Christmas Eve 2010 - King Jesus




The Bible frequently calls Jesus a king. He was called king at his birth, the plaque across the top of his cross called him a king, in Revelation it says he will return as the king of kings. Kings change things for better or worse for many people. Did Jesus change anything in his three years of ministry or was his life nothing more than another interesting fact of history? Join Dr. Trucksess Christmas Eve at the SAMI Center in Spirit Lake, IA as we discover the difference Jesus made in history.

Christmas from Revelation - The Lamb and the Nations



Nobody likes suffering. It separates us from life's pleasures. Suffering frequently looks like nothing more than purposeless agony. There is suffering that is purposeful. Christ can transform our suffering into something that is redemptive. He can transform our suffering into something so powerful that it can reach even the most pagan nations with the gospel. How does he do this? Join Dr. Trucksess for a look at The Lamb and the Nations.

Christmas from Revelation - The Triumph of the Lamb




Why do we hang off the edge of our seats at a football game and sing at the top of our lungs with our favorite bands? We were created by God to be passionate about things that are worth it. That desire was given to us for more than watching sports and music. God gave us these emotions to be passionate about Jesus, the ultimate hero, who won the ultimate victory. Join Pastor Kurt as we cheer The Triumph of the Lamb.

Doctrine - Response and Eternal Destiny




In this final message, we wrap up the series by looking at how the Bible says God will wrap up the world. It may not be what you thought. Even though the sins of a Christian are forgiven through Christ, that does not mean their lives will escape serious review. The deeds of our life are always the basis for judgment. Join Dr. Trucksess as we learn how our choices will impact our eternity even if we are forgiven.

Pastors and Christian counselors are approached every week by people with problems. Some are struggling with an alcohol addiction, men are struggling with internet pornography, women are struggling with materialism. While everyone needs help, the real issue for these problems is much deeper. Most of our struggles come from worshiping the wrong thing! When we worship Christ, most of our problems fade away.

Doctrine - The Church




The church has changed. At one time it involved robes, hymnals, creeds and confession. Today it is jeans and a T-shirt. The pastor may sit on a stool and avoid a pulpit completely. Some are even defining the church more loosely and nothing more than "community and a conversation." Others have opened internet campuses and are experimenting with virtual church. Where do we draw the line? Join Dr. Trucksess as we discover the essence of "the church."

For those of you who are parents, do you remember when you held your first-born child? For first-time parents, the feeling of holding their new born is a combination of humbling and amazing.

Heaven - Eternal Rewards - My Earthly Choices Make An Eternal Difference




As a Christian, our sins are completely forgiven by Christ. The Bible tells us we will not pass into judgment or be condemned. Does this mean it doesn't matter how we live? Will our sins return to haunt us? An ignored topic of the Bible is the doctrine of Eternal Rewards. God promises to reward us for how we live and we can lose reward for the willful sins we commit. Believe it or not, there is a way to insure we can have greater joy in heaven.
