RELEASED to proclaim the gospel of the kingdom wherever you go.
 
This study covers the book of Acts. The title, "Acts of the Apostles," distorts the thrust of the book. Only two apostles are the focus of the book, Peter, then Paul. John is mentioned as is James, but the others are not. The more appropriate name should be "Acts of the Holy Spirit". Because the Holy Spirit is the one performing the Acts, by empowering the early church, specifically, through Peter, then Paul, to take the message of the risen Messiah from the Upper Room in Acts 1, to Paul's priva

Sermon audio by Pastor Michael Rauls Luke 14:15-24 (ESV) 15 When one of those who reclined at table with him heard these things, he said to him, “Blessed is everyone who will eat bread in the kingdom of God!” 16 But he said to him, “A man once gave a great banquet and invited many. 17 And at the time for the banquet he sent his servant to say to th…
 
We often talk a lot about restoring the Church to its early or original form. We dream of being filled with God's power and used for His glory in like or greater fashion. If we are really serious about this, we must take cues from Acts 4. After narrowly escaping death, the Disciples return to the Church and have one of the most consequential prayer…
 
After wrapping up the Flip Side Book Club's reading of Spiritual Friendship, Noah interviews author Wes Hill on the book's subject of providing a path of love for celibate gay Christians. A path that still follows the Bible's command for sex to be within the marriage of a man and a woman. The interview talks through the different labels of "same se…
 
I want Jesus to be the most important thing in my life! When He matters the most, the other things that matter begin to come alive. He's the source by which all of life flows through! He does not want to have to fight for first place in our life. When we realize that His Love for us doesn't compare to anything or anyone else and we give him first p…
 
The Bible is full of stories and accounts that paint a cohesive and complete picture of God. Genesis 16 should not be overlooked in our quest to know God and make Him known. It features Abraham and Sarah trying to come to terms with God's will, and shows how Hagar suffered as a result of their mishandling and manipulation. On both sides, we find pe…
 
Jesus often talked about the cost that would be associated with following Him. He prepped His followers for the trial that would be ahead of them, foreshadowing the events of Acts. In Acts 4, the Disciples faced trial before the very authorities that had sentenced Jesus to death. Like Jesus, they did so with an absolute fearlessness. Peter's remark…
 
Sermon Audio by Michael Rauls Matthew 13:10-17 (ESV) 10 Then the disciples came and said to him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” 11 And he answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. 12 For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but…
 
Series: N/A Service: Sun AM Type: Sermon Speaker: David West In 2 Kings 7, four lepers in the Syrian seige of Samaria went to the enemy encampment and found it deserted. They filled their bellies with food and took some valuables and hid them. They then realized that it was wrong to keep this good news to themselves. So they shared the good news wi…
 
In Acts 3 we get a snapshot of what day to day life was like for the Disciples after the Church launched. Peter and John, filled with a burden and passion to show and share Jesus Christ, set an example for us all to follow. In this message we examine their patterns and consider what should translate to our own lives. We find a clear reminder that i…
 
2020 turned many of our assumptions and expectations upside down. Perhaps this leaves us a bit timid at being optimistic at what might be in store in 2021. In this week's message, we study a single verse from God's Word that seeks to raise our spirits and anchor our hopes in God's Sovereign Plan. We may not completely relate to the story that leads…

The Church is called "The Body of Christ", which is often understood in a merely spiritual or symbolic way. However, this couldn't be further from the idea. In the Incarnation, God became a literal, flesh and blood man. Therefore, when the Church is called The Body of Christ, we should immediately think of a literal, flesh and blood gathering of Go…
 
As 2020 comes to an end, it's right that we take time and reflect on the year that has been. If there's one word that sums up 2020 it's STRUGGLE. We have collectively faced hardships and challenges that have made the year difficult for us all. We look ahead to 2021 with hope and optimism, but in order to be ready for what's next, we must understand…
 
When we're young, Christmas captures our affection and anticipation with a sense of wonder and awe. The season builds and builds, and we look forward to all of the joy it promises to bring. We often are convinced that a single gift could change our world. It may be something so simple to adult eyes and minds, but to a child, it seems to make all th…
 
The Gift of Christmas is that we can know God through Christ. This is truly the gift that keeps on giving, as every day we can unwrap a new blessing. Being wrapped in God's presence, we truly experience the most wonderful life. When observing the early Church, there's a clear embodiment of the joy available exclusively in Christ. In Acts 2, Luke dr…
 
Jesus is the reason for the season! And this is the season where we pause to celebrate that Jesus was born to be crucified so that we could be FULLY ALIVE. His birth was unlike any other. The day He was born, it marked our world for eternity! Truly He was the one true light that all mankind was looking for. The light of the world lives inside of us…
 
When the Church began there were no traditions or styles, there wasn't even a finished Bible, and there were no professional worship bands. When it all started on that Pentecost Sunday around 30 AD, the Church in its original form was a movement. The Church was designated by Jesus Christ as The Movement of God that would change the whole world. It …
 
Every generation of believers wrestles with a similar fear: "Is this the end?" No, not the end of days, but the end of our faith. We feel encroached and oppressed by secular society. We wonder about the Church's longevity. We worry about Christianity and its influence being on the ropes. These rumors and whispers of Christianity's demise are comple…
