This podcast is dedicated to sharing the preaching and teaching from New Horizons Christian Church of Winter Garden, Florida. In the coming weeks and months we may begin to offer more in audio content such as devotional thoughts, teaching, discussion, etc.
New Horizons Christian Church is an independent Christian Church committed to obeying the teaching of the Word of God, reflecting the character & example of Jesus Christ and following the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Our singular Mission, Vision and Purpose is found in the simple truth of "Not I but Christ" as we seek to increase the role of Jesus in our lives and ministry to the community as we seek to IMPACT, INFLUENCE and INVEST in our neighborhood and community for His Name's sake!
This Sunday, Frank concludes the first chapter of Mark in our ongoing series from the book of Mark. Jesus understood His purpose, to share the Gospel and teach the message of His kingdom and God's will. Yet, in the midst of focus, He also acted with compassion, helping and heading many people, but He never lost His primary motivation from God, to lead people to turn back to the Father.
Demons & Sinners
This Sunday, Frank concludes the first chapter of Mark in this message, a second look at Jesus' authority. In this week's message His authority is called into question by the religious leaders, mostly because of His popularity with the people as He taught. With a bit of irony, we see that demons He confronted recognized His authority over them while some people questioned His ability to heal and forgive sin. Join us today as we look at the significant impact those truths still have for us as believers today.
This Sunday, Frank continues our sermon series by looking at the second half of Mark chapter one. In this passage we have a clear recognition of Jesus Christ's authority. Whether facing the temptations of Satan or calling His first disciples, His authority was plainly evident. Through this week's message we hope to make application for how we can submit to His authority in our daily life.
Straight Path in a Crooked World
This Sunday, we go back to the beginning of the book of Mark and look together at the announcement of John the Baptist about the coming of Christ.
John preached to people who needed real truth and his simple message of repentance struck a chord for his listeners, drawing many to hear that message. But in truth, he understood and embraced that he was not the message, but the messenger; and when the time came, he pointed the crowds to Jesus! It is a challenge and opportunity that each of us have even today--to share the good news and point people to Christ.
Amazement at the Empty Tomb
So much has changed since last Easter. The world has been shaken. Life has been disrupted and what we once called normal seems like it may never return. It’s easy to be discouraged when the ground beneath us feels like shifting sand. Now, more than ever, we need to stand on the truth of Easter. A day which changed our eternity and our world forever. Death was defeated, sin was conquered and death was rendered powerless. Today, may we remember the truth of Easter, the power of the resurrection, and the promise of eternity. Yes, the world has been shaken, but the grave is still empty and Jesus…is still risen!
This Sunday, Frank teaches from the sixteenth chapter of Mark and reminds us again of important truths regarding the Resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ and why, even today, there is still Amazement at the Empty Tomb.
God Visits Calvary
Did you ever get in trouble for something you didn't do? You took the blame even though you we're the one who did something wrong. You endured the consequences of punishment for someone else's error.
This Sunday, Frank begins our new sermon series over the book of Mark by starting at the end of the book in Mark 15. Together we will look a a familiar story--a story of our grace purchased by Christ on the cross--and perhaps see the events of that story in a way we haven't considered.
True to the Word
I appreciate the preaching and teaching content that comes from this church. I love the commitment to Biblical truths. That is not to say other churches don't do that. It just seems clear that NHCC has made a commitment to make sure the Word of God is not only referenced in the message but the real life applications are highlighted through those biblical truths.
