  1. The Place Of Complete Dependence - Abby Strukel - 10-28-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    I’m so excited to have the opportunity to share what God has laid on my heart.  We will take a look at what it means to be dependent on God or independent of God!


  2. SW 23-1 - Your True Enemy - Part 1 - What Satan Is Not 10-21-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    God tells us to resist the devil and to draw near to God. We must continually do both!   But in order to resist the devil we must first recognize his work. If we don’t recognize his work, we won’t resist him and we will pay a high price.   Satan is the enemy of your life – your true enemy. Let’s expose him and resist him!


  3. SL 137 - What Should We Do In Impossible Situations - 10-07-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    Have you ever noticed that life seems to be full of impossible situations? I’m sure you have. God intentionally allows this to happen to us. And He has a great purpose in doing so.   In 1 Samuel 8, Samuel appointed his sons as the next rulers over Israel. But his sons were ungodly. What should the people have done? What did the people do? And what were the results?   In Genesis 15-16, God promised Abraham and Sarah a son. But Sarah was not able to have a child. What should they have done? What did they do? And what were the results?   In Matthew 4, Jesus was hungry after 40 days of fasting and the devil came to Him tempting Him to turn the stones into bread. What could Jesus have done? What did He do? And what were the results?   What should we do in impossible situations?


  4. SL 136 - Returning to Your First Love - 09-30-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    According to Revelation 2:1-6, the Ephesian church – once a very deep and mature church – had left her first love! How does this happen and how can we prevent this? And if it has already happened in our lives, how can we return to our first love?


  5. 10 Things Every Jewish Boy Ought To Know - Vic Hildebrand - 09-23-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    We take a quick look at Daniel and how he had the confidence to go through the lion's den, the difficulties and trials of working with dictator kings, and people who hated him.  We also look at what we should do to prepare the next generation for the struggles they will have


  6. Trusting God's Sovereignty - Delphine Fanfon - 09-09-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    Do we need to shift the point of our concentration from the circumstances that are causing us so much pain, to God, Himself?


  7. L5 - Three Generations Working Together - 09-02-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    In 1 John 2:12-14, God speaks of three distinct generations in the church. This teaching looks at the responsibilities and needs of each of them. In a healthy church, all three generations will work together well, providing a clear path of generational succession


  8. Led By The Holy Spirit - Josh Ercoli - 08-16-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    Sometimes there is doubt and discouragement because of what we are going through. Sometimes we think we need to "dress up" so that God will notice us, when what we really need to do is to clothe ourselves with Jesus.  God wants to restore confidence in our hearts.  We need to be in relationship with Jesus.


  9. I Want To See The Kingdom Of God - Andy Collins - 08-19-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    The disciples asked Jesus, "What shall we do that we may do the works of God?"  And Jesus replied,  " believe."  Why am I following Jesus?  Is it for what's in it for me, or for what's in it for Him?  Is it really for love, or is it for what I get.  Are we on an assignment or are we on an agenda?


  10. SL 135 - Don't Give Up - Part 3 - 08-12-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    A thorough exposition of 1 Peter 4:12-19. “Do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed.”


  11. SL 134 - Don't Give Up - Part 2 - 08-05-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    A thorough exposition of 1 Peter 1:3-9. In His love, God gives us incredible encouragement about our eternal future along with the privilege of following Him through the midst of refining fires now. It’s only the faith that does not run from the fire that will receive the glory.


  12. SL 133 - Don't Give Up - Part 1 - 07-29-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    A thorough exposition of 1 Peter 5:6-11. Peter was writing to encourage suffering saints. These words are very powerful and a great encouragement. A successful faith in time of trial does not succeed in removing the trial necessarily, but in bringing the believer through the trial, perfected and refined by it. This teaching is a must listen for those going through suffering!


  13. SL 132 - The ONE Question We Must Continually Ask - 07-22-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    God’s purpose in everything in your life is that you will know Him. Therefore, in everything, we should always ask this question: “Through this, how can I know God more deeply?” This is the ONE question.


  14. God Is So Much More - Andy Collins - 07-08-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    God is so much more, so much greater!  Sit at the feet of Jesus and say, "God, what did You create me for?"


  15. SL 131 - Solving The Mystery Of Unanswered Prayer - 06-24-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    This teaching continues to solve the mystery of unanswered prayer. This mystery can be solved by studying John 14 – 17 and the book of 1 John. Those who walk in union with Christ will have all their prayers answered.


