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.

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.

What did Paul mean when he wrote, "God has made us alive together with Christ"? In this Easter Sermon, Pastor Chad draws out the distinctions of chapter 2 showing that because we are dead in sins, it is the beautiful work of salvation that makes us alive to Christ. Because we once walked according to the course of this world, once we experience true salvation, it seats us in Heavenly places, meaning we are citizens of Heaven.

Verse 10 of 1 John 3 is the key verse to this section of the Apostle John's writing. He wants us to know if we are genuine, born again children of God.
It is interesting that federal agents who work for the Treasury Department who track down counterfeit money are able to spot counterfeits currency often just by touching it. How can they distinguish the difference between what is real and what is fake? You would think they studied fake money, but they don't. They study real money! The seals, the watermarks, the ink toner and much more. Because they study real currency, they are able to quickly spot counterfeit money.
In a similar way, John teaches what real, authentic Christians are like. By studying what Christians are to be like, it can help you gauge if you are truly born again.
This sermon is the conclusion of a three week study of 1 John.

Most Americans do not consider themselves rich, especially when comparing ourselves to celebrities or athletes. However, when you compare our incomes to those of the average global incomes, it becomes very clear how rich we really are.
As a matter of fact, if you have sufficient food, adequate shelter, decent clothing and reliable transportation you are considered among the world's wealthy.
It is important to understand how blessed we are because the Bible has very specific instructions to the "rich of this present age." The Bible says to "charge them" or instruct, command or teach them how to view their riches.
So in week 3 of Right on the Money, 1 Timothy 6 has a great to say to us...we who own a good living. In reality, we are loaded. Let's learn together what God expects us to do with our wealth.
