Setting Our Face Matthew 1-11 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:43:29 2013-03-24 EasterServing the LordProphecyFaithJesus: Servant of God Jesus: Servant of God Series Volume 2: On the day of Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem He had already determined that nothing was going to prevent Him from fulfilling the mission He had come for.

We will all face our time in the lion's den - that time when we have to make a decision to honor God or honor man - and suffer the consequences of honoring God. But is your God able to deliver you in these times?
For Such a Time as (What Is) This Esther 4 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:51:02 2013-09-22 GraceFaithSovereigntyChronological History of IsraelObedience The Chronological History of Israel and Judah Series - Number 145. "Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?". Why were you brought into the kingdom of God through your relationship with Jesus, to have a saved soul and a wasted life? On the contrary, we have been brought into a kingdom for such a time as this, but what is the 'this' to which God has called us?
Arise and Build Nehemiah 2:9-20 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:55:13 2013-11-24 FaithChronological History of IsraelSatanRestorationLeadership The Chronological History of Israel and Judah Series - Number 154. Continued study on Christian leadership. The wall that has been broken down can be used as an analogy for the openings in our own lives where we allow intruders, marauders and thieves to steal every valuable thing in our lives. But God has never intended us to live in that defeat.

With all trials, our ultimate victory is not surviving the trial, but getting back to the work, Because of the focused, faithful leadership of Nehemiah, the citizens of Jerusalem ultimately had victory in staving off their enemies, and rebuilding the wall. If you feel discouraged, threatened, fatigued, remember what you are working for - your family, your children, your friends, your home.
Long Faith and Obedience Matthew 1:18-25 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:47:31 2013-12-22 ChristmasFaithHopeObedience The focus and promise of Christmas is that He shall be called Immanuel, "God with us". With all that Mary and Joseph endured for the sake of bringing Messiah into the world they had to believe Jesus is Immanuel, that He is God with us. We can take solace and draw strength from their example.
Whatever He Tells You To Do. Do It John 2:1-11 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:31:27 2014-05-25 Serving the LordFaithObedienceChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 014. Jesus will often give us direct instructions without clear outcome. In the miracle of the water to wine, Jesus glorified Himself and let servants be a part of this wonderful event. It is still true today,
Follow Me Matthew 4:12-22 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:33:21 2014-07-20 GospelDiscipleshipEvangelismFaithRepentanceChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 21.

Fishers of Men Luke 4:42-5:11 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:36:46 2014-08-10 DiscipleshipServing the LordFaithChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 22. At some point in our relationship with Jesus we must realize that this is no mere walk with a friend discussing the events of the day or the matters of the heart. It is not a matter of getting wisdom so we can decide how to move forward with difficult decisions. It is about surrender.
Cleanse Me Luke 5:17-24 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:36:22 2014-08-17 SinMan's Sinful ConditionFaithRestorationChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 23. Have you allowed the cares of this world fester in your heart and your decisions? One disregarded sin can lead to decay and rot in our lives. We all need that cleansing word and loving touch from Jesus.
Unstoppable Faith Luke 5:17-26 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:36:35 2014-09-07 SinEvangelismFaithForgivenessChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 25. Four men were determined to bring their friend before Jesus, knowing that only He could save their friend. Jesus did not disappoint. Do we have such faith that neither obstacles nor crowds can keep us from bringing others to Christ?

A Moment of Honest Doubt Matthew 11:2-19 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:45:00 2015-02-08 FaithHopeChronological Life of JesusAnger Chronological Life of Jesus - 46 (Also Luke 7:18-35) Is it 'okay' to be angry with God, or to be disappointed in God? Do our circumstances justify accusations against God? John the Baptist sits rotting in prison and has an honest moment of doubt about who Jesus is and Jesus provides the most excellent answer.
Who is Forgiven Much Loves Much Luke 7:36-50 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:44:58 2015-02-15 SinMan's Sinful ConditionFaithLoveChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 47. There is no greater love for God than from the heart of one who recognizes the depth from which they have been saved. Do yo/u love God? Do you desire to be in His presence as this forgiven sinner
Fear Not Matthew 28 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:29:56 2015-04-05 EasterProphecyFaithFearWorry / Anxiety Resurrection Day Message. - We live in the same sinful and godless environment that Jesus died in - and in which the Gospel was spread. Can we live as though we believe that Jesus did indeed raise from the dead?
