s self as those beliefs intersect with life. Christianity exists as a voice among a chorus of beliefs.Christianity is unique among those religious voices. This is primarily because Christianity is essentially a relational voice, not a religious one. If Jesus did anything, it was to overturn the religiosity of his day in exchange for what God has been after all along; a relationship with you. That makes your decision about Jesus pretty important.But there are plenty of important questions, issues, problems, difficulties and obstacles between Jesus’ call and our decision. What do we do with those?“The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.” – Matthew 28:5-6This series is about addressing the obstacles to belief. We’ll begin with what it means to take Jesus’ invitation seriously.
