Psalm 51:3

Psalms 51

Vintage message from September 29, 2002. [This] is an appeal that I believe that each of us in our lives need to make to God. “Have mercy on me according to Your unfailing love.” You know what?

In fact, from the day that He conceived the idea to create man, I believe that He created man because of a desire…

Psalms 49-50

Vintage message from September 22, 2002. You know what? It [life] is not about what you can accumulate here. It is about coming to know the God Who created you and walking in right relationship with Him.

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired September 15, 2002. One of the things in life that we struggle with: we want everything right now. We live in a fast food society. We want fame and glory yesterday. We want everyone to recognize us for who we are supposed to be, not what we are today. We want people to be able to look at us and be our best friend today. We want to encounter life…

Psalms 47-48

Vintage message from September 15, 2002. When was the last time you actually worshipped God? You know, we sing to God all the time. We’ll put a tape in the tape player and we’ll sing along with it, and we’ll gather at church on Sunday morning, and we might even raise a hand now and again. And, in the church today, we have fallen to a place of calling that worship, but you know what? Worship doesn’t happen because you’re…

And the fact is,…

John 1:20

John 1:15-28

Vintage message from our 2002-2003 radio program called “Perspective” aired September 1, 2002. I see the abundant life in Jesus Christ as being something other than having material wealth.

An abundant life is one that is walked each and every day, every moment of that day, in the excitement and fervor in the Person and life of Jesus Christ. That is abundance. Taking the…
Psalm 43:5

Psalms 43-44

Vintage message from September 1, 2002. Is God your stronghold? Is God the One that you turn to in times of trouble? Is God the One you that you dwell with and in, even in the good times?
