The Power of a Changed Life

December 31, 2017
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…
As believers, we must choose: Shall we serve sin and death? Or shall we serve Christ, our Liberator and Redeemer? Where are we striving to find satisfaction? It's not wrong…

Wrestling with God

This Old Testament story of Jacob wrestling with God has taken on a new and personal significance in my life as I wrestled with God in prayer over the life…
Bible Text: Colossians 3:5-11 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Colossians: Complete in Christ Almost all of Paul's letters are divided into two distinct sections. He begins with a doctrinal or theological section emphasizing right belief, and then he concludes with an ethical or practical section emphasizing right behavior.  Tonight, we are looking at what Paul says about some of the ugly things we need to take out of our lives as believers.

What Is Your Life?

November 6, 2016
Bible Text: James 4: | Preacher: Pastor Nathan Gregory - Bath Baptist Church In our passage tonight, James lays out a very heart-pricking challenge. It's one of those questions that are very pronounced. It's one of the main topics that are not only for our generation in this world today, but it's something that has really been around since the existence of humanity. It's been contemplated down through time. So tonight, let's look at the subject of this very important question from James: What is your life?
Bible Text: Colossians 2:4-10 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Colossians: Complete in Christ Knowing that there were wolves attacking the church in Colosse, the apostle Paul offered some encouragement and instruction, telling them that, by heeding his admonitions, the Colossians would overcome their enemies. The false teachers were telling the church there that there was more they needed to do, but Paul says, no, everything they need is in Jesus Christ. And today, everything we need is in Christ. We don't need something else. The Lord has given us all things that pertain to life in godliness.

Can a Christian Do That?

Bible Text: Romans 14:1-12 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace I think pretty much everyone agrees with me that the Church of Jesus Christ is made up of individuals at every possible level of spirituality. Some are aware of the freedom and liberty they enjoy in Jesus Christ and they live accordingly, led by the Spirit of God. There are others who live under legalism, operating by a list of dos and don'ts, and sometimes their list is longer than God's list. If that were the end of it, we would have no problem, but those who live on the far end of liberty in Christ are constantly being judged by those on the opposite end of the spectrum who live by a stricter standard, and vice versa. It's been said that one group flouts and one group flaunts; one group is called liberal and compromisers and the other is called legalistic and judgmental. In our text for today, the apostle Paul seeks to strike a balance for believers, and that's what we're looking at today.
Bible Text: Romans 10:16-21 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace In our passage today, Paul is continuing his appeal to the Jewish people. He has already shown them that they have had numerous opportunities in the past to enter God's salvation; however, he wants them to know that God is still working to bring them to faith in spite of their misunderstandings. One of the common misunderstandings of our day is that man somehow cooperates with God in bringing about salvation. People believe that they must be good to be accepted or that they must do certain things to please the Lord and earn His favor. But nothing could be further from the truth. Salvation from beginning to end is the work of God; we have nothing whatsoever to do with it. Israel was trying to attain a right standing before God based upon their works, but they stumbled over the Stumbling Stone of Jesus Christ. So, today we are looking at Israel's rejection of God.
