    Go Low - VISION SUNDAY 2020

    Go Low - VISION SUNDAY 2020

    Our vision as a church in 2020 can be summed up in two simple words: "Go Low."

    Jesus said, "Go quickly to the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in the poor and crippled and blind and lame... Go out to the highways and hedges and compel people to come in, that my house may be filled." (Luke 14:21 & 23)

    Our vision is nothing new or fancy. It's not some strategy contrived for church growth. It's just getting back to the heart of the gospel and living the way Jesus lived. It's keeping our eyes open to people in need, keeping our heart open to the wind of the Spirit, and moving with compassion toward the ones others are moving away from.

    Praise is the Breakthrough

    Praise is the Breakthrough

    Over and over again scripture shows us that audacious praise leads to individual and corporate breakthrough in the Body of Christ. As we praise God in the midst of hard seasons we expect to see his kingdom impact our realities on earth. But Jesus also said, "The kingdom of God is not coming in ways that can be observed...for behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you." So, while it's fitting to look for breakthrough outside ourselves, the greatest breakthrough occurs within us, and praise is the breakthrough.

    A Tale Of Two Anointings (Desire)

    A Tale Of Two Anointings (Desire)

    During this short series on anointing we've talked about how disobedience, stemming from fear, can make the difference between a life that looks empowered and a life that looks ordinary. In this final message we look at the power of desire and the fears and failure that can come when one's desire is misaligned with God's will.

    A Tale Of Two Anointings (Image)

    Last week we began a short series on what it takes to walk in the anointing that God empowers us with, radical obedience to God being the major marker. Today we look at the temptation to choose image and reputation over obedience and the costly outcome it has.

    A Tale Of Two Anointings (Trust)

    A Tale Of Two Anointings (Trust)

    As we pray for God to empower you in the new year we begin a short series on the subject of anointing. Learning from the lives of King David and King Saul, we will explore what enabled one man to walk in his anointing (God's power) while the other failed to do so. Ultimately, it all hinges on obedience to God. But as we'll see today, obedience often hinges on the conflict between fear and trust.

    Speak! Life

    Speak! Life

    We all know that words have power. Words build up and tear down. The Bible goes as far as to say, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue." As we look to the new year and situations in our lives that, in the natural, seem hopeless, we look at how to speak life over every situation, knowing we are loved by a supernatural God.

FANTASTIC!

I have been a member of the Open Door since 1975. It is wonderful to be able to have sermons online via this media- no need to collect CDs anymore. The sermons have always been right on- from the delivery on the CROSS, to SIN, to the Church's role in the community and the world. It is always beneficial to listen to these sermons again so as to ingrain the message into our heads that we are NOT our own… we belong to Christ (for all those who have made a profession of faith, and think, walk, talk, and practice His Word's. Thank you for setting this media up. I appreciate it.