Who Is This? Matthew 8:20-34 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:44:18 2015-04-19 FaithSatanFearChronological Life of JesusWorry / Anxiety Chronological Life of Jesus - 53 (with reference to Mark 4:35-5:20, Luke 8:22-39). The demons knew Jesus, but His own disciples were still not sure - leaving them vunerable and fearful in the midst of a storm. When we forget who Jesus is, and what He promised we find ourselves in the same situation.
Only Believe Mark 5:21-43 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:40:51 2015-04-26 FaithFearHealingChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 54 (with reference to Matt 9:18-31, Luke 8:40-56). Three situations, 4 people demonstrating desparate faith. It is at these times when we truly find our need for Christ. Can we have that same sense of desparate need for Christ always?
Do You Want to Be Healed John 5:1-23 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:49:06 2015-05-03 FaithSovereigntyHealingChronological Life of JesusLegalism Chronological Life of Jesus - 55. Jesus asks a man who had been unable to move for almost 4 decades if he wanted to be healed. A question with greater meaning to us than we may think. But more importantly, Jesus shows the nature of God, and His own relationship to Him
Much From Little John 6:1-14 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:34:30 2015-06-28 FaithChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 061- (with reference to Matthew 14:13-21, Mark 6:30-44, Luke 9:10-17). There are two errors we continue to commit in our service to the Lord: 1) what we have to offer is not valuable to God; 2) we are responsible for the result. Neither of these are true as Jesus demonstrates in this beloved recounting of the feeding of the 5000.
Our Gracious Sentinel John 6:15-21 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:38:37 2015-07-05 FaithHopeObedienceChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 062 (with reference to Matthew 14:22-33, Mark 6:45-52)' It is often that we find ourselves in the middle of turmoil through daily living, or perhaps from stepping out in faith. Does that mean you are not doing what you should be doing, or quite the opposite? In this famous passage of Jesus walking on water the emphasis is not on the miracle but the message.
Does This Offend You? John 6:41-71 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:37:46 2015-08-02 DiscipleshipJesusGod the SonFaithAuthorityChronological Life of JesusSufficiency in Christ Chronological Life of Jesus - 064 - Everything that we strive for on this earth can only ever be temporary. But Jesus offers the bread of life which He promises to satisfy us completely and eternally. But He says that He is the only source for this eternal satisfaction. That is an offense to many. Is it to you?
Humble Faith Matthew 15:21-31 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:35:57 2015-08-16 PrayerFaithWorshipChronological Life of JesusHumility Chronological Life of Jesus - 066 (With reference to Mark 7:24-30). Do your prayers sometimes feel ignored, or unanswered? In this difficult passage it appears that Jesus is in a bad mood and needs to be convinced of the need to help a woman with a daughter who is possessed by a demon.
Sight and Vision Mark 8:1-26 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:35:01 2015-08-30 FaithHealingChronological Life of JesusMiracles Chronological Life of Jesus - 069 (With reference to Matthew 15:32-16:12) - Just because we have facts they don't necessarily add up to the truth. In these three interrelated passages in the life of Jesus point to what we lack when our sight overcomes our vision.
Who Do You Say I Am? Matthew 16:20-33 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:43:16 2015-09-06 DiscipleshipJesusGod the SonFaithChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 070 (With reference to Mark 8:27-30 and Luke 9:18-21) The most critical question we can ask and answer is posed here by Jesus. The result should determine how we live on earth, and will determine where we spend eternity.
Help My Unbelief Matthew 17:14-23 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:43:38 2015-10-18 PrayerFaithFastingChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 75 (with reference to Mark 9:14-32, Luke 9:37-45). Sometimes we need to confess our unbelief. In that humility is strength, and reminds us of our dependency on God.
The Unity of Faith and Obedience Luke 10:25-37 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:38:06 2016-01-24 FaithLoveObedienceChronological Life of JesusReligion Chronological Life of Jesus - 88 In this well known story of the Good Samaritan it is important not to rush to the moral of 'loving your neighbor' without recognizing that the greater point is how we justify our decisions.
