The Word Became Flesh - Video
December 19, 2018
This is a verse by verse video teaching of John 1:1-14. John gave us the true Christmas message in only four words - "The Word became flesh." Jesus is eternal because He was with the Father from the beginning. He is the Son of God and distinct from God because He was "with God." And He is God because John wrote, "The Word was God." We have proof of His deity because He was in the beginning with God (v2), all...
The Writing on the Wall – Pastor Rick Avila
August 23, 2021
On the very night that King Belshazzar saw the writing on the wall his kingdom was given over to the Medes and Persians. We, as a country seem to have forgotten God and have mocked Him by enacting laws that are leading us in the wrong direction. Our government has enacted laws that have had a devastating affect on our nation. It has outlawed the Ten Commandments in our public schools; it has approved abortion all across the nation; it has...
They Shall Be Taught By God - Audio
October 1, 2018
It is one thing to be taught by a historian or scholar. What about if you could be taught by someone who knows everything. Using Isaiah 54:13, Pastor Charlie teaches that all Christians can be personally taught (or discipled) by the Lord Himself. Jesus quotes from this verse in Isaiah in John 6:45 to show that Father God will teach us about His Son, because only He knows the Son. We end with Matthew 11:25-30. Father God hides spiritual...

Transformed by the Spirit - Audio
November 7, 2017
In this important teaching, we look at how change and transformation takes place in the believer's life. Change, true change, only comes by the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. The prophet Samuel spoke over King Saul and told him that when the Spirit of the Lord came upon him in power, he would prophesy and be changed into a different person. He would be a totally different man when the Holy Spirit came up him. In Ezekiel 36, we...
Treasure In Earthen Vessels - Audio
May 6, 2017
Spoken at the Northwest Convention in Prineville, Oregon on the theme of 2 Corinthians 4:7, Pastor Charlie covers 2 Corinthians 4:1-9 verse by verse. We have such a powerful ministry in the gospel that it can transform lives. It is a ministry of the new covenant, based on the life, not death, righteousness, not condemnation, the Spirit, not law, an unveiled face, not one veiled. It is a ministry that we have received by the mercy of God. With...
Trust - Though He Slay Me - Audio
May 8, 2017
Using humorous personal stories of trust based on Proverbs 3:5-6 and Psalm 118:8-9, Pastor Charlie again exhorts believers to not rely on own understanding, wisdom and expertise. Your trust must be in God and God alone. He alone know more about your body than the best doctor; He alone knows more about your car tan the best mechanic; He alone knows more about your computer than the best repairman; He alone knows more about your marriage and...
Trust In The Lord - Audio
May 8, 2017
One of the greatest verses in the Bible on trusting the Lord is Proverbs 3:5 - "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding." In this verse-by-verse teaching of Proverbs 3:5-7, Pastor Charlie deals with the very practical issues of totally surrendering yourself to God. The Hebrew word for "trust" is a picture word that meant "to lie prostrate before someone as in a defeated soldier...

We also look at Ephesians 5:25-27 and see that Jesus died for the church to make it holy. He uses...
