Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/02/2014

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Exodus 30:17-21

Description: The word ‘Ebola’ is now on every newscast. If you are in an area where the disease is active, the idea of personal hygiene to protect your health, and perhaps even your life, is very real. Centuries ago God spoke of the need for washing and used it as an illustration of the cleansing needed for sin.

Back to the Basics [1 John 2:12-14]

September 29, 2013

Sermon Notes

Date: 09/29/2013

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: 1 John

Key Text: 1 John 2:12-14

Description: John pauses in the giving of tests of salvation to draw the reader’s attention back to the objective foundation and ground of their justification.  He addresses the church in all stages of maturity, from the new believer to the spiritually mature.  This passage serves as a parenthetical comment, as it were, so that our self-reflection doesn’t leave us looking inside of us for answers but outside of ourselves to Christ.

Confessions of the Contrite [1 John 1:8-9]

August 11, 2013

Sermon Notes

Date: 08/11/2013

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: 1 John

Key Text: 1 John 1:8-9

Description: In this morning’s passage, John responds to the second of three errors found in this section.  All of these errors have to do with a false view of sin.  The first error essentially taught that sin doesn’t matter, whereas the second error teaches that sin doesn’t exist.  The seriousness of these errors is that it undermines the atonement and robs the Gospel of it’s Good News.

Sermon Notes

Date: 06/23/2013

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Jonah

Key Text: Jonah 4:5-11

Description:  Our passage this morning shows us two things about God. The first is that God never gives up on His people, He has a tenacious grip on us… and the second is that God’s amazing plan of redemption is larger than most of us think. God will redeem all of His creation and reverse the curse of sin.

Sermon Notes

Date: 06/16/2013

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Jonah

Key Text: Jonah 4:1-4

Description:  The book of Jonah is a highly unusual book.  There is no other book like it within both the minor and major prophets.  It’s unusual in that the prophetic message is not what’s important but rather the narrative that surrounds it.

Forgiveness [Genesis 33:1-20]

May 5, 2013

Sermon Notes

Date: 05/05/2013

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Genesis 33

Description: Millions of people carry around a pain that is hidden inside. It’s the pain of a guilty conscience. Some trespass, recent or long ago, just won’t go away and refuses to heal. Forgiveness is one of the most wonderful aspects of Christianity. This lesson from the Book of Genesis is a clear picture of the healing of a terrible divide between two brothers.

“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!
