Change in the Believer
November 19, 2019
: In the hope-filled teaching, Evangelist John Ojeda uses the acronym CHANGE to talk about letting go and letting God and how the Lord brings about change in the life of the believers. Using personal testimonies and Bible verses, we see how Christians can fully put their trust in the Lord to bring about transformation and victory over trials and tribulations.

Child of God or Child of the Devil - Audio

Christ Became Nothing So God Might Be All - Audio
March 13, 2018
What was the one thing that Jesus Christ was the most passionate about? What was the focus and center of His attention day by day? How did Christ, who is "the Life," live His life? His greatest passion was not a thing, but a Person - Father God. The life of the Son of God revolved completely around His Father in heaven. In this teaching we look carefully at the gospel of John and see that it was not His works, but the works of...

Christmas Message - The Purposes Of The Lord - Audio
May 4, 2017

The truth that in one person, two natures, fully God and fully man, could dwell together perfectly is a great mystery. Pastor Charlie gives verse by verse insights into this famous Christmas story. We look at the call of God on Mary as a young teenager girl. We see that God always initiates. He begins every...

Clothe Yourselves With Humility - Audio
May 4, 2017
This is a careful study of 1 Peter 5:5-11. We start first with a summary of 1 Peter. There are two key "S" words in this powerful book - Submission and Suffering. If we submit to God and others, we will suffer. Peter focuses on the "sufferings of Christ," yet, he does remain there. He explains the "glory that will be revealed." Our temporary sufferings are nothing compared to the "eternal glory." In...
