• Full Vision, Part 1

    Wednesday night series by Pastor Mark Kinman focusing on how we need to keep our eyes open and our ears unobstructed to realize that we can call upon and reap from the harvest of God, if only we sow into his fields with our talents, our hearts, and our finances. This isn’t a prosperity message traditionally spoken at mega churches, but more along the idea that a content, fulfilled life with sufficient provision is available by acting within our Christian faith.

  • Trial by Liar, Part 1

    Pastor Mark’s Series about how bad things can happen to good people, and yet we allow ourselves to be convinced that they cannot be overcome. This sermon is a reminder that we are in a constant battle in this world, but we are given the power through Christ and as God’s children to overcome.

    Even the best of us can collapse into despair, whether we feel its through intimidation, convincing ourselves that evil doesn’t exist, or that God can’t help us, we can lapse in our good faith and fall into despair. However, as shown many times throughout the bible, we have been given an overwhelming hand to overcome, if only we call upon our resources and show up for the fight and trust that no matter what we are going through, that God can be there to win the day for us.

  • The Lamb, The Veil, The Glory

    Pastor Mark’s 2017 Easter Sermon tying together the old testament and the new to explain how Jesus acted as the veil, who when pierced, allowed the glory of God to fully be revealed to man, and how the old testament had analogous stories leading up to it that foreshadowed the one great event.

    Among other stories, this recollects Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice Isaac and the full symbolic meaning behind it, the use of incense and the altar surrounded by the veil, and the symbolic lamb, who is innocent and follows the good shepherd around, making it the perfect sacrifice, as it did nothing wrong.

    Feeding off of our other series, this ties together the prophecies of the Old Testament and how it foreshadowed the new and provided depth and meaning as to what exactly happened on “Good” Friday, and Resurrection Sunday.

  • Seed of Increase, Part 2

    Series by Pastor Mark Kinman that is builds upon “Measure” and “Means”. This series further discusses the methodology through which we can aim to achieve measurable results in our spiritual and faith lives and can be the crop that yields 100 fold. This measurable yield is not man-made and cannot be done on man’s timescale, but only happens when we allow Jesus to to sow into our fertile soil and work through us. This does not mean solely financial prosperity (although God can certainly bless us with finances), but richness in our lives through serving others. We can achieve this through our Spirit walk, defined by the bible, that enabled Jesus and the disciples to do the great works that are discussed in the bible. This series goes into detail about how to improve that Spirit walk.

  • Pastor Gene: Where Are You Lord

    Pastor Gene’s message on how our lives are set-up with a plan, and how upon being called we must be obedient. In particular, this focuses on the story of Saul (Paul) in the bible, and how Saul unbeknownst to him was obtaining the skills that he would use to become one of the most well renown disciples. Saul thought he was doing God’s will persecuting the Christians, and when called upon directly by God, became one who preached the gospel all around the Mediterranean. In a similar way, we must be cognizant that God can forgive us regardless of our past, and can more importantly, use our past in order for us to serve the Kingdom. If only we hear God’s word and understand that as Christians, “We know the Lord”.

  • Measure, Part 4

    Series by Pastor Mark on how in life we always are holding ourselves up to certain standards or bars, but in the end of the day, these measurements are immaterial to what is truly important. Measurements are used in the bible when talking about reaping and sowing, and God’s favor enabling growth beyond measure. Pastor Mark focuses on the parable of the sower and how in most cases, fruit doesn’t produce, but when it does, it produces in abundance. Therefore instead of measuring in linearity, we should be able to simply measure ourselves as to whether we are producing the fruit that comes only from God, and are enriched in spirit, touching the lives of those around us.

  • Divide and Conquer, Part 4

    New series by Pastor Mark Kinman focusing in on Matthew 24. This passage focuses on how Jesus, who is our “master” is returning not in order to unite, but in order to divide. It is our decision on which side of the divide we want to be on…that which lives secularly and is corrupted or that which is following Jesus and lives up to the name “little Christ”. Jesus also explains that the bumbling servant who has not heard of his return will not be punished greatly because of their lack of knowledge, but those who have knowledge of Christianity are held to a much higher standard. This is a series not on pushing a divide between people, but pushing a divide between our secular self and our spiritual self and making sure we always behave as Christians, constantly awaiting our master’s return.

  • Responsible Hope, Part 3

    Series by Pastor Mark on how hope is a gift from God, and that our belief in our Lord and Savior gives us hope as Christians. We have this hope regardless of our circumstances, but we can choose whether or not at any given minute to not be responsible to our hope and to share our gifts with the world, as we know that through God we have hope, and when we allow the world to beat us down for any reason, whether it be big or small, we are not living in God’s hope. Not that we should beat ourselves up over it, but just to remember that God desires for his children to be prosperous in everything. Just like Abraham became the father of all nations despite his age, all things are possible through hope, which is a byproduct of our faith.

  • Magnify, Part 11 (Finale)

    Pastor Mark speaks about how we tend to magnify things in our lives that lead us to suffering, fear, and worrying, while God in contrast can magnify the tiniest bit of good and strength in us, and do amazing things, such as take a basket of bread and feed 5000. As always, it comes down to simply letting ourselves get out of the way and allowing God to have control of our lives.

    Sermon on 11-20-16

  • Guest Speaker Pastor Charlotte: Listening to the Holy Spirit

    Pastor Charlotte, in conjunction with our series on “The Real Holy Spirit” talks about how the Holy Spirit gives us what we need to live a “good” life, meaning both happy life and a prosperous life.

  • Guest Speaker John McVay: Lean on the Lord

    Pastor John McVay preaches about the story or King Saul and King David, and talks about how we need to trust and lean on the Lord to get us through times versus trusting solely on our own skills and volition. We find our security in our bank account, in our house, or jobs, or the people we surround ourselves with, when as we know from the Book of Job, that God can watch us be stripped of everything, then replenish it many times over. We must instead trust on the Lord and find our security in him.

Communion reminds us that God loved us so much that he temporarily became one of us in order to show us the way.

  • Pastor Charlotte: Biblical Economics

    Pastor Charlotte gives the word on 1-15-17 about how our economics are often times not in line with God’s economics, in that God can multiply our own efforts when we are utilizing our resources wisely and freely, and can leave us struggling financially when relying on our own means and methods. In the end, it comes back to remembering that God is the source of our existence, and thus also of our sustenance, and that if we give freely and listen to the Holy Spirit when called upon, that God will always find ways to ensure that we can at least survive, and in many cases thrive.

    Sermon on 12-4-16

  • Thanksliving Service, 2016

    Every year around Thanksgiving, Pastor Mark talks about how we should live life thankful and gracious for what we have been given. But what does it mean to be thankful? Sometimes its easier to delve into this topic by looking at what it means to be unthankful and ungracious, such as the Pharisees. Going back to the Jewish meaning of the word, thanks means sacrificial praise offerings. Through this introspection, it is revealed that it is the inspiration of our actions that is beautiful (love) not superiority, and that if we are thankful to God, we will naturally live in a Godly manner.
