Abraham’s (My) Righteousness – Part Two

There is much misunderstanding and outright false teaching today on what true salvation is. The Apostle Paul teaches, in his letter to the church at Rome, three indisputable truths regarding our self-righteousness: 1.) Our righteousness does not come from our works, (Romans 4:1-8) 2.) Our righteousness does not come from ceremonial religion (Romans 4:8-12) and 3.) Our righteousness does not come from the LAW. (Romans 8:13-17). Listen for LIFE!



Abraham’s Righteousness – Part One

So much controversy over the subject of salvation and whether or not we need it or not. Isn't it pretty evident that we are in trouble? That society and mankind in general is morally bankrupt and depraved? What hope do we have apart from Christ alone, Faith alone, Grace alone, from the Scriptures alone for the Glory of God alone? In this section of Romans Pastor Pete opens chapter four with the first of four parts on the person of Abraham, revered and adored by Jews and Gentiles alike. From the life of Abraham, saved by faith, we learn: 1. The Man, 2. The Heart, 3. The Scripture, 4. The Choice, and 5. The Way, the Truth and the LIFE! (Romans 4:1-8) Listen for LIFE!

The Righteousness of Jesus Christ

The Apostle Paul continues to explain the Doctrine of Justification by Faith: 1.) The Source of our Justification: The Grace of Grace of God; 2.) The Grounds for our Justification: The Cross of Christ; 3.) The Means of our Justification: The Faith of the Redeemed; and lastly, 4.) The The Effect of our Justification: Union with Christ and Communion with the Saints of God. Listen for Life!



“But Now!”

Pastor Pete takes another look at Romans 3:21-25 in a message entitled: "BUT NOW!" The Apostle Paul has just completed his lengthy doctrinal teaching on the Doctrine of Condemnation and now introduces the Doctrine of Justification by Faith in this passage. How appropriate for the first two words of this teaching to be the words, "BUT NOW!" This is an amazing passage introducing the deep Biblical truths of Propitiation, Redemption and Justification in our salvation. Listen for LIFE!



What Is God’s Standard for Righteousness?

Have you ever asked yourself the question, "What Does God Want?" If we are to get to heaven and not end up in hell what will it take to get us there? Pastor Pete shares the Apostle Paul's explanation of God's standard of righteousness, how we can bring God satisfaction? In other words, What does God want from us? It doesn't get more practical than this folks! (Romans 3:21-25a) Listen for Life!



What Will Hell Be Like? Part Two

The terrors of hell are rarely taught or taken seriously and yet the Scriptures teach more on the reality of hell than even of heaven. Did you know our Lord Jesus taught more on this subject than every Old and New Testament writer combined? Pastor Pete shares the sobering truth for the unbeliever of an eternity in hell fire and shares for the believer the joy and assurance of knowing we don't have to endure endless pain, agony, darkness and eternal retribution. Do you know for sure where you will spend eternity? Listen for LIFE!

“What Will Hell Be Like?”

The subject of hell is often rejected as a cruel and unbiblical doctrine simply because in our finite minds we conclude the doctrine of hell to be unfair and unlike the Person and character of God, as we chose to see Him, a God of love and mercy. Hell is a real place with real people experiencing real pain, loss, unimaginable suffering, darkness and retribution for all eternity. Modern Christianity, Churches and Preachers do their utmost to ignore this doctrine believing it will only alienate the lost. They prefer to market the church and the gospel with doctrines that will put God and eternity in the best light. Promises are made that to experience Christ is to experience your best life now. "With eternity in view: What Will Hell Be Like?" - Part One, Pastor Pete opens the subject of the horrors of hell and what it will take to save us from eternal punishment. LISTEN FOR LIFE!



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? Views on heaven and hell and testimonials of people who say they died and went to heaven will be examined. 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. Listen for Life!
