Join us this Sabbath as Steven Williams shares how God has been leading through mission work in Guyana.

The ability to see clearly should not be taken for granted. Billions of people around the world need some type of corrective lenses in order to see where they are walking.
The same is true in our spiritual lives. “Without vision, the people cast off restraint,” is what the Bible tells us. (Proverbs 29:18) Having that clarity enables each of us to move forward in confidence, knowing God is leading.
Listen this week as Pastor Jon shares a challenge to implement our church’s vision as well as share how God’s direction has shaped his own life.
Who wouldn’t turn down a free gift? Whether it’s Christmas, a birthday, or some other special occasion, most of us would be happy to receive the blessings of a gift.
But the Bible describes someone who despised his gift: Easu. Thinking only of himself, he sold his gift for a bowl of soup.
Join us this week as we conclude our Fortified series by looking at how we can choose to live differently than Esau.
Video illustration used in sermon:
Someone who practices diligence will declare:
I will finish my projects.
I will do a job right.
I will follow instructions.
I will concentrate on my work.
I will not be lazy.
What does that look like in our spiritual lives?
Listen this week as we continue our Fortified sermon series and discover how Jesus is concerned about how we live while we wait for His return.
Blame it on a marketing scheme. Blame it on over harvesting. Blame it on genetically modified organisms. Blame it on whatever you want, but your breakfast cereal is most like fortified with vitamins and minerals not normally found in a box of Corn Flakes!
The most common answer one hears is because the population is not receiving enough nutrients through a balanced diet elsewhere, so manufacturers supplement the cereal grains with additional nutrients.
What if that were to happen to our faith? Do we need to add anything to our saving belief in Jesus? One of the disciples thought so . . . Peter. He says we are to:
add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. 2 Peter 1:5-7
