Enter Not into Temptation! (April 8, 2004)

In this sermon, Pastor Ray discusses why Jesus entered into the garden of Gethsemane (from Mark 14) and why we must do so as well, even though the reasons are much different. We need not enter into temptation if we’re willing to enter the garden of Gethsemane. If you’ve not made that decision, please listen to the message and determine in your heart that you will leave death and enter into life today.

Giant Killing! (2003)

This sermon unveils the lies of the modern worldly American church. We must lay down the lies of being somebody and simply be servants of the most high. It’s time to give up being successful in the eyes of the world and time to lift up the cross of Jesus. Listen to the sermon and determine in your heart that you will serve Jesus with all of your heart. It’s time that all giants be slayed in our life and that Jesus…

Stop Fighting God’s Work! (June 23, 2005)

This is the first sermon we’ve uploaded from Pastor Jan Greenley, who went home to be with Jesus in May 2010. She had boldness and a God-given ability to swing the sword. The sermon correlates to Monday’s broadcast. God brought Joseph to that dark night of his soul, when he was thrown into the pit. In that pit, Joseph made a determination to stop fighting God’s work. Surely that same thing happened to Peter, after he denied Jesus three times. Will…

When My Heart Grows Weary (March 20, 2008)

In this sermon, Pastor Ray encourages us to not allow any distance between our hearts and God’s heart. If you seek God, you will find him. God never gives up on your soul, even though bitterness and anguish may rise in our hearts. Pastor Ray recounts the heart of Jesus and the Holy Spirit unfolds Psalms 22, which describes the inner feelings of Jesus as he experienced Gethsemane and death on the cross. Be greatly encouraged as you listen to this short sermon and don’t give up,…

Lazarus, Come Forth! (July 6, 2006)

This is the story of Lazarus, the life of suffering as we surrender and fully give ourselves fully into the hands of Jesus. What the Lord does in our lives is not about us, it’s about the salvation of the lost. Is it alright that Jesus chooses your path? Listen to the call of Lazarus and the call for you and me.  Let Jesus uncover any hidden sin and get the victory fully in your life.

Disappointed by Jesus? (May 20, 2007)

Pastor Ray talks about how the disciples were utterly disappointed by Jesus as His crucifixion became readily apparent and their hopes of an earthly kingdom were utterly destroyed. His disciples had many false expectations. In our culture, we’ve depicted Jesus as  a “cotton-candy Jesus,” (i.e. a benevolent father-figure who only cares about meeting our needs and expectations) which has created many false expectations that we must face as we are crucified with Christ.  As the disciples made it all about themselves and…

The Lord Will Provide! (November 9, 2004)

In this sermon, Pastor Ray lays out the self-reliance of Abraham and how God ultimately transformed him. He was not unlike us, who have seen self-reliance as a virtue and not for what it actually is (i.e. pride). The Holy Spirit always goes for the root of sin, will you allow Him to expose and remove that in your heart today? Will you trust Jesus to be your provider or do you still want to be a little god?

Learning to Wait on God (June 22, 2014)

Although this isn’t one of the older sermons and not a classic in that sense of the word, it’s buried with all of the content here. One of the more difficult things to do as a follower of Jesus for most of us I believe is learning to wait for God. We’ve learned such trite phrases as “be all you can be” or “if it’s going to be, it’s up to me” that are contrary to the ways of God.…

Provoked to Pray! (2004)

This is an outstanding sermon on the topic of prayer. We don’t pray unless we must pray or perish. The time is quickly approaching where we must hear from God, simply to be able to survive. One of the great gifts of God is barrenness and famine, where we need to cry out, as we cannot deliver ourselves. Where is your heart today, has God provoked you to pray or have you believed the lie that you’re the man or the…

Hungry for Jesus? (December 22, 2006)

Pastor Ray talks about the prodigal son and asks the critical question are we hungry for Jesus or do find our sustenance elsewhere? We must carefully examine our lives to determine if all of our hunger is satisfied by Jesus or do we satiate our appetite for Jesus with something else?

An End to Self Absorption (in the Elijah Company) (2004)

One of the implied requirements to being a part of the Elijah company, is an utter end to the self absorption. It’s quite literally consumed most of my life “to be all you can be” and this is something that only Jesus can change. I encourage you to prayerfully listen and allow the Holy Spirit to quicken the message to your heart. It’s time to grow up in Jesus and allow God to begin to mold the Elijah company. I…

Is God an End, or a Means to an End? (Paris Reidhead, January 1, 1965)

There’s a pervasive attitude, especially in the modern American church, that God is simply a means rather than an end. We’ve  simply opted in large part to use God to get what we could from Him. So I will serve God as long as gives me what I want and then if He doesn’t give me what I desire than I’m out, or I’ll stay out of a sense of duty and become a religionist. Humanism has led to the shipwreck of many,…