  16. D 6 - The Basics of Water Baptism - 06-17-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    A brief teaching on the New Testament nature, meaning and method of water baptism.


  17. SL 130 - When God Does Answer All Your Prayers - 06-10-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    Jesus gave us some incredible promises in John 14:13-14, 15:7, 15:16 and 16:24 that God will answer all our prayers. But how should we understand these promises? So much teaching on prayer revolves around how to pray so that our prayers are effective, and we end up with a list of techniques on how to pray so we can get things from God. Was that Jesus’ intention?  (NOTE: At 231/2 minutes into this teaching, we have placed 3 seconds of silence to note the absence of about 6 minutes that are missing from the recording.)


  18. SL 129 - Why God Doesn't Answer Your Prayers - 06-03-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    There are many promises in the Bible that God will answer your prayers. However, there are quite likely times in your life experience when it didn’t seem like it! Why didn’t He answer? Here are four Biblical reasons.


  19. The Kingdom; Aliens and Ambassadors - Eric Richardson - 05-20-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    "Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires which wage war against your soul.  We are therefore God's ambassadors as though God were making His appeal through us."  1Pet 2:11, 2Cor 5:20

    What should happen when the church meets? What are the practical implications of this? How can we, as a church today, meet the same way that the New Testament church did? Revolutionary stuff!


  22. CL 73 - What Is the Church and How Does the Church Meet? Part 1 04-08-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    The first in a two-part study on what a "church" is, what "church life" is, and how the church meets. Our source for understanding church life is not the latest trends but the eternal Word of God! In particular, Acts 2:42-47 and Ephesians 4:15-16 give clear and powerful direction. Revolutionary stuff!


  23. SL128 - The Cross and the Resurrection - for Jesus and for You - 2018-04-01 ( Stream | Download )
    A verse-by-verse study of Psalm 22. Even though it looks like God has abandoned you, He has not. He is with you and will carry you through to the end. Don't give up!


  24. To Be Known - Eric Richardson - 03/11/2018 ( Stream | Download )
    Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God's people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.


  25. Gaining Strength Through Prayer - Patty Katzer - 03-04-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    How do we connect with God to get the strength we need?  We awaken our hunger for God through prayer.  When our hunger for God increases, we will be stronger in prayer.


  26. SL127 -The Prayer Of A Righteous Person Is Powerful And Effective 2-25-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    Powerful and effective prayer is not a ritual and it is more than positive desire. Jesus continually went to His Father - all the time pulling back and praying. This was not just because He enjoyed prayer - it was because He needed to pray. How much more do we! The measure of what's happening spiritually in our lives now is closely connected to the depth of prayer in our lives. If we will be a praying people, we will see our cities and nations impacted!


  27. SL126 What To Do in Times of Suffering, Pressure and Opportunity 2-18-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    How did Jesus respond to suffering, pressure and opportunity? His response was always the same. Always! We should respond the same way.


  28. What is the Definition of Faith - Abbie Strukel - 02-04-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    The Bible is filled with stories of the faithfulness of God.  The stories of Moses, Joshua, Gideon, David, Naaman, and Elijah are just a few of those stories.  God is always faithful!


  29. Wrestling With God - Angelo Morales - 01-28-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    What is the one thing that brings us back to Christ?  Many times it is an experience that we would not choose to have because of the pain and difficulties that come with the experience.


  30. Worry - Eric Richardson - 01-21-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    Worry, what is it good for?  Absolutely nothin'!   A worry free strategy is to:   1. Read the psalms   2. Go to Jesus   3. Pray   4. Go to prayer group meetings 


  31. L4 - Our Deep Connection with the Generations - 01-14-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    Jesus did not see His own life and ministry in a vacuum. He understood where His own ministry fit within the context of the previous leaders God had sent, and He recognized and honored those who had gone before Him. Jesus respected the past, honored the past and built on the past. And then, in everything He did, He prepared for the future. Next generation: honor the past. Honor your spiritual mothers and fathers. Build on what they have done. Don't disregard it. If you honor the past, you unlock the future!


  32. CL 72 - The Healthy Church Lifestyle - 01-07-2018 ( Stream | Download )
    A healthy church is one in which every member is functioning properly. In such a church, what are the roles of the staff? And in what ways should every member function? And, practically, what can this look like in everyone's daily life?


