"The Church That God Uses"

In these passages today, Pastor Anthony teaches us about 3 actions that the church needs to take:

  1. GO and spread the Good News of the Lord, we need to seek those who are lost.

  2. COMPASSION drives us into action so we can meet both physical and spiritual needs, this is how we build God's kingdom.

  3. VISION is always asking ourselves "where are we going next?  What's our next ministry"?  There should be no time for laziness in the church.

We should let the size of our God determine the size of our goals.

  • 10/4/2020 Service & Sermon"God's Kintsugi" - Guest pastor James Benson, Fork Union Military Academy Chaplain, delivers a timely and powerful sermon today given the current broken climate of our country.  We see broken pieces all around us in relationships, communities, families and more.  With God's help anything can be fixed and be more beautiful than before.  God uses all of us in His story of redemption, not one of us is beyond His reach.

  • Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold — built on the idea that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art.

  • 9/27/2020 Service & Sermon - Matthew 9: 14-17 "A Discussion Worth Having" - As Pastor Anthony leads us through these bible verses, he teaches that we are to follow the lead of the Holy Spirit and walk with Jesus daily.  We need to put all distractions of the flesh aside and focus on the presence of God.  Listen along as we ask ourselves if we strive to walk with Jesus every day and seek His presence.

  • 9/20/2020 Service & Sermon - Matthew 9: 9-13 "Matthew's Story"​
    In this very important passage, Matthew provides his testimony by saying he was a lost cause and unsatisfied spiritually but Jesus knew He could do great things through Matthew.  When was the last time we introduced Jesus to our friends?  Jesus said "Follow Me" and Matthew did.  We need to follow in the same footsteps of Matthew and bring others to know Him.

- We must never give up in our mission.

  • 8/30/2020 - Service & Sermon - Matthew 8: 28-34 "Demons are Real" - The devil is still at work in this world and many are trapped under satan's control.  Pastor Anthony teaches us that we need to put on the firm armor of God to keep the devil away and stand firm against his schemes.  We must not be afraid of the cost to us if we can save even one soul!  We are God's prized possession.

  • 8/23/2020 - Service & Sermon Today's guest speaker, Gary Osteen, tells us about the story of Jonah and helps us to understand that a true prophet speaks for God.  When God calls, we must listen and obey. Do we say thank you to God or are we angry when things don't go our way?  God's goal is not for our comfort but for our character - generosity is always part of God's plan.  We need to share the gospel and walk the path that God asks us to walk.

  • 8/16/2020 - Service & Sermon - Matthew 8: 23-27 "Storms and Miracles" - Today's sermon encourages us to be true disciples of Jesus by not staying on the shore but by getting on the boat and following Him.  Many ask the question, "why follow Jesus if storms keep coming?"  The answer  is that a "real" follower of Jesus would rather be on a boat in a storm with Him than to experience a storm without Him.  We must call on the Lord to save us.

  • 8/10/2020 - Service & SermonMatthew 8: 18-22 "Attracted or Devoted?"​  These passages tell us that the crowd, bible scholars and a disciple were all attracted to Jesus, they desperately needed Him to fix their problems.
    -What do we do when Jesus meets our needs? 
    -Do we go back to life as normal or do we take that miracle and follow Him?  
    -Are you the type of Christian that only calls on Jesus when you need Him?
    Pastor Anthony helps us to understand the differences between being attracted to Jesus and being devoted to Jesus.
