1 Timothy 6:11-16 - What Is A Good Pastor?




What is a good pastor? Is it his use of humor? Is it the way he programs Sunday services? As Paul closes his letter to Timothy and the church in Ephesus, he charges Timothy to pastor the church of Ephesus well. He details what it will take to him to be a good pastor. What we learn is not just what it takes to be a good pastor but what it takes for anyone in the church leading a ministry to do it well for God's honor and glory.

1 Peter 1:10-12 - Can I Trust the Bible?



An increasing number of professors in Christian colleges tell their students the Bible can’t be trusted. They tell students that the biblical writers occasionally missed what God was saying or that God is now saying or doing something new. They believe God was behind the concepts in the Bible but not actual words. Is this true? Can I trust the Bible? In this message, we find hope when facing the hard times of biblical doubt.

Reasons to Believe - Personal Reasons




Imagine traveling with your family on summer vacation, your GPS mistakenly guided you through a gang infested area of Los Angeles. You hit a pothole, bursting your tire, leaving you stranded in the worst part of town. While examining your tire, six young men emerge from a nearby building and strut their way in your direction. Your adrenaline begins pumping as you try to imagine ways to protect your wife and children. You could be beaten or even killed in the next few moments. How would things change if you knew those young men just left a Bible study? At the end of the day, while there are many logical reasons to believe the Bible, the most powerful reasons is the Bible's ability to change our lives. In this study, we learn how the Bible goes about changing us and learn a practical strategy to let the Bible do its work in our lives.

Reasons to Believe - Providential Reasons

edge


Have you read The Da Vinci Code? It is currently the best selling novel of the twenty-first century. While the book is fiction, it claims that descriptions of all artwork, architecture and documents in the book are accurate. Dan Brown, the author, even suggests there were over 80 alternate gospels which were suppressed from the general public by church councils. It is only in recent years they were re-discovered and we can learn the true identity of Jesus. Is this true? While The Da Vinci Code is fiction, how much of it is historical fact? Were many alternate gospels barred from the public by secret church councils? How were the books in our Bible collected together? In this message, we learn the answer. Along the way, we discover a big difference between the Catholics and Protestants on this issue. This message is what you need to separate the facts and fiction in The Da Vinci Code.

Reasons to Believe - Logical Reasons

Today, it popular culture believes the Bible is based on fantasy more than factual reality. In this first message of the series, Pastor Kurt examines the logical implications of what the Bible claims for itself and the impossibility of considering the Bible a good book mixed with errors.