The Downside of Gaining and Maintaiining Luke 12:13-34 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:48:02 2016-02-21 FaithFearChronological Life of JesusWorry / AnxietyContentment Chronological Life of Jesus -92. When we do not have we covet, when we have we worry. Do things have a greater place in your heart than God? Do you trust that God can provide for all your needs? In this continuation of Jesus' teaching it all comes back to our fear of God.
Investing In Our Future Luke 16:1-18 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:52:54 2016-04-24 FaithMoney and FinanceGiving / TithingChronological Life of JesusCharity Chronological Life of Jesus 100 - One of the greatest and most obvious measures of our devotion to God is how we use our resources. It is determined by how we view what 'belongs to me' vs what 'belongs to God'. Jesus teaches us here that we are not owners of anything - merely stewards. How then should we use that which has been entrusted to us?
Dealing with Offense Matthew 18:15-20 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:46:28 2016-05-08 Godly CharacterFaithLoveForgivenessRepentanceChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus 102 (with reference to Luke 17:1-6). Do you struggle with forgiving others, or being forgiven? Because we are human we will offend and we will be offended. Jesus makes it very clear how we are to handle both.
Where Are the Other Nine? Luke 17:11-19 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:40:54 2016-05-22 FaithChronological Life of JesusPraiseGratitude Chronological Life of Jesus 104 - Praise is important to God. It is an indication of our heart attitude toward Him. In this account of Jesus healing the 10 lepers, they were all cleansed of this chronic condition, but only one returned to thank Him. We are also cleansed of a chronic condition through Jesus; are we consistently thankful?
Like a Child Luke 18:9-17 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:37:48 2016-06-12 SalvationPrayerSinFaithPrideChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus 107 - God wants us to come to Him with the heart and attitude of a child that loves and trusts his parents. But we get older, more distrusting, more arrogant, more prideful. In this parable and the subsequent blessing of the children He calls us back to His loving arms as His adopted kids.
Confidence in the Good Shepherd John 10:22-44 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:41:52 2016-07-10 SalvationFaithChronological Life of JesusSufficiency in Christ Chronological Life of Jesus 111 - Have you ever wondered if your salvation will 'stick'? In this passage Jesus encourages us to hold firm to the promise that He will hold firm to us.
Even Now John 11:1-27 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:34:52 2016-07-31 FaithChronological Life of JesusWorry / AnxietyResurrectionSufficiency in Christ Chronological Life of Jesus 112 - How often have we taken it upon ourselves to instruct God in what He should do instead of realizing what He has done? In moments of grief, confusion, loss, we have all said at one time or another, "Lord, if you had been here..." In the first part of the narrative of Lazarus is a moment of despair quickly followed by a realization of faith.
Jesus Wept John 11:23-57 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:44:26 2016-08-07 FaithChronological Life of JesusDeathMiracles Chronological Life of Jesus 113 - Unfortunately even the most fantastic of miracles will not lead all to acknowledge their need for Jesus. God has been saddened by the effects of sin and death since the Garden. As this beloved account of Lazarus' restoration shows, Jesus is and always be the dividing point of humanity.
Moving from Darkness to Light Matthew 20 29-34 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:31:15 2016-08-28 PrayerFaithHealingChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus 115 (with reference to Mark 10 46-52; Luke 18 35-19 27) - Jesus is never too busy to hear an honest cry for help, and certainly not when it is our greatest of need - leaving the darkness of sin for the light of salvation.
To Seek and Save the Lost Luke 19:1-10 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:40:19 2016-09-04 SalvationEvangelismFaithRepentanceChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus 116 - We too frequently take it upon ourselvees to determine who is within reach of salvation. Jesus met up with Zacchaeous, one of the most hated people in Israel, for the soul purpose of bringing him the good news of salvation. Perhaps we all have a little Zacchaeous in us.
Corrupt and Fruitless Religion Mark 11:12-19 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:37:19 2016-10-02 PrayerFaithForgivenessChronological Life of JesusAnger Chronological Life of Jesus 119 (with reference to Matt 21:12-17; Luke 19:45-48) A great tragedy of humanity is the ability to display the outward signs of a relationship with God without it being real. As Jesus encountered this with the religious leaders of His day, He provided a message for all who walk aimlessly thinking they are right with God.
