How Do I (We) Get Motivated?

When looking at the state of the church and the church in the state we see inertia in the wrong direction. Entire theme parks are created for our amusement playing on the pull of gravity, sliding, falling and spinning downhill can be great fun until we reach the bottom. We either stay at the bottom until we die or we find ourselves seeking even more thrill rides to take us even farther downhill and away from our life goals and dreams. When will we decide to do some hard climbing for the glory of God? When will we seek once again the bliss of accomplishing difficult goals and great heights of achievement? When will we selflessly give our lives away to pull others from the flames of destruction? Unfortunately, any climbing we do often comes from a motivation of self-effort. The church and professing believers must ultimately take the blame for the state of the church and the state of the state we find ourselves in. How will things change? What will it take to move the true believer from being a couch potato to being motivated to take the hard climb as a Christ exalting believer resulting in the blood, sweat and tears of evangelism, missions and life change that affects and infects all of society? Godly, Christ honoring, Biblical motivation is the key. Whatever motivates you moves you, compels you and ultimately challenges you to choose to climb instead of slide into oblivion. Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!




Picking Up the Cross




The Harvest

This message is the first of five for this year's October Missions Month. Our objective is to challenge, motivate and send out from F.B.C. those who profess to know Christ, to passionately seek to Make Him Known by faithfully proclaiming the gospel message through our living testimony and the sharing of the gospel itself from the pages of Holy Scripture. Tim and GLoria Hagquist, with World Venture, share a report on their work in gathering in the Harvest and share a brief film clip of a story of the harvest and the need to passionately gather in the harvest and how it takes a team to get it done. Our hope this month is that we will see God use His faithful servants to Bring it Home as others listen for LIFE!

How Should I Vote on November 8, 2016?

What a mess! Have you ever witnessed such confusion and vitriolic hatred for the upcoming elections? What is a true believer to do when facing the 2016 elections or any election for that matter? Should we just give up sincerely believing God has it all under control and what we do or don't do won't affect the ultimate outcome? What if our vote and our involvement in government really made a difference? Can we just sit this one out believing other candidates and elections will come along where the choices are more palatable to our liking? What are the consequences to our Constitutional Republic if we choose to not get involved? Why are we where we are as a nation? What must the church and individual believer do to make a difference regardless of the outcome? Let's Bring it Home as we Listen for LIFE!




Narrow Gate, Narrow Way

This Sunday’s message is an expository message that uncovers the climax of the Sermon on the Mount, as we read in Matthew 7:13-14. It discusses how God presents us with daily choices, but most importantly, the ultimate choice. Will we choose the narrow gate or the broad gate, the narrow way or the wide way? Will we choose God or choose mammon? Will we choose life or death? Without delving too much into God’s perspective of foreordination, this message focuses on the human perspective of choice and free will.




What Jesus Wants

What is legalism in contrast to real religion? The Pharisees in Jesus time were legalists. Is there legalism in the church today? Are there Pharisees in the church today? What Jesus wants is grace not legalism, mercy instead of a condemning attitude. Scripture says that the multitudes heard Him gladly. Why? Because He meets us where we are. And thank the Lord He doesn’t leave us there!




Why Does Evil and Fear Reign Supreme in our World?

Is evil on the rise? Does God not see the problem? Habakkuk asks these questions when it seemed as if there was no reasonable solution for the condition of God's people. Listen as Grif leads us through the process with Habakkuk, from fear to confusion to faith and trust.

The Greatness of God




Lloyd and Jan Chinn – Ghana Africa

Lloyd and Jan Chinn of World Venture and Directors of the African Continent of over 100+ missionaries were used of the Lord to sing and share the Biblical truths of the nature and character of God in our lives. The Exodus account and the life of Moses as he was charged of Yahweh to deliver His people from the land of bondage out from under the heavy hand of Pharaoh is the topic under consideration in this message. What if the Book of Exodus wasn't so much about the exodus at all but all about God's glory seen through man's sin and obstinacy? We pray God Brings it Home as you Listen for Life!




From Sinking to Swimming

Psalm 13: seems like an unlikely song to be sung to the Lord. And yet, the Psalmist, not unlike you or me struggled with whether or not God was and is listening to our heart cry and watching our struggle here on earth. I love the psalms for their honesty and transparency. A universal weakness in all of us human beings is our impatience. We can tend to overdramatize the situation when we sing our pain aloud to anyone who will hear us. While we are being honest enough to tell Him the truth of our impatience could we, would we take a moment to consider that God does indeed care for each one of us as He does the sparrow. When we look back in time and consider all God has done for us, we should draw comfort that the same God who was there with us and for us in the past will be with us in the present and future. Our confidence cannot come from our feelings and circumstances but in an inner assurance of God's goodness and loving kindness. Let's Bring it Home as we Listen for Life!
