Carrier

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: destruction, Grace, Obedience, righteousness, Salvation, sin

The extent of evil and violence in the human heart and the corruption which fills the earth grieves the heart of God (Gen 6:5-12). So He finds a righteous man, and by the obedience of that righteous man, God rescues and renews all of creation.  Text: Genesis 6:11-22, 7:13-17, 8:15-17; Romans 5:19

Restored Faithfulness

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: Faithfulness, family life, Marriage, Worship

Faithfulness is integral to the character of God. This quality of faithfulness is what God desires in the most intimate of human relationships, between and husband and wife in the home. To restore a heart of worship, we must guard our affections by grounding our actions and behavior in the character and faithfulness of God.  Text: Malachi 2:10-16

What if there was no Christmas?

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: Fear, God with us, Peace, promise of Immanuel, Trust

In a particularly dark time, God gives an enduring promise and a truth for His people to live into. This promise is in the name Immanuel, God-with-us. A promise which finds fulfillment in Jesus. This story leaves us with the question, “In whom are we trusting?” Because God is with us, we can face difficult and discouraging times.  Text: Isaiah 7:1-8:10

Set Free by truth: overcoming generational strongholds

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: Baptism, generational sin, Grace

God is right and just in holding both fathers and their children accountable for their rebellion against God. And yet, this cycle of generational sin need not be repeated. It has been broken. The blood of Jesus conquers all sin and judgment for all who believe, resulting in New Life as the ordinance of Baptism so richly illustrates.  Text: Exodus 34:5-7; Romans 6:1-14

Right With God

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: Faith, justification, restored to life

Since the Garden of Eden the relationship with God has been marred by our fallen human condition. Question: Can that alienated relationship be restored? Answer: Yes, the relationship can be restored. In this passage we discover a right standing with God is accessible to all who respond in faith to Jesus Christ.  Text: Romans 3:21-26

If others shape up, my life will work out (Lie #2)

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: slander, speech, words

Why do we wound other people with our words? Could it be we unwittingly buy into the lie that says, ‘when other people shape up, my life will improve’. The lie is as subtle as it is dangerous. James exposes the lie, and Jesus offers a much better way to live and speak with one another.  Text: James 4:11-12; John 13:34-35; Proverbs 19:10
