Preacher: Peter Montoro, guest pastor

Key Text: Romans 1:3-4

Description: …The “in-between time.”

We all know what it’s like waiting between two events – engagement and marriage, hiring and starting a job, and many others. Yet, what if there was another sort of in-between, an in-between that affected absolutely everything about how we live our lives in this broken world?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, as we move forward in the wake of the death of young Isaiah Simao – the son of our pastor, Monty Simao – we are blessed to welcome to our pulpit the associate pastor of Westside Baptist in nearby Bremerton, Washington, Peter Montoro.

SBC logo 204x204Today Pastor Peter reminds us that as believers, we live our lives in this world in-between our crucifixion with Christ and our coming resurrection. And as we wait, it’s easy to feel as though the struggles we face will last forever. We must remember though, that just as the cross of Christ only made sense to the disciples in the light of His resurrection, so too the crosses we face will only fully make sense to us in the light of our own resurrection.

Date: 02/19/2017

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Matthew 27

SBC logo 204x204Description: Have you ever reflected on who actually killed Jesus?

…Was it the angry crowd? Was it the Roman governor, Pilate? Was it the religious leaders? Or was it the work of Satan?

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Elder Keith Barker addresses the possible contributors to Jesus’ death by opening the 27th chapter of Matthew – a portion of scripture that every Christian should be familiar, for it is the centerpiece of our belief. Because you see, when you understand this chapter, you not only gain a grasp of what Jesus was willing to endure for the forgiveness of each and everyone of us… but you peer into the sacrificial heart of God.

“Today You Shall Be With Me in Paradise” [Luke 23:39-43]

April 24, 2011

Sermon Notes

Date: 04/24/2011, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Key Text: Luke 23:39-43

Description:  Have you ever wondered if a person who had lived wickedly his whole life and was now on death row could be saved if he received Jesus? Well you don’t need to wonder because the Bible not only answers that question but gives us an account of that very thing. The Penitent thief on the cross who was crucified next to Jesus, gives us one of the clearest examples of Justification by grace thru faith.  This man did no good works. He was demonstrably evil, he was a criminal. He knew he was dying and he knew he deserved it.  Find out how this evil man saw his sin, saw his Savior, and then was assured of salvation!
