What Will Heaven Be Like? Part Three

Synopsis: In part three on "What Will Heaven Be Like?" Pastor Pete answers the following three questions: 1.) Heaven's Identity: Why Should We Desire to Go to Heaven? 2.) Heaven's Activity: What Will We Be Doing in Heaven? and lastly, 3.) Heaven's Occupancy: Who Will be There in Heaven? In case any of us wonder how our identity, activity and personality will be affected, honestly, our complete transformation will be all about Christ and His glory, exaltation and worship. There will be no thought whatsoever for me, myself or I. The middle initial of SIN is "I." Listen for LIFE!

What Will Heaven Be Like? Part Two

Pastor Pete returns to the subject of heaven in this second part message on "With Eternity in View? - What will Heaven Be Like?" The fact of eternity? Heaven or Hell?

A careful biblical explanation of what the Scriptures teach on the reality of heaven will be declared for the edification of the individual hearer and for the church body as a whole.

A Prayer for God’s Mercy

Today our society, our hospitals and psych wards are full of people who are overcome and overwhelmed with guilt and sorrow over their sin. Does their sorrow lead them to true godly repentance? Often those who live their lives with unconfessed sin end up medicating their guilt and never find for themselves the peace and confidence God freely offers to all of us through His mercy and grace. The solution for a great many of us is very simple: Confession is good for the mind, for the body and for the soul. Confession to God first and foremost and then, when appropriate, to others we have wronged. Pastor Pete unpacks the first of David's penitent psalms in Psalm 6:1-10. " A Prayer for God's Mercy" - (The Conquering Power of Confessing Sin) - 1.) The Great Problem of Unconfessed Sin. (Psalm 6:1-7); 2.) The Great Power of Confessed Sin. (Psalm 6:8-10) Listen for LIFE!

Christmas Eve Service

“Without Wax?”

The word "Sincere" in the Latin means, "Without Wax." Hear the story of the broken gift of pottery this Christmas. What we offer to God is broken, imperfect and flawed. What must we do to offer God the perfect and sinless Gift He requires? Listen for LIFE!

A Morning Prayer For Guidance

Pastor Pete returns this week to the series on the first book of Psalms 1-41. This week: Psalm 5: "A Morning Prayer for Guidance" (How to Get Ready, Get Set and Go) first thing in the morning. We must start our day being prayerful, being real and receiving with thanks God's blessings.We often get distracted first thing in the morning thinking about ourselves, our agenda, our needs and we forget to give God the first place in the best part of the new day. Along with the Psalmist this psalm, (song) is a wonderful exhortation to believers on how to start each new day. Listen for LIFE!

Goodness Gracious! Part Three

In Romans 3:18-20 Paul completes his thorough Doctrine of Condemnation. In these last few verses Paul summarizes the human condition as he has carefully explained from Romans 1:18-3:20. Mankind has no fear of God, therefore no desire to please or to worship God. We all stand Guilty as Charged before the Court of Heaven. "Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin." - Romans 3:20 Listen for LIFE!

Goodness Gracious! Part Two

Pastor Pete opens up the second of a three part mini series on the last section of the Doctrine of Condemnation from Romans 3:17-19. In these powerful verses the Apostle Paul unwraps the two heart conditions that expose the true spiritual depravity and fallenness of mankind: 1.) His Mouth and 2.) His Walk or Destination. The words of man condemn us because they come from the heart. Words start in the heart and move to the throat, dances on our tongues, rests on our lips and falls and runs from our mouths. The way and walk of man are swift to shed blood, misery and destruction are in their ways and the way of peace they have not known. Listen for LIFE!

Goodness Gracious!

Imagine standing in a courtroom with the Judge, Jury, Prosecuting attorney and you. You stand alone as the accused. You are your own witness, your own defense lawyer and your own support. No one is there to validate your claim of innocence. God is the Judge. God is the prosecuting attorney. God is the witness to your crimes of a life filled with sinful conduct and disobedience to the revealed will of God. The situation looks hopeless as the whole world stands guilty and condemned before the righteous and holy Judge. Before there can be a sentence from the Bench and a righteous verdict passed down we need to hear once again, from the Court Reporter the charge and the sentence hanging over all of our heads. This is the subject matter as we conclude the doctrine of Condemnation in Romans 3:9-20. Listen for LIFE!
