Text: Mark 16:15
Many are the needs of our day…
1) The need for peace in war-torn areas around the world.
2) The need for food and clothing in poverty stricken countries.
3) The need for loving families, civil rights, good paying jobs, etc.
These needs are certainly noble and very important, yet I suggest that the greatest need for our world is evangelism… Sharing the gospel with every person. Preaching the word everywhere – Acts 8:5 tells us...
Text: Proverbs 14:34
Most of us place a high value on “personal” messages.
Form letters and mass mailings are the norm in our day, so it is very refreshing to receive a “personal” note from a person or organization. Some have made a concerted effort to make their mailings seem to be “one-of-a-kind.”
Today it is difficult to tell what is personal correspondence and what is “mass mailing.”
Sometimes it may seem the same with scripture...
GOD’S LOOKING FOR A MAN
Text: Ezekiel 22:23-30
God searches throughout His creation looking for those He can receive in salvation and in service for those who desire to serve Him. This morning, God is…
A man who will stand in the midst of a perverted land and will fill the gap, but in Israel’s time He proclaimed that He found none.
In Luke 19:9 , Jesus came “to seek and to save that which was lost.” Because He was the only one that could...
What Will You Do With Jesus?
Text: Matthew 27:21-25
Pilate at the trail of Jesus would ask a question to the religious standing before him desiring this one named Jesus who had come, they supposed in their mind to take away their authority and power…
This morning we are asked the same question…
This morning to you, Calvary… It is…
a direct question.
a disturbing question.
a personal question.
an imperative question.
a present question.
a pressing question.
…And it is a...
I See A Well
Genesis 21:14-31 (Text – Vs. 19)
Wells play a very vital and important role in the bible.
Wells represent life, prosperity and abundance.
It is No wonder numerous biblical characters from Abraham to Isaac, Jacob and Moses -even our Lord Jesus Christ had a story to tell besides a well.
It was Jesus who stood at Jacob’s well in John 4 that He said this about wells… “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that...
Three Things Everybody Ought To Know!
II Timothy 1:8-12
We have all heard it… “It is not what you know but who you know.”
I remember as a child watching GI Joe cartoons and they would always end with a life application and then GI Joe would say, “And knowing is half the battle”
There are many ways to know something. John the Apostle would use the word “γινώσκw” meaning to just simply “To know something or to know of something!”
When it comes to...
I Look To The Hills
Text: Psalm 121:1
I must admit that there are times that problems come out of nowhere and then there are those times you can look and see problems arising from a mile away and you have time to do something about it.
The sweet psalmist of Israel should have seen this one coming but in this case the problem is now there… Maybe for David it was wishful thinking… After all who would even suspect your…
Flesh and blood

Let Us Praise Him!
Text: Psalm 117:1-2
Today, I stand here in this pulpit thankful. I know that my attitude sometimes does not reflect that but I truly am thankful for all that God has done personally for me.
God has given me that which I could not obtain, I do not deserve, and honestly did not desire. He has given me things in my life that I am not worthy to have.
If you will allow me I want to give you a few of those things God has and is continuing to give, in spite of...
What Is A Local Church?
Text: Deuteronomy 12:1-12
I believe in patterns… I know that God is a God of patterns. He has not changed, the Bible says that, and I believe that. When it comes to God’s plan I believe in the local church. I know it is the will of God for every born again Christian to be a member of a Scriptural New Testament Church (Baptist).
Many use the excuse, “I am part of God’s universal church”. Allow me to correct your theology. There is no...
We Have All Missed The Mark!
Text: Romans 3:23
We get our text this morning from Vs. 23… “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God”
We have all sinned. The word sin, the word ἥμαρτον means to miss the mark. The mark this morning is not some…
or something we are striving for.
The mark is not determined by…
What we have done
What we are going to do
Your good deeds
or Financial contributions
