The Reality of Hell

Very often people will ask the question, “So, what happens after I die?” Everybody wants to know the answer to that question. What happens after I die?

The Reality of Heaven

“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.” (Colossians 3:1) The truth is, a lot of times, we’re just not too excited about heaven.

Praise be to God

Today’s sermon is focused on Psalm 33. ‘Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous.’ (Psalm 33:1) This admonition reminds us that we enter into worship and give an invocation of praise to God, whether it’s through prayer or song. Four things, I think, are not good to begin within any kind of worship, whether it’s…

If I Believe, Why Do I Still Doubt?

I want to talk today about a topic that is relevant for every single person here whether you’re a Christian or not. It is a topic that will affect us sometime in our life. We all wrestle with that to some degree. Let me read you a part of a letter written to the pastor…
