    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.

    Defending the Faith
    In today's message, Pastor Kevin will be teaching from the Epistle of Jude. We will see that God calls on us to defend the faith against those who deny Christian morality.  Our doctrine and our practice are fused together; both must be guarded from threats outside and inside the church.  We will also see our need to recognize that false teachers fuel division within the church and how we are to build up ourselves in the faith as we also strengthen others to stand firm in the Gospel together.
  • 2020-03-22A Christ-Centered Hope

    A Christ-Centered Hope
    Today Pastor Kevin is returning to "The Gospel Project".  As we examine a few of the New Testament epistles before reaching the Book of Revelation, we will learn how we are to live today in light of our future.  First up in this session from 1 Thessalonians, we will see the importance of living with Christian hope--a hope that looks forward to the resurrection, Christ's return, and the final judgement.  When Jesus returns, He will raise His people from the dead and judge the wicked.  This future gives us hope to endure whatever comes our way today and also the grounds to encourage one another for faithful living.

    Jesus Conquers our Fears
    Series: (All)
    Today Pastor Kevin is taking a break from our Gospel Project series to speak a special message.  The title of his message is "Jesus Conquers our Fears" He will be teaching from Psalm 46.  With so much uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus around the world, people are afraid. Now is the time for Christians to be strong and courageous, knowing that Almighty God is with us.  As His Word instructs, we are to cast our cares upon Him, because He cares for us (1 Peter 5:7).
  • 2020-03-01Paul Magnifies Christ in Prison

    Paul Magnifies Christ in Prison
    In today's message we explore the letter Paul wrote to the church at Colossae when he learned through Epaphras that heretical teachings were running through the church.  We will see Paul's letter pointed the church to the person and work of Jesus Christ.  The cross of Christ is not merely a theory for theologians to ponder; it's a real-life, real-time reality that heals, restores, and reconciles.  As we read Paul's words in this message, we will aim in three directions-upward, downward, and outward.  For through the cross, Christ reconciled us to the Father, reconciles all things in Himself, and reconciles us to one another.

    Paul Expresses Joy in Prison
    As we explore Philippians, remember that Paul wrote these joyful words form prison. We will see the reason Paul could be joyful was because he could look past his circumstances-past any pain and hardship he was experiencing in that moment-and know the Gospel was advancing. Hearing that Jesus Christ was being glorified and knowing other believers were standing firm in their faith filled the apostle with joy. Paul found deep joy in Christ shining in and through his life. We will also see that knowing Christ would shine through his death gave him joy as well.

    The Plot Against Paul
    Today Pastor Kevin is returning to "The Gospel Project".  In today's message, we will trace Paul's experience in Jerusalem, when he was judged for his resurrection hope, strengthened by Christ's presence in prison, and preserved through a surprising plot twist.  We will see that even in prison, God was faithful to provide for Paul and to lead His servant to be used where and how He desired.  We will be encouraged to imitate the apostle's boldness, courage, and conviction as we ask God to give us the same faith and fortitude to surrender our lives to the Christ who surrendered His life for us.  Like Paul, we will see that resurrection hope gives God's people confidence to share the Gospel no matter the consequences.
