Sermon

Pursuing Righteousness

September 29th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on 1 Timothy 6, in which Paul charges Timothy (and us) to pursue righteousness, and to keep God's commandments "without spot or blame." How are we to live in light of this radical call to holiness? We are to remember our sin, our need for a savior, and the Good News that that savior, Jesus, has come and completed his work.

Reasonable Faith (Part 5): The Argument from Design

September 29th, 2019

Dr. Michael Nicholson continues his class on introductory apologetics, Reasonable Faith, with a discussion of the "argument from design." Does the complexity of our natural world argue for a creator? An intelligent designer? Can it have arisen by chance? What is Christianity's claim, and does it make sense?

Sermon

His Master's Possessions

September 22nd, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Luke 16, in which Jesus tells an odd parable about a dishonest manager. When we are generous, we are generous with what is God's. In the same way, Jesus is generous with his master's possession, giving us God's own goodness, which alone can save us.

Reasonable Faith (Part 4): The Cosmological Argument

September 22nd, 2019

Dr. Michael Nicholson continues his class on apologetics, Reasonable Faith, with a discussion of what's known as "the cosmological argument." In other words, how does the universe itself show us that there is a God? And what can it tell us about him?

Sermon

God Repents You

September 15th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Luke 15, in which Jesus tells a story about a lost sheep and a lost coin. There is much joy in heaven, he says, over a sinner who repents. But...does that make the Good News dependent on your repentance? Does it make the Good News less good? No...in fact, even repentance is a good work that God accomplishes in you, not something you have to create in yourself.

Sermon

Do What the Good Book Tells You To?

September 8th, 2019

The Rev. Nick Lannon preaches a sermon on Deuteronomy 30, in which Moses asks the people to make a choice: follow God and prosper, turn away and die. Is there Good News for those of us who continually make bad choices? Or who can't follow through on our good intentions? Yes, it's the finished work of Jesus Christ.
