The Church: Why Are We Here? NEW
Like people, government leaders and businesses, sometimes local churches lose their way and forget why we're here and what our true mission is in this world. This sermon is a reminder that the church exists to have a dynamic relationship with God through worship, prayer and the Word, a dynamic relationship with other believers through true and authentic Christian fellowship and a dynamic relationship with unbelievers through evangelism.
Seeds & Soils
A sermon on the doctrine of salvation based on Matthew 13:1-23
The Priority of Repentance NEW
While the word "repentance" is found throughout the Bible in both Old and New Testaments, it seems to have fallen out of favor in the church in our day. It is thought by many to be a negative term, and yet it was at the forefront of the ministries of John the Baptist, Jesus Christ and the Apostles.
This message seeks to correct that misunderstanding and show the priority the Bible places upon repentance in the conversion of sinners and a lifestyle of true biblical repentance.
Where Are We and How Did We Get Here?
In this study of Romans 1, Ron Burtz attempts to answer the questions "Where are we as a culture?" and "How did we decline so far and so fast?" This message looks at such biblical themes as the righteousness and wrath of God, the glorious gospel of Christ and how a society gets into a situation of being abandoned by God.
Love One Another=Agape & Koinonia
A message delivered to the annual Love One Another Banquet at Victory Baptist Church, Fullerton, NE on February 24, 2023. This message defines the Greek words Agape (love) and koinonia (fellowship) and calls the church to love one another with the love of Christ and live in God's intrusive community in true Christian fellowship.
Seeing the Glory of God
In this final service at Hope Christian Reformed Church, former Pastor John Keizer returns to preach a special closing message to the congregation. Preaching from John 11 and the account of the Lord's raising of Lazarus, Pastor John brings a powerful message about the glory of God as it is displayed in all the events of our lives both happy and sad.
The service closes with the congregation singing "All Glory Be to Christ."
