Smyrna: The Faithful Church
Series: The End
A church like Smyrna, poor in economic terms, but rich in spiritual terms, is being praised by Jesus.  This is the kind of church that can survive the Tribulation.  Their treasure and their hearts were in Heaven.  Can we say the same thing?

    Ephesus: The Loveless Church
    Series: The End
    In today's message, Pastor Kevin examines the first letter to the seven churches in Asia Minor, beginning with the church at Ephesus. Many of the churches had lost their way in one form or another, and they needed to turn back to Christ.  We will see part of that repentance was turning their focus from their sins back to Jesus and locking their eyes on Him no matter what situation they were in.

    Communion at Home
    Due to the excessive heat (it's supposed to be 100 degrees at 10 AM today in San Marcos), the elders decided to stream today's communion service.  Pastor Kevin will have a pre-recorded communion message that will be available Sunday morning.  Please prepare yourself with some juice & crackers to take the Lord's Supper along with Pastor Kevin.  The message he had planned for today on Revelation 2:1-7 will be given the following Sunday (09/13) as we continue our series called - The End: A Study of Revelation.

    A Christ Centered Vision

    While We Wait, Pt 2
    Today Pastor Kevin completes part two of this session in 2 Peter.  We see that God works on His own timetable, not ours, and that what seems like slowness to us is actually God's perfect timing.  Because of this, the church is to be holy and godly as we anticipate the return of Christ, knowing that it will happen suddenly at just the right time, whether that is today, tomorrow, or one day a long time from now.

    While We Wait, Pt 1
    Today Pastor Kevin is returning to "The Gospel Project".  Like Jude, 2 Peter was written to encourage believers who were living with false teachers in their midst.  These false teachers were leading some of the church away from the gospel and were confusing others, so Peter wrote to the church to encourage them to live faithfully and patiently.  In this session, we will see that part of combating false teachings is remembering the commands of the prophets and apostles-God's words to His people.

    Walk Humbly
    Today Pastor Kevin teaches the fourth installment of his series entitled, "#MoreThanAHashtag".  As a sign of genuine religion ( Mic 6:8 ) humility is necessary to enter God's kingdom.  When we come to Christ as sinners, we must come in humility. We acknowledge that we are paupers and beggars who come with nothing to offer Him but our sin and our need for salvation.  We recognize our lack of merit and our complete inability to save ourselves.  Then when He offers the grace and mercy of God, we accept it in humble gratitude and commit our lives to Him and to others.  The clearest picture of humility in the Bible, indeed, in history, is Jesus Christ.  He modeled godly humility for us.

    Act Justly
    Today Pastor Kevin teaches the third installment of his series entitled, "#MoreThanAHashtag".  "Justice" is a felt need in our world today, and a controversial topic.  But what is justice, exactly, and who gets to define it?  In today's message Pastor Kevin we'll explore the biblical theme of Justice and discover how it's deeply rooted in the storyline of the Bible that leads to Jesus.

    Love Mercy
    Today Pastor Kevin returns to the series he started two weeks ago entitled, "#MoreThanAHashtag".  In today's message we learn about the biblical concept of Mercy and how we should extend that mercy to others.  God's mercy is reflected in the cross of Christ, a direct reflection of His love for us.  Mercy is a characteristic of the One True God.

    Do Something!
    Our world is not as it should be. There is pain, evil, and injustice all around us. In the age of social media, it is easier than ever to stay informed about all sorts of injustices, but is sending a tweet, posting a selfie, or sharing a video about an inspiring cause really all it takes to make a difference in the world?  Or is it possible that justice is about something much more than a hashtag?  In this 4-week series, Pastor Kevin Ibanez challenges us to not just post about the injustices around them, but to actually do something about them by loving mercy, acting justly, and walking humbly.  Sermon PowerPoint Slides are available here.
