We take a break from our systematic study of the Book of Acts as Dr. McCormick opens John 8 to lead us in a response to the United States' Supreme Court's decision on "marriage."

Throughout the course of human history, leaders and judges, secular and religious, have made decisions about morality.  Sometimes they get it right, other times they get it wrong.  In this message, Dr. McCormick uses an experience Jesus had with the Sanhedrin (the Jewish "Supreme Court") when they were making judgments to lead Israel down the Sliding Scale of human morality rather than God's.
We trust that the LORD will speak to you and give you the ability to respond in a Godly way to SCOTUS's decision.  May God bless you as you uphold his morality and Word.

Dr. Warner continues our systematic study of the Acts of the Apostles by taking us deeper into Chapter 9.  Specifically, we look at the amazing transformation of Rabbi Saul as the LORD changes his heart from murderer to mender, from attacker to Apostle.

Listen to this inspiring message and allow the LORD to touch your heart, even as he did Paul's.
May God bless you as you respond to his Word.

Dear Friends,


From the moment we are born until the day we die, life is full of transitions.  In fact, birth and death are transitions, themselves.   Some transitions are joyful - weddings, graduations, etc.  Others are not - divorce, for example.  In every transition, though, we know that God is present if not orchestrating it.


In this podcast, Dr. McCormick leads us through our systematic study of the Book of Acts into acts 9:17-31.  How do we manage our transitions as people who love Jesus?  Perhaps, by studying the major transition in Paul's life, when he went from Christian Killer to Apostle Evangelist to the Greeks, we will glean insights to the transitions of life so they will neither paralyze or perturb us.


May God bless you as you respond to his Word.

As we continue our study of the Gospel of John at The Well, we come to the point in Jesus' life that does not excite us: His Torture and Death.

We, as Christians, do not like to talk that much about this part of Jesus' life because it is painful, and we know, if we are honest, that we caused that pain.  Yet, in the torture of Jesus God was doing so much to confirm his love to us.  In the torture of Jesus, God was confirming that Jesus is the Messiah as He fulfills the Old Testament prophecies of the Suffering Servant.  In other words, if God is willing to fulfill his promises even when they are painful, we can rest in his good promises and his ability to fulfill them in our lives, too.
Listen to this full-service recording at The Well.  In the middle of the recording is the message preached by Pastor Kirk. And may God bless you as you respond to his Word.

In this message Dr. Warner keeps us on track with our systematic study of the Book of Acts.

Rabbi Saul was a very bright and enthusiastic keep of the Law.  He had studied under the premier mentor of his day. He had served the Temple faithfully. Now he was poised to become the greatest persecutor of the church...until God got his attention.
Saul's conversion to Paul is a testimony of the miracle-working power of God. Listen to this message and hear God's voice. As you respond, we thank God for his grace that changes lives.
God bless you!

Do you find it difficult to share your faith?  Are you intimidated at the thought of witnessing?  Do you avoid telling your "Jesus" story out of fear of what others may think?  If so, you are likely in the majority of Christians.

God has his remarkable ways of helping us to share the Gospel. In this message, Dr. McCormick leads us in our systematic study of the Book of Acts by showing us through the example of Philip's encounter with the Ethiopian Eunuch how God opens the door for the Gospel to be shared.
May God bless you as you respond in faith and trust to God's Word.

Tonight we study John 18:28-40 as Pastor Kirk leads us in our systematic study of the Gospel of John.  As always, we trust you'll be blessed by the entire service's recording here.  Gary Heck leads worship accompanied by Michael Freidank on the cajon.

In this message we focus on the legality of Jesus' arrest, but also the way that his arrest and imminent crucifixion was a fulfillment of prophesy, revealing God's master plan of salvation.
We trust that God will bless you as you participate in this service. Praise the Lord!

One of the fascinating helps in the Scriptures is the well-presented example and contrast between how we bless God by living in his ways and how we do not.  It's as if God is saying, "Who would your rather be?"

In Acts 8, Dr. McCormick continues our systematic study of the Book of Acts by teaching on Philip's encounter with Simon the Sorcerer.  Philip is living a Life Well-Lived...Simon is not.
Listen to this helpful message and see what the Lord will say to you. Respond as Holy Spirit guides and you, too, will live a Life Well-Lived.
God bless you!
