"The Wise Men"
God touches normal people, life interruptions


Jesus was born in the town of Bethlehem in Judea. A star appeared to the Wise Men, guiding them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them as they traveled and stopped over the place where the child was. Upon entering, they fell down before Him and worshiped Him.

God touches normal people, life interruptions


God reached out to common people, the shepherds, and touched their lives. He brought about the workings that glorify His name and everything about that wonderful night changed their whole lives.

Share The Season (Pt 1)
Puzzle pieces,fit together, gifts, bigger picture, Ephesians 4:16

PASTOR Jeff barbour

Many of us think that interruptions get in the way of "Real Life." They remind us that we're not in control.Those of us that follow Jesus shouldn't see interruptions as obstacles to our plan but opportunities to embrace God's plan. Anytime God interrupts your routine it is only because He has a better one.


Putting It All Together
Puzzle pieces,fit together, gifts, bigger picture, Ephesians 4:16

PASTOR Jeff Barbour

We're talking about puzzles and putting it all together. The body of Christ is made up of many different members, each part has its place and does its work together in the flow of what the head is leading it to do. We're gifted so that we all fit and function as a group as part of what God has put together as His temple.

"Working the works of God"Work Towards the Eternal, Believe, Obedience, Praise

PASTOR Jeff Barbour

What is important for you as as individual, as a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, is to believe in Him, joining up with God in what He is doing. Sensing the awareness of God in our spirits, realizing that God has spoken to your heart and responding with obedience.

"GET Angry! ...and don't sin)"Get Angry, Ephesians 4:26-27, Sin, Emotion

PASTOR Jon Pearce

There are two types of anger, constructive anger and destructive anger. In your anger, do not sin. Anger should be a temporary emotion and not a lifestyle. Anger can give the devil traction to do his work through you. "Don't let the sun go down while you are still angry. And do not give the devil a foothold."

"THE JOURNEY" (PART 2)Word and Its Work, Chris Harper, 2 Timothy,


In the routine of daily living, the journey of it all, we are actually on a new discovery every morning. We are facing a new day that we've never lived before, standing at the threshold of life with the presence of the Living God upon us. Look at each day with a newness knowing that the Lord God is with you and watch to see what He wants to do so that your life can catch on to all the glorious things that He's doing.   

"The Journey" (Part 1)Word and Its Work, Chris Harper, 2 Timothy,

PASTOR Jeff Barbour

In Philippians 4:4-9 God's saying to His children, here's how you get through this journey in life. Here's how you dwell in My presence. Here's how this all fits together. Rejoice by choice, relax by command, rest in His peace, and renew your minds. Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right.  Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Set your mind on the things above and not on things of the earth.    

"Weathering the storm"Word and Its Work, Chris Harper, 2 Timothy,


As Christian believers, we are in one of three places at all times. We are either coming out of a storm and into the light of His goodness, getting ready to go into a storm, or kneeling right down in the middle of a storm. The storm is always there, Jesus said it would be. So if we can't choose our boat and we know the storm is coming, what we do get to choose is how we respond to God, the One who silences the roar of the sea and stills the storm to a murmur.

"The Word and Its Work"Word and Its Work, Chris Harper, 2 Timothy,

Guest Pastor Chris Harper

September 07, 2014
No where in scripture is there a more clear, more concise, more direct explanation of the work of the Word than in 2 Timothy 3:16-17. 
"All scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness , so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work."

Better Waters, Jon Pearce, 2 Kings

"Better waters"

PASTOR Jon Pearce

August 31, 2014
Sometimes we do things that aren't wise, that may be embarrassing, and we are concerned about the attitudes of other people rather than going to the Lord. When you're doing something for God, and you're obedient, he can't help but bless. God sometimes chooses the foolish things in the world to confound the wise.

As We Also, Jameson Barker, The Lord's Prayer Part 4

"AS WE ALSO"                       The Lord's Prayer (pt 4)

Pastor Jameson Barker

August 24, 2014
Forgiveness is a permanent and complete acquittal from the guilt and ultimate penalty of sin and it belongs to all who are in Christ. If we have truly experienced God's forgiveness, then we will have a readiness to forgive others. Link to the "Falling Plates" sermon illustration video.

Circumstances, John Stamper, Psalm 25

Live Beyond Your Circumstances

Guest Pastor John Stamper

August 17, 2014
Have you ever had something go completely opposite of the way you thought it would go? Psalm 25 was written by King David who lived a blessed but tragic life. He was well acquainted with God - but he was also well acquainted with trouble in spite of the things God did to demonstrate His love for David. We all deal with challenging circumstances and those circumstances will typically control us or catapult us. Learn how to be able to experience true freedom and live beyond your circumstances.

