Good Tidings: The Glory Returns (JOY)
In this episode we will dive into the second of a five part Advent series titled "Good Tidings".
Now in this message, Pastor Harris will focus on the unclean and ritually contaminated shepards who God chose to be the first to visit his son, the lamb of God, the savior. Why wouldn’t God choose someone more knowledgeable, or more important, or more religious? Well, we are all about to find out.
So it is with great JOY that we present this message, along with its original intro by Kyler Kanady, titled, “The Glory Returns”.
Good Tidings: Aided and Abetted (HOPE)
The first of five advent messages this season. Pastor Harris delivered these messages not too long ago in 2018. In this episode we will learn how Augustus Caesar unknowingly enabled several ancient prophecies allowing two insignificant peasant people to be in the right place at the right time.

MISSIONS: The Mission in Tharaka Kenya with Each One Feed One
Missions are crucial in ministry. We hope you enjoy this unique story of a partnership between a pastor and a missionary that started over 35 years ago and how a simple unscheduled meeting at a church in downtown Oklahoma City helped fuel a mission to spread the gospel on the other side of the globe for so many years.
In this episode Crystal Harris, Amy Moffiet and Jamie Russell are joined by Linda McCarter, wife of the late Cal McCarter. Cal and Linda started their mission known as Each One Feed One many years ago. We will start from the beginning with Linda to hear her story of how she and Cal met, and bring it to current day and hear about the amazing campus in Tharaka, Kenya that now provides kids a healthy meals, quality education, clothing, medical care, and a Christian environment where the Gospel of Jesus is shared.
We are also joined via phone by Jeff McCarter and will hear his story as he and his siblings grew up as a family of missionaries in Africa.
We hope those that listen enjoy this story of missions and God’s grace. Words cannot describe how passionate Pastor Harris was about this mission, and I don't know that we will ever fully comprehend the pure drive and determination that Cal McCarter must have had to venture his family into this Faith Safari.
Essentials of the Faith: A Decision of Destiny
Pastor Harris will distinguish the difference between the mean of salvation and the effects of salvation. He will explain to us the meaning of grace and the many things we receive from God that we cannot earn and do not deserve: His love, His forgiveness, His righteousness, His acceptance, His mercy, His redemption, His eternal life. These are free gifts upon salvation given to us by God if we are willing to receive them.
Pastor Harris will explain the meaning of repentance and how it goes hand in hand with salvation. Each of us have a decision to make for ourselves-will I trust in Christ or will I trust in my works? I pray you choose Him.
Essentials of the Faith: Justification
In this episode Pastor Harris will help us understand the concept of justification and the important role it plays in the life of a believer. Justification allows us to walk in grace, not works righteousness. Our righteousness is found in Christ alone. Pastor will teach that the greatest benefit of justification is the freedom we have from condemnation.
It’s amazing how even after his death,Nick is still reaching people. Jesus is still using him to show truth to others. Can’t tell you enough how thankful I am for these teachings.
Best biblical teacher ever
Nick Harris explains the message of God’s grace as shown throughout the Old and New Testaments in clear language and with the power of the Holy Spirit. Although Nick has gone on to Heaven, his messages remain with us to remind us that we cannot earn our way to God- God has given us the right to be His heirs through our Lord Jesus Christ. Give yourself the gift of receiving Nick’s messages!
I’m so excited for this podcast.
