At this time of year, everybody is inundated with advertising to make a "new you," but if you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? God has…

Mission Possible

August 13, 2017
In our text today, we read the words of Jesus Himself as He gives us a command, and while it may seem like an impossible mission to us as human…
Bible Text: Colossians 3:1-4 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Colossians: Complete in Christ Tonight we begin our study of Colossians Chapter 3 in which the apostle Paul gives us practical applications of the doctrines that he has been teaching. It does little good if Christians declare the truth and defend the truth but fail to demonstrate the truth in their daily lives. These great truths of the Bible are not just to be understood but they're to be applied and lived out. If we share Christ's life, then we must also follow His example, so tonight, we'll be looking at how we should live since we are alive in Christ.

The Marks of a Missionary

October 16, 2016
Bible Text: Romans 15:14-21 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace This last section of the book of Romans is personal in nature but full of instruction. Before closing his letter, Paul shares his heart and his motives for service with the believers in Rome. This passage is one of the great missionary passages of the Bible, because, here, Paul lays out some of the basic strategy that made him one of the greatest missionaries of all time, if not the greatest. One thing that becomes clear about Paul is the fact that he had a heart for the lost. Paul was a powerful preacher and a great missionary throughout the Roman Empire, preaching and planting New Testament churches. He was a prolific writer and wrote half of the New Testament in numerous letters. Paul's heart ought to be our heart, that we would be engaged in the work of bringing others to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Bible Text: Colossians 1:21-2:3 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Colossians: Complete in Christ If you received a letter from a man you had never met, a man who was a prisoner, accused of being a troublemaker, how would you respond? That was the situation facing the believers in Colosse. They knew that the apostle Paul had been instrumental in leading their pastor Epaphras to faith in Jesus Christ and that Epaphras had gone to Rome to consult with Paul but had not yet returned. Paul's letter was delivered by Tichycus and Onesimus, so I'm sure Paul had anticipated what was happening at Colossae. The false teachers there had been discrediting Paul and placing doubt in people's minds concerning his ministry. He used this letter to explain his ministry and to encourage the church there.

That’s Really Living

July 31, 2016
Bible Text: Romans 12:11-13 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford There are a lot of people who are not really living; they're just existing. In our text today, the apostle Paul gives us eight directions or basic instructions on how to really live. I've put these into three categories on what real living is when it comes to having passion, handling problems, and helping people. Maybe there are some of you today who need to stop just enduring life and start enjoying it in Christ.

You and the Body

July 3, 2016
Bible Text: Romans 12:3-6a | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace Paul began this part of Romans by talking about the believer and his or her body, yielding our bodies to God as a living sacrifice, which is our spiritual act of worship because of His mercies to us.  Then Paul transitions to talking about the body... the body of Christ... and the remainder of this chapter is about the believer's place in and his duty to the body of Christ.
