Set Up to be Set Apart (I Peter 1:1-8) Introduction: I want us to appreciate something about what it means to be in Christ. And to have a sense of real joy about our salvation. And to know that In Christ: We were chosen in Him before the foundation of the world We are predestinated unto the adoption…

Intro -- The first day of school in my 5th grade year a pretty new blond girl showed up in our class. I was smitten, but at that age it wasn’t cool to admit you liked a girl, and I had no confidence to talk to her anyway. So it took half the year before, after checking with multiple 3rd parties, I sent…
GLENN PEASE • Sermon • • 1,017 views
By Pastor Glenn Pease We want to look at an Apostle of whom we would know nothing if the New Testament did not tell us of his political affiliation before he became a believer. If a man was called Simon the Democrat or Simon the Republican, you would not be able to draw many conclusions about him because…

Who Do You Say I Am?
Mike Measley • EFBC - Evangelical Free Bible Church • Sermon • • 381 views • 46:58
Conclusion of 'Who Do You Say I AM' Series. We have taken time to look at Who Jesus is. We have taken time to see He is God, come in the flesh to save us from our sin. We have looked at the promises of God for our life and Godliness, and found them pointing to Jesus. We have seen that He is our crucified, buried and resurrected Savior! We have looked at the significance of the resurrection. Now, what are we going to do with all of this? Who Do We say Jesus is? If it really is significant, will we be witnesses?

Peter describes believers in light of Christ, the cornerstone. He describes us as living stones being set next to the cornerstone, forming a Spiritual house, as well as a priesthood of believers. These truths speak to how each believer should be singularly (Christ-Centered) and dependently (Christ-Dependent) serving God. The context that service for God is principally is being transformed into his holy priesthood (1 Peter 2:5) and declaring the riches and mercies that are found in Christ (1 Peter 2:9). The building up that is found in God working through the scriptures to establish us as His Holy, Royal Priesthood, a temple set apart for him. (1 Peter 2:2)

Pastor Jason Spade • Sermon • • 193 views
We all have a individual past. I was a truckdriver, a troublemaker, a drinker, a addict...You get the point. Your past will be something like those things or maybe something completely different. But, you have a past. Than began with sin and may even continue with it as well. Did you know though that you also have a past with God? Did you know He has been working on you far before you began working with Him?

This morning we begin a new sermon series which is somewhat of an oddity around here. Over the next several months we will endeavor to work our way through 1 and 2 Peter. It is fair to ask: “Why study these books at this time?” First, we affirm “all scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching,…

Studying through 1 Peter. Read the book, not books about the book. Background: Look in the book to see the following.

Introduction: Happy Palm Sunday everyone! As the video just showed - the people rejoiced at Christ’s entrance into Jerusalem.

What does it mean to belong?
We are the “People of God.” While this exact phrase is not in our text, the concept is all throughout scripture. Paul has to redefine it for his readers now that the Gentiles are also believing and belonging in Christ. We are going to look as some phrases that are in the text and how they take on a different meaning in light of Jesus the Messiah.
Souls on Fire
Tony Schachle • FARM HILL CHURCH • Sermon • • 74 views • 47:44
Where are you at in your relationship with God? Abraham built an altar between Bethel and Ai. Between the House of God and a heap of ruins. Where is your spiritual life today? What is the direction of your life? Are you moving toward the House of God, a place of spiritual encounter with God? Or are you moving away from God? If you are moving away from God your life is headed for a heap of ruins. The good news is we can return back to the place of an altar and call up on the name of the Lord and the Lord will hear and answer our prayer. Tune into this message today and be encouraged to get out of the middle and get on fire for God!