Abiding - Part 2 John 15:1-18 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:50:45 2017-03-05 God the FatherJesusGod the SonGod the Holy SpiritFaithObedienceChronological Life of JesusUpper Room DiscourseAbiding Chronological Life of Jesus - 139 - Jesus continues to love His disciples to the end as He assures them of a greater relationship with Him than what they currently enjoyed. He speaks of the importance of abiding -living in constant communion with Him that is important for disciples of all times and ages.
A Trial of Our Own Making John 18:12-27 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:46:31 2017-04-30 FaithTrialsCompromiseChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 146 (with reference to Matthew 26:57-75; Mark 14:53-72; Luke 22:54-71). While Jesus was being dragged into an illegal and unfair trial designed to condemn an innocent man, Peter was entering a trial of his own making. It wasn't that he failed so much as what he did to set himself up for failure. Sometimes what we think we are doing for God we are doing for ourselves.
Encountering the Living Christ Luke 24:13-36 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:47:03 2017-06-26 PrayerProphecyFaithWorshipChronological Life of Jesus Chronological Life of Jesus - 152 - We often walk in despondence because our hope is not misplaced but misguided. We want God to be something other than He is. As the men on the way to Emmaus discovered, Jesus is with us and we often can't see Him - and the remedy is the Word of God.
Faith in the Risen Christ John 20:19-32 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:55:39 2017-07-02 SalvationEvangelismGod the Holy SpiritFaithSabbathResting in the LordChronological Life of JesusResurrection Chronological Life of Jesus - 153 (with reference to Mark 16:14-18; Luke 24:36-48). The result of Jesus' work on the cross is salvation for all who receive it. For the first time in thier lives, after being with Jesus for 3 years, are finally at peace with God. It is no surprise that peace is the first message that Jesus brings them from the empty tomb.
Wrestling With God Genesis 32 22-28 Ed Radiger 00:43:46 2017-07-23 SalvationFaithGuest SpeakersRepentanceWorry / Anxiety Jacob spent most of his life avoiding the call God had on his life. It took multiple obstacles, visions and eventually a wrestling match before God became the Lord in his life. What are you wrestling with? Fear, anxiety, sin, avoiding God's call, or even His salvation? Ed Radiger walks us through the solution from God's Word.
Our Refuge and Strength Psalms 46 Ed Radiger 00:36:41 2017-09-10 FaithGuest SpeakersResting in the Lord Ed explores what it means to trust in God in the midst of any circumstance.
Joshua 14:6-15 and 15:13-19 Pastor Bob Claycamp 00:49:35 2017-10-08 FaithGuest SpeakersCourageVision Pastor Bob talks about Caleb, a man of faith, courage and vision, whom God used uniquely in a unique situation. In this, God gives us examples of faith that tells us that these things were not just for those in the Bible, but that He still wants to do those same things with us today.
Persecution and Prayer Acts 4:13-33 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:38:08 2017-10-22 PrayerEvangelismFaithChronological Study-Early ChurchPersecution 009 - Chronological Study of the Early Church. We must come to a point in our lives that we have to decide whether it is best to follow man or God. And the greatest response is not to appeal to man, but to God.
Boldness in Opposition Acts 5:13-43 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:41:16 2017-11-05 FaithHopeChronological Study-Early ChurchPersecutionPurity 011 - Chronological Study of the Early Church - The church's prayer for boldness was met with stiff opposition. That applies as much today as it did then. Whenever we are walking contrary to the world we can expect two things: the opposition of the world and the faithfulness of the Lord.
Practical, Faithful Religion James 1:9-27 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:58:02 2018-03-25 GraceFaithHypocrisyReligionChronological Study-Early Church 026 - Chronological Study of the Early Church - James continues to explore the trials that we face as Christians, while offering practical ways to escape temptations, and to live a life that brings pleasure to God and blessing to our lives and work.
Ruth 1 Brian Hedrick 00:57:03 2018-07-08 FaithHopeGuest Speakers
Introduction to the Thessalonian Letters 1 Thessalonians 1-10 Pastor Brian Nevins 00:52:01 2018-07-29 GraceEvangelismFaithLoveHope 038 - Chronological Study of the Early Church - After a very brief time, this immoral, idolatrous city was won for Christ in such a powerful way that their reputation preceded them. It was because, as Paul states, the Word went out with power and the Spirit. Will we allow ourselves to be so changed?
