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...
Come to Me - Audio

From John 5:39-40 he shows that coming to the Living Word is different than coming to the written Word. In John 7:37-39, he teaches that "thirst" is not a bad thing, but it's how you seek to satisfy that thirst that makes all the difference. Finally, in John 6:35-37, he magnifies Jesus as the bread of...

In this encouraging and strong teaching on "trusting in the Lord," Pastor Charlie starts again with one of his favorite verses in the Bible - Proverbs 3:5-6. "Trust in the Lord" - the Hebrew word for "trust" is a picture word that means to lie face down before a conquering general in total and complete surrender.

In this unprecedented time of local, national, and world shut-downs due to the corona virus spread, our call as Christians (as always) is to trust in the Lord with all our heart.

Courage Not Compromise - Audio
May 4, 2017
Jesus has called us out of the world and into His kingdom and presence. We are not to be like the world nor mimic the lifestyle of ungodly people. Jesus said in Matthew 6:8, "Do not be like them." Don't be like the Pharisees, scribes, hypocrites, and pagans; be like your Father who is in heaven. Don't be like this culture. Reject it. Yet, so many Christians are compromising and giving in to the prevailing moral values of...
