We were excited to be a guest at LampLight Theatre. Pastor Chad spoke an encouraging message from John 2 when Jesus turned water into wine. Mary, His mother, said something very interesting. She told the servants, "Whatever He tells you, do it." In this sermon, the question is do we have this type of obedience?

Most Christians think God wants them happy. The Bible teaches God wants us Holy. As Charles Spurgeon once said, "Holiness is the pathway to happiness for a Christian."
In Pt. 4 of the Attributes of God, Pastor Chad explains what holiness is and why the Lord expects us to live holy lives. We answer the question, "How can someone like myself become holy when I know the sin in my life the potential to sin in temptations I face?"
We answer this and more with 1 Peter 1:13-15 as our text. We hope you enjoy this talk on God's holiness as we explore how we can learn who God is and what He expects from His Word.

God teaches Jonah difficult lessons in chapter 4. Sadly, Jonah did not care the people he was preaching repentance too. He wanted to see Nineveh destroyed.
Chapter 4 is about God's compassion for the lost. In the conclusion to the JONAH series, Pastor Chad breaks down each verse to show how God challenged Jonah. He essentially asked Jonah if his comfort was more important than God's compassion? If the material was more important than the spiritual?

The Bible is very transparent about people's lives. It reveals the good, the bad and the ugly.
Few had more set backs than Jacob. His very name means trickster and deceiver. In week two of the Altar Series, we look over several chapters of Genesis and trace the mistakes and poor decisions Jacob made for his life and his children.
To make matters worse for Jacob, he tried to build altars and worship God when he was clearly outside of God's will.
God wanted his family in Bethel and Jacob purchased land in Shechem. Jacob and his family paid a great price for disobeying God's will.
Walk through these chapters of Genesis as Pastor Chad passionately warns families to not live outside of God's will because the stakes are high for your children and grandchildren.

In Genesis 12, Abraham is brought to Canaan and he builds an altar of thanksgiving because God has fulfilled His promise in sending him to a land that would be his new home.
What we discover in Genesis 12 is why there is power in calling on the Name of the Lord. How Abraham built his altar before all the Canaanites and how we too are to build altars of God's faithfulness before the people around us.
We hope you enjoy week one of The Altar.

What do you do when Satan makes war against you? Have you experienced his attacks, perhaps in your family, your job or even your health?
When the Amorite Kings formed an alliance against Gibeon in Joshua 10, Israel came to their defense and God promised a supernatural victory.
In this stand alone sermon, Pastor Chad walks us through Joshua to show us how God can still work powerfully in our lives today. For Joshua and the children of Israel, God caused the sun and moon to stand still. He is the same yesterday, today and forever! God can work supernaturally in our lives as well. We hope this sermon is faith-building in your life.

What does the Bible mean when it compares us to "Oaks of Righteousness?" What does the phrase, "A planting of the Lord" mean? How is God glorified by these "Oaks" that He has planted? Pastor Chad takes us through each phrase of Isaiah 61:3 to discover the deep and rich meanings of each phrase.

In week two of Beauty for Ashes, Pastor Chad explores why Christ has the ability to comfort all who mourn.
See why Isaiah pictures a funeral scene (ashes) with a wedding scene (headdress | oil of gladness | garment of praise).
The answer is because we are dead in our sins. Once Jesus has come into our lives, He becomes our Bride Groom and the Church is His Bride! Salvation takes us from being dead in sins to alive in Christ!
Discover Isaiah 61 with us phrase by phrase and see why Christ has the ability to comfort all who mourn.

In week 1 of Isaiah 61, Pastor Chad answers the question of why does Christ have the ability to work within our lives so powerfully. How does He have the ability to bind up the broken hearted? How does He have the ability to set the captives free or open the prison doors of those who bound?
The Biblical answer is that Christ has this ability because, "The Spirit of the Lord" has anointed Him to preach the good news to the poor.
This sermon and even the series, is about Christ's ability to work mightily in our lives.
