Kent Philpott, MDiv, ThD, has been pastor of Miller Avenue Baptist Church in Mill Valley, CA since 1986 and has presented half-hour Bible exposition sermons on TV since 1984. The series on the Book of Acts is expository preaching—verse by verse, looking at some of the hard issues.
The series on Why We Are Christians is a conversational interview format wherein stories are told of coming to faith in Jesus Christ.

"How People Are Indwelt by Demons" points to occult practices, magic, spiritualism, mindlessness, idolatry, traumatic experiences, and a rejection of God.

In "A Theology of the Demonic" Pastor Kent discusses The Serpent in the Garden, Old Testament prophesies, and who or what are Satan and demons in the New Testament.
Deliver Us from Evil Chapter 3: "Casting Out Demons after the New Testament Era"
"Casting Out Demons after the New Testament Era" looks at Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, and others in the early centuries of Christianity who wrote about and supposedly participated in this ministry.
Advent Sermon 4: Christ Our Peace
Peace in the Bible means both the absence of conflict between nations, tribes, and individuals AND the reconciled relationship between individuals and God made possible by the work of Christ Jesus on the cross.
Advent Sermon 3: Christ Our Joy
What is joy, actually? See 1 Peter 1:8–9 “Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.” Joy is not always what we think it is.
