Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “The Blood of Christ” based on Hebrews 9:11-22:

  • The vileness of sin is so great it required an equally vile cure.
  • Blood has been required to cover sin since Adam and Eve sinned and God had to kill an animal to make clothes for them.
  • The blood of bulls and goats are not good enough to forgive sin.
  • Jesus became the acceptable sacrifice.
  • Jesus’ sacrifice only had to be made once.
  • His sacrifice is available to all who believe.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “The Cross of Christ” based on I Corinthians 1:18-25:

  • The message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing.
  • The message of the cross is the power of God to those who are being saved.
  • The cross is a symbol of God’s great love for us.
  • The cross is a reminder of the vileness of our sin.
  • People try to make sense out of God’s plan, but it confounds them.
  • Christianity isn’t really a religion; it is a relationship.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “Are You Sure You’re Saved?” based on I John 5:11-13:

  • Many people have some sort of “religious experience” and think they are saved.
  • Many people are led to believe that walking down an aisle or getting baptized makes them saved.
  • John wrote that we can be sure we’re saved if you:
    • have a hatred of sin
    • desire to obey God’s law
    • have a love for the brethren
    • have a desire to be holy
    • have the internal witness of the Holy Spirit.
  • Our assurance of salvation is not based on experience, a prayer, or a ceremony.
  • True Biblical assurance is to be based on the presence of these real and observable measures in our lives.
