SBC logo 204x204Description: “Virgin birth” – an expression people hear all around the world during Christmastime. But for people outside of Christianity – and sadly for far too many within it – they consider it a myth. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, elder Keith Barker delivers a Christmas message that seeks to clearly and simply state the absolute essential need for Christ being born of a virgin.

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? [Luke 11:37-44]

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Luke 11:37-44

SBC logo 204x204Description: Guess who’s coming to dinner?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker points out that many people — both today and in the days that Jesus walked the earth — believe that they are living lives in a manner pleasing to God. …But if Jesus were to come to your house for dinner, would He commend you or correct you? For the Pharisees of Jesus’ time, because they led such extremely disciplined lifestyles, their answer (at least for them) would be obvious. In today’s message we’re privy to such a dinner conversation, in which the Lord brings these very religious men face to face with the Truth.

Any Bush Will Do [Exodus 3:1-6]

Date: 10/22/2017

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Exodus 3:1-6

SBC logo 204x204Description: It’s difficult sometimes to say “no” to an obvious need. But we must remember that needs are never calls. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the book of Exodus to remind us that our strength comes from the Lord. We are to draw our strength only from Him… not ourselves. For when we depend upon our own humanity to energize and power us, we surely cascade to destruction. No, a need – in and of itself – is not a call; rather, a call is something that comes from God… to meet a need.

Key Text: Isaiah 6:1-4

Following Jesus [Psalm 23:1-3]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/20/2017

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Psalm 23:1-3

SBC logo 204x204Description:

“How’s a person supposed to make good decisions!?? I’m trying my best… but a little help from Jesus would be nice.”

Many Christians have little to no confidence that they have Jesus overseeing their daily activities – the result, they make decisions which are contrary to a life of peace. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker opens the Bible to the well-known Psalm 23, where we learn that, indeed, we are like sheep… often wanting our own way even when it’s the wrong way. But what we learn from God’s Word is that we can at any time ask for wisdom, and He promises to guide and provide… just like a good shepherd.

Holiness [Hebrews 12:4]

Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 04/09/2017

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Hebrews 12:4

SBC logo 204x204Description:

“Without holiness no one will see the Lord.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker shares with us that holiness is not something that you muster all of your energy to do, but rather something that is done to you. Holiness is an EFFECT – not a cause. Often, people believe that they need to “get better” in order to qualify for salvation. That in fact is, nothing is more impossible: the flesh cannot “Christianize” the flesh… because holiness is of the Lord.

Date: 03/26/2017

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Genesis 1:1

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

“In the beginning God….”

…The first four words of the Bible – four words whose depth and volume lay the very foundation for the truths that the rest of the Bible proclaim.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker takes us all the way to the beginning of the Bible – Genesis 1:1 – and explains that when an author pens a story his aim is to grab your attention to draw you into his book. God did this with the first four words of His book… four words that are so important that if the reader can’t digest them, the remainder of the Bible will likely remain a mystery.
