Keith Barker 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/11/2018

Preacher: Keith Barker, elder

Key Text: Exodus 15:11

Description: The cross: a Christian symbol evoking comfort and love for many, many people. But for some, it stands as a graphic warning sign declaring danger ahead.

Today on Scandia Bible Church podcast, Elder Keith Barker exhorts that the cross is SHOUTING that God hates our sin — so much so that He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus, to pay the price for it by hanging on the cross. His blood was a ransom for us — freeing us from an eternity separated from Him, our loving Heavenly Father.

 

Yes, the cross serves as a merciful word of comfort to Christians of God’s finished work but, to the unsaved, a stark shout of danger.

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 11/04/2018

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Revelation

Key Text: Revelation 2:18-29

Description: You either are acceptable to God or you are acceptable to the world…you can’t be both.

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shares with us that perhaps the biggest problem facing the church in America today is the pressure to compromise. SBC logo 204x204

For as the culture continues to decline morally, the pressure rises to succumb to the teachings of this world and become acceptable to those around us.

Why Did Jesus Need to Die? [Romans 3:23-24]

April 1, 2018


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/01/2018, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: Romans 3:23-24

Description:

Why did Jesus go to the cross?

There are many reasons that Jesus went to the cross. There are human reasons such as Judas Iscariot betraying Him and the Sanhedrin wanting to kill him. …But those reasons see the cross from the perspective of man of things that happened to Jesus – they don’t ultimately answer the question “why.” Because obviously, He had escaped the grasp of evil men before.

SBC logo 204x204Today on our Easter Sunday Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao rightfully sharpens our thinking on this question and shows us that the cross wasn’t just a thing that happened …it was necessary. Jesus didn’t just go to the cross, He needed to go to the cross…He needed to die. For that was His purpose in taking on flesh. So perhaps a better question we need to ask is “Why did Jesus need to die?”

What is the Gospel? [1 Corinthians 15]

April 16, 2017


Sermon Notes

Date: 04/16/2017, Easter Sunday

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Key Text: 1 Corinthians 15

SBC logo 204x204Description: The Gospel is the central message of the church and the central figure of the message is Jesus Christ. Yet many in the church can’t define what this message is. Sometimes they even define it in ways that are the opposite to what the Scriptures reveal…ways that don’t lead sinners to salvation but leave them condemned with no good news.

Skeletons in the Closet [Genesis 9:18-29]

Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 10/02/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Genesis

Key Text: Genesis 9:18-29

SBC logo 204x204Description: For 950 years, Noah walked with God. But in the last captured moment of his life, we read that he was drunk and naked and ridiculed by his own son… leaving many of us wondering: “What happened??? He was such a righteous man.”

Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we see that the Bible is careful to record sad events such as this in the lives of great men, to both warn us – lest we also fall – and for us to remember that God alone – not Noah – is the hero in this story (and in every story), and it is to Christ that we are to look.