"This Day" The Lord's Prayer (Pt 3)

This Day, The Lord's Prayer

PASTOR Jameson Barker

August 10, 2014
Sometimes we just can't get past what we have experienced to see the glory that God has for our TODAY. God will give us THIS DAYS needs so that in the long run, we will be right where God wants us to be. We know what we have experienced in the past and we crave that again. But that's not what God has for us, He has something infinitely better!

Living With Assurance from God, Jeff Barbour



August 03, 2014
When you and I come into the kingdom of God, we recognize that the Lord God Almighty created the heavens and the earth. He is cable of doing anything. The difficulty comes when in our individual lives we are looking for God to intervene and help us, to do something when we're under attack or facing a problem. At that point we question, will He do it?

You, Me, and DemasYOU, ME, AND DEMAS

Guest pastor Chris Harper

July 27, 2014
As church-goers we often fall into three categories: 1. Those who submit to Jesus as Lord but struggle in acknowledging Him as Savior. 2. Those who acknowledge Him as Savior but do not submit to Him as Lord. 3. Those who both acknowledge Jesus as savior and submit to Him as Lord. In what category do you find yourself?

Who Am I... In Christ?

Pastor Jeff Barbour

July 20, 2014
Who Am I? In Christ, you are a new creation. So set your mind on the things above!


Pastor Jeff Barbour

July 13, 2014
"But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift... And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers," (Eph. 4:7,11). Are you in the Kingdom? Do you know your gifting? Are you deploying your gift?


Pastor Finace Smith

July 6, 2014
God may allow your tree to be hewn down, but He always leaves you a stump. God is still in control. He is God over everything you have, everything you have lost, everything you have left, and He gives to whomever He wills.

God and Country 2014:      "We Are Soldiers"

Guest Pastor Joel Carwile

June 29, 2014
The Bible is full of soldiers. A soldier of Christ is a follower when given marching orders. He is faithful, endures hardship and does not quit. A soldier is familiar with the sound of his commander's voice and uses his weapons with skill and strategy against the enemy. A soldier fights for what is right, for what is necessary, and does not retreat. A soldier is a finisher. What kind of soldier are you... a soldier of Christ?

Your Will

Pastor Jameson Barker

June 22, 2014
'Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." It's NOT my Kingdom... MY will be done! When we pray "Your will be done, we are essentially asking to get God's will done on earth. It's not telling God what we want and then selfishly enjoying it. It's asking God to use us to accomplish what He wants so that His name is glorified.

Males, Men, Husbands, dads

Pastor Jeff Barbour

June 15, 2014
Looking at the role of males, men, husbands, and dads as God the Father has intentionally made it, according to scripture.


Pastor Jameson Barker

June 8, 2014
When God sanctifies us, it means He makes us holy. When we hallow God, it means we treat Him as holy! He deserves to be trusted, feared, obeyed, and glorified.

Tell The truth

Guest Pastor Ric Cadle

June 1, 2014
Guest pastor Ric Cadle reminds us of Christ Jesus' large crowd message, and encourages us to tell the truth of the gospel to others.

A Psalm for the Living     Part 6:                                         "The Gracious Host Pt 2"

Pastor Adam McClendon

May 22, 2014
David ends this beautiful Psalm with a wonderful and confident declaration that after this life he will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. In doing so, he reminds us that the glories of this world cannot compare to the gates of glory.

A psalm for the living    part 5:                                      "The Gracious host Pt 1" 

Pastor Adam McClendon

May 18, 2014
Don’t allow the bandits of life to rob you from seeing the banquet that God has prepared right before you. Gazing at the banquet God as our Gracious Host has prepared should invoke within us a deep gratitude.

Mother's day, females, wives, mothers

Females, wives, and mothers: "god's design for completion"


May 11, 2014
Pastor Jeff takes us back to the scripture in Genesis 2. God tells us how it really is and He tells us how He has put everything together, how He meant for life to work before sin, before there was a fall, and wickedness in mankind.


Pastor Jeff Barbour

May 4, 2014
What is The Kingdom Approach? In our daily lives, how do we interact with God and how does He interacts with us. How do we get in on what's going on and see all the workings that God has for us?

Redeeming the time

Pastor Steve Marcum

April 27, 2014
Sometimes we don't think about how we are spending our time. Because we value time so much we are obsessed with trying to manage it and save it. We are called to be good stewards of everything God's given us and that includes time. How are you redeeming your time?

easter 2014:                            "the three trees"

Pastor Adam McClendon

April 20, 2014
While life may or may not have worked out the way that you thought it would, that fractured, twisted, overgrown path you have been walking has brought you to this Easter moment. A moment where you are confronted with the reality that Jesus came, lived, died on the Mercy Tree as your substitute so that you might find redemption.