  33. SL 125 - Faith for Opportunity - 12-31-2017 ( Stream | Download )
    Real faith trusts God in the midst of the contradictions of this life. And real faith not only endures the contradictions - it thrives in the midst of the struggles and pursues the opportunities of God! Together, let's honestly reflect on the pain and struggles of the past. But we won't be overwhelmed by them. Together we will push into the opportunities that God has prepared for us in the future!


  34. Can You Recognize Jesus? - Eric Richardson - 12-24-2017 ( Stream | Download )
    In this time of year when the hustle and bustle of the season can be overwhelming and downright distracting how are you focusing on the true meaning of Christmas?  Do you have Jesus at the center?  Can you even recognize Jesus for who He truly is and what He is offering?  He won't be physically coming down to a manger on the other side of the world this December 25th, so how are people going to recognize Him?  (Please note that there is poor quality audio with the children's video.)


  35. SL 124 - Faith for Contradictions - 12-17-2017 ( Stream | Download )
    God loves us with an everlasting love and He has promised to care for us. He is infinitely powerful so He's certainly able to do that. And yet we suffer in this life. This is such a contradiction! How do we understand it? We need real faith.


  36. L3 - How God Views the Generations - 12-03-2017 ( Stream | Download )
    We are so different from God. God is self-existent - we're totally dependent. God is infinite - we're small and weak. God is eternal - we're here for a moment. And His perspective about the generations is different from ours. God has been working with man from the beginning and everything now is connected to everything that has gone before us. Moreover, everything now is preparation for what is coming after us. God's work is not just about you here in this moment. It's about those who have gone before you - your spiritual mothers and fathers, back for generations - who prayed and labored and wept. And everything we do now is not just for us and our generation. Everything now is preparation for the generations to come. This is how we need to think!


  37. CL 71 - Speaking From The Heart - 11-19-2017 ( Stream | Download )
    Around the world there is so much pain between the generations; there is disappointment, hurt, and brokenness.  But today we heard such wonderful affirmation.  There was the recognition of disappointment and hurt, but also a deep recognitioin of the good and a sincere gratitude for the good.  In spite of the struggles, there was still a deep thankfulness from one generation to the other.  That's so healthy!


  38. CL 70 - The Living Church - 11-12-2017 ( Stream | Download )
    We are invited together into the eternal experience of God's presence, His fellowship, His self-giving love. We're invited to look at Him, to know Him. And this happens together. Together, as His people, we experience His fullness. And out of His life in us, we express His love. This is the meaning of our relationships together in the church. This is the source and the nature of our unity together. It's Him - His life, His presence, His love.


  39. CL 69 - What Is A Multicultural Church? - 11-05-2017 ( Stream | Download )
    What's a "multicultural church" and is it a Biblical idea? In reality, the churches in the New Testament were all multicultural. Moreover, God's vision for His redeemed people has always been that they would be one, united in Him, serving and preferring one another. This should be the vision of every church!


  40. The Multi Cultural Church - Alex Anderson - 10-15-2017 ( Stream | Download )
    We need to start with the end in mind.  Rev 7:9 tells us that John, "saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before The Lamb."  Heaven is a place where every culture, every language, and every people group, will be represented.  His church is to be a replica of what Heaven will be like.  Yes, we still have our preferences but our preferences should never become prejudices.  If my preference turns into prejudice, then something is very wrong.  Our fears and prejudices will prevent us from doing what God wants us to do.


  41. CL 68 - Some Practical Paths For God's Church - 10-08-2017 ( Stream | Download )
    Through the centrality of Jesus Christ, everyone grows in God and we become a people of His presence.  One life, one truth, one family, one vision.  "Let all things be done for building up".


  42. CL 67 - God's Vision For His Church - 10-01-2017 ( Stream | Download )
    God's vision is for His church to be a healthy church through the indwelling life and presence of Christ in every member.  Through the indwelling life of Christ, every member grows, builds others, reaches out, and serves others.  


  43. SL 123 - Where are The Nine? - 11-26-2017 ( Stream | Download )
    "Ingratitude is worse than revenge.  Revenge is doing bad for bad.  Ingratitude is doing bad for good."  If you want to destroy any relationship, then focus on what's wrong.  Correct, criticize, point out the flaws.  If you want to build any relationship, then focus on what's right.  Affirm, encourage, support, be grateful, share thankfulness.
