What’s So Good About Good Friday?

The Kingman Evangelical Ministerial Association Annual Good Friday Service had ten local churches and Pastor's represented at the host church: Family Bible Church. The program was only one hour in length with Scripture readings, Hymns and Praise music, Special music and four dramatic readings given by four local Pastors: the Cry of Forgiveness: the Apostle Peter, the Cry of Relief: Simon of Cyrene, the Cry of Confession: the Thief on the Cross and the Cry of Lordship: the Centurion. Our Father God smiles when He sees the Church of Kingman come together crossing congregational lines, borders and boundaries all for His glory and for the furtherance of His powerful Gospel.

Dead to the Law but Alive to Christ – Part Two



Dead to the Law but Alive to Christ

After being away from our Romans study for a few months we are back with this week's message covering Romans 7:1-6. "Dead the the Law but Alive to Christ!" (Married? YES, But to Which Husband?) 1. We have been released from the law (Romans 7:1-3) The Old Law and Old Marriage) 2. We have been joined to Christ! Romans 7:4-6 (The New Liberty and New Marriage) We have a new freedom, a new family, a new fruitfulness and a new life in Christ! Let's bring this home as we listen for Life!

Eternal Life for One Who Trusts

How does a person come to faith and experience true assurance of salvation? All of mankind is sure of their own goodness and have a self-righteousness that they expect will usher them into heaven and before the throne of God. The truth is "There is none righteous no not one." (Romans 3:10-18) The message from Psalm 16:1-11 is from the heart of King David and is an appeal to the lost to be found. The irony is that without exception all who are lost think they are already found and in fact not lost at all! How do you rescue someone lost if they don't think they are? It is God and God alone who chooses us, calls us, redeems us, forgives and pardons us, justifies and sanctifies and ultimately glorifies us. Unless God opens our eyes and ears to see and hear God's voice none of us will be saved. Pastor Pete teaches this week from Psalm 16: "Eternal Life for One Who Trusts." A Matter of Life and Death!

Characteristics of the Godly

King David knew a little about what true righteousness and holiness looked like. He had just completed giving a concise explanation on what the characteristics of the godless looked like in Psalm 14: and now in Psalm 15: he gives the opposite synopsis on the characteristics of the Godly. In this week's message Pastor Pete teaches on what God inspects and inspects. Two honest questions from a holy God in verse one of Psalm 15: and then five honest answers from holy men and women on what God expects and inspects in verses two through six. Our character, our conversation, our relationships, our business concerns and our personal commitments are all an honest insight into true Christ like holiness.

“Characteristics of the Godless”

This week as we come back to the study of the Psalms Pastor Pete unwraps Psalm 14: Verse one begins: "The fool has said in his heart there is no God." How do we as believers deal with unbelievers? The first thing we have to do is come to understand the fundamental difference in world views we have with them and vise versa. A Biblical perspective will go a long way in helping us deal with our unsaved friends, relatives, associates and neighbors. It is never our prerogative to call someone a fool, that is God's place, not ours. Unbelievers prove they are fools because of their unbelief and as a result their fallen and depraved choices in life.Sermon Title: "Characteristics of the Godless" (The Insanity of Depravity) Psalm 14: 1-7 Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!

Do the Needful SOUL WORK

Over the last number of weeks we've been going through the Book of Romans line by line, word by word, precept by precept. The practical application sometimes gets lost in the overwhelming avalanche of Biblical truths and life principles. In this week's lesson we take a brief departure from the Book of Romans to do a physical and spiritual check-up to see what adjustments need to be made to our diet and overall health, both physically and spiritually. Our souls, our bodies, our hearts, our lives and minds matter to God and should to us as well. "Doing the Needful Soul Work" What story will our physical and spiritual check-ups tell us as the Body of Christ? Soul Sickness is curable if we are willing to take the right medicines. Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!



“Putting Sin to Death: from Principle to Practice” Part Three

Not all slavery is bad. Now there's a controversial statement! The Apostle Paul referred to himself as the writer of Scripture in many of his New Testament books as a slave of Jesus Christ. Romans chapter 6: suggests we are either a slave of Satan and of sin or we are a slave of righteousness and of God as our Master and LORD. We have already been given victory over sin. Claiming it, living in it, choosing to experience it is something else entirely. The old illustration of Fact: the Steam Engine, Faith: the Coal Car and Feeling: the Caboose serves as an excellent reminder of how we must choose to Know the Truth, Reckon it to be fact by faith and then to choose to yield our feelings and members to the truth by faith. When we climb out of the caboose of feelings and into the engine of faith we begin to see spiritual progress as we collect momentum in our life of faith. This week's message is part three in "Putting Sin to Death: from Principle to Practice" (The Doctrine of Sanctification in Practice - YIELD) Romans 6:15-23 Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!



Putting Sin to Death: from Principle to Practice Part Two

This week's message from the heart of God is: "Putting Sin to Death: From Principle to Practice" (The Doctrine of Sanctification in Practice - RECKON) From Romans 6:18,19. This message from Pastor Pete is the nuts and bolts of putting sin to death in our practice. We may know what's right and even believe what's right but how do we practically put sin to death in our practice. Perfect makes practice! Listen for Life as we Bring it Home!
