Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “A Matter of Trust” based on Mark 12:41-44:

  • Tithing is an Old Testament concept
  • Tithing is not commanded in the New Testament
  • Tithing is a concept under the law
  • The New Testament model of giving is based on grace
  • The concept of tithing is abused and mis-guided in the church today
  • 10% is a good place to start, but Jesus demands everything
  • If you can’t trust God with your finances, how can you trust Him with to save your soul?
  • If God isn’t Lord over your money, He probably isn’t Lord over your heart either.

You can also listen to the message brought by Bro Charles Cameron in the evening service “Ready to Preach” based on Romans 1:15-17 here or by clicking on the audio player below:

Here are some “Sound Bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Practical Atheism” based on I Samuel 17:

  • Many Christians live a life no different than a non-Christian.
  • Many Christians continue to ignore God in their everyday lives.
  • Many Christians have forgotten what God has done for them.
  • Many Christians focus on their physical needs instead of their spiritual needs.
  • Many Christians choose to remain inactive, instead of working for the Lord.
  • If you were accused of being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you?

You can listen to “Practical Atheism” here, or by clicking on the player below.

Due to a technical error, Sunday evening’s sermon, “Give it up” was not recorded.

Sunday’s Coming!

Posted by Rick on January 11, 2008

Join us this Sunday, as continue with the second in the series, God is Closer Than You Think,  with this sermon, “In Times of Crisis”.  We’ll take a look at how God is actually with us in times of crisis, rather than leaving us alone to get through it the best we can.  Our text will be the familiar and much loved Psalm 23.  Sunday evening, we’ll take another look at Matthew 23 with “Modern Day Pharisees”.

My invitation to you is that if you are reading this and you are in the Wagoner area, please come to visit this Sunday!  If you are reading this and are not in our area, be sure to listen to the sermon next week when it is posted on our “Online Sermons” page.

May God bless you in 2008!

Here are some “sound bites” from yesterday’s sermon, “Responding to a Raw Deal”:

  • Life isn’t fair.
  • The wicked who prosper will only have a temporary prosperity.
  • Sometimes “temporary” means a human lifetime; think of temporary in terms of eternity.
  • It is OK to be brutally honest with God and complain to Him.
  • You need to get the “Big Picture”, a prospective that includes God and eternity.
  • When you look at the prosperity of the unrighteous, you take your eyes off God and can be swept away by your desires. 
  • Get in the fellowship of believers; stay in church.
  • Renew your fellowship with God.
  • Confess your sin, then commit to keep your eyes on God and God’s kingdom.
