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.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 02/12/2017

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 18:16-33

SBC logo 204x204Description: 

He was described as the “Friend of God.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Genesis and shows us that this “friend” was Abraham. And one of the ways this friendship was manifest was when God took him into intimate council before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah – an act in which we not only see God’s reassurance to Abraham of His justice, but we also see a glimpse into an intimacy that foreshadowed, if even in a small way, the intimacy that Christ purchased for us.

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 1

SBC logo 204x204Description: The doctrine of creation is not only under attack outside the church but from within as well.  Christians have attempted to fit “millions of years” into the Genesis account by doing hermeneutical gymnastics to Genesis Chapter 1.  The end result of these theories has been the undermining of not only the faith of countless Christians but the undermining of the Gospel itself!

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 08/09/2015

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Judges

Key Text: Judges 12:1-7 and Hebrews 11:32

Description:  After Jephthah’s defeat of the Ammonites and the wicked sacrifice of his own daughter, his troubles are not over.  He is rebuked by the Ephraimites and ends up fighting against them and over 40,000 Ephraimites die.  Israelite killing Israelite.

With all of the sinfulness and tragedy in the life of Jephthah, the book of Judges is not the only place we see mention of his name.  Jephthah surprisingly is listed in the “Hall of Faith” in Hebrews 11.  We explore how Jephthah might have “made the cut”.
