SERMON OF THE WEEK
The Port Huron REstatement - January 10, 2021
Nearly 60 years ago, a group of students, seeking to bring about justice in the world. composed a document that has quietly impacted influencers over the years. Today, we are seeing its full manifestation coming to pass as America takes a hard turn to the political left. It is The Port Huron Statement. Many of its goals were noble. But without Jesus Christ at the center, all justice movements will inevitably lead to great injustice. God wants a Port Huron REstatement. Not so much a document, but a year of prayer, worship, and proclamation, with Jesus at the center, leading to a new justice movement with a new generation of his disciples powering it.

Shine- November 29, 2020
As Bible-believing Christians are increasingly pushed to the margins of our culture, we are not to shrivel up and fall away, we are to shine! But it is very important to know what is absolutely essential for us to survive in a hostile world, let alone to shine. Pastor Joe shares that key.sode.
Deplorables - November 15, 2020

Reparented - November 8, 2020
Reparenting is a form of psychotherapy in which a therapist or an individual him or herself actively assumes the role of a new or surrogate parental figure in order to treat psychological weaknesses caused by defective parenting. No matter how bad or even how good our parents were, there are areas in all our lives that are unhealthy because our parents neglected to develop us there, or even parented us wrongly. But in this continuation of a verse by verse study of 1 Peter, we see that God is actively reparenting those who have turned to him. As a result, aimless lives turn into lives of love and purpose.
God is NOT a Socialist - November 1, 2020
Although well-meaning, many Christians have embraced unbiblical political views.

As Christians who live in a Democratic Republic, we have a responsibility and will be called to account regarding the promotion biblical or unbiblical values.
Rejected, Elected, Perfected - October 26, 2020
Through the centuries, God's people have had to deal with rejection. We have been relatively spared in America. But things may change. Are we ready?

And even in the midst of trials, we can experience the joy of being perfected!

The Book of Acts teaches us that gatherings in houses were central to church life. In this teaching Pastor Joe equips you to be a Pastor in your own house church. The goal is to make disciples, leading to the multiplication of disciples and more house churches, no matter what the circumstances are around us.
Getting Into Your Business - October 11, 2020
God wants to get into our business right now. Are you willing to let him? Too many churches and too many Christians are not dealing with sin, when the BIble explicitly does.

Revival: It Can Still Happen - August 2, 2020
If America ever needed Spirit baptized people who pray in tongues day and night, the time is now. We need REVIVAL! And revival starts with the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

It Is Written - June 28, 2020
Did you ever wonder why the Bible has SO many lists of names? Name after name! In some places it's chapter after chapter of lists of names! There's a reason for that. God did that to show us something. God knows our names. He cares about each and every one of us. And he is writing down EVERYTHING we do for him. What do you want to be written about you?
Light Privilege - June 21, 2020
There IS privilege in our society. Some genuinely have it easier than others. But privilege is not something to be ashamed of or guilty over... if it is used for others.

When we align with that created purpose, amazing wonderful things happen.
The Pentecostal Pave - May 31, 2020
In this day of heightened sensitivity to racial injustices, Pentecostals, of all people, should be those who are paving the way for racial harmony and unity. Pentecostalism is rooted in diversity, and its distinctive practice of speaking in tongues is a divine reminder of the power to break through every man-made and demonic barrier.
Blessed are the Peacemakers - May 16, 2020
In this day of rancor, debate, and accusation in politics, media, and even the church world, it seems to be a forgotten phrase that Jesus once spoke: "Blessed are the Peacemakers."
